Its coming down to the wire. Presently the Lakers sit in the 8th playoff spot in the west. They are jousting with Utah (I think) in order to win the right to be destroyed by the Thunder or Spurs. With that said, its hard to bet against Kobe Bryant. Time and time again, I have tried to hate on him, but he seems to find a way to come through. I am actually rooting for him because, if they get in the playoffs, they will be dangerous if they can get healthy. It helps to have Pau Gasol back and Steve Nash will be back soon as well. If they get in, it could be interesting. That is a big IF. Maybe they get matched up with the Spurs and are set for an upset. OKC will kill them. Go Kobe, do the thing!
