Laugh in the face of adversity...LAUGH, I say!!!


What's happenin' Laker's fans?? It isn't everyday that I make posts on here. Usually, I reserve taking the time to do so until I have something that I feel is relevant to say. So, the time has come. I have been reading (still...) plenty of articles regarding the Lakers and how horribly they're playing right now. It's so very typical for the media (and the rest of the general public) to micro-analyze what a team is doing wrong when they're not winning games. This is another case of that. Nobody was saying anything when the lakers started the season the way they did...Now, oh no...a FOUR game losing streak!! pssshhhhhhh...I say, AND????????? My logic is this: Okay, we lost four in a row. But the last time I checked, there were still a TON of games left to WIN this season. What so many people tend to forget is we have to look at the end result, not the short term bumps in the road. I took the liberty of looking back at last year's schedule/results and this is what I found...(besides how much of a short term memory we as humans have...)...

After quite a hot start last season, there were a couple of bumps in the road. I took the liberty of compiling a list of all the shitty (apologies) teams that beat us last year. Please see below:

82 Wed, Apr 14, 2010 @ Los Angeles Clippers  7:30 / 10:30 pm  L 91-107


So...my point is this: Who care what order we lose the games in? I see it as a simple statistics problem. We are bound to lose X number of games in a season, regardless or the order, opponent, date etc...Soooo, all this being said, SYMUN SEZ DON'T PANIC!! :o)  It's December F*&KING 3rd for crying outloud!!! :o)


Oh, and a footnote for possible Trolls. Am I making excuses? Nope. Just putting an 82 game season into perspective.
