Sadly if we wait for Bron and Rondo to get back we will end up out the playoffs...This is the West...Loses are monumental no matter who we play.

Well we are missing our two best players


LOL! Rondo as our second best player isn't comforting. These #2 picks not grabbing the mantle is concerning. And these boys should show Lebron that he made the right decision by beating the Cavs without him. This is embarrassing, probably for Lebron too.

I don't know about you... but I could.

I said nothing after New York... but this was absolutely unacceptable.


Yeah. I’ve been indifferent on keeping Luke or not but very vocal on needing to change his coaching staff.

I have to chime in and say don’t forget they fired Thibs after a win. And they fired Dwayne Casey after he won coach of the year. So...

Oh and where are the ones who said this would be an easy win and jinxed us like always. No team is an easy win for the Lakers at the moment...NO TEAM IS AN EASY WIN!

Mr. Luke Walton is between a rock and a hard place. If he doesn't go off on his players, they won't respond to him and they'll play like they did tonight. If he gets angry and yells at them, they will tattle on him to Earving "Magic" Johnson, thus giving Mr. Johnson the ammunition he needs to get rid of Luke. Luke needs to keep on his players good side, or else he's unemployed.

Imagine if we had Doc as our coach? He would make the team thrive right now without LeBron... because he knows how to utilize players.

Doc actually has a good team overall. I dont get why people act like clippers are a bad team. They have legit talent on that squad.

Its just not fair to Luke, though. Put the blame on the players.

When you see Popovich lose Kawhi... start out poorly and make adjustments... you see what a coach can do.

I get that LBJ and Rondo are out... but we played 12-4 for a stretch last January.

No excuse to lose to bad teams over and over.

Could it be possible that without Bron, the Cavs are actually better than us?


Not when their best player is out also.

Coaching is a brutal business.

If he stays... I'd like to see some sign of consistency and fight.

They are behind and just slowly dribbling the ball down the court like they are protecting a lead.

That's why the Lakers haven't had a winning season under Jeanie. She's never been on the basketball side of the Lakers. When her dad was still in charge, she was always taking care of the administrative stuffs. Now she's tasked with making basketball related decisions and she's been terrible at it. From extending Kobe for his last two years to keeping Jim Buss in charge for many years to being loyal to Luke, she just doesn't have a basketball mind like her dad did.

Yeah but they should be doing better than losing to the Knicks and Cleveland.

I'm just venting... but this is the first time I've really had it with Luke.

We've needed a reliable, consistent, 3 point shooter all year. All the shooters we have are streaky

It's everything. When your players wont even give you effort on the floor there is clearly something wrong with the team.

And FO is a joke bunch of old heads still living in the past of how the game used to be played. Why did you get Lebron if you didn't bother with shooters?What is this team heading for? Because i dont see a bright light anywhere. Are we going to depend on Lebron to take us all the way? Thats not the way i want things to happen. We need a future for when Lebron is gone and im seriously starting to wonder how things will pan out. Should have hired competent staff instead of paying tribute to Legends by giving them too much.

This isn't all Luke but this team right now without Lebron to cover it up is showing it's true colours.
