They gave this to us and we couldn't close.. We're first round fodder. Paul was useless. MWP was useless. Meeks was garbage.

We have no system. We really need to figure out if we're a Kobe team or if we have more to stay competitive.

No moral victories here. The clips are the better team.

Put the Clips in the half court and against a team that can game plan for them for a 7 game series and you'll see what I mean.


clips have injuries, no 6th man of year candidate in crawford, and are coming off a 2 game losing streak...

im not sure it matters much what some other team can do to them.

Offense - 102 points 46FG%

Defense - 107 points 50FG% for the Clips

But I'm sure we're going to hear about "Kobe Ball" in the WMC thread more than we're going to hear about our defense.

I think we can all agree that we lost this game not because of one particular player, but because of our team defense. Everyone had a decent to great game, especially kobe and dwight. If we only defended better all game like we did when we were trying to dig ourselves out of the hole down the stretch, we would've been in a much better position. This will be the main issue for us all year. Something needs to be done to fix it.

Meeks and Barnes are streak shooters..... one streaked and one didn't. Dwight is never going to be an even "decent" free throw shooter....

We lost this game in the early second quarter when we had a drought and gave the mentally weak Clips some confidence..... when we hit a few shots...got a stop or two they began to fold...

40% of the season over. Clips are up TEN GAMES on the Lakers. Wow.

Ron and Gasol didn't do squat.

What does Mitch need to see? Trade Gasol to Minny and get Peck, D. Will, and Trade Ridenour to Wiz for Ariza.

Anything is better than Gasol's garbage.

Will they even make the playoffs?

dude who cares where they are or who they are, we suck PERIOD! and Clipps didn't come off no 16 game win streak, they were on a 2 gm losing streak and looked so medicore during those 2 gms and as soon as they face us they look like offensive juggernauts until late in the 4th.

This game it wasnt bad at all. Only reason you will hear about it in wmc is because you will see people making sarcastic remarks about how playing team ball causes losses or something rather than realizing we played a better team.

we have to be on, on all cylinders to have a chance on them

Its so sad that our defense is the single most important issue for us, yet I could bet my whole life savings that d'antoni still does more offensive coaching in practice. I just don't think we'll ever be as good as we need to defensively because d'antoni just doesn't put as much emphasis on it as he does offense. And that trickles down to the players.

doesn't matter in the end though right? if kobe enthusiasts are right...we're still losing. if kobe critics are right...we're still losing. just a giant circlejerk of sad.

Yes it was. Especially in transition.

Also, the Clips are averaging 47.4FG% coming into tonights game. We gave up 50FG%. 3 points above their average. And they didn't even have Jamaal Crawford tonight. With guys like Metta, Kobe, and D12, we shouldn't be this bad defensively.

Pau's game is unforgivable... Metta 2 points?!?... Pau 2 points?!?... and we're still lucky to be in it because of Kobe! Get rid of Pau immediately for some speed and youth!

Mega World Knuckles went 1-6 and cost your team another game because he's nuts.

You guys have enough talent that you no longer need to play wannabe thug ball.

It's time for the Lakers to awaken from their bully mentality, and get some regular basketball players at the wing that just want to win. Players that aren't out there just waiting for someone to pick on and beat up.

Just some advice, don't take it personal.

Clippers are not real contenders though. I never thought of them as contenders. If they face the OKC or Spurs they will lose 100% in a series. Popovich will have a field day toying with them like he did last year(Spurs swept Clippers with ease last year).
