The board isn't to help people grow up. its to talk about Laker stuff like rational people.

Insults are unnecessary on all fronts.

Rise above.

Basically what the stat says is that when Andrew (or more generally, the Laker big men) play strong inside defense, the Lakers win.

We have 16 games in January. 8 of those games are against teams that are a lock to make the playoffs and who are all having good, if not great (Cavs, Magic) seasons. We open up the new year with the Jazz in our house on the 2nd, then the Blazers and Hornets come here for revenge on the 4th and the 6th, respectively. We do the Rockets/Spurs Texas Two-Step on the 13th and 14th, and then get the Spurs back in Staples on January 25th. 8-8 in January is completely unacceptable, but 12-4 is certainly a reasonable goal to shoot for and possibly exceed.

All of these teams will be physical. Pau's weight room training certainly isn't enough. It is time for Andrew Bynum to kick it up a notch and to start to dominate a little more on the defensive end. Block some more shots and we'll come out of January smelling like a rose and ready to tighten things up for the stretch run.

IMO a record of 10-6 is a good goal to set, it will be exceeded if we play the right way, and also, we dont want to play Excellent until Late April- June, but why not 14-2 from a fan's standpoint
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

From a fans standpoint, I wouldn't mind them going 16-0

Because if we wind up hitting a little bump in the road, then we (us fan) start to unnecessarily press panic buttons, like we did when our defense fell apart from game 8 until the 4th quarter of the Grizzlies game. Is it possible that there was some experimenting going on that the coaching staff understood while they felt they could win anyway? I'll defer to Phil Jackson on what he feels is an acceptable record at the end of this month.
