That's at least three projected starters a month ago, and two of the top paid players on the team.

Yes, lots of work to do, as expected.

"We good".

Which makes you wonder what to do when THT/Ellington/NUNN comes back?



Having too much depth is a good problem to have…

I wish reporters would ask Vogel why he plays Rondo and Westbrook at the same time lol

One thing Vogel did tonight I thought showed great coaching. When Westbrook was going off on an official he sat him. Gave him time to cool off.

Had to work real late, missed an overtime win, but it's hard to be disappointed seeing we pulled even in the win-loss column, and I'm getting real encouraged seeing some of these comments.

GOOD JOB LAKERS!! Great to see another win!!!

Depth at 1-2 position is not necessarily a good thing. Just look at how rondo and Westbrook works. Is NUNN better at shooting 3s? THT? Bench reaves? Ellington is our best shooter

THT and Nunn will get minutes. THT though listed at 6'4" he is a much stronger player and can play the 3 and bounce players and switching isn't that big a deal with him since he is 220. Nunn is a solid 3pt shooter with a handle. Ellington is when the team can make a 3pt shot.

I expect there will be stretches were veterans get multiple games off. The surprise was having THT, Nunn and Monk all hurt, the young guns. You see tonight why they felt Russ was needed. The real key is will they make enough perimeter shots. LBJ appears like he realized I need to be a great 3pt shooter this year.

We saw the real Westbrook tonight. I hope he brings that same mindset when Bron comes back. AD may be the next man down.

It was obviously knee to knee. Achil he wouldn't be able to walk.



You can walk, you just can't run or jump. I ruptured mine so I kinda know.

he already walked and jumped when he came back to the game so it’s probably just a knee contusion

Good questions. Last year Nunn was a 38% 3PT’s, yeah, we could use some of that. THT is a Westbrook type right, he could give Russ some rest. Ellington, could help if needed but yes I’d use Reaves for sure.

If the current Lakers develop a strong bench, that would be great.

LOL, no hockey subs, been there…

I was somewhat surprised how well they played off one another.

Your achilles is the tendon attached to your calf muscle. If you don't have any control over your calf muscle you aren't playing basketball, so I'm sure he is fine. He was also grabbing at his knee, not his achilles at all so there is nothing to worry about there.

I'm not. Without Bron stopping the ball, there is more team play.

Fully expect Nunn and Ellington to be the better version of everything Reaves given us so far. Then there’s 8weeks of nothing but left hand drills THT which should also be a better version of Reaves (the 3s tho). This is a good problem to have, we have Reaves, Rondo and Bradley as break glass Incase of emergency
