I have spoken to people who have really bought into this win streak, and they believed that the Lakers have really improved. In all honesty, we beat teams playing third stringers, who even then were not trying that hard. We played some of our best players, and now we risk losing our picks.

Sure enough, we face talent (Dubs didnt appear to be going full throttle either), and its obvious that there waa very little value in those wins.

Isn't it weird how Metta wouldn't shoot the ball yesterday out of class yet stole the ball and tried to score in the final five seconds today?

Or -- wait for it -- those wins are evidence of incremental progress, BUT we still are miles away from the Warriors. What a concept.

We rested more of our starters than the (bleep) Warriors did btw, of course we were gonna get smoked by the championship favorites.

And even less value in crying about it. The tank was over 2 days ago.

Let's hope for friendly dice, and absent that, a good off season.

Yup. December through early March was really ugly. The 10-10 start and D-Lo and BI's play/consistency post-All Star break were the highlights of this season.

Many of us predicted around 25-27 wins at the start of the season, so on that front, expectations were met, but that 10-10 start left us wanting more, understandably. That string of injuries in December pretty much derailed the season, sadly.

Now, it's time to hope and pray that we get lucky on May 16th. Here's to a good summer of development by our core!

Yeah. Just hope Luke is right and the basketball gods favor us. It would be nice if we get a high pick this year and get the 2019 pick. We can actually concentrate on winning and getting better. I have a lot of faith in our core, and I think a couple of more pieces with continuity and growth will be special.

Lets Go Lakers!

At 10 and 10 never thought it would end like this.

Still, I think the worst is over. Next year will be much better, knock on wood

Yeah, the team overall played pretty well, but even Luke warned that the season was about developing and building a culture, IMO all that considered and the team basically knew the only thing they could have achieved this year is Improving as individuals.

We really need to add veterans this summer who can make Impact.
