An early game today for the lakers. And I'm still at work.

Another shakeup to the lineup as Jordan Hill is starting for Jamison. Pau is still out.

Lets get a W. If not, it's definitely time to panic.

I hope the Lakers lose another--it's getting hilarious to watch the drama unfold.

I have Kobe and Kyrie going...
Both with nice games so far. Nice to have you back Irving.

Watching Joe Johnson miss WIDE OPEN 3s hurts me.
But I guess he's got 8 points.

It's hard to put the ball in the hands of someone who routinely shoots 50% from the line. It's nearly impossible to do so for someone who shoots 33%. Dwight's got the yipps. He's like a second baseman who can't make the pass to first. maybe trading pau isn't the answer. Maybe trading dwight is.

This has Laker's loss written all over it...
And they're not beating the Knicks in NYC (IMO)
So that's a 2-2 road trip at best.

To be fair, they are without two starters, including the most important component of D'Antoni's offense with Nash. The offense will be fine once Nash and Gasol returns. But as for this defense, I'm pretty stoked to see how much worse it can be once Nash returns.

gotta admit that was a sick sequence by Irving... defensive rebound nearly tiptoeing the line, then takes it up the court, behind the back crossover on Duhon, then a step back 3-pointer jumper. Ridiculous.
Then Kobe comes immediately right back with a sick jumper off the glass. :D

Assuming the lakers can manage to settle around .500 by the trade deadline, if D12 wants to wait until the offseason to resign, is there any chance he gets dealt again?

To be fair to the Lakers, D12 is practically the only one playing defense. Most teams exploit this by PnRing them to death until the other 4 leave someone open since they have no coordination
