Hey, this Houston coach looks familiar. I've seen him somewhere before.


I know where you won't see him

The finals



Are you talking about the Rockets or the Lakers? lol. Rockets might go all the way this year. Maybe Luke is a good coach and our team is just bad. We never know.

Not to dump on the kid, I've supported him up until recently. BUT he needs to log some G league time until he can learn to play with the big boys. Magic and Rob need to swallow their pride and let the kid develop. He is a massive liability.

watching him earlier, I thought he was better then this. however, he's been all over the place for a while now.

He’s better than Clarkson, but yea not a starting level player right now.


Agree with this

Was Kuz this bad that hes not even considered starting level? Over Nance? I just saw he had 22 and 12..

Didn't he have 5 fouls? Not his best night.

Probably. I always said sports is fixed like that. They love trying to help a cinderalla story.

Personally I just rather anyone other than the Warriors and Celtics win the title. Warriors bandwagon groupies annoy me and obviously no explanation needed for the green team

My guess is Magic will let Ball play through it. He probably doesn't want to send the message to free agents that the presumably star-in-the-making point guard can't cut it.

Magic threw Lonzo to the wolves too early. Now it's going to hurt his confidence and development going forward. The problem is if we demote Lonzo to D League, then we don't have much better alternative either. It was a terrible all in plan by Magic. Lonzo or bust and so far, it's bust.

How are people talking (bleep) about Kuzma. The kid is a rookie that’s still learning defense. He got 22-12 tonight, granted a good chunk of it was in garbage time, but he still shows a more complete offensive game than anyone else on the team. He averaged 18-8 as a starter on a good percentage and people here are saying he’s not a starter level player. Who is then? Cause the starters are all certified bricklayers outside of Ingram and even his outside shot can be suspect. He was guarding Harden tonight and doing ok, about as much as anyone can while guarding Captain Whistle. Lay off the kid and shift the focus on the fact that the turnover numbers are not going down at all due to the lack of any discernible offensive system implemented by the amazing coaches we got holding those clipboards that they only use to play tic-tac-toe on.

The rockets were just picking on him on defense. They were forcing him to switch onto their guards and then they just had their way with him.

Now that she got her way, we never seem to hear from her anymore.

This is the time when Luke should have Lonzo practicing his shot.
Don't get why he doesn't play Bryant or Zubac. He's developing either players who won't be here or journeymen. Idiot.


Lonzo had a tight calf going into tonight, no reason to aggravate the injury


Luke just said that it was his decision that Lonzo didn't play, so it wasn't the injury in this case.

I'm not sure the g league would really help Lonzo. It's a fast paced, no-d league where he could succeed playing the same game he is using now (kind of like summer league).

I can't see the Lakers making a significant deal to help for this season if he has negative ramifications (like adding cap space) next year. So I question whether they could make a deal that will really matter all that much.

John asked Kuz something about the turnovers in the last two games and Kuz replied “...I don’t know. You asked me that last night...

Lol
