“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.”
Its like Dr. Buss is guarding the Celtic rim this second half. Nothings dropping

You understand me correctly if you understood that I don't believe this team, as currently constructed and healthy or otherwise, is ELITE. And by elite I mean widely regarded as a top 2 or 3 team in the league if not better.
Agree about the injuries. However, it is my opinion that the injuries are simply exacerbating the real problem which is, that we aren't inherently elite.
Steve Blake has been nice, but let's not go overboard here and suggest he's been the reason. What difference did you see him make in the Portland and Charlotte victories?

The fact that we were ever 8 games under .500 made it certain I would never find happiness or positive thoughts during this season. We are a garbage team having to scratch and claw for an 8 seed and some of you are in here rejoicing as if we've done something to clap about. We make the playoffs if the other teams ahead of us collapse, if/when that happens there will be those of you celebrating when what it should be looked at as is how the mighty have fallen.
Pre season if I would've said we would have to fight for the 8 seed you all would scoff and consider the season a failure if that were the case too. But no we all have to keep our fan blinders on and act like there is something to celebrate when there is ZERO to celebrate about. We doomed ourselves with an awful start and we should have to pay the price for it by sitting out the spring and having our players reflect on just how terrible they were. However lucky for us Utah and Golden State aren't good either and will probably lose 35 games or so like average teams do and we'll slip in for a 1st round knock out. WOW I CAN'T WAIT
