tanking is lossing on purpose, 

 

we don't have any first round picks this year, so tanking is out of question, we just plain suck.

 

Byron can't pull jack out of his six.

You would need "Cavaliers" luck to land him.  As in jumping from 10th or 12th in the draft to 1st. 

It's a crap shot.  So I wouldn't depend on it or you'll just wind up let down when our pick goes to Philly at 10th. 

The only way this Lakers team became the worst team in the league would be if we suffered a slew of injuries and some of our main talent was out for a year again. 

I DOUBT any actual Lakers fan WANTS that to happen just to get Ben Simmons.   If you do then you need help or to switch jerseys.

No Lakers fan wants to tank and we all hate losing.But it's forced upon us. Byron Scott literally threw the game away vs the Wolves. His coaching decisions + rotation errors were something a Highschool JV coach wouldn't commit. I'm still giving him 10 games before I consider it a wrap.

 

It's sad because I really thought we could've been above .500 after 10 games before the schedule gets harder.

And giving up an entire season after one game speaks volumes. 


This team is better than last years team and last yuears team had all the 'tank heads' crying about us being too good to be the worst team.

Now the Lakers add Lou Williams, Roy Hibbert and Huertas and are actually going to approach Kobe's minutes intelligently as well as having Randle, a 2nd year Clarkson and Russell and they think we're gonna fall to worst team in the West? 

The pipe dream "best case" scenario if someone wanted Simmons would be the Lakers winning 45 games, missing the playoffs and somehow landing the 1st pick :D   unlikely. 

But to actually BE the worst team in the league, or bottom 3, it'd take the Lakers getting hurt again, NO ONE that's a Lakers fan wants that.  Regardless on if you gave up on an entire 82 game season after the first game.

the pro tankers are being unrealistic base on the talent alone.We don't have Boozer and Sacre as our frontcourt and Wesley Johnson as our starting SF.  This years roster far exceeds last years and it's not even close. Also, they are teams who are way worse than us in the East and the pick is projected top 3. I don't see it happening, maybe if it's a projected top 10, but it's not.

Sit Kobe for the rest of the season, let all the rookies start, secure that top 3 pick.

Every year you say "This year we have more talent than last year", "No way we will be as bad as last year", "So and so is better than so and so, so we will win so and so more games".

 

Yet you turn away the facts that we've had 2 coaches who could not coach this team properly, an incompetent front office with no plan, and a team full of rookies and washed up players.

You can always assume like Boozer, Johnson, Lin, Hill  

Are better than 

Williams, Randle, Hibbert and Kobe.   

But you'll be in the minority.

Imo I seriously think we can def be a top 3 worst team. There is no one who we are better than in the east except for 76ers. Knicks and magic have a chance to make the playoffs this year and will have more than 28-30 wins in the east, and in the west Only team that was worse than us was t wolves and they are improving. Def don't mind lakers taking a chance to grab Bill Simmons at least it shows us what the hell they want to do. With a guy like Simmons we not only have a bright future but we don't go on this long long halt from playoffs, and free agents will look at us because people would love to play with the skillset of Simmons because his game reminds you of Lebron. Reason why a lot of players went and followed Lebron because of his skillset of sharing the ball. I'm not surprised he said that at all he wants to play for us because he always talked about the lakers plus he is a friend of Russell and former teammate in high school. He also said that he has always worn gold and purple. Montverde and LSU
