NOTE TO EVERY LAKERS FAN
Settle down. You played 15 games in five weeks. Ten were at home. You played only two back-to-backs. Couldn't have been an easier start. Your real season started Tuesday ... you know, when you blew the 17-point lead to Indiana.
See where you are in three weeks; right now, you're about as realistic as unemployed Pop Warner parents bragging about their kids. If you beat the Celtics on Christmas Day, then you can talk about 70 wins and whether Trevor Ariza is better than Scottie Pippen. I need to move soon.
