Dennis Rodman Says Lakers Have ‘No Chance’ This Season

GTY_dennis_rodman_jt_130909_16x9_992The Los Angeles Lakers are not on many people’s radars this season, and no one really has them making a deep run in the playoffs. With Dwight Howard now in Houston and an aging group of stars, the Lakers are not a popular bet to dethrone the Miami Heat.

The flamboyant and outspoken Dennis Rodman chimed in on the Lakers, and he told local reporters in Tokyo that Los Angeles has no chance in winning banner number 17 this season.

“We know that the Miami Heat, that’s the best team,” he said. “The Lakers, no chance.”

The Heat are heavy favorites to win it all and become the first team to three-peat since the Lakers did in the early 2000s. However, the Lakers are not shaken or saddened by the fact that they are being overlooked this upcoming season. Kobe Bryant is more determined than ever to prove his naysayers wrong, and the team as a whole is focused on competing in the Western Conference.

The Lakers may not have the best team on paper, but they have the heart and dedication to make some noise.
