What is, is. This Lakers squad as constructed without injury issues had a great chance to win the Larry O'Brien.

COVID, injuries (bad coaching) have decimated this team. I honestly, along with many sports aficionados, thought this would be a Lakers vs Nets finals. The return of Kyrie gives the Nets a chance.

Having said that, I don't think the Lakers will make it out of the 1st round if they make the playoffs. Reality is a beach but if it waddles like a duck, quacks like a duck, swims like a duck, it's a duck.

You guys know me of Oh Ye Of Little Faith. Sorry, I have little faith. I hang on to a glimmer of hope. It's gonna take a miracle.

I'll cheer for the team to win every game. My heart will cheer loudly my mind will be in despair.

MERRY CHRISTMAS GO LAKERS 🎅 🎄

I see another L.

Popovich Spurs are back into their process and groove.

They will outwork the Lakers for this W and we will keep hearing the “health” excuse when in reality the Lakers have had 2 of their big 3 for most of the games.

Still does not matter if the rest of the team don't perform...

What is going with Monk... Thought he got cleared days ago?

Role players are role players for a reason. Maybe the big 3 just can’t collectively carry a team of role players anymore. LeGrandpa is trying his best. Russ is Russ and AD looks like he is content being what he is right now.

Supposedly he re-entered protocols after his flight back to LA. So I guess he tested positive again after being cleared to fly…

Carry? Big 3 giving you like 70ppg combined average... Role players still have to step up and do their job and not go 2-24... What else can the big 3 do when a ton of those shots were wide open. Role players are garbage right now... We're also seems to be losing to teams with their role players playing like all stars.

Don't know what's going on with the team and FO. Do they still have championship aspirations? Are they still convinced they have what it takes to win it all, go on a 10 to 12 game win streak, be an elite defensive team?

Is Rob working the phone, or content with the current group of guys?

I'm starting to feel unsure what these games all mean.. Sometimes it just feels like the team is going through the motions and waiting for the league to shut down for this season, except Lebron and Russ on some nights.

Looking for a good game from Dwight Howard tonight (double-double). We need his energy and his ability to protect the rim especially with so many guys out.
