With fewer than three weeks until the start of the NBA’s 41st season, we’re previewing all 25 teams. Whatchu say? Twenty-five teams? Yup. We’re looking at every franchise in addition to shining a light on the new Eastern Conference expansion Charlotte Hornets and Western Conference expansion Miami Heat.

One of the more interesting aspects of these Lakers teams is that in the seasons in which the Lakers ended up winning the championship, very few mid-season trades were made (six players were shuffled in the 1979-80 championship season, in the remaining four championship seasons, only Frank Brickowski was moved).
