Kings are just a better team. Walton is a better coach.

Lakers aren't close to being championship caliber. They will be lucky to make it into the first round.



They play like this? They wont get out of the play in.


Yeah, that's what I meant.

10 point lead and we let them hit uncontested threes , zero defensive intensity.

Deserved to lose with that TYPE OF disrespect to your opponent.


GARBAGE BASKETBALL

Davis was their 4, and AD had to guard him, so that left Drummond being killed by pick and roll, you’d think Vogel would sub in Kuz and move AD to 5, and he waited 3 minutes


Just idiotic play and idiotic coaching. Bunch of idiots showed up tonight.


Davis who is 6’4 playing power forward beat us tonight.

Even worse Luke Walton’s trash small ball lineup beating Vogel, Hollins, Kidd, and Handy.... PISS POOR.

Getting those horrible flashbacks when Luke used to play Josh Hart at Center.


The thing is, if you want to play big...play big. They dont. Team just plays like hot trash for too many minutes every game.

I'm tired of being nice and calling it 3 stooges basketball...lets just call it what it is:

Trash, idiotic, garbage play that is inexcusable as a professional player.

Truly dumb playcalling for the final shot. Knew it would be a missed Lebron 3 before it even happened.

This team have too many mouths to feed right now. It seems like players don't have a definite roll on offense.

Vogel was really bad with the rotation tonight. Kief have to sit, he's been one of the biggest negatives the past couple weeks.

Kuz only taking one shot? Gasol/THT not getting enough PT when they were positive on the floor.

Simply giving playing time to the wrong players right now. Vog have to tighten up the rotations. Or this team will never get in a flow if players not sure how long they are playing each night.

What's hilarious?

I bet my wife that the Kings, with 7 seconds left on shotclock (under 2 minutes, they were up I believe by 2 at the point) ready to inbound ball...that they'd make the 3. Seen it too. many.bloody.times.

And...yep...they nailed the 3

Got $20 tho

I am NOT happy right now. So upset at the horrible basketball. At times they played as if they were completely disinterested.

Marc Gasol tried to help save the game in the 2nd quarter and Vogel just took him out of the rotation.

Maybe they are trying hard to tank to play in and banking on Utah and Suns not dropping to 3

But anyway right now they wouldn’t beat anyone. Maybe Memphis in a play-in OT grind game where AC has to shutdown Morant.

Brutal stretch there.

If the team gets their act together...possibly.

If they keep us semi sleep mode going?

Play in. If lucky.

I usually reserve long term / more than 1 day of frustration comments for truly frustrating decisions over, and over, and over again.

Vog's refusal to use Gasol with the second unit and instead play Kieff/Trez as the "bigs" is just a moronic, idiotic decision that he continues night after night. When we do that teams just go at the rim more. We have a perfectly serviceable 7 footer who can hit a 3 and pass sitting on the bench, so use him!

If they wanna play Kieff, Trez fine...then sit Kuz and have Kieff play the 3, Trez 4 and Gasol 5 on D.

He also actually broke up a lob play as well.

Lol I’m back now. This game was odd. Lots of odd lineup choices, hella turnovers, scoring droughts, but then some parts of the game we looked utterly unstoppable. Weird season, hella injuries, no continuity... as the Beatles said “it’s all too much”.

9 games left. Let’s rise up Lakeshow.
