The Lakers are 10-1.
We're one back in the loss column.
The Lakers are the best offensive team in the league, and the best defensive team in the league, too (at least numbers-wise). They are clearly out to make a statement.
But to whom?
How often does Doc bring up the Lakers?
How often do the players discuss the Lakers?
We know they're all keepin' an eye on them.
Vice versa, I suspect, as well.
