here comes Dlo in garbage time... you know it was coming with the lead 20+


Why are you so salty? He has owned Westbrook all night...


salty? you want me to cheer for him?

he's playing for the wolves... are you stupid or something?

he was 4 of 14 before the garbage time, if you paid attention. how was that owning someone


I know we are all angry but Westbrook didn’t show up tonight and DLo did so there’s that.


so you want me to cheer for Dlo?

he was terrible before KAT took over the game....

if anyone owned someone, it was KAT owning AD... then Dlo started to pour it in when the lead was 20 or something.


Lakers didn’t show up tonight it’s just put it that way, it’s obvious that LeBron is the MVP of this team, the Lakers crumble and falter like a bunch of sissy girls when he’s not playing.


And that's why they will not the championship this year. They won't even make it out of the Western Conference. Heck, they might not get out of the 2nd round depending on the draw. Even when LeBron comes back, the Lakers just aren't good enough against the other teams because they improved too


Warriors are the favorites right now there is no shame in admitting that, LeBron coming back might change that depending on if he can wake the team up, because despite having quality players on this team, the Lakers lack leadership when LeBron isn’t playing and his presence can’t be denied because it’s major in every way.

I am tired of the announcers keep talking about "oh the Lakers dont have THT, or Nunn etc"

We've seen teams missing players and what they've done to the Timberwolves. The Lakers were own by 37 this game with Westbrook and AD available and Anthony Edwards only scoring 9 points. It's unacceptable. No more of this "But they don't have THT" excuses.


Let's face it, we were led to believe this team was a super team. Oh how we were fooled. I bought the hype, but clearly we can see this team is worse than mediocre. And it's not just that they are losing, they are not trying to fight when they lose and that's dangerous. This is NOT a Laker team.

I don't expect him to give these guys some spanking, because, let's face it, these are superstars who are used to being pampered.


I think he’s looking like that because he knows he’s going to get fired


no point in firing Vogel... there is no one Lakers can bring who can make a difference, tbh


You cannot go with the whole season like this whenever expectations were high

What hell goes on during halftime?... Why do they always come out of the 3rd quarter with no fire..


it's like they decided... hey, let's lose this game.

and AD getting sucker punched in the nutsack was the nail in the coffin.

To me, the Lakers are just not entertaining. I wouldn't be surprised if ticket sales at Staples starts to take a hit.

Lakers get their heads handed to them 107-83.

Up 49-44 at the half, proceeded to get blown off the floor in the third, at one point outscored 29-4.

Team basically just quit. Not really much else to say. Oddly enough, Russ and AD were a combined 14-24, for 44 points. Actually not too shabby, but Lakers starters a combined -101. Yikes.

can't really think of coach that can turn this (bleep) around...

IMO, problem are the players... they are too lazy sometimes, and they underestimate teams...

Beyond the Xs and Os, this team's attitude seems to be the biggest problem. I don't know if they think they can just show up and win against some of these teams or what.

They played hard and hustled against Miami, so why can't they do that consistently?

Vogel can't go soft on this team or have sympathy for them. I think it's time for him to throw a tantrum in the locker room, Pat Riley style.

After losing to the Thunder twice, how much learning does Vogel need?

Maybe starting AD at the 5 is not such a good idea? Was Jordan hurt?

We gave up majority of our impact players for Russell Westbrook. Remember that whilst we force ourselves to continue watching this team lose by 30 against

One of the worst teams in the west.

Who did we really give up? Kuz and Trez needed to go regardless. KCP is the only guy and Caruso was a cost cutting decision that was separate.

Anthony Davis on the third quarter: “We sucked. No defense. Can’t score … Why? I can’t tell you”
