If Kyle Korver becomes a free agent keep this in mind: Korver grew up in the L.A. area (Paramount) and was a big Lakers fan growing up. I imagine he'd want to finish his career here and chase a ring. He's also a former teammate of LeBron and the kind of player this team needs.

The Karl Malone-Gary Payton season gets looped in here, which makes no sense. That team made it to the NBA Finals. Again, injuries were a factor. Malone missed half the season and was knocked out of the Finals with the series 1-1. That team was hard to beat when Malone was right.

Expectations don't take into account injuries, which change everything. In 2012 Steve Nash fractured his left leg in his second game with the Lakers and was never the same and soon retired. Dwight Howard was coming off serious back surgery and was never the same and soon left.

Every Lakers championship team from Jerry and Wilt to Magic and Kareem to Kobe and Shaq have been led by a hall of fame tandem. LeBron and A.D. might be the best statistical pairing in NBA history and could be the next duo to lead the Lakers to a title.
