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.


Well in addition to the fact that they're not the Lakers so they're just not gonna get as much crap as we do the Bucks are the defending champs and the Warriors didn't have Klay so you know…

Championship team missing their 3rd star player vs the Champion (the Nets)
Championhip team with all 3 of their superstars vs the former 8th seed still missing their 2nd best player and potential star center (the Lakers)


Thats why.

Harlem you already know bro we been the true OG’s on LG and this type of panic at the disco is coming no matter what 😂🤣😂


No need to ride this wave of trying to bring some sense to the madness. Let’s just enjoy the process of Lebron, AD, Russ, and company figuring this thing out.

I mean hell at least we got a big three that can play on the court together and find a way to Iron out the wrinkles. Unlike the Brooklyn situation 😬😬😬😬😬

AD and Lebron were dominating today and we couldn't beat team where its best two players didn't even show up??? What the (bleep) man? I keep telling everyone Rob is a fraud and nobody listens to me. Jeanie should just sell the team. She's gonna wait a couple more years before she fires Rob just like how it was with her bro, Jimmy boy.

Didn't Jeanie want to trade Lebron after his first year with the Lakers?

Zero surprise with Westbrook.

There is a reason that chemistry, pieces that fit, and defense wins championships.

The reality of tonight's performance by Westbrook should pierce the illusions and delusions that a lot of Lakers fans were living in thinking Westbrook was the answer.

Avery Bradley came in and in a matter of a few minutes... demonstrated exactly what the Lakers need from their backcourt... dogged defense and the ability to hit the three.

Unfortunately, Westbrook has neither of those skills on his resume.


Prediction: Fast forward to the 2nd half of the season and Westbrook elevates his game into mediocrity... limiting the damage he's causing on the floor but still failing to hit a shot from the perimeter.

The Westbrook disaster lies squarely on the shoulders of Pelinka and the Lakers Front Office.



Nope this is on clutch integrated into the gm front office that how the tram crap came to be. Also Dennis is looking a lot better right now 😝. Let’s see...somebody that can take it inside at anytime and can actually play defense and yeah hit 3balls....lol! But but he wanted...I’ll stop you right there ...we could have told him to find what’s out there on the market and say we might match it ...done deal...the same stuff Mitch told ariza.

Not buying into that bro.

It’s because we’re the Lakers and we’ll always be the most hated franchise of ALL SPORTS.

I know like 50 people in my life that actually celebrates whenever the Lakers lose , most of them are hybrid Clippers/Celtics/Warriors/“whoever is playing the Lakers” fans.

I think with posts like this man people will continue not listening to you.

Rob’s a Fraud who brought us title #17? 🤔🤔🤔

An come on comparing Rob to Jim Buss???😂🤣😂

Even though our current roster is underperforming now it’s still an amazing roster with loads of potential.

Jim Buss couldn’t even get Lamarcus Aldridge to sign with us. Hired Dantoni, Byron Scott and let’s not forget about the money he gave to Luol Deng and Timofey 🙈🙊🙉

Getting Lebron, AD, and Russ is still an amazing accomplishment. An before someone says Magic is the sole reason why they are here just stop the madness 🤣😂🤣

Whats the point of having Rondo out there paired up with Lebron or Westbrook… Rondo just takes the ball out of their hands right? Westbrook should be running the 2nd unit not Rondo. Rondo should not be getting major minutes imo. Westbrook will be useless out there if they keep playing him off the ball.

Need to develop chemistry too, it’s basically a whole new squad. But once they get comfortable with each other they’re going to be unstoppable

The plan wasn’t to give Rondo heavy regular season minutes. Kendrick Nunn and THT being injured really threw off what Vogel and Fiz envisioned for our rotations.

I agree and I’m not trying to be overly optimistic.

I still believe in Russ’ playmaking abilities an I’m still depending on him when Lebron sits down to initiate the offense setting up our bigs for open lobs off his drives to the cup and of course finding open shooters.

Disappointing loss. Not really much of a surprise they played terrible defense.

Only thing that matters is 0-1. On to PHO on Friday. Hopefully they can get their sh** together by then.

Westbrook might need a few games to get comfortable, I hope this doesn’t end up like the Schroeder situation.

Westbrook was probably feeling effects of Rondo smashing a ball on his face.

Concussion protocol should have been in effect after that.

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.


Stay calm my bro.


Calmed down I have -

Here's hoping for a better next game.
