Lakers Brought Down To Earth

This a quick one: When I heard all of the hype about the Lakers potentially breaking the Chicago Bulls' single season record of 72-10, I was quite confused as to what everyone was seeing that made them think (i) such a feat could ever be accomplished again and (ii) that the band of makeshift players supporting Kobe Bryant would be sufficient to do it against the likes of the 2009-2010 version of the Nuggets, Rockets, Spurs, Warriors, Clippers, Celtics, Cavaliers, Hornets, Magics, Suns ... should I continue... Then I chuckled to myself and said we'll just have to wait and see. Sure enough, only 10 games into the season, the holes that I thought existed with this 2009-2010 version of the Lakers, against a revamped and re-amped Western Conference, have been exposed. So much for 72-10, at this rate they're look at a 58 win season tops!

The Lakers Look Indomitable!

Seems that every piece of the puzzle has fallen back into place for them all over again.  Anyone thing that they can lose the West?  State why.
