I've had false awakenings, which could be either good or bad. I've had a few experiences with sleep paralysis as well, which were never good.

No, it's Horus!

Lakers officially eliminated from NBA postseason contention by D'Angelo Russell and the Nets

It’s official: the Los Angeles Lakers have been eliminated from postseason contention and the NBA playoffs will be without LeBron James for the first time since 2005.

The Lakers lost to the Brooklyn Nets by a score of 111-106 on Friday, their 10th loss in their last 11 games and one that mathematically eliminated the team from the playoffs.

Of course, the Lakers were effectively eliminated long ago, but this season naturally had to come up with one last ignominy. This time, it was receiving the official elimination loss at home against a Nets team led by a player the Lakers had previously cast off.

Of course D’Angelo Russell helped eliminate the Lakers
D’Angelo Russell finished with 21 points, 13 assists and three steals to finish off his former team, another highlight in what has been a breakout season for the point guard.

Nearly two years ago, the Lakers traded Russell to the Nets along with Timofey Mozgov’s albatross contract to the Nets for Brook Lopez and Kyle Kuzma. The move was meant to make room at point guard for Lonzo Ball, who was shut down earlier this month with an ankle injury.

Another ex-Laker, Ed Davis, finished with 14 points and 15 rebounds for the Nets off the bench.

Funnily enough, the Lakers actually showed a lot more fight than usual in their current run of losses, but it obviously wasn’t enough. There was rarely a lead larger than five points for either team, and LeBron James finished with 25 points, 14 assists and nine rebounds in his return from a groin injury. However, he also shot a ghastly 8-of-25 from the field.

Where do the Lakers go from here?
The Lakers still have 10 games left to play, but with Ball and Brandon Ingram shut down and LeBron James on a minutes limit, their only incentive going forward is to lose and improve their lottery position. To do that, they could also shut down James, but pride could stop that from happening.

The Lakers now haven’t reached the playoffs since 2013, the longest drought in team history. It’s also the fourth longest active playoff drought in the NBA, behind only the Sacramento Kings, Phoenix Suns and Orlando Magic.

The team will enter this offseason with some hard questions to answer. Will the team be able to land another superstar alongside James? Are Ball, Ingram and Kuzma truly stars in the making, or would the Lakers get more use out of them as trade chips? Can they find an improvement from Luke Walton at head coach?

We’ll see the LeBron James show gets any better in Season 2.

LeBron James, Lakers Officially Eliminated From NBA Playoff Contention

From The Land to La La Land. The King hits Hollywood. All was supposed to be sunshine and palm trees for LeBron James and the Lakers.

Narrator: It was not.

The Lakers have officially been eliminated from the NBA playoffs after Friday's 110-106 loss to D'Angelo Russell and the Brooklyn Nets, officially ending James' run of eight straight NBA Finals appearances.

But that was in the Eastern Conference. The Wild West is a whole different ball game.

And still, this Lakers team that surrounded James with players like Lance Stephenson, Rajon Rondo, Michael Beasley and more, was supposed to challenge the Warriors.

Seriously?

The Lakers' downfall started on Christmas Day, when LeBron injured his groin in a win against the Warriors. At that point, Los Angeles was 20-14 and seemed destined for the playoffs.

But James didn't return from his groin injury until Jan. 31, and the Lakers went 6-11 in his 17-game absence. Shortly after he returned, the Anthony Davis trade rumors appeared to distract the team ... and it was all downhill from there.

The last time James missed the playoffs was the 2004-05 season ... his second in the NBA, when he was only 20 years old. But now at 34, he finds himself in uncharted territory.

All it takes is one offseason to turn things around, but the Lakers have a long ways to go if they're going to catch the Warriors. Or plenty of other teams ahead of them in the West.

Were you aware that the Lakers had DíAngelo Russell but traded him?

Itís been a dream season for DíAngelo Russell on the eve of free agency. He made the all-star team in the East, heís leading the Nets back to the NBA playoffs. He threw a signature performance onto the pile of goodness on Tuesday, too: Russell scored 27 in the fourth quarter to lead a 28-point Nets comeback on the road against the Kings to get Brooklyn back above .500.

Were you also aware that Russell was a member of the Los Angeles Lakers, but that Magic Johnson and Rob Pelinka traded him to open up salary cap space eventually used for one-year rentals for Rajon Rondo, Kentavious Caldwell-Pope, Michael Beasley, JaVale McGee, and Lance Stephenson? Itís true.

Russell finished with 44 overall, a career high. His thirst for buckets in the fourth was legitimately unquenchable: he shot 10-for-15 from the floor and 4-7 from behind the arc. And donít get it twisted: the Kings werenít tanking. They have no reason to do so, even though theyíre are out of the playoff race in the West. Russell did this to DeíAaron Fox and Buddy Hield and the rest of the Kings starters, for the most part.

He didnít do it himself, though. Jared Dudley hit the three to give the Nets the lead with a minute left. After Sacramento equalized, it was Rondae Hollis-Jefferson who hit the game-winning layup with a second left.

And then Russell talked that talk.

Lakers need winning offseason to move forward

Theyíll finish the season with a losing record and without a playoff spot as their legendary superstar deals with failure and their fan base does a collective head scratch over what went wrong and what size hammer just hit them.

But all that has happened to the Lakers in 2018-19 doesnít qualify as devastation.

No, devastation will be if they have a dreadful summer.

Lost in the turmoil of getting swept by the Knicks, LeBron James' groin pull, Lonzo Ball's ankle sprain, Brandon Ingram's blood clot and fallout from the proposed Anthony Davis trade is the forgotten reality that the Lakers were never built to do anything special this season. Challenging for a championship or even reaching the conference finals was never the goal or purpose. This team wasnít built that way. This was never a ďwin-nowĒ project, as much as the noise perhaps led you to believe.

This was always a ďwin-in-July-2019Ē project.

This season was an embarrassment, nothing less and certainly nothing more. Missing out on the playoffs was unexpected, but not damaging in the big picture. All it did was give talk shows some meaty material, mainly because LeBron was involved and for the first time since 2006 the gameís best player wonít be in prime time this spring or summer. Thatís all.

But if the Lakers lose big this summer, it could have far-reaching implications for LeBron, the franchise -- and all of it would be bad. There would be justifiable second-guessing, blown opportunities, broken promises, a front office under fire, maybe a strong reaction from owner Jeanie Buss and a fan base in uproar.

Most or all of the above will follow the Lakers into next season if they donít win the offseason. Plenty is riding on president Magic Johnson and GM Rob Pelinka making the right moves to maximize the remaining three years on LeBronís contract and make the Lakers title contenders. The Lakers do have certain factors in their favor -- ample cap space, the charms of LA, the presence of LeBron and just being a destination franchise -- and so it could work out.

Thereís also a worst-case scenario that would be nightmarish for all involved should all of the following happen this summer:

Anthony Davis Isnít Traded To The Lakers

The primary target in the Get Help For LeBron effort was always Davis, for understandable reasons. Heís a generational talent whoís still in his prime, he has already stated a desire to play for the Lakers and among superstars heís unassuming and therefore probably the best fit to play in the shadow of LeBron, which can be overwhelming for some.

The drawback is Davis, unlike a handful of other A-list players, isnít a free agent this summer. And while he has some leverage in where he plays next, the Pelicans own his rights for one more season and the ultimate decision rests with them.

Evidently, they believe they can get a better package for Davis than the Lakers offered at the trade deadline, perhaps because someone else whispered in their ear (cough ... Celtics, Knicks ... cough). The Pelicans are looking for a haul in order to save face and reshape a losing team and this summer buys them time and a clearer market.

The Lakers suffered a blow in the upcoming Davis auction when Ingram suffered his injury, which required surgery. Does that devalue Ingram to a degree in the eyes of New Orleans? Perhaps. And the Lakers donít have anyone to replace him in any proposal, since Ingram was the centerpiece to any proposal.

The Lakers Donít Get A Top-Three Draft Pick


The odds of them landing at or near the top spot in the June draft isnít very high, and will be probably be less than 10 percent once the draft order is determined in May. Itís just that with a high pick, the Lakers will own an asset to keep or trade for Davis. If there was ever a team that could use a frozen envelope, itís the Lakers. Oh, wait: The Knicks are back in the lottery, too. Never mind.

Kawhi Leonard Signs With The Clippers

This would qualify as a double-whammy. It would cross a free agent off the Lakers' list and meanwhile theyíd watch him go to the crosstown Clippers. Whatís more, it would mean Jerry West one-upped his former team. Make that a triple whammy, then.

Kevin Durant Re-Signs With The Warriors

Not only would the Lakers miss out on the top free agent on the market and someone whoís almost guarantee a changing of the guard in the West if not the NBA, KD staying with the Warriors would mean the Golden State dynasty continues. Therefore, even if the Lakers did get Davis (and strip themselves of a supporting cast in the process) they would still trail the Warriors in terms of star power.

Klay Thompson Re-Signs With The Warriors

This would be Durant Lite in terms of impact, but still.

Jimmy Butler And Kyrie Irving Sign With Anyone But The Lakers

Heís probably not a game-changing player and might not be the best fit next to LeBron. Still, while Butler isnít the most attraction option, he is a good one, and maybe a necessary one if the Lakers strike out in other places. Butler would be better than nothing. Meanwhile, itís hard to envision Irving reattaching himself to LeBron when he escaped LeBron three summers ago (and still hasnít given a coherent reason for doing so).

And thatís it. Should the Lakers whiff on three or more of these players, times will get tense in L.A.. Yes, there are solid free agents such as Kemba Walker, Khris Middleton, DeMarcus Cousins and others available this summer, and Mike Conley could be available in a trade. Yet they qualify as fallback Plan B players, not gotta-have players.

Remember, the Lakers and Magic gambled heavily just to put themselves in position to seize the summer of 2019. They traded DíAngelo Russell to the Brooklyn Nets because the Nets also agreed to take Timofey Mozgovís massive contract (in addition to sending a No. 1 pick to LA which became Kyle Kuzma). They didnít re-sign Julius Randle, their former lottery pick from two years ago. They also bailed on Lou Williams and traded promising young center Ivica Zubac, all because they didnít want to commit to any long-term money beyond 2018. Well: Randle, Russell and Williams are having career years and Zubac might be a starter next season. Not to mention, Brook Lopez is succeeding on the best team in the East.

Suppose the Lakers did all that Ö and didnít maximize the cap flexibility that came in return? It will have all been a waste, and a costly one at that.

Should the Lakers endure a summer to dismember, then theyíll be forced to scramble to pad the roster, pray that LeBronís body wonít fail him again as he turns 35 and hope Ball, Ingram and Kuzma produce breakout seasons. Thatís a lot of positive projections. It would be a best-case scenario on the heels of a worst-case scenario.

If you think the Lakers are catching hell now, well, a poor summer would mean thereíd be hell to pay.[/SIZE]
