the three superstars have not even finished signing on the dotted line and are already proclaiming them champions. Is it justified or are people prisoners of the moment?

Nobody is sleeping on the Lakers.

It's all hype for right now which is understandable.

I think people are sleeping on the other elite teams if anything.

Sleeping just on the lakers? How about sleeping on the lakers, celtics and magic. Those 3 TEAMS are better than the heat right now.

The Heat will have a lot of trouble with LA, Bynum healthy would dominate any center the Heat could land, Pau will outplay Bosh on both ends, Kobe can check Wade, while Ron will make Lebron work... Not title favs yet, but they're the favs to win the East.

Only idiots are sleeping on the Lakers, they still have the most talented roster in the league with Gasol, Kobe, Odom. Bynum, Artest, etc.

No they are not. People who think that if Miami sets the rest of their roster out decently that they will win it all aren't wrong either.

Suddenly LA Lakers aren't as big of d-bags as I thought. (Key words 'as big.')

I wouldn't worry about what team the media or whomever else is hyping as the consensus champion at this stage of the off-season. We all know that the REAL work gets done during the season and the REAL season starts in the playoffs.

"In reality, Dan Marino did us all a favor by losing Super Bowl XIX to the San Francisco 49ers. If he had won even one Super Bowl, the Greatest Quarterback of All Time would not be up for discussion."

by the way this is ridiculous...Montana all day every day >>> marino

sorry for off topic but necessary

I think people recognize the Heat as contenders but I'm not ready to say they have locked up the title for the next 5 years.

Lakers are still have a very good team and defensively, they pair up with Miami nicely. Kobe on Wade, Artest on Lebron and Odom on Bosh.

I'm holding out on the bulls to see if Noah can be a consistent rebounder/defender down in the post but I like their team setup with rose, deng, noah, gibson, and boozer.

Miami still doesn't match up with LA however they do become an "Elite" team just wont win as long as Kobe is in LA.


On a side note I wonder how many new HEAT fans we'll have here on PSD....?

Ugh soooooo many people are going to hop on the bandwagon?

IF Bynum stays healthy all Season, I think Miami would be very screwed against the Lakers but that's a big IF.

Exactly!!! But hopefully both teams get upset next year.

LA will win it again, and get that 2nd 3-peat. I know the Heat just got much better, but teams like Boston and LA are not the least bit scared becuz they know that they are still better TEAMS with much more depth. Orlando is not about to roll over either, and neither will Dallas, Denver, Portland, Chicago, or OKC for that matter. Miami is not guaranteed anything. That's not wishful thinking, it's just the honest truth. Things will be very interesting.

remember kiddies, phil jackson wins championships in threes. heat still need some more players but it's still early in free agency. right now the lakers and celtics are ahead of the heat. and the magic aren't far behind.

Miami's big 3 is better than LA's big 3, but we need the other surrounding talent to beat them.

Most likely-

LeBron>Kobe
Wade>Artest
Bosh=<Gasol

Bynum, Odom, Brown> Anything the Heat get

I'm Lakerfan and yes the Heat got alott better, but there are plenty of teams that can beat the heat in the Playoffs. The Laker Org will always be relevant! X2 Bring It.

If Lakers can stay heathy upfront with Bynum and Gasol there is no way anyone in the NBA can beat the lakers. They might have a chance if Bynum isnt there but Miami will have no size to match up with Gasol and Bynum. Bosh is very soft and Miami will probably have some vets minimum guy playing center. Artest and Kobe will slow Dwade and Lebron down like they usually do against them. The Lakers will have a better bench no doubt because Heat wil have all second round rookies and vets minimum players. They spent all their money on the big three. They have none left to pay anyone else other than vets minimum

If heathly kobe is still equal if not better than Lebron.

Lebron=Kobe
Wade>Artest
Bosh=<Gasol

Bynum, Odom, Blake, and Hopefully Fisher and Raja Bell. The lakers still have a way better overall team than Heat. The Heat will have their roster filled with 2nd round rookies and vets minimum players. They might be a real threat to lakers after this season but this season they are not quite there even with the "big 3" . Heat will have to wait unitl at least 2012 to win a championship when Lakers are old
