The Los Angeles Lakers are obviously one of the most successful franchises in the history of sport. Since their inception, when they were the Minneapolis Lakers, the organization has reach the pinnacle of basketball 16 times placing 16 championship banners that hang from the Staples Center in downtown Los Angeles. The common bond between those 16 championships is that each team used its talent in the right way, and had pieces that fit together perfectly. In 2012 the Lakers tried to buy their way to a 17th championship by adding NBA superstars Dwight Howard and Steve Nash to a roster that already included Kobe Bryant and Pau Gasol. It was a disaster. The pieces didn’t fit. Because of the way Kobe Bryant played, they weren’t able to use Nash in the right way to get the most out of his talent. The same for Pau who had to take a lesser role down low with Howard coming on board. On paper this team should have been a favorite to win it all; in reality they barely made the playoffs. The lesson? Know the best ways to use your talent.
