Re: NBA Offseason Thread 2012
This Lakers team has a window just like the Big 3 Celtics, maybe slightly smaller. The Big 3 Celtics were originally expected to have just a three-year window but then in that third season, Rondo cemented himself as one of the top PG's in the league and carried the team to the Finals which every year since has delayed the inevitable of blowing the team up. Although, I think Danny Ainge may be following the Spurs method of just re-tooling every year with a mix of young guys and vets.
Anyway yeah, Lakers have a 2 year window at worst, 3 year window at best as championship contenders IMO. This Laker team with Dwight, Kobe, Pau & Nash that is.
