Yes, Vogel, put Melo in at center.


Pretty sure AD is the center and guarding Jokic.


He's guarding Jokic, but I don't think he is playing center. We are playing without a center. Melo came in for Dwight.


Melo comes in for Dwight and AD shifts to the 5. not that hard of a concept to grasp lol.

I agree Melo shouldn’t be in tho


Positionless basketball is also not a hard concept to grasp. Just go look at the all star ballot with no center. AD is playing the same way he is playing when Dwight was in, and not consistently guarding Jokic on defense.

MMLE looks like an overpay for Monk at this point, but I’d take him at that rate if he accepts it

I honestly I knew it would be difficult for us to win because I watch the nuggets but I really hate seeing like LeBron's been so much energy last game or AD spend so much energy this game and risk reinjury or whatever and then we don't even win like that I just don't even know what to say about that OK now I really am leaving y'all have a good end of weekend.

I feel like an idiot. This team has checked out since the trade deadline. Especially LeBron. They never intended on extending the season, from management on down to the players. We’ve been watching hoping that the season could be saved but the players and coaches have been thinking about Cancun all this time. Melo smiling throughout. LeBron making April Fools jokes. Like c’mon

Nuggs dont have 2 of their stars and bounced us. 3 back with 4 to go.

A joke on Frank and LBJ to not make it in.

He's worse than 2016 Kobe and our coach relies on him like he's still a star

Monk and Melo are great when things are coming easy and they’re strutting and mean mugging all over the court but when the game gets tough, they look unplayable at times.

I don’t want to upset you guys cause I know AD isn’t 100% but Jokic is so much better then him especially now, Jokic has come a long way since we played the Nuggets in the WCF.

Even though NO owns all of our picks (likely lottery) for the foreseeable future, I somehow think they'll find a way to f it up.

It may have been the trade deadline, but I seriously think this team checked out on Vogel. Jeanie Buss had to check in with Magic to ask if she should worry, he said no because of injuries. This is so insanely funny.

LMFAO. so predictable LeBron would sit against a winning team today in a must win game. He's only played against .500 teams the past few weeks. Why? Because he can hit his 30 ppg easier. Even if its a loss, doesn't matter, as long as he hits that quota he's happy. GOAT

The Lakers represent the city. To lose 50 games is unacceptable.

I thought we could win despite Vogel all but sabotaging but as long as he controls rotations, we never had a chance. Let’s be honest… the front office tanked the season at the deadline. LeBron wanted changes because he knew we weren’t enough. We made no moves. His top priority since has been to close on Kareem and the scoring title

Your initial message said Melo was the center and it’s because he came in for Dwight.

But now you’re saying positionles and we had no center.

So are you complaining that dwight isn’t in? Or AD wasn’t playing like a center.

Guarantee Melo wasn’t subbed in to be the center though. The issue was AD kept switching off Jokic on the PNR whether it’s by design or not idk.

Bron is definitely just trying to get that scoring title.

Yea, Melo was coming in for Dwight. I was being sarcastic. I didn't think it was a good thing to put Melo in there because of what he lacks on defense and his offense doesn't make up for it.

LeBron is my favorite player forever but his number one priority is the scoring title. Months back he decided the team wasn’t good enough and has been chasing points. Also, Vogel lost the locker room since like January

Ok so I was not the only one thinking this hahah. I kind of feel like he is picking and choosing the games where he knows he has best shot at helping his PPG and not risk hurting it in games where defense would be a threat to drop his average. It is crazy to think but I do actually believe that is occurring.

With how bad we are, the swap next year will be pretty meaningful.
