The worst thing that can happen to the Lakers is their two oldest starters going down with injuries.
Obviously, this is not something that should be expected, but you never know in the NBA these days. Kobe has always had durability issues, but he has been remarkable in playing through pain.
With that said, it is not out of the question for him to miss games due to injury.
Nash has been durable throughout his career, but the man is nearly 40. Phoenix's training staff is one of the best in the league, which prevented Nash from getting hurt in the last few years.
Should both Nash and Kobe go down, the lineup will be somewhat similar to what Orlando ran with Dwight.
Howard will have the help of Gasol, but he will also have shooters on the outside to give the ball to for open threes. The Lakers will take on a more inside-outside approach with this lineup.
The reason I don't have Jamison starting is because the bench will need to play a bigger role while Nash and Kobe are down. The starting lineup won't play many minutes together, and guys will be in and out of the game.
Again, this is not something Laker fans should expect, but it's not that ridiculous of a scenario.
