Last two opponents, you can see the difference between having a core of unproven young kids versus a team of experienced veterans/role players and a star in Carmelo/Cousins.

We will win 25 maybe 30 games. The sad part is we won't be close to the playoffs and we lose the pick.

Twitter is so overreacting to this losing streak.

 

Im I the only one feeling somewhat ok with how things are going? I dont think the Lakers will wake up from this until maybe early January.

We've been on the other side few years ago. Its a cycle that every team encounters.

I'm ok with loosing knowing the players give it all on the court, i'm not ok loosing the way we been doing it mainly because of the lack of effort of the team overall.

Until we play some defense consistently we are just spinning wheels with these games... we can't win giving up 111 points a game. We have to change our culture on this end of the floor.

We scrap out every game this season even when we were healthy.  

This game however, we gave up in the 3rd quarter.   I think Shaw NOT taking a time out to set the ship right once Sacramento shaved off 5 points of our lead was a big mistake.   

I said to myself "alright, time for a time out to get the guys back on track."  

It never came.   

Essentially what I saw when Shaw was coaching Denver when other teams would go on momentum swings and give up a 10-12 point lead and Shaw would sort of sit back and watch it all unfold without calling a time out.  


That's what happened in the 3rd and we never set it right again and Sacramento took advantage. 

We brought it back to 12 in the 4th but we buried ourselves in the 3rd quarter by giving up 39 points.  

That needs to be addressed, and I'm glad Luke has addressed it. 


"Bryant had come to rage against the idea that Howard's clownish disposition could overtake the locker room, the Lakers' culture, and had warned Howard that he would never, ever let it happen."

That 3rd was awful.

It was only 5-6 minutes in and the lakers had given up 24 points...in 6 minutes!

 

Different looking laker team than first 10 games of season.

And one thats getting harder to root for.

If they gave a damn and tried thats something else


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!!!
