Here's the thread for all of us who have given up on the current season. The Lakers suck this season.

Nope i still believe
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.

I can't give up fully until I see what moves the FO makes, there's still a slim chance to make the 8th seed if we make moves to improve the team's defense and morale.

As long as we have Kobe on our team, we will have a shot at the playoffs. I can't concede that yet.

Lol, no one's really giving up until all 8 X's are marked in the standings. All 8.

Anybody believe it's feasible Jim Buss will fire another head coach? Or Antoni will step down? There's no way in hell the Lakers don't get mopped up the rest of the games in this road trip. Memphis, OKC... wow. :bang:

It would probably take a coaching change and some serious trade magic by Mitch.

Indeed, but at least part of that is not out of the question. Until we are mathematically eliminated I cannot give up, just not how I'm built, my brain/heart won't let me. :man10:

I've yet to see a move since Game #1 started wherein the Lakers would benefit. Stupid coaching decisions after another. We're wasting $50 million on two players for this pathetic effort.

Trade Pau? How about use Pau properly...

I've given up on this season, which is a shame because Kobe, Pau and Nash are all one year older next season.

Given up hope, or given up belief?

I will never give up hope, but I believed this team was done in the first few weeks of the season.

You never gave up hope because you never had any in the first place. Well played, sir...

No.. The difference is like this... I hope the lakers go 82-0 every year but i do not believe they will.

I don't see the effort on the court translating to Jim's inaction/action (I'm assuming that choosing NOT to go with Phil had Jerry's blessing).. Our Lake show looks like a group of old, poorly coached individuals who have no conviction or pride in wearing the p&g.

This is on our players individually. And despite that I still believe we can turn this around at some point.

The guys simply are not playing for each other, they look confused out there. That's all on the coaching IMO. The only way this works is firing DAntoni and letting Bickerstaff finish the season. Or, Jimmy Buss caving and begging Phil Jackson to take over the team until Kobe retires.

I understand the frustration that this team has given us fans...believe me.......I do.

But do we really need an "I give up" thread?

^^ This, all the freaking way. I know we are sucking badly right now. But I will give up only if there is no more statistical chance to make the playoffs. If that happens, ok. But not now.
