...and now a loss to the THREE win wonders, Cleveland Cavs. What an absolute joke this team is. The Clippers have always been my 2nd favorite team and I think they have just about become my new favorite team. At least they have some heart. This Laker team is just pathetic from top to bottom.

The worst part about everything we are going to have a horrible record with no draft picks and we have to wait another season to pretty much blow up the roster and go into full rebuild mode... but have no picks and if Nash doesn't turn this team around who ever we gave our draft picks will have a lottery pick

The Lakers are going to spend more money firing coaches than hiring Phil Jackson straight ahead :laughing:

The Lakers are the worst team in the league. Individually, they have all the talent in the world. As far as them being a team, there is no trace of that. Can Phil really fix this? Maybe, but I doubt they'll get to a championship level.

According to some people yes. We just are not playing defense, turnovers aren't helping either.

No, they aren't this bad. Take away the top two point guards of any team and their 3rd best remaining starter and any team will struggle to stay at .500.

It's still possible that they turn things around and get into the playoffs (assuming some return to normal health), but it might be too big a hole to climb out of to make any significant playoff run. Nash could make things so easy on offense that they are more into the game and have more energy to defend, but I'm not optimistic about the defense.

The Lakers management/ownership brought this on themselves when they went with D'Antoni. Sure, maybe before they fired Brown they thought Phil wouldn't coach again and that D'Antoni was the best option. But in the end they hired a guy a) whose offense is totally dependent on a point guard when their top two point guards were injured and b) who has never successfully coached a defense squad without bringing in a defensive coordinator. Phil's teams may never have been dominant defensively, but at least they weren't terrible.

i'm with kobe. yes we are playing bad, but it's not like kobe is playing poorly. kobe is playing well so just by history alone a team with dwight and kobe should be .500 at worst.

yet here we are. weird

One less bandwagon to worry about.
