Since the firing of Mike Brown the Lakers are 4-1, with the only loss coming against the San Antonio Spurs. Kobe is currently the leagues leading scorer, averaging 26.4/game and they are getting the contributions they were expecting from Pau Gasol and Dwight Howard.

It’s still another week or so before Steve Nash comes back, but Mike D’Antoni is expected to be on the sidelines Tuesday versus the Nets, so the Laker faithful will get to see how he runs the offense.  Until Nash comes back, expect to see a lot of Kobe Bean giving opposing defenses fits like he’s been doing all season and for the better part of the last 15 years.
