I'm so dissapointed in kobe. Never thought i'd see the day where he and carmelo switched bodies defensively. Until I see otherwise, he truly does only care about the offensive side of the ball. And its heartbreaking to say.

He's bad. But he's not supposed to be guarding Nelson, Afflalo, AND Redick.

I'm willing to bet the games we look good in and win, the starters Kobe/D12/MWP aren't playing heavy minutes, the bench was mixed in with the starters and we played with some energy.

Well.... what I'm seeing isn't fixable by Nash.... that much is a given.... Someone needs to be sacrificed and my guess is that it will be Pau....

The defensive collapse is the entire team and led by the Coach that overplayed Kobe and Dwight. Kobe is barely making it over half court on defense out there....

That's too many minutes and lack of flow.

If people think Kobe's one-on-one takes his teammates out of it, what does not being able to run offense and having to watch Dwight brick FTs do to the team?

Acceptance is the first step folks.

Sometimes you're wrong. This isn't a video game.


Not in this case. If I were, then this performance shouldn't upset anyone. I mean, if practice is truly a valid reason then this shouldn't be a surprise at all. Yet, it seems like people are dumbfounded....

I know it's not a video game, but its also not the game called grasping at straws for an explanation other than the actual one!

No one is grasping for straws. You're being ridiculous. And you clearly don't know how to evaluate explanations and causal claims.


Really? Then explain to me why everyone in here is upset and surprised. Because if the lack of practice was clearly the root cause, then no one should be upset given the lack of practice.

I'm not sure why you would say I'm being ridiculous. All I said was that saying we're losing against the brand new rebuilding Magic team with a brand new coach led in scoring by Glen freaking Davis is in large part due to a lack of practice is just an excuse.

We should be able to own these guys practice or not. And we are getting borderline blown out. We're talking about practice?

You can't go through the season and grind out wins playing your starters the whole game, we have a bench, it needs to be used or we are going to look like the same old tired team the last 2 seasons come playoff time.

No he's been doing this all game. I watch him specifically most of the time. EVERY SINGLE SCREEN he either gives up, or switches. And I think this is a bad example to be setting for the team. If he's tired, then he needs to REST!!! Stop trying to play all the time and be tired cause he's only going to hurt us defensively.

The pick and roll is a mystery to our team.... doesn't matter who is playing center.. it could be Bill Russell and we'd give layup up after layup.....

D'Antoni should go FU*K HIMSELF!!!

ONLY A RETARDED DOUCHE WOULD KEEP DWOGHT FLOPARD LATE IN THE GAME WHEN PAU IS SITTING IN THE BENCH!!!

SERIOUSLY, HOW STUPID CAN A COACH BE?

JUST SIT DWIGHT THE FLOPPER AND PUT PAU IN AS A CENTER.

PAU WILL PROVIDE POINTS AND ALLOW THE TEAM TO PLAY.

TO HELL WITH ALL THE THCIK-SKULLED COACHES THAT THE BOARD INSIST IN PUTTING IN CHARGE.

I'm starting to think this is more than just a Nash issue...Kobe/Pau/Dwight have got to beat Nelson/Afflalo/Davis...this is ridiculous, what superstar misses 13+ free throws in a game? Its been like this all season, win a game & lose the next 2...terrible, this won't get fixed with just Nash. This is too much. No intensity, the Heat at least brought it every night when they struggled...

Well, this looks like a typical D'Antoni team. No defense and a game plan that's predicated on hitting a ton of shots. When the offense isn't humming, the energy becomes nil on both ends of the floor. Up and down and up and down. No way a squad run this way wins a title.

After being accustomed to making it to the playoffs every year and having a legit chance at the trophy in light of our offseason, we're sub .500 and losing to the worst team in the league. That's enough to explain upset and shock.

We should be able to own these guys practice or not. And we are getting borderline blown out. We're talking about practice?

Again, this isn't a video game. You don't win consistently without practice.

we need nash . i don t care if anybody says the team lacks heart and despite nashs return the team is bad.no they need a real pg to set up things and this is nash.and here we go again when lakers win everybody jumping for joy and praise them but if they loose all or i have to say many her are say they are done and to bad and such stupid [Swearing is not permitted at Clublakers. You must edit this post prior to submitting.]. yeah i am very disappointed and upset but you have to stick to your team not only when they play good also when they play bad . i don t like that attitude by some fans here to put the lakers to bad when they loose but when lakers win they are all saying how big lakers fans they are. again don t like that attitude . but clearly the worst game of the season in my exey and lakers have to fix alot things in the next couple of days.
