You read the headline right folks, the New Look Lakers were upset by the Dirk-less Dallas Mavericks. Many expected the Los Angeles Lakers to come out firing with Steve Nash, Dwight Howard and Pau Gasol in the back court, but it appears they have some work to do.
For those that watched the newly formed Miami Heat a few years back, they are not surprised with the early struggles of the Los Angeles Lakers. The Team has yet to really “gel” and understand the offense ran by Mike Brown.
On the other end, the Dallas Mavericks looked like they were in mid-season form with the superb passing and scoring.
Look for the Dallas Mavericks to suprise teams in the West this season.
Players to Watch this Season:
