....or maybe how far the Clippers have climbed as well. I hate those mother[expletive]ers & their fanbase is nearly as fake as Brooklyn's but but give em some credit.

Today, the Lakers are 25-28. The Rockets are 28-25. Assuming that it takes a 42-40 record to get the last seed, we have to go 17-12 to get there. The Rockets have to go 14-15. The odds say we will lose to the Clips tonight. So we will have to play .610 ball the rest of the way just to make it to 42 wins. And we have already lost twice to the Rockets, so they own the tiebreaker.

My point is that we could make the POs, but the path there makes it improbable.

Are you saying its not true? Are you an OG fan of the Clippers? And if you are, then please explain the sharp increase in fan attendance and representation now as opposed to the pre-Chris Paul era.

No offense, but using "LOL" in a response that includes the word "illiteracy" is very ironic.

12 games ago we were 4.5 games out of the 8th seed.
We went 8-4.
Now were 3.5 games out of 8th seed.

There's 29 games to go.
At this pace we miss the 8th seed by 1/2 game.

Making up .83 games every twelve games we play means we done
[expletive]ing math.

Interesting, many literate people, like authors, use Acronyms such as "LOL" in everyday use....nice assumption though.

I am an OG fan, since the Anaheim days (I am only 24). To answer your question, it takes "SOME KIND OF SPARK"... something to get motivated and passionate about to become a fan of a team... Look at how many Laker fans became Laker fans from the Showtime Era.

Everyone was once a Bandwagoner, if you weren't born in a family of Fans, if so... those people were once bandwagoners.

Your post reads like this is a BAD THING? *shakes head*

Also to answer the previous "unasked" question, a lot of people were Clipper fans for a long time (NOT ALL). A lot just didn't want to go WATCH the games, because we were so horrible. But to be a fan of a loser team that's been a loser team for 20+ years, yet still stay a fan... is FAR from being "FAKE"

- JC

On topic, What's are the statistics for the Lakers Playoff Odds? ... Do they still need to pull off a good run?

You missed my point. Not surprised considering how educated your posts are here.

Moving on.

It would be like a Game 7, which means we will see vintage Pau for one last time in the P&G.

West Coast, I doubt you would be critiquing an "LOL" comment in the same manner from anyone but an avowed Clipper fan. From what I have seen in this thread, CJ has handled himself pretty well given all crap slung at him. If LN does not want a Clipper fan to post here, then please delete the NBA section. If you are going to continue this section, then please moserate it like a grown up moderator- you are supposed to rise above that sort of nonsense.

I'm assuming he meant "A game", as the best we've actually played so far, not at theoretical full strength.


Well in that case our 'A' game was probably when we blew out the Nuggets by almost 30 and that was without Nash as well.

We're playing a different style now though.

But if we bring our A game and Dwight remains healthy throughout the game and guys hit their shots and aren't lazy on D it will be a winnable game for us.

If we go through a quarter of luls we could dig too deep a hole.

And we have already lost twice to the Rockets, so they own the tiebreaker.

But we won once,and if we win the last game of the season,it'll be 2-2.
Impossible is nothing.
