YOOURRR Los Angeles LakersThe Lakers are 0-2. This is a major shock to those in basketball who're history and common sense impaired.
National Basketball Association "Superteams", or teams with stars who they acquired from some other team during the offseason almost always get off to a slow start to the regular season. This dates back to when the Lakers traded for Wilt Chamberlain. The only exception I can think of is the 2007-2008 Celtics, who not coincidentally were probably the least preseason-hyped Superteam ever.
And every time this happens, fans are outraged, and the media rushes delightedly to file "What's Wrong With...." stories. It's like no one knows, and no one will learn no matter how many times its proven, that small unit cohesion, as its called in the military, is an important element of the sport.
