But how quickly everyone will forget that when saying how they got ahead in this game. BS foul calls change games plain and simple. WHat is more interesting is people will say, "OMG OKC plays great defense on us thats why we aren't in the game." When the truth is we are missing wide open shots. The same shots our team gets killed for when we give them up. In the end, bad end to the half but the game isn't over as this team has shown they have fight in them finally.
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.

I may sound like a broken record, but we desperately need a competent 3. Ron isn't going to cut it.

Well I enjoyed the 1st quarter
The Black Mamba and the White Swan
Kobe on talk with Pau about being more aggressive, "it's against his nature, he's always very nice, very white swan, I need him to be black swan"

BS calls do change A game....but when your team is at 15-20 they suck, that should be obvious.

My point being...with or without calls, this team was destined to get destroyed by the Thunder.

I literally hate the direction this franchise is going. I'm worried they're going to turn into the Dallas Cowboys, a once proud organization with a rich history turned into a laughing stock.

Lakers is playing not playing bad D, but so is Thunders, we just couldn't make any shots. 0/11 from the threes and 10 are white open. KD made like 5 threes with 3 guard tight. Why can't Lakers get ray allen lol

I hate Boston, but if I were on national TV I wouldn't be laughing at their misfortunes. F*** you, Simmons.

Exactly, it shows how unprofessional he is. Although that's probably why he got the gig at ESPN in the first place. :man10:

I'm just not really upset anymore. What really hurts and gets to me is when we lose a really close game after rallying all the way back but falling short.

It's safe to say I guess that I'm just used to how we are playing. I'm hoping it will change when Howard gets back but we don't know when that will be because the Lakers training staff doesn't want Howard to come back till he is pain free in that right shoulder, which mean out indefinitely.

Simmons really is a POS. You have Earvin Magic Johnson right next to you, does he laugh at the Celtics?

what I am really a little nervous and scared about is that this team really may need to be broken up (trade Pau and others) but because of all our injuries the Lakers FO will just say the real problem is all these injuries when in reality its the players that don't mesh well. We could have the same team next year because FO just says we got unlucky with injuries. :scurred:
