If we’re going to make a big splash with the Wizards, I hope it’s Bradley Beal.

God no. 250m for an often injured guy.

Kudos to Brodie, he balled out tonight (29 Pts, 5 Rbs, 6 Asts +3). When he gets going, he is relentless.

Neither please. Unless it's Kuzma for Bev.

He really kept us in this one, and played well down the stretch. We need more of this going forward.

Until AD comes back we really need his rebounding, our rebounding has been so poor lately

Weird if you just look at it by statistical stand point. He is having a worst season than last year. Maybe similar if you factor in his minutes played.

My only explanation is that this year's roster is better than last year. I think him coming off the bench also puts the illusion that he is much better.

his +/- and net rating is better but might have to do with group around him and him playing vs bench guys alot either way hes + this year.

Yep, his best game as a Laker, IMO. Played very well. Props are due when he plays this way, and as I've said individually, his talent level is way too high to be considered a 3nD role player.

If you go back to the game after he bottomed out, over the last 9 he’s averaged 23/8/8 while shooting 49/38/64.
That probably equates to about a 25-35 million dollar player, where his actual cost is 47 but his league perception is at best an MLE value.

This is not a player you can trade and be better in return. You need to lean into this version of the team and get others to support the identity of a team that needs to get out and run to win.

There's no way it should cost the Lakers a pick to trade Russ.
He's, dare I say, a positive in certain situations.

Here's the video:

There's a similar rule for penalty kicks in soccer. This is why there's a semi-circle at the front of the penalty box. Every now and then, a game gets won or lost because someone just can't stay behind the line. It's a pretty rare call in the NBA, but I vaguely remember it happening before. Schroder was pretty far over the line, too. That would have been a harsh result.
