For Lakers Ides of March Will Tell Story

I know, I know. I sound like a bitter columnist who is merely stirring the pot because the team he follows has failed to live up to the hype. But the truth is, as a fan, I still have a huge amount of faith in this squad.

There is something to said for talent and experience. The Lakers have both in spades
Until they get knocked off these are still the defending champions of the NBA. They still have unmatched skill and length along the front line to pair with the best closer on the planet. They have the best coach in the history of professional basketball. And yes, let’s face it, some pretty awesome fans.

For as jagged and mercurial as the Lakers have looked so far this year the fact remains there are still two acts remaining in this NBA season and the history books are far from written. Top seed or bottom it won’t matter where they Lakers are slotted if they come home with the hardware at the end of the day.

But the time for excuses is over. The second act starts now and along with it a march towards the title. The only question is, will it turn out to be a championship parade or a funeral procession?

My hope is it goes something like this:
