Nash will be back. That's the only optimism I have left for this team.

I thought Duhon did a decent job for the most part. But sadly Morris has really regressed.

OK we can still tie the 96 bulls' record.

Seriously, I agree LJ, Duhon looked good out there.
I like Jamison's decision making for the most part. He's quick, he doesn't hesitate with shots/drives/passes.
Hill got some run and did well.

Nash is one day closer to returning.

Pretty much the only optimism I have at this point is that the team should be better when Nash gets back. But really, the way this team finds ways to lose games, it's pretty faint.

Lakers had Kobe, Shaq, Fisher, Horry, Fox, Shaw and Jax as the coach but started the season 19-23. Ended at 50-32 and lost in the 2nd round.



It's not so much about the "lost in the 2nd Round" part of this tweet as is the idea that we can still be alright

Different scenario though ... we were the 3 times champions and the best player in the league was out due to surgery done on company time ... lack of motivation was a big part of the 2nd round exit

This season team is supposed to be hungry ...

We are winning games for 3 and a half quarters. This is an inconsistency issue not like last year where we just struggle from the tip to finish. We just need to focus harder and finish teams off

CLark and Hill looked great together

Jamison and Duhon did well

We'd have to go 31-9 after the ASB. Possible?

AAR, both our PGs are out, and Gasol is playing injured (well, was playing), so I think we have a legit excuse with some of these losses. We're not the deepest team, so any injuries can severely affect us.

Even when Steve Blake was playing well and uninjured, we were actually winning. I mean, wasn't he crowned the Lakers' MVP for early last season before his rib injury? :man10: I'm not counting us out until we're mostly at full strength.

In the continuing WTF file, the Lakers are 5th in offense... 8th in defensive efficiency, 7th in net efficiency. Still cannot figure it out.

Its because we've won so many games in blowout fashion and lost way too many close games (including ones that we had control over & relinquished in the final minutes).

The record is somewhat misleading. We're a better team than the record says.

I have never seen a team in the top 10 for both stats be below .500.
