They are in a VERY COMPETITIVE West.
We don't know how long it will take this team to come together, it could be a week or it could be a month, or longer!
unfortunately, barring injuries i think they will gel and be in contention in the west. once you put it together, it doesn't matter how bad you were in the first few games of the season.
trust me, i would definitely not mind the lakers crashing and burning this season. but with the talent on that team, i just don't see it. i think they get it together and when they do, they will be one of the best teams in the west.
