The Los Angeles Lakers are 13 games into the 2010-2011 season and there have been many storylines  in the young campaign.

The team started the season with an 8-0 record and is currently battling the San Antonio Spurs and the New Orleans Hornets for Western Conference supremacy.

The Lakers are 11-2 due to the MVP-type play of Pau Gasol and Kobe Bryant. The team’s two main-stars were expected to play great in the absence of Andrew Bynum, but many other reserves are also stepping up and having great seasons.

Shannon Brown and Lamar Odom have impressed the coaches and fans with their much improved play in the early season.

The Lakers are off to a great start and the players are working very well together.

Lets’ look at these Lakers and give each player a grade for their performance in the young 2010-2011 season.
