Kobe Bryant is focused and at the top of his game. With Andrew Bynum back at Center the Lakers are looking like the team to beat. After winning the Western Conference the Lakers fell to their ancient rival the Boston Celtics.
It's not going to easy however, as the Western Conference still has most of the best teams.
The East doesn't look much different from last year with Boston being the class act. Detroit maybe there and Lebron is going to make Cleveland a team to contend with as usual.
But, for an old Laker fan like me...it's all about fun when the NBA gets underway next
