Josh Hart had 10 boards

Hart also played pretty good D and made good decisions..
he's looking a lot more confident lately

I like Hart, he's a bigger DFish. Kinda went under the radar because of Lonzo and Kuz. He's very mature, he'll be an upgrade from KCP next year.

I agree. And LeBron just bought his second home in LA, that says something.

I think I overheard what Lebron said.

Lebron "Hey tell your dad to send me the ZO2's"

Lonzo "I can get you a 25% discount if you sign with the Lakers".



Lebron: "I know your site says no refund, but where's my display case?"

I missed the first half and watching unified highlights thread, Brook missing two airball FT's is when the momentum, and our lead evaporated.


did you see everyone asking if he was ok....like he was concussed or something..

Think it's time to bench Lopez and move Nance to Center and start Kyle at PF.

you mean Randle to Center? Nance is usually terrible at Center.

I like Nance, but he can't really play C against most teams
he gets outmuscled too easily by real centers - although obviously he can play C against Kevin Love

Yeah, it says he's wealthy enough to buy multiple homes in multiple cities.

Lots of NBA players throughout the league own homes in L.A.

I highly doubt Lebron has any intentions on signing with a potential 25-30 win team. Its a silly thought but people like to dream around here.

Letting LeBron come and take Ingram's spot would be a terrible decision. Ingram is 20 yrs old and will be a top player in this league for many years to come.


1. I donít think Lebron is coming (but thatís imo).
2. I get what you mean. Ingram is one of these dudes that strangely many want traded. Heís like a legit candidate for blowing up somewhere else...I guess we as a fan base never learn.


Lebron wouldn't take Ingram's spot. I don't think he is coming either but if say both Lebron/PG came I would envision Zo, PG, Ingram and Lebron starting. With Lebron at the 4. Yes Ingram is 20 and he has a long career ahead. Lebron coming doesn't stop that.


Still, there's only so much money to go around and these young guys will be wanting their checks real soon. Plus what about Kuzma? See what I mean? It's not worth it in the long run. Losing sucks, but ruining a chance of what could be the next Warriors-like dynasty built thru the draft would suck even more.

How do you think GSW became a power house? By letting their draft picks develop and THEN acquiring more talent.


I guess we could be the next Warriors Dynasty? That seems like an extreme long shot though. We can also be a barely miss or barely make the playoff team for a long time. Essentially what the Blazers are probably going to be for the next few years.

If you have a chance to get Lebron/George and keep your key young guys then I think you do it every single time.


I don't like the Blazers comparison. The Blazers have two 6'3" score first point guards.

We have Lonzo Ball, a 6'6" PG that makes his teammates better )who already puts up triple doubles. (20 yrs old)

We have 6'10" Ingram who completely embodies the new wave of modern NBA stars-- long, athletic, can do it all on the court a Durant/Giannis type. (20 yrs old)

and we have Kuzma a rookie who's already made his mark as a pure scorer who's only going to get better and more well rounded on the court... you're telling me this trio isn't the next dynasty? I ain't buying.

We don't need to sign 2 yr players who probably won't beat the Warriors anyways.

Hopefully not. I still don't see why ppl want a 33 yr old who's liable to leave the next year or 2 and ruin our salary cap + the development of what could be the next dynasty with Ingram Kuzma and Ball.

I promise Laker fans are not thinking clearly.

Everyones all caught up in this LeBron hype.. it's simple what the Lakers need to do.

Get a REAL center- DeMarcus Cousins
Get some players who can shoot the damn 3.

Then let Ingram Kuzma and Ball develop into the stars that they will all be.

Lakers fumbled & failed to complete so many chippy buckets off of Zo's assists it was sickening.
