It seems like the team that win the Championship have been unable to defend their championship because one or two of their main players has been sidelined by injury since 06/07 season.

06/07: Wade/Shaq got injured
07/08: Ginobli injured
08/09: KG injured
09/10: we shall see but Gasol is not looking good.

being healthy now means nothing. As has been shown the last 2 years, whichever elite team enters the playoffs healthy has won it.

Guess were talking about within the last few years, because the Lakers three-peat, both Bulls three-peat and the 1960s Celtics would all have something to say about this. A couple of other teams on that list as well, just don't care to recall all of them.

Players get injured all the time.

You just looking too hard.

I can say that every last place team gets an injured player.

Perhaps the long grind it takes to win an nba champiopnship has lingering effects on players the next season. Maybe the reason why San Antonio could only win the title every other year and why it is so hard to repeat.

Lakers will be fine... they are the defending Champs, so every team is going to up their game against them. they really dont have anything to prove this year. they wont be 72-10, they probably wont have a better record then Boston, but they have a good shot a making it to the finals again.

RELAX..
