Monday morning poll: The state of the fan

Sunday's loss to Orlando was the team's third straight, marking the first time the Lakers dropped three in a row since acquiring Pau Gasol in February of 2008.

It was bound to happen at some point, right?

But has the streak (modest as it is) altered your perceptions about their chances to repeat? Maybe you're concerned about deeper issues? Kobe Bryant seemed pleased Sunday afternoon despite the loss, saying the quality of effort L.A. delivered against the Magic would be tough for any team to beat four times in seven games.

Perhaps you agree. Maybe you don't. As always, your vote and your comments are welcome below.
