In theory, life is peachy for Laker fans and Kobe Bryant. They have a balanced roster, fit with the game's best center and one of its best point guards. Pau Gasol is an All-Star, if not a superstar, and yet he's the fourth option on this high-powered team.

So what are the main obstacles in L.A.'s way as it forges forth with this reloaded roster? How can a super-team meet its demise?
