    Do you think the Lakers could do what the 94-95 Rockets did?

    The 1994-1995 Houston Rockets went 47-35 that year and was placed the 6th seed in the west. They went on to win the championship that year.

    Do you think the Lakers fully healthy, and can capture the 6th seed make a run for the championship like the Rockets?

    Yes on talent and players.

    No on coaching staff.

    Yes I do, Actually by starting this post you have read my mind. The team has some simularities. However, D'Antoni's reluctance to open his bench and change his rotations and philosophies may be our downfall. Also Dwight Howard would have to summon his inner Olajuwon and because of his physical issues (Though he is playing a lot better) can do it. But yes if we catch some breaks, And we get awfully hot and get the right matchups. It can happen! I know that's a lot of if's....Stranger things in the world have happened.

    If the big 4 can all stay healthy for the duration of the season... there is no reason they could get hot and go on a run... it's not likely, but it's a possibility. But getting through 3 rounds of playoffs against (in no particular order), OKC, SA, Memphis, Denver and Clippers and then meeting the Heat in the finals, is a pretty daunting task.

    then he needs about 2 inches of height, 15 more lbs, a few more inches in reach, about 4-5 more post moves, bigger hands, lower his turnovers and be a better passer, so not that far away.

    stupid postless idiot couldnt' even destroy Luis Scola, LUIS SCOLA!!!! A true superstar sees a 6'9 dude with poor defense and drools, this derp couldn't hit a shot. even if he were tired, if he had any semblance of a post move he'd have killed him, freakin andrew bynum wouldn't destroyed scola.

    This is how we do it! I still believe

    howard is probably a little bit taller (depending on the source). Dwight is also heavier and has a longer wingspan, but you're right about the post moves. However, it's hard to be effective down low when your mobility is hindered. I'm pretty sure I've seen dwight dominate guys like scola when he was in orlando.

    Howad has a very good defense right now,not his 100%,but Hakeem would kill him with his post moves. He was SO elegant and SO beautiful doing those post moves. Anyway call me back when Howard will do something like this:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0GCyU0sKxqI

    The 94-95 Rockets were actually coming off a championship the previous yr, and had just added Clyde Drexler to a core, a group of players, a system and coach that they already had in place.

    Can't compare those Rockets with these Lakers as everyone is different from last yr with the exception of Kobe, Pau, Ron, Blake and our young guns Morris and Eblanks. And plus, the D'Antoni offense is poo-poo.
