The LA Lakers have been tipped to win the NBA Championship this year. One way or another it promises to be an exciting ride.
If you're a Laker fan, you've gotta be pinching yourself like I am, all the time.
Just from watching the first pre season game against the Golden State Warriors it is easy to tell there is a lot to be optimistic about.
Although the team did lose, watching Steve Nash in a Laker uniform alone must of made any Laker fan's night.
Twisting and turning, dishing assists and breaking ankles (Sorry Jarrett Jack) the Lakers have longed to see someone take charge and run the team so efficiently as Magic Johnson once did.
With 5 points and 3 Assists in only two quarters the world of basketball saw only a glimpse of what is to come from 'Nashty'.
29 other NBA teams must be running scared and for good reason.
