Phil explained why that's next to impossible for a west coast team to pull off due to the greater traveling distances. Not only that we are the Lakers which means scrub teams will play over their heads every night.

We'll do well to get to 60 wins with everyone healthy for a playoff run, especially Kobe and Nash due to their miles and Dwight due to his surgery. That matters more than blowing your wad during the regular season and being beat up by the time the playoffs hit which is what happened to the evil empire during the '08-'09 season.


Lakers had a great shot at it in 2000. They had one bad stretch where they lost 6 of 8. They were 67-13 and then they laid eggs the last two games. I remember being a little irritated that they were 2 games from tying a franchise record and they laid down. I like to call it Lebroning. Kobe Lebroned this year with the scoring title. I am not a fan of laying down when you have unique professional accomplishment at your feet. Durant didn't lay down this year, it bothered me that Kobe did. To me, anyway, it just sets a loser mentality, even if it isn't. I also can not understand why it was ok, and why we publicize D-Rob's 71 to win the scoring title in 1995, yet, if we talk about doing it now, you are looked at as a stat rat and selfish. This is sports, they have these accomplishments as big stats for a reason. Why not go for it.


I see it differently. I got more respect for Kobe for sitting out that last game. He cares about being right for the playoffs more than he does about regular season totals. He might have gone for it 10 years ago but not now.

Besides in 2000, we won it all and that's what really matters. What would have happened if we pressed for that 69 total and someone got hurt? Then it would all be for nothing. As a fan, all I care about is championships and if we drop a game or two so we don't run our guys into the ground that would be better in my opinion. 69 wins or 73 wins would be cool but it means nothing if we fail in the playoffs and anything less than a ring is failure.

Heck, Steve Blake could lead the league in assists if he started for this team, which is a roundabout way of predicting that Nash will win his sixth assist title

Um What?

We will not win 70+ games...we already have health issues and there are age issues as well. The emphasis on regular season win totals is asinine. Who cares? I expect the Lakers to save their energy for when it counts the most. Only doubt of this wisdom is that we have Clown as coach...and he might not be on board with resting/saving our starters for the playoffs at the cost of dropping some regular season games.

Lakers/Mitch Kupcheck get a very solid 'A' in my book this off-season. Why not an A+? In order for that to have happened,management needed to retain the services of point guard Ramon Sessions(the only real disappointing part of the Lakers off season). Had we been able to retain Sessions, and still acquire Nash, Howard, Jamison and Meeks, then that would equate an A+ off season. Still, one of the best off seasons in Laker history, and I am extremely humbled and grateful at how great of a job Mitch Kupcheck has done with this roster.
As far as predictions go, if Dwight is available at the start of the season, and they gell together quickly, then I say 61-21!

Hill would have been perfect, and I still have no idea why he left. The backup SF position is basically our only major weakness.

I still give us an A+ despite that and not keeping Sessions though. Some franchises would get an A+ just for trading for Howard without giving up more than one star and small pieces, while we added Howard, Nash, Jamison, Meeks, and kept Hill. That's an A+, if you say otherwise you need to stop and think if you're being a little spoiled or not. :man10:

As for Grant Hill, he chose the Clippers over us... the Clippers. If a player chooses the Clippers over the Lakers you probably don't want that guy anyway because he obviously has a loser mentality deep down, because nobody in their right mind should choose a franchise that's the definition of futility over arguably the greatest franchise in sports. When Grant Hill is going to his locker room for games and seeing Laker banners up on the walll and Laker greatness pictures on the walls of the hallways, and he's putting on that crappy white, blue and red jersey and seeing purple and gold everywhere, he's going to regret his decision. When we're deep in the playoffs or winning a title this year and Nash and Howard and Kobe and so forth are celebrating and Grant Hill is at home realizing he's a Clipper but could be out there celebrating as Laker, he's going to regret his decision.

Grant "Over the" Hill? Did we need to get any older than we already were. Maybe Mitch should have traded for a case of Geritol?

Grant Hill was an excellent player, and is still a serviceable guy, but he's 40 freakin' years old, and he has had how many knee surgeries? Granted, he's been relatively healthy as of late. Hill, 5 years ago, on this team would have been a godsend Unfortunately, he should just change his name to Overthe :man12:

I think if management can convince Leandro Barbosa to sign for the minimum, which he can play both guard spots, II'll give us an A+ this offseason. What's the status of Leandro? I heard he was interested in the backup point guard position.
By the way, kray was the you who uploaded the whole Dwight Howard press conference on youtube? If so, thank you very much for that :jam2:

^^^ I didn't know Grant Hill had any knee surgeries. Ankle?

And I don't care how old he is. Right now, he's better than Ebanks.

I'm sure he is mortified to be honest.

But it all works out. I think the Lakers will do fine with Ebanks. Ebanks has the ability to develop into a similar player as the decrepit old Hill, but with more athleticism. That'll be enough.

Yeah I don't get his decision either. It must have been either the Lakers didn't want him to the Clips just offered him enough more money for it to matter. His role would probably be the same for either team: back up sf.

I have to believe Laker interest in him wasn't too high. I HAVE to. There's no other reason to choose the Clippers over the Lakers. None. Nash, Kobe, and Gasol are arguably a super team. Obviously we didn't have Howard yet, but still. Add in Jamison and Bynum and you've got already a better team than the Clippers.

Of course now I bet he just hates himself, but damn. He could have been a part of something truly special.

All About NBA ‏@___NBA___
Lakers 2012-2013 Game-by-Game Predictions http://www.nbaarena.com/en/news/2412/la ... redictions

Spoiler:
During the offseason, the Los Angeles Lakers magically turned some future draft choices, Andrew Bynum and a couple of spare parts into Steve Nash and Dwight Howard. That's right Los Angeles somehow acquired a two-time Most Valuable Player (Nash) and a three-time Defensive Player of the Year (Howard) while giving up just one player that was in last season's regular rotation.

In addition to adding Nash and Howard to a starting lineup that already boasts Kobe Bryant and Pau Gasol, Los Angeles also signed free agents Antawn Jamison and Jodie Meeks to bolster its bench. Jamison and Meeks will provide some scoring punch to a bench that scored an NBA-low 20.5 points per game last season.

The Lakers hope that the magic they created over the summer will translate into a magical season. But only time will tell how soon and how well these new-look Lakers will gel into a cohesive unit.

Here are game-by-game predictions for the 2012-2013 Los Angeles Lakers:

Game 1, Tuesday, October 30 versus Dallas Mavericks- Lakers debut Steve Nash and Dwight Howard in a home win over the Mavericks (Record 1-0).

Game 2, Wednesday, October 31 at Portland Trail Blazers- Lakers defeat the Trail Blazers to successfully complete their first back-to-back of the season (Record 2-0).

Game 3, Friday, November 2 versus Los Angeles Clippers- Lakers open a brief two-game homestand with a close win over the Clippers (Record 3-0).

Game 4, Sunday, November 4 versus Detroit Pistons- Lakers beat the Pistons (Record 4-0).

Game 5, Wednesday, November 7 at Utah Jazz- Lakers get a road win over the Jazz at EnergySolutions Arena (Record 5-0).

Game 6, Friday, November 9 versus Golden State Warriors- Lakers defeat the Warriors for the fifth straight time (Record 6-0).

Game 7, Sunday, November 11 versus Sacramento Kings- Lakers get a home win over the Kings at the Staples Center (Record 7-0).

Game 8, Tuesday, November 13 versus San Antonio Spurs- Lakers fall to the Spurs and suffer their first loss of the season (Record 7-1).

Game 9, Friday, November 16 versus Phoenix Suns- Lakers rebound with a victory over the visiting Suns (Record 8-1).

Game 10, Sunday, November 18 versus Houston Rockets- Lakers get a close win over Jeremy Lin and the Rockets (Record 9-1).

Re: Sheridan hands out reports cards, Lakers get A+

Some franchises would get an A+ just for trading for Howard without giving up more than one star and small pieces, while we added Howard, Nash, Jamison, Meeks, and kept Hill. That's an A+, if you say otherwise you need to stop and think if you're being a little spoiled or not. :man10:

with all the lakers offseason acquisitions, you still have people who are like 'NOW IF WE CAN ONLY TRADE STEVE BLAKE FOR LEBRON SOMEHOW.. WE'LL BE SET'

it makes me start to understand the hatred laker fans receive from every other team's fans.
all i know is that no one is better than anyone else, and everyone is the best at everything.

We definitely get an A+, but IMO there's nothing wrong with voicing your opinion about getting rid of the rest of the garbage on our team. No one is saying trade Blake for Lebron, hell no one is saying trade Blake for any specific player, I'd be set with a TPE for him and nothing in return. That goes for Duhon/Clark/Glock/Morris as well..........

The main thing with wanting more is that, most people (myself included), see that there are still some nice free agents out there (Barbosa/Pietrus/Martin/TWill), that if we had the room for them and not the garbage named above, we could make our team that much better.

I see it as this core has 2-3 years to make a run, why not forget the projects and the has beens and get guys in here that can contribute now?

For the record I didn't say there's anything wrong with wanting more at all, I'd love to upgrade to Barbosa from Blake/Duhon. All I meant was if you downgrade our A+ to just an A because we didn't do more you need to step back and really think about what you're saying lol, 29 other teams would kill up have the offseason we just had.
