Five teams that reached the 2013 NBA playoffs have started the new season with less-than-stellar results -- and in the Knicks' case, a serious dose of bad luck thanks to Tyson Chandler's leg fracture. It's still early, but Denver and Memphis seem to have taken a step backward from last season. The Bulls are still getting used to playing with Derrick Rose, who's not yet back at MVP strength. And questions remain about what the Lakers will look like when Kobe Bryant returns. Our 5-on-5 panel has measured the panic meter for all five franchises. Now it's your turn. Vote below!

Good enough?

The Lakers are 3-3 but have looked overmatched at times -- and Steve Nash is still hobbled. Is there enough depth to surround Kobe for a playoff push?
