Hope he comes back against Miami so he can destroy Winslow.

Kuzma had a good game tonight, and Randle's actually found a new gear since BI went down. IT is starting to find his shot again. i really wish Ball would. But Lonzo is still playing defense.

I've got to give a bit of credit to Luke for taking what he has for a roster and finding a way to win games. Now we're seeing Lopez and Randle out on the floor at the same time, and now that Randle isn't feeling sick anymore that's a tough combo to face with the pace we play at.

I caught that sound bite on BI's return late in the game as well. Reevaluated Thursday. My guess is it's 50-50 BI is back for Miami on Friday, and pretty good odds he returns this coming weekend.

The playoff hopes went out the window as soon as Winslow pulled that dirty move on BI. At this point, they need to approach his issue with caution and not risk further injury. I hope they sit him however long they need to. Next season is looking bright right about now, and we need BI for the long haul.

Tired of this baby-ing. Just let guys play. The team rules guys out without even evaluating them. Like what the (bleep)...

I'd much rather them be overly cautious. And we don't know it's "overly" to begin with as we don't know the inside details.


It's overly cause even before Lonzo came back, he said he was ready and could play right now but the team is just waiting t'ill after the break. I bet if you ask Brandon, he would tell you he can play right now. Their logic probably was "Oh the Cavs are down 3-4 guys, we can buy ourselves a game by resting Brandon here".

I guess every player with a bit of competitiveness would tell you that he can play. Kobe probably would have said that with three broken legs...

Playoff hopes were already out the window, we're too far back. The Lakers are 3-2 in this stretch without Ingram with this schedule:

@ San Antonio
vs Portland
vs Orlando
@ Denver
vs Cleveland

That's pretty good. Maybe they go 4-1 instead, but that wouldn't have mattered in terms of the playoffs. We're 6.5 games out of the 8th seed with 16 games to play.

Not to be greedy or nothing, but I'd like to know what a 40 win season feels like again... But we are playing well and that's all that matters.

I rather see Deng play and play well than us trying to make the playoff. I enjoy the wins but it would be nice if Deng plays well and show some pulse so we can sent him packing without much casualty instead of just simply stretching him. The goal for the rest of the season should be hopefully no injuries and our young guys get into rhythm and Deng shows some life.

You think Deng playing well for a few weeks would have an impact on team's willingness to absorb him at 2 years/$36M?

I am overly optimistic of course but a couple of future first should do it. It would be easier to entice team though to get to talk if he show some life.

Same here. Friday would sure be nice. Again, provided Winslow keeps his knees to himself.

does anyone want to contribute to my funds for a Tiny Dog jersey? If so, I promise I will get the custom one and put 'Tiny Dog' on the back instead of his name

I got good seats to Friday’s game so I demand that Ingram is back and someone takes out Winslow’s knees or I want my money back, Magic

I think we win against Miami with or without him as well. Randle is holding the fort, Kuzma is slowly playing better and there is always Zo keeping the ship steady.


Don't think GSW is a loss.

Steph is out and Klay and Iggy are questionable.

Inspector wanted Ingram to finish the season averaging 26/7/7 or something ridiculous like that

Speaking of Klay, he would be the perfect fit for this current lakers team

Ingram's RPM has dropped from -1.3 to -2.0. This is through no fault of his own -- the team has played well in his absence and the stat has figured he's probably not that important. In reality, this Lakers just is really impressive in how people step up as guys get hurt (unlike last year's team). We have no wing depth and we continue to win as KCP steps up, Lonzo plays more 2 alongside Isaiah, etc.

This post really has nothing to do with Ingram, come to think of it. Lol
