Default Am I the only one that is enjoying the time the team has off?

That has enjoyed the last couple days, and will continue to enjoy the couple days until Wednesday? Its a rare 5 days in the playoffs where the fans can be stress less.

When we played the Nuggets I was excited for the next game because I wanted to sweep them.

After games one and two against UTAH i had the same feeling, after Game 3 it was the "we better win game 4 or its a series" thought.... followed by "This is our first must-win game of the playoffs".... after game 5 it was "Please dont go 7 and lets close this out".

What im getting at is I have no thoughts right now, just happy the Lakers are in while the other guys go 7 games, people talking about the importance of home court, game 7, San Antonio's experience, CP3... etc. I dont care about any of it.

Im carefree and loving life right now....

Anyone else??

When it comes to Laker games, it's less about stress and more about impatience. I simply can't wait to see the team play.

And, even if we lose to somebody, I'm happy with the year.

1. We got rid of Kwame Brown, and got some value for it.

2. We've had our best year since 2004.

3. Lots of people consider us among the elite championship contenders.

4. "Next year" - we'll have hopefully a heathly and well-rested Andrew Bynum available, on top of the team that right now had the best record in a loaded Western Conference.

I personally don't call it stress but I am nervous as hell, people. And I think I have a right to be since we know what we are fighting for here. Legacy, honor and for the life of the Lakers. :)
Fortunately, if the Lakers know what they are fighting for, nothing stands between us and those championship rings. It's all in the hearts fellows. All in the heart. I trust we can and will do it.

"If you're not just a little bit nervous before a match, you probably don't have the expectations of yourself that you should have."

LETS SHOW THE FANS OF THE OTHER TEAMS HOW BADLY WE WANT TO WIN THIS SEASON AND WE EXPECT NOTHING LESS. LETS GET THOSE RINGS, BOYS!!!

I got enuf other stuff to be stressed about.

But I am as relaxed as I can be.
I like that the Lakers are getting rested. No fear of rust.

Kobe's back gets some rest.
Ariza gets practise.
Farmar gets to find his mojo again.

nice.

Welcome to my world. Time stands still when there is time off. Killing time becomes somewhat of a refined art. Just gotta beat the bushes and find as much Laker news on the web as you can

Go Lakers!
