We are now in the beginning of january and faced major losses to small market such as big market teams. We dont show any conststency and our renewed championship calibar squad is not getting it going. It is just not working. It doesnt matter how often we hit 3 point shots, how many slams and defensive stops we are hitting..at the end of the day we see us right now with 15-17 on the 11th seed in the western conference.

Teams like Nuggets, Wolves ,BLAZERS(!), are in front of us! We, a dynasty with alot of history ,passion,dignity and hall of famer. WE, with a squad formed by future hall of famers and a "great Offensive Coach ? " ...

My question is, beside all the crying, screaming, discussions etc... when [expletive] gets real at the end of the season before the post season and we still find us struggeling at the end of the playoff spots and imagine WE FAIL:

Then what will happen with this Lakers team ?

Will we be splitten up? Will Dwight eventually prefers Dallas,ATL over the Lakers? After just 1 year of fail and disappointment ?

Will Gasol be traded for trash and garbage, because of his large contract and the fact that he is a walking wrack ?

Will the bench be ONCE AGAIN retraded for new players ?

Will Mike DAntoni be finished as a coach in the NBA ?

Will Kobe head into his last season with "just" 5 rings, still disappointed not getting any 6th ring after hall what he did this year in 2012-13 ?

What do you think guys ?

Portland and Denver won't fall, only getting better. Houston has to fall or we miss the playoffs

The team is getting broken up regardless. The NBA is about small-ball now. Having two 7 footers isn't an advantage, especially when one 7 footer always bricks free throws and the other one only stays awake when he plays for the Spain National Team

Missing the playoffs is certainly a possibility - especially if we lose these next 4 games and our closest competition (Denver, Portland, Houston and Minnesota) gets even more wins. At this point we need other teams to lose as much as we need to win.

IF we miss the playoffs, i think they'll have to consider all options. Using the amnesty on Kobe might even be on the table...

It'll be the biggest bust of a season in NBA history if we miss the playoffs. That's all I know

I wouldn't mind losing Dwight. Looking at the bright side, that's $20m off from the CAP.
Of course, I'd prefer if he ask for a trade NOW, because multiple draft picks and expiring contracts are always good

D'Antoni isn't going anywhere this season. Lakers are already paying Brown 11m to stay at home, adding a 3rd coach isn't gonna help them financially

split up...



the correct phrase is " Would the team be split up"



the lakers need to either trade dwight or pau. one or the other.

The twin towers concept doesn't work anymore.

Still can't believe people want Dwight traded already XD As for OP's questions:

-Nobody but D12 himself knows where he'll be next season.
-It's possible given his play this year
-Uhh I guess?
-He's got 4 years in his contract yes? The jury's still out on Pringles. People are just giving him [expletive] cause "Y U NO GET PHIL JIM BUSSS!?
-Possibly, but I think he'll win one more.

What's broken up mean? I think Howard is staying here regardless... He ain't taking a dump on one of the greatest franchises of all time. When was the last time a star player actually LEFT the LA Lakers?? Shaq doesn't count he was traded and was at the tail end of his prime years.
If we miss the playoffs? Expect everything and everyone to get dumped exept Nash, Kobe and Dwight Howard

Nash because you don't trade free agents that went out of their way to come to you

Kobe because well Kobe will be a Laker until he leaves the NBA on his terms. Lakers are never forcing him out of the door and its absurd and absolutely ridiculous that a fan earlier suggested he would be amnestied.

And finally Howard because believe it or not his our star for the next decade or so. His going to be face of the franchise...

The rest? Minced meat and free food
Laker fan for life.
