Our offense looked so nice last night. It wasn't JUST Princeton and the PG (Kobe really was the PG most of the night, especially in the 1st half) looked for his. That was a taste pretty much of what we should look like when Nash comes back and is playing aggressively.

The offense was never the problem so much as turnovers were the problem. As time goes on we're going to limit those. I think 15 is still too high and 15 against a bad team probably looks more like 20 against a good team, but the defense was there last night so that helped balance things out.

The bottom line is we got the monkey off our back by beating up on a bad team. That's what we needed to do and we did it. It's something to be happy about.

I can't believe we held someone to 13 points in a quarter. I don't care if it's the lowly Pistons; I'll take it. :jam2:

With Brown continuing to run with nonsensical lineups, his chances of being fired go up exponentially

Keep it up Turd Face :jam2:

Jerry West said when he was coaching the Lakers and lost his first three reg season games, the team came back and won the next 12 in a row. That team went on to lose in the west conf finals.

Every player who played made a field goal even if we did tie (or almost tie) our team record for lowest field goals in a game. Pretty impressive.

Some optimism...

06-07 Suns started 1-5, and finished the season 61-21.

A bad start can always turn into a great finish, but only if your players believe it's possible. I HIGHLY doubt any of the guys in the locker room have faith in Turd Face to turn this team around.

- My provider is DISH
- I'm relieved that I really, really, really like college and pro football
- I have an extensive music and movie collection
- I get along well with Doc Brown
- My gym membership is $75...yearly
- I'm employed...

My apologies as I don't have anything to add that is Laker RELATED at this point. :man10:
Nor can the Lakers get blamed for always making the right decisions over decades. At some point its not just luck or "gamble", its superior management and superior ownership.

Hopefully the FO is watching the games.

Jordan Hill is fantastic. He is the type of bench player that every team needs and he is fulfilling that role to perfection.

That's about all I've got. Everything else is 'something could be, but it's not' type of optimism.

I mean, I guess I'd single out MWP a bit as well, he's got some fire and some charge, and you know he means well. But he's playing starter's minutes on bench talent, and it's showing.
