This team looks dead. No energy, no emotions, going through the motions. These are the games that come back to screw you at the end of the season.

I actually hope they lose. They will not win anything this year -- so our expectations need to be more reasonable. They cant make a 3. can't get back in transition. and have no bench scorer or facilitator.

maybe Mitch and Jim will be embarrassed enough to take some sort of action. Metta has to go -- really, he is worse that Luke.

It won't matter. We're getting bounced in the PO anyways

Zero movement from this team. Not sure what he was supposed to do.

Lakers just need to focus on how they're going to win this game.

Some fundamentals of post entry passing:

1. If you're playing against a team of shorties...you should throw the passes up high.
2. If you're playing against a team of equal height, you should use the bounce pass.

Yeah, there's our first option.

Pathetic.


First options set screen with less than 5 seconds on the shot clock beyond the 3 point line? Drew's shot hit the rim as the shot clock went off..... The better question is why did Kobe feed a non jump shooting big at the free throw line with 5 seconds on the clock after giving up his dribble.....

2 high pick, one from dallas. lol

No.

The Dallas pick is top 20 protected and they decide when to give it to us.

Wooow. i just can't imagine what will Miami or OKC do to our team....they would kill us. Look like we are back at those days when Kobe need to score 30 to 40 points to even be in a race to win a game. WOW. and you guys are blaming Kobe, what the hell do you expect of him to do??? i really don't understand you, you put the blame on Kob because the rest of the roster don't give a F***k about game!

Yes, 5-10 and leading scorer...get him OUT. There's a difference between making compelling arguments and simply complaining.

As the only player we have that can create on the perimeter, anything besides picking up his dribble would have been nice.

Drew could have made a move to the rim...instead he chose the J because it was easier.

There was plenty of time left when Kobe asked for the screen....

Yeah, go ahead and while you're at it say good bye to Kobe. Stephen A. Smith already predicted he will request a trade this year. That should not come as a surprise to anyone on this list...

I'm not gonna lie, my expectations for this team earlier made me believe we had something to look forward to. Now I don't even know what kind of team this is.

Kobe cannot win. Because if he makes a move and no one moves (as they don't), he'll shoot it...and you (personally but others, too) will complain.

I think we can agree that it was a bad play among many in that forgettable first half....

The whole team looks tired both physically and mentally..... Hopefully Brown can light a fire at half...

We will lose. I hope we lose. Lakers basketball is just not enjoyable to watch these past few games. Even with wins, I'm still left with an unsettled feeling inside.

Why didn't we see Kapono when they zoned us? He has very few uses but that was one of them....
