Re: The Lakers WON'T make the playoffs (what's next?)!

does Ron ever get tired of being so gloomy? can you imagine if he was a fan of a normal team and not one that has traipsed through history like a lucky protected fairy child sprinkled in golden dust?

I'm actually a happy, well-adjusted person. Most of what I do here is for effect.

Think of it. From a sports standpoint, I am coming off a Stanley Cup Champion win with the Kings, a championship contender with the Clippers (I am an L.A. fan, not just a Lakers fan), and two world championships from 2009 and 2010.

But if that same team is 17-25, you think I will be bouncing around this forum like that? Come on, get real.

Re: The Lakers WON'T make the playoffs (what's next?)!

why? he either all of a sudden has gotten real fragile or he has character issues and possibly both - I think there are reasons for concern

Dwight has been evaluated and has been cleared to play. Fwiw.

Re: The Lakers WON'T make the playoffs (what's next?)!

Trade who you can for short term contracts and draft picks. Send Kobe out with a playoff appearance next year. Then rebuild in 2014.

Re: The Lakers WON'T make the playoffs (what's next?)!

Even though Howard has been a huge disappointment I'd still give him his extension. Eventually he's going to pull his head out of his ass and revert back to the player he's been pretty much his whole career. (The best center in the league)

Re: The Lakers WON'T make the playoffs (what's next?)!

Dwight is not a leader. He is a faux alpha male. This next paragraph says it all:

One example of the rocky relationship between the two Western Conference All-Star starters, according to a league source, was a game this season when Howard harped to a teammate about the disparity between his and Bryant's shots while sitting on the bench. The teammate called Bryant over so Howard could tell it to Bryant's face, but the center refused to speak up

If he reverts back to 2011 form we're straight. People are starting to forget how good he was.

Re: The Lakers WON'T make the playoffs (what's next?)!

If he's too much of a pussy to confront his teammates about their play, then he will lead us nowhere.

A leader doesn't bitch to his colleagues; he goes straight to the problem and takes care of it himself.

BUWAHAHAHA. I wonder which teammate that was.

I'm sure Dwight then went to teammateB and was like "man TeammbateA is such a d***! He's trying to start drama between me and Kobe!"
