Lol I'm a Laker fan and I absolutely hate this team. I mean it was enough to have to wait for the cable networks to reach a deal with Time Warner, but now this? A shitty brand of basketball? Ugh and I cannot stand freaking Kobe Bryant and his 25+ shots/ 40+ minutes crap. Everything you guys here on CTB said about the Lakers were right. This team is downright awful.

I don't know what to do...

This is what happens when your team is too top heavy and the top heavy part happens to be ancient.

There is no depth and injuries are bound to happen considering how old the starters are.

Kobe at this point in his career basically plays no defense in order to conserve his energy offensively. MWP is a shell of his former self, Dwight is still not at 100%, Nash just got sidelined. Pau is also a shell of his former self and dealing with injuries.

The Lakers will struggle with injuries the rest of the season. Its different from Miami since the Heat had a Big 3 in their prime. This is basically the 2004 Laker team but much worse since 03 Shaq and Kobe>>>current Kobe and Dwight and Pjax>>>>D'Antoni.

The biggest problem is the defense and believe me its not on the coach.

They had a defensive coach in there before he came in and they still sucked defensively. This isn't his doing. Pretty much everyone on the Lakers outside of Dwight is a net negative defender and the Laker players just seem loss defensively, not putting enough effort, or just incapable of playing quality defense.

It's funny how things have changed, in the summer I would have traded EBled, DJ, and draft picks for Howard. Now, I wouldn't trade DJ straight up for Howard. He's just not a winner.

Thats good Spurs lose one and Grizzlies lose one. What I really wanted the most was for OKC to lose. Its ok if the GSW win. They are a good team but I feel that we can beat them in January.

Totally random but, John Hollinger got a job in the Grizzlies front office. Is he trying to become the most hated person in Clipper Land?

My Knicks are embarrassing the Los Angeles Wizards. It is just too funny.

I am not sure if they can even score 100. The Knicks actually play defense. lol

Melo 30 points in 15 shots.

Kobe 31 points in 24 shots.

Anyone see a problem here?

I have to admit I don't know if anyone can outchuck Kobe. Maybe Allen Iverson.

Still not counting the Lakers out until they are REALLY buried in the standings. These ****ers always find a way to turn it around.

Out of what? Out of the playoffs? If they make the playoffs they will lose in the first round so no worries.

Why give Oshley props? It was an easy pick. The Blazers needed a pg and he was the best PG available.

Now for OKC to lose.... They are on a 10 game winning streak. I rather have them lose than the Spurs in the upcoming game.

agreed. Lets all remember that in the offseason the consensus here on CTB was that there was no way that Orlando was dumb enough to give the lakers another franchise cornerstone center. Et they got dwight and even nash....thankfully that roster just isnt producing, but you are very wise in not celebrating this early. We still have to cross our fingers and hope they dont complete another amazing trade

As long as we keep winning, we don't have to cross anything. We control our own destiny.

Only finger the lakers get from me stands straight up.

How bout we not cross our fingers? We control our destiny and we control theirs, we keep winning and beating them, cause it just looks like they do NOT have enough talent on that roster.

I don't care if the Lakers are still way below us. But any time they have a winning streak, it pisses me off.

I could care less about the Lakers. I am more concerned about teams that are actual threats like the OKC, Spurs, Grizzlies and heck even the GSWs.

The reason why you should still be more concerned about the Lakers is because they are underachievers while the Warriors are overachievers. The Lakers still have the better point differential than the Warriors despite the Warriors being 5 games better than the Lakers.

T Wolves beating OKC by 11 right now, we might have the longest active win streak. It really is the end of the world.

Lakers have an SRS of 2 while we have an SRS of 10. The Spurs and Grizzlies have an SRS of around 7 and OKC also has an SRS of 10. In reality, no team is a legit threat in the West outside of the "big four".

Point differential matters but it also matters that the Lakers have a difficult time closing out games. The Warriors are overachievers but they match up well with us and can actually close out games unlike the Lakers.

Also point differential isn't everything considering teams can get a lot of points in garbage time vs weak teams.

OKC vs Miami at home. Very good chance OKC will lose. Its a game on national television on Christmas so you can bet that the Heat will show up.

Good chance OKC loses.

Is there any way both teams lose tonight? But I'd rather the Flakers lose. If the Lakers win, that means 4-game winning streak for them. So you don't want to give them any momentum.

Memphis is losing to the Rockets right now. Funny Lin has started to play well ever since the Rockets beat my Knicks at Toyota Center....

Good for him just hopes he doesn't start in the ASG.
