I am a big fan of Z-Bo since he left NY.

We'd have our enforcer back. Z-Bo: "I'm good with my hands" :boxing1: :man1:

I am a fan of Z-Bo too. He's a tough guy. Very expensive too... he's not exactly young either. Yet, I think he performs right around his career average still. He's not slowing down at all.

I'll take one more year of Z-Bo over additional years of Gasol and/or 4 years of Carmelo ...

To limit our cap space (just) for next season may be the best thing to prevent our FO to keep our franchise irrelevant on a mid-term basis .

I am a fan of K. Marshall. He'll do well with this team.

It's hard to find optimism today...but when Kobe was out, we managed to do pretty well. Farmar is coming back and we signed another PG who if at least least bring the ball up and intitate the offense, then I'd say we're doing pretty good...lol. WTS, all is not lost. We have some keepers on this team that we can continue to develop and as a result have a decent shot to form one of the better benches in the league if we can keep them together...

Great win today. We were great on offense, sharing the ball, shooting 3, dunking, fast breaking.

Defense was better in the 2nd half too. Guys look good without Kobe, which is encouraging. Back to 50% ball.

Uplifting win today in spite of the recent tragedy.

Got nothing negative to say...even towards the coach. Great win up and down...but still, I hope we start...

Team played loose, not tentative. They did not panic and held the Wolves below the century mark.

Watching the Lakers vs Boston Christmas game after the 08 finals. Man watching these boys ball reminds me of how much I love the Lakers. Pau is beasting the last 3 minutes. The block Pau puts on the Ray Allen 3 that leads to An Ariza reverse dunk with 1:12 left was amazing. Kobe is balling. Ariza is making plays. Drew and Odom and Fish doing work.

What the hell does this have to do with the Optimism thread? I always believe in the Lakers ability to get back to doing what we do best winning games.

I say we will win this game tomorrow. Heat will be taking us lightly without Kobe and the rest of the injures, but this team is scrappy and doesn't give up. I say we surprise them like we did the Clippers on opening night :jam2:

So proud of our guys, they were there with champs with Gasol and "no namers" in tight game giving everything on that floor, yes there were A LOT of mistakes, but that's fine, for most of them this is first Christmas game on ESPN, this was awesome game, and our guys did what they could, and once again, i'm proud.

Competed. I'm not into moral victories, but hey, we went against the defending NBA back to back champions, and kept it close...I'm happy..

^^ Absolutely agree! There were a number of times where a lesser hearted team would have just laid down and died. But we kept coming back, kept making it close, all the way down the stretch. It was a hard fought game and I thought we did great. Wish we could have got the win.
