On Friday, ESPN's "First Take" debated the Lakers' loss to the Heat. Los Angeles fell to Miami 99-90, but the Lakers held strong through four quarters -- at least until LeBron James took over in the final minutes.

Smith takes the opposite tack -- he appreciates the Lakers' effort, improvement down the stretch, and the fact that they seem like they're finally coming together as a championship-caliber team. What's your take?
