The Los Angeles Lakers have all the tools they need to win a title. They have a great roster, a trusted leader, an experienced coach, and a culture that accepts nothing less than greatness.

Sometimes, though, it's the gameplan that really matters.

Even then, what sort of things can we expect from them, and will it be enough to beat out Brooklyn?
