  1. It proves tanking is stupid. It was stupid to...

    It proves tanking is stupid. It was stupid to cheer for tanking last season, and it is stupid this season. What part of that don't you get?

    And please explain to me what my "way" is. I don't...
  2. Two of my favorite things about all of this...

    Two of my favorite things about all of this tanking discussion:
    1) The childish belief that anyone here has any influence or say on the team deciding to tank. They didn't tank last year, they are...
  3. Poll: I think being on the side of something that will...

    I think being on the side of something that will never happen (tanking) is idiotic. Just as it is idiotic to put up a poll that basically says: "choice A - you believe in what I believe in, or...

    I never said we were exclusively trying to get the first pick. I simply used the example that losing more games (the main part of tanking) does not necessarily create an advantage in the end given...

    LOL, let's all just pretend that tanking works and that last year didn't happen. Let me remind you: A TEAM WITH A BETTER RECORD THAN THE LAKERS GOT THE FIRST OVERALL PICK!!!! The lottery was...

    Wait, so you are telling me the Lakers dominate the league defensively when Kobe is not on the court?

    Watching the game that close, with people who pay good money to see the games, and not with...

    I am at the game and I can't believe anyone would be stupid enough to think that Kobe is the problem in this team. There are so many issues and so many players who seemed to have checked out, and...

    First off, you completely ignored the part where I made the point that NBA owners do lose a lot of money on players that don't pan out. Why did the league institute the rule prohibiting high school...

    There are two sides to every story. The owners do make money but they also risk a lot of money and lose a lot of money. For every Kobe or Durant, there is a player making tons of cash and not...

    If Nick Young can have this kind of effect on the team, imagine if management actually did their job and got a current All-Star to play along side Kobe.

    Blaming any coach for this team is the biggest waste of time in this forum. This team was not put together to win. Just like last year, it was put together to kill time until the front office can...

    All of this is because management, in an effort to appear competent, and with the help of the coaching stuff, have been trying to sell us all on the ridiculous idea that Wesley Johnson can develop...

    Lin and Boozer would be nice additions to the bench of a contending team. They have no business being this crucial to a team, just like Wes Johnson and Sacre have no business being in the NBA.

    The team that won the lottery last season had 6 more wins than the Lakers. Maybe you should be cheering for more wins. LOL

    At least someone gets it, thank you. I guess blaming a curse is sexier.

    LOL, Time Warner Cable has great coverage.

    Why isn't anyone looking at the obvious culprit for all of these injuries? It obviously wasn't D'Antoni. He is no longer here, plus he didn't have so...

    You mean the Magic who got his coach fired? That's definitely not "my-way-or-no-way ego". Or do you mean the Magic who ruined the franchise, and almost ended his life, with his selfish life choices?...

    Wow, you are are really eager to show your ignorance, aren't you? Who is Nick Young interchengeable with in this team again? Roscoe Smith? Wayne Ellington? Same talent, right? Jeremy Lin and Jabari...

    What Kupchak is doing is basically what Jim Buss wanted to do in '07 and '08 (remember that?), which was to tank and hope to land a big time free agent down the road. The targets at that time were...

    Wow, so we are all collectively just going to pretend that most of the team is not out with injuries? That's the plan? I am just making sure.

    I don't agree with the way management has been...

    I echo everything you said and will add that there also used to be a sense of humor that no longer exists. You would argue with someone and someone else would come in with a joke to break the...

    Almost every season you have one or two teams that surprisingly overachieve, just like you have one or two teams that underachieve. It's not scientific at all and if the Lakers made the playoffs, it...

    I don't think Boozer is as bad as you are making him out to be. The key here is what are the expectations of each player. Sacre is a joke, but we are really not expecting much from him. Boozer is...

    Chicago is this season's Houston. Last season so called "experts" were falling all over themselves to predict that Houston would be a championship contender. Funny how that huge playoff collapse got...
