    This. I see this causing a whole domino effect with the Lakers. AD winds up playing way more minutes as a C then he would want to and getting hurt. That causes Lebron to play more as a PF, while still being a point forward and causing him to break down. He's no spring chicken any more. And with them having to rely more on Rondo and Bradley, that's not a good thing.

    There is a problem with this though... it forces AD to play at center, where he is best, and likely forces LeBron to play more at the 4, where he is best.

    If Cousins was fully recovered he would help them and raise their ceiling. The Cousins I saw last year would only hurt the Lakers.

    Tough luck for Cousins... being out here in Sacramento I heard some stories of him being a world class *******... he also did a lot in the community... he’s a complex dude to understand. It must be reallllly frustrating and I feel for him.

    I don’t know that playing a certain position will cause injuries or additional fatigue. Their best lineup this year was always going to be LeBron at the 4 and AD at the 5... and now they will figure that out sooner.

    The depth is an issue.

    I figured he would only play about 65 games, so maybe 61 instead?
    Lebron 68 games tops.

    It’s cold, but I’d actually consider eating his salary and cutting him loose to add a roster spot for a minimum vet type of guy. Maybe Kenneth Faried. Either that, or hang on to him until the buyout season comes around and then cut him and add a guy to fill the roster spot.

    I hear ya. I think what I meant to say was that they're going to lean way too much on him to do everything.

    I'm interested to see what their starting lineup looks like, I just don't see them having a lot of shooting or spacing on offense.

    LeBron eats Dwight for breakfast. Causing farts.

    I could totally see Lebron getting the best out of Dwight. But yeah the shooting is shaky.
