Post 2014 NBA All-Star Break Predictions for Los Angeles Lakers

The first half of the 2013-14 NBA season wasn’t what the Los Angeles Lakers envisioned, as the injury-riddled roster stumbled to an 18-35 record entering the All-Star break—tied for the worst mark in the Western Conference with the Sacramento Kings.

The Lakers sit 13 games behind the eighth-place Golden State Warriors and are very much in the midst of a lost season. But can the storied franchise gain any sort of momentum in the second half?

Future Hall of Fame shooting guard Kobe Bryant still plans to return to the court this season, telling ESPN’s Dave McMenamin earlier this month, “My plan hasn’t changed.”

Steve Nash and Nick Young could also make comebacks from injury, but at this point the Lakers may be better off tanking for better draft position. They essentially have zero chance at making the playoffs after all.

Nothing has gone right for the Lakers in this campaign, so it’s time for the organization to limp through the rest of the season and look toward the future.
