Divvied up into two shorter sections.  Easier for our listeners to digest.  Double the clicks for the K Brothers.  Winner-theme Everybody gets a plate of "winner winner" chicken dinner on us!*

Part I
  • Brian and I explain how Ron Artest can add versatility to the Lakers on both sides of the ball and enhance the Lakers' already dominant life in the paint.  Terrific as Trevor Ariza played last season, he's not much of a threat in the paint outside of a dunk or a putback.  But as we saw on Ring Night, Kobe Bryant, Andrew Bynum, Pau Gasol and Lamar Odom now have another Brother-In-"Post up Opponents To Death"-Arms.
  • It would obviously be nice for the Lakers to capitalize on a home-heavy early schedule consisting of largely quite winnable games.  But is it crucial?  We both say no, save one Northwest based caveat. 
  • Is a 73-win season attainable?  On paper and pure talent... maybe.  In reality and "bigger picture perspective"... not likely.
Part II

* - Chicken dinners will be high on imagination, low on actual chicken.
