Overall just so many dumb fouls and missed free throws. Hard to ask for more made threes with no shooters, they had their chances just let it get away.


When BI struggled offensively in past, he made up for it by excellent defense. But he's not playing as good defense so far, or rebounding as well.

I think Walton changed a lot of these guys roles this year, and one can sense players like Kuzma and BI are having hard time adjusting. BI seems most frustrated out of bunch.

Not me. It’s a known fact we have one of the worst home crowds. A historic debut can’t even get pretentious Hollywood folks out of their seats.


Depends on the game, and atmosphere, honestly. For me personally, the game has lost a bit of its excitement. But Staples was on fire for Kobe’s 60 in his final performance, and pretty much all season long that season for every shot he hit.

We’ve also been solid in the past in the playoffs, but we’ve never been one of those teams that wears all purple or gold shirts like other arenas in the post season with their specific colors.


Well it’s not even true that there was lack of energy in the building. That is so tired. People were screaming the whole game people stood up the first several minutes of the start of the game people were screaming LeBron the whole game when the fight happened we started chanting Rondo… I could go on but basically just No.

Lakers saying Rondo didn't spit.

Quote:
@wojespn

Sources: Lakers officials watched tape and are backing Rajon Rondo’s contention that he didn’t spit on Chris Paul. Meanwhile, CP3 and Rockets are insisting that Rondo did spit. “Lot of history between them,” one source connected to both players says.


Here is video. If Rondo spit I don't see it here. Possible sweat or just saliva landing with two guys arguing right next to each other. If Rondo did spit he did it very nonchalantly.

It seems louder when you are there in attendance. When you watch on TV, our debut home game sounds like a preseason game in comparison to arenas like Boston, Portland, Philly etc. The energy in those builds are much better. Louder, more people standing... just overall much more involved crowds than ours.

These first two games are the best defense of his career. Flat out.

I’m happy to hear that, really want the fan base to exude that kind of excitement.

The NotHype dude is a straight troll.

Rondo maybe but Ingram doesn’t have a rep so he may get a “warning” of 2 games.


Rondo got contact to the face and responded while Ingram ran over and threw a punch, so it's hard to predict


Could be. All I’m saying is Ingram may not get the book thrown at him because he’s always been the quiet, passive type. We’ll see though.


Right. Lots of factors so I think it is hard to predict. MWP got 7 games right? for the Harden elbow, so hopefully he doesnt get 7.

Did you not watch the game? Do you not watch other teams play? The building was silent for many periods of the night. There was some roars early in the game then it took a brawl for the crowd to come to life.

I salute Rondo. Video only shows CP3 provoking him and Rondo putting him in his place.

I do realized how hilarious it is that I was very mad at Rondo last year for starting crap with Isaiah.

Wait a minute, kcp signed a 2 year deal? Wtf


It's a one year deal


He means dating back to last season.

For the second year in a row, he's our 2nd highest paid player. Has he ever been even our 5th best player?

Please no...

“PEANUT BUTTER AND JELLY!”

“SAINT VINCENT SAINT MARY!”

“KING JAMES WITH THE MESSAGE FROM AKRON TO CLEVELAND!”

PLEASE NO!

We’re the Lakers, we don’t need championship rings ascending from the ceiling with reversible tips or whatever the hell that was over in Golden State where the all season all star team is located.

I think the league sends a message, and slaps Ingram with 5-7 games. Wouln’t be surprised if they give him 10. That sounds crazy, but I wouldn’t be surprised.

1. The spit came from the Ref blowing whistle
2. It was Melo

Hopefully they take in to consideration the need to protect LeBrons image. 10 games without Ingram won't make it any easier to win games.

Well it’s not even true that there was lack of energy in the building. That is so tired. People were screaming the whole game people stood up the first several minutes of the start of the game people were screaming LeBron the whole game when the fight happened we started chanting Rondo… I could go on but basically just No.


It seems louder when you are there in attendance.

Was Doris in the building or not? Because then she would’ve heard the same things I did. Whether or not it carries on TV is another story. But if she was in the building with me and she is saying it was low energy in the building I’m saying that’s incorrect and disingenuous. Sports media has various agendas about various teams and what is the tired continuous agendas about Los Angeles is we’re “Hollywood“ which is stupid because A of course we are, this is Hollywood but B it doesn’t mean that people aren’t into the games. That’s just a tired storyline. As someone who goes to games regularly it’s offensive quite frankly. That ticket to get in that game is nowhere near free so don’t tell me (media people, not you NotHype) I’m not a real fan and I’m not doing this and I’m not doing that I paid $5 billion a ticket to go see a Laker team that had Chris Duhon on Rob Sacre on it. Please spare me that I didn’t yell every second of every minute of the game.

It's Chris Paul. He probably flopped when sweat hit his cheek.

It's basically a finder's fee to Klutch for signing Lebron. Cost of doing business.

Well worth it to get Lebron.
