Maybe with AD. If LBJ good I'd play him.

This man is softer than charmin. And people said he would be our center hahahaha.


He was playing through "flu-like symptoms"; if he was suffering from what I know about a flu-like symptom, it's not fun at all doing anything physically exertive...nevermind playing a pro basketball game.


You don’t need to explain to the Laker fans that Davis was trying his best to play through awful weather condition, everyone knew there was a chance he wasn’t going to play.


Huh?

Seriously IG, I so not get you at all.


He probably meant AD is under the weather. Voice dictation does folks wrong.

It's not that TD - I interpreted his post as a negative comment towards my content. Which is ironic, since such a post itself would be worthy of the same critique.

Agreed. We need wins (many of them) in the worst way STAT. This would be a terrible time to "load manage" anyone.

My post had nothing to do with your content it was more directed towards Davis being under the weather during the Knicks game, sorry if it was meant that way.

His rebound numbers have gone down every year basically since 2016-2017 season (with one season being the outlier). Example, dude average less than 8 boards a game last season. He has zero interest to be inside and bang. He wants to to be a SF basically (not a center). He has had less than double digit boards in 5 of the last 7 games. The majority without LBJ. It’s not just last night, just like the last five seasons, his rebound numbers continue to trend down. And I expect this season he will once again be well below double digits by the time the season ends.

Stop making excuses for this man and acknowledge what he actually is. A very talented player with freakish gifts for his size but is starting show significant decline in very important parts of his game (my only guess is he is starting to play for timid/less aggressive in hopes it will prevent injury). Only thing I can figure. It’s mental and he has no desire to be a true PF/C big and instead play a SF type role from the PF position

^He is averaging 10 boards this year after almost 25% of the season. He was also feeling ill last night.

Calm down.

The Lakers came back from a huge deficit again. They never took the lead, they did tie, I think twice. The amount of energy it takes to come from 25 down is mind boggling. They ran out of gas in the fourth.

I still believe the Lakers have a chance to make the playoffs and possibly win a ship. I said I'd wait until we were 20 games into the season before I made a judgment.

We're 10-9, 1 below 500. I'm concerned. When we floor a full healthy squad if we don't improve, I'll be worried.

With the 5th easiest schedule to date, it is worrisome.

9-10 is terrible playing mostly bad teams. If they can’t beat horrible teams consistently without Lebron then how are they going to compete with the top of the league or even just average NBA teams.
