I don't thank you often enough for all your work, but do know, it is always appreciated and a must read.


This.

Cheers for another season of Thoughts and Ratings! Many thanks for all the great write ups. Particularly for these last two playoff games which I’m sure were just hideous.




No doubt, no doubt...Thanks DB !!!

Thanks, as always, DB. And thanks as well to Mrs. DB, for giving you the time you need to do your amazing summaries. Disappointing ending to the season, but one thing I can count on is that, no matter what the Lakers end up doing, I will enjoy reading your write-ups and taking in your insightful analysis.

Mrs. DB and Family -- -- Once again, thank you to my family for all the sacrifices so I can cover the team for the site. Often, I’d be sitting on the couch with my laptop, legs up and my dog sitting on my feet as I pounded away on the keyboard. I would have loved to cover another 20 games, but I’m also going to enjoy the time off.

Thank you all, too, LG in and out of this thread for your participation. Wish we could have gotten into the chess match more in this playoffs, but injuries were the story.
Total Thanks, Props and Kudos to UUUUU & and Your Fam!!!!

Steven A (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Hz1gZNmIeB4) will be played every day in the FO, AD's house and LBJ's crib during the off-season and during the regular 2021-2022 season

We know that
* DS is talented but not an elite PG or leader for an elite legitimate title-contending team that depends on him as the 2nd or 3rd option (ala AD & LBJ)
* Kuz is an adequate rotation player but can't be a team's first or second option
* TNT is a Keeper
* AC is invaluable to the success of AD & LBJ
* Drummond should go get his MAX $$$$ with the lower tier teams that hope to get into the playoffs. If he wants to return, it should be a much lower salary while working to develop his game. When one has witnessed how Pau worked seemelessly with the Black Mamba on their very first game together . . . .
* Harrell's fortunes are tied up to AD being on the court with him or in a trap lineup
* Given AD's injury history, will Rob keep Harrell and Gasol when AD is not able to play

Lakers should embrace Pat Riley's suggestion (man notorious of demading top physical condition at all times, like others such as Tis) that they need down time from an exhausting year (https://www.espn.com/nba/story/_/id/31561426/miami-heat-pat-riley-says-team-needs-exhausting-year) during this longer off-season
