If AD plays tomorrow I can already read the headlines. If we win the game means nothing as the Clippers didn't have Lou Williams and Montrezl. If we lose then it means that the Clippers will win in 4 or 5 as they are clearly the superior team.


To be fair, that is fair.

Great to get a win purely to separate ourselves from them in the standings, but a win against them without Lou or Harrell doesn't mean too much.

That 3rd quarter was special. He was EVERYWHERE willing us back in the game.

Dude was channeling 2003 Tim Duncan.

He’s going to have to average 30+ in a potential series against the clippers.

Barkley is spot on that AD will have to be the difference. He has to outperform George. Lebron and Kawhi will cancel each other out in most matchups. Tonight was a rare exception where Kuz picked up some of the Lebron ppg.

Cant wait to see him in his first PO where he will have real chance to win it all. So far he really never had that chance. Now its time to play with purpose and fire for ring. Hope he is up to it.

Am I the only one that sees how similar AD's defense is to Bill Russell in the winning plays he makes? He always tends to make sure that when he blocks a shot, he makes sure to keep it on the floor and not swat it out of bounds so the team can get out in transition on offense. He is really incredible on defense, no player in the league can blow by him when he switches onto or has to guard a perimeter player and times his blocks so well. Also, an underrated part of AD is just how hard he plays on the court and plays with a high motor, never scared to dive for the ball or mix it up, even though at times you get worried he might hurt himself. AD legit might be the most talented big man and is still getting better even more as an all around player.

I think the Clippers are the only team we need AD to outperform LeBron.

He is a very good basketball player.

I loved BI/Zo but they're not championship ready just yet (may be in a few years). With LBJ on board, AD is a perfect guy for him.

Yes. The clippers are built to bother Lebron as much as possible, wear him out. AD has to play like an alpha superstar that can’t be stopped by a team that has no matchup answer for him.

Welcome back, E

Yeah, BI needs that Kobe green light, which he would never have on a LeBron team. Zo tries to mimics his game after LeBron. Unfortunately for Zo, LeBron can run an offense better until the day he retires. Both guys are in a better place for their games to grow.

It goes to show basketball people like LeBron know more than we do here on LG. LeBron knew all he needed was AD. When they get that pick and roll going no one will stop them.

Good to be back, bro! Glad the Lakers are back!

My hope was that the Pels were scared off by BI's condition and would take Kuz or some other player. But they rightfully took him. And the Lakers were chasing KL so they needed to make sure the outgoing salary would accommodate that.

Don't forget that Danny Boy kept his powder dry for four years to make a run at Davis only to have the Lakers gangster him away at the last minute.

No way he takes only 7 shots today if Rondo is healthy.

The guards on our roster need a better concerted effort to make him a factor on offense.
