If the Lakers aren't careful, they could miss the playoffs entirely. They're 1 1/2 games up on both the Clipps and the Warriors and play Phoenix next. I'm almost sure they'll lose there unless Phoenix plays it's spares. Then they follow with Seattle and Sacramento. I'd love nothing more than to see the Lakers miss the playoffs.
Well, thats the problem with the Lakers and alot of other teams. They may be teams, but one or two players have to do EVERYTHING. Infact, Kobe played the WHOLE game. I don't recall him ever resting. Even if they make it to the playoffs, how's Kobe going to handle the pressure combined with all of the extra playing time?
