The 2015-2016 NBA season is nearly here and for fans of the Los Angeles Lakers that means that the slate is finally wiped clean. Last season’s frustrating slide into the uncharted waters of futility is behind us, and it’s time to look forward to the future. The Lakers had training camp in Hawaii (just like old times!), preseason games are being played, and optimism has replaced despair.

It’s true that the Lakers still aren’t title contenders, and they once again struck out on their top free agent targets over the summer, but there is still a level of excitement amongst Lakers fans that has been absent in recent years. The purple and gold faithful are slowly recovering from the melancholy of last season, and are ready to support a team that looks almost nothing like the one that limped through 2014-15.

In other words, welcome back to Lakers Basketball.

With an eye towards sustaining the feel-good vibes radiating through the beleaguered fan base, let’s take a look at the top-five reasons for Lakers fans to be optimistic about the coming season.

  • Nice article.

    Big difference between Trevor Lanes and Jabari Davis upbeat articles in contrast to Ryan Wards usual hum drum toned articles.

    I wish all the previously negative fans and bandwagonners would not be allowed to participate NOW that the Lakers are turning things around.

    For almost three years we had to put up with haters and naysayers. Now these same people all of a sudden are asking for a high five. No it doesnt work that way.

  • EXCELLENT story. I love to see this kind of work here on LN. Keep it up.

  • Huertas is gonna be nice orchestrating our bench mob. That dude is an off the charts ball distributer. Lou and Swaggy are gonna get cleaner looks which will equal higher shooting percentages and not always take contested jumpers. Marcelo has zero problem adjusting to nba ball. It’s more like they’re gonna have to adjust to him. What a floor General this dude is. I didn’t know he was this good.

It’s more like they’re gonna have to adjust to him lol. Passes on the money with perfect timing and everything. Lakers gonna have a good bench this year. What a floor General this dude is. I didn’t know he was this good. Also, Nance Jr. deserves a little playing time when the real games start. He plays well when he’s in there.

  • If we trade Nick Young. Let it at least be for a good starting defensive SF. If not, rather keep Young.

  • Yeah, but last year they werent able to keep us in games. This year we have depth at many positions and youth.

  • might of have a good bench, but lakers never had the passers they have now. nash was hurt and lin struggle. so having Russell and marcelo will make the team look so much better.

  • well this was a very positive article. make you look forward to the season. i havent seen many preseason games but i hear nothing but good things about MArcelo and makes me look forward to the season. the bench should be fun to watch, you got a solid vet bench with guys like marcelo,bass and lou.

  • Don’t you think these words of yours are a little premature? They havent proven anything yet. I get it that it can be frustrating dealing with trolls but super loyal fans like you are perhaps just as frustrating to put up with, if not worse. You guys can’t take any criticism of the team whatsoever. The name callings, the labelling of anyone who say anything negative of the team are offensive and absolutely unacceptable. Don’t forget, fans make these professional big money teams possible. We have every right to criticize. Ignore us if you don’t like it but STOP these I AM TRUE FANS NOT YOU bullshit!

  • for me, once kobe retires, there’s no point in wanting the lakers win anymore. for some of us, the only reason why we became lakers fans is because of kobe. so to say that getting rid of kobe would be good for the franchise…? yes the lakers may get better as a team. but what’s the point? why should we care if the lakers are good or not?

  • There is nothing to be excited about. This franchise is dreadful right now. Until Kobe retires and we get a new Front Office that doesn’t botch lottery picks as badly as they did this year, this team is going nowhere fast. This FO is delusional if they think Clarkson and Russell are going to become Curry and Thompson.

  • Because this forum is for Lakers fans, not just Kobe fans? While Kobe was the reason I became a Laker fan, my fandom won’t end when he leaves. Yours shouldn’t either.

  • They NEED to package Russel, Kelley & Scare (Young as well if (necessary) & get themselves either a “real” point of a 1s round next year below say #5. Russell “won’t be a top 10 point, he is a bench guy at best…
