"There [Spurs] defense hasn't

"There [Spurs] defense hasn't been so great though which is gonna hurt them when the game slows down in the playoffs"

Only they have the 10th best defense in the L while LA has the 11th..

The Spurs won't have a problem defending come playoff time. This team has been around the block a few times when it comes to playoff basketball.

They usually have a better

They usually have a better defense than that. and the Lakers step up there defense in the playoffs. We know the Spurs are playing the best they can and work hard every game we also know the Lakers on the other hand don't do that. They act like they are the old schools bulls and can turn it on and off whenever( not the best plan but it seems to work for them)

Yeah i thought the Cavs would make the playoffs this year as well. Did Dallas get past the first round last year even though they looked pretty good last year?..

matt barnes is now practicing

matt barnes is now practicing after missing the last 18 games and might be back in another week or 2. I wonder how many laker fans thought they would be relishing the day matt barnes would be available. He defends and hustles, thats enough to help in games like tonight.

lol, we'll see. You know out

lol, we'll see. You know out of all the pac 10 teams, i have seen stnford the least. Missed the last game betwen the two. Im curious to see what they look like. I believe i predicted ucla to finish 2nd in the pac 10 and top 25 overall and was called out by people such as yourself for that, they are currently second and making a run at a top 25 spot...

kobe is mr crutch? Kobe

kobe is mr crutch? Kobe played bad, but he didnt shoot them out of it, they should have beat cleavland with kobe not even in the lineup. You can always tell the haters/new fans becasue they will say kobe shouldnt be taking 20 shots based on a couple losses. You have to ride the boat with great players, you cant pick and choose when they get to take shots. ANd 5 titles in ill take kobe's good with his bad.

Some days Stanford looks

Some days Stanford looks great others they don't. Good defense but they have problems on offense sometimes( youngest team in the nation and no seniors)

Lakers were vunerable last

Lakers were vunerable last year. I think people forget that. The thing is right now their is more spotlight because they are going for number 3 and also they host the All Star game.

No one is really scared of

No one is really scared of the Lakers like in the past.

Kobe is definately slowing downa little, Artest outside of his dirty play what does he really do.

Fisher is old and getting beat by every PG. No longer is this the best team in the league.

Losing to plenty of elite teams and now the Bobcats and Cavs too.

This wasn't a game on a back to back night either.

No one was scared of the Lakers the last two years. The Lakers aren't scary and they don't need to be because they are very scared. Man some people have short term memory i see. Guess some of y'all forgot the Lakers lost 7 of there last 10 going into the playoffs last year huh.

Okay I should rephrase that

Okay I should rephrase that the elite teams aren't scared of the Lakers, especially the Celtics and Spurs.

Yeah the Lakers are still the chanmps but they have a lot more holes and the league has caught up.

Look at the competition they faced in the West Conf. Finals the last 2 years in the playoffs compared to the teams this year.

The Spurs are better than the Nuggets and Suns of the last 2 years. The East Conf. winner most likely the Celtics are deeper and despite their age seem to be a better team. Also the Lakers won't have homecourt advantage outside of the first 2 rounds most likely. You'll probably say it doesn't mean much but its doubtful the Lakers win the title last year without homecourt.

Should have beat the Spurs

Should have beat the Spurs that last game that they won by the tip. and The Lakers went to Boston and beat them so they know they can still beat them. Lakers have the second best Road record so winning on the Road won't be to hard for them.

And like i said before i hope peopel don't get regular season confused with playoff basketball. (prob wont matter since the same people had crowned the Cavs as the champs and the Celtics as one and done)

Winning on the road is never

Winning on the road is never easy and the Lakers record against elite teams is what 1-5.

They are still legit title contenders but probably not the favorite.
