Interesting to bring up though.

If you watched Kyrie’s IG live he said he’ll never retire and since he can’t play in the state of New York...............

No. I can’t stand Kyrie and I’m sure LeBron wants nothing to do with him. He doesn’t play consistent defense either.

What gets me is that Westbrook hasn't shot the ball well for what is literally the past several seasons. His poor shooting is well documented. And yet, all last year everyone said the Lakers need shooters and better defense. Well why in the hell would you get rid of AD and KCP, and sign Westbrook if you need shooters and defenders? Knowing that he Russ can't shoot nor defend?
It boggles the mind.

Summary of tonite's game as Lakers fall 121-114:

Up by 10 as the 3rd came to a close, then the Lakers...



Outscored by 17 rest of way. Game over. Gave up 38 in the 3rd.

AD, LBJ showed up. Some contribution from AB, and even Baze...

But overall, just a disaster in the 4th. Looked like preseason to be honest in that quarter.

I am not sure he is in a mood to play with lebron, same can be said the other way around. Dude is a nutcase.

Avery will probably stick around because all the other guards on D are horrible

Also Westbrook always starts seasons off slow, then goes on a tear. Need to hope he doesn’t play this way in the playoffs though lol

The positive I saw from Westbrook is that they posted him up a couple of times, and it seemed to work.

He needs to cut to the basket more, and they need to run more off the ball action to spring him open when he doesn't have it.

When the Lakers are standing around, they get into trouble on offense.

I don’t know what Vogel will do, but melo can’t be our 4, if he wants AD at 5, lebron has to be the 4.

Exactly. That’s a takeaway I have too. If AD is at the 5, LeBron has to be in the game. Melo doesn’t provide any help defensively and isn’t helping with the boards.

Our scheme got exposed when they brought in Bjelica

All the trapping stopped working because he was burying shots and can actually dribble and pass. It’s a really big pickup, imagine us having that option at center and the difference it would make.

In a series Vogel adjusts and erases it but within game on the fly, not his specialty.

Collin Sexton would also be a great option, I love Westbrook but if he can’t fit in we need someone else who can.

We actually shot 3s quite well this game…..
So lebron and AD both has monster games, we shot ok from the 3, and we still lost??? The FT shooting needs to be better.

Exactly. Ac/KCP/Hield is 10x better than WB
Not sure how anyone can’t see that. Stop consulting with your damn players and do your job as gm.

The more I think about it- tonight proves to me at least, that the Lakers might have lost some money due to the pandemic and wanted to sign players with star names, REGARDLESS of if they fit, or were good anymore...Did you hear the crowd cheer when Melo came in?
This season is to SELL TICKETS to tourists, and screw the OG fans who understand actual basketball...management and ownership know we aren't gonna win...but lets sell those tickets!!!


They were cheering for Rondo

Sure, Melo has no fans anywhere, and no one has ever cheered for him, ever...
BTW, you made my point for me- Rondo is a star, 2 time champion.

Outside of finding a totally incompetent GM and team owner willing to trade for Westbrook, the Lakers are stuck in a hole of their own making.

The best case scenario... make Avery Bradley your starter and put Westbrook on the bench where he can take advantage of second units.

Vogel will need to grow a bigger sack to do what's best for the team going forward.

How many times did we see AD and especially LeBron have to rotate and help on defense at the rim? LeBron finished with 4 fouls because he was helping all game long. Recipe to tire out our stars

We gave up layup after layup especially in the second half. The initial defense was good, but once AD rotates out, warriors just took it straight to the hole.

Welp. That sucked. There's a reason I don't post in games like this. I might get a bit negative if I do.

Who needs defense, hustle, non stop scrapping and team first attitude when we can go way into debt for a stuperstar? But that's fine if all else fails Carmelo has our backs.

Time for me to chill.

True, but Has Morey ever built a championship team?
Maybe he should take the call, at least Rob won a title.

I can see that telling everybody to calm down is pointless. This group is already off the rails.😂

When your guys can’t shoot, especially from the free throw line, maybe 🤔
Davis can shoot free throws but it’s in his head now.
Lebron historically sucks at the line…
Practice with a good mechanics guy, that might help.

It’s not in ADs head. It’s in his legs. The second he hurt his legs last year they started either being long or short which means he’s using his arms to shoot it and compensate

Social media is on fire right now saying we are 0-10 since Lebron posted up Jae Crowder in last playoffs with Drummond on the sideline mocking it

Sure we got our asses whopped tonight and we’re clearly far from a finished product but how the Hell does Brooklyn get a pass?

There defense was clearly much worse than ours as they got dubbed by 23 to Milwaukee.
