Right.

That Kool-Aid container must be bottomless.

I'm already worried about my 46-36 prediction holding up.

I'l keep sipping my "kool-aid" and you can keep pretending the sky is falling every time this team hits a rough patch.

24 games (exactly one-third of the season!) is just a "rough patch" for you?

You aren't sipping, you're guzzling.

Re: 12/6/12 predict the Lakers final record

It's the regular season. One would think that a fan, especially a fan of a team that is the Lakers' calibur historically, wouldn't be so prone to pushing the panic button.

You keep referencing me as shouting the "sky is falling" or "pushing the panic button" but the truth of the matter is I accepted this team's inability to play with one another quite some time ago.

I don't get all worked up when I know a team is below-caliber. I do get worked up with I know a team is above-caliber and losing. That frustrates me.

This team does not frustrate me anymore. I have accepted that they are a mediocre team.

Oh, and more point in regard to your statement "it's the regular season." They are currently in 12th place in the WC. If things continue this god-forsaken path, the regular season is all they will end up with.

Re: 12/6/12 predict the Lakers final record

You don't get worked up over below calibur teams? Didn't you swear off basketball when the Lakers missed the playoffs in 2005?

Yeah, the Lakers are in 12th place. I would be willing to bet that they won't be in 12th place at the end of the season. We'll be fine.

In 2001 during a rough patch Ron claimed the team was done and needed to rebuild. They did after two rings and three trips to the finals later.

Last year he claimed they were a "strong conteder" when they started the season 10-4 and was second in the west. He changed his mind weeks later.

I'll bet you any amount of money the Lakers will make the playoffs. I'll even give you 10-1 odds.

You are the definition of a chicken little and for you to claim you don't get all worked up and emotional is hilarious to anyone that ever reads your posts.

Just telling it like it is, Jamel.

You don't seem too enthused about this team either, by reading your recent posts. So pile on me all you want, but you aren't exactly the definition of calm, collect fan either.

I think most posters here with half-a-brain know I mostly post tongue-in-cheek. Why are you having such a hard time "getting it?"

Same here...for someone who should know far better, you should DEFINITELY know my posting style. Yet you insist on reading my posts "verbatim" as though my emotions can defined by black ink on white canvas. I've stated here many times how you misrepresent my posts and then argue against the misrepresentation.

It's the oldest debating trick in the world and I think most people have figured you out as well by now, Jamel.

As far as the Lakers go, I won't take that bet, because yeah they might make the playoffs, but I am thinking they won't. That is my opinion and I don't have to back it up with hard-earned money...in other words, I don't gamble. I just give my money away in basketball contests on this site.

Re: 12/6/12 predict the Lakers final record

Oh, and I am still sticking with 46-36, and out of the playoffs. Gonna take 50 wins to make the playoffs in the West.

Difference between me and you is I know history and realize this could be very different in 3 months.
