The Los Angeles Lakers need to do something.
They are not the same powerhouse they were in the last two or three seasons. Kobe Bryant is older, Pau Gasol is working too hard, Andrew Bynum is still struggling back from knee surgery, and Derek Fisher looks like his age has finally caught up with him.
The Lakers don't look like a team that will be able to turn it on this year.
They tried against the Spurs last week and failed because of a last second tip-in. They did step up to beat the Celtics this weekend, but it was not all that pretty.
They have some pieces, let's see which ones are most expendable.
