Los Angeles Lakers

Many questions swirl around future Hall of Famer Kobe Bryant and the Los Angeles Lakers. For starters, how durable will Bryant be next season?

While answers for the questions are bound to be answered, at least the Lakers can look to add youth via their first-round pick in the 2014 NBA Draft.
