LA Lakers in the 2008-09 season

With the way that the Lakers have been playing in their first 12 games of the 2008-09 season, you may want to start saving up for Lakers Playoffs tickets as early as now. As of November 25, the Lakers are in first place in the Western Conference with a nearly impeccable record of 11-1. Some of the main contributors to the Lakers’ success include head coach Phil Jackson, superstar Kobe Bryant, and all-star Pau Gasol. One of the major changes from the 2007-08 season is that Andrew Bynum is back in the lineup after healing from an injury that kept him from playing for most of the 2007-08 season.

If the team can keep healthy and keep-up their intense defense, they may just have the best chances of winning the 2009 NBA Championship. In fact, based on the Lakers’ current lineup, the Lakers may have what it takes to win more than just one championship in the next five years. Get your tickets now to see if the Lakers can set the pace for the next few years by winning the 2008-09 NBA Championship title.
