Los Angeles Lakers Best- and Worst-Case Scenarios for 2012-2013 Season

With the 2012-13 NBA season swiftly approaching, it’s time to take a look at the outlook for the Los Angeles Lakers.

Playing best-case, worst-case scenario with the Lakers is fun, but we’ve got our lead writer Ethan Sherwood Strauss to settle the debate and decide where they will actually rank for the year. 

There is no question that the Lakers made some interesting moves in the offseason, but will the changes pay off and result in a better season, or will they fail miserably and leave fans disappointed?

It should be fun to watch a full 82-game season this time around and see what the new faces in their new places around the league can do, but we’re talking about the Lakers, and we know that’s what you want to know about as well.

Will it be another year of disappointment, or will it be a season where all of the odds are exceeded?

No lockout talk, no revenue numbers, and most importantly—a full season of basketball.

Who’s going to be the biggest surprise of the Lakers? Will someone fail to live up to the offseason hype?

Please leave a comment below and let us know what you think about the 2012-13 version of the Los Angeles Lakers.
