So sick of tanking.

Better find a way not to get embarrassed and have a Lebron-less, star-less Los Angeles team across the hall make the playoffs over you.

We're going to tank because Lonzo "Misses 3 wide open layups per game" Ball is injured? Right

Rondo is going be back soon, he's far better than Lonzo will ever be

That's real tough since Zo is already better than Rondo.

Depends on how we look with Lebron and Rondo, and how healthy our team stays.

If guys start dropping like flies we might plummet in the standings regardless of if we want to or not.

Assuming full health, we are easily a 2-5 seed in the West. Without Lonzo and with LeBron and Rondo at 70-80%, and assuming Kuzma and Ingram don't miss time (knock on wood), we're probably a 7-9 seed.

Laker-Tanking, like the NE Patriots and herpes, sucks but is impossible to get rid of.

Loser mentality. Four years of that (bleep) is enough.

One more injury to Bron and we'll be right there. Rondo can't stay healthy either.

I was skeptical about having an older LeBron here, but I never thought I'd see this. You went too far dude. We'll make the playoffs when LeBron gets back.

Rondo is better than prime Jason Kidd?

Ok bud.

Lakers will make the playoffs and unless they're facing GSW in the first round, they'll make at least the second round of the playoffs. They'll then use this to attract a FA next year

Tank and there's no guarantee we'll get a good pick and we'll likely get no FAs next year
