Will you patient lakers fan be worried? I know there are a lot of members on here who have a glass half full mentality and believe this team will turn around and become one of the dominant teams in the NBA. But if the Lakers have a below 500 record when November is done, is it time to maybe spill that glass a little bit? Maybe its too early even if we suck through November. Heck maybe its too early if we have a below .500 team by Christmas. SOme people on here probably would even wait until the All Star break. It is one thing to take time to get to know the offense and defense but if there is no improvement in any of those areas for the past several games already including the preseason game, maybe its time to worry? Key word is improvement and so far I have not seen any improvement. Unless we play against college teams like the Pistons every game, what will be the difference? I always wanted to be an optimus. Heck, I'll be Optimus Prime and lead the optimus bus around saying everything is ok and we will turn it around. But the more I watch the more I spilled my glass half full milk. Mike Brown aint helping me. Pau Gasol aint helping me. Metta world tregedy aint helping me. And that look that Kobe Bryant gave to Mike Brown says it all. Is it panic time if the Lakers under 500 end of November?

Are we playing to just make the playoff this season? Last I check Lakers don't play just to make playoffs. Last I check we are not the Milwaulke Bucs, Charlotte Bobcats or even the Hornets where we put up banners because we make playoffs. Championship or BUST!!

I consider myself in the patient group, and I'll be very concerned if we're not at .500 by the end of the month, especially with the upcoming schedule we have going for us.

If we are under .500 and Mike Brown is still here, I can't imagine the look Staples Center will have.


Remember this?

You think Metta World Piece going to go into the stands and start fighting if we end up being below 500?

I wondered how many sons and daughters of super rich founders of forbes 500 companies end up having another Steve Blake incident.

After this homestand we have 12 out of the next 18 on the road including 9 out of 13 in December, the team hasn't shown enough promise and progress for me to think they're eve gonna be .500 come December, Brown will be gone by Christmas

I dont think Mike Brown will be fired during the season even if the Lakers end up having the worst record in the league. For one, Jim Buss is too stubborn to admit he made a mistake. Another is Lakers are a lot more patient than fans and medias. Unless Kobe, Nash and Dwight storm into Mitch's office and demand Mike Brown to be fired, Lakers usually only do big moves during exit interviews at the end of the season. Lakers franchise are not the type of franchise that will fold under pressure just because fans and media wanted Mike Brown to be gone. I will be surprised if Brown is fired this season no matter how bad the Lakers are playing.

They're not paying hundreds of millions of dollars to have a below .500 record team. I'll bet my ass that something will happen if this type of play continues. Nobody wants to pay millions of dollars in taxes to get this type of trash in return.

I don't know where you get this Jim Buss is too stubborn thing from. The dude tried blowing up our team to get CP3 and then possibly Howard, but he got screwed there. Then he signed Nash and traded Bynum for Howard, which every Jim hater said he would never do.

And just like AirTupac said, you think the organization is going to spend over $100 million on a roster that is below .500 because of an ego? You are nuts, my friend.

Jim said he's happy with Mike Brown, but what do you want him to say? Mitch and Jim if we've learned anything are VERY good at not revealing their cards.

Some of you need to understand that even if Jim Buss is inclined to fire Mike Brown, he won't say it publicly. This is same thing with Bynum. You have to be able to read dude's poker face. Jerry taught'em well. When/If Mike goes, you'll see it on the headlines, not hear from the owner's mouth.

Jerry Buss is still the man who owns the team. He will not let this team have the worst record.. let alone .500

I consider myself in the patient group but I'm quickly losing patience. If they finish the month below 500 then it's time for change. It's inexcusable to have this much talent and not beat below average teams at home.

If they are under .500 in Dec, you can kiss the playoffs goodbye. This isnt the east where you can back in with 35 wins. Its going to take at least 50 wins to make the playoffs and that means you can only have about 27-30 loses. They already have 4 5 games into the season. They need to start getting it going and NOW.

I really don't care, take my statement any way you wish, still rooting for the team win or lose.

Its a process guys, some teams gel instantly and some don't.

No team couldn't gel like this ever. Look at the Mavs. They got new guys on the roster and Dirk wasn't even playing. They end up having a 4-1 record. Look at the Knicks. They lost Jeremy Lin and got 5 new players in the roster, they are 4 - 1. Look at the heats in 2010. They got new players, new coach, new super team, they never go 1- 5 and show imrpovement. Are you in Colorado and smoking something good? Pass me some of that weed cus you are so optomistic its stupid

Same for me. I'm patient as well but watching this team struggle like this is disheartening. Lol. It's one thing if this team wasn't any good and we expected them to be a bottom seed team like in 05-07 but this team has championship aspirations and so far they look terrible.
