It was going to be hard enough to build chemistry without injuries and with the same coach all season long. We got neither of those things and now our team just looks like guys in a gym playing together.
I hate it.
Whoa whoa whoa, where did that come from, especially from the guy that runs the optimism thread?
I'm with you though, I really do not like this team very much. Outside of Kobe there aren't a lot of mentally tough guys on the roster, and even Kobe is having his troubles with turnovers still, and streaky shooting.
My complaints, WAYYYYYY too many freakin 3's, this is not the formula for a championship. Also, zone defense, is it THAT hard to figure out? We have been looking for the Lakers to not be stunned and confounded by a zone defense since freaking Shaq was still here and teams would throw it at us. You'd think after almost a decade and a handful of coaches we could figure it out quicker.
