Contrary to this thread I did not expect LA to still be sucking this bad at this point in the season. There are still a lot of games left to be played though.

It's a process. Let's see what we have once everyone is healthy and has a chance to let the new system soak in.

I'm eager to see how things go once this happens. I think they will definitley make the playoffs no matter what.

Charles Barkley said that he did not think the Lakers would do well with the team they currently have in place. He said if they trade Gasol away, then it would put even more pressure on Howard.

When Nash returns he can help them offensively. But he won't solve their defensive problems and probably will add to them.

Agreed

It is going to be a real uphill battle for this team, but it is too early to write them off.

And this is a summary of why Kobe's all time status is limited in my opinion. One of the all time great scorers no doubt but just doesn't compare well to the top 10 or so guys

can't believe they're getting worse as the season goes on.   I thought it'd be the other way around.

so far it's been a disaster, but I still think we'll get some good win runs together once we get at full strength.  hopefully, get a good streak of momentum into the post season.    but so far there have been sprinkles of hope draped on a pile of poop.

and with the loss to the cavs and Kobe's 42 LA are now 1-10 in games he's scored 30

can't really blame him though, the rest of the team was horrible, if he'd have passed more they just would have lost by more, don't know if that's the case for the rest of the game but he was carrying the team yesterday, not because he wanted to be the star but because he had no choice, everyone was so terrible he got sick of it and decided to do it all himself Phone Post

Kobe might be a damn rapist, but he is also one of the games great competitors.

Yeah, that's a bullshit stat that the media loves to push as a talking point but the reality is that the only reason the Lakers don't have a worse record is because of Kobe's play. The problem is the rest of the roster. The product on the floor has been woeful. They entire team looks like they're stuck in cement. I've been trying to be patient until Nash and Pau are back but its just been a horrible start.

Lakers 1-11 in games where Kobe scores 30 now, he led the team in points, rebounds and assists last night

Shaq was talking about Kobe before the game, says Kobe will pass to you for the first and second quarters but after that if he feels you're not up to it or not putting the effort in then he'll start to dominate the game and try to win it himself Phone Post

Not hiring Phil is one of the all time fuck ups, he's just going to hover over anything this team does. When you have a chance to hire the greatest coach you don't pass it up.

Phil wouldn't be winning either with no Nash, no Blake, and no Pau.

I still don't understand how they got so bad this year, they didn't have Nash last year anyway, Blake is solid but average, everyone was calling Pau over rated, past it and tradable while he was playing, now that he's out he's suddenly a key player. Phone Post

problem with Pau is that he was always playing out of position.   Phil knew this and allotted his time accordingly at the C.   Brown couldn't grasp this concept and cluttered him in there with Bynum in the low post.    MDA is realizing this and is also giving Pau more minutes at the C, although the Dwight / Pau tandem has had some flashes of great potential on many occassions.

Lakers have never really been at their full strength,  maybe a few games under Brown but Dwight missed all of training camp, Kobe missed half of it, Blake and Nash went down early and Pau was out for a week or so.  

Hopefully when all the pieces finally come together and have had a little time to gel under the MDA system we can really see what this team is capable of.
