AD's floor is higher than Russ' ceiling.


Is that meant to somehow make us feel better?


Just saying, the AD hate has taken on new levels if someone thinks AD's "underperformance" has been less impactful than Russ.


Really? Westbrook outscored AD by 10 and out rebounded him 6 to 13. Your response?

Of our 9 wins, 2 were against Houston and 1 against Detroit. At least we know we're better than Houston and Detroit? Pels are laughing all the way to the bank with our 2022 first rounder.

Yet another coulda, shoulda LOSS. LA shot a dismal 37.4%.
Getting down by 25 to any team is a tough hill to climb. The team gave a good effort in the second half but ran out of steam while playing catch up.
Individually and collectively we have to do better!

man tht didn't play well, we needed him to step up. He started out hot and has been looking worse each game since. At least he has hit his floor now and will have a big game next. Book it!

He was also responsible for Fournier

Are we talking only this game or for the season? Because for the season Westbrook has been booty. He's had a couple of nice games but overall he hasn't been good. I'd trade him right now for Rubio alone.

You must have missed him getting tossed. Give these guys a chance to play together and gel. If you can’t stomach the process, come back in April when the playoffs start. We’ll save you a seat.

You said "all season", not just tonight. That's the sample I referenced with my post.

That first round pick will not land in the top 14… Draft is weak this year.

When you rely on a player like THT to produce and he gives you 0 points you aren't going to win. I thought he would have a breakout year this year but he's still really inconsistent.

What has AD done this whole season?
Lebron has missed half the games and so AD is #2 on the totem pole. Has he stepped up? Has he provided energy and spark?

Westbrook annoys the hell out of me sometimes, but at least he gives a damn every night. AD is usually in slow motion out there, and it shows. We need him to step up and he fails us every game.

He’s also very durable, which makes me wanna puke when I see Westbrook for Love/Rubio trade proposal by Laker fans those 2 guys are prone to getting hurt a lot.

What? I see a lottery team. What are you seeing? I mean it's already a quarter of a season in so there shouldn't be any more surprises. We are what we are and we are an old and slow lotto team.

Beginning of the 4th was the perfect time to force feed AD on the post specially when Randall picked up his 5th.

He needs the ball to initiate and to get a step on his defender. He had 4 shots each half, not nearly enough ton take over the game. Missed some gimmes as well. Sadly, he’s getting the Kuz stand around and bailout the possession role. I saw this movie before in 2019/2019 with Kuz.

Westbrook and Davis, just not today, are the only two players keeping the team in games.

If you traded Westbrook for Love and Rubio, that would be a horrible trade.

Though flawed, I like Westbrook’s effort game after game. He’s at least trying. Other players on the team have sucked ass..

Bazemore - bum
Bradley - weak
Eilliington - weak
THT - overrated and a ball hog
Melo - inconsistent
Monk - inconsistent and sloppy as hell
Davis - needs to play inside out - sick of his outside game
Howard - ok
Jordan - ok

Westbrook and lebron rarely missing playoffs. They will get in as a lower seed

Yeah our role players are nothing to brag about, that’s why its gonna come down to the big 3 this season they have to play at a very high level, then you gotta hope guys like Monk and Carmelo and Nunn provide enough points to give us a boost.
