Coming into the 2014-2015 season, expectations are much different than in years past for the Los Angeles Lakers.

There’s not much chatter of championship hopes, and making the playoffs seems like the most reasonable aspiration for this Lakers team at this point in time.

The Lakers were unable to lure a superstar to Los Angeles over the summer, and instead of spending big money on an above average player, decided to maneuver their finances to remain flexible for the summer of 2015 — essentially leaving the team in a state of rebuilding and many fans disillusioned.

However, after a 27-55 season in 2014 in which the Lakers missed the playoffs, there isn’t much room for the Lakers to go anywhere but up, right?

After all, Kobe Bryant is back following two serious injuries, and Steve Nash appears to be in much better health than he was coming into last season.
