If there has been one asterisk affixed to the back of the Lakers ' blazing 14-1 start, it's that just four of those games have come away from the comforts of Staples Center.
That's what passes for angst in what's heretofore been one of the breeziest starts in Lakers history.
But like most issues that have come up for what used to be one of the NBA's most dramatically bent teams, this one should come to a quick resolution, or solution, as the Lakers leave town for a three-game road trip with stops in Indiana (tonight), Philadelphia on Wednesday and Washington on Friday.

It seems only the LA Times is over the top in bleeding purple.
The other local newspapers are more wait-and-see.
Still, how worried can the Laker faithful be over the likes of Indiana, Philadelphia, and Washington?
