Mitch did it! We finally got IT! Just the hard painful way! Bad contracts and losing young players. Did it Mitch!

Welcome to the Bench you over rated Derrick Rose broken down wanna-be. You are an absolute waste of a player and my hope is that you blow out your ACL so I don't have to watch you put on the Purple and Gold.


That's not nice, Dave.

I might be in the minority but I wanted IT back when he was in Sac and was practically begging to join. Maybe it was best that he didn't join since we got those early picks but now that he's here, I hope he does great.

This.

A motivated, underdog mentality IT who's playing for money with zero expectations is a great situation for us

I'm really pulling for IT. It must have been hell playing with that drama queen. If he has a tremendous run it will put the focus back on that overrated wuss. Kyrie leaves and has a great year, now IT needs to play great so everyone can see that lebron is not, and never has been a leader.

That hip isn't just going to fix itself in 30 games. He really should've had surgery and took the year off. I'd rather see a buyout and move on. Just a broken 5'8" malcontent who looks in the mirror and sees Michael Jordan.

Damn, why all the hate? This man is a Laker now, he's fam.

He can play alongside either Hart or KCP to balance off his difficulties on the defensive end.

Prediction: IT scores 15+ tomorrow and the haters all of a sudden change their tune.


I don't hate him at all, I just don't think he's healthy. And he's going to kill us if we give him big minutes. He won't have the offense to make up for his trash tier defense.

He rehabbed.
Is he still injured or is he just getting into game shape?
Tell me, doctor.

Listening to Windhurst on Mason and Ireland from this afternoon. IT was scheduled to return closer to April but he decided to try and come back early. Lou also thanked him for coming back early. I don't think we will see him near 100% this season.

#LAKERS. Remember #IsaiahThomas did Rehab for his Hip. NOT Surgery!His Journey has been impressive!#MVP


If he came back 2 months early, we may see him at 💯 one day this year. Hopefully.

Unless coming back early slows recovery time, which is what I was thinking.

LeBron said today that he hopes IT gets his bounce back.
Wishes him the best. Hehe. Not like we're gonna forget the video where they ignored each other in the Orlando game.

AFireInside619, is the LeBron thread the same as the FA thread?

Thomas was dealt from Boston putting him on tilt over the implications to his free agency. He decided to rehab his hip instead of have surgery. He came back too soon and has only played 15 games in an impossible situation as the facsimile of a top 10 player in Kyrie and in the powder keg that is LeBron who runs the offens which is the role Thomas had in Boston. He's an emotional guy himself and handled the whole thing as badly as you could.

What if he's really just another month of game action away from getting his mojo back? Is it really that hard to imagine? LA is going to put him in an up pace offense with a bunch of unselfish teammates and at least 12 mpg where he can start possessions with the ball.

I actually believe he could if he was healthy.. Some say he'll never be the same player he was with Boston.. Not sure how much truth there is to that.

who is that in the Purple hoodie around the 10 second mark that bends down to hug Thomas?

I think we will be pleasantly surprised. I just don’t think he felt right with Lebron and his game suffered. Here he will have that feeling like in Boston where he lead a young team.
