i think they'll make it now cause of "called in favors"


but it isn't exactly a sure thing


behind them right now is a slow starting spurs/jazz/rockets/pelicans


lakers have the 7th spot... all 4 of those teams should go on a run at some point

This thread was made on the basis of the original team.

Adding Tyson Chandler was huge. Granted, they could still miss it, but they fixed a big hole they had with adding Tyson (mostly fixed at least).

Yes, adding a washed up 38 year old Chandler has changed everything. You are absolutely right, OP. Good call. Dumb fukking mutt.

Chandler plays 20mpg off the bench.. Are you saying he singlehandedly turned the Lakers into a playoff team??

What were they before? Missing playoffs?

To all the posters above me, you realize the Lakers haven't lost since adding Chandler right? I mean, the Lakers had ZERO interior defense/rebounding for more than half the game while Javale sat.

Yes, improving your interior defense/rebounding can turn the lakers from the 10th best team in the West to the 7th/8th best team...really it's obvious and easy to understand.

Did you SEE the offensive rebounds Tyson Chandler has given the Lakers in the clutch? Did you SEE the BLOCKS Tyson Chandler has given the Lakers in the clutch?

Yes Chandler made them better no doubt, but they were a playoff team before and they are a playoff team now. The schedule has gotten easier as it was bound to sooner or later after a tough start. Chemistry was also bound to improve sooner or later. LeBron was also going to be better athletically as the season progresses sooner or later. Rotations were bound to improve sooner or later- they are not quite there yet but will continue to improve.

To say Chandler addition alone is why Lakers are better is wrong. That is just 1 of the things that has improved and/or changed over last 2 weeks.

They would have lost 2 out of the last 3 games without Chandler and be sitting at 6-8...

Seriously it's not about a good of a player overall Chandler is, it's he fact that he helps fill a HUGE void the Lakers had. Every game counts for a team like these Lakers. They can't be blowing a bunch of 4th quarters like they have been doing and make the playoff.

Yea, Chandler literally won the Lakers two games. Ignore the rest of these guys, they have no clue on what they speak on and might not be up on current events.

With that said, I find it hard to believe that the Lakers still make it. It would be a miracle if they do, and even more so if they make it out of the first round. Every game looks like a playoff game for them.

You obviously know what I'm saying. His rebounding and defense got the Lakers over the hump, especially in the Hawks game.
