We are happy to return to our in season format in which we watch 4 teams each week and provide analysis. How do the new look Lakers lead by Lebron James grade out? We like a lot of what we see from their young players but they’ve not been able to get settled on the defensive end yet. The Spurs look great on defense. But all of the concern we’ve had about their roster being constructed to be successful on the defensive end have proven to be legitimate thus far. The Blazers made some...
