Jerry West still believes. The former Laker and Lakers general manager -- part of a few mega teams himself that disappointed by not winning a championship before finally breaking through in the early 1970s -- believes the Lakers can pull themselves together and make a run for the Playoffs. a feat that is getting more and more difficult by the day as the games run out and the chemistry seems to fizzle. Before it was announced that Pau Gasol would miss at least six weeks with a torn plantar fascia, West said he believed the Lakers would be able to make up the 4.5 games they need to catch the eighth seed in the West.

No Gasol, no problem? Not so fast
