You mean the same Stern that Vetoed the CP3 trade? The same one that put in zone defense that made it harder for the Lakers? His team is the Knicks and they're doing just fine.

They'll get the 8'th seed, don't worry.

I'm sure they'll make a move (coach or players) before then, but a first round exit is very likely at this point. At best they'll get the 6th seed, and that's being really optimistic. They'll face OKC/SA/MEM/LAC with home court advantage... they won't win.

They had a 2 year window with that team and they already wasted one year... this has got to be one of the biggest failures in the history of the league.

Dunno if they'd make the POs or not but I thought they were going to break the 72 win record?

They will make the playoffs but they won't go far. I doubt they even reach the WCF. Championship is out of reach with D'Antoni as your coach.

The Heat started badly when they came together. It takes time to gel even if they are the players that they say they are.

The Lakers are a team where opposing teams look at their calander and say "We can win this game". They are a complete mess right now and they are atrocious defensively. Nash will only hurt the defense even more. The Lakers missing the playoffs is a real possibility but I think they make it.

Let's say the Lakers need to have 45 wins to make the 8th seed and playoffs...

That means they'll need to go 30-17 the rest of the season...

A pretty tall order if you ask me...
