Laker haters : load management career lows and constantly missing games... "No problem, best team in the league"

Lakers go 17-2, LeBron and brow ballin... "Easy schedule, wait until they get hurt"

You guys are... Dare i say... Irrational and a little bit shook.

Its funny everyone in LA telling me this (and being born and raised in LA i know this) but Im currently in NYC and if you go by the media you would think its 50/50 split in the city.


Ballmer's money can buy a lot it seems ...


A lot more than STAY billboards. An injury attorney actually had to pay for the Lebron billboards. Sad that so many can’t see how poor this ownership is.


He put up billboards during Lebron's last year in Cleveland. If the Lakers had done that people would say we're dumb and would get hit with tampering. You whining about how poor the ownership is, will not change a thing. Clippers have the richest owner in the NBA. Only way out is to become a Clipper fan. And looks like you're leaning that way anyways.

Exactly. His shooting is pretty poor right now. Fortunately for him, he's on a team with plenty of offense, but he does not look as effective being handed the keys to the kingdom.

Doc is over hyped and his teams always play less than their cumulative talent level. The only time he did a good job was the second half of last season.

If you think those billboards or any Clippers' basketball advertising made a difference, may I interest you in some Martian farmland? I'll throw in some free snake oil and divining rods so you can locate water.

Clippers are overrated. I don't even think they can beat the Nuggets, they will not even make it to the WCF. 2nd round at most. PG and LouWill are chokers. There's no Lowry and Gasol that will save Kawhi's ass this time.

What do you guys think is going on? Time to warmup and play with Clippers? Or really isn’t as good as people taught? Or even injury issues?

Perhaps thank god Lakers didn’t get him

During the free agency frenzy, I wanted KL, but I never actually thought that he would load manage a quarter of the season with us. I thought the load management thing was overblown and he'd just play a regular season with whoever he signs. So in hindsight, I'm really pissed that we waited for this guy, we gave him all this power, a guy who was only going to play 75% of the season.

They are not as good as people thought. Who besides Kawhi is a proven winner in that lineup? PG and Lou are known to fold in the playoffs. At least when Kawhi is in Toronto he have Gasol who is a winner in FIBA and the Raptors are already a solid team and consistenly playing in the playoffs. How about Clippers now?

Kawhi is as good as advertised, but the unavoidable fact is that his body is rapidly breaking down on him, and he's only 28. Makes it all the more remarkable what LeBron has done, and is doing at almost 35.

Also think he's given free rein to chuck it in a way he hasn't before. This team kowtow'd to him.

Kawhi was good in the 2018-19 season but in the 2019 playoffs he was outstanding. He knows how to up his game in the playoffs. Still, that 30.1% from the 3 is substandard.
