Nash isn't a good defender, Kobe has taken a step back to say the least, Pau is horrible, and Dwight physically isn't all there yet. 2 of our starting big men aren't healthy, and I don't see Howard becoming that "elite player" in the league soon, he probably won't even this year, he had back surgery can't really expect it. Pau Gasol is done plain and simple. So now we have our starters who are very much so underachieving accompanied with our at best inconsistent bench and its not a good recipe. Old age, lack of defense, lack of depth, and the health of our team, they really don't stand a chance right now. Current roster as is will probably see a first round exit at best.
I don't necessarily agree. See my post in the last page, I explained my stance on why I believe if the team makes the playoffs then we could do some damage.
