is it bad that I don't even care we lost?

You do care. You care because you hold hope it will eventually lead to MDA's firing.

Damn firing MDA will totally make up the 2012 2013 season.

I have no idea why we keep trying to attack Timmy. Whoever hes not guarding is guarded by Tiago or Bonner. Take advantage. But they dont.

The Spurs did what they were supposed to do. Now it is our time to protect our home-court and come back to SA with the series tied at 2. 



Arguably the greatest franchise ever

In the series so far...Nash shooting only 43% from the field and averaging 4.5 assists while Dwight is getting only 12 shots and shooting 62% from the field. BALLHOG!!!!

Bhahhahahahaha

Oh
That was good
Thank you, I needed a laugh

This team is cooked
You knew it was bad when:
mike brown was coach
0-8 preseason
Nash walks into Howard during upwards game 1 pre game reutine he does every game
Nash is hurt
Our idiot coach is fired and is replaced with an even worse guy
Gave cold shoulder to the greatest coach ever
Injuries to hill
Injuries to pau
Howards back
Ownership dying
Refusal to have any change in player personal, even though personal was a bad fit with the first coach, and worse with the 2nd


This season has been doomed for day 1
The only saving grace was Kobe
He is the only reason this lakers season was worth watching

I like aggressive Nash, but he's just not knocking down his shots. He already wasn't giving the Lakers a lot of playmaking. Now, he's not even knocking down shots.

 

Honestly, what is he good for? Shooting at a high efficiency was his only positive for the Lakers, which was diluted because he didn't really shoot a lot

It baffles me that D'Antoni would put Morris and Clark on the same floor with Dwight. I know it's for defensive purposes, but it shrinks the floor for Dwight to be effective down the post. I've seen a couple of times Morris' man leaves him like he's no threat at all to force Dwight into a bad shot or a turnover.

The Spurs play a zone-man defense at times, so at least one of their guards swarms the ball down low. 

 

While the post player can theoretically pass the ball outside, the post player typically has a big guy behind him, pushing him, and a guard swatting at the ball, so getting a pass off to an open Morris or Ron Artest is really hard. 

 

I give kudos to the Spurs for developing an interesting defensive scheme. 

 

I've tried to watch it to see who is playing zone, but must admit that I don't know and don't fully understand it.

Popovich is probably gonna rest his starters in game 4, so they can be fresh for the second round. Lmao.

Nash, Blake, Meeks couldn't stop Tony and Manu even when they were healthy. Now that they're all hurt, who's gonna stop them? Instant sweep.

Sweep can't come fast enough.

 

Please San Antonio, put this team out of our misery.

The Lakers really missed their shot a winning a game in game 1 where they played decent defense. They played some of their worst offense of the season in that game. Credit the Spurs' defense in that game, but the Lakers' offense was just awful.

 

When it comes down to it, this team can't be relied upon to provide offense when it really matters either. And, our coach is supposed to be great in that area.

I'm disappointed in the Lakers not because of the outcome, but because of how they've looked this series.

 

I expected the Spurs in 5 and thought a sweep was a possibility, but the Lakers haven't even been competitive at all. I thought they at least legitimately improved after how they played to end the season, but that's clearly not the case.

 

The Lakers have played like the worst playoff team. I think even Milwaukee has been better than them. Miwaukee has looked better than them against a better team.
