Dear LA fans,

Did we see any threads about LA are better off not making the playoffs 5 years ago? The same thread would get destroyed 5 years ago easily but now LA fans I meant some homers do actually want to see him lose so they can draft an impact player.

I thought LA fans are different from the rest of the world, I thought they are full or arrorgant. But thread like the abovementioned just shoke my head and lost me tons of respect.

Sign, just dismiss the entire orginzation and move to Clippers so I dont have to group the 2 teams as 2 losing teams, 2 different team losing fans.

What a losing team.

Yes, we are a losing team right now. We need some help at PG, though. Please send us Penny Hardaway so that he can break down defenses and shut down opposing PGs with his old, broke down ***. Oh yeah, mine is true bait. F!

Actually, the difference this year is that the Lakers lose their first rounder if they make the playoffs. That hasn't happened in many, many years. So missing the playoffs actually benefits them if they draft an elite PG in the lottery (Jack or Felton as examples). If they had their first rounder whether they made the playoffs or not, I'd be rooting for them to make the playoffs (not that it would matter, they're not going anywhere this season).

I will not tolerate missing the playoffs. Kobe and Mitch should hang their heads in shame if that happens. Magic Johnson and Jerry West would never disgrace the Laker name like that.

By the way, you need to stop rooting for a true loser like Penny. I would break my TV in disgust if that guy wore purple and gold.
