From the beginning of the season we have been told we are the favorites (and rightfully so), but i think i can safely say we are the worst 65 win team ever. Have we all believed the hype and even worse has the players believed the hype. We have heard this saying a lot this season, "Lakers won but they didn't even play their best basketball." I think i can safely said i haven't seen in one game this season lakers play their best ball, so what makes us so sure they are capable of doing so? Is it possible for this team to play a perfect game?
Lakers are a good team filled with talent but is it too much? We blow leads, don't play defense, take stupid shots at times mostly the bench, and as much as i love Kobe and everything hes done for us he is definitely settling for too many jump shots, play down to opponents level. Its kind of when i was younger and i would bring a bad report card and my parents would say "we know you can do better than this, but you never do" and i would reply "if i never do, then why do you expect me to?" If the Lakers never play their best, how do we know they even can?
I believe in this team, but i don't think this team is "godly" and is going to breeze threw every series like nothing. I will be posting a series of threads comparing the pros and cons of each individual Laker player so we can see exactly how good each player is. Completely unbiased opinion on each player......
