Some of our players look confused out there and some look soft. Some both.

I think we need some brilliant coaching. It's too loose right now for these young guys.

was there a directive from Luke to freeze out Kuzma out there?

He has been asking for the ball a lot of the time and the other guys just keeps freezing him. Randle and Ennis specifically.


I've seen the same over and over again. He can explode on the scoreboard yet nobody looks to set him up.

I think KCP’s return will help a little bit defensively. Hence the words “a little”.

But I think our offense will still be a train wreck until Luke finds a way for us to consistently get easy buckets.


Bruv, KCP's return will hardly change anything. Ingram is the number one key to our failure.

He sucks. We saw it last year and we will see more of it in full display this year. The kid's shot is broken twice over.

He might as well sit out the entire season just to work on his shot to make it at least NBA-level worthy. I don't think his shot is even worth the G-league level. (bleep) Ingram for real.

The worst season opener I’ve watched in over 20 years.

Not impressed with the Clippers. They absolutely got worse without CP3.

We just suck really Bad.


That's the worst effort and execution wise in 30ish years or more. The Lakers have an excellent opener record since effin 91/2. Even the Threatt teams won in 92, 3, 4, ya know. Yowza. There was a bad one in 02/03 vs SA without Shaq, but at least the score was respectable.

Seriously, I don't think they could've played worse.


Don't challenge them.

it's like they had blinders on.

Kuzma had to hustle for his points tonight. (bleep) Luke doesn't know (bleep) if he can't tell his guys to run the offense through Kuzma if he is with the second unit.

I think the coaching is worse than the roster. This roster - in terms of its length, versatility, athleticism - has potential. But we aren't running an offense, we don't do the basics on defense, we don't hustle, we play guys who shouldn't be playing at all. It doesn't mean that Luke should be fired right away, but he needs to show some improvement himself. This is a disorganized, confused team on all levels.

They are a team full of playoff experienced vets. Hell, Lonzo didn't even play most of the pre-season. I'm not surprised the Lakers look unprepared.

You aren't the only person who notices that. The locker room does too.


Ingram was about as feckless as a supposed 6'10" pro hooper as midget troll Frankie Muniz would've been at less than half the height. You're pointing out his jumper, hell, he can't hit a point blank shot over a shorter player NOR layups. Kwame flashbacks all around the floor this night.

Beyond BI, we had The Tarman from Return Of The Living Dead in the starting 5 along with him. Deng needs to be put back into the drum.

Where is the versatility on this roster? Kuzma, Randle, KCP or Ingram on a good night...?

I think BI would be okay if he just focused on defense and moving the ball. But yeah right now he's the worst starter in the league.

Because he is a cerebral, champion, fun loving coach who bleeds purple and gold, knows what it takes to win night in and night out and can turn this offense into GSW lite overnight. Also blasts music during practice. Only fellow champion Steve Kerr has been known to do the same.
