    Alright guys, we've been pretty negative lately... and in my opinion it was justified. We have no team identity, defense is bad, offense is clunky, Russ is playing better, but AD takes very inefficient shots, role-players are inconsistent (but that's why they are role-players). The injuries prevented us to develop chemistry and the coaching staff isn't able to deal with the fact that most of our guys are simply not playing hard.

    So... I am interested in your predictions for the next 10 games. Are we going to get better, or is this what we're stuck with? Basically, is it going to be fixed soon or are we not going to be able to get our heads above .500 water for a while?

    Let's see who our opponents are:

    [​IMG]

    Detroit, Sacto, Clips, Boston, Memphis, OKC, Orlando, Dallas, Minny, Chicago.

    Let's see who gets it right.


    My prediction? I'll be optimistic and say 6-4, although realistically I'd like to say 5-5. Can we do .600?

    EDIT: I loved svtzr's suggestion below, so let's do that: we'll move in 10 game increments and see who makes the best predictions. We'll see how much we're improving as well... if at all. Thanks, @svtzr !

    5-5.

    I think Vogel laces them up himself to gets wins against Detroit and Kings (the rematch), because if we lose those he's gone.

    Then I think we beat our arch nemesis the Thunder. I think we take the Grizz because of Ja's knee. And we beat Orlando.

    Those are the only 5 I'm remotely comfortable with.

    We should call this Karacha’s Korner and make predictions moving forward in 10 game increments. There is basically 60 games left.

    @DET - win
    SAC - win
    @LAC - loss
    @BOS - win
    MEM - win
    OKC - win
    @ORL - win
    DAL - win
    @MIN - win
    CHI - loss

    8-2 optimistically.

    The time to make a run is now for this team, Bron is back and besides Nunn and Ariza, everyone else is healthy too. I'm going 8-2 at the least, more likely 9-1. Besides the Suns who are redhot, every team on that list has lost at least 7 games so far. I believe the big 3 are going to take it up a notch and ball out.

    We win all 10 if Reaves and Ariza can take all of DAJs and Bradley's minutes

    I’m going optimistic though honestly I’m not sure why after this last game. Here’s hoping they turn it around and go 7-3 in the next ten.

    how has this thread not existed for the last 10 years? Better late than never!

    0-10

    I'll be pleasantly surprised with any good news. Still haven't been able / willing to catch must of even a single game this year due to lack of interest and time zone stuff.
    I get sick of mercenary ball with complete roster turnover. Feel zero attachment to this team, and that's very sad for me.

    Laker basketball has always been a happy place win or lose. But now I have little interest besides reading fellow members takes and catching the occasional box score.

    3 - 7

    Our roster is terribly constructed and we have no identity. We're going to be a bad team for a while.

    I’m guessing 5-5. We should be able to do better but the team hasn’t proved to me that they care yet. I hear the talk but don’t see the walk.

    5-5 too. Maybe a 6/4. A good team would have at least 8w, but we are far from that. I see us lose stupid games like just yesterday against Wolves, Memphis or Kings again

    The Great Reset is really wreaking havoc with our favorite sports team. Guessing the next 10 game results seems like an exercise in futility
