Perhaps because this team never backs down despite being so depleted. We've overachieved by defeating quality teams like the Clippers and Rockets (although this was on the road) while coming close to the Spurs, Trailblazers, and Heat.
I hope I get the chance to watch a game live at Staples Center sometime in my lifetime.
I'm sure you will. hopefully while kobe still playing
Are we even watching the same team? Zero effort on defense makes this team a chore to watch, not fun to watch.
Everything about the team and staples is worse this year imo. roster, pregame music, organ every possession, flashing lights, food, parking getting harder/more expensive. Major let down in all areas. Oh and the price of tickets went up...again.
Fans have always been low energy except during big games and playoffs. I feel no difference this year. Been to 4 games
Yes i went to the xmas game this year ( Thinking kobe was gonna break out) and the crowd was way more energy than last year, or when i went to the first round of playoff a few years back. I think its because this team truly gives their all every night unlike pass seasons and as noknife said every win is a big one.
I also wanted to get all your guys thoughts on this but forgot to add it.
Once a ave player or a no name comes too the lakers. They always have their best season. Right? Something about the purple n gold brings out the best in players ( besides playing with Kobe n pau makes the game more easy). From Pau, Ariza, Clark, henry, meeks. farmar, shannon brown, ect.
i mean what are the players doing that left the lakers after break out years?
I love how this jersey bring out the best in people. This team this season Respects and are honored to play for the best team in NBA history.
