    Lakers are A LOOONG ways away from competing with teams like the Clippers, Thunder, or Spurs in the play-offs.

    Well obviously they have a ways to go to even make the playoffs. Like I said, IF they play like they have the last 2 games they beat anyone. The playoffs are traditionally a half court grind, and that favors a team like LA with multiple bigs, and older guys who understand spacing, sets, etc.

    It's all about how the Lakers defend, and how they move the ball. They have enough firepower to compete with the teams you named, IMO.....

    Been reading Lakergrounds, My Gawd do fans know how to overreact! If OKC wins this it's just business as usual. Since LA won all of a sudden everything has changed? LOL.

    I am not talking about you Jmizzy. Just talking about other Lakers fans who are living in denial.

    I can see why they are optimistic. Something finally clicked with Kobe. They still have tons of talent and potential

    Yeah, unfortunately Laker fans don't corner the market on knee jerk reactions. I have been a Laker fan since the 70's, and they usually have pretty level fans. A lot of younger Kobe fans have jumped aboard in the last 15 yrs....

    Like Bounce said, the Lakers were predicted to win the west, and possibly the whole thing. Like Van Gundy said, they had a 5 game streak earlier, but never came close to playing like they have the last 2 games against Utah & OKC. If they play inspired defense, and Kobe keeps sharing, they have the firepower to beat anyone.

    Teams will adjust, and at some point Kobe will probably need 30 shots for them to win. I had about given up on them after the Chicago fiasco, but the last 2 games, not just the wins, but the effort, execution, and teamwork have given me a new hope.

    A lot of work left to be done, but I think they FINALLY got on the right track. Now we have to see if they sustain it......

    Will this make the Westbrook haters realize the Thunder need Westbrook to score? The assists are nice, but the need Russ to hit his normal shots.

    There is no doubt in my mind that OKC is a much more dangerous team when RW scores over 20, but when he is shooting 27% from the field (which doesn't happen often), he does not need to shoot the ball 22x's and the other guys need to step up (Ibaka, K-Mart, Collision, etc). But I still think we lost this game on the defensive end

    Westbrook had decent shots, just weren't falling.
       

  11. #1711
    Yep. Not like Westbrook was taking shots he usually doesn't...just one of those horrible nights that every shooter has.

    Agree that defense lost us the game. We couldn't get a stop in the final 2 minutes. You will not win a game from behind on the back of the offense.

    I said you could enjoy this win in my earlier post, your sensitivity didn't allow you to do so without putting a butthurt post

    Hahahahaha.. did you really think that was a butthurt post??? I was actually poking fun at you because everyone was pretty tame about today's game which meant little in the overall scheme of things, and only you seemed to be bothered by any Laker celebration, which of course was not evident anyway.

    Like I said LA has won enough and lost enough, that most of our fans stay pretty level headed about things either way. No one in purple/gold was jumping up & down, and we certainly weren't crowning ourselves. I was simply saying if LA plays like they have the last 2 games, they can give anyone in the league INCLUDING Da Thunda, trouble with their roster.....

    In all honesty, my original post was in response to ESPN continuously showing it and talking about it like it was some playoff game. I had no problem with anything you specifically said, you can enjoy it, its a good win. I would

    LA is LA, I get it, but if you're gonna show a team's highlights and break them down of a below .500 team, show Charlotte some love then

    Totally understand that. Always has been that way with any teams in LA, NY, Chicago, ETC.... LA gets a lot of press because of Kobe/Nash/D-12. If I was a non Laker fan I would tire quickly of it. Same with the Cowboys, Yankees, etc.......

    He's the best, but doesn't play hard 24/7 like Kobe, KD, etc.

    has to be a MAJOR spot of frustration for hoop purists world wide... Whether they be players (I imagine Kobe would love to throttle D12), coaches, fans. The guy has all the tools , gifts , and opportunity to be a top 3 Center. Guy dogs it more often than not and STILL dominates smh.

    Sound a lot like another Laker former center..... As much as I loved Shaq, this would be a pretty accurate description of him as well.......

    One theory I heard was that she told them her money was in the car and went out to get it, but the employees locked the door so she couldn't leave. Who knows what to believe.. onky if we could watch full video with audio.

    Honestly don't understand this, at least ride out your leading scorer until the end of the season.

    Can you imagine how different OKC would of been last season if they traded Harden at the deadline instead of riding him out?

    The Grizzlies are going insane. They just traded 3 good role players for a nobody about a week ago.

    I wonder how that feels as an athlete. Get traded from a play-off team that could make a ton of noise, to some no hope team under .500.

    Oh well, they get millions of dollars playing a kids game

    He got what he wanted. Money

    Rudy Gay had money and played for a great team, now he plays for a Canadian team
