James Worthy Says Heat Still Have The Edge Over The Lakers

Los Angeles Lakers legend James Worthy has a new gig as a studio analyst with the teams Time Warner Cable SportsNet network and he’s doing a lot of talking the past couple of weeks.

Big game James let it be known a few weeks ago that he didn’t like Dwight Howard because of his attitude.

Worthy is talking again this time doing his job and analyzing the upcoming NBA season.

Worthy gave his insights and opinion to the Los Angeles Times on who the team to beat in the NBA is at this current moment.

Worthy was asked about the Lakers overtaking OKC in the west.

“Oklahoma City is younger. But with Dwight in at the same time with Pau, with Steve Nash, that makes a big difference. Last year, Ramon Sessions was young. Before Howard, the Lakers were second or third in the West. But with getting a 38-year-old point guard that still has some left and bringing in a franchise player, that puts them right back at the top. I don’t think too many people will bet against the Lakers against anybody in the West, assuming they’re a healthy team. But they still have to make it happen.”

Worthy was asked about the Heat.

“I would have to say Miami still has a little edge simply because they won last year. It will be so much easier for them to win again because they know how to do it. With them adding Ray Allen andRashard Lewis, they have tremendous scorers and three-point shooters off the bench. Then they also have the greatest player in the game with LeBron James. I give them the edge because they’re defending champions.”

James Worthy has ring protection so he can essentially talk all he wants.

Regardless of the fact that it seems like he’s not feeling this Laker team, but I could be wrong.
