This looks highly-unlikely given the injuries they just suffered. It's not gonna help chemistry or performance at all. I think the Lakers look lottery bound this year. PEACE.

80% the Lakers miss the playoffs.

Lakers are 0-2 vs Utah, 1-2 vs Houston, 1-2 vs Denver

Overall, they're 9-14 against the West.

No we don't. I am sure most of us don't. It's not being a hater but the Lakers just being handed talent and being flooded with money, and getting everything easy takes away a lot from the NBA.

I like that the Lakers are struggling because it means that basketball is as much about making strategic moves and finding the right chemistry of players and coaches than it is about spending the most money, getting ridiculously unfair trades (see Gasol/Kwame, Gasol/CP3), being the destination of choice for douche bag stars (Howard), and stars looking to team up in their twilight years in Hollywood (Nash, Payton, Malone, Richmond).

Optimistic =/= realistic

But if you wanna hurt yourself more by being shocked in the end then that's on you

I feel that we can, but we have to get our $%!# together and fast. Nash, Bryant, MWP and Jamison( if he can get more time than 24 minutes). We got to nail our open shots, but most of all our defense has got to be better. Howard and Hill I'm hoping I'm wrong about this, but I feel they will be down for like two weeks.

Gasol I'm not so sure how long will he be out but if he can come back by the OKC game then I think we can regroup. Gasol back in the post with Howard and Hill down would be good for him. It will allow him to command the ball down low, where he needs to be(MDA I'm talking to you).

SF:Bryant/Clark
PF:Jamison/MWP
C:Gasol/Sacre
SG:Morris/Meeks
PG:Nash/Duhon

So being a successfully run business over the course of many decades means the Lakers should be on the same level as go nowhere/incompetently managed/small market team that would rather cut good players as soon as they want money and accumulate money from revenue sharing?

You sound really salty bro. So in your mind, any losing season for the lakers is karmic payback for being a destination most players would like to play for? Because let's get real here, if players weren't able to hold teams hostage, most of these deals wouldn't happen.

And stars in their twilight all seemingly had one thing in common - desire to take a paycut to play for the best team available at the time, outside of Richmond.

You are being a Laker hater, and you're doing a terrible job of hiding it. You can try to present it however you like, but you're bitter about a sports team having (presumably) more success than whoever it is you follow. That's petty behavior.

Anyways back to the Lakers. Yes most likely they would be 1 and done because of Pringles. The man is an idiot with a capital idiot. But its better than being in the lottery.


celtics have huge chances to make it to the finals.
lakers wont even make the playoffs imo
however bradley isnt a rook, and will probably be first team all-def this year

LOL the celtics with a way worse SRS, an offense as bad as our defense, and just 2 more wins have huge chances to make it to the finals, but the lakers wont make the playoffs. you have a lot more to worry about than the lakers who at least have injuries as an excuse, the celtics entire roster has been healthy for the most part outside of bradley.

LOL. Celtics are the 8th seed in the East. You're talking about a "huge" chance of making the finals? Are you on drugs?
