Barton always kills the Lakers. The Lakers have managed to make Mudiay look relevant

Russell - constantly just passes and plants himself.  No  movement anywhere.  No grasp of off-ball fundamentals.  It's maddening that this kid is making money playing this way.

 

Again, Randle's head is typically somewhere else.

A young team can AT LEAST do the fundamentals right. That's literally the LEAST you can do and nope.

Yep, it's frustrating.  It ain't just a young team thing, the system or coaching - it's the personnel.

I'm confident we're keeping our pick.

It's top 3 protected, likely the Lakers won't get lucky again.  Plus, the LAST thing this team needs is even more youth.  The NBA lottery rabbit hole - few, if any, teams ever get out of it.

 

I can only hope that this meeting with Magic is about selling this team and getting a fresh new outlook on personnel and team dynamics.

I'm not sure what new management would do to improve this team...

This isn't baseball where there's no salary cap.  The Dodgers are successful because they're able to throw money around.  This is a new age of basketball.

Selfish play from Clarkson. Just looking out for number one.

Just new energy and a new outlook.  This ownership and management is outdated and lost.  It's been proven over and over again.

 

It's just time.  Hell, it's been time since Dr. Buss passed.

 

All that money in Mozgov and Deng riding the bench, and for 3 more years - disgusting.

Those two and Robinson are better teammates than the starters...they play unselfish and for each other. Randle disappoints me the most....just a stat padder who plays low IQ hero ball.

It's deck chairs on the Titanic at this point.

 

More minutes for Zubac and Ingram.

Maybe that's what he's trying right now but Calderon, Lou, and Clarkson is very questionable...

Needs to pull a Popovich and bench the "entitled" players until they get some act right in their systems
