That's pretty much the way it is right now. Even Laker fans are having trouble getting into the games with all of the stars missing. Hell, I watched maybe 15 minutes total of last night's game.

PG: Gary Payton
SG: Kareem Rush
SF: Devean George
PF: Slava Medvedenko
C: Horace Grant

Bench...
Derek Fisher, Bryon Russell, Luke Walton, Ime Udoka

Luckily, we get Horace back for this game. With Kirilenko and Harpring both out for Utah, we have a very good opportunity for a W here.

I care! :D I just haven't been able to watch as much as I usually do this week.

Yes, it has been discouraging lately, but some of us have been Laker fans a long time and we remember the bad old days. Once Earvin left, it was a rough stretch there for a few years. Luckily it didn't take long for mgmt to get the team some new help and a few years later it was parade time again.

Hang in there everyone. The Jazz are dealing with some health issues as well so maybe we could see a close game [strike]tonight[/strike] (oops, I mean tomorrow).

Actually the games tommorow but yea who cares.. We might get lucky to be in the game until the 3rd quarter.. Hopefully Kobe is back but I dont want him to rush himself.. If he's back I would consider a W

Well before this season, everyone was saying "No Malone, No Stockton = No Jazz..."

The Jazz always seem to find a way to compete, especially on their home floor. This won't be a runaway win for the Lakers, ESPECIALLY if they don't have Kobe. But if Kobe is playing, they should be able to win by 6-12 points.

BTW, Utah's lineup will look like this tomorrow...

PG: Carlos Arroyo...Raul Lopez...Maurice Williams
SG: Deshawn Stevenson...Raja Bell
SF: Aleksander Pavlovic
PF: Michael Ruffin...Jarron Collins
C: Greg Ostertag...Paul Grant

Now, of course this certainly looks like a romping for the Lakers.

However, Maurice Williams got 20 points against Denver in their last game. They've got a lot of good role players. Arroyo is getting 13ppg and 5apg, Stevenson is getting 12ppg and 3rpg, and Bell is getting 10ppg and 3rpg. Then they have Ostertag, Lopez, Pavlovic, Collins and Williams all getting between 5 and 8ppg.

That looks more like the lineup.. Udoka got cut, is there 1 spot left on the roster? Or are the Lakers going with 14?

Kobe came out ON FIRE! Since then, he's cooled off, but it's good to see that he's being aggressive. It's concerning to see him keep rubbing his shoulder, but maybe he's just doing that so it doesn't get stiff.

Slava is playing like a monster down low! Unfortunately, we got killed on the defensive boards late in the 2nd quarter, but we came out with our biggest lead of the game thus far.

WE WANT FOX! WE WANT FOX!

Come on Phil! Play Rick!:mad:
