What trade talk? How can he be in any trade talk if no GM wants him???



I bet we can get draft picks for him


They got rid of the seventh round 33 years ago.

Thank you Westbroke. Hope that's the final straw for management.


What are you wanting to happen? And do you think some thing can happen?


Bench, trade, reduce minutes to 3rd string PG. I don't know just do something. It's so evident that this guy is a huge problem. No idea how FO doesn't see this.


If our FO was competent, they would have seen all this BEFORE trading for Westbrook. Since they couldn't see this, they're all incompetent. Jeanie should fire everyone and sell the team. I don't want to live thru 2013-2018 with her at the helm again.

I'd fire Vogel if he doesn't bench Russ. Start Reaves and end this C lineup nonsense.

Only (bleep) reason we do that lineup is because Russ is completely garbage without it. He's garbage now as well though so end it.


Do you truly believe he has a choice in this matter? A coach who prioritizes defence over all else ……. you think this is his decision?

We would have to give draft picks we don’t have and a player just to unload him.

Bron layup cuts it to 2.

Fox comes down scores 2. LBJ tries come out
to put a hand up while a lost Russ watches and daydreams.

Russ dribble dribble dribble. Chuck a 3. Clank.

Kings drill a poorly guarded outside 3. Game over.

Yeah that’s small ball for you. Hate that folks were saying we were 5-2 with LeBron at Center. Did they see the teams we beat??

Russ just forgot how to compete ☹️
Maybe coming back home to Los Angeles was the wrong ideal for him.
Too much going on over here with family, numerous foundations, car dealerships ext.

This gotta be embarrassing for him.

Like how do you go into your next workout if you’re Russ?
The past 5 games playing like absolute dog crap 💩
Lebron and company looking absolutely fed up.

Russ got that Showtime documentary that came start of season called “Passion”.
Like foreals where tf is it? 🤬

I’m sure the lakers have explored all avenues to unload this guy, but nobody wants him.

I'd do 2027 3rd round pick for Westbrook.

Props to LBJ man. Dude is playing at C while shooting close to 30 shots. That takes A LOT of stamina. He's going to be so tired once the regular season ends.

anyone who actually watches the game knew Westbrook wasn't going to work with LeBron.

no idea why they thought this could work.


I don't know if anyone did. you remember when they signed him and all anybody ever said was "they're stars they will figure it out."??? It didn't sound like there was any type of a game plan then and it certainly doesn't look like there was a game plan now.


Honestly, if that is what happened TD, just a bunch of idiots...I am sorry, but I am so frustrated watching this garbage.

What he saying


He went IN

He was like the Lakers need to drop all these excuses (his word) about missing players and all this type of stuff. Missing players is not why there's no communication. Missing players is not why Frank Vogel had to burn a time out because three guys decided they didn't want to run back on defense (his exact words), you can't control injuries and a pandemic but you can control energy and focus and communication, and stop making excuses and play the game.

The effort. Something this team fiercely lacks.

And get rid of that $44M albatross both as a contract and a player. His presence just infects this organization with stupidity.

Not sure I want DS. But, I can agree with this:

I never wanted Russ here. Was hoping he'd prove me wrong. Yet again, he shows why Russ is...Russ.

effort starts with the leaders too. how do you think austin reaves feels? he balled the (bleep) out today, only to see westbrook take lazy shots, not get back on defense, and pretty much tank the lakers today.

i thought it was just a learning curve at the start of the season, then complicated by injuries and covid. but now, what? its just dumb plays and no effort.
