We've missed the playoffs once since I started watching the Lakers in '93, we've won 5 titles in that time, some teams have never won one, some teams make the playoffs a handful of times in that 20 years. I know this sucks, but it has to happen to every team, it wasn't for lack of trying with the roster, but yeah IMO the coaching hires were horrible. What we have to look forward to now is seeing where we go from here, what they do to get better, whether that's reloading yet again, or rebuilding in some way. I look forward to being great again at some point, because with the Lakers that's almost a guarantee, whereas some teams never know if they will be good, ever.
With Jim Buss leading things, i no longer have confidence that we will be great. He should not be making basketball related decisions. Sure, in the past we had West and Kupchak but now?
Wait a minute. You thought before the season started that we would suck? BS.
Nope. But i was always cautious. Never guaranteeing anything. Ask weezy. I said on paper we looked good but games aren't played on paper. We had age issues. We had lack of athleticism issues. I was just cautious.
