On a positive note, we are to the point now where just being competitive every game is not good enough...

Still need shooters desperately.


Yeah, just hoping we could take that next important step of actually winning games. Losing by 2 or by 20 is still a loss at the end of the day. Once it comes time to signing free agents, that's what they look at, wins and losses.

We are very close to being a good team... one winning streak could change everything... hard as that might be to imagine.


We can catch a streak, but we are too poorly constructed to be actually good.


I think we are mentally weak, but physically talented... in my opinion you can change that enough to be decent. Not enough to compete for championships... but enough to make the playoffs. Add one player... or if one of our guys truly emerges... everything changes.


We kinda like how Minnesota was last year - competitive but couldn't close out games.

Sad part is we're not even trying to tank this year so all the losses are legit. So we're legit a lottery team but without the lottery pick. There's no more excuses for losing. Get gud or get fired, Luke!


Do you want luke to go out there and shoot their fts for them? If we were even an average ft team we’d have like 4 more wins...that’s about talent, not coaching. The roster has crap shooters, crap shooting is the result


Well, Luke is partly responsible for the personnel on the team as well. Remember, Moz was his idea.


I can live with Moz if we get that other dude back who can create.


Lonzo is actually decent. I mean if you ignore his horrendous shooting percentage, he's actually a very good player considering everything else he can do. DLo is almost completely opposite of Lonzo. He can shoot but can't do much else especially defense.


Not a knock on Zo. He just needs some shooters who can create. Dlo could score and open the floor for a pretty lousy lineup.

Yep... you can see the framework coming together... I enjoy watching every game despite the painful losses.

Nah, the guys are tough and game, they just lack experience, scoring talent under duress, and a scheme to help them.

holes? weaknesses? sure....but I think it has a lot to do with youth, and missing that one exceptional talent down the stretch of games

Two of those three should be improved by next season... Things are still looking up for us.

Really bad game I would say. Bad coaching again. Bad officials. Really bad decisions at the end of the game. Another lost season. Hope that few guys will at least prepare for next one.

This is all but a lost season. We have several rookies playing starters minutes. Can't expect them to win much. It is a learning season. I know we are all tired of them, but here we are. At least there is a huge progress from last year.

This is how our players pay tribute to Kobe? Get rid of all of them except Zo! Fire Luke, make Lavar the coach, bring in Lebron, Cousins, and PG13

Zo
ringchasing 2 guard
PG13
Lebron
Cousins

2018-19 champions led by Coach Lavar Ball

Maybe yes but I am so tired of losing games. Starting to lose interest. I know patience is the key but still. Hard to watch.

And typically the JC wrongly called for passing to self goes unnoticed. It clearly hit the rim idk what the refs were thinking as it clearly changed directions. Game doesn’t go to overtime if that’s called correctly.

The team has shown promise in some areas but needs vast improvement in others. We are about where we were expected to be during this stretch.

As long as this young team continues to work hard and compete, on a consistent basis, the wins will come.
