WMC 12/13: Mercy kill. (0-4)

Re: WMC 12/13: Mercy kill us, please? (0-3)

We basically didn't guard Duncan on the perimeter, and I'm pretty sure he made most of his points from midrange. He had a few nice moves inside, but I don't think he missed a single midrange jumper.

Worst home playoff loss! :man10: :bang:
Last 3 playoffs appearances:0-4,1-4, and now likely a 0-4 again! Something has to change!

We are in for a long period of mediocrity with such a poor vision from our management ...and I'm not even talking about how pathetic our latest 2 choices of head coaches have been


Mitch has had YEARS to solve the age and athleticism problem and he hasn't done anything about it. He gets so much praise for getting Dwight but people ignore all the horrible decisions this front office has made that have the Lakers in the position they are in now.


Can't really blame Mitch - he was just giving the people what they wanted, i.e., immediate gratification.
As Mitch put it, the thinking was that we needed to "win now," i.e., before Kobe's window closed, etc.

Pau's D was horrendous but it was mainly Duncan being a force of nature. at one point he was 10/11 for the game and about half of his shot were long mid-range jumpers.

Good looking stats in a blowout don't mean ish ...

I have really nocited mediocrity seems to become accepted in Lakersland ... from management to medias .

I understand there is the reality of being capped out for next season ( + no draft picks ) but I can't say I like this "feeling" which seems to float around our organization ... might be just my impressions though

Lol Morris is trash, if we're relying on this guy to play big minutes next season (as in anything more than garbage time) that means we're lottery bound from game 1.

^^ This is creeping into my mind as well. Started with the Mike Brown hiring, honestly, and then Jim Buss's endorsement of him this season, saying he wasn't worried until he lost 15 in a row or something.

Feeling continued with the D' Antoni hire and the passing on Phil, Jerry Sloan and McMillan.

Feeling continued with the PR aftermath following that hire: Mitch telling the Lakers fan that the FO doesn't care what they want and think is best.

Feeling continued with not using the Jordan Hill injury exception to pick up a player who could help us despite a ton of injuries going around this season.

Feeling continues now with the FO statements that they will stand pat with this current roster and the coach.

I'm concerned in other words.

Who knows though, maybe the FO is currently bluffing?

Emplay has lost his damn mind. Morris had 2 years in college and now 2 years in the NBA and he's shown minimal improvement, he is what is he, and he is NOT a keeper. We could find a better 3rd string pg by throwing a dart at a list of free agents taped to the wall.

I hope he made that tweet after a few barley pops and will retract it in a fit of sobriety any minute......

Or he simply misspelled the name Goudlelock as M-O-R-R-I-S. That happens, those are very similar names.

In West, anyone will support Clippers ? Since OKC lost Westbrook, I don't think they are a threat now.

Here's a WMC: Rotoworld ran the headline "Parker destroys Lakers"...
Tony Parker breezed past the Lakers' make-shift starting backcourt for 23 points, three rebounds, four assists, two steals and zero turnovers on 9-of-16 shooting in just 26 minutes of Sunday's 103-82 blowout win over the Lakers to complete the first-round sweep.


Is that "destroying" a team? Oh, F*** the Clippers.
