Los Angeles Lakers: Kobe Bryant and the Lakers Need Andrew Bynum For Three-Peat

December 4th, 2010 by Josh Martin Leave a reply »
Much has been written about the woes of the Los Angeles Lakers in light of the team's four-game losing streak.

There's certainly reason for concern, considering that Kobe Bryant and company have not suffered this many losses in a row since Pau Gasol came to town.

That being said, it's still far too early to panic, what with a three and a half game lead in the Pacific Division and two season changes to go before the two-time defending champions need concern themselves with playoff positioning.

And, with starting center and all-around giant Andrew Bynum yet to play a single minute this season, the Lakers still are far from certain of what they'll have to work with in pursuit of a Three-Peat.

However, given the issues that have boiled to the surface in the cauldron of the regular season thus far, the Lakers look more and more as though they'll need a healthy and effective Bynum back in the middle if they are to send Phil Jackson off into the Montana sunset with his 12th ring (for his other big toe).
