I personally on last count, it's last season. EVERY LOSS, I will stay away from NBA-related news, of course including our team...anything related to NBA, I'd shun away.

Can't see myself doing the same for today, they have a 3 day off...that's far too long, but I swore I did it before, but probably consolation of being 7-1 kept me out of here.

Otherwise, you guys/gals wun even see me here. =/

Share it ppl... :turrible:

Edit: Just realised this isn't exactly about Lakers...more to ourselves...if it's inappropriate, kindly move it to chit-chat. =X

It's okay to be upset, but don't obsess over it. I used to watch all the coverage after games or I think about it too much then I'd get really mad or extremely anxious.

I finally just stopped. lol It's not worth it anyway. What's done is done. You can't rewind history.

True, I'd move on when the next game starts, well, that's last season. Probably consoled myself with the previous wins...=/

im usually upset for a good 5 minutes. usually while im trying all this random crap on forums. :lol:
but after that, its all good, coz theres nothing i can do about it anyway. it's not the end of the world.

but when it comes to season ending losses like in the playoffs or something, im pretty upset for awhile.

i think it kinda depends on circumstances behind the loss...how good we've been playing prior to the loss, how good the team was, how bad we played, how close it was. most of the sports teams i'm a fan off have been losing for most of my life so i can usually handle a loss...

in most cases anyway...it was bad after we lost in the finals though...i couldn't even turn the TV on, or open a browser for a good 3 days

i'm usually angry 5-7min. most of the time it's directed at kobe. no player gets me angrier. like the 20+ lead we had on boston..i couldn't believe Kobe Bryant the best player in the world could not win us that game. Kobe Bryant 20+ lead, his glory, championship? he should have went crazy when the lead went to 15

In the regular season early in the season, I get angry and sad for a little bit but then I look at the next game to bounce back. If were talking any sports, Dodger losses never scare me because there are so many games. But football, because there is only 16 games per team, every loss hurts.

In the postseason or meaningful games, when the Lakers lose, I think to the next game. But if we get eliminated, like last year, during the Finals, I threw crap all over the place. I flipped the table. I didnt watch TV for a week. I made sure to not look at anything Lakers online. When Sasha slammed that chair, I saw a mirror image of me. It hurt really bad. When the Dodgers lose in the playoffs, its the same way.

Football losses hurt forever. The Broncos loss to the Steelers in the AFC Championship game in 2005 changed my life forever. I was always a crazy, fun kid. But that loss, changed everything good about me. It scarred me for life. When I think about football or Jake Plummer, thats the first thing that comes to mind.

I get emotional about losses, just about as emotional as Sasha gets.

Why is Radmanovic still on this team?

Arguably the greatest franchise ever

After a loss i just close the tv without watching the post game show and go to bed. So i dont get made at anyone lol. After sleep i just hope for a better game next time and talk about the game with my friends and how they could have done better and what they did bad the past game.

I'd be upset, of course, but not be all crazy about it as if it's like OMG THAT'S IT IT'S THE END OF THE SEASON!

I just let it go... for a first loss of the season that is.

Continuous losses in a row just gets me a bit antsy

LOL you talking it like if your girlfriend or boyfriend of 5 years just walked out on you... but yeah chill out guys.

An d I dont know if you guys caught what Stu Lantz said..."you must be stupid if you thought the lakers would go without a lost!"

I sleep.

Unless it's the play-offs, and instead I watch the press conferences, and then wrestle with sleep.

Good thing I fell asleep during the 4th quarter. Didn't figure out that we lost until now, so I don't feel as mad that we lost.
