Fancap: The End is Near

When the final buzzer sounded last night, I just sat on my couch quietly. I didn’t feel like crying. I wasn’t angry. I just felt….nothing. Numb, like I was an empty shell.  I never expected the Lakers to be in this position.  This season seemed like it was following the same patterns as previous seasons: lots of highs, lots of lows, but with full confidence that The Switch would be in the “on” position when it counted.

To be fair, the Lakers are not actually finished yet and although no NBA team has ever come back from a 3-0 deficit, there is a first time for everything.  The pragmatic part of my brain knows that the season is done, however.  I can’t quite put my finger on it, but there was something different about this team. They didn’t inspire confidence that they would pull through.

This isn’t to say that I gave up on the Lakers- I never will.  I still held onto my unwavering faith that they would win in the end, and if they lost, that they would win in the playoffs once the “real season” started.

I know this sounds contradictory, and it’s difficult to explain.  The main point is that this year more than any other I was banking on my faith in their abilities rather than their abilities confirming my faith in them. How many 4th quarter leads did we squander? How many shots were missed at the buzzer? A lot more than I remember from any of the past four seasons…

Next: Appreciation

With you full force! Can’t explain what it this devotion LA has to this team but rather than doubt them we still have a spirit of “we can do it”. And the lakers are always with their backs against the wall and the stats saying No. So this one of our many Yes!

  • I love my Lakers and always will. It is also so disheartening to see them like this right now when all they need to do is get all the BS out in open and just support each other. Unless they can come together as a team then we are out this year, and it may be to late already, but I remain faithful.

  • Man o man you hit everything im feeling right now on so many levels! From just feeling kinda numb about the whole situation to just taking losing personally. Sometimes I forget that I’m not the only Laker fan out there, but it makes me feel better to know I’m not the only one screaming at the tv when they are on the verge of losing. I still have faith for our team because like you said, there’s a first time for everything, and if any team can come back from 0-3 deficit, it’s the LAKERS. Thank you for writing this Megan, it really did make me feel better.

  • As a True Fan for 30+ years, I know just how bless I am to have seen Magic & Kareem play, listen to Chick Hearn call 8 NBA Championship Seasons, and 6 Finals defeats. I stayed true after the 80’s Showtime Era, the painful seasons that were the 90’s, to Shaq & Kobe, Horry, Fox & Zen Master Phil 3-peat. Then two more losses in the finals and Kobe, Fisher & Mr. “11x Greatest Coach EVER” Jackson together again Back to Back Championships. I Love L.A. …. we may fall but we will rise again, I have lived through it and didn’t think it could happen again but it did. Thanks to the Buss Family the Lakers will always find a way to bring the City of Angeles a Champion. If you never lose how can you appreciate the win. 18 Finals Appearances in 30 years, what more do I want?

    Just 1 more than Boston. Go LAKERS!!!
