The summer of 2013 for the Lakers will always be defined by what they lost, not what they gained. Despite making a couple of nice, affordable signings, the loss of All-Star Dwight Howard should and will be the storyline of the off-season. Nevertheless, the Lakers bounced back fairly well, bringing in young and athletic perimeter players while filling holes they had in the post, all while maintaining cap space for next summer.


With the off-season virtually over and the Lakers having just one roster spot open, we here at Lake Show Life decided to take a look at the off-season as a whole for the Lakers, breaking down our grades for them, their best and worse moves, and any other possible moves in the little time remaining.

    Got to agree with Colin B-, IMO. If FO knew that DH wasn’t returning they could’ve acquired better players during the early start of 2013 FA. NY is ok but needs to improve defensively as well as Farmar and W Johnson.

    Following up on EH, I observe a hungry player that wants to prove his worth in the league as he’s willing to do the dirty work to contribute. Just the type of player (hard work) that the team needs today and in the long term.
