"I still believe the Lakers can make the playoffs," Phil Jackson said in an email to The Times. "They might have to have a 'come to Jesus' moment to get their defense in order, but they have the talent."

Phil still believes. I believe. If the Lakers only get to the 8th seed when the playoffs come, I believe they can wit it all. Rockets did it when they were in 7th place in '95. I know it's a different sport but hell, do it like the L.A. Kings did last year. A 8th place team winning it all. Go Lakers!
