MC the general perception is a different one. Considering where we are NOW...ya, making the playoffs is a success. But before the season a top 4 spot along with WCF was basically "minimum" goal for us. Considering how we ended up playing, I would gladly take that NOW.

Unless somebody was insane or crazy, nobody questioned whether we make the playoffs or not.

"It’s a fact that we got a chance to make world history here," World Peace said after the Lakers won their second game in a row by beating the Thunder to improve to 19-25. "We got a great situation. We got a chance to make history. This is a beautiful situation to be in, the situation we’re in. This is beautiful."

only a dumb person would rather be 19-25 than 34-10. They have to make it a challenge but this is a terrible situation to be in where you cannot rest anybody and have to keep going strong.

Also this is history nobody cares about. Nobody is going to cheer Howard, Nash, Kobe, Gasol "coming back" to make the playoffs...it is already the most spectecular flop in recent professional sports history. Only the championship would redeem their season.

I get what you're saying, but doing it this way might actually lead to more success come playoff time. We have to maintain such a high level of basketball in the 2nd half to get a decent seed, we could enter the playoffs playing great ball & carry it over. As it stands, we need every win more than our opponent does. That hunger is a good thing.

solid gm, only real complaint he's terrible on fast brake situations, he's either forcing shots and missing layups, or a TO, either way Peace on a brake usually ends up being a bad play.

^^^ 2 posts up....I'm being master of the obvious here...... :man12:

IF we can play well enough with enough people in rotation contributing so everyone isn't totally gassed by the time we get there. Dan has to win games but he also has to be mindful of burning them out with too short of rotations. If that's possible. Would be nice to have Clippers bench.

Fatigue is an issue. Metta play 43 minutes against OKC. He needs to make better decisions out there offensively, though.

World Peace was not his normally whimsical, jovial self in the Channel 7 interviews yesterday. He was intense and serious answering questions. He played good defense yesterday though his bodying up on shooters led to some fouls. Great strips on off the dribble plays yesterday. The one on Westbrook looked clean.
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.

Yeah he was intense. I really wish he'd pass to Nash though when he's on the break. Ron leading the break :bang:

Bryant just spoke of how they are confrontational with each other so maybe someone should tell MWP to give up the ball on the open floor.

He looked kind of... dumb out there tonight. His shots were awful, his defense was kind of nonexistent, and I'm glad he was sitting to end the game.

What was all that crap about anyway?

Yeah I mean it's one bad game, without him we don't beat Utah or OKC, but he's gotta clean up that offense.

I hate it when he gets the ball and...

- Doesn't make the extra pass

- Waits for someone to come over to take a contested shot.

- Tries to dribble around

- Takes crazy off balance shots
