Los Angeles Lakers: Projecting Full Season Stats for Each Player

The Los Angeles Lakers have built a sterling reputation in the NBA by having a championship contender virtually every year. That’s set to change in 2013-14.

Dwight Howard left in free agency to join the Houston Rockets, Kobe Bryant is recuperating from a torn Achilles he suffered in April and the Lakers are now relying on a pu pu platter of free agents that includes Nick Young, Wesley Johnson, Xavier Henry and Jordan Farmar.

Needless to say, Mike D’Antoni will have to find contributions from every spot on the roster if the Lakers are going to make the playoffs in 2014. That’s especially evident with Bryant sidelined.

Can this collection of young players, aging veterans and NBA journeymen join together into a cohesive unit? Can they put up the stats necessary to win games?

We’ll have to wait and see.
