Your Morning Dump… Lakers bloggers don’t realize their team is old

Lakers

Every morning, we compile the links of the day and dump them here… highlighting the big storyline. Because there's nothing quite as satisfying as a good morning dump.

In the video above, Lakers bloggers Brian and Andy Kamenetzky, along with radio guy Dave Miller, chat about the favorites in the Eastern Conference in 2012, and how the Lakers match-up against them.

Guess what? They completely dismiss the Celtics as an old team with no chance. 

I'm not denying the fact the Celtics are an aging team. But how is it an old team like the Celtics is easily dismissed, while an older team like the Lakers is considered a contender?

According to Hoopism, the Lakers are the second oldest team in the NBA. Whether you measure them by average players age or by a formula that factors minutes played, the Lakers are older than the Celtics.

And haven't we learned anything from the reigning champion Dallas Mavericks, a team which happens to be the oldest in the league?

    who gives a fuck abou.t the lakers lets start talking celtics offseason moves. Like potential free agents the celtics could sign along with possible trades we could try an accomplish if there is a season. One move i want to happen desperately is the celtics trying to trade rajon rondo and jeff green along with our 2 first round picks for dwight howard.This would instantly make us a contender with delonte starting ray ray 2 the truth 3 KG 4 and Dwight howard as the 5. the orlando magic would what the nba beleives is two great young pieces of a franchise along with two first round picks,( as an addition we could maybe throw jermaine oneal in there and get a jj reddick with dwight). if the celtic front office could pull this off it would be even better for the team then when they traded for the big 3.
