I like the way Phil sees the situation the Lakers are in right now.

O.C. Register: Jackson wants to see full effort leading to an undefeated trip through San Antonio, Oklahoma City, Houston, New Orleans and Atlanta — re-establishing the Lakers’ championship veneer.

“4-1’s acceptable, but that’s not what champions look for.”

    the team needs to go with the attitude of sweeping the road trip too.

      They definitely do. I’m glad to hear this. Hopefully Phil will be on them to push harder and have more energy throughout the entire 240 minutes (yeah the five games I mean).

      When this team plays with energy hardly anyone can hang with them. Yes, you too Cleavland.

    Finally a gauntlet is thrown out there. I was wondering when the OFFICIAL playoff push was going to start.

    Well They not Playing the Cavs or the Bobcats But they are playing Spurs and Hawks it will be intresting But I honestly Can see them sweep that is if the Bench Plays well

    Beating all these teams and going 5-0 would send a statment throughout the league, if the Lakers want remind everybody who the champions are this would be a good way of doing it…

    I think the Lakers are going 4-1 in this road trip. They probably might lose to the Hawks because Lakers have struggled to beat since the 2007-2008 season. The Hawks always play the lakers tough.

    LOL! They’ll be lucky to go 2-3.
