3 more years of Mozgov, 3... more... years.

 

This is what Laker NBA has come to?  My god, this is pure slop on both ends. 

 

Indiana is really mucking up a great opportunity to blow this game open.

Sixers are 4.5 games away from #8 seed, so are Lakers.

 

Only one of them is 8-2 in last 10 games. Smh.

They're in the East. And this is coming from a guy happy to see the Sixers win.

That 4.5 games might as well 15.

 

Look at the win percentage in the East and West, it's not some giant difference.

I tried to defend Moz early in the year but man... he is hard to take up for right now. This is plain ugly basketball.

I swear if anyone defends Mozgov or gives me the stupid "defensive player" thing at all, I may just freak out.

 

If you watched Mozgov at all in his career, everyone should've seen this coming.  He had a peak year a couple years ago, and it's been a sharp decline in play and health since then.  Never in his career was a defensive player.  The fact that the Lakers, and after the Hibbert debacle, signed him at all, let alone for 4 years is deplorable.

Someone has to ask, whose idea was it?

Probably Brian Shaw assistant coach wasn't he the head coach of Denver when Mozgov played there?

Mitch and Jim have last say in the acquisition of players.  I wouldn't put this on Luke at all.  he may have agreed with it, but to just gloss over the management as if they had nothing to do with Mozgov isn't really correct.

I forgot B-Shaw was his coach. That could be it.

That's sort of weird since we needed a defensive C more than anything else offense related. Regardless, what is done is done. I hope he at least lasts us 3 years.

Stay for the remaining 3 years?!  Why?!

 

I hope the Lakers find a way to dump him in a package for anything before next season even begins.

I'm a fan of Ingram.

 

There's something about his game that is super intriguing.

I think the Lakers made their bed. Dumping Mozgov on someone will be difficult. If we can see he's useless then other teams can too.

I said that because I'm being realistic and realizing that there is probably no chance in hell he will be tradeable until he has only one year left. The same can be said for Deng. You don't dump off [expletive] and not get [expletive] in return. I believe we probably have to grin and bear it. At least I don't have to pay them so keep getting those checks (Jalen Rose voice). 

 

 

EDIT: The only that will hold Ingram back is his mentality and willingness to shoot the rock. The kid has all the tools to be a stud.

I don't understand randle. If Ingram is hot why not set him up and feed him the ball.
