Today I’m not going to do any Marquee Match-Ups or playing coach. Instead I’d like for this thread to be more about you guys discussing the last eleven games of the season, and the impending return of our key players.
I will resume normal postage come Friday, when the grudge match against Memphis ensues (Well, they’ll have a grudge)!

Burning Questions/Resounding Random Rambles –
What are all ya’ll(s?) predictions for the last eleven games of the season? Can we go 11-0 and reach 60? or do we do a respectable 9-2? any “haters” out there want to rain on our parade and predict 5-6? That gives us one short of 55 win, BTW.
Does anyone else realize the utter dominance that this team will achieve next year? I can almost guarantee you, the only reason that the Lakers aren’t challenging the Celtics for the league’s best title is because of all the roster upheaval that happened this year.
I mean, We were on a nice toll when we traded for Ariza, and then we lost a few games that we should have won while we adjusted to him.
Then there was the amazing Mbenga signing that totally changed the perception of our franchise. After that we traded away our only sizable expiring contract for some European softy without a defensive resume, and not only that but we had to give up our stud prospect that was putting up great numbers in the Euro League too.
Okay, my attempt at humor is sadly lacking, but the point remains, we’ve been pretty much always on the verge of going off on a Rockets-esque run. Whether it was trades or injuries there was always something that derailed us the moment we seemed poised to go on an extended run. Next year I’m predicting 60 wins minimum, and I’m looking forward to the Lakers being the only team in the West to have secured their playoff spot by March.
Lakers Fans, I command thee to YouTube Andrew Bynum, refresh your memory and remember how utterly unstoppable he really was.
Actually, those links are pretty much most of the best Bynum clips.
