its a long season, like someone said, the thing i dislike most is more Steamer playing... i cant watch that guy.
I think we need some trades, lets hope Ricky comes back soon, and get at full strenght between a month or so, nothing is lost yet.

I dont want to tank.... but yes I want +30minpg for Derrick Williams, just see the guy develop.

If he does well, maybe you can trade him and get a SG.

There's no need to hit the panic button (someone would most likely get injured while doing so, anyway). Obviously this loss is bad but considering how well this team seems to play without Love I think we can weather the storm for a while. Yes, it sucks and I feel really bad for Love but we have some depth at the power forward slot. This also means that Williams gets more playing time and we can evaluate if he can keep up his recent level of play for extended minutes.

It just sucks that this means AK will need to play at least as many minutes for an extended period of time. This can't be good.

This medical staff needs to be seriously evaluated. The amount of injuries we have had the past few years has been pathetic. Didn't Brewer mess up both his knees. Rubio messes up knee. Big Al, knee. Love, hands. Budinger, knee. Howard, knee. Lee, knee. Anyone else I'm missing. We are looking almost as bad as the Blazers.

Hopefully he uses this time to condition instead of sitting on his @ss and doesn't rush back too fast.

Sorry. We got the benefit of a soft schedule to start. This is very bad. This roster isn't weathering a storm like this

THIS. When we played without Klove...We played the 27th softest schedule in the league.

Does this mean you guys trade for a impact player to keep your playoff hopes alive?

Gasol for Kirlenko/Dwill?

LOL. Kirilenko is much better than Gasol.

I dont understand how this can just can continue to happen, it never ends. It's injury after injury after injury, what other team would this ever happen to, why us? It really saddens me.

How about we let the Lakers keep him and let them keep struggling.

Yes, we had a soft schedule at the beginning but they've been hanging with good teams even when Love was playing like a pile of hot doggy poop.

Yup played horrible against the thunder. Our best win of the year. He hasn't been himself but u really think dwill is going to make up those 14 boards a game?

If Gasol was an impact player the Lakers wouldn't be trading him.

No, obviously not and I was aware that we will miss his rebounding the most, just like we did early this season.

However, I wasn't thinking only of the Thunder game. There were several games against good teams we were playing well against at, despite abysmal performances by Love. Look, I'm not hating on Love or anything but I don't think there's a reason to hit the panic button, yet (emphasis on YET).

It's good to be optimistic but this roster is depleted. This 18 and 14 Love is still a difference maker. Not having him for the next 6 weeks against a tough schedule is disastrous
