Thats what Im saying. MWP is not supposed to be your 3rd or 2nd best player. IT should be Dwight or Pau or Nash those guys have talent that are supposed to impact multiple areas of the game in a high level and they haven't been able to. This MWP run wont last. HEs doing well on offense but hes been just as bad as Kobe and Nash on defense

Pretty simple the Lakers are a three man team.

Kobe has been great, Nash has been solid but hurt frequently, and Dwight is nowhere near 100 percent.

I think Peace D has been bad on occasions, he too gets lost on his man, the only type he can defend are other slow mathodical players that try to out muscle him. But anytime he defends players that move w/o the ball he gets lost and its obvious he can't stay in front of quick players either but really thats not his fault, the opposing teams are just purposely drawing switches and forcing him to defend the quicker guys.

What's happening to this team is what we all hoped what would happen to the Miami Heat in the past 2 years
There are two teams that play in the Staples Center:
the LA Lakers and NBA Clippers.

I don't get what you're trying to prove here. Clearly I stated World Peace has been our third best player, however his defense has not been very good as I stated. No one else has either. He's very slow which is why he was moved to power forward, but now he's moved back. In short his offense is good, his defense has not.

Nash, Kobe, Dwight, Hill. Everyone else can go as far as I'm concerned. Metta's been great this year, but he's still inconsistent and he's not the best fit. I'm not advocating getting rid of him for no reason, but if we can throw him into a Pau trade, I think MWP actually has enough value now to get us a much better haul than we could get from just Pau alone. He's far from the main problem, and again, I've been a pretty big fan of Metta's play all season long. But he's one of the few assets we have that other teams might actually want.

We need a trade more than ever for some bench depth. This is unreal. Nash/Kobe/D12 can carry the starters, we need something off the balance now, since we lost our best bench player.

You know what really sucks about these injuries, is that it's going to be his 'out' for the poor decision to bring in MDA.

WMC: despite playing solid defense on Durant, the dude is just absolutely murdering us. Westbrook is also killing Kobe so far.

Postby Forward Three on Fri Jan 11, 2013 10:59 pm

Other than the stretch of the first quarter when LAL actually showed a little effort on defense, this was easily one of the worst games of basketball I have ever seen a team play. Ice cold shooting from everywhere, absolutely no defense at all for large stretches of time, allowing layups all day long, and on the few occasions they actually defended a little they'd still allow an easy basket.

The way this tea, is playing, I honestly do not see them winning another game for a very long time.

Pretty much at this point the only silver lining is that history will remember the injuries and 'excuse' this year in the long run, but we know it's been more than that.

Lakers are done for the season, I just hope that they take this hard and use it to fuel heir practices and their workouts and come back as an actual professional basketball team next year.

Really didn't expect a lot from this game especially when we gave SAS such a run. OKC wasn't going to come in not trying to destroy us.

The season starts next game.... Energy = wins
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.

Glad I decided to study instead of watch, this one looked brutal. Honestly was expecting a closer game given the circumstances, but they legitimately look like a Bobcats/Kings type of team where you just expect them to lose every game.

This is just depressing and there's nothing we can do to stop the bleeding other than trading Dwight :man5:
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.

I think the worse part about all of this, is that we don't get draft picks out of this horrible season.
