Key Subtractions: Ed Davis, Wayne Ellington, Jordan Hill

Games against Suns: (H) Mon, Nov. 16, (A) Sun, Jan. 3, (A) Fri, Mar. 18, (H) Wed, Mar. 23

Series Prediction: 3-1, PHX

Preview: The Lakers aren’t willing to go into full Sam Hinke mode, and truthfully I believe that Mitch Kupchak has the ability to bring the Lakers back into contention in the West (I mean he brought Pau Gasol to the Lakers for possibly the worst number 1 pick in NBA history and a murderer). But for the time being the Suns really shouldn’t worry too much about the Lakers.
