You know when you post things that are nonsense it doesn't make you look smart it has the opposite effect. You don't have to try so hard.
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.

Last night was indicative of the team needing a player that can create, take command and try to will his team into the game even if he has to shoulder the burden to the consternation of some fans. Oh wait...

I understand we have a terrible 11-14 on our squad, but I still think our starters could have used more rest.

Duhon and Morris are still good shooters.

Morris and Ebanks can play better defense than a tired Nash and Jamison.

Sacre, well, can't say too much. :man11:

Not that we should have put them all in at the same time, but in spots minutes it can be effective to preserve energy. Playing an old Spurs squad 39 mins a game b2b would be suicide for them.

Did some people really believe that we are better off offensively without Kobe? Sick and tired of going over to the Kobe thread nowadays. You'd think you were in another team's forum when you're in that thread.

kobe needs to rest the ankle. the issue last night was minutes management the night before. D'Antoni needs to play more than 7 guys deep. especially when they play 5 games in 9 nights. dude can be so clueless sometimes.

This loss was a direct result of Mike 2 going 7 deep. Our bench is not world beaters but I don't think we have much choice here.

No. I don't think anybody believes that.

I do however, think some people believe that we are better playing as a team, than we are when we are overly dependent on a single player for offense.

There's so much to whine and complain about and the game isn't even over. It'll take too much time, screw it

I just hope EVERYONE on the team watches tape from this 2nd half. All 24 minutes of the suckfest it was.

WMC:
just pathetic. i know we're "re-integrating" kobe and pau but...

WAY too much kobe vs. the world down the stretch...esp with an ankle that's not 100%. show some friggin trust in your guys late in the game. esp when you were doing it so well early...

costly turnover by MWP late with his patented drive-and-bowl-people-over move

ariza with career high 3's made...against us. salt in wound.

That was an incredibly embarrassing second half after a great first half. Embarrassing loss. :mad1:

Worthy's right. That was painful to watch in the second half. Should have played Easy Earl in the second half.

May I ask why we don't play well together? It's not like anyone was outplaying one another.

WMC: Making the playoffs remains in doubt after that horrible second half, and the idea of some miracle run to the championship took a serious blow after the excessive ineptitude displayed tonight.

Also, MDA continues to show why he is not the right coach for this team, after finding a way to waste a crucial timeout with 36 sec left in the 3rd quarter out of pure emotion.

Turnovers. No energy in the 3rd. No sense of urgency. Went away from Dwight for whatever reason. Pau is rusty. No defense. Especially on the perimeter.

I love how they felt they had Dwight to go to late in the game even after Ariza is going crazy from outside and Wall is balling.

Yet we ignore our real version who has only missed once in the entire freaking game and instead rely on the guy that rushed back from a pretty bad looking injury.

Awesome!

still not sure why people are so sure the lakers are holding off utah for the 8 spot. seriously, utah went to OT at SA. the lakers lost at home to one of the worst basketball teams...ever. i'm speechless after that performance. i really thought they couldn't be worse than they had been, but they've proven me wrong again.

Oh well, at least now I can let go of that pipe dream that this team had something special about it and could become elite

No these collection of players are not being played well. I know people hate to read it and say it's old news, and to let it go but Phil Jackson would have this team in position to be playing for the trophy in the finals. Mike D just doesn't know how conduct a team full of players like this. They just aren't fit to play together under this kind of system.
