Besides Kobe, this group of guys seem very complimentary and do not possess big egos. Kobe's is big enough for the whole team.

With that said, Pau Gasol is probably the best Number 2 to a Number 1 in the history of the game. He is so smart, so talented, yet so humble and cohesive that as long and he and Kobe stay healthy, stay together, and receive an admirable support base (rest of the current purple and gold klan), I do not see why it cannot go on again and again!

Still think the Lakers need to get a little tougher. They are very similar to UCLA. Coach Howland seems to gravitate towards the more slender, athletic individuals. This has proven to be problematic when both the Lakers and Bruins come up against stronger and equally athletic adversaries!

Sorry, you guys lost me on the Chargers! I want the Chargers to lose EVERY game...

Here is my philosophy on that. The worse the Chargers do, the less likely the city of San Diego will be committed to contributing tax dollars for a new stadium, the Chargers will contact Ed Roski, he will break ground in Industry, the Chargers will relocate to Industry into the new Los Angeles Stadium, and I can then again buy season tickets to a pro football franchise for the first time since 1994 (Raiders/Coliseum).

The Los Angeles Chargers!!! Then I will also say "yes, of course"!

I really do want a LA team, I wouldnt mind the chargers, I would convert, I am just tired of not being able to watch my favorite team simply because they are not a LA team, also tired of rooting for another cities team, ready for my own.

I hear ya' brother! It's been a looong time since I went to a Raider game at the Coliseum or a Ram game in Anaheim. I think both games were their final homestand and they both lost!

I'll take anybody!!!!!!!!

Tired of all the politics by the greedy NFL wanting our fair-weathered fans (which we are) to have no home team so they can all sit on their a*s*s and watch the boob tube from the convenience of their home.

It translates to.........$

true. but even if 70% of LA fans are fair-weather, that still leaves MILLIONS who are willing to be true fans!
