The Los Angeles Lakers have been talk of NBA free agency this summer, and for good reason.

Not only was L.A. able to fill a huge area of need by securing a top-5 point guard in Steve Nash, the Lakers were also shrewd enough to land Dwight Howard to compliment Nash, Kobe Bryant and Pau Gasol, giving them arguably the best starting five in the league.
