Vogel was so good in the playoffs that I totally forgot his infuriating all of us with how he overplayed Rondo. Vogel has had an average year so far. Jones should have started last game too. It shouldn’t have taken Trez to have to tell the coach to put him back on the bench

Umm..Vog said officials claimed that the 3 pointer that was actually 2 that "they couldnt reverse" cuz "too much time passed" that's horsecrap. I've totally seen calls changed like that far after they occurred.

Sick of this garbage officiating in this league. Get some real folks in there.


You are not the only one. Donovan Mitchell will be getting a hefty fine for expressing his opinion of the “garbage officiating” earlier tonight.

It is getting old. Too much inconsistency from night to night. Sometimes from one end to the other with different calls. I get that refs miss or screw up calls but sometimes it gets ridiculous


I may even say this season is some of the worst I've ever witnessed. That's saying alot. What drives that is the absolutely bizzare techs being called at a higher rate than I've noticed before, and the inconsistency with it. Then you have these inane excuses like "its too late for us to review" if a guy's foot was on the 3 line or not? That stuff is constantly changed and reviewed, and should never be missed by an official, that's what replay is for, is to make *that* sort of call correct. And of course the inconsistency in calling a foul on DS for the very thing he and KCP experienced (elbow to face when a shooter gets them up in the air and player goes through a shooting motion) but were given defensive fouls on.

I mean its just flat out awful. Tired of the excuses given for these clowns. Most of them are just incompetent.

Ahh, yes...yep. I have always reminded folks who pine over Rondo that it was playoff Rondo we liked...regular season Rondo made you wanna tear your hair out on a nightly basis. We were in these threads all aging and losing our precious hair over Vog insisting to play Rondo 16 minutes where there's be little D and not much on offense (except every 5th game or so).

Does this team even practice? I recall them mentioning that Kuzma said they never practice.

I think you are correct - I do not believe they do (or it is extremely rare)

NO

I keep posting as fact and people ignore me I even posted something about it in the injury thread today. It cannot be downplayed. I think Vogel in the presser today said they’ve only practiced once in like the last month.

Anyway this was intriguing

Per Buha

Frank Vogel said he can’t say for certain but that Damian Jones should be “optimistic about what’s ahead of him” with regards to his 10-day contract expiring with the Lakers expiring soon.

And I don’t even know what to say about that is it’s time for me to just go to bed.

Per Goon

Frank Vogel said that the Lakers turned the clip of Buddy Hield's mystery three into the league review office in New Jersey, but the "excuse" that the team got back was too much time had passed to take it back.

They apparently use actual games to practise. Their 'practice time' is spent mainly watching film and practising with their minds because of the team's collective high bball IQ. Kuzma mentioned this

There's too many games to practice, this season is just as weird as the last

No moral victory here tbh.

If you are a championship type team, you have to beat this Sacramento Kings team.

We aren’t good enough as currently constructed. Don’t have the interior defense of last season and we don’t know yet if we will have that playoff AD who had 4 months off.


That’s just sad. We were missing the GOAT, top five player in the league AD, Marc, and AC. Kuzma had a bum heel. We WON A CHAMPIONSHIP LAST SEASON on the strength of the GOAT and AD. And your takeaway is that the team sucks. Lmao.

So LBJ and A did not play. Do the Kings have players equal to those 2?

Do you think that the Kings players on the court tonight are better than the Lakers players on the same court?.........or did Vogel do another bad job of coaching?

I think it was the latter.

Seriously, guys, LBJ got to the finals as a 4th seed. I am not worried about seeding, get everyone healthy and good luck to anyone who stands in the way of a motivated LBJ.

Well on the bright side, Lakers probably saved Luke's job (at least for a few more games)...

Losing at home to a Laker team, that was missing three starters and a bench player, could have been the one that broke the camels back (so to speak)...

You're welcome Luke...

Vogel can only play - who the GM gets for the Team!

Having Lurch and a 6'7" guy as our only Centers, severely limits this team, against EVERY other team with a talented, TALL and aggressive Center, like we keep seeing...!

Exactly the idiots on here are pathetic!! Just like when Vogel won the Championship he was the right coach, now when they lose fire his ass!! Bunch of morons

How so because I dont fckn complain after every mistake dumb ass??


Your last eight posts are calling people names (and bypassing the profanity filter) for being too negative for you (see an irony problem there?). I suggest you fix that problem over the all star break or I will.

When Bron's not on the floor the team doesn't play with a lot of energy, they're confused. They need another leader. This is where we miss Rondo. We need a bench PG or someone to run the offense when Bron is on the bench.

I'm so mixed on how I view the team this year. On the one hand, I do believe when healthy they will have a terrific chance to repeat. On the other hand, I still think they need (is it Jones?) another good big / paint defender as an option.

My gut tells me team will make a really good run when AD returns and start kicking some behinds. I dont think AD has been right all year, and if he returns even 90% healthy I think they go on a big run. I also think the FO has at least one more move up its sleeve to help with this.
