I'd blame your GM wayyyyyy before VanGundy.

Really, when you get the best big-man of his era dropped in your lap and can't manage to put even decent talent around him....that isn't the coaches fault.

Yeah, they lose that game and the Clippers are sitting 1/2 game behind them.

The Lakers want the 3-seed and not the 4th or they have to play OKC in the 2nd round. (IMO)

However, they're putting heavy minutes on their core starters still, perhaps that win will allow them to coast the next few weeks so they hit the playoffs fresher.

Things keep going the way they are and the spurs are going to take the top spot so the lakers may end up facing okc in round 2 anyway

Yeah, I hadn't checked the standings in a couple days and you are right...Spurs only 1 game behind.

Spurs have the tougher remaining schedule IMO but we shall just have to see how it plays out.

The teams they play are no tougher but the timing is. B2b's and a b2b2b sucks.

It will be interesting to see now what happens since VanGundy found out Dwight Howard wanted him fired especially since they have a game on national TV tonight at 7pm vs the knicks

The Spurs are one team that doesn't need home court advantage throughout the playoffs.

Can we really consider Blake Griffin a star since he is one-dimensional? All he is known for is dunking and if you force him to be a jump shooter then he is a non-factor on the offensive end

blake is a star because of his hype, his athletic ability, and his "potential", now asked who would i take blake griffin or kevin love, i say kevin love every day of the week.

if blake learns to shoot and not rely on that which will leave him as he ages he will be dangerous. he is still a great talent, and the league loves him but he is very very raw.
