Who cares? We are not making the playoffs, not even challenging for a spot. Probably another year of not watching much NBA for me. Thank god my Raiders are starting to kick azz.


Lakers will win a title before the Raiders do.


Lol I highly doubt that. Raiders have an elite QB. Lakers got NADA. If Ball lives up to the hype maybe. But that's a long shot at best.



Lol raiders

Curious how ESPN predictions lineup with the Vegas odds makers. I'd imagine they just take the over/under and write content for that. Probably about as accurate as anything.

I think 37 to 39 is possible if KCP is as good a defender as we've been told and if Lopez can provide some rim protection.

If Kuzma and Ennis shoots over 40% from 3s, we'll make playoffs.

I wish there was a way to historically track this, but I believe the Vegas odds on the Lakers are usually a little higher. Call it a regional sucker bias.

ESPN has been very lucky regarding there prediction on the Lakers record the last few years, they had the Howard/Kobe Lakers winning 60+ games they got lucky the team couldn't build chemistry with a rash of injuries especially last year when we were playing good ball early on.

I would say that there is a good chance ESPN gets the Lakers prediction wrong and we win higher then 33 games....


The Lakers have usually been well below what ESPN predicts. I don't think they've had much luck at all in that regard.
