Did Lakers Overachieve this Year?

In the next 48 hours, there will be many columns written about the future of the Lakers.
Stories about how they need to blow up the team, how they are too old; columns about Mike Brown’s job status, Kobe Bryant’s shot selection, and whether Pau Gasol and/or Andrew Bynum — who went a combined 2-for-11 and scored seven points in the second half of the elimination game Monday against the Thunder — are any longer the answer. Some will call for Jim Buss’ head, while others will call for Phil Jackson’s return.
Every column will be based on fact. Yet not one will come to this logical conclusion.
Truth: The Lakers overachieved this season. They did better than any of us should have expected, better than they did last year. Think about it: In the 2011 conference semifinals against Dallas, they were swept. This year, they went out in five games. See, better.
