Lebron/JTA/Christie/PatBev/Russ was our closing line-up tonight...

Yea I get his a rookie, but this guy just seem to just toss things out there hoping that Lebron will make it work.

Bryant has been shelf late in the game. Could have helped tonight with the Kings smaller bigs.


TB was pretty garbage on defense tonight.

I agree though..our lineups are bad.

Ham also doesnโ€™t understand the concept of offense/defense subs late in games


I think TB has earned to see if he can finish some games at times. It just seems like Ham is quick to shelf him, if he's not having a good game. But does not give him another opportunity to see if he can redeem himself.

Hop off Russโ€™ (bleep) and bench him down the stretch


That would make him a worse coach. Closing with Russ is something he's getting right.

Disagree.

In the last 5 minutes of the 4th + OT, with a -5/+5 score margin the Lakers have a 103 ortg (-20.87 net rtg) with Westbrook and LeBron on. With Westbrook off that jumps to 127.27 (+4.20 net rtg) with the same parameters. Stop closing with him.

The point of the coach is to adjust when necessary, to bench players when they are (bleep) and to put good rotations in place. Ham is not doing any of that. Absolutely clueless coach. Don't have nothing against him as a person. Seems nice. As a coach complete and utter trash. But I don't blame him. Lakers FO hired him. He was never for that position anyway.

Mr. Ham is not horrible, but he's not great either. I have him in the same category as a Luke Walton caliber head coach. Problem is, we won't move the needled with a Luke Walton caliber head coach, so what can we expect for the next 4 years? AD is constantly hurt. Lebron is getting older. Pelinka is still lurking about. Our head coach is mediocre at best.

Offered 3 years to Ty Lue and 4 years to a rookie coach

Jeanie Buss and Rob Pelinka, ladies and gentlemen

For what it's worth, I think he's a pretty good coach. We've actually been competitive against good teams even though our roster is laughable. If we had Luke Walton, we might not have 10 wins yet.

Need a coach to cater to Russ instead of their two superstars.

NBA says Kendrick Nunn was fouled by De'Aaron Fox in latest L2M report - would've sent him to the line with a chance to tie


Ham should have challenged. Could have had a tie.

Canโ€™t challenge a non-call.

But Ham has had some horrible decision making in close games and it has cost us. Heโ€™s clearly got some good coaching chops given how competitive he has us playing with an injured and flawed roster, but his rookie game management skills have destroyed us. The good news is he has room and time to grow. The bad news is that doesnโ€™t help us this season.

One thing I'll say, the team has been in games.
They play hard and not many blowouts.
7-4 the last 11, even though it seems worse cuz of the last few losses haha

So possibly 10-1 if we didn't get shaft by the refs on those 3 close games.

Potentially.
Which is crazy. But hopefully it evens out throughout the year. I think Dennis got away with a foul on the steal. So hopefully more to come.

Darvin Ham says he "feels bad" about the workload LeBron has been carrying lately.

"It's tough because he's such a competitor and we're in these games and he wants to win, we want to win, so you kind of lose sight until after the game when you check the statsheet."


Lying ass.


Played Lebron the whole 4th quarter again tonight.

I guess he dont really feel that bad.

Ham and the team are figuring things out. Way too many squandered wins this year but the players deserve blame for that too. When you have three guys who can score at the basket and get whistles at an elite level (plus theyโ€™ll have two more once AD and Reaves come back) there should never be an empty possession down the stretch. They do make timely threes at times but when they attack, theyโ€™re going to get easy scores and theyโ€™re going to get to the line a LOT.

They also know that no team is ever going to stay hot against them or put them away. No matter who theyโ€™re playing or what the score is, the opponents are not going to close the door. As long as they stay focused and do their thing, they can win every game.
