WMC 13/14: CL went down yet Coach D remains! ugh

WMC 13/14: CL went down yet Coach D remains! ugh

Postby puffyusaf#2 on Thu Sep 12, 2013 10:49 am

Here we are again Lakers faithful. The draft has been done, the summer has passed and the players are making their way to the Lakers facilities to get “some work in.” Last season saw the Lakers swing for the fences and bring in the 12 coward of the world. Thankfully we gave that disease to the beard in Houston on a drunken night of consensual “screw you guys take our diva.” We saw injury after injury. We saw fans going at each other over the coach, the city, the leadership, the direction of the team, the lack of direction of the team. Most importantly, we saw Kobe go down after basically running himself to death to get the team and the diva into the playoffs. Without the real leader of the team the Lakers went weakly out of the playoffs. NOW……………………….. we are here again and the WMC thread is back!
The rules: Whine, Moan and Complain. Want to hate on the team, a player, a play, a game then this is the place for you. Are you the Debbie downer, the dark cloud in your friends life or just a force of nature that sucks the life/joy out of those around you? This is the thread for you. Are you sometimes just emotional and want to scream “F-You you fricken 7 foot non-free throw shooting turn over prone va jay jay” then this thread is for you. You can complain all you want but, here’s the catch, others can respond to your rationally irrational post.
So let the WMC’ing begin……………………………. 2013/2014 is upon us.

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.

They said on Mason & Ireland the other day that a "source" leaked that no one in the laker organization brass believes they can get Lebron in 2014/15, which would put them in the same category as most sane laker fans.

So this is my preemptive WMC on delusional laker fans talking about "Lebron Next Year!" all 2013/14.

I think more people are starting to come to this realization. I've noticed the trend of.....

Initially - 2014 FA is the year the Lakers can reload with ____,_____,____.

Now - 2014 FA should be the year IF so and so become available, otherwise 2015 FA is the more likely scenario for the Lakers.

Who the hell is this so called "source"? The Lakers are definitely in contention for Lebron. Take a look at the cap flexibility next offseason. You can't say that Lebron and his camp aren't even considering it.

I know, I've been counting down the days in my head since middle of August.

My real first WMC is that I know everyone is talking about how much we'll suck on defense but I'm now starting to worry about our rebounding. I sure hope we can still maintain our great team rebounding ranking that we've had the last couple of years.

I'm just not as confident in that area thus far.

We are a small team, no question about it. Pau, Kaman, Hill, Kelly, Sacre only guys 6'10 or bigger, all injury prone except Sacre. That's what you get with an 'Antoni team tho, 4 bigs or so, and a crapload of guys 6'6 to 6'9.

As long as Gasol and Hill are on the floor, our overall rebounding numbers should be fine. Now that doesn't mean Gasol will finally start boxing out or that the two of them will be healthy all season.

But when they ARE we should rebound just fine. :man9:

Also, I'm pretty sure we're going to be trying to have our SFs rebounding too. When the smaller guys get the ball, they are more easily able to ignite the fast break. I see us having 3 guys crash at all times with 2 back to defend on offensive boards and 3 crashing with two streaking on defensive boards.
