    Yeah, but that effort was not consistent. We all know when it comes to the playoffs, that its about consistency. Teams that don't make it are the ones who don't see it from that perspective. Even every free throw matters in the final score.

    Back to actual basketball, I thought LBJ overall looked really good for it being his first game back in over a month. I think AD needs to play with more urgency. I don't think it's that he's not ready to go harder, because you saw it in the final minute he stepped it up some. I think he's kind of just been easing his way back at a comfortable pace but it's time to stop messing around and turn that switch on..that goes double for everyone else

    Well, its the problem with today's generation. They grew up in the "participation prize" generation where everyone is a winner. They get a reality lesson when they graduate for high school (if they even make it that far) and the reality of the world don't give out participation prizes. You either perform or get fired. That is reality.

    Kobe has 5 rings and they are not participation prizes. Ask all the all stars who never got a ring. Its all bout winning.

    Yep, we won't get it done if we don't play with urgency, but I think that would still be the case even if we had all the chemistry in the world and guys had never gotten hurt. I think when everyone was healthy everything was too easy and so guys let up and we didnt really change our attitude when everyone went down. I think now is the time to step up. LBJ is the leader so I think guys will follow his lead and he knows what it takes so I fully expect him to lead in this situation.

    Like I always said I will judge AD in the playoffs, if he plays like last year's playoffs I will be fine with him coasting during the season, if not then he will have a lot to prove next year.

    For me, just be HEALTHY the rest of the way. Mad props to the Kings and the young players for pullin this one off. Let em' celebrate. On to the next one.

    I think deep inside, Lakers have a problem that is hidden deep. Not all players are on the same page and some hold a grudge. For instance, when they got Drummond, Marc Gasol's time got cut drastically and he is not happy. That type of resentment will affect the team chemistry and its showing up in subtle ways.

    I think/hope LBJ will rally the troops. We started to see some of it in AD in this game where he started getting into the ear of DS on a few bad plays.

    Absolutely. AD has been kind of being a weenie all year long, but now is the time to show it and if he doesn't he will get it pretty bad from the LA media and fanbase and rightfully so

    Ehh, I think the chemistry issues are simply due to LBJ and AD barely getting back

    No one is calling you out for having a different opinion. Many on here have expressed concern about chemistry issues and there not being that many games left. The issue was that you came in trolling and trying to bait people. No one has had any issues discussing bball once you started discussing it
