I did a similar story last year, a little ways into the season. Several people were skeptical about the points that I made, most notably Jeremy Hansen.
I am going to be bold enough now to say, before the season starts, that the Lakers will win the NBA Championship because of these five listed reasons. I dont see a reason why they shouldn't win, considering they have a better team than last year.
And if they do lose, I will personally burn my Lamar Odom jersey.
