Don't see us catching the Grizz, Spurs or OKC

so it's anywhere from 4th to 7th IMO.
There are two teams that play in the Staples Center:
the LA Lakers and NBA Clippers.

Lakers had Kobe, Shaq, Fisher, Horry, Fox, Shaw and Jax as the coach but started the season 19-23. Ended at 50-32


Let's wait a few games when we finally have our full 5 starters back before we start jumping off the cliff.

No but seriously......I am not over panicking just yet. We still have time.

Wouldn't bet any money on it.

Oh no we suck again
For what it's worth, the Lakers also clinched the Pacific Division, an achievement Bryant dismissed by saying "We don't hang divisions." No, only the big NBA championship banners are considered wall-worthy for the Lakers.

I still think we'll make the playoffs, we just might not have HCA for any of the rounds.

Losses against teams like Orlando, Cleveland, Utah (twice), Dallas, Portland, etc will only feel worse as the playoffs and the threat of not making them approach

4th seed. As bad as we are playing now, WE ARE going to make the playoffs.

There are 8 teams in the west playoff picture right now, and that isn't including Denver or Houston(or us). We need to get our ish together real fast.
Every time I begin to ask, "Is he really as great as I think he is?" ...He proves that he is.
Every time I begin to wonder...He proves it...That is why I won't lose hope in him.

I honestly thought going in to this season that I would be stressing out because Lakers might not get the #1 seed. Speechless.

I'd rather the team struggle now then struggle later in the season. I have no doubt that we will make the playoffs.

Even if we don't have HC advantage coming in... It shouldn't matter cuz the team need to show that we can win road games.

Watch us miss the playoffs barely, luck out in the lottery, grab the #1 pick, and draft Andrew Wiggins. Hey, at least it would be better than going out in round 1 or 2. Wiggins can help us for the next 10 years.
