    The 8th seed currently is projected to finish 41-41, the west is weaker now, so the OP's projections are irrelevant. With some fringe playoff teams like the Wolves being injury ravaged, the Mavs just getting old, etc, I can see the west finally sending a team to the playoffs that finishes .500. The Lakers are 3 games out. Of course they can still make it.

    That being said, they are gone quick. They are killing Kobe with minutes, I don't trust their defense or bench, and if they make it, it will have worn that roster out.

    If you want the ultimate, you've got to be willing to pay the ultimate price. It's not tragic to die doing what you love.

    Not to mention if they do make it, it will likely be the 7th or 8th seed and the Thunder, Clippers or Spurs will steam roll this team in the 1st round

    Seriously, where did you get those numbers from? We are only 3 ****ing games(or something like that) behind the 8th seed.

    Three back behind three teams is larger than five back behind one team. It will be very difficult to catch the eight seed for the Lakers.

    Even if they do they might get swept, no point. This is a a completely lost season, no success, no lottery pick . . . ****!

    Like others have said, it won't take 46 wins. But I don't like our chances.

    Stop with those historical numbers. They don't matter here at all. They are only 3 games behind the 8th seed, so it's absolutely possible for them to make it. While I do think they are a group of unhappy players (except Kobe since it's primarily because of his selfishness), it's too talented of a group at least not to turn it around this much.

    I tend to think that they will make the playoffs. I mean it is hard to believe that they will not make it with Howard, Kobe, and Nash. There are still lots of games to be played. However, Dantoni is absolutely horrible, so even if they do make the playoffs they are not getting past the first round.

    Probably not
    They honestly should, you gotta go out and play the games. Who knows what LA will do with a full year of chemistry but I don't think we'll get the chance to know personally. I think, if this type of production continues, we'll see the team flipped. It starts with coaching and as
    Much as he's not historically a "great" coach; at least spoelstra let his team play their games and mesh together in a system that favors the majority of them.
