The Lakers are the furthest thing from a darkhorse you can be. They still have very little chemistry, and they cant stop any team with quick PG's. So lets review the playoff teams PGs:
Parker, Westbrook, Paul, Curry, Conley, Lawson, Lin
Add in the fact that they cant guard the 3 either because of the idiot 1 man zone who's going to die on the court from exhaustion and terrible defence, and you have a recipe for a defensive disaster.
But I still want to see them make the playoffs, so they get embarrassed infront of the world. Not making the playoffs isn't enough for me, it's too easy.
