LOL Fakerfans are trying to reverse jinx the team.
Relax, they won't miss the playoffs.

If you're talking about the lakers in 2004... they still made it to the finals and were a Karl Malone away from winning that

This is the same thing as the Heat starting 10-10 (or something like that) in 2011. Then they ended up winning about 60 and reaching the finals. The difference is the Lakers are missing their third best player. The Heat were healthy pretty much all of that season.
The Lakers may not make the finals, but they're not a finished product. You can't judge how good they are yet.

No, the difference is, Miami had three youngish players (all under 30) and a better supporting bench. They also had a in his prime Lebron. The Lakers Saba Howard are retirement home worthy. Not just age but miles. Then you factor in a terrible terrible bench and a crap coach. Well, you got yourself a Kings level team. If that.
