Glaring weaknesses: Backup PG, backup wing.

 

If Lakers want to compete this year, they need to address these two things. 1 to 10 we are a terrific team, which we saw in early season but there is a big drop after that.

Don't criticize them too harshly they are a very very young team and will learn from this, but need to work on defense more.

You can't learn effort. You would think with so many players out guys would step up and show heart. Clarkson has been [expletive] the last 6 games. Deng has 1 good game every blue moon.

The first time D'Angelo and Julius did not play together, I've said it in the game thread that the chemistry was lost. The next you know Nick Young went down, and D'Angelo said he wants to get back to 100% before playing. Then other absences followed. When things go south, it is easy to look after yourselves than considering what's good for team. The same thing occurred in 12/13 season too with Pau and Dwight. I don't know how Luke will solve this problem, but he can't keep ignoring the situation of the team.

Clarkson has not been good at all since like the first 10-11 games

In fairness neither have the lakers


Praying for  1. Some Cohesion (Ill fitting parts with young bucks, new guys, and those playing for next contracts may muck things up all season) 2. Better Coaching, No More Tanking (Last season was more of the latter but not sure how much of the former we can count on. Walton with something to prove this season as much as any Laker player) 3. Rookie Watch (Hoping Lonzo outshines his daddy (ROTY??), and Kuzma finds minutes and makes a push for all rook 2nd team)

READY FOR SEASON!!!

Deep inside they're not Kobe and don't put out 100% as this takes true character to fight the impossible fight til the last man. They've been mailing in defense since long ago that's were you start. Hard but not flagrant fouls solid switches " not here not today" attitude.

No we're the COD player who in the middle of a kill streak and their team winning's controller dies and they can't find replacement batteries cause the other ones are recharging.  

 

So they go and take the batteries out of the second controller which are 1/4th charged anyway cause nobody cares about the 2nd controller, and so they play for a little, and think 'crisis averted' but then those batteries die too. Needing to be recharged themselves. 

 

And then they scramble around the house looking in every drawer for batteries but find that somehow all the batteries they've been walking past the past few days are nowhere to be found.  

 

Eventually they find two, don't care if they're charged or not, and toss them into the controller, get a faint light and then run back to the game, only to discover the game is over and their side lost, and during their battery conquest they had been sniped 9 times, and was the killcam at the end.

While in the meantime within the players lounge, they are getting trashed by their friends and foes alike and called garbage. While they sadly and ultimately wind up having to sit and wait for the batteries to fully recharge before they can make an attempt to redeem themselves,
