I know its early, but I think our offensive system is unlocking Lance's play.


Seems to suit his game...so long as he keeps the TOs down.

I'm glad we're all enjoying this delicious Lakeshow Lance Crow pie.

This dude is simply electric when he's got it going. 8-0 run by himself late in the game and that beautiful bullet pass to Bron for the dunk. Born Ready is quickly becoming one of my favorite Lakers.


Playoff Lance is gonna be verrrry fun to watch, I can see him having a Ron Artest like Impact with us like Ron did with us in his 1st playoff as a Laker.

The Lakers looked dead in the water before Lance went off for 8 straight points He brings so much energy.

Good game for Lance, he needs to put together a series of these; but
a real good start.

Put some respek on this man's name, he is easily a fan favorite and I am glad he is on our squad. At first I was a little bit confused, he has been nothing but awesome during his short time here.

This. His ability to get to the rim is surprising. He's not an elite leaper (although he still has nice hops), but he attacks with so much speed that he covers so much ground when he does take off. I'm always taken aback when he jumps from one step inside the free throw line and gets all the way to the rim.

The one thing he is the best at on this team is taking a guy off the dribble. Combined with his strength it's a different look.

If he's not working it on a given night you can sit him. But he brings a change of pace.

I admit I was wrong about Lance. When he plays under control he's great.

It's the only role he's good at I just didn't expect him to get the opportunity. That's the only reason he sucked with the Clippers and Hornets. Only thing is I'm not sure him and Rondo can coexist.

I remember laughing at people who said they hated the Lance signing because it takes mins away from Svi.



I love this dude. It's a shame some people won't admit that they were wrong and will harp for days when he has a bad game or makes a few mistakes. He's been amazing for us.

He is 1 of the few who isn’t a all star but can play like it and help you win by his Impact on the basketball floor

Love how he's playing so far, I wasn't a fan of this signing at first but he's looked good since the summer and it really looked like he put the work in. He's proving all the doubters wrong so far, he wasn't even included in the pre-season poll for who would be the biggest surprise this season.

I mean he still kills our ball movement and isn't perfect, but he's a nice change of pace to have.

Great post. Championship teams are made up of these type of guys coming from the bench. Lance and McGee have been GREAT and I really hope we keep them after this year.

Both always had that all star talent in them even if they aren’t 1, you can see it when they play well and how good they are.

Before the season I started a thread asking what grades do you give for the FA's and Drafted players. I gave Lance a B-. And that grade was one of the highest. I also predicted he could be a fan favorite. Also I noticed during the fight last week Lance was playing peace maker. I'm glad to see him doing so well.

Good to see you guys being right about the signing before he played a game for us.

That was my poll and I just named off players randomly. I forgot Lance AND Rondo, not intentionally though.

I believed that he was the good shooter I saw him advertising himself as, but I didn't know if he would have an impact or what type, so I forgot him.

I was just saying last night that I hope they keep McGee for as long as they can. It's amazing he's playing for the Vet's minimum. He'll get a lot more $ next year.

Lance would be cool to have and keep now that he's learned to shoot. I originally suspected that the Lakers would showcase a player or 2 and then trade them for a real guy. I don't want to trade anyone at this point, but now it's clear that someone like him and McGee could fetch some real value in a trade package if they keep playing the way they are. I could see trading Beasley and ??? for the right piece in a championship run.
