Can't compare other seasons to what is going on now as far as being able to string wins together. Schedules, players, team strength, etc., way too many factors to make that comparison.
I agree not one person wants to be a part of that, but looking at the rest of the year, I feel its too late, that fate looks just about inevitable. Like I said before (in another thread I think), barring some ridiculous turnaround from this team or an utter collapse from one of the teams above them.
I appreciate the optimism, but realistically this team has to do work I don't see them being able to achieve in order to get to where you think they can be.
This team, this schedule and all that doesn't matter. We've all seen this team is capable of losing to any team, despite the record. Yet, they don't seem able to beat any team, despite their record. I hope I'm wrong, but I don't see much positive happening with this team in the way of getting into the playoff picture. And if they do, D'Antoni may then stay (something the Lakers do not need) and they won't make it out of the first round whatsoever.
