Certified bums. Troy Brown absolute trash. Did you guys see the Cavs give him zero respect in the perimeter?


Also, why does AD keep disappearing in the second half?

At this point, I don't even care if they blow this team up. I have no love for any of the guys on the roster.


AD keeps disappearing because those said bums are just that. They garner no respect from opposing players. Makes it harder for AD to do much of anything.


People forget we just have so many vet mins on the roster. What kind of production do you expect from those kind of players? They are playing according to their talent level.


ah true. I guess the only other guys eating a bigger chunk than vet minimum who deserve getting blasted are Kendrick Bum and Patrick Beverley.

But even the top 3 paid players aren't really playing up to their supposed talent level based on their pay grade. Anyway, just so frustrating to see these losses pile up especially coz we don't even have a chance of getting a high pick.


How are our top 2 players supposed to play at their talent level when this roster hinders it? This isn't 2K i cant just turn the sliders and make AD and Lebron swish 15 threes in a row.

You need to build a team in accordance to your stars strengths. Who the (bleep) does this roster benefit?

This team plays D. Bron can’t hit 3s and looks lost.

there is a clear lack of leadership... the supporting crew is not empowered to do things.

Yeah with zero shooting, I get it. I just hate seeing wide open bums like Troy Brown missing 3s. Why is he even in the NBA if he can't make wide open shots. God i hate how they built this team. All-star cast of bums who can't shoot wide open threes.

The Lakers fell apart in the 2nd half with a 114-100 loss to the Cavs. LA is now 2-7. LeBron 27p 7r 4a; AD 19p 12r; Westbrook 19p 10a 2s 7tos. The Lakers shot 8-for-26 from 3 and had 17 turnovers leading to 21 pts for CLE. Mitchell had 33p for The Land.

Curious. Who exactly would you want doing things on this roster aside from WB and Reaves?

I saw plenty of players trying to do things their talent level cant make.

Cavs are superior. Spida was a huge addition and best guy on court

Austin Reaves 25 minutes. 0-2 FGs. You can’t be on the court if you aren’t going to do anything. That’s like playing 4 on 5.


Undrafted for a reason. He’s like Matt Ryan. Gives a flash moment, works hard, but not talented enough……


He's nothing like Ryan lol. Reaves is a legit good player playing on a crappy roster. He's been good so far this season.


Reaves is okay. He wouldn't play much on a good roster. He does a lot of little things, for sure, but he doesn't do big things very often. Today was a good example. He was involved in some plays, but he didn't impact the game much.

Ryan reminds me of Brian Cook or Matt Bullard, but I think both of them were better than him. If we are so starved for shooting that we need to give Matt Ryan a lot of minutes, we're in sad shape.

Yup. Over half our roster should only see the court in blowouts

Cleveland was +20 points from the free throw line. 32 made FTs to 12 for The Lakers.

Wow, we got nothing out of anyone but our 3 stars.
Roster is truly dog crap.

Brown and Walker HAVE TO SCORE!
Reaves had to score.
No one producing.

Donovan is playing like an MVP this season and with that said he gets soo many phantom calls. Same type of contact Russ will draw and there is zero whistles to no surprise.

Teams needs anther big. Jones need to be waived if he is useless just taking up spots. There’s still serviceable FA bigs who can atleast give you more size and offense.

I said i wanted to blow it up last year lol. If we get a good haul for AD and Lebron i'd do it.

I have no doubt you put AD on a team that suits him he'll dominate again. He and Lebron wont move the needle on this roster, nobody can it's a useless roster.

They can’t and won’t fire pelinka because this is the team Lebron wanted. Westbrook and his Klutch crew.

Just to make this situation worse, the Nets just fired Nash, Irving was supposed for dozens of games, they have had drama all year long and they are playing better then the Lakers, that’s when you realize that this team needs a major shake up from the FO and the roster and the coaching.
