    I see 2 things: They see they have to rush it which can be risky, they lost some games now. So i think they accept to go in play ins if it will go there. On the flipside it will give them more games and time to get back to its best with AD and LBJ back. And 2, the Nba world not gonna count on the Lakers, putting others as the favourites. So Lakers has no pressure, even if they are the holding champions. And if u see LBj talking about the Play ins, its like he is stressing it out but maybe thats the plan, ill take some time, we get back with no rush and build chem towards the end and into the play ins.

    Floyd 972Пре 10 дана

    Tell that to Tim Duncan and John Stockton... both men were effective up until the day they retired and each had 19 seasons and not only kept their team in the playoffs every year they were in the NBA, but there were effective players up until their final seasons and when you look at the stats per min played, they still were close to their normal career stats... (Stockton still playing a full 82 games putting up 10pts 7 assist at 40 years old in his finals season) Stockton is on record saying he retired so he could spend more time with his family. No known injuries or serious reduction in ability at retirement. Man holds two records that will probably never be broken in the steals and assist record and walked away the game on his own accord AT 40 for FAMILY. Gonna have to give John Stockton and Tim Duncan the nod over Father Time... these machines came to the game and made their teams relevant, and kept them relevant until the day they retired, while never sustaining a major injury. Who knows how long they could have continued playing if they WANTED to...

    That’s all it is. He’s a clown for that but his groupie fanbase will forever defend him. The same guy who came out with a hand cast after getting swept by GS. He’s saying that so in case he loses he can fall back on that “injury” excuse. Then if he wins his media can say how “he’s the goat bc he won with an injury”. He does so he can come off free of criticism but in reality people know what this fool is doing, except his fans.
