    Re: What's with the Lakers schedule?

    Boston Fans.. where loyalty is a weapon!  The funny thing about my bretheren in this region, they no nothing beyond their own teams, except maybe a one or two obvious rival teams.  Ask them something truely basketball related about the Sacramento Kings or Charlotte Bobcats and you'll get a bunch of snide or cut down remarks as a way of deflecting their total ignorance to the actual subject.  

    In essence, Boston fans are pretty much laundry lovers, like a gang banger.  Wearing green and being front runners.  Pride has its rules!

    In Response to Re: What's with the Lakers schedule? : You would be wrong.  I don't care if he Lakers win 65 games, if they don't bring home a ring, it is of no consequence. Rings are all that matter for this team, at this stage. The Lakers won 57 games last year in the regular season, that is seemingly your cross to bear. For whatever reason, I can only guess it is the only the only thing you have left in a very weak arsenal of nonsensical ways to attack the team. If it matters to you, well then hey, carry on with it.

    That's because the Lakers are paying Kobe 24.8m, Gasol 17.8, and Bynum 13.8m this year. At that price 60 wins every season should be the minimum.

    You really want us to believe the NBA started in 80s?

    HAHAHA!!!

    In Response to Re: What's with the Lakers schedule? : Dark ages? The Lakers are claiming that they have 16 championships, didn't the first 5 came from the Minneapolis Lakers?  Does this mean the Lakers actually only have 11 championships? Dark ages you say?
    Posted by P34


    Yes, dark ages I say.

    Let's discard the Lakers's 6 won before the Bird/Magic era.

    And the Celtics' 13 too.

    Deal?

    I've been saying 10-4 all along.

    In Response to Re: What's with the Lakers schedule? : Oh, you can't even begin to understand how regrettable my participation in this exercise is to me,  after I realized just how lame the argument you were making was. For that, I blame myself. But, for the lameness of trying to make the argument in the first place, I blame you.
    Posted by Give-in-to-it


    Why blame me? I'm just pointing it out, the Lakers had an easy schedule last year but couldn't get 60 wins. 

    What if this year the Lakers get 60 wins, I don't think you will say that this argument is lame because I bet if the Lakers win 60 games this year you would be telling me how wrong I am.

    That's why the Celtics had to play Game 6 and 7 at Staples.

    I actually think 60 wins is a hard target to make. As said above you can win 65 games in a season, but if you don't win a title it's meaningless.

    Lakers will win between 50 to 60 games, same with the Celtics.

    I say this because both teams are veteran teams, and are running the season as if it's a marathon and not a sprint. If you win a close game and play bad it's not such a bad thing. If you lose a second game of a back to back it's not such a big deal.

    I think you guys lost to Cleveland because the Cavs were pumped for their season opener. Plus you'll have teams lift when they play the Celtics. Works the same for the Lakers and also this season, The Heat because of the off season.

    Even Dr. Buss put 16 diamonds on the latest Laker championship rings. Did you know that Dr. Buss designed that ring himself? 

    The PA announcer also said that the Lakers are raising the banner for their 16th championship. Facts are facts, deal with it!

    Such is life!

    You said a few months the Lakers had only won 11. Wow, they won another 5 in the off season? Incredible!!

    BTW, the Laker banner ceremony was great. The intros of the team by it's own members was classy. Well done Lakers!

    Posted by P34


    I will try and go slower for you. I don't know if the Lakers will get sixty wins or not. I really don't care as long as they get the championship. I said the Lakers will win more regular season games than the Celtics. That is my prediction. Above sixty wins, below sixty wins, no matter. They will have a better regular season win total than team social security. Is this clear enough for you?

    A opener with the Rockets and then a nice leisurely three day rest and second game with Suns who just played the night before?  Then a hard earned weekend rest before a Sunday game with the dreaded Warriors who just lost Curry.  Hopefully the schedulers stick it to our least favorite down the road.

    The League deliberately cooked up a cupcake schedule so the Lakers can get a heads up on the rest of the NBA.  Is this what you want to hear?

    Come on, give us your prediction on how many games the Lakers will win this season. 

    I hate to say this but it's great that a Laker fan admits to the Lakers not being a 60-win team.

    I think both teams will get just over 50 wins each. Probably no more than 56 for each team.

    Sixty wins is kind of irrelevant when you are winning championships. Regular season win totals are something the fans of the losing teams worry about; obviously.

    In the meantime, get to work propping up that 4th seeded 50-32 clunker your favorite team plunked down last season. By your standards the big three isn't so big after all. And the "great" rondo isn't so great either.

    So let's win 60 games, and have the lakers win 59, since it doesn't matter to them.  Then, after disposing of the Heat, we will go to the Finals with HCA.  As "fans" of the lakers, is that what you really want?
