Howard and McGee were very exciting to watch with there enthusiasm, Rondo was a great leader who played a pivotal role in us capturing #17 and now he’s wearing the ugly Clippers uniform, last years team had a identity and knew what there role was, this team seems to getting worse as the season goes on, this is all on Pelinka and to some degree Vogel but overall the roster is nothing to be excited about and we are gonna need some big time changes to get back to championship level next year.

Don't forget Green who is playing more minutes than last season and playing better than last season

Yeah, Philly fans seem to like what Danny Green brings, also watching Cousins dominate us was very depressing.

It doesn’t matter if you don’t have AD/LBJ for a long stretch like this season. Those guys were arguably MORE dependent on AD/LBJ.

Lakers haven’t really been all that Impressive even when AD and LeBron were fully healthy the only stretch this season that we were playing good was when we came out of the all star break and then LeBron got injured.

Number 1-2 team in the league
Best team in the league defensively

When healthy.


Healthy is what matters more than anything else. All that other stuff is irrelevant.

That’s just the fanism in me, anyways let’s see if this current roster proves us wrong when the playoffs start.

Rondo, Green and Howard were all pieces of our championship team last year and played for peanuts. Now Pelinka bought in all these supposed max players who aren't much better. I know I'm not supposed to say this until we've officially been eliminated from the playoffs but if it ain't broke, don't effing fix it.

Why the f would you ever try to improve on a defending champion? They've just won a championship. Let them do it again. It's not like those players were leaving elsewhere looking for a bigger payday. They wanted to stay for a repeat! Hello? Rob? GDI!!

How would the Lakers look this year if it was Dwight McGee and Rondo, and LeBron, Rondo and AD missing extended periods of time at the same time?

Guarantee you we'd be looking a lot worse than we do now.

It’s gonna take a complete 360 turnaround for us to repeat this season, like you mentioned those guys enjoyed playing here, let’s see if things change when the playoffs start.

AD got hurt because we overworked him defensively due to a lack of a 2nd rim protector.

AD got hurt because AD got hurt, not because he was being overworked. We were bringing him along slowly anyway and everyone had something to say about him not giving "full effort" at the start of the season. Then he got hurt in the midst of "doing nothing".

He wasn't "thibs'd" in the slightest. So out of here with the revisionist stuff okay?


Imagine how bad the Lakers would've looked in LeBron and AD's absense if it was Caruso, Dwight and McGee you were asking to find our offense instead of Schroeder and Harrell. it'd look a LOT worse.

All these losses tell us is that we are a bad team without Davis, LeBron and Schroeder. Who would've guessed? Imagine what this team would have been last year without Davis LeBron and Rondo. Guarantee you our w/l would be a lot worse.

Probably the same, about a 6 or 7 seed

Lmao. He barley played this season and now we can't ask a max player to protect the rim?

I agree with that.

Right now MJST none of us can really expect anything rational from any of us TBH - I mean, if someone is, great, but, I think we are all coming to terms with this season in our own way. Some rip the FO; others Vog; others something else.

This is sort of the mini melt-down before the big one.

Unless something shifts in a big way.

You should have to apologize before every moronic post that you make. Which by the way is 99% and counting.

Rondo looks good. He wouldn't have been worse than DS because of his ability to pass/lob. Howard is also the same if not better than Drummond. So if this year's team is on par with last year's team, then all of Rob's changes were for nothing except DS and Drummond seemingly asking for a lot more money.

No Lebron no AD no championship, doesn't matter who was surrounding them.
Besides I think the NBA championship is wide open, Nets aren't a sure thing either with their injuries.

I suspect last year’s team would not have won either if not for the long break during the season that let LeBron and AD recharge.

These dudes are beat up and appeared gassed at the moment. What chemistry? I agree if it wasn't broke why fix it? But as has been said, no AD and LBJ with last years team wouldn't have fared better. Short turn around after the bubble especially for LA and Miami caused a shorter recovery time and now all the extra minutes for guys trying to fill the voids.
If the Lakers can somehow get to the 2nd round and rebuild their chemistry, they've got as good a chance as any.
I still believe we will shock the world !!

LBJ is no spring chicken. And we're seeing young guys getting hurt with this crazy regular season schedule.
