The Lakers lost a tight one to the Memphis Grizzles last night, 89-86. While players like Jodie Meeks, who had 25, and Nick Young, who had 19, stepped up the Lakers were still unable to pull out the W. At 4-7 so far in the the year the Lakers are currently 4th place in their division, only ahead of the slugging Kings. As this will likely be down season for the Lakers, the upcoming draft promises at least 10 franchise changing players coming out of college, possibly even 15. Should the Lakers land one of those top 10 draft spots, they will have another young talent to develop for the future. Perfect timing if I do say so myself, and not to mention with big names like Carmelo Anthony and Lebron James testing free agency this summer, The lakers are liable to get at least one big name.
