Al Jefferson is gonna eat Pau for breakfast tomorrow..... I hope the Bobcats send us off to a 30 point blow-out... we need every controversy we can get so we can change the culture of this garbage product we have out there.

Hahaha, maybe you should realize that I'm hoping for what's best for the Lakers....... I bet I can find posts you create and post something different... everyone has a different thought every week... depends on what direction the team is going... you my friend need to relax.

You are the only one that changes his opinion on a daily basis. And the direction of the team is exactly the same.

Yeah you do. You annoy the crap out of people with nonsense every day. Nothing of any substance. People tell you but it's just a big joke with you. How's that?

At the end of the day, I just want Antoni GONE for funk sake. The dude's never even been to the FINALS...Mike Brown AT LEAST got to the FINALS, and he got fired WAY faster than this schmendrick with a dead animal on his head.

Look, who knows which coach we should get, but honestly at this point any professional basketball coach should be an improvement...not because we'll win more games (we probably won't) but SIMPLY because we will at least be moving in the right direction, even if that direction is firing the next coach or two (or 300) to get to the right coach.

Honestly, Rambis could take over for the rest of this season, with Phil giving him pointers, and use the time as an audition for the job next year. I would also LOVE to see George Karl, Jerry Sloan, Lionel Hollins, or Jeff Van Gundy coach this team.

There are TONS of good coaches...coaches WHO HAVE BEEN AS FAR (Hollins) OR FURTHER (JVG, Sloan, Karl) than Antoni, who coach BOTH SIDES OF THE BALL. This has gotten ridiculously horrible.

Pringles must GO!!! :bang: :mad1: :disagree: :man2:
The End is nigh. Time for a total Cut and Shuffle. Kobe contract was a mistake...time to avoid making more. The future is here, whether we want it to be or not. An era is over, but for the death rattle, and it's time for the cycle to begin anew. Growth and change are scary and painful, but alas...nothing worth achieving comes easily.

Tonight: 110 points, shooting @ a 52% clip.

My "sea of goblin" theory holds, true... the Lakers let a team that averages 92PPG to score 110... we are horribly bad, and some people thought this was gonna be a win? LOL

Even back in the recent championship years I can remember stretches when it seemed like the team just couldn't defend and it was painful to watch because you just always want to see the team pushing on every play. But ultimately it was fine because they absolutely could get stops when they needed to most of the time and they defended strongly on enough games overall to, well, be the best team in the league for a while.

Watching the team now, it's difficult to put in words. You can't even really call it bad defense anymore, it's worse than that. It's like the parody movie version of defense (like a 'scary movie' or whatever), and while a couple of players do a decent job on any given possession or otherwise seem to be moving properly and being where they need to be, it's just uncanny how you basically know that the opposing team is going to score on every single possession they have unless they just so happen to miss to the law of averages and/or have an unforced error.

And again, we've seen shades of this in the past few seasons, the Lakers since Pau have never exactly been 'known for' their defense, they just knew how to turn it on and they had the length and versatility to make it work just enough to let their unstoppable offense do the rest. But man... this is just something else entirely. This is almost negative defense. It's almost like teams are capable of scoring faster and more assuredly than they would playing a 5 v 0 drill, and that's the overall outlook. Heaven help us if we are ever in a close game and need a stop. When was the last time that even happened?

--

The only reprieve is that for as much as of a bummer as it is to see the Lakers being this bad, I have a hard time hating any of the players. They are all likable enough, they all give effort and can put on a show. But from a talent standpoint you almost feel like we'd be better off with the D-fenders.

LAL allowed 100+ pts in14 straight games,lost by 40 floppers, losses to crap like bobcats, utah, orlando, cleveland, 3 series of 6 consecutive losses, lost 18 of last 21...This is some scary [Swearing is not permitted at Clublakers. You must edit this post prior to submitting.]. Worst then 93/94 and 2004/05...No defensive game. No penetration, No post game. No rebounds on D or O. 3s and jumpers. With young guys like Farmar, Young, Meeks, Henry, Wesley Johnson we are at the bottom of the league in steals...
Anybody seriously believe we make some trades and Kobe, Farmar and the rest come back and we gonna win under this coach?

Most of us are concerned with how many ping pong balls we'll get and that's fine and well. What's sickening is the way we are losing games and "teaching" our young players to develop a flawed design.

When Rudy T stepped down and Hamblen stepped in, we lost, but at least we laid down the foundation of the triangle. This right here, makes it okay for us to shoot 25+ attempts from the field...its okay that our guard dominant play on offense supersedes their liabilities on defense.

There is nothing...I repeat nothing...good coming out of this other than draft positioning. We aren't developing a winning identity...we aren't developing our young players properly...what we are doing is accepting a loser's mentality.

Do people expect the Lakers to be active at the trade deadline or will they let the team play out the year?

At this point I don't think you can blame injuries and personnel for this level of bad play. We've all seen teams loose their best player or maybe suffer injuries to multiple players and they still maintain a decent level of play especially on the defensive end. Individually our players may be far from defensive specialists, but as a team they can take pride in not letting teams put up big numbers against them. That is not what we're seeing from this team. Yes i know, we have half our key guys on the injured list, but that is no excuse to not play defense. There is no excuse for allowing easy buckets right at the rim. I don't know what MDA was preaching when they were practicing defense or what Rambis is there for, but it is not working. Honestly, I don't see how the front office is still pleased with what MDA is doing, unless their intention is to tank, then MDA is working things to perfection. But if they're looking for something to build on for the future, then he is taking this team in the absolute wrong direction.

Um...D'Antoni had (In their PRIMES) Steve Nash, Amare Stoudamire, Shawn Marion, Joe Johnson, Leandro Barbosa, Boris Diaw and Quentin Richardson. They also had Bo Outlaw and Jim Jackson as bit role players. That team is EXTREMELY talented, and he couldn't get them to the finals.

Mike Brown had a young LeBron, who was literally HALF the player he is now, and a bunch of decent former all stars well past their prime, and he still got them to the Finals. Mike also did a decent job getting the Lakers to the second round of the playoffs, and we ALMOST beat the Thunder. HUGE difference between him and Antoni. Pringles is literally a JOKE at this point. Our roster is NOT THIS BAD.
The End is nigh. Time for a total Cut and Shuffle. Kobe contract was a mistake...time to avoid making more. The future is here, whether we want it to be or not. An era is over, but for the death rattle, and it's time for the cycle to begin anew. Growth and change are scary and painful, but alas...nothing worth achieving comes easily.
