Conspiracy or Coincidence: Lakers / Blazers?

OK! The Blazers were just 25 and 23, and now they have lost six straight games making them 25 and 29. This of course, moved the Lakers into the 9th standing. Two of the six losses were against Phoenix and Orlando, the worst and second to worst teams in their respective conferences.

Do you think the NBA is setting it up for the Lakers to somehow go against all odds and make the playoffs, or is it just coincidence that the Lakers are winning and the Blazers have been losing?

Not sure if this means anything, but Oregon and California are neighboring states. Are the two teams working some agreement with each other, or is Stern possibly trying to increase NBA viewership for the playoffs by capturing the attention of all audiences by surprising the world that the Lakers will make playoffs?

The Lakers were so far in the slumps that even if they started winning, the only way they could make the playoffs would be if teams in the 7th, 8th, and 9th standings began losing tremendously. Sure enough, the Blazers have indeed gone on a six-game losing spree, boosting the Lakers to the 9th stading.

Conspiracy or coincidence?

Re: Conspiracy or Coincidence: Lakers / Blazers?



It's all a conspiracy and not only that, I think you only hit the tip of the iceberg.

There's so much more shit going on like you know how LeBron is hella efficient? I think he or his Illuminati group paid the NBA to make a machine into the rim, and that machine makes the rim bigger like enlarges it only for LeBron and when he shoots the ball. I mean that is the only plausible explanation.

But yeah, no. You're bugging.

The Blazers don't have a bench...literally. Their starters are not nearly good enough to make up for it.

So the starters all play 48 minutes a game?

Or did you mean figuratively?

Re: Conspiracy or Coincidence: Lakers / Blazers?

It's still quite an achievement that the Rockets are 30-26. If James Harden doesn't play out of his mind every game, that team is garbage. I did not think Harden was on that kind of level as a player.

Re: Conspiracy or Coincidence: Lakers / Blazers?

Don't get me wrong, I have never thought of LaMarcus Aldridge as being a contender, but to lose to Orlando, Phoenix and the Hornets in a six game stretch is a disgrace.

I don't know guys, losing to the Hornets, Magic, and Suns screams conspiracy, but conincidences do occur. It's just that the fact that the playoffs are right around the corner, and to lose a valuable 9th spot losing to teams like the Hornets, Orlando, and Phoenix seem like a set up so the Lakers can make the playoffs. I admit that I have no proof, but it sure does feel as though the NBA is making an easy entry to the playoffs for the Lakers. : )

Actually, I think he meant that anyone not currently playing for the Blazers doesn't have anything to sit on, so they must stand. Which normally wouldn't be that big of a deal, but the starters aren't really anything worth standing up for.

Well, in the case there isn't a team in the league with a bench then, huh?

Re: Conspiracy or Coincidence: Lakers / Blazers?

It also seems a little fishy that Magic Johnson now believes the Lakers will make the playoffs, and Ernie Johnson is rubbing it in to Kenny and Charles by saying "I told you the Lakers are going to make playoffs," yet neither one has ever brought up the fact that the Blazers have lost six straight games allowing the Lakers to move closer to the eighth standing.

For whatever reason, the media seem to think it's solely the Lakers' progress that is moving them forward, and they are completely ignoring the fact that the Blazers have been on a huge losing spree.

I SMELL FISH! : ) : ) lol
