These lineups are Bass-Kelly bad. Yeah I went there.

This is hopefully the first and only time he uses it - with Black/Nance/Randle out, deciding to experiment in a loss. But who knows.


You mean it wasn't immediately obvious to him that it is a terrible idea??

It should've been, but I guess he thought "f it, why not?"


Haha, he certainly has a sense of humor.

Would have been nice to see him experiment with a lineup combo a sane person would use tho.

Trade everyone.
Burn it all down, i want total clean house.
Buss family, sell the lakers.
Fire Mitch.
I can't wait for some documentary filmmaker to do a doc on how the NBA screwed the once great lakers, I almost don't want to go to games so the team will lose money and not profit share with the other teams loser whining owners.

It was close until Luke did his usual of keeping in Lou/JC too long and then putting DLO last. He seems to be worse than Byron in this stretch. Not watching anymore games if this type of BS continues.

Glad Chis McGee brought it up. It was a winnable game until Heurtas was subbed out (although he didn't say that).

Yes. 26 after Christmas Day

It's shocking. But they've been spot on if not favorable for years on our projections.

I think they'll hit a hot streak here or there, especially after the A-S break when better teams start chilling before the playoffs and the schedule loosens up. But 25-30 wins is an easy bet.

Yet they can't predict the huge amount of viewers they are losing due to cord cutters, the losses now are in the millions

Young players can be ruined by losing. but i think the same can probably be said for young coaches.


He's getting the team to play hard most of the time.


We've lost 12 of 13, many to the worst teams in the NBA. Did you think we were going to lose all 13 but the hard play allowed us to win one?


And out of those 13 games I wouldn't even need to look at the fact that we were missing key players in most of those games, no team in the NBA can win consistently without a full roster on display.


So were many of the teams we faced. You're offering up an excuse, not a reason.


That's not a excuse, it's hard to build cohesiveness with a young team having no chemistry cause players aren't building bond on the basketball floor.. we need guys to play and built a identity with injuries that's not possible.

RIP Laker defense.

Don't even feel like complaining about Lou on Peyton tonight. Didn't even bother to put his hands up. He is who he is at this point. Sell high before his stock drops.

You'll never be able to convince me, that there is a good reason to lose 12 of 13 games. As I said before, even Byron the tank commander couldnt do that.
