Who amongst those guys are injury prone? Of course it was expected with Dwight's back surgery, but he's missed more games due to a completely unrelated shoulder injury, & Nash has been old for a few years with no issues. Plus Blake & Hill on top of that.

Can I has no more Earl Clarke at center?

It's time for Earl to take a seat at the end of the bench.

Pau is very injury prone. Nash had a messed up back 5 years ago plus he is old. Kobe is old an always gets nicked up (he plays through it but his finger, knee, he always has some injury). Blake and Hill are the only real surprises and they are role players and backups.
Pau & Kobe are starting tonight.

I think Pau should come off the bench. At least for a few games.

Pau isn't very injury prone. Before this season, he missed 1 game in the last 2 years and only had one somewhat significant injury in the last 5 years. (he missed 16 games in '10)

Nash didn't hurt his back. He bumped legs with someone else and it broke his shin. He's been old for like 5 years now. It was just a freak play.

Kobe is dinged up though, no doubt. But he's like 6th on the list of most injured Lakers this year.

I'm actually okay with it. MDA doesn't have too much time to figure out what lineups work well together and what his rotation's gonna be. Aside from the first game, this is the first time this season we've had our full 8 man rotation this season. (not counting Hill, of course)
Everything started so well, and then they just stopped trying. Just gave up the first lead with 9 minutes to go in the game.
Good game tonight
Not surprised. lol



How about guard Ariza when he's lighting you up from 3.


im sorry

It's amazing how blatant it is.
Now I know Kobe has been the face of the Franchise for the last 10 years BUT..... he is a BALL HOG and will be 35 years old, Lakers aint winning no title soon so why not trade him for a group of younger players and say a draft pick? Lakers need to make Dwight Howard the number 1 option and run the offense thru him. the sooner they find this out and trade Kobe this offseason, the better and faster they'll become.
