    Perhaps they'll win this season against a team with a winning record

    They dont have the defense to win a championship. Kobe has slowed significantly since last season.

    You guys are crazy, while it sucks that the Lakers lost, considering they have no coach and you can see that half of their plays are improvised on the spot, I was surprised they almost won that gameand against the Spurs nonetheless. They might have won too if Pau didn't take that 3, I mean there were 7 seconds left, dude likely got an earful from Kobe in the locker room for that.


    I don't even know how you can say they do not have defense and that Kobe has slowed down (it's true that he isn't the same but an againg, 80% Kobe is still better than about 90% of the players in the league, 28/4/8 last night while shooting 64% on a very good defensive team) when they put a very good Spurs team to the limit. MWP guarded and slowed down Parker. That win was all in the coaching which the Lakers is lacking at the moment, I mean look at the Lakers' final play while Pop sketched his final play to perfection.


    I'm still not sold on D'Antoni but he will be better than just running the ball and letting Kobe coach the team on the court on the fly.

    of course i'm a laker fan-boy, but i'm with rfx. i was really encouraged by that game. playing against one of the two best teams in the nba (hi stevie!; hi dopey!), they took it right down to the wire. with an interim coach and no point guard (last 10 minutes or so, they had kobe running point with mwp moving to 2 and jamison at 3. i'm not putting that last shot totally on pau, ron-ron inbounded to him, kobe was doubled and when you look at the tape, there wasn't another option. plus, if they hadn't been fighting for the rebound, they might well have gotten the put-back.

    as far as i'm concerned, the real issue with this team -- and one that d'antoni will certainly have to face -- is the bench. their only consistency is their inability to score or defend.

    BTW, nice interview with d'antoni here by my colleague tj simers. not a lot of deep bball in it, but it certainly shows he knows how to charm tj. no easy task.

    I'm not even mad about last night's game. It was pretty good to see the guys just run with how they felt and still kept up with the Spurs. They DID have a 20 sec. time out left so I'm not stressin about the last shot. When they get D'Antoni in these calls (plays & timeouts) will be made.

    the ultimate F*CK YOU to Buss would be for Phil Jackson to somehow force his way to coach the Thunder. The thunder actually would be perfect for the Triangle Offense.

    The thunder right now even without harden still have a championship contender team talent wise... but it really needs a better coach who can really make the most of it - their offense sets are just like the lakers right now: pretty much pick up/streetball plays relying pure talent. Ironically they'd be perfect for a princeton/triangle offense.

    Watched a few min of LAC vs. MIA last night and had a few thoughts:

    - Bledsoe's block on Wade was awesome.

    - So glad that Norris Cole is done with rookie hazing and has brought back the high top fade.

    - Udonis Haslem's beard might be the ugliest thing in the NBA.
