Yes I'm aware it's the NBA and stuff like this happens a lot, but I didn't find Miami beating Orlando impressive either.

Kobe is having his best season in years, yes, I'm not denying that. However, if he's so great his team wouldn't be this bad. I just can't see another elite player in the NBA playing with Dwight Howard, Pau Gasol and Steve Nash and still struggling to make the playoffs. CP3 was taking David West and role players to the playoffs every year in New Orleans. LeBron took a bunch of scrubs to the Finals. Durant with a big Dwight would be crazy. Carmelo has never missed the playoffs in his career.
Yeah they are big names on paper but near the players they used to be. Dwight Howard actually can be curse in 4th quarter due to god awful free throw shooting. Hack a Howard happened few times last night like it has all season long. Nash is basically spot up shooter now nothing wrong with it he's 39 years old nearing the end of his playing career. lol Durant has better coaching and better players around him than Kobe does. Also with the bench. Durant gets more calls than anyone you touch him and it's a automatic foul. So? Lakers in playoffs 2011 beat CP3 and Hornets. Yeah Lebron took scrubs to finals but back than East was way way weak compared to the West when you have teams like Lakers, Spurs, Mavericks, Trail Blazers, etc. Back than, those teams were loaded with talent.

But the question is, how much of a window do the Lakers have? Nash has declined since leaving Phoenix and he's pushing 40. Pau has gotten worse every year for the past three seasons. I don't know if Kobe will be able to duplicate this level of play for next season.

I originally said the Lakers with this current core they have had a two-year window at best, but I don't know if that's true anymore.
With current roster 1 to 2 years max. They are old and time is ticking away. I believe Kobe can play until late 30's and average 20 or 25 up to him if wants keep playing or retire. 2014 right around the corner they will have to get young FA star. Kyrie Irving for example.

Scott Brooks isn't that much better than Pringles. His offensive gameplan is full of isos. His gameplan on both ends of the floor are pretty generic and mediocre, it's just that Durant and co. are young and athletic and they make it work. Yeah I know about Durant's protection with the refs. He's the NBA's golden boy, you know how it is.

I don't see how the Lakers beating the Hornets in 2011 changes my statement about CP3. But to the same extent, I'm pretty confident if David West wasn't hurt the Hornets would've beaten the Lakers that year. The year LeBron took those scrubs to the Finals...the Lakers were a 1st round exit, the Mavs were a 1st round exit and the Blazers weren't even in the playoffs so I don't see why you brought them up.

And the Lakers aren't getting Kyrie Irving. No chance in hell. At least not as soon as 2014. Pretty sure he'll get a max contract extension next season due to the Derrick Rose rule.

Obviously guys, in two years, LeBron and Kobe will both go to Chicago with Rose and Chicago will be coached by Tom Thibodeau and Phil Jackson, as dual head coaches.

I wold take Scott Brooks over Dan D'Antoni any day and twice on Sunday's. D'Antoni knows nothing on defense and matchups. What I read and heard from players that played with him said during practice they would spend like 15 minutes on defense rest of offense. Back than Kobe had Smush Parker, Brain Cooking Kwame Brown, and Luke Walton of the world crazy part is they were starters where are they now? Out of NBA. Kobe cast was worse than Lebrons along with Kobe playing in West was worse in my view. East back than had cake walk to Finals whoever won West was going win NBA Finals more likely than not. Yeah I said 2014 not now.

I'm aware that you said 2014. But the Lakers aren't getting Kyrie Irving then. He's gonna be in Cleveland for at least the next 4-5 years.

We shall see. I wouldent rule it out. Who knows for all we know Lebron can become a Laker come 2014 when his contract is up along with Miami Heat being over the cap. They will have to dump some salary. God I hope not though. Lebron in Lakers uniform would make me sick.
