To reach the playoffs in the Western Conference you need a few things; a solid coach, a go to guy, a capable bench, but more importantly wins. As it stands right now 1/5/13 the Lakers are 15-17 in their first 32 games. That's nearly half the NBA season and they aren't even above .500. This isn't the Eastern Conference when 1-2 teams a year can sneak in with a sub .500 record. In order to make the playoffs the minimum amount of wins the last 2 full regular seasons ( according to ESPN ) is 46 to get into the playoffs.....

Tough stretch coming up for them too. They could be done by all-star break. They're not going to fire another coach, so they'll look to make trades.

With Dirk back in the Mavericks lineup, I can see the Lakers finishing the season at the 10th seed. It may be wishful thinking but so far my wish has been granted, Thanks Basketball Genie

the flakers wont make the playoffs, and it might sound crazy, but they might entertain the idea of trading howard and kobe. might is the key word. for those two u could get 4 talented, young players. glad im not their gm.

That'd be a bonus for us Clipper fans. Lakers giving up and admitting they have to rebuild.

Kobe just needs to be gone, seriously. He cripples their team with his massive salary and I think it's time he hangs up the sneakers.

I haven't really watched the Lakers much this season and when I saw them play against us on Friday it was obvious they are simply not a team. BBall is a team sport and individual talent is not enough. Of course Kobe just makes that worse. He scores up to 40 a game which is amazing in itself but a team needs to score more than that to win if you get my drift.

Im so happy we didnt trade. Howard is a mess emotionally and physically. Idk if you know this. For the first in a long time. Clippers not involved in any trade rumors and we shouldnt be. If we get anybody. it will be a free agent. i dont see us adding anybody or a trade.

Kobe Has A NoTrade Clause (Obviously He Saw What He Did To The Lakers With Shaq And Took An Extra Step On Securing His Spot On The Lakers)

So Kobe Needs To Be Amnestied By Season's End. You Can't Use That Chip During The Season. But Good Luck On That. Laker Fans Are More Obsessed With NOW, Not 2-5 Years From Now With Dwight.

My Argument With Stupid Laker Fans At Work Is, I'm Not Here For A History Lesson Of How Many Championships You Have, I'm Asking, When's Your Next One If The Clippers Are Playing At This Level With Most Young Players Being Locked Up. Their Reply, "Enjoy The Moment" I Say, "OH TRUST ME, I AM"

When Kobe Is Gone, It'll Be A Cold Shack.

Do the Lakers have any draft picks if they don't make the playoffs?

nope! They gave them to phoenix for nash. Dumbass! Very Happy

We have our 1st rounders but no 2nd rounders until 2018. Oh except 2015. Two 2nd rounders from the hornets for CP3.

Kobe's wish to play with CP3 in the lakers did not happen so he might just ask to be traded to clippers next season lol!

Lakers are screwed in every way possible, fragile old guys that let their egos dictate the team's success, and I don't see them making the pos, don't know what they'll do. No draft picks, salary cap is stuffed, and D12 might leave their sorry A**
