As a laker fan I've been holding my breath saying, "oh pleae oh please" for a couple of days now. Still, just because we might have 4 all stars doesn't mean we'll play as a team. LA typically has the Kobe vs Shaq fued, add in Payton and Malone and it may be a tragic crash and burn a la Portland several years ago.
Marinersfan, I'll assume you were kidding about the injury, cause that's some fucked up shit to wish on someone. I felt bad when Webber went down, I would have liked to watch you guys a full strength.
As far as Kidd goes, his best chance is in New Jersey. It's a dogfight out west, at least in the East he can get into the finals. As any Kings fan will tell you, just getting to the finals is hard. Kidd should count his blessings of having an easy road in the East. He was close to beating San Antonio, closer anyway than he was against the Lakers.
