1) Lakers 1 seed? Lol. What is this 2009? They have no PG. They have the worst bench in the NBA. They are SEVEN games behind the Thunder. SEVEN! If the Thunder go 16-16 over the second half (which won't happen unless Durant and Westbrook get hurt) Lakers will have to go 24-10 to pass them. The Lakers have somehow not lost a single game to injury or more importantly rest with their big three of Kobe, Gasol, and Bynum. You honestly think they are going to go on that sort of run and have the Thunder, Spurs, and Clippers collapse over the last half while having no injuries at all? Ya, not going to happen. The Lakers will be lucky to get above the 6 seed in the West. It is completely baffling that that team is 5th right now. They are 2 games away from not being a playoff team at all so to say they will wind up first is at best homerism and at worst stupidity.
