    Default Lakers won 3 of last 12 Games. Why are us Raps fans upset?

    So money can't buy you happiness. I guess when you look at the Lakers and the talent they have on their team and the payroll, it's hard to not feel a little better knowing that even the best teams struggle. So I'm gonna be thankful for another year of rebuild! lol

    Guess Nash would not have helped up this year either way. not to this point anyway.

    Lakers are a mess right now yes but it will eventually click. Raps don't know who they are yet and lost what was established last season, not to mention 4-19 is a much bigger hole to dig out of than Lakers 9-13 (not exactly sure what their record is)

    I am enjoying the season so far, lots of side stories. JV growing as a player, TRoss, Davis.


    My expectations were low. I thought the guy with the fancy collars was on the pipe when he said playoffs.

    Lakers just lost another one.

    I am so much happier as a raptors fan. Could you imagine having a super-friends team not even make the playoffs! LOL!

    Championships they said, Dynasties they said, 8th pick in the lottery they saw...

    Another team under achieving does nothing to make me feel better about the Raptors.

    They should be evaluated on their own merits and right now they are the 2nd worst team in the league.

    The Lakers at least have the comfort of knowing there's enough all-star talent (with plenty of experience) to easily go on a 15-5 run and jump right back into the thick of things.

    The Raptors have no such talent.

    Sorry, but the Lakers got Kobe. It's funny to seem them struggle, but the Raptors are awful. I'll take Kobe and Dwight and three random basketball players over the Raptors.

    See with the Lakers is not a question of talent. Its about their level of "focus" and "attention to detail".

    Either way they still have more wins than the Raptors do.

    Washington has 3 wins people..... shits about to hit the fan.

    lakers are playing with a garbage team so they have a garbage record

    duhon? meeks? even antawn is average at best. metta is a good player but no all-star. lakers basically have 1 player carrying the entire team, kobe. dwight is so handicapped because of hack a dwight and he just aint 100% anyways.

    lakers desperately need nash and gasol back to fix their line ups. you can make judgement after that

    This thread is like going up to a war amputee with no legs and telling him you just saw a guy with no arms or legs, so he should feel happy.

    Guys im sorry, a loss for the lakers is SO much worse. They have no young development to look forward too. Every loss is a kick to the gonads, every loss to washington is a spit in the face, at least the raptors are supposed to lose and we can feel more pleased if Ed shows development than bargs going HAM to win us a game.

    You don't need development to look forward to when you've got a deep playoff run to look forward too.

    You are a masochist. Raps games are unwatchable. Even the love for the game does not do the trick anymore. Turned off the last two games half way through. Never in my life have I turned off bball before... shame and embarrassment.

    My expectations were watching a fight every night. Instead, I see my team schooled on a nightly basis.

    It's good we can talk about the Lakers, because we can't really say the Knicks are garbage anymore and won't have a better record than the Raptors this year like we did in pre-season...

    Yea.. I had a hard time with that analogy. It's hard to find solace when your team is struggling just because some other team is struggling. The Lakers can't stop anyone, but if they played the Raptors 82 times per year, every Laker would make it on the all-defensive team.

    The real problem is that we're not Lakers fans. Well, at least not all of us are. (I think every Raptor fan needs to have a second team to cheer for, to keep us from falling into deep depression.)
    your pal,
