NBA season might be over but that does not stop teams from getting ready for the next one. Trading of players is hot right now and many basket ball players are seeing themselves changing uniforms.
Miami Heat might have won the 2012 NBA championship but that’s not enough reason for them to rest on their laurels. Having gone through and covered all of their weaknesses, the LA Lakers have come up with a line up that promises to deliver. That being the case, LA Lakers might just be the team to beat in next year’s NBA season.
The Los Angeles Lakers was founded in 1947 but was able to join the MBA in 1948. Some of its most notable players are Slava Medvedenko, Dennis Rodman, Jerry West, Magic Johnson, and Shaquille O’Neal. And who would ever forget Kobe Bryant?
After a four-team trade just a few weeks ago, many fans had gotten early their Christmas wish with Dwight Hoard joining the Lakers and donning the yellow and purple uniform. Actually, may fans have already speculated on this having seen him around the LA area making one of the busiest player during the off season. Aside from Dwight Howard, Steve Nash as well as Chris Duhon and Earl Clark also join the LA Lakers. From the looks of it, LA Lakers now has a Big Four with Dwight Howard, Steve Nash, Kobe Bryant, and Pau Gasol, which they could use against Miami Heat’s Big Three (Lebron James, Dwyane Wade, and Chris Bosh). Howard and Nash came with a price with Lakers losing both Andrew Bynum and Lamar Odom.
With the “Big Four” in place, it is easy to see how the Lakers have become the current talk of the town with many speculating that they could make a good running for the NBA championship next season.
Wondering what’s the impact on having the Big Four on the court? Imagine having Howard, Gasol and World Peace as your small forward, power forward, and center. With a frontcourt like that, it would be very hard for the offensive to find an opening and push through the basket. In the same line, it would be hard to imagine putting a fast one on Gasol as he manages fast breaks one after the next. No matter how many shooters the other team might havem it would definitely be challenging for them to go against the formidable four.
One dark cloud in the horizon, however, would be the fact that it is still Bryant’s team and Dwight Howard might not yet be ready for that. One has to remember that Howard made a fuss while he was still in Orlando Magic. When he finds out that he might not be the star that he wanted to be when he joins LA Lakers, it might create a problem between him and Bryant.
