Steve Blake out, and Nash unlikely to play in Game 3. Really should just hoist the white flag at this point.

I want to update my WMC injury post, but I'm not going to deal with that today. It's just depressing. What a season.

Go with this lineup

PG Artest
SG Sacre
SF Hill
PF Gasol
C Howard

Go big or go home! Lol

All kidding aside I think we know its over now, just try to pump up Gasol's trade value and give the kids a chance we literally have nothing to lose...lets see what Duhon/Morris/Ebanks can do.

I should get an assist for that. It's an intentional pass to oneself, so it's an assist. That way people can't say all I do is shoot.

Clearly Jim Buss is the angel of death and is spreading his diseases among our players, picking them off one by one.

INJURY MONSTER (bug doesn’t cut it)
In the regular season, the Lakers lost 81 games to starters, and 171 overall, with almost every key rotation player missing at least four games:

- Steve Nash: lower left leg fracture (24 games); right hamstring/hip issues (8 games)
- Kobe Bryant: sprained left ankle (2 games); torn left Achilles tendon (2 games)
- Metta World Peace: torn lateral meniscus in left knee (6 games)
- Pau Gasol: tendinitis in both knees (8 games); concussion (5 games); torn plantar fascia in right foot (20 games)
- Dwight Howard: torn labrum in right shoulder (6 games)
- Jordan Hill: left hip injury (53 games)
- Steve Blake: abdominal injury (37 games)

Add in two missed playoff games for Bryant, one for Hill and Jodie Meeks plus the potential for four guards out for Game 3, and things have gone beyond ridiculous. A qualifier is the team’s collective age, making injuries more likely, but even head athletic trainer Gary Vitti said he’s never seen anything like this season from an injury perspective.

For comparison’s sake, here’s how three other Western teams have fared on the injury front from a games missed standpoint:

Lakers: 171 total, 81 starting five
Spurs: 86 total, 50 starting five
Clippers: 86 total, 17 starting five*
Thunder: 12 total, seven starting five

Man! Murphy's law much? This has got to be one o f the worst year any team has experienced as far as injuries. As bad as this year has been, we better have one just as good next season. This is just ridiculous! :bang: :bang: :bang:

Hey the injuries are just an excuse...... We should win all our games without any of our big players. :man8:
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.

Foreals. Why are we "one of the biggest disappointments in NBA history" because our starters have been crippled since the first week of the season and lost the other half of our team throughout the season. The expectations of at least a finals appearance in the summer was assuming we could actually develop a championship model with this roster but the real shame is never even having a chance to turn that into a reality. Injuries cause constant lineup changes, unwanted rotation, and chemistry issues, we all know this. So the disappointment assertions really aren't that fair.

I am no way satisfied with 45 wins and a probable 1st rd exit but i also understand the devastating effects that injuries have had on our success this year, you would have to be blind not to.
Before long, someone recognized Phil Jackson sitting in the front seat, and then the rocks began to fly. Revelers pelted the bus and shook it, mocking the Lakers at their lowest moment.


It was painful,” Lakers forward Pau Gasol(notes) said. “It is a feeling that I want to keep in my mind for every single minute that I’m out there playing them.
