Los Angeles Lakers Predictions: Complete Stat Projections for Lakers Starters

Since the Los Angeles Lakers lost to the Dallas Mavericks in the 2011 NBA playoffs, things have been quite interesting, to say the least.

While many believed the Lakers roster would improve mightily during the offseason, the opposite has unfortunately taken place.

The Lakers traded one of their best players, Lamar Odom, to the rival Dallas Mavericks. By doing so, the team lost one of its biggest advantages: size.

In addition, the team has yet to solve its issues at the point guard position—37-year-old Derek Fisher, often ineffective Steve Blake and rookie Darius Morris are all they have.

Clearly, the Lakers have even more questions to answer than answers themselves, and it will be up to new head coach Mike Brown to discover the answers regarding the Lakers lineup.

Already, it has been made evident that the Lakers’ starting lineup will consist of Derek Fisher, Kobe Bryant, Matt Barnes, Pau Gasol and Andrew Bynum.

But how will each of these players statistically contribute to the team’s success in this year's shortened NBA season?

This is a question that no one can clearly answer, not even Mike Brown.

One can only predict.

I have taken the challenge upon myself, and I have predicted the statistical performance of each of the Lakers’ starters here.

Enjoy, and let your opinions be heard.
