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
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?
I'm not counting us out until we're mostly at full strength.
