Honestly just like most car wrecks, if an actual train wreck was to occur I’d be forced to watch all of it

Who knows who’s gonna be wearing a Lakers jersey besides Lebron and AD come Saturday

Warriors got hammered tonight, so they will be hungry

I'm starting to think AD and Lebron are scheming to get Vogel fired.

You think they need scheming to fire Vogel? Lol. It’s just a phone call away.


Barkley called them on out on national TV... they do need some finesse to make it seem like it's not their fault.

I could see them throwing some games... then turning it on as soon as he's gone so Vogel takes the blame.

Problem will be convincing GSW or Phoenix to play along with them in the first round.

Not entirely out of the question….LBJ and AD did just NOT enough to win the game…

Dwight Howard with his words

AD is total trash. You can’t teach mental toughness and dedication. The guy hasn’t improved one bit since came to the league.


I just think he needs to be called our for his poor play. If Vogel is being blamed, and Westbrook is being trashed, then AD needs it too.

Then he’ll play like a top 5 player for a few games and then become complacent again. I can’t stand Kyrie but he’s the only star player LeBron played with that played as advertised. He turned out to be a bit of a nutcase but he never became complacent when playing alongside him. He was convinced he was the best player on the Cavs

It's not Vogel's fault. Watch the game carefully. See Lebron's turnovers during key moments. Same for Monk. AD too lazy to turn about and get that key rebound. Lakers just don't give a (bleep).


Vogel is to be blamed for playing Lebron so many minutes. He has turned into Thibs.

I have to agree. AD was at 40 minutes. This small ball is not working and it’s running our stars into the ground. Get a 5


Totally agree...I dislike watching LBJ play the 5 when AD is getting rest, and I believe AD is much better when you give him a shot blocking big to play alongside. I have no doubt scouting reports just say attack the rim when Lakers go small with LBJ. It's what an undermanned Blazer team and it served them well.

Man I feel for the guy. But he made same mistakes tonight with starting lineup, rotations, and defensive schemes. Thanks for the recap.

All I'm saying is to be open minded about it. We all know RW was brought here by Lebron and AD. And we know Vogel is cracking down on RW, and RW went off on Vogel yesterday. So, now all of a sudden RW is "hurt" and Lebron and AD play like (bleep), like deliberately like (bleep) so that you can't blame the losses on RW anymore. So who's left...Vogel.

Again, there is something foul going on in Laker land...

They are enjoyable because they operate like the old Laker way.

Not this crap of relying on an agency for roster decisions.

Talk about a complete 180 in asset management competence.



I get it we are all pissed at our Lakers this season. Rightfully so.

But do you know how many horrible seasons the Rams and their fans have gone through???!?

In 2009-2010 I remember the rams went 1-15 or something like that

These current day Rams are benefiting from relocating back to LA and the most baller Stadium in Sofi.
An Fwiw I’m happy for the Rams but win a few Super Bowls starting this Sunday before you hand the Crown of Los Angeles to them.

LeBron looked like he wanted this game. He just looked old and like he played in a failed comeback the night before. AD never showed up so maybe your theory works for him

If I see how angry he is with this team im gonna puke. You know he’s the happiest freaking person on earth right now. So are the Rambiis. Now heads will roll and very possible Kurt Rambis is the new head coach tomorrow.

Or maybe Jeanie needs more proof. So, Lebron and AD need to convince Jeanie.

They beat the blazers with a better roster and without bron last time. Although same pathetic performance by both teams both times. Melo was hot, so we won.

So let me ask you this...didn't it seem like Lebron and AD purposely played bad tonight...on a night that, conveniently, RW is "hurt"?

Team is playing like trash, been that way most of the year, they are under .500, and its likely he feels like he lost or is losing the locker room. The dude frustrated everyone with his rotations since he came, but I do not think he is a bad coach. I also feel for him at this point, I just think the entire thing stinks from top to bottom. He is also absolutely right about developing good habits...this team has continuously shown repeats of bad ones.

I also think the loss of Hollins and Kidd on his staff may have had an impact on overall game to game insight in having that many intelligent coaches will have - you may miss something another sees; or a different approach comes up through collaborating.

With all that said...yep. Going to be a rough patch ahead.

I had mentioned that Monk Bradley combination is literally the worst combination the Lakers have of combinations with 400+ minutes together...

The sad thing is... Monk Reaves combination is literally the best combination the Lakers have for those with 300+ minutes together...

Monk played 29:09 tonight...

Q1 3:02 to 2:13 with Reaves (0:49)
Q3 2:59 to 0:41 with Reaves (2:18)

So Monk played with Reaves for 3:07
And Monk played with Bradley for 26:02

(bleep) dumb

Of course he's not. But Vogel is starting to get tough with RW. And RW is the buddy of Lebron and AD. So, Lebron and AD purposely play badly maybe to send a message to Vogel. I bet you wont' see RW benched anymore this season.
