Just created this account to say that even though we have gone 1-3 since Lebron and Rondo went out im very encoutaged with how the team has played despite pulling my hair out for majority of those games. This team just needs to hit their FT's to be honest...Like seriously FT's dude im going crazy.

Other than that im proud of the progress the young ones are showing.

Lonzo Shut Westbrook down this game and is a jumpshot away from being special.

Just bowled up the OG Kush, and I’m back to zen state. Visions of The Triangle fly me off to dreamland.

Welcome to LG, and thank you for bringing some positive light, it’s been hard lurking LG, so I’m glad there are people who are encouraged with this team as I am

[quote="phxraida15"]Lakers should trade BI as soon as possible. Dudes never gonna be good, he will never be an All-Star/ Max player.

I'm in agreement...but check out Lonzo's numbers tonight:

35 minutes played
3 points
4 rebounds
7 assists

You can't have a starting PG in this league play 35 minutes and score only 3 points. You just can't.

That is the problem with Ball, he seems to have a problem staying aggressive and tends to disappear like a ghost in long stretches, It’s tough cause it’s obvious he has offensive talent, but just doesn’t capitalize.

They really tried to clown us at the end, especially grant dunking their last points, with the game decided-You could hear tyson saying something to him about that.


Classless move.

Thunder being classless isn’t a shocker, especially since they have nothing better to do when they have to endore playing in a crappy city like Oklahoma.


Don't like it...? Then stop bending over in the 4th quarter and letting the other team walk all over you. Start closing out games!

I agree, the ball froze in the 4th and it just a bunch of 1-on-1 plays, Stu even claimed that it was to much ISO, we almost had it, but it’s pretty tough having scorer A and B not being with you in the 4th.

You trade him and get the most you can well he's still have some value.


Its too late now. He's been exposed just like DLO, JR, etc. Maybe we get a late first round pick and some (bleep) 1year contract. Should have done it last year


Im really not sure whether this is serious or not, but ironically DLO and JR played each other tonight, so you can judge whether either one of them could have helped us tonight.

Color me perplexed still at how this team just completely sucks from the charity stripe. Make your free throws and this is a different ball game.

Hes obvious to figure out. He needs to play at a fast speed to be effective. If he hits a three and his first couple of shots, his confidence goes up and he plays fast. As soon as he slows down to a normal speed, he likes to just go and stand in the corner.

LeBron has to know that the longer he sits out, the more the Lakers playoff hopes diminishes correct?

IMO if Kuz had been able to return in the second half we would have won this game. Hopefully he gets back sooner than later.

I seldom posts in the game thread because it's so negative. I haven't posted for a entire game this season. When Rondo and LeBron come back we'll be OK. This young team put up a fight but FTs and inability to close is troubling.

Zo had 3 points, if the Lakers could get a PG that could say average 11 points

they would have won this game...

Hey Zo -hopefully the Shoes and Rap music are doing well, because if your NBA career was a corporation, it would be bankrupt!
