The Los Angeles Lakers have 21 games remaining on their schedule before the postseason starts. And with new faces—welcome to Los Angeles, Ramon Sessions and Jordan Hill—who are only expected to improve the team, combined with the efforts of the team's big three (Kobe Bryant, Pau Gasol and Andrew Bynum), it’s not crazy to think the Lakers could make some noise in the playoffs this spring.
But at the same time, the team has plenty of areas in which they still need to vastly improve, in addition to having to potentially deal with a couple of new problems by adding the likes of Sessions and Hill.
So sit back and let's take a look at both the good and the bad of the new-look Los Angeles Lakers.
We will start with the bad and work our way into the good.
