Here's to the Nash & Sacre 2 man game and Sacre's beastly rolls to the basket.

Here's to Jamison playing.

Here's to Earl Clark drilling more free thows a la "Sasha in Game 7 2010 NBA Finals"

Can we convince YOU to retire? Can we trade you? Can we let you walk?

Anything to get you off this board please.


2nd this sentiment, go back and cheer on your Cowgirls, they're be relevant again someday :man10:

I don't even know what post you're referring to. Did you make that one up? You shouldn't tease posters like that...

Jamison played an extra minute! Next game he will get 5 minutes for sure, one baby step at a time... Oh, and Morris not playing that is always a plus...

okc just lost to the wizards. they have the day off then play the timberwolves. then a day off then us. might be a little tired and they'll be on the road so maybe if the lakers face the adversary head on and win against houston and somehow the spurs they could have enough to beat the thunder.

highly doubtful but if the wizards can beat them then there is always hope

Well guess what we lost so it might as well have been 26-6 the other way around because the stats mean little if you can only zone in for a game rather than virtually every game this season like Kobe but thats another story.

My optimism comes from the hope that when the train wreck that is this season is finally over you people who have spent the past 3 years clinging to the past thinking we could get the job done when we clearly didn't and can't and anyone that said otherwise was always put down called a hater or not a real "fan" My hope is you all take a couple shots of humility and accept that you all were all WRONG!!! You deserve to have it thrown in your faces time and time again that you were WRONG untill you all realize the error of your ways and get a grasp on the fact that we were old we were slow and the game has changed! The small ball era is alive and well so time to get young and get shooters or get left behind.

My other optimism is that management will accept the error of their ways and never make a darn near franchise ruining decision like hiring a basketball abomination like never won a big game Mike ever again. They deserve this too for how they just so disgustingly looked over Phil for a joke of a basketball mind and as a man in Dantoni. I hate that I have to root for the negative but if it puts the delusional crew out there back in check its well worth it. You know the only thing better than knowing you were right? Knowing most others were wrong and you were right. Sucks to watch but I knew the minute we hired Mike that we were finished and deep down inside the team did too because all the guy ever does in the end is lose....

I attended quite a few games last season including a couple of playoff games & didn't have a problem dropping money on the Lakers. This season I have not gone to a single game, feels like it will be a waste of $$$ now, & maybe won't even have a chance to look at tickets for the playoffs :man10:

Wrong f***ing thread.

Sorry there were fans in the world that had FAITH IN THE TEAM. Sorry that upset you.

Now take your problems to the WMC thread. Any other post following the same whining pattern will be deleted.

^Agreed. Don't really have expectations tonight; just going to see how it plays out tonight and go from there. Addtionally, it's also a chance to evaluate the roster and see what we have or lack thereof; somebody may surprise us just like Jordan Hill did last year...

Truth....I'll take it a step further. One possession at a time. Defense specifically.

1.) Trade Pau + scraps for an athletic wing defender/shooter and stretch 4

2.) Sign Delonte

3.) Build some chemistry

4.) Sneak into the playoffs as the 6-8 seed

5.) Shock the world

Actually, I'll add one more optimistic thing I saw in tonight's game. And forgive me if this has happened before but I just don't recall it.

I REALLY liked seeing Nash huddle the team together when you could tell momentum was switching. He got all the guys together, Kobe got in there, and he was leading/inspiring/whatever.

Remember the last guard to do that? Derek Fisher. We need that kind of thing. Kobe never huddles the guys up and that sort of thing. I really liked seeing that.

i saw some good defensive rotations in the first half, which marks the first time this year. so that's good! it means it's possible!
