I am very worried. Discuss

PANIC on the streets of L-A
PANIC on the streets of Figueroa
I wonder to myself
Could the Lakers ever win again?

Burn down STAPLES
Hang the blessed DJ
Because the BASKETBALL that they constantly play
It says nothing to me about WINNING
Hang the blessed DJ
Because the BASKETBALL they constantly play

Why????? Huh?

Dude, I have been watching Lakers basketball for 45 years….this is the same preseason that the Lakers go through every year. That hasn’t changed.
Preseason is a feel out time…get players used to playing again, coaching evaluating rotations, etc.

This is what preseason is…

Do you remember the Shaq/Kobe/Phil Jackson Laker team preseasons? These games don’t mean sh*t…

Crazy if anyone panics. I actually think the team looks really good. I love what I am seeing in some players. It’s going to be great.

No panic.

Just don’t think DJ is going to survive this season. He will barely play imo.

Need some of the guys not named Malik Monk to start shooting better if they want playing time.

Need AD to start looking like that top 7 player again.

Thank you for the sarcasm….I guess I should have known. Exactly, no panic is needed.

Nice one OP.

Westbrook hasn't scored a single point in 2 preseason games. Neither has LeBron. Yes. It's all over.

Sounds like you should talk to your therapist. Irrational fear over meaningless games? Yeah, definitely up the meds or smoke more weed or drink more beer.

I'm pretty sure if you go back through the last two decades on this board and read the pre-season threads there is always premature panic over nothing in pre-season. Typical.

The probability of the Lakers not finishing in the top 4 in the WC this season is pretty small. It's basically a given they're in playoffs with home court in the first round. That's why they're playing like crap. That's why half the team isn't even suiting up. There's literally no point to trying in these pointless games unless you want people hurt before the season begins.

So maybe just skip the rest of the pre-season. Your mental health will thank you.

Starters not playing….

It's "I could not care less." Someone on LG corrected me several years ago. I'm paying it forward. LOL!

Damn I was looking forward to hanging the pre-season championship banner next to our Summer League banner. Oh wait, that is what the Clippers celebrate.

Vogel will be given some leeway unlike Ol' Mike Brown. The guy went 0-8 in pre-season and 1-4 before someone pulled the plug. He took a trip to Chick-Fil-A after his firing to ponder his next move with that $11million buyout (for coaching less than year).
