I know we are beat down with injuries, but this is getting to the realm of ridiculousness right now. Guys play a few good games, have one bad stretch, and then they are not starting anymore or getting reduced minutes. I just wish MDA could settle on something. I understand the point guard woes and Pau getting sick but it was like this even when the team was relatively healthy this year and going back to last season. Find a rotation already

I wish he would just stick with:

 

PG: (Whoever is available)

SG: Jodie Meeks

SF: Wesley Johnson

PF: Jordan Hill

C: Pau Gasol

Hill WAS terrible

 

I went to the game, if you would have seen the difference n  floor running between Hickson/Faried and Hill, it was HORRIBLe.

 

 

Hill looks like he was favoring his hip or something because he was not the Hill that we saw to start the season

 

 

And the injuries DO have something to do with it

 

 

The Suns didn't do this at all, so to just say typical MDA is typical of someone who wants to BASH and asses blame.

 

We [expletive]ing suck. Period. The assets that were making us okay( Blake, farmar, X) are out, and its noticable

"I know we're beat down with injuries but....."

 

But nothing. All 3 of our original point guards (Nash, Blake, Farmar) have been injured. We used Xavier to run point then he got injured. Then Farmar came back for a game or 2 and he got injured again. Now we're using Marshal as a starting point guard.

 

Oh and Kobe hasn't played 9 of the last 10 games so he did play in the 10th. Mathematically it would be impossible to not have at least 5 different lineup changes.

 

Lineups:

- One with Kobe

- One without Kobe

- One with Xavier Starting

- One with Kendal Starting

- One with Farmar Starting

 

So if you're going to complain about anything it should be "5 different lineup changes in the last 10 games", but even so you'd be wrong to complain. This team has been too infested with injuries to expect a lineup that is consistent.

injuries have to be part of it. your playing with the 2nd unit and bench warmers, The Lakers are still playing as hard as they can, just not as hard as they were from the beginning. MDA is running all his" energy guys" into the ground. Hill should be starting, but he seems better off the bench. He isnt giving Kaman a burn what so ever. His coaching and the injuries are killing the Lakers.

Also Wes was injured one of those games and hence didn't start

Stop being logical you..you.. logical person! 

Not to mention the lineups with Wes sick and unable to play or start =P

Hill is always semi-hurt. every season.  I love the dudes hustle but you guys show a little too much love to him... you act like he is Faried.

 

I bet there will be a 11th. Way to give the team a chance to gel MDA

Hill is hurt now.

I was in the 300 section. From the top, you can see his running strides are compromised.

Hill definitely hasn't been the same. Doesn't really have much impact each time he plays. Still would rather him start than Sacre but I understand why Sacre is starting when we've been so horrible protecting the rim.

Sure did a good job of that. We only let their team score 137 points and a scrub (Mozgov) score 20 points !

Havent some of the 2nd half starting lineups been different than those used to even start the game??

If so add more lineups to the equation. We're being held together now with spit and snot.


Praying for 1. Kobe's Health, 2. High Draft Pick (Randle!) 3. Miracle Trade (Not yet), 4. Quality Free Agent (Boozer, kind of), 5. Brilliant Coaching Hire (Byron!...but the jury is out)
