Running MyGM trades on 2k as we speak.


Do it. What deals you making?

Lebron should already know this is a lost season, but if he can be the oldest to lead league in scoring I’m sure he’ll be okay. His mindset has shifted.


I wonder how LeBron would feel going back to either Miami or Cleveland?


Why would James want to go anywhere? Man has the cushiest job in the NBA.

He is the leader of the coveted Laker franchise but is never held accountable for anything including losses. He gets to chase personal records as the team he used to his massive influence to create underachieves.

He is content. And it shows.


Don't you get bored saying the same damn thing every other post?


Not really. I’m inspired by what I see on the court. I’m reacting.

When I see something different I’ll change my narrative.

Lakers under .500 again. Just got humiliated on National TV by 37 pts.

What are you seeing that leads you to a different conclusion?

The reason we win against bad teams is because they mostly suck from the 3, and if they are hot for that night, they hammer us (see spurs). Our defense is basically hoping the other team miss 3s.
All the mindless switches ends up in layups or open 3s.
If you don’t have the good defenders, maybe switch up the defense is another way to go

He has ran that since after the championship, but he calls it getting better every year.

I'm still going to blame him because his salary is the reason why we have such a (bleep) supporting cast.

Yeah Russ had a few bone headed plays but he was fine overall. Huge improvement over the last several games.

Including Lebron who lollygags his way back on defense when he misses shots or turns the ball over.

Total knee jerk reaction by me, but the albatross contract of Russ + lack of picks sorta feels like a few years ago, ya know? Almost like...the circle of life.

Except no Disney ending.

Monk sure has cooled off lately. Reaves is starting to come back to earth. Dwight doesn't seem like he's friendly with his teammates.

Vogel playing Ariza and not Stanley. I have no idea why he put DAJ in. Ellington, I don't know about that.... Is Vogel trying to get fired?

I only watch for mindless entertainment. It’s time to stop supporting this garbage. It’s like watching the Donald Sterling Clippers’ teams, without the young up and coming talent. It’s a complete waste of my time and for the first time in many years of watching, I’m about to say no to Lakers basketball.

G.A.R.B.A.G.E!

Monk and AB getting hot from the 3 were the reason we won those games and also the reason Vogel thought lebron at center worked. Truth is nothing we have works against good teams.

Keep in mind this is the same team the clippers without half their rotation came back on from 25 down and won.

But I guess that’s the difference between young players and veteran names who are fine embarrassing themselves.

For you kids who don't follow the bouncing ball. Don't trade away the 1st in the Westbrook deal and Bones (or Cam) were on the draft radar screen that night, front and center.

Using one game to judge a player especially a rookie now?
