I never said "too easy". I said Lakers fans want things to be easy for them. When things seem to get tough, fans act like the sky is falling. Hell last year when the Lakers lost 9 of 12 heading into the playoffs, there were plenty of members saying the Lakers had no chance to win the title again.
Fans can [expletive] and moan all they want about not having HCA, but it's wasted energy, Our team didn't get the job done, although we made a helluva run at the #1 seed after the all-star break and we got complacent with the #2 seed. It's not good that they got complacent but it is what it is.
It is what it is, they made it hard on themselves (the players) and they seem to always do. Lose this game and lose the next one while we're at it (since these games don't matter and we want a challenge). We will be sitting on the 4th seed in the west. Want a challenge? Try winning the first series, (potentially) the second without HCA, the third series without HCA, AND the Finals without HCA. I as a "Laker fan" sure as hell do want the easy way lol...
