Now that the season has ended for the Lakers, there's time to reflect on the past and look ahead to the future.
Most of the material over the coming months here on the Lakers Now blog will focus on what the Lakers can do in preparation for next season.
In the next few weeks we'll occasionally look back on what went right and what went wrong.
Additionally, reports from the Lakers' exit interviews are now available, including those for Dwight Howard, Kobe Bryant, Pau Gasol, Steve Nash, Metta World Peace, Mitch Kupchak, Earl Clark and Jodie Meeks.
Stay tuned for more to come, along with player and season evaluations.
