there shouldnt be. playoffs=cavs, not playoffs=suns. thats it.

lakers 14 point underdogs in vegas to the spurs. i think its just about right.

as for the lakers prospects, the jan schedule looks brutal but march and feb look favorable.

Not if they keep losing.

Ha.

I predict that the Lakers will make the 8th seed and make it all the way to the finals, enduring at least two 7 game series along the way, where they will beat Miami after Dwight gets 100% healthy and the fix their defensive woes and continue to build chemistry...

Wonder if Stern will make that happen? Personally, that would be devastating as a fan of the NBA

so if dwight does elect to have surgery, how long will he be out?...he is getting re-examined next Tuesday i believe. that will determine if they make the playoffs or not.

Well, I don't think that's a very realistic scenario, but from a fan perspective, I think it would be nice to see a team that underachieved and was expected to be great right away get rocked and mocked all throughout the regular season, finish out the season strong and then come together and win against the odds.

I disliked the heat strongly the season they lost to the Mavs. I felt that there was too much 1v1, iso action on the perimeter and I didn't respect them as a team, in terms of chemistry and identity. There identity was 3 great players, and a bunch of decent players.

Fast forward to last year's finals, and even though I was rooting for the Thunder, as a basketball fan I could help but appreciate and respect the way they played. Now when I think of the Heat, I think of a team with an identity. Not just LBJ/Wade/Bosh(although they are obviously vital to the team's success). I feel the same way about the Lakers right now. No identity/chemistry. It would be great to see them develop some.

Rehab after getting surgery for a torn Labia is usually around 3-4 weeks.
It should take Dwight approx. 6-8 weeks

When he is back though will there be enough time for the Lakers to go on run? Like a 20 game winning streak? :)

What's the point of tanking when the Suns own their 1st rounder if its in the lottery?

Lakers will actually need a 30 game winning streak from end of January the way they are going....

A torn labia doesn't need surgery... Just stitches and no sex for a while ;)

They don't deserve to make the playoffs. The team is riddled with flaws, of course David Stern might feel the urge to "spice" up story lines and bring the Lakers back from nothing.

For NBA fans it's better they don't make the playoffs. This organization needs a reboot starting from the headcoach. Mike D'Antoni is a joke
