The Cavs are rolling impressively.

What happened to the Lakers??

These Lakers simply have no heart at all... looking down to their competition was.. uh, words haven't been discovered yet that could express the disgust how it might have felt.

If Cleveland wins 65+ games, and no one else does, I think history shows it's over for everyone. Plus being 30+-1 on their homecourt and the Lakers are stopping playing to catch up.. my goodness.

You could hate me for this.. But don't be surprised if this year still wasn't yet the Lakers' time and never will until LeBron/Wade's era is done... it's now or never.. honestly

Cavs CAN win it all. But they're NOT GOING TO win it all.

too soon to say. that being said the cavs are playing very well and what gets me is that after a cavs post win interview each player seems very very focused especially their team captain. We've lost 2 road games on this stretch and after every laker loss our players and our captian doesn't let up on what needs to be done. We haven't played well since we lost rad and I'm ot trying to say he was the glue to our team but somewhere along the way something happened. We will definitely not win a championship unless Kobe can figure his team out AND work on his shot. I would hate to see the same outcome like last season. The Lakers are playing very careless basketball.

Agreed that the playoffs are a different animal. Have the Cavs gutted out a tough series against a top team... ever? They'll have to do it at least twice. Yeah, of course they CAN win, but I won't be the least bit surprised to see the Celts in the finals again.

The Cavs are scary good. As I said in another topic, if we lose homecourt and don't have a healthy Bynum (a 100% Bynum), we'll lose to Cleveland in the Finals, sad to say it.

We need one or the other; home court, or a healthy Bynum. Cleveland's defense is too good. I'm not even worried about LeBron as much as I am their team defense and their shooters.

How? Just two seasons ago the Mavs were knocked out of the first round. 67 wins couldn't cut it for them in the playoffs. The slate is wiped clean come playoff time. It doesn't matter if you've won 60+ games or barely slipped in with a .500 record. That record will give Cavs the HC through to the Finals, but anything is possible, nothing is set in stone yet.

Either I'm too positive or everyone's too negative cause I'm not worried one bit. Losses like the last 2, although sad and embarrassing, don't bother me much. I still believe we have the best team, we're just struggling as a whole. When we are on, we are the best team in the league. People shouldn't jump to conclusions so quick and realize that these guys are working their asses off to win an NBA Championship. So, by saying that this team doesn't play with enough heart or they don't try hard enough is ignorance.

But then again, I could just be too positive.

its the end of the season, they are a little tired. put it this way, when the playoffs start, thats when we get 90% kobe.

think hes going to let this team, with this much talent fail? i dont think so. so dont worry, or at least try not to worry about it.

broken is the promise, betrayal

I'll Be Honest,
This Season is Not For Lakers.
Look Bynum is Out,Kobe Is Slumping,
Bench Mob Is Slumping.
Cav's Are Very Lucky This Season
No Problem At All

^ I wouldn't go that far.. There's nothing wrong with addressing poor or weak areas. If anything it's apositive if you're able to make changes to them and be successful. What worries me is the Lakers we saw in the first half of the season were scary. Granted we had Bynum but even still.. This team playing now looks like a completely different team. All's not said and done and I'll pull for my team even in the worst of situations but unless they can really really focus and play with that "last game, all's on the table" mentality and intensity, I just don't see them doing well in the playoffs.

I don't see the Lakers (especially the guards) attacking willingly enough to draw fouls and get fts.

Kobe too has been settling for jump shots. Who else would attack besides him???

That doesn't bode well as well for this team. They should learn to get into the rim

I think people need to just relax. The team is obviously fatigued right now. But honestly, i'm not worried about losing at this point. Im worried about just playing well and fixing things offensively and defensively before the playoffs start. We are going to get Bynum back next week most likely so that will give a boost to the team.

April starts tmrw. So im going to make this statement.

The Lakers (unless Phil decides to rest his players), will go 8-0 or 7-1 to end the season and go into the playoffs full steam ahead.

Cavs will lose 2 games. No worries.

If it were Lakers and Cavs in the finals and Lakers don't steal one of the first games in Cleveland - then it's a wrap.


I'm still optimistic once we get big Bynum back we won't have these lapses during games.

We don't even know if the Cavs are coming out of the East with beasts like Boston and Orlando.

When we get Bynum back, we're going all the way.
