And Michael Beasley destroyed MWP.... If he isn't going to lock somebody down or play defense he should be gone I think D'antoni should have left Jamison on the floor

MWP single handily lost us the game yesterday he had like 5 turnovers and missed like 8 shots in a row and Kobe kept passing him the ball


Well, I think Pau had alot to do with it as well. MWP's defense was pretty pathetic too. Beasley looked like all world yesterday. Suns must be thrilled, so now they can shop Beasley before the trade deadline and get some picks for him.

Lol, by Kobe's quotes, it almost seems as if he's coaching the team more than MDA himself.

So basically at home we have to go 13-3
And on the road we have to go 9-10 on the road at the least?

Hmm hopefully we win more than 9-10 on the road.

If we won 30 games by 1 point they'd still be 30 wins.

We never been a team the last 3 years that has consistently blown out teams on a nightly basis.

Very few teams do that. Top 3 teams in the league do that. We aren't there yet.

We actually are looking like Miami looked to start the season, do well early, defense or lack of rebounding let's teams back in it, but when they "show up" they start winning handily.

Now that's where Miami was to start the season, if we are there NOW, I don't mind, because even if we're winning by the skin of our teeth, they are still wins. And learning how to win when Dwight isn't on the floor can be vital especially if he got knocked out of another game. We can at least say "we been here before" and keep our composure to win instead of collapsing.

Like Nash said "common experiences". Just win now. Don't care about how till we're entering the playoffs.

I dont disagree, but we couldn't sustain leads, i don't expect to do so every game but it shouldn't happen a lot too.


Last few games were frustrating because we could have had played comfortably and not wait till last couple of possessions to determine a winner ..


Im not picky, W is all that matters, but things like this should be avoided ..




EDIT : Besides, this inconsistency had lost us games from the beginning because we couldn't play a 48minutes basketball , and it could've cost us these last games ..

Honestly, if we had Dwight today we would've blown them out.. Bynum wouldn't get to the paint that often.

Mike D'Antoni is GARBAGE.

I hope and we probably will win these next three games and then lose to the Heat, especially if we don´t have Dwight back on that time. Lebron/Wade are gonna score 60 combined points in the paint.

So, based upon what we know today, what will the Western Conference look like in say 3 years.

For Sure Power Teams
OKC

Probably Near The Top
Clippers (assuming Paul re-signs, they are toast if he leaves)
Warriors

Have a Shot to be Near the Top
Lakers (big maybe, Dwight has to re-sign, need to attract another big time FA), otherwise in next category
Houston (maybe one superstar FA away now)
Pelicans (good core, good coach, have many holes though)

Rebuild Mode
Spurs
Blazers
Suns
Mavs


Decent But Not Elite
Denver
Jazz
Memphis
Minny

Just Stink
Queens

My point is that in 3 years the Western Conference, based upon what we know now, will be weaker than today. .500 teams, maybe even sub .500 teams could regularly make the POs.

Lakers miss their last 14 shots of the 3rd quarter.

Offense is not a problem, guys. Don't worry!

8-3 in the last 11, havent lost at home since the Miami game on Jan 17. I missed the game but when you're battling a playoff spot, missing key players & have some tired injured players you'll take any wins as they come. God I hope we beat the Clippers on Thursday I've been thoroughly disappointed with the effort both the times we've played them from everyone outside of Kobe

^And besides the Thunder, we have not played anyone decent at home. The Suns game last night was a pathetic W. There is zero chance that the team can play like that and beat anyone decent. I am not encouraged by the body language I saws last night. This team is just not hungry enough.

13-3 at home is not realisitic based upon what I saw last night. If the Clippers bring just their B game and the Lakers play like that, it will be a 20 point loss on Thursday.

Remember not too long ago when people were saying some Laker fans even & especially the media how this team was better without Kobe? More team ball, more shots for everyone, more success, lol.

What a beautiful system of offense we're running. So many flawless possessions. It really is a sight to behold.
