It's easier to predict the outcome of these games now. Vegas, baby! :jam2:

Not worried quite yet. Still absolutely hating Mike Brown's rotations. That cost us the game tonight. We had no offense with his "length" lineup. The guys on the radio are calling for Meeks. Stu I think called for Meeks.

Yet we're going with World Peace.

I'm optimistic that maybe soon we start realizing that Brown's not the guy for this team. I don't know who is. Maybe it's Sloan, maybe it's Jordan, maybe it's Bickerstaff of JVG, but it's not Brown. I don't think he'll be fired any time soon, but I'm optimistic that Jim Buss isn't so in love with him that he'd waste a 100 million dollar investment for a 4 million dollar one.

Lakers fans really need to start a "We Want Meeks!" chant or something. Force Brown to play him.

OK, these are the upcoming games at Staples:

Fri 9 vs Golden State - I predict a W. 2-4

Sun 11 vs Sacramento - We have to beat this ****ing team at least once. W. 3-4

Tue 13 vs San Antonio - fuggedaboudit. 3-5

Fri 16 vs Phoenix - W. 4-5

Sun 18 vs Houston - Tough one. I'm going to be optimistic and say W. 5-5 (500! yay!)

Tue 20 vs Brooklyn - L. 5-6 (.500 didn't last long, did it?)

4-2 after this 6 game home stint. That's my prediction. Place your bets gentlemen.

If you're living in LA area and have some cash to spend now is the time to go attend games, the ticket prices are gonna go down like crazy. 6 home games in a row.

I sat in the lower bowl last Sunday and paid $80 for my ticket...which is unheard of for Laker games.

I like it! I think we can beat Brooklyn though, no Gerald Wallace, at least for now, but they had trouble with the Raptors, lost to the Wolves, & got murdered by the Heat, make that 6-5 :jam2:

Which is why I think a change will happen if the Lakers continue to stumble and bumble. If the product on the floor isn't generating revenue from the fans (and it is more than just ticket sales) how can management justify those prices? They can't. Buss is not stupid. The Lakers is a money making machine.

I dont like this. I feel like the lakers may win games at home, delaying the inevitable. Mike Brown must go, the sooner, the better.

Yeah, Brown took the excitement right outta this team. I'm lazy to make any efforts to get the new channel. If everyone can just Ignore the lakers until they dump brown on skid row, that would be great!

C'mon. I would NEVER bet against the Lakers, not even if I was 100% sure they'd lose. Principles dude, what are we without them?

Maybe. Though it could also go bad and we could lose to the Kings & the Rockets (plus Brooklyn), making us 3-8.

So if someone offered you a billion dollar bet right now, on the game we just played, you wouldn't take it? I call shenanigans.

A smart fan would take that bet, retire, and use that money to Laker out their car, their house, buy season tickets next to Jack Nicholson, and then bet ON the Lakers for every game going forward!

Cmon!

I agree. The Buss family just got paid a fortune to put out a great product on what's basically their own channel for TWC. Plus yeah, when you're shelling out 100 million for said product including 4 HOF players, you want more on your return than that. Jerry Buss is still here with us. I have to think at some point he's going to have to reign this in. The Lakers Nation is calling for the Potato Head's head on a platter. It can't go on indefinitely. The guy is just a bad fit. I'm hopeful it happens sooner than later.

For optimism - Golden State's coming to town! I'm thinking win number two. So we'll be on pace for what, a whopping .333 winning percentage?

That won't be good enough folks.

I guess I'd take it just to buy the Lakers (or at least a large amount of stock) and fire Mike Brown..
