I think the Lakers are on a wild ride to being mediocre. I know it's easy for me to say I hate the Lakers,but they are in a tough spot with the lockout coming.You say? Do they have large amounts of cash stashed under a mattress for Kobe? No but look at their salary status right now. If the NBA hits the hard cap of 45 million the Lakers have two guys under contract until the 2013-14 season that add up to 50 million. Kobe will get 30 million that year at age 50. No he will be 35 going on 36. The other player will be Pau Gasol,and he will make a cool 20 million. The Lakers have a ton of money tied into Kobe. 693 days
