I agree with Alec. If Yao and T-mac play like they can, thats pretty scarry, its almost like Kobe and Shaq 3 or 4 years ago. Remember when it was Lakers and Spurs alternating Championships for 10 years?
I think Yao and T-mac can do that, but T-mac has got to stay healthy and Yao needs to be more like the great wall and less like the great marshmellow.
I'm a laker fan so I'm prolly being homerist, but watching them play the Suns, they were screwing up the defensive boards and hustle plays when they had position. Thats fixable, where as the suns having crappy post presence is unfixable.
Lakers have as good a chance of beating the Suns as they did last year. Also, Amare Stoudamire, I really don't like that guy. He's like a football player trying to play basketball, he's in the wrong sport.
