Well, luckily .500 can still get us in the playoffs (up to 7th seed!), so we're only 3 games out. :man1:

each game we lose, the more possible (though not necessarily probable) missing the playoffs becomes

To me finishing 5-8 is similar to missing play offs...i would rather miss them if we had pick
Couse no way we go further than 2round with out home court advantage at least in the first round...

lose in the first round IF we get there guaranteed at this rate. Defensive energy is nonexistent. not even for a minute.

I wonder at what point in the season will my delusions of grandeur finally set in and realize that the team might never turn things around. Right now I still have myself convinced they will go on a 30-6 run or something, but with every game that passes by I start to accept that they might just be bad enough to miss the playoffs. If that happens I think I give up Laker basketball for the rest of my life.

The over the cap 2004-05 team was in the same boat but bad contracts do expire and we get flexibility. We have a plan always (as long as the old doctor lives, that is)

Dude we have a $100 mil roster because we acquired players to win a championship NOW. We're not trying suffer through this season so we can build up to some plan in the future. This team was supposed to win now and instead they are free falling into a total disaster.

There are some seasons where you can expect mediocrity and tolerate it. This is NOT one of them

Let me say this, bring on OKC in the first round, as long as our 4 HOFers are all healthy

this minus the last sentence. i still feel like we will turn it around too but with every loss my optimism seems more and more like blind ignorance

The 2002-2003 Lakers not only fielded a worse team, but had a worse record than we do. I still have confidence.

Figure it out by the end of the season, and let's make a run for the finals as the 8th seed.

yeah and then it's gonna be "good lord people, we are only 40 games into the season"

this team is a freakin mess. there's no doubt they'll make the playoffs but it's a matter of whether it'll be a first or second round exit. that 2003 lakers team was 11-19 at one point and still made the playoffs with a roster 100x worse than this one
