The Clippers have always been your second favorite team? For two years, or...? Because most of their time, before last year, they have been one of the worst franchises in the NBA.

In 2010-11, they went 32-50. Did you ditch the Clippers then, and then start liking them again the following season? How does that work?


Probably cause they are winning lol

Until CP3 leaves next season.

I don't care if the Lakers lose the rest of their games this season, I will NEVER consider switching to the CLIPPERS....to me, they will always be "low rent".


Call me a snob...I don't care.


As for what's wrong with the team:

The offense needs a PG.
D'Antoni's system thrives with ball movement.

Kobe's doing his Melo-in-NY impression.


As far as the defense, it's a problem...no excuses. They've got to put their "big boy pants on" and put some effort in on that end.

I don't know why the clippers don't move to Seattle. With the team they have they'd be the talk of the town

Greg Anthony said it best late last night. The Lakers have alot of individual talent, but right now they're a bad basketball team.

I would have given anything for Kwame to put up 18 PPG and 12 RPG on 58% FG.

Nope, been a Clippers fan for a long time. Chargers and Angels too, even thru the bad stretches. Wanna know what the difference is? All of those teams had inferior talent but they still played hard, The Lakers have 2 of the top 5 players in the league but still suck and play with zero heart, intensity or urgency. So whats their excuse? Kinda hard to root for a team with talent looking like they dont give 2 [expletive]

Kobe is putting up 29 a night on his highest FG% ever, at 34 years old, leading the league in scoring (something only Mike has done).

Dwight is matching his career averages of 18 PPG and 12 RPG, on 58% FG, despite not being 100%.

Everyone else on this roster is doing exactly what we thought they would do, in their roles. If you thought otherwise, your expectations were far, far too high...and if you are pissed off at Kobe and Howard for not having much energy to defend at the end of games, you aren't paying attention to how much basketball they are playing + their increased roles in an offense that is asking them to run (something neither of them have done in the primes of their careers).

Whatever you believe, I guess.

the only player who defies that statement is Jamison. we all thought hed shoot better on most nights and in effect score more.. (hes had 2 really good games thatve blown up his stats) he's really underperformed - its ok not to live up to "bench savior",but, he hasnt even been a "scorer" on most nights

Kobe and Randle led Lakers lead the team to a 32-50 record. the Lakers select Myles Turner with the 5th pick.

D'antoni seems as frustrated as you are about Jamison missing every wide open look lately

lol, Dantoni definetely said "wide open" at the end there. Jamison just isnt doing enough good on O to not get benched for Jordan Hill. Us giving up Offensive boards like we do when Jamisons in the game,probly wouldnt even be acceptable if he was scoring on the other end,,,,but with him not even scoring,,,,,,,u know,no reason to play him.. can we trade him? please, for a position of need, he'll probly be benched like Hill was when pau gets back,,,what a waste of a signing,,,i had so much hope in him. lets trade him

He was basically screaming "And the Door's WIDE OPEN!!" Talking about the advantages we should be taking cause the door was open for us to take initiative and our guy(Jamison ins this case) couldn't do anything when the game is there for the taking.

Agreed really. Jamison really needs to find himself again. He was doing GREAT so why the heck did he stop? MUST be frustrating.

hes played well in like 3 games this year.. i hope we're heartless and trade this guy,who took less money to win a ring,,,,if ur not gunna help win it,then,bye,right? i think he's realllly hurting us - nothing on offense, giving up offensive rebounds. jordan hill is god to this guy,even in a system built for him(jamison). please mitch, sign delonte, trade jamison for a 3,,, so our 2nd unit can have a couple wing threats and better D

Let's see who stepped up and who didn't


Kobe 31
Howard 20
MWP 23 at near 50% shooting
Ebanks 15 ...
Meeks 12 but 3 for 11 but the effort was there

And who was crap...

Jamison 3
Duhon 3


just.... sigh...

Well Delonte coming soon anyway so we don't have to worry about Duhon. But Jamison just... how can one fall off so terribly after back to back 30 point games.,
