How long will it take Julius Randle to enter the Los Angeles Lakers staring lineup in 2014-15?

The Los Angeles Lakers are one of the most storied franchises in the NBA, but they enter the 2014-15 season with more questions than answers.

For starters: How much pressure are they going to put on Kobe Bryant entering his 19th season? Then there's the battle at power forward, as Julius Randle and Carlos Boozer are both seemingly worthy of starting spots with a playoff berth looking like a long shot.

In 2013-14, there was the question of whether fans even wanted this team to win games, as a draft pick was on the line. However, that narrative no longer applies, as L.A.'s 2015 selection is on its way to Phoenix regardless of how many wins it picks up this upcoming season.

Can the Lakers compete for a playoff spot in 2015? The odds are against them, but this team will do whatever it can to be competitive.

The Lakers aren't the tanking type, and as a result, they'll look to turn things around as soon as possible—especially with a stacked 2015 draft class ready to come in and potentially make a difference this upcoming offseason.
