As a team, the Lakers are in a tailspin. What about each individual player?

Losers of eight of their last nine games heading into Wednesday night's action, the Los Angeles Lakers are sliding down everyone's power rankings lately.

Marc Stein of ESPN.com had L.A. 26th in his latest poll, while NBA.com's John Schuhmann rated them 24th overall—drops of five and three spots, respectively, in the last week.

Looking at each player individually, though, it hasn't been all bad. Some guys are actually trending upwards over the Lakers' recent stretch of games.

Here, then, is the final installment of the Player Power Rankings for the Lakers for the first half of the season, with heavy emphasis placed on performance over L.A.'s last 10 contests.
