Who's disrespecting them? We're happy to avoid the Thunder mostly, they always beat us bad, we at least have close games with the Spurs. I have nothing but respect for the Spurs, I'd feel no shame in losing to them, while I can't stand losing to OKC.

Kinda hard to be excited about a 7 seed. We play for rings and nothing else so I will hold my confetti and pom poms for a finals win rather than a playoff berth.

Both will run us out of the gym, so it doesn't matter. :man10:

Gritty win to get in and secure the 7 spot! I love it. SAS is basically our best matchup besides Memphis. Whew! We avoid OKC in the first round. That's great. I give SAS the edge but again, I'm so pleased we made the post season and that we have this matchup. To me that's redemption for this terrible year. If we manage to make it out of the first round, killer! This is our best chance.

It's not that hard. We went from almost one of the biggest disappointing teams in sports history based on expectations when we were at 17-25, but we fought back to make the playoffs. By Lakers standards it's not a successful season, no, but it's better than missing the playoffs and at least we finally have something about this team to be a little proud of.

I'd take the Clippers with hopefully a hobbled Paul from a knee re-aggravation from the 1st or 2nd round.
In the real world, the day Steph awoke at 9 a.m. to begin his Ustream show, Kobe Bryant probably awoke at the same time, even if it was 6 a.m. in California, and lifted weights.

Out of the 3 scenarios

- play spurs
- play okc
- miss playoffs

YES I AM HAPPY.

Not a slight towards the spurs. Just the 'best' option for the team if any. We have a chance. Beyond that, who knows. But who cares?

I'm pretty sure Pop intentionally coached his team down to the 2nd seed so that they could avoid playing us in the first round. So yeah.

I hear you. I'm not upset we made the playoffs mind you, haha. I'm just not particularly excited about the mere fact of getting in. I am happy with how they pulled it together down the stretch, but then that reminds me they couldn't do it prior to that.

Just used to us being on the other side of the coin, staring down at the bottom seeds and chuckling amongst ourselves about how happy/proud they appear just to be there. And when you see (and receive texts) saying "OMG you guys! 7th seed!!!!!! Wooo hooo!" you're reminded that hey, we (fans) really do all sound the same when we're down here.

You look at their boards and they're all saying "Spurs in 5", "this is the matchup we wanted", and we're throwing out reasons why we should have a chance. Not saying there's anything wrong with it, it's just, when you're used to being on top like we have been, you forget that ultimately, at the micro level, we're really all the same.

I do feel like we're playing on house money though, which is always nice. Time to make history. I guess.

Road to the Championship will go through San Antonio, Denver, Memphis, and New York. Book it. :man12: :man10:

C Duncan vs Howard
PF Gasol vs Splitter
SF Leonard vs MWP
SG Green vs Meeks
PG Parker vs Nash <- by far the biggest mismatch but fortunately Parker is a streaky shooter so we can go underneath the screens

Bench

C Blair vs Hill
PF Bonner vs Jamison (Jamison has to outscore this dude)
SF Ginobili vs Clark
G Gary Neal vs Blake (just dont let Neal shoot 3s)

I think we can get away with a Jamison/Gasol/Howard frontcourt like we did last night...Howard was crazy mobile shutting down driving lanes and blocking shots at the rim,they dont have a dynamic SF so this might work

Our bigs will kill them, but the back court... we'll see.
