I believe we will, I'm just not absolutely certain of it like I always have been, my whole life it's just been a matter of when not if. With Jerry Buss reportedly not having too much longer to live, I honestly don't know if the future will be the same for us and we can just expect to always get back on top and expect greatness, uncertain times if you ask me, sad and scary


I have the same fears ... we're just due to a bad stretch as an organization ... every team has had long ones except the Lakers ... plus the part of luck you always need to succeed isn't there for 2 years ...

My wild guess is this bad stretch is coming now and that the Lakers will be sold within the next ten years

Right now they are good, but what has it gotten them, last season 2nd round exit, this season, MAYBE WCF, but probably still the Spurs and Thunder will be there so yet another 2nd round exit. Congrats to the Clippers for climbing out of the cellar for a few seasons, but when it all ends again, when Blake leaves, or CP3 leaves or blows out his knee yet again, or they both leave to go and actually try and finish the job somewhere, the Clippers will suck again. They will have won no championships in the meantime and will be kings over us in what sense, a few Pacific Division titles? Please, until they win some trophies they'll never be kings of anything, that's what LA is all about, 2nd round exits are special for the Clippers I guess, but they're a failed season for the Lakers. They're better than us now, no question, but those seriously saying it's their town now because of a season and a half of this, you need to really think about what you're saying, look at our histories, come to your senses and laugh. The Heat, Thunder, and maybe some unknown team, hopefully us retooled, will continue to battle it out for championships the next few seasons, while the Clippers never make it, then they will fall off again, because that is the way of the world.


I don't see too many decent seasons in the Lakers future. Our great owner is near his end and his son will run the franchise into the ground. It's going to get ugly for us fans for quite a long time. Actually I believe the people of LA will rally around whomever is the best, especially if it is for an extended period of time. It's sad. They don't seem to have much conviction, just follow whomever is winning and is flashy.

Dwight is seriously useless ... I mean he is half the player he was ... he fumbels terrible ... MWP is disaster to happen, I am terrified whenever he handles the ball ...

anyways last five minutes of the second quarter - refs were on a coke or something - what a terrible calls ...

but still they are better then we are - better movement in general ...

the 2nd unit brought us back and it only took the starters 2 minutes to destroy the momentum from down 3 to down 12. That was embarrassing but like KB24 said, everybody has been laughing at this team all season long this one probably help them poop their pants from laughter :man10:

Ok dude that's weird and it's freaking me out!


Sorry It's just very hard to accept the fact that Clippers > Lakers and they are ruling LA town now.


Haha, your statement was entirely true! Sorry, I should have clarified. What was tripping me out was at the time was that I had the gameday thread open and Lakers Discussion and you posted exactly the same thing verbatim in both threads so I thought for a second there was something wrong with my laptop. Haha.

^^ I miss Pau a lot more.

Anyway, it's one game. Let's not read too much into this and let's hope we just gather ourselves and refocus on getting wins and getting into the playoffs. These guys should not get too high or too low about these games. It's a numbers thing at this point. Just win 2 out of every 3. Get to the playoffs then worry about the details later.

That was a loss. Now win the next two home games. Keep it real simple.

Exactly. The Clipps punked us, but they couldn't miss last night, especially Zchauncey. It's frustrating, because they just need direction, something MDA can't give.

I've known this for awhile. We're not a very good basketball team. I've resolved myself earlier in the season to not get as emotionally invested. We have too many glaring holes in the roster. I've rooted & wanted the best but this is just not our year.

This will really give us a chance to evaluate the roster this summer and start making some much needed changes...

Man this season is hands down the worst one in the 30 years of me watching Lakers basketball.

At the very least, 04-05 and pre-Pau years, I was vastly entertained by the Kobeshow.

This season is without question the worst I've ever experienced. It's one thing to suck when people expect you to, but it's another to be a potential lottery team when people expected you to contend for a championship. This team will be laughed at for many more years to come if they don't make the playoffs.

easily the worst season in recent memory. even the smush/kwame years didn't feel this bad, but that's because expectations were nowhere near the same. hell, they made the playoffs at least.

His post moves, his lack of turnovers. We would have NOT our last championship without him. What's wrong with missing him? He's a superior center than Dwight and it's so obvious. Dwight has no skill in the post and he is so predictable. I've seen damn near every game this year and Dwight is god awful when it comes to fundamentals of being a center. If he knew how to keep the ball above his head on rebounds he wouldn't have the torn labrum he's nursing right now. I miss Bynum's fundamentally sound game. I know he's injured but i appreciate what he gave us while he was here.

so would that still be your sentiment if you were seeing Bynum court side in a suit right now? I bet it be more like you cursing mgmt./Jim for not having taken advantage of the situation and traded him when we had the chance :bang: and you think Bynum would be giving his all for this type of offense considering how much better of a post player he was/is then Howard? :freak2:

Easily the most disappointing season in our franchise's history.

Easily my least favorite season ever.

I don't even really care about these games anymore to save myself from going mad.

pretty much why i stopped watching the games... i still support them... when someone speaks bad about the lakers i talk back... but watching the games just gets me so angry... this is easily the worst season ever for the lakers in my opinion... just cuz of expectations and being let down so badly

Well when the alternative is seeing Howard not give a crap :bang: ; playing effortless against our most heated rivals :bang: ; getting out rebounded by the worst frontcourt in the league :man10: ; laughing it up during a blow out against the clips :disagree: ; taking shots at kobe through the media while not confronting him face to face :mad1: ; and finally, making nash, one of the best teamates of all time, complain+question his actions :man4: , thus destroying any recently built chemistry , having Bynum in a suit seems like the greener pasture at the moment.

At least Bynum would shut up and not complain about whose team this is during rehab. Howard's play+excuses the last couple of weeks were so gutless/despicable that he'd be better off in similar suit. Throw in all the jabs he threw at the media during that time about kobe and the team and it makes Bynum look like a saint in comparison.

When the lakers traded Bynum for Howard, they traded an immature center who gave inconsistent effort, had health issues, and wasn't worth the max, let alone able to lead the franchise post-kobe, for what they hoped was a center that was the antithesis of all those things.

Instead they got another immature center, who also gives incosistent effort, has health issues (back issue won't make him regain athleticism), still not worth the max (can you gaurantee he regains that athleticism?), can't lead the franchise (attitude issues :man10: ), is poorly skilled ( :man10: at his post game) and to top it off, is a big diva who's stupid enough to try and recreate Shaq and Kobe, the sequel :bang: .
