Lebron missed free throws all year when it mattered....but he nails 6 in a row tonight to win a meaningless game


I'm anti tank but I do think it's hilarious that he's suddenly become Steph Curry at the line this game Is it possible to be a streaky free throw shooter? I guess so!


no pressure tonight

If he played the Lakers every game he would have enough bricks to build a mansion.

a I will say it again...you think Luke gives a crap about the Lakers pick next year? He will be gone, so will Rondo, Lance, KCP, Chandler, McGee and most others that played tonight....so they do not care. Kuzma could care less....he wants to make sure he gets playing time next year....not allow the Lakers to bring in a better player.

At least last season we had Luke to drive the tank....not this year.

10th place gives us a 14% chance at a top 4 pick

6th place gives us a 36% at a top 4 pick.

But sure... the pride of random players who mostly will be gone next season is worth lowering our odds of getting Zion by a factor of three.

I do understand the laws of probability and the 6th pick has a 64% chance of failure.

I'm saying this for the benefit of those who think it doesn't matter if we win.

I bet Cuban loses every single game the rest of the year giving him a decent shot at a top 4 player plus Porzingis and Doncic.

36% > 14%

should have fired Luke and replaced him with Kurt Rambis to finish the season.....he is a company man, and would have drove the tank off a cliff if needed

a less valuable asset.....they will care when this summer comes and there are rumors of the Lakers having to trade every single player because we do not have a premium draft asset to include

Kurt is too busy advising Jeanie, Linda, Magic, and Pelinka.

I know about the Larry O'Brien trophy... but what do they give the team to put on the mantle when you get 21st place in the League?

It must be four times as big as what you get for 24th place.

I am not worried about the draft.

This off season's success or failure will have nothing to do with the draft.
