I should get an assist for that. It's an intentional pass to oneself, so it's an assist. That way people can't say all I do is shoot.

Yeah. There's games I'll miss due to obligations, but I'll continue to see on TV or go to 85-90% of them. It just kinda becomes part of your life, you just have to keep the negativity in check on a season like this.

I will continue to watch, but I have to admit that I am not watching that closely lately. Last night, I fell asleep in the 4th quarter. Normally, that would never happen, but now..... they suck and I'm getting older, so... yeah.

My wife woke me up just before the game ended with a smile saying "are they winning today?"

No, they are not winning that often anymore. :man6:

If they lose to Cleveland and Kyrie humiliates them again, I will certainly take less interest. Too much time and emotion already invested. Too much lost sleep. Too many angry and depressed nights.

This disappointment is getting to heavy...

I will just check box scores and read a few pages here. If Jim Buss is giving up on the season and not making moves then why should we spend so much time, energy, and money on the most underachieving team in professional sports history.

To not even make the playoffs was unthinkable in October. Yet here we are...

Even in our championship years I missed so many games including playoff games because sometimes I had to stay up till 530 in the morning. However, I still watch my fair share of games.

this.. not watching doesnt make me bandwagon...

when youre SOOOO emotionally invested... you just cant watch your loved ones get hurt like that..

i have to let my ex wife take the kids to get shots... cause i wana cry when my kids do and punch the doc out...

also at the same time... sometimes i feel like they dont try so why should i... i stopped after the sixers game too... i still have to go to work everday and defend my teams to all the NUGGETS and HEAT fans here in Colorado... so no i dont think that just cause you dont watch youre not a true fan...

im like the band on the Titanic... im not panicing or watching the ppl jump overboard.. just doing my thing.. i'll drowned when the time comes like all of you.. but .. i saw the inevitable awhile back.. and just chose to play my song instead of join in the hoopla

Yes, because I live for those games where we play well, things are clicking, guys are having fun, we see multiple players contributing.

I will say though I have watched fewer postgame wrapups than I have in years.

i always try my hardest to watch every game

but recently i haven't been watching too many but rather checking the score and watching the highlights. i remember 04-05 but that wasn't nearly as painful as this season. the 04-05 team wasn't supposed to win a title, this team was

Being cautiously optimistic, I always temper my expectations regardless of who is on the team or whatever. I can't watch the games because my satellite provider does not carry TWC for now BUT I do keep tabs on how they are doing. What I don't do is read the Sports page as much. I do feel for the fans that love the team and the organization from a rooting standpoint.
Nor can the Lakers get blamed for always making the right decisions over decades. At some point its not just luck or "gamble", its superior management and superior ownership.

Didn't either but always made time when I could.

I haven't ever watched every game in a season. The best I did was back in the 80's when I was at every home game (season tickets) and maybe saw 20 to 30 of away games.

Reading some comments here, how could you not watch every game of the season or at least try? We all have lives here but I couldn't imagine skipping so many games myself...

its too hard to watch every game now. too emotionally invested. cant take all these losses and knowing that every loss makes it nearly impossible for this team to make the playoffs.

Absolutely! I've missed very few games due to situations beyond my control, even with work a family, and games lasting till 1:30 in the morning (living on the east coast) and having to get up in a few hours...I'm too die hard of a fan not to watch, even this season. Plus I bought league pass broadband at the beginning of the season so I'm definitely gonna getting my money's worth!

No. If I am home and available to watch the games then I will watch them, without question. However, im not cancelling plans or putting things off to watch this team anymore. Sorry, call me a fake fan or whatever, but I personally feel its a waste of time watching a team who clearly doesnt care and does not put in a good effort. This team is lazy. They dont show up when they dont feel like playing hard, and lose to scrub teams.

i don't watch every game anyway, sometimes you just have plans and life happening.

i watch when i can, but it doesn't matter of this was a championship team or not, i'm unable to watch 82 games a year at 2.5 hours a game plus potential pre and post game analysis.

As I did all season I'm still going to stay up or wake up early and than be pissed the whole day and ask myself why do I need to watch losses and be tired all day :man10: (Note: Games are most of the times around 3:00 to 4:30 am here for me in Germany - the Raptors game next week will be a blessing :man11: )

It'll get better :jam2:

I don't see why those saying no are getting so defensive, nobody said you're a fake fan or not a true fan if you don't watch every single game. I don't watch every game live, we all have other obligations, other plans, lives that can't be put on hold. I do watch every game though, because if I miss it live and it's a big game I DVR it or I catch one of the multiple replays on TWCSN, even if it's just the compact version. That doesn't make me more of a fan it's just what I do because I love basketball, pro especially, and the Lakers are my team. So when I say I'll keep watching every game all I mean is I'll keep watching as if we were still good, as frequently as I normally do. Not to suffer as a 'real fan', just because I love basketball, and when the season is over I'll miss it, so I have to see as much as I can while it's still on. Plus how will I know if we do turn things around at some point if I'm not watching? How will I be able to discuss our team here and what issues we have or what things look like they're being fixed if I'm not watching? That's how I look at it, I don't hate on anyone else if they deal with our sucking differently.

^i know alot of people dvr the game, but i've never done that. i have a hard time watching non-live sports, mainly because i know i'll end up finding out the score of the game. just a personal thing.

also, quite honestly, sometimes i need a break from it. too much emotion tied into it. we all know how that goes.
