I think we'll still win, but it's gonna be a 7 game series now.

many factors here

1. he has not getting calls all season long and that definitely plays a role on him not driving to the paint more.
2. maybe he is wearing down after last year's long playoff run, the olympics and this season.
3. too much confidence in his jump shots.

If we lose to the Rockets this year, we should beg him to comeback. Thats the only way we could win a title.

Bynum's thinking is scoring = superstar. All i want him to do is sustain yao to some sort that he won't be the guy to beat us. can you at least do that bynum.

I understand you are giving logical reasons to why teh Lakers are playing bad but I think you need to understand that the lakers just lost and people dont want to read posts that are so utterly negative. Believe me, the board isnt mentally handicapped. We know who lost, we know why they lost, we know we are in a 0-1 hole. We dont need constant reminders and more negative posts from fellow "fans." Im not saying give me a pile of [Swearing is not permitted at Clublakers. You must edit this post prior to submitting.] with sprinkles on top and call it ice cream but what I am saying is that people will jump on you at every chance they get if you keep up with the negative attitude.

That has NOTHING to do with the Lakers at all.

amen!!! bynum has the physical presence to at least stand up with yao but he's not been taught properly. kareem was a finesse center with a sky hook, look at bynum now, settling for free throw line jump shots. pathetic, we need a INSIDE enforcer and shaq wuold've been perfect for us.

We'll be back. We'll try again next year. Mitch gets to tinker the lineup.

Probably more fun to see what he does to improve the team.

I'm afraid the answer is no. He hasn't been able to shut down anybody this entire season, and that's all we've asked of him. The jury's out. He's soft.

Sorry. 5th one. Lakers won.

6th one? Lakers lost.


Phil Jackson is 6-8 when his team loses game 1...


LA is not in the drivers seat anymore in these playoffs. That's all. No biggie.

rick adellman totally out coached phillips tonite. everytime when we made a run in the 2nd half and he'd called timeouts and immediately the Rox responded every single time. phillips just sat there and made fun of craig sagger's suit. pathetic.

Look at your box score and see where it was played. "EnergySolutions Arena"

Cmon man, it's not that hard to look it up. THe last game wasn't played on 4/25. It was played on 4/28.

The comments in this thread are pathetic. I don't care what anyone says some of you are crucifying L.A. for this game saying "What kind of chapionship team is this" well what kind of fans are you guys. As much as sime of you preach about how you're so dedicated to the team and tradtonal and all of that additional b.s. then SHOW IT! Stop panicing like this was a game 7.

Our star player was sick

Andrew played the best he could.

Overall our entire team played out of sync it happens, get over and move on we have another game wednsday it's not the end of the world. I'm sure if we end up winning the series all of this panic will disappear *smh*

If you're so concerned about keeping this on the Lakers, why did you write a post "3 more for Houston"?

I don't see how that's at ALL related to the Lakers, especially from someone so concerned about keeping the thread about the Lakers.

5th one? Lakers win in San Antonio

6th one? Lakers LOSE against San Antonio

Phil is 6-8 when his teams lose Game 1.

Lakers are just not in the drivers seat in this one anymore. That's all. Game 2 is meaningless for Houston.
