Phil could NOT fix this team, did you all forget 2011 when we got swept by Dallas, because this team sucked ass this same way this team does down the stretch. Phil lost that 2011 team. Eventually coaches get tuned out, Phil probably the greatest of all time, but he's damn near 70 years old now.
This team is just top heavy and not healthy, 70 percent dwight if that. N o Nash, no Gasol. No Blake then a bunch of average to shitty ass players. We have absolutely NO point guard to run this team. Kobe is playing 39 minutes a game and is running out of gas at the end, cause thats the only way this team even has a shot.
The Lakers will never ever be the Chiefs. Im a hardcore Laker fan i been watching basketball for a long long time and there is never too many down years for the Lakers. Could it get bad for a year or 3? sure, but it will get back up there.
Anyways, Lakers are just bad right now. You have Kobe playing 100 percent and everyone else lost in space. Dwight cant be Dwight cause he's still recovering from the back surgery and doesnt have his explosion. He even said it, i wasnt supposed to be back til Jan, but my back is good enough that its healed all the way but it just needs to get the strength back.
