Another game in which Kobe

Another game in which Kobe tried to do to much......... 7 turnovers against a mediocre defensive Cavs team.... Gasol was killing it today and should have had several more shots.....

Sessions is finally starting

Sessions is finally starting to play like the player I knew he would be. Too bad his team sucks.

as a laker fan, really

as a laker fan, really nothing to say. Gasol was the only guy who brought it. Kobe sucked. Bynum was 2-12 and was missing 3 footers. Brown had one of the most head scratching plays of the season when he grabbed an offensive rebound 8 feet from the basket with 4 seconds reminaing in the 3rd and immediately dribbled out behind the 3 line and jacked it up as if his team was down 3 at the end of the 4th. Even the announcers were in shock on that one. Defense was awful. All we laker fans can do is hope they rethink things in during the all-star break and pick it up.

Quincey "double standard"

Quincey "double standard" Hodges said that there's no excuse to lose to the Cavs when they beat the Clippers.

What will he say now lol? Ha!

I actually want Sessions to

I actually want Sessions to go to a better team, I remember getting clowned for believing Sessions was a good player and very good point guard. I think because of the moves he made and the teams he was on, he could never showcase what he could do until recently thanks to injuries to Mo Williams. Mo played but it was clear that during his time away Sessions needs minutes. I still think he is starting point guard and that if he was in the place of Rondo on the Celtics they would be a better team or very close to where they are now.

Sessions has played this well

Sessions has played this well before. His problem is consistency. And Sessions wouldn't make The Celtics a better team come on now once again you're going overboard. His defense is nothing like Rondos( even before this game where Fisher got buckets) and one game he will play well the next he looks like a third string

As far as the Lakers I'm not too happy but also not to surprised. The Clippers were one of the worst teams last year and took us out. Pretty much the Lakers can lose to any team in the regular season, I'm just glad the playoffs isn't one and done. I can't blame Kobe too much because the bigs got the ball alot this game (Bynum was 2-12 and Gasol went to work) but our defense was just plain awful.

Yeah not making an excuse but i'm not worried about the regular season just like the last two years its like " damn the Lakers lost to the cavs, oh well playoffs coming soon" that's honestly how i look at at. Before the title run it would piss me off now its hohum

There comes a time for every team when that "wait until the playoffs come to flipped the switch" won't work.

This looks like that season for the Lakers. It really does.

im not tripping out on losses

im not tripping out on losses or overreacting, but there are a few things that you cant just turn off or on. How often bynum gets touches is something that needs to be figured out now. Ron artest dissapearing needs to be figured out now. I think the defense will pick up, kobe will get it going and the team will focus when they have to. But the cavs???

Yeah I've heard that the last

Yeah I've heard that the last two years actually. Thats the good thing about playoffs, its a 7 game series not one game. The lakers have had bad loses every year to bad teams( i think we lost to the worst team in the NBA last year) and i know we lost to the bobcats every title year. And on here i remember people saying the Thunder would beat us after tying it up then the suns had a chance and the Celtics were gonna win. I used to debate about it before the first year we won then again last year but not as much. This year i don't even debate since they know what it takes to win a series and knowing a title isn't won in feb( stole that one from the Espn and TNT crew lol). But none laker fans are more than welcome to doubt as usual, makes it that much better come playoff time:)

Hm

Seems like everyone is able to beat the Lakers these days. I remember a time where you wouldn't even bother watching a game if your team was playing them because more often than not your team would lose. But now...ohhhh boy.

I wouldn't bet against the Lakers come playoff time, but they look real vulnerable right now. The 1 and 3 positions are weeeaaak.

It's one thing to lose. It's

It's one thing to lose. It's a WHOLE other thing to lose to bad teams, get BLOWN OUT by decent teams, and get demolished by good teams.

That said, I'm not doubting the Lakers, they always put it together come playoff time.

I think some people forgot Toronto beat us last year as well. I'm actually surprised that we have the second best road record in the NBA. Just wish the Lakers would treat the regular season liek its the playoffs

the sorry thing is when the

the sorry thing is when the lakers started this 7 game road trip, they were 4-0 vs solid teams(new orleans, memphis, boston, NY) and everyone was saying they are focused and kobe is playing great. Then they proceeded to play like crap the last 3 games and all that positive momentum just flew right out the window.

IF you think the Lakers are

IF you think the Lakers are guaranteed to get into the Finals, you're crazy. San Antonio can beat the Lakers. They're a better team.

Come on now you should be

Come on now you should be used to this. Lakers start losing and people say how bad they are and how they won't make it past this or that round etc. Then they win and its wow they look good and this and that. Gotta be used to it by now. I'm looking at some of the post from last year and some mirror the one's this year. Many said we won't get past Utah, Alot said This is the Cavs year and others saying The magic is finally ready. Wait till next year after They win the title again, you will see these same posts

The Lakers seriously need to

The Lakers seriously need to figure out the problems with Artest and solve their PG problem. They won't win another championship if their 1 & 3 positions play this badly. I'm not just talking about this game. Over the course of this season, the scoring they get from those two positions is pedestrian.. Artest's defense right now isn't even worth the play he is putting up on offense, and don't even get me started about Fisher. He would make a good assistant coach or something or a player coach type of thing because they honestly don't need him on the floor for his leadership or whatever he brings.

The thing with the Lakers is

The thing with the Lakers is they're trying to make their FOURTH straight finals appearance and with teams like the Spurs Mavericks and Thunder it won't be easy I see the Lakers still making the finals, but I have trouble seeing them win the series against whoever they may face in the finals

nothing is guaranteed of

nothing is guaranteed of course. My opinion is the Lakers will win again. Just not worried about the Spurs or any other team in the west to be honest. Not one bit. I do worry about Boston though, gotta beat them out for home court advantage

I don't know... I don't think

I don't know... I don't think this year is similar to the last two. The Lakers look WAY more vulnerable this season. The problem is you Lakers fans are spoiled and complacent lol.

I see no reason to think the Lakers will beat the Spurs when the Spurs have been better the entire season and look like the better ball club at all aspects of basketball.

"Many said we won't get past Utah"

I'm pretty sure nobody outside of the completely biased Utah Jazz fan base ever said that.

@nomoney, john hollinger in his official espn picks had utah beating the lakers in the playoffs. He then changed it the first day the series started becasue he said memo being out would change the outcome.

I see no reason to think the

I see no reason to think the spurs will win because this is the regular season. Cavs sure did look like title contenders the last two years just like these Spurs. Denver looked very good as well as Dallas. Lakers and Boston didn't look to good. Has nothing to do with being complacent and everything to do with seeing the type of team the Lakers are in the playoffs. That's probably Why non laker fans on tv still have the Lakers as the favorite to come out West. They don't have short term memory and know how the Lakers turn it on come playoff time. Not the best way to do things but hey if it works then ya go with it

Lakers

I think they are in trouble.

If they had the chance to get Melo for Bynum straight up, or anything close to straight up, and didn't then they are beyard TARDED. Everybody says you can't get guys like Bynum, they are All over the place. Biggest paper tiger in basketball. They won a title without him with basically the same team.

Its not even this game. Its been all year. They're just very beatable, and lack some of the pieces they had to just turn it on like they used to. Fisher is a year slower, and just can't guard anybody for 20 mins a game even right now. Blake isn't any sort of answer. Artest has mailed it in for whatever reason, and he just isn't the kind of guy I'd want to have to rely on for it all to work. After Kobe, who isn't a consistent dominator anymore, and Gasol, who can be if they let him, they are Lamar Odom and the old guys.

Boston or Miami this year. I don't see anybody in the West. I think that Chicago would probably beat whoever the west puts out.

The Spurs aren't too small. I'd take them in a playoff series.

Yeah, if Andrei Kirilenko wasn't injured we would have won the... Well, we would've won a game or two.

lol every year you gonna have people on here that look at the regular season and think that's how the playoffs will turn out, forgetting that the playoffs is a whole different season. Now if it was lose and you're out i'd be pretty worried. I'd be more than pretty worried actually to be honest

I concur... Hinrich would be

I concur... Hinrich would be a great fit for the Lakers. Like you said, he is a really good defensive player, mobile, and he can score. They need to shake this team up before the trade deadline. That is for sure. They need some young legs on the team. I think one of their biggest problems is getting killed in transition and not scoring in transition. I thought Shannon Brown would step it up to another gear this year, but I was wrong. He's playing slightly better than last year, but at the beginning of the year, he showed a lot of promise.

The Spurs are playing a different style this year which relies on them running more and going through the guards it'll get you a lot of wins in the regular season, but in the playoffs when the game slows down...the Lakers bigs would take advantage once the playoffs hit

I

I thought the Cavs would make the playoffs. They aren't as spirited as I'd hoped they would be.

I agree that this doesn't really mean anything in the grand scheme of things. The Lakers are still the defending champs.
