Poll questions surrounding the Lakers' start

Even when the Lakers go undefeated, Lakers fans find something to complain.

Not everybody averages double-digit scoring averages. They need somehow to convince the Magic to accept a straight-up Luke Walton for Dwight Howard deal. They need to find a remote control so they can just fast-forward to the playoffs.

So just imagine how Lakers fans must feel about this current Lakers team. Their 12-9 record puts them in the eighth seeding for the playoffs should the season end today. They have gone 2-7 on the road. Despite a 1-1 season-split, the Clippers (11-6) remain the more exciting L.A. team. Outside of the Lakers' Big Three in Kobe Bryant, Andrew Bynum and Pau Gasol, the Lakers lack depth. 

Surely, the Lakers have plenty to say. So to get that conversation started, vote in a series of polls below the jump. I'll then follow up Tuesday with an analysis post on the results.
