Both teams have deserved to win against this laker team. My tip that LAL will not make the playoffs looking good.Did Lakers make their own draw for start of the season?
OKC and Rox twice already?
Have they played a contender?
I mean 2 losses to OKC. not easy after all.
Every year, the Lakers are subjected to a late January/early February road trip that is longer than all their other road trips. This absence from Los Angeles is caused by the annual Grammy award show that takes over the L.A. Live area outside the arena with part of the event also occurring within Staples Center.Also they have 12 of their first 15 at home.
Compare with Cleveland's schedule, it's insane.
The show, currently slated to occur on January 31st, will cause the Lakers to be on the road from January 21st through February 2nd when they will finally return home to play the Trail Blazers. In that time, they will play six away games against the Magic, Heat, Nets, 76ers, Hornets, and Hawks. The Hornets and 76ers will both present tough road matchups. The Heat will as well as they are looking to return to the NBA Finals with their new All-Star point guard, Kyle Lowry. Trae Young and the Hawks will also be a formidable opponent as will their fans who gave the Knicks and 76ers faithful a run for their money before the Hawks were eliminated in the Eastern Conference Finals by the Bucks.
Laker to miss playoffs. Easy money.How did anyone think that Lakers squad would work...
Front office hoping they kept the receipt for Russ
