One of the questions: Can the Lakers win the title again with their current core?  Four of the five say sure, but former Times sportswriter J.A. Adande disagrees:

Fiction. Even if they can hold off the up-and-coming Thunder for a year or two, they won't be able to beat the best of the East. Sometimes not even four potential All-Stars is enough.

What do you think? Will the Lakers win with the core they have?
