When Kobe takes over it's a disaster for the team. I've heard so much about the "Princeton Offense" I'm ready to fade Princeton University basketball games. Lakers are a great fade team so far. When do you think this train will stop?

Eventually they will cover the spread next month - what game will it be?

In the month of November: @=Laker Home Court

WEEK 1

Sunday - Detroit @

Wednesday - Travel to UTAH

Friday - Golden State @

WEEK 2

Sunday - Sacramento @

Tuesday - San Antonio @

Friday - Phoenix @

WEEK 3

Sunday - Houston @

Tuesday - Brooklyn @

Wednesday - B2B TRAVEL to Sacramento

Friday - Travel to Memphis

Saturday - B2B Travel to Dallas

What do you think?

Right on Raph

The schedule dictates a home court advantage... at some point they'll be road underdogs - I'm looking as far down as Week 3 on the road

realistically  sunday SHOULD be their first straight up win. Can't wait to see that number

I completely agree they HAVE TO WIN Detroit because they're on the road to Utah after and that's no picknick - they always lose at Utah - and then there's Friday vs GSW

But will they cover on Sunday v Detroit? -3.5, -5.5? What do you think it'll be? If it's -7.5 does the fade continue? Where do you draw the line?

I've got dibs on the Phoenix game.  

It's bad when I'm a Lakers fan and I have started to print shirts in Purple and Gold that say " Shut Up and Play D" and "Kobe Just Shut Up and Win"  Jerry West, Kareem, Magic, Jordan, Wilt, Bird, Dr. J... none of them told their fan bases to Shut Up, or called them Dumb in the media.  What a complete idiot.

I think at some point this team is going to either start clicking by Christmas or February. That's hell or high water. Until that happens, I'd like to reiterate the question and invite all posters to voice an opinion.

OK - They are now 1-4 (btw 1-4 ATS) Next game is against Golden State at home on Friday. Say it settles at -3.5 Lakers early after a -3, -2.5 shift on GS early on...

Any thoughts, comments welcome! BOL

So it opened -6.5 vs GS. At some point there will be an all out Laker blitz on a lesser team like Sacramento on Sunday if they lose or only cover on Friday against GS. If it doesn't happen this weekend (it's not gonna happen hosting the spurs on tues) Look to next Friday hosting Phoenix..
