Kobe vibes. Ending the game with clutch shots and letting the crowd know about it.

Bron at center might be the way to go


It's still should be AD.


I'd trade THT, Monk, Nunn and fillers for Ben Simmons. Can you imagine him as our starting center?

which cost Kobe's career basically


This is a bit different. They brought Russ in to take some of the regular season load off. Kobe didn't have that.

This is the first time I saw Bron as a Lakers with too much space to operate. Last time I saw this spacing is with the Cavs.

He literally won games his entire career playing that way... I don't like it but right now whatever get you wins.

But we complain about anything here even after a win.


Im (bleep) ecstatic. But it's not sustainable. Things have to change dude i like the fight we are showing but we need to stop digging ourselves into these holes.


All season we been waiting for 1 of our big 3 to will us to a win. When the other 2 were not playing well... Finally happened tonight.

I know it's not sustainable but tonight was all about just going with your best with AD out and nothing else was working all 3 quarters.

Lebron still playing tons of minutes to try to help keep this team afloat. We’ve been unsuccessful taking a load off of Lebron as well

you hear how pathetic that sounds....we have a big 3...and we are waiting for 1 of them to get us a W. That means we suck as a team....they should be playing together dominating...but instead they are taking turns....sounds like our offense too...and the defense....fuggetaboutit

I remember Game 4 2012 vs OKC Thunder, we were up on them 8-12 pts for a vast portion of the game but u knew their athleticism could make up those points in a hurry. Sure enough the Thunder start to claw back and the score is 94-90 and Kobe isos and scores on like a 20 ft fadeaway over James Harden at the baseline and I AM PISSED because even though Kobe made that shot, I was getting so frustrated knowing that they were scoring their points a lot easier than we were scoring ours which was basically Kobe isoing and everyone else standing around. Sure enough they caught us and essentially ended that series.

10-10... I had this team 12-8 or 13-7 first 20 games... Difference is those two OKC games. Also did not factor in Lebron missing 11 games to start the season.

We could have had a 3-2 road trip if not for Quickley going bananas on us

I'm referring to games like tonight and the games we lost because we could not closed... If Lebron didn't miss 11 games will be at least 4-6 games above .500 right now.

39 points, 5 rebounds, 6 assists, 2 blocks: Not bad for an old man.

2-3 is a heck of a lot better than 1-4. Could have been better but 1-4 is disastrous.

Now let’s see if they can go streaking and move up the standings.

For the optimistic people I will say this, at least unlike the 2012 Lakers which had absolutely 0 chance against the 66 win Heat (their team was not only better but they matched up stylistically perfectly against us with Artest especially too slow to do anything to Lebron), there is no one dominant team this year.

As long we don't face the Warriors or the Suns... This team right now is not constructed to stop those two teams.

Lakers win in OT, 124-116. After falling down by 11 early, and even 10 in the second half, the team rallied.

Took LBJ going a form of super nova (however, was on 13-29), which we cannot expect night after night. A "stop gap" win until, hopefully, this thing is figured out.

No it's not a recipe for wins, although we won. But keep in mind that we didn't have AD either.

The recipe for wins isn't one of our stars constantly missing time. We need at least a 30 game stretch where they play 90% of the time together at the very LEAST. Because we haven't even gotten close to that this year.
