if phil jackson was still coach, i would be worried.
pringle's specialty seems to be jamming square pegs in to round holes, so mostly what i see happening is the lakers simply removing themselves from the lottery as a pride thing. cuz the other elite teams who play much more efficiently than they do will bring them down at some point, such as the spurs or the traveling durants. so attaboy, lake show!
