What does it say about the game of basketball, when an arrogant, self-aggrandizing, team with an overblown sense of entitlement, is favored to win it all? I will put my money and hopes on my Bulls. After all, sometimes the “Good Guys” win!

wow. so we are the bad guys now? you would think maybe the heat, or the celtiics, but the lakers? just bcuz we are a winning franchise?

explain how the lakers are arrogant?

for the sake of ur post, i pray we see u guys in the finals. trust me, u guys are gonna need that home court advantage.

You are loaded with talent, experience, plus the "best" coach in the League, yet you take it all for granted. You disrespect your fans by mailing it in at times. You claim to be bored when it suits you, even when the stakes are high. Arrogantly insisting that the Regular Season is not important, while other teams around you are striving to succeed. Strutting around and blaring for all to hear, that you are the back-to-back defending champs, but not caring enough to act like it on the court.

Championships are not a given. They should know this. Yet they act as though, based on past accomplishments, they are entitled. Lets just hope for your sake and theirs,they can find that magical switch this year. Hard work and commitment win championships. I think they've forgotten what got them here.

The Lakers have acted like they haven't cared at times since that 09 championship. The regular season doesn't matter that much. The 01 and 02 Lakers didn't have the top overall seed, they made it just fine. I think Lebron's Cavs will tell you how much the regular season matters.

They will lose in the finals.... It is going to be 08 all over again.

Bynum is out, the East is hungry, and the Lakers are just lacking the focus they need to win against elite opponents.

Lakers211221
04-14-2011, 06:57 AM
The real question should be, "how long will Andrew Bynum last in the playoffs?" If Andrew Bynum plays every game in the playoffs, then the Lakers win the Championship. If he goes down, they will have trouble against about 6 teams and it is possible that they don't win it.

This is false...the MRI revealed a bone bruise. Bynum will good to go in round 1. Not that they really need him to beat the Hornets.

Funny how all of the sudden Bulls fans become self righteous now that theyre winning, and painting the Lakers out to be the bad guys. All the reasons they hate us now are the very same reasons they praised M.J s Bulls. They have had the same coach so they carry the same midset. Like it or not, 3peat all the way. The Zen Master wins in threes. Go Lakers

AntiG
04-14-2011, 10:14 AM
All depends on the Chicken Pox issue. If the vulnerable players (Kobe/Bynum/Artest) do not get infected, they'll likely at least make the WCF. If they are not, then they'll have a first round exit.

I hope they loose. Basically Laker fans will continue to sniff Kobe's jock which hey, it's loyalty but it's so hard to three peat but again, the Lakers have the history of doing that. So. It's up in the air. Being a Celtics fan I really respect what the Lakers have done, hell I rather root for the Lakers than the Miami queefs to win the title.

you guys sure they lose to the spurs?
spurs have a pretty rough road before the WCF

Memphis is feisty, and OKC is going to be difficult
if they get to the WCF, will they have enough to beat the lakers who have an easy opponent in new orleans, and another potentially easy series in dallas?

04-14-2011, 08:14 PM
if bynum's knee is not an issue in the playoffs, they should be the favorite once again to win it all. their depth up front is a huge advantage over every team in the playoffs. i dont think there struggles at the end of the season are indicative of their playoff success. the lakers have been known to have bad stretches in the regular season, but have been able to turn it on in the playoffs.

stawka
04-14-2011, 08:22 PM
AT LEAST conference Finals. Kobe/Gasol/Odom is enough to go to the WCF in any year, add to the mix a healthy Bynum and I think they'll reach the Finals, and depending who the matchup is it'll determine the winner

Luckily for us, they'd have to beat Denver first. Then San Antonio.

Don't underestimate George Karl and the Nuggets.

That said, I hope to God we don't play the Heat. I couldn't watch the series, so much rides on it between my family members and I. I have a bunch of cousins (one of them is the King of obnoxious) and I couldn't deal with a Heat championship.


If we do play them, I hope we can win.

Im not underestimating them they mesh real good as a team and have a secent bench but dont have that player to take over the last 5 mins of the game...If JR can get hot he is just as good as any other player in the league but his game is a roller coaster

As for San an tone i think thunder will beat them up in 5 show everyone just how good they are

Laker vs Thunder?! awesome series will watch every second wont get up 2 pee

Remember the game slows down in the palyoffs, especially as you reach the end. The lakers are the best half court team. OK, MIA & CHI (fast/atheltic) are the most troublesome for the lakers in the middle of the year, but when the game slows ways down and so much is on the line, who do you think has the stomach and experience to see it through?
