Default Now don't you believe me when I say Lakers are not a lock?

Yes, I already said the Lakers probably will make the playoffs. But I said they ain't a lock, and people crapped all over my statement. Well, they lost again and it's becoming a regular thing. Even after signing Howard, firing the coach, doing this and that, they just aren't the Lakers of old. Problems with Gasol, problems with depth, you name it. At first glance you think they have all the superstars to make it work but Gasol has not been a star and Kobe and Howard haven't been enough, with no depth. With Nash, I don't know how well that will play out because they are 3 completely different players.

So I stand by what i said. They are not a lock. They have a good chance, but only a good chance. All kinds of teams are abusing them in every way.

I don't.

I'm a Bulls fan, all you guys should get your laughs in now while the Lakers are struggling because they will get better. This is a group of players still trying to get their chemistry right. Remember whe the 2011 Heat were like 9-8 at one point? They still got to the Finals that year. The Lakers will improve as the seaon goes along and I expect them to be right up there with SA, OKC, Memphis etc.

Their biggest obstacle is being in the WC, it's deep as hell. If they were in the EC, they would be Miami's biggest obstacle. I don't feel sorry for a franchise that has 16 NBA titles...GTFO.

Any team with talent is a lock in the NBA playoffs.

You're saying he has trouble communicating? Or are you trying to make an insult out of a condition which doesn't relate to anything, thereby making you look ignorant

Is the OP the biggest flip-flopper/knee-jerk reactor that ISH has ever seen?
