Can Phoenix just win one accidentally?

I hate to say it, we might rue that "win" against the Suns.

We have had some close calls since also, we are peaking at the wrong time.

We have an ace up our sleeves. Our last game is a day after the Suns season is over. So if we have the same amount of loses, they better lose that game.

LOL, that's ultimately the problem with tanking. Winning games is hard, but any fool who wants to can throw a game.

Just keep tanking. There is a 2 game buffer, don't make it one. These (bleep) did a complete 180. They were winning not too long ago.

That final game against the Warriors kind of scares me. Kerr might sit the whole starting 5.

The Lakers could have enough breathing room to go for that final win. It'd be hilarious if they split the season series against the Warriors.

The year we got Russell, we were 4th worst and jumped to 2. I'm pretty sure NY was stoked to be 2nd worst, then when they dropped to 4, they looked sad. Then when Porky turned out okay, they're happy again. LOL!

So you never know, just let the chips fall where they may.

Most likely the Suns will win one more out of sheer luck, 16 game losing streaks almost never happen

Suns better win vrs Nets. Because those final 4 games we play could be wins. The young guys are beginning to mesh and build a foundation for what could be bright futures.

At home vrs the Kings I would think is a win for the lakers, Minny and the Pelicans whom will both be out of playoff contention in LA sound dangerous, and the Warriors in the last game of the season will be resting and avoiding any injuries. I hope the Spurs win everything to make the warriors have to win that last game against us to insure the #1 spot for them.


April 7 – Sacramento at Lakers

April 9 – Minnesota at Lakers

April 11 – New Orleans at Lakers

April 12 – Lakers at Golden State

we had one good game against a very disinterested Cavaliers team. before that lost by 30 and 40. not sure exactly where you are seeing the young guys beginning to mesh. fingers crossed it will stay that way with good individual player performances but terrible team defense making sure we don't come out on top too often here..

Yeah at this point as bad as it is we really should be prioritizing keeping the pick, which I think we're doing.

I actually like that Luke is leaning on the young guys...they're going to make mistakes, a lot of them, because they are young, which in turn helps us lose...which is good, also good their getting this experience in a lost season, really valuable experience to take into the off season.


Still a bit of a crap shoot until they select the order, but hopefully it works out in the lakers favor, we still need a lot of help.

Well in that scenario, getting the 4th pick = sadness for Lakers fans no matter what.
