Default We were in the hunt...where's the enthusiasm we once had?

We have taken some bad, really bad losses recently.....

It looks like our effort is lacking especially in the
first halfs......we have been behind at halftime many
times......

Is it exhaustion? or have we lost the drive?

i think it's a combination of things, mostly the team is getting ready for the playoffs.. a spot is clinched now and the priorities change..now the priority is on getting guys healthy, working on different sets, etc etc. i noticed a couple odd lineups last night too and phils substitutions were different also...

It's all about the defense.....or lack there of. This team will only go as far as their defense takes them. It's not a good sign that their defense is this bad when the playoffs are around the corner.

I'd like to see the Lakers start off playing m2m and forget about doubling the post. Make that post guy earn the doubles. I'd rather make that post guy work hard to earn his points and not give up wide open jumpers everywhere.

we sorta suck right now
we used to blow out teams on a consistant basis...but games like last one really is pretty painful...especially against a sub 500 team
so it's not that exciting i suppose, for me anyway

The last few years have been a humbling experience being a Laker fan.

You never know which team is going to show up for the game.

I guess you gotta suffer with them in order to truly appreciate it when they win?
