The burning question before March 15 involves whether the Lakers will make a trade. Will Pau Gasol and Andrew Bynum still remain on the team? Can the Lakers upgrade at point guard? Or will executive Jim Buss make the roster even worse?
But those aren't the only things worrying Laker fans. The purple & gold just lost two consecutive games to the lowly Detroit Pistons and Washington Wizards. Frustration has mounted over Mike Brown's offense. Kobe Bryant's approach in switching his mask and increasing fatigue have correlated to a shooting dropoff.
