Just had to bump the thread. Anyone want to change their mind? They still haven't clinched, but a lot has changed since I first asked the question.

That question was asked two months ago you dummy, oh you think they can? No shit. That's the whole point of the bump. Way to go on a limb and risk your ISH rep making crazy predictions.

I think there's a possibility they might have a chance to make the playoffs. What gave you the hunch? The fact that they're currently in 8th and are two games away from sixth, or is it because they're 14-5 since February? We got a reall regular NBA insider over here, making Hollinger like advanced stats predictions. Resident Nostradamus to the rescue!!

Meh, not yet. Those close games to those scrub teams don't justify it for me. We'll see how the Lakers do against this road trip and then we can properly assess how they are.

I didn't post on this predicting Lakers will not make but I have to eat crow now.

If their hope is the title, it will be one of the toughest roads ever. They will have to start series on the road and that's pretty tougher obviously than not.

The lowest seed to win it all was the 1994-95 Houston Rockets when they got Clyde Drexler just before the trading deadline. They started the POs at 6th seed.

That team's post season run was miracles after miracles all the way to the end of game 1. Then it seems the young Orlando Magic (Nick Anderson especially) psychologically affected by this and the Rockets almost went cruise control to their sweep. (Yes I remember this series I am that old believe it or not).

My bad. Anyway I'm saying back then i always thought they will make the POs, but encouraged the Lakers to fail cos i wanted the pick, even while everyone else was bashing their failure. Thanks for the heads up though.

Now maybe it wasn't that smart of me but did i deserve your sarcasm?

Lol don't take it seriously, that's how I crack jokes, trying to lighten the mood in this place, the only time people are dissing each other on IsH is over the dumbest arguments these days

I gave up on my team. Glad that I was wrong so far. But they were 17-25 and had a 7 game road trip next week at the time I said what I said.

This thread just shows how short sighted most posters on this website truly are. After every game, MVPs change, Goats change, champions are crowned, overreactions, etc etc...

It's like this is first season for most posters and they don't realize how long a season is, and how much changes from month to month and into the post season
