Imagine Dwight's line if he could make his free throws! Cleveland is one of the worst teams in the league right now (better than Washington!) & the Lakers still lost to them. There's really no more excuses at this point. We're more than twenty games into the season & the Lakers still don't have a direction. Sports media will talk about how they had to switch gears from the Mike Brown Princeton offense to the D'Antoni offense or whatever but D'Antoni has been there how long so far? And he's already talking about them not playing hard or having any spirit.
I think Kobe is the only one that gives a fuck because he wants another ring. But they surround him with old broken guys (like Nash) or young, immature, don't-give-a-fuck guys (like Howard) & now we're all just sitting around waiting for the implosion.
How a team with Kobe Bryant, Dwight Howard, Steve Nash & Pau Gasol can be a sub .500 team, I have no idea, but here with are. A bad back, trade rumors, blame-shifting, cheap shots in the media, missed free throws, bad defense, etc.
