WESTBROOK SUCKS!!!!!!


I logged in, just to quote the above sentiment. And yes, he does suck. What a horrid gamble by Rob.


I am trying to like him but it’s hard


I actually liked Russ way better before he joined the Lakers. There was this mystique about him, goes all out each game, triple double king, controversial post-game interviews, crazy athleticism, always seemed to have his teammates' back against the media...

Well now...

I don’t see how the Warriors aren’t the favorites to come out of the West for the next few years with Klay joining forces with a loaded team, Rob Pelinka has his work cut out for him in making good roster decisions.

What did he say?


When they went to a small ball lineup, yes it helped spark the offense. But the defense was pretty good, not great. So then when we had to play a really good team, the problems with the Defense become glaring.

EDIT - and then he and big game James went into how the Grizzlies even if they have guys out they have a strong and coherent system where they can plug guys in on the next man up mentality and remain successful.


Only Vogel can't see this.

A deep team usually is preferable to a big 3, especially when the big 3 are past their prime. Six players in double figures makes it hard to defend them, the Lakers were there a couple of seasons ago.

At least we're beating up on teams with losing records. We're not that bad. Not great but not bad.

Was hoping for first "impressive" win of season but was sorely disappointed. Oh well...we made a huge blunder with WB signing so we have to suffer the severe consequences.

Lol I don't know if any owner wants any parts of Westbrook. Embiid would have to come out and say he wants Westbrook on the team, considering they are friends.

Welp, Treb called it when the 4th started, and down 20+...Grizz would take foot off gas, team would make it respectable.

Ultimately still a big, fat, unenjoyable L.

We are stuck with this Anth No way he opts out of that, its the last time he will ever, as an NBA player, make that in a single season.

3 players take up all of our money and one of the players is fragile and injured

I was excited when we signed Russ but I had no idea fans knew his (bleep) skillset better than multi million dollar paid General Managers.. and they do... Thanks for giving away our season Rob.. signing this guy will be one of the greatest mistakes in ALL of Lakers History

Bet he has a no trade clause so even if we wanted to trade him he could veto it

If it was the beginning of the season and he was a FA... what type of offers would he get?

He can refuse to report to the new team or retire but then he risks losing $47 million. You know that's not happening.

Being able beat up on losing teams only really works if Klutch somehow figures out a way to arrange the playoffs to only include sub .500 teams.

Not sure the return of Davis and Nunn finally playing can overcome the overall lack of competitive intensity from this team.

Tonight’s game was a horrible effort. Grizz players were literally laughing in their faces on their home court and they responded by going down 28 pts.

Shades of Luol Deng. I like Brodie but I don't think he's a good fit.

Ja ain't no joke.
