The way the Lakers play from game to game, their attitude, their response to the coaching, the way they play defense and the completely inconsistent way they play the game right now, yes.
have you been watching Dallas, Denver and Minnesota play lately??? Dallas and Minne are in a worse place than we are in terms of how they are playing right now and both teams major stars are coming off of injury and either barely having playing time or came back too soon and is gonna take weeks to get back into form.
Here is why I jump on Greg anthony and why I'm challenging you.
You're entertaining that the Mavericks with an injured Dirk Nowitski 3 weeks from getting into game shape is going 38-13.
and hat Minesotta whose main point guard came back too quickly from injury and is gonna take a while longer to regain his timing is going 36-16 along with Denver...
and that it has a BIGGER chance of happening... than the Lakers going 35-17...
Just consider that...Dallas with an injured Nowitski a month away from returning to form has a better chance of going 38-13 than the Lakers do of going 35-17... And that without Rubio the Timberwolves have a bigger chance of going 36-16 than the Lakers do of going 35-17... that is what someone like Greg Anthony would be conceding...
Do you understand why I think that's silly and overly pessimistic? TO out and out try to say that Dallas going 38-13 in their current position AND OFF A SIX GAME LOSING STREAK has a more probable chance of happening that we can entertain it and that we should be more skeptical that the Lakers do of going 35-17..
Sorry but I'm more skeptical that Dallas would ever go 38-13 with Nowitski a month away from form and his team coming off a six game losing streak or that Minesotta who is struggling is gonna go 36-16.
if we went on five 6-1 streaks like the one we just had we'd have close to 50 wins.
