Why the Lakers are the hottest team in the NBA

— When you hear the word “buzz,” most people assume you’re talking about basketball.
But for some reason, the word doesn’t seem to catch on with Lakers fans.
And it’s not just because the Lakers haven’t been as dominant as they’ve been in recent seasons.
It’s because of the fact that, when you hear “bust” used in a sports context, most people think of the NBA playoffs.
That’s because they are.
In the first round, the Lakers were able to knock off the Spurs in six games, and that was enough to earn them the No. 1 seed in the playoffs.
The Lakers then went on to beat the Cleveland Cavaliers in seven games, which gave them the fourth seed in that same round.
The Lakers are tied for the second seed, which means they’ll play against the defending champion San Antonio Spurs in the first-round.
For the Lakers, that would be a tough test, given their record of winning a lot of games.
If they lose that game, they would have to lose the next two games.
That would leave them one game out of the playoffs, and it would be tough to get past them in the next round.
And the Lakers know that.
When they’re talking to people about what it would take to get the Lakers to the postseason, the first thing they often mention is how they’re playing at a high level.
The first Lakers win was over the Cleveland Browns in the AFC championship game in February, and since then, they have won a franchise-record three straight.
And if the Lakers want to be in the top four of the standings, they need to win four of their next five games.
And that, in and of itself, is why they are so high up in the rankings.
When I talk to people who have followed the Lakers for a while, I always try to point them toward the fact they’re winning more than they’ve lost.
And there is some truth to that.
When you go back and look at the history of the Lakers franchise, there are a lot more wins than losses.
The franchise has won four NBA titles, three NBA Finals, two NBA Championships and six NBA Championships overall.
The reason that is is because the team has played a different style of basketball.
And that’s what people think is cool when they talk about the Lakers.
And to be honest, it’s a good thing.
Because as it stands right now, the team is averaging more than 105 wins per season.
And for that to continue to be the case, they will need to continue playing at the level they’ve played at over the past few years.
And as of right now that level is very different.
