"they have the talent" = phil's way of saying its the coach's fault if they dont make the playoffs

Phil is no miracle worker: he can't make lottery teams into championship contenders (see smush-kwame lakers). And with the way they're playing, they're definitely a lottery team.

Why give yourself such a headache when the end result is a major disappointment?

you're so wrong

phil is a miracle worker in the fact that he coached a team with d-league talent aside from kobe and lamar in 05-06 and 06-07 and led them to the playoffs both times, with the '06 team coming seconds away from defeating one of the top seeds in phoenix

i can guarantee you if phil wasn't the coach, those teams would have been at best a 9-10 seed


That team is so much different, was a lot of young guys and Kobe would still draw a double team regularly back then. Not so much now.

I love that people keep saying "Why Phil, so we can have a repeat of 2011?"

I'd LOVE a repeat of 2011 at this point!!!

Beat in the 2nd round by the eventual champs after two consecutive titles?

Sounds pretty tasty right about now...

Although I loved the quote, thats a common phrase, not a Phil-ism.

Phil's comment probably generated more confidence on the team than MDA has all season. Coaches matter.

He has spoken.
There are two teams that play in the Staples Center:
the LA Lakers and NBA Clippers.

Ummm yea... that and $1 outghta get you a cup of coffee somewhere because we aren't doing a thing for the next few years so do yourself a solid and drop the hope.. you'll feel much better when they inevitably fail or you'll feel much better if by some miracle they manage to make it past the 1st round. There was a time when every game bothered me like there was no tomorrow but then 2011 happened and I just came to accept that we weren't bouncing back in the Kobe era. Then I was shocked because maybe just maybe we had a chance when we got this crew together but then came MDA and all hope was gone and back to coming up short we came and went

I wish, but it will never happen.

It would mean too big of a loss of face for Jimbo (and Jimbo's ego is more important than the Lakers' future, it seems.)

Sadly, I can't agree with Phil on this one...
