Can someone (I'm looking at you Alex) tell me how the Lakers are able to afford all of these players? Please tell me that the the price they are paying to have this assemblage of talent is at least going to cripple them financially. I thought the whole point of the new CBA was to make the prospect of taking on this many high salary players so untenable that no one would be stupid enough to do it.
On a side note, how can the Nuggets do this? Why are you helping the Lakers dominate your conference for the next three years? Why do people keep helping the Lakers get any player they want?
