Pretty sure some still view the Heatles' first season together as a failure too. Some teams won't accept anything less than a title. In their case, they apparently won't accept anything less than 5, no 6, no 7 titles...
Like I said, any good team not winning a championship failed. The goal in any sport is to win. Win the first game of the year and the last game of the year. Anything less is (to some extend) a failure.
I know they failed and I know they were expected to win the championships.
But when I see people comparing the current Lakers to those ones I feel as though it would be great if made it the Finals this season. It would obviously be better if we won as I'd probably RAGE a lot if they lost, but it mean we would likely have a good chance of getting it next year(like what happened with the Lakers' group from 5 years ago when Pau joined and the Heat recently). That was a one year team that managed to make the finals. This is a 2-3 year team that I see winning at least one ring.
This is a dead end conversation. I suggest not replying. I'm tired and bored and ANNOYED with anything that relates to the Lakers.
I tried talking about the Cavs but no one would respond to my posts.
And yeah VAJ did well last night, I was surprised to see he almost had a triple double but from what I saw in that game( the first half and end of the fourth) I shouldn't be considering I saw him setup quite a few baskets and a lot of them after his offensive boards.
no. not that. people have been comparing this team to the one in 03-04, not the game, and I just don't see how that's a terrible comparison. I want this team to make the finals their first year, I would be stoked if they did, and that's what I'm hoping for. of course I don't want them to lose, but I think if they did they would just be more prepared to win next year as I think we at least have one more good year left in this team after this year.
