Klay has been a worse player than RW this season ,not kidding.


If a random player without Klay’s name and history averaged 15.1 ppg on 35% from the field while being a defensive liability, they would be out of the league.

See what happens when there is no Laker uniform pressure


Don't worry. In a few weeks, KCP will go into his annual hibernation. He'll wake up again around March.

People are also quick to forget that KCP also had "hot streaks" for us too.

Remember the 2020-2021 season? He started the season shooting 56.9% from Three over the first 12 games. For the rest of the season he shot 37.6% and in the Playoffs he shot 21.1% from Three.

Finishing the season as a 38% Three point shooter. KCP has done this many times where he's started a season hot and then came back down to the average.

People are in desperate search for a savior, or a way to bash the Lakers, so they cling to everything they can, like we didn't see this exact same kind of start from KCP in the past.

It's been strange seeing the Spurs/Pacers/Jazz compete as they have when the expectations were that they were tanking.

Also seeing the GSW and Philly struggle is weird.

Sure KCP had hot streaks here, but on average I see players have lower shooting percentages with the Lakers.

As I've said elsewhere, the tanking option is overrated for small market teams. If you pay attention to the quotes from unnamed "league executives" who predict that lots of teams will tank, none of them ever say that their own team is going to tank. It's always those other guys.

Also, it is important to remember that players and coaches don't have any incentive to tank. In fact, they have the exact opposite incentive. They don't get a bonus for helping the team gather some extra ping pong balls.

Let’s see if they can run out of fouls like the Lakers did with Chris Kaman back in the day.

Not who do you think will win the EC. But who do you root for?

I root for MIA. Love me some Jimmy Buckets.

Whenever the fam sees me watching a non-Laker game, they ask me who I'm rooting for...the answer is always the same...to make sure there is no misunderstanding or confusion. I'm ALWAYS rooting for the Lakers. If I'm watching a game with the Lakers not in it then whichever team loss helps the Lakers the most, I'm rooting for them to lose...I NEVER root for any other team to win.

Also, if a C's or Clips win would benefit the Lakers then I can't watch that game.
