After the first 24 minutes of the NBA season, the Lakers seem to have their gears turning in sync but it is evident that they need to fine tune what will no doubt be a well oiled machine after a few weeks.
Having Pau Gasol feed Dwight from the high post along with beautiful bounce passes on the pick and roll from Steve Nash is a dream come true for the man child known as “superman”.
This is without even mentioning the Black Mamba who has 10 points on 5 for 6 shooting. His foot does not appear to be bothering him as he is willing to attack the paint on cuts and slashes.
The efficiency on the offensive end is already there as the Lakers are shooting about 56% from the field (19-34)and 40% from the three (2-5). Although they are down at the moment 48-46 to a Nowitzki-less Mavericks, expect them to come out after halftime and steam roll the Mavs as I predict a 102-93 win for the season opener.
