They've been in the playoffs 8 of the last 9 years.

They also put together a pretty good team about 5-6 years back that then got destroyed by injuries.

Frankly I think they've been reasonably well run...maybe average by NBA standards.

As much as some things they do annoy me, they're nowhere near the worst run teams I listed.

The over-under on the Lakers win total for the season is 36.5 last I saw which is super high in most peoples opinion.

I don't see them making the playoffs...maybe somewhere between 20th and 26th in the league.

I will say this much, that 36.5 is eye popping, there is a lot of irrational exuberance over Ball doing well in Summer league against 3rd tier talent.

I'd suggest any gamblers out there jumping all over the under on that one.

If they played in the east then perhaps, but the west is too tough and Ball is still just a young rookie that is still developing.

Don't be a doubter, Lavar is going to will them to at least 10 wins let alone Lonzo's on court brilliance! 42 wins

lol....I think an over\under more like 30.5 is more realistic but who am I to argue with people betting their hard earned cash?

Maybe they'll fire Walton and make Lavar coach or better yet....public relations head.
