With the 2015-16 Los Angeles Lakers season officially underway tomorrow, fans are cautiously optimistic about the new batch of players donning the purple and gold, and with good reason. After last season’s disastrous run, which presented an injury-ridden squad limping along to the worst record in franchise history, the 2015-2016 incarnation of Lakers Basketball promises to look considerably different.

Roughly half of the roster is gone, replaced mostly by younger counterparts or more accomplished veterans. Ed Davis’ departure for Portland stung, particularly with the reasonable contract that he signed ($20 million over three years), but otherwise most of the subtracted players didn’t have the appearance of being long-term fits (Jeremy Lin fans might feel otherwise, but they are a… passionate… group of people).

While there are a number of question marks on the new-look Lakers, there is also hope that better days lie ahead. Let’s take a look at the roster that hopes to transition the franchise to a new era of success.
