I don't know if this is a conspiracy or what...Lakers having long lay offs. IMO having these long lay offs would be great if it was after 40+ games especially having a 6-8 road games in 12 days. Having long lay offs early in the season is plain dumb!

Okay I'm done venting.

seriously, its basketball...how do you play 2 games over 9 days? football players play more often than that...we've had the same amount of games in the last 7 days as the cleveland browns and denver broncos

this is a good chance for our big guns Kobe, Gasol, Bynum to rest up and get ready for the rest of the season

i think its a good thing to have these long layoffs early.

No conspiracy anywhere.

For years now people think the league has something against the Lakers succeeding. That's simply ridiculous. Financially and popularity-wise its in the league's best interest to have a major market do well every year. Since the Knicks can't get their act together and the Bulls have trouble finding any kind of solid core, the NBA is happy to have L.A. and Boston do as good as they are right now.

The schedules are made by a computer program run for every team, every year. Depending on available dates of arenas, flight schedules, no 3 games in a row possibilities, keeping traveling teams playing all the locals at once, other teams' availability and schedules and a ton of other factors the schedule gets spit out.

Its nothing more than random chance. This year just came out odd.

The schedule is going slow right now, but let's be happy that the Lakers are getting some rest after their shortened offseason especially Kobe, Pau, and Yue.

If your able to think, this means that at the end of the season we'll be having a lot of games and not anymore 2 weeks lay offs, so quit crying

but we could lose this game due to lack of continuity, and the next game our rhythm could not be there yet
Again - this team, as currently constructed won't make it out of the second round of the playoffs, let alone the West or win the Finals.---fido on 2011 Lakers

Actually, despite not playing, this gives the players and staff time to work out further what needs to be done...but that's without practical experience of course.

If we have to rant, it will be before the season has started, not with 1 game left in this lay off. After next game at home, 2 back to back away games. Next week is gonna be tough.

Thanks for clearing that up.
