The past two games has been painful to watch.


Granted that these two games were a win for us, but if you were actually in the game you wouldn't be able to tell the difference because of the fans booing. Surely, we will probably wake up from this slump -- hopefully before Christmas.

That's when we get our rematch against the Mean Green Machine. Looking at how Boston is playing we can pretty much anticipate that it will be a very difficult match. Unless by some miracle we were able to reclaim that spark of confidence in our defense and shutting down opponents from scoring more than a hundred points and we may have a chance to pull off a close victory.

Then again, the warm family feeling up to Lakers organization never ceased to generate news of bickering and conflicts. Jordan Farmar unleashed his frustration at Phil during the Knicks game was not encouraging sign at the moral of the team's chemistry. Let's face it, we are a team that will never be short of drama.

So with the upcoming four games in five days, a sick Pau, and a sick Odom, and let's not forget a frustrated Farmer --his pregame Boston session will be very interesting to watch.

Laker 112 Sacramento 103 - it should have been a blow out...

Okay, so we managed to squeeze out another win. After building a comfortable lead we managed to let them come back at us again, and again, and again.

It's beginning to seem like no matter how big a lead were able to generate it's never safe. I'm beginning to dread the word that has been on my mind for the past few days for this team -- "overrated". Looking into the eyes of our players, it seems like we're always confuse when it comes to defense. Watch the Boston players eyes, and you can see that they are determined to win and win big every game. Look at Cleveland and we can see how intense they are in offense and defense.

It will be a matter of time before the Lakers face a collapse situation and go into a losing slump.

We've got to play better Defense!!!

The beginning of the season was a gem for us Laker fans. As the season progressed especially these two last names -- wait a second, this past five games has been a "horror flick" for us Laker fans. We, my friends are still soft in the middle like a Pillsbury doughboy. Looking at how Boston and Cleveland are eating up all of their opponents, do you actually think we have a chance against them.

let's compare our schedules starting from December the 19th all the way until the day we meet Boston on December 25:

December 19
Chicago at Boston
Lakers at Miami

December 20
Boston gets day off
Lakers at Orlando

December 21
New York at Boston
Lakers get the day off

December 22
Boston gets day off
Lakers at Memphis

December 23
Philadelphia at Boston
Lakers at New Orleans

December 24
Lakers and Boston day off

December 25
Boston at Lakers

looking at the schedule, I'm telling you we will not beat them.

I think, we should trade Lamar at the end of the season and sign Artest. Unless we spiced up our strength in standing up against rough guys or teams, the best we can do is stay afloat at number two.

Either Rambus has to come up with a new defensive system really quick, or we actually start hustling and chasing the basketball, we will still see Kobe sitting puppy eyed and sulking at the end of the championship round.
