The Lakers chances of doing anything in the playoffs just ended with Kobe's
There are two games left in the season. The Lakers are in the last playoff
position in the Western Conference one full game ahead of the Jazz. The Lakers
have two home games (admittedly difficult ones) while the Jazz are on the road
for the last two games. In evaluating the season, I doubt this is where the Jazz
management thought they would be. Yet here they are, out of the playoffs now
with the distinct possibility of being a lottery team. Many have blamed Ty
Corbin for this position they are in but I think the blame is misplaced. The
Jazz management are clearly to blame by acquiring players this past summer that
no longer can compete in the NBA with teams that are younger, more athletic, and
faster. They have wasted their money on players with no future. In the end, they
have only themselves to blame for this debacle. If the Jazz does not develop
what younger players they have, get rid of the dinosaurs, and acquire good young
athletic players, they will ultimately lose the fan base they currently have.
The franchise will then die.
A tip of the hat to Big Al.
I'm happy the Jazz won, obviously. But, as much as I'm NOT a Kobe fan,
I am sad to see this happen to him. He has given so much effort, physically and
mentally, that you have to respect that. I want us to win, but not at that
serious of a reason. I hope it is not as dreadful as it looks.Go
Jazzboys in the final two!!
Jazz still need to win one or two games left. If both Fakers and Jazz lose both
Jazz will get #9.
