It's over


Portland and Houston are sucking donkey balls now, even if we played 0.500 basketball we'd be the 8th seed.

I'd put my money on Dallas making the playoffs since Dirk coming back.

Houston won today, they won't lose forever.

They lost like 7 straight before winning against Charlotte. They're not that good.

I agree, but neither are the Lakers. I'd rather see the Jazz get that 8th see, because you can bank on this...it will be an upset in the west this playoffs. One of these high seeds going on vacation early.

Come on lakers :D I'm not a Lakers fan, but as a basketball fan I would love to see a first round playoff between Los Angeles Clippers vs Lakers rather than Clippers vs Portland!

I thought Utah last year could cause some drama in the playoffs.


It's definitely a team that could come up with a major upset.

I want the top 3 to stay the same, Deep I think Utah can force OKC into a long series and come away with the win. Utah has nothing to lose so they can go into OKC and really change the outcome of the Western playoffs. I want that seventh seed, I feel we can beat the Clippers in a seven game series.

Funny thing is with all the wreckage we've caused we're still only 4 games out of 8th. 7th is definitely reachable. Mathematically we're still breathing, but if they don't put together some type of run somebody is going to yank the plug.

The average number of wins for the 7th seed over the past 5 years is 48.

Meaning the Lakers would have to go 31-10 for the remainder of the season, or play .756 ball.

Which is a freaking 'C'... And still seems out of reach.
Just give me back the board, Lance. It was a good board, and I like it.

Things that make absolutely no sense:

Some of the predictions in this thread.
* You can change your wife, you can change your girlfriend but you cannot change your [football] team - Ander Herrera *
* Men lie women lie BUCKETS DNT - Dion Waiters *

Return to Los Angeles Lakers
