There are a lot of people in the media who think the Lakers are going to get it together. I think the betting odds for a championship are still really close between the Lakers and Suns.

Amazingly you are correct. Suns +800 and Lakers +1100

Yeah they look bad more often than not but they've had a lot of injuries and an almost complete roster workover in the offseason followed by a lot of replacements in season and yet, they are still playing .500 ball. I seem to be nearly alone in this and I am not afraid of them but anyone completely writing them off might be premature.
The team on the floor last night doesn’t scare me at all. We looked terrible in the first half but yet blew them out by 20.

A healthy AD makes a huge difference come playoffs.

I think the Lakers can get it together (CAN, not will) and if so they can be a threat in the postseason but I don't see them getting out of the West even if they're fully healthy. And I like my money too much to place a bet on them being fully healthy. I just think the idea that they are all washed up is about as likely as the idea they'll win it all.

I was amused watching the entire Lakers team cry and complain about every single thing. That team looks old and dried up like a prune.
I wasn't able to watch the game because I was driving, but the radio seemed to think that Westbrook should have been called for 10 more fouls than he was.

She was terrible beyond that as well. Super stiff, head buried down in her notes.
It was hilarious because she kept talking about how great Westbrook played as if she didn't watch the game at all and just saw the 22pt and 10 reb statline.

He’s been comically bad all year. Just a turnover machine.

At one point she argued to all the guys on the set, like they never played or watched basketball before. I told my wife, "I think Shaq just got woman-splained!"

Didn't want to start a new thread but I ordered some of these stickers about a month ago and forgot about them because I sent them to a few people with Christmas cards. Figured someone here might have interest in them. The seller is a Suns fan also, so no Laker's benefit from the sale at all.
