I believe if everyone is healthy the Lakers will compete for the last playoff spot in the West. It will be a very similar season to last season.
Once again, this is assuming everyone is healthy, including Kobe.
But, here is Kobe’s reaction to seeing ESPN saying they would finished 12th.
12th I see..

I think #ESPNForecast picking the Lakers to finish 12th in the West may be the best thing to happen to the Lakers this off-season.
