Let's beat the Clippers on Friday and Denver on Sunday to finally go over .500. That will give me SOME optimism...

OKC just got trounced at home by a .500 Brooklyn team. TROUNCED. There is reason to be optimistic! :bow:

Is it to hard to just not post in the thread if you don't have anything "POSITIVE" to say? We have 9999 negative threads and yet people have to come in here to piss further on our team. :bang:
For what it's worth, the Lakers also clinched the Pacific Division, an achievement Bryant dismissed by saying "We don't hang divisions." No, only the big NBA championship banners are considered wall-worthy for the Lakers.

Isn't Jan 15th like an opening of some sort for signings or trades or something...?

It's when everyone in the NBA is available to be traded.

Hopefully Pau shows up against the Clippers on Friday. Maybe beating the Clippers on Friday will give this team the spark it needs.

warriors destroyed the clippers. and we beat the warriors. thats something to be optimistic and happy about.

when we bring the energy and effort and share the ball were a very good team. even with a less than healthy dwight and pau.

This game should mean more to the Lakers than the Clippers, so hopefully, the Lakers will decide to show up!

Alright...

This is my thread. This is my place to go on this site where I can smile, where I can enjoy my time, where I don't have to deal with the ridiculous, the insulting, and the idiotic. This is where I, and like minded people, go to get a break from the never ending doom that showers not only this site, but Laker fans all over the world right now.

If you can't respect that, then stay the hell out of here. This thread won't be deleted just because one person thinks it's futile. If you've given up then go away. Or better yet follow a team that you won't give up on. Some fans don't want to give up. Some fans will continue being optimistic or finding reasons to be happy or excited about this team as long as they live. Others like you will try to bring us down, but there's dozens of threads you can visit to do that. This isn't one of them.

Some fans don't want to panic. Some fans want to see the light at the end of this "crappy play" tunnel. Some fans want to have something to look forward to, something to lean on. Something to hope for and the posts in this thread are supposed to reflect that.

This is where I go to get a break from posts like the ones you've put in here. I've made the rules simple. I've made what this thread is about known. If you have things to say that aren't positive, then post them somewhere else. If you want to be a jackwagon, do it somewhere else because this is not the place for it.

Your posts aren't welcome here. This is as nice as I'm going to ask you. Please stay the hell out of this thread if you're going to be posting that way. However, if you have something optimstic to post, feel free.

I say just delete the post Real. It is obvious the only purpose is to derail the thread and be a douche. It isn't a complex thing to stay away from this thread.

I felt like the statement needed to be made that's all. There's so much doom spreading these days, I think this place is a nice thread to at least try to look forward.
