Indeed, many of us spent the summer comparing these Lakers to an All-Star team because, ya know, the roster was and is well-populated with All-Star types like Kobe Bryant, Steve Nash, Dwight Howard, and Pau Gasol. Those were flattering comparisons, perhaps because we haven't been paying close enough attention the actual All-Star Games.
