It's been 10 years, but the Lakers are finally returning to the Western Conference Finals, having dispatched the Houston Rockets four games to one in Round 2 of the NBA Playoffs.
Andy and Brian break it down. How much of L.A.'s dominance of that series the Lakers? How much different would Denver or the Clippers be?
Other big topics of conversation include:
The lineup. After making a switch in the Rockets series, does Frank Vogel go back to starting JaVale McGee over Markieff Morris?
Depth, as in the Lakers showed some, with reserves from Morris to Alex Caruo to JaVale McGee playing well.
Is something truly off about the Clippers?
