It’s officially panic-time in L.A. for the Lakers. A few weeks ago, they put together a streak of about 5 wins in a row, but it’s been downhill since then. And with injuries to Dwight and Pau, it’s not a certainty they’ll make the playoffs. But team executive Jim Buss isn’t worried.
“I don’t know if we’ve had five games where all our players are playing,” Buss said. “When you have injuries like that, you can’t play enough games together to get chemistry.”
“How can you not believe in this team? This team is built to win and it’s a very, very solid team,” Buss said. “In my mind, we would not consider a temporary fix or blow it up. Why blow up something that we have a future with?”
“I’m still excited about the team but injuries have played such a huge part in this. I’m not frustrated with the players at all,” Buss said. “Am I upset that we might not make the playoffs? Of course.”
“To panic?” asked Buss. “No, we’re not going to panic.”
