You asked would it be to most underachieving, I said no, and gave you another team. Why are YOU so defensive?

It's one thing to "say no" respectfully disagree and give reasoning. It's another thing to over-aggressively attack me and what I said as you did. You didn't simply say no. Unfortunately calling people stupid doesn't win you an argument.
The point was this team has four players who are at that elite level. That's one of the whole reasons the 2004 Lakers are regarded as so disappointing, and they made the finals. The Heat at least made the finals as well. You're acting like I'm anti-Laker, which I am not. I am simply posing a question and a modest view. There was absolutely no need to be as aggressive as you were/are. You just appear incredibly insecure.

And nice grammar.

Nash at his age and milage is still playing at HOF level? I doubt any of you guys have watched any games this year. Dwight can't even do crap on offense. Kobe has how many seasons under his belt? All you guys are doing is hanging on to the reputation attached to their names, not their actual contributions this year.

Just report all of his posts. The guy is not even a fan of the game. He's just a useless Kobe Slurper, and LeBron hater.

To whoever doesn't think it is, can you name a season thats worse?

The Lakers do have legit reasons that they haven't met expectations i.e. injuries, coaching changes, etc. But the bottom line is, they've still had Kobe and Howard for the whole season, both playing 71 games together. It would be one thing if it were those two guys missing so many games as opposed to Nash and Gasol, but thats not the case.

They went from being crowned the championship in the off-season / 4-peating, to must win games in April to make the playoffs.

the only thing i'm gonna say is, the same kobetards screaming championship cruise before season started are now the same kobetards making all kinds of excuses for the Lakers being mediocre.

but let's not forget the injuries. it did really hobble the Lakers' season. D Antoni also helped in bringing the Lakers down.

I'd consider carrying D'Antoni to the playoffs a success...
