Yes, for some people. In fact, I know several who are counting on the Magic as next season's champs. If they can keep their line-up healthy, they have a bigger chance to proceed to the Finals and maybe even become the champs.
In addition, they have Vince Carter to help them out. Although they have lost several great players, such as Courtney Lee and Rafer Alston, in return they have Vince Carter too give 'em a boost.
I also think this will be a start of a new rivalry for the Lakers... that is if the Lakers can make it themselves and play the Magic in the Finals.
Lakers/Magic rivalry - what do you think?
BQ: Sell. Probably not this upcoming season. I don't know, maybe in a few years to come, but I just don't see him in 'top 3' next season. I wouldn't be surprised if he did though.
BQ2: Buy. It's possible. Considering Pau as not a softy as he was called before.
BQ3: Buy. It just got over 10 stars.
