Let Westbrook play most of the remaining pre-season minutes to get him acclimated to the offense so people don't come up with excuses that he's still getting used to new system.

You know, I am more interested in seeing WELLINGTON, our supposed 3pt sniper starting SG not looking like an out of the rotation guy.

Lakers will start Westbrook, Bazemore, Jordan, Davis and Ellington vs. PHX today. LeBron James will be given the day off.

LeBron not playing is fine, but we need Westbrook to get acclimated with his new teammates.

LeBron has the wrong mindset about preseason games. He needs to be out there to build chemistry and cohesion with his new teammates.

LeBron is 1 of the smartest players in NBA history, he will adjust just fine when the season starts.

Yeah, not worried about Bron in the slightest.. It will be nice to see AD and Westbrook playing together though.

Vogel also said he isn’t sure if he’s gonna put the big 3 together for the final 2 preseason games.

^ which I disagree with that premise. I agree with slavavov. I think these guys need more time playing together to develop their chemistry and just knowing how to play with one another. So many of RussRuss mistakes was just nit knowing where guys are yet. We obviously have a talented group but chemistry doesn’t just happen by magic wand. And frankly as a fan I don’t want to see another season of 80 billion sloppy ass games of we’re getting to know each other basketball, I want to come out swinging. Vogel is my dude right now but the way he does his lineups a lot of times drives me meshuggy (although in fairness I did see him say on an interview on access that he doesn’t anticipate playing with the lineup that much this season. Please let that be true.) /rant

I'd like to see Westbrook just play his game, attack the rim, drive and dish, good activity on both ends.

Crowder guarding AD is different from Ayton guarding him.

Look for the Lakers to go into AD in the post vs Crowder early and often.

Great Davis the softie with the 3-pointer. He's still afraid of contact now?

Lakers are ruining AD by turning him into a 3-pointer. What a waste of a talent. Sad.

It’s just really ugly right now.

The entire operation looks ugly as (bleep).

Westbrook is a turnover machine. And we cant shoot.

Other than that. We all good.

Man, I feel like a broken record with this team...I keep asking if our guys could just shoot their career average from three. Said the same thing in previous years.
