Well it’s not official that the Lakers are missing the playoffs but its happening and I’m calling the Lakers season over right now. LeBron has engaged playoff mode which apparently means drinking wine, losing, and bitching about the young players on his team that play more defense than him. So why are we calling the Lakers season over? First let’s look at the standings in the Western Conference and where the Lakers are:
The Lakers currently sit at the 11 seed and three games back from the San Antonio Spurs for that 8 seed. Above them is the is the Timberwolves and the Kings who are playing WAY BETTER basketball than the Lakers right now. So, 3 games might not be that much ground to make up, hell they would even catch the Clippers at the 7 seed even. But let us not forgot how bad the Lakers and LeBron are playing right, and then take a look at their remaining schedule:
So the Lakers still have to play the Milwaukee Bucks twice, the Clippers twice, Denver Nuggets, at the Toronto Raptors, the Brooklyn Nets, the Sacramento Kings, the Utah Jazz twice, the Pelicans twice, Oklahoma City, Golden State, and Portland to close out the season. Also, the New York Knicks and they are HOT right now. Look at that schedule. Look at it again. They have 22 games left. Playing those teams, the Lakers can probably afford to lose like four games. You think they go through that schedule with four or less losses? Not a fucking chance.
The 8 seed in the West last year had 47 wins. Let’s say that number drops to 43-44 this year. Think the Lakers can win 14 of 22 to get to even just 43 wins? Doubtful. Lakers are missing the playoffs. LeBrons a whiny little girl that loves wine and doesn’t care about basketball because he’s butt-hurt about nobody wanting to play with him in LA.
Now let’s watch LeBron James put forth some great effort and play defense.
Wanna now whose the happiest fans in the world right now? Kobe fans.
