08:07 AM ET 01.21 | For his part, Steve Nash said Los Angeles was "lazy" and "cutting corners" in Toronto. The Lakers couldn't escape from the problems that have plagued them all season. It also appeared they didn't bring much energy along with their luggage over here, either. The Lakers' 108-103 loss Sunday to the Toronto Raptors at Air Canada Centre featured far too many snapshots of another effort gone astray. "We have too many issues," Lakers coach Mike D'Antoni said. The Raptors stormed out to an 11-2 run. ... Does [Kobe Bryant] believe the Lakers' front office needs to make a move? "No," he said. "Listen, if this is what we're rolling with, I can't make excuses. I have to go out there and do my job."

They should have just left Mike Brown coaching! At least they would have learned some defence!

If the Fakers were as relentless as these spammers, they'd be fine. I haven't stopped in for awhile, but I've noticed the haven't missed a beat.

I hate it when people complain about their responsibilities. You are the coach. If you have too many issues FIX IT. Whining about it to the media will not change anything. Get it together Mike - time's flying!!!

I kinda miss the old Lost whimsy. These thoughtful sober posts are not humorous at all. Get back! Get back! Get back to where you once belonged.

D'Antoni was a mistake from the beginning. Firing him however would mean admitting that mistake. Don't expect anything to change anytime soon.

Maybe a coaching change was the smartest move by Jerry Buss.

It's funny if you listen to the post game interviews... it's obvious who the problem is. A certain player (Kobe) keeps shooting his team into holes they can't dig out of.

Normally I would agree with this post, but we are discussing the NBA were the Stars wield more power than the Head Coach.

OK then... put D'Antoni at shooting guard and Kobe as coach.

Y're damn right bro... Part of being a man or woman is admitting to your own faults, saying sorry when you mistakes and most importantly fixing it. There's no shame in that. If Buss can swallow his pride and get Phil in there they may salvage the season. Otherwise the mistake lives on..
