Speaking for someone who was watching during in Dr. J's days, the early to late 80s Lakers, the awful early 90s/Del Harris and Randy Pfund eras, the most recent Laker run, the Celtics of Bird, McHale and Parrish and right up until now - I do think this team will (without any doubt) be right up there with the best of all time.
I mean take a second and really examine this team - 9 to 10 players deep, almost every player is a 2 position player and the starting five alone average around 108 a game! Factor in any bench play and we're talking an absolutely unstoppable force on the court at all times. Offensively and defensviely one of the nastiest lineups to ever hit any court!! And we get to see every game of it!
My god, I have always hated the "NBAless" summers, but this one is going to kill me. The thought of them holding up those jersies at their press conference and the roar the starters will receive on opening night will be something to tell your grandchildren about! I'm getting chills just typing this stuff. The new season can't come fast enough.
