The Kobe Bryant era in Los Angeles is over. After a ton of pomp and circumstance to send the Mamba out, the Lakers are still where they always were -- but now they have an insane amount of cap room and . When it comes to NBA 2K16 (or 2K17) the Lakers are going to present themselves as a fantastic challenge in MyGM to rebuild from the ground up. There are some decent pieces present, with both DeAngelo Russell at the point and Julius Randle at Power-Forward. But the team itself is coming off of a historically, woefully bad season. Last in the league in scoring, a 17-65 record, a defense that wasn't the worst in the league but might as well have been -- there's a lot of just flat out building to do with the Lakers.
