Make no mistake how the injury bug has plagued the Lakers this season but lets delve deeper into how much and how many games missed by our playeres has added up this year so far...

LAL games missed to injury

Jordan Hill: 42
Blake: 37;
Gasol: 33(best stretch of the season);
Nash: 24;
MWP: next 6 weeks;
Howard: 6;
Bryant: 2;



All I have to say is wow...

Best we can hope for now is to stay healthy for whats left of the season.

Can somebody with actual basketball knowledge explain to me why this team runs so much better without Gasol? And its not up for debate because the numbers don't lie

Complete defensive liability for the most part, far too hesitant & unselfish on the offensive end, unwilling and or afraid of physical contact/banging down low, lacks self-motivation/fire/hunger/true passion.

Every team gets injuries. The Lakers could have zero injuries, their fate would be the same. Blown out of the playoffs.

As topheavy as the Lakers are(been that way for years especially the shaq/kobe era). That with this many injuries they are dealing with they are even in contention.


Gotta hope for no more injuries the rest of the way.

Other than Hill and Howard were old so injuries down the stretch of the long NBA season isn't a shocker.

Lakers have 14 players. Seven of them are on the injury report for tomorrow in SAC. Kobe (foot) is listed as ...

questionable right now. Besides Metta (knee) and Jordan Hill (hip) being out, everyone else is probable -- including Nash (right hip stiffness) despite not playing down the stretch last night.

The other probables are Pau (foot), Antawn (wrist) and Dwight (shoulder).

BTW, of the 14 players, two of them were getting kidded ("Why are you in the game?!") before the game last night in Milwaukee because they were actually playing in the previous meeting vs. the Bucks on Jan. 15: youngsters Darius Morris and Robert Sacre.

Besides Kobe, Nash, and Dwight, Hill is obviously the one player we most the miss.

At full strength, the Bulls are not as talented as us...Yet, they've had just as bad of an injury situation, if not worse, and even with this, they have a better record than us and are in the playoffs. Injuries obviously are a factor, but not as big a factor that a team like this misses the playoffs because of it. Injuries don't make you into a pathetic .500 team. I'm not going to be drinking the cool-aid that Mitch and Jim will try to sell about injuries being why we missed the playoffs.

Last year it was, "we didn't have a training camp." This off season I hope it isn't, "injuries derailed our season." The excuse kept brown around for an 0-8 pre season and a 1-4 regular season start. Immediately firing dantoni the minute the season is done will go a long way in making me comfortable with the FO. Picking two horrid coaches and keeping them around would be a bummer

You aren't getting Phil back.


So even if D'antoni was fired you wouldn't get Phil and would be disappointed anyway.

You also aren't getting Shaw and if you've seen one Pacers game you would bash your head on a desk if our offense was as sloppy.

We also don't have the capability of having an athletic defensive 4(he's injured) so we wouldn't be playing defense like the Pacers either.


Adelman is also retiring after this year.


So before you jump on the fire D'antoni bandwagon. Understand you won't be getting Phil, Shaw, or Adelman and ask yourself who you'd truly be alright with.

And then realize all your hopes resting on Phil returning will never happen and the alternatives would leave you feeling just as empty :)

I know Phil isn't coming, and I know Bryan Shaw isn't the answer. But come on! MDA stinks up the joint. I am sure that someone, better than the current coach, will come available. Shoot go to any high school around here and I think you'd find someone better. Or even the Rec center.

Post of the year here.

 

Love how people think we can just throw MDA away whilst STILL  paying Mike Brown for three more years.

Dantoni is 152-196 since leaving the Suns.  That is not someone I would want running the premiere franchise in the NBA with the highest payroll in the league, but what do I know about hiring head coaches, I'm not the one that is going to be paying Mike Brown for the next 3 years to sit around at home, probably paying Dantoni to golf for a few seasons after there is rioting in the streets when the Lakers miss the playoffs in a few days/weeks, all after giving the middle finger to the greatest coach the game has ever seen when he showed interest in coaching the team.  This was all done in a 6 month time frame.  The Jim Buss era is off to a great start.
