By Cindy Boren

Their defense is horrendous, their legs are getting older by the possession and their interest level fluctuates between bored and horribly bored.

Yikes. That's the kind of stuff people, like Mike Bresnahan of the Los Angeles Times, write when, after putting a 55-point beatdown on the Cavaliers, the Los Angeles Lakers lose 104-99 to the LeBronless ones in Cleveland.

("Only Egypt has seen a bigger turnaround," Mary Schmitt Boyer writes.)

Kobe Bryant wasn't talking to the media for a second straight game. Phil Jackson had 180 seconds of analysis to share with reporters. Ron Artest had, well, other things on his mind.

An All-Star break may be just what these guys need. Especially John Ireland, the KCAL 9 Lakers reporter and KSPN radio host who promised to walk home from Cleveland if the Lakers lost. (Note to Ireland: take the southern route.)
