With the loss to the San Antonio Spurs last night, the Los Angeles Lakers find themselves in an 0-3 hole which they are unlikely to climb out of.

Making the 7th seed in the playoffs at the start of this season would have sounded like a failure of a season, however now that we're at the end of the season 7th seed seems more like a blessing.

Dwight Howard has a new commercial out by Adidas and its catchphrase is: All in for L.A. Does this mean Dwight wants to stay with the Lakers?
