I took in a Nets game while visiting friends in NYC a few months back and for $100 had a seat pretty close to the Nets bench. All I can say is thank the lord we got rid of Russell. This dude must have ADD because he never paid attention to the coach during timeouts or seem engaged. It was ridiculous no one yelled at him.


I don't know how much you can take from this, seems like a fairly common thing to see from NBA players.

Wow, even Bulls fan thinks BI is good enough not to be traded.
I wonder what people outside of Lakers fans really think of BI.
From what I've been hearing in the media, it's a totally different take from what it was from year 1. Year 1, people were down on him. But this year, I hear a lot of "He's good. He's improved a lot."

Nice. Can someone bust out the measuring tape. Has his legs gotten thicker?
One advice, BI: change that hair! Remember what happen to Russell.

It would be absolutely stupid to trade any of BI, Lonzo, Kuzma or even Hart before you see how they look for 20-30 games next season. Itís not like theyíll be less valuable at that point.

It would also be stupid to let Randle walk over draft picks or young guys not mentioned above. What he brings to this team cannot be replaced by anything available this offseason and he will be a important part of a deep playoff run.

BI, get those 3 pointers going this summer. Show LBJ that you can be a reliable shooter and join the dynasty!

Yep, any scenario with trading Ingram or Randle or both to get LeBron is not a dynastic one. He's 1-4 in his last 5 Finals and going on 34. There is no 'dynasty' in his future, his a 2 year run where he hopes to squeeze out maybe one more Championship and then bolt.

And if BI stayed, I personally in BI's shoes, wouldn't be looking forward to standing in a corner all game waiting for a pass and having to give up the most effective part of my game which was getting to the basket in order to placate LeBron, while also being relegated to the bench.

I'd be far more excited about Paul George being the wing-man next to me than GM James showing up.

It's good to see BI performing and playing again.

I want PG and now LBJ and I'm willing to give up Alex Caruso and Zu...I can be insanely reasonable.

Great point.
Get rid of the 2 guys that showed more in their rookie seasons than BI did his.
Just keep all 3.

You can show more but does that mean you keep wanting more?

BI made great strides his 2nd yr.

And like BI, I think we need to see what kind of progress our rookies make going into year 2.

Lost cause. I think it's been scientifically proven that you can't improve and post on social media in the same offseason.

The pups are young.. They're going to post on social media, we're living in a different era guys. Haven't heard any reports about Kuz or Ball being slackers. I'm just going to assume they're working their asses off until I hear otherwise.

I think back on when the team gelled, was healthy, and won 12 of 16 before injuries got them again.

If they had the guy in this video, catching and willingly shooting umpers, along with Julius who is practicing Dreamshakes and Durant-esque turn around jumpers from distance, that's a guaranteed playoff team...last year. They would have beaten the Warriors in the close games they lost (at least 3?) and many others.

With Hart's late season improvement, that's a really good team. Kuzma and Ball showing any improvement at all makes this a dangerous team for anyone else. Add the appropriate mix of f/a's without destroying chemistry, along with a rotational #25 pick, and this team is immediately competing for rings, just like with the addition of Pau in 07/08, from where I sit, IMHO.

Wish the youngin didnít get hurt. Wouldíve liked to enjoy watching him a few more games at the end of the yeAr.

With pg and Lebron possibly coming..I really think Ingram will be a trade piece for the 3rd star. He has the most value. Sad cause heís my fave laker.

Wonder if him being MIA and not in LA has to do with him kinda knowing his time could be up.
Kuz himself did say Ingram fell off the map and he even posted on IG saying whereís BI? Lol
