In my opinion, they are not the best in either the Western Conference or in the NBA. The Celtics, in my opinion, are the best team in the NBA. The Lakers are no doubt good, but they are not the best team.
In the Western Conference? Yes. But you can't really say who the best is until the NBA season is over and a team wins the NBA championship. But the Lakers are definitely in the running.
In my opinion, Lakers are my favorite team and are very good. I'm rooting for them to beat Denver and Orlando Magic to beat Cleavland so Lakers can kick Orlando's you know what. Go Lakers, but in the Beijing Olympics the American team was the best (redemption team) it had the best players.
The best team is the Lakers.
l.a. lakers are best
Hell no. The Lakers have Kobe, the best player in the nba.
the best in the world is los angeles lakers

The Lakers or the Celtics.
