Not the worst season ever, definitely up there in most disappointing, since we were all delusional about their potential.

It really is the worst .. Missing the playoffs in 04-05 wasn't that bad, because we had a crappy team, but what's their excuse now ? We have 4 hall of famers in the starting lineup and we have to fight for that last playoff spot. Pathetic ..

I agree. This is easily the worst season in Lakers history.

I'm just waiting for this ordeal to end so that we can look forward to hopefully a better season next year.

The beat down last night, hopefully, made even the most hopeful fans realize the futility of hanging on to the view that this team can do anything meaningful. NoKnife is right, we were all pretty much delusional. Some of us saw the light earlier than others, but I think we can all see it for what it is now.

Where to go from here, that is the question?

No draft picks, because Mitch gave them away for a 39 YO PG and failed to lottery protect. That's just one bad move. Mitch has shown a propensity to pull off the big flashy deal, but when you really drill down on several of them, they are not so hot. Honestly, I dont see Mitch as part of the rebuilding process at this point. We need an RC Buford or Sam Presti protege that can evaluate young talent.

I say we need to clean house, with the exception of Kobe. He has earned the right to dictate whether he wants to retire a Laker or pursue a ring elsewhere. Otherwise, clean house, trading everything possible for draft picksand using amnesty on whoever has the biggest deal that cant be traded. Develop a 5 year plan to return to competitveness. Fire Pringles now.

The Orlando Magic are the template for this. Stockpile of draft picks, RC Buford trained GM, Popovich trained good young coach. They will be a force in a few years.

We can keep farting around or we can bite the bullet and return to REAL competitiveness, but it will take a vision well beyond the current roster of players.

The Lakers have missed the playoffs a total of 5 times. This year will be the 6th? What year has been worse than this? Not to mention the greatest owner of all time is dying. We have 4 future hall of famers and we arent going to make the playoffs ffs. WE have a superstar in Kobe Bean Bryant that just lost ANOTHER chance at a championship. We have a big idiot called Dwight Howard who will probably leave at this point after the season.

Yes this is by far the worst season ever for the LA LAKERS. It does not get worse than this.

The only year i can think of that is worse is probably when Magic announced HIV.

Nothing has worked this season--Everything has gone wrong. I cannot think of one positive thing.

Nor can I put my finger on who to blame.

Is it ownership that may have made poor decisions? Three coaches in one season, so which coach do you blame? Poor or should I say porous defense? Or does one blame the players, and if so whom?

Part of me wants pitchforks and torches and ride someone out of town on a rail. Yet finding a single person who is respoonsible for this meltdown of epic proportions is ellusive.

Greatest team money can buy and they get spanked by the Clippers who had a season high (125) point production who were on fire last night..

I long for the good old Laker days of past when a good coach took an inferior team (to what the Lakers have now) all the way to playoffs--you know MIke Brown last season.

It really isn't the GMs fault. Anybody would have made those moves, there is nobody on earth who thought that when the Lakers acquired Steve Nash they would be giving away a relevent draft pick, though it looks as if that is how it will work out. He also didn't know that he would be getting an injured and petulant child in Howard. Hiring the coach was a huge mistake, but that is on ownership apparently. Very bad season, and they would be best off cleaning house, letting Kobe dictate what he wants to do with the last season on his contract, whether it be stay a Laker or chase a ring elsewhere and start rebuilding, because the team they are fielding is not competitive and isn't getting any younger.

NoKnife, the only thing we dont agree on is the GM's responsibility for all this. its easy enough to start cleaning house now and stockpile the draft picks, then sort out in a year or so whether Mitch stays or goes.

Wonder what Time Warner execs must be thinking just about now ...

I'd be seriously talking about an offer to buy the team to try to save my tv contract investment.

the TV contract is long term, they will make their money. The Lakers are never down for long, they aren't the Knicks.

That has certainly been the history under Jerry Buss, but how confident of that are you going forward, if you just committed to a $3B deal?

And you know what?

The last reason you posted makes everything else irrelevant.

Things are bigger than a game. Dr. Buss being sick should put stuff in perspective for many fans who [expletive] and moan after every loss.

Definitely the worst since I started following the Lakers, myself. And to top it all off, one of the greatest owners of sports franchises is about to pass on. This season is somber for sure.
