Thanks for posting.

I heart Quinn Cook. Vogel needs to give him all Rondo's minutes.

PLAY THIS KID MORE!!!

QC could do what Rondo does, can pass, create, shoot.

Why Vogel is so hell bent on playing Rondo & not giving this kid more minutes is beyond me. So we lose out on Collison & the names being mentioned now are no better than what we already have. Why would you want another head case like Waiters, he isn’t that good of a 3pt shooter, he reminds me of Lance Stephenson.

Chris Broussard brought up a good point about our 4th quarters, why Vogel hasn’t changed his playing AD entire 1st & 3rd qt. he needs to change that & play Dwight more in 1st half & Mcgee more in 2nd half. But the whole deal is AD doesn’t get enough shots in 4th while LBJ is taking 28-30 ft jumpers cause he runs the clock down like Rondo. We also need to run A LOT MORE PLAYS FOR KUZMA especially on the baseline like Green gets.

This team doesn’t play like the Bucks do every night & unless we show we can beat the Clips before playoffs we’re the 3rd best team in league. The offense in 4th quarters isn’t consistent & lazy bad passing turnovers doesn’t help. I hope they get re-energized after break, I’m not sure why Vogel isn’t trying other rotations or playing players to long or not enough. Guys like Bradley, Dudley, Mcgee, AD, Caruso & Dwight when he’s not wrestling out there play hard all the time. Kuzma is the key to success though he’s been hustling out there but still looks a little lost or confused not sure why, be nice if they made more effort to get him involved but lately he’s taking it upon himself & we’re still having other focus issues... P.U. against Warriors we shoulda blown them out & starters shoulda been on bench in 4th qt...

It's not even like Quinn is a kid who should expect to pay deference to Vogel's head of snake. He's been on the championship Warriors teams and filled in for Steph more than once. Sure he has his deficiencies but they sure as hell aren't any more glaring than Rondo's.

I'd rather have Cook out there than Rondo if we are staying pat.

Yes he sucks at dribbling but by committee, someone can bring it up. I mean, I guess some people consider dribbling the air out of the ball for 22 seconds (i.e. Rondo) a skill, but Cook is a shooting threat from deep/mid-range at least.

Vogel hasn't even been bad, you guys are just overreacting like always lol. Maybe he's not great, but there is no way he's been bad.

Bump.

Inevitable he wouldn't be with the team this upcoming season, but he was a good dude, a great Laker, while he was here. Dad would be proud.

I'll always remember how he went down to Staples after Kobe's death. I'm sure that Laker ring he earned will have some Kobe symbolism built in there.

Thanks QC!

Always welcomed back here. He’s a great dude and very Dudley-esque for the locker room.

He will have a long career because he is a good dude like Dudley.

Partial guarantee - he gets a million and Lakers save 2 million of his 3 million.

I liked this guy, one of our better shooters too

He never really got mins under Vogel because of his defensive shortcomings but I'm not a super fan of just waiving the guy, he was useful in an injury pinch

Someone will pick him up - best of luck to the guy
