I recall you saying you would rather have Bynum than Howard.

probably did say that. I like Bynum a lot, probably a lot more than any other Lakers' fan ever did, and will probably continue cheering for him with the Sixers.

Howard has pulled a complete 180 for me as he's just turned into a fucking bitch over the past year and my opinion of him won't change just because he's a Laker now.

that being said, Howard's defense is still far better than Bynum's as he can defend the pick and roll and stop driving guards a lot better. Bynum is far better on offense, but Pau is still one of the best low post players in the NBA as his footwork is amazing as is his faceup game.

Nash/Blake
Bryant/Meeks
Artest/Ebanks
Gasol/Jaminson
Howard/Hill

is very scary, not because of our big four, but because of our depth. This team is probably better than our championship teams tbh.


for those saying Heat could cause some damage with a small lineup, once again, we could go zone. I know most of you will that didn't work very well for every other team, but we have the personnel to play a great zone against them. Man to man would be fine too as long as we get the help defense down right we can probably leave Bosh some space and then close out on him.

The Celtics & Knicks were both top 5 defenses last year and their zone didn't stop the Miami attack.

Miami has gotten much better at playing against the zone and adding now that they have very good shooters in Ray, Chalmers, Rashard and Battier, it really isn't the same as it was in the 2010-11 season.

Knicks' defense overachieved due to Chandler(and Shump, who was hurt during the series). They don't have the complete personnel to defend it like we do. Same with Celtics(who were also missing Bradley and had other injuries of their own, such as Pierce, which slowed them down).

We have Kobe, Metta, Pau, and Howard, who are all good-great defenders. We should be fine on the defensive end to be honest.

I don't even think we'll get a Lakers-Heat Finals, one of them won't make it.

Bill Simmons also brought up a great point. It's gonna be interesting to see what OKC does with Perkins now since the Lakers acquired Dwight. IIRC they have to amnesty Perkins to re-sign both Harden & Ibaka, they amnesty Perkins and they lose their only hope at defending Dwight. Highly doubt Cole Aldrich, Thabeet or Daniel Orton can defend Dwight.
