If the season continues this way? I don't see how they could not be. It is absolutely shocking how terrible they are. I didn't see it coming at all.

I saw it. It was yesterday, a call went the other way and Nash walked down court with his arm over the official's back pleading his cause. It wasn't anything aggressive of course, but still, he indeed touched him.

The Lakers have generally been underwhelming. Even Kobe, who has played matador defense the whole season. They need someone to kick their butts around and set their defense up.
But yes, it's hard to believe that they are not a .500 team based on their starters' talent alone. It's like they have been coached down and/or have serious chemistry issues.

I REALLY hate to be a Laker advocate, but they've been absolutely killed by injuries this year.

That being said, some of the games they've lost (when healthy or not) this season were embarrassing.

Yeah the Lakers have had terrible depth for years, but overall great health and top level talent have kept them at the top.

Now health and poor roster fit have really killed them.

It was sorta like when you go to your buddy and say "listen" and you put your arm around him you know? Of course he's not getting suspended, Rondo got suspended because of his history and the way he handled the phone call thingy. Even if it were something severe with Nash, you know the league wouldn't say a thing.

This is true but this bench is worse than ever.

To get the all star cast, they greatly sacrificed depth. And on a team with aging parts. Now they pay the price.

Can't say I'm not enjoying it.

Now that the C's are winning, I'd agree.

loving it but I have that horrible feeling deep down that IF the Lakers miss the playoffs this year, they will end up with a top 3 pick and land their next franchise cornerstone
Pick 2 Draft 2014: Cleveland Cavs:
Starters:
Kyrie Irving, Kevin Martin, Luol Deng, Serge Ibaka, Nikola Vucevic.
Bench: Andray Blatche, Tyreke Evans, Corey Brewer, Kosta Koufos, Rodney Stuckey, Anthony Morrow, Reggie Evans
