I just want Russell gone before his stock drops any lower.  If they don't deal him this summer, his pouting and inconsistency is going to kill his market value.

 

This is the last year of the whole losing to keep the pick crap.  No 1st next season.

 

I'm hoping somehow the Ball family pulls a Manning family thing and forces Lonzo to the Lakers somehow or someway.  That way the Lakers can have a legit point guard and get Russell the hell outta here.

Russell has a lot of flaws for sure but I hope they stick with the kid for at least one more year. He just turned 21. He is our best young player whether people like it or not. He will never be a good defender which I am okay with. If Russell was a say 37-40% 3PT shooter would you still want him gone fido? If he were a more consistent shooter I could live with the flaws he currently displays. This is still at the end of the day a make or miss league. That type of shooter is an asset even if he has major hang ups.

From '15 class, Russell already dropped to 5th best propsect behind Towns, Jokic, Porzingis and Booker in terms of production. We drafted him at #2. I'd say his stock already dropped quite a bit. And he is not helping himself with 40 fg% and 35 3p% with 6 attempts per game. 1.8 assist to turnover ratio is far from great.

I'm like 99.9% sure that Jokic wasn't in that draft

Luke Walton spoiling Russell by complaining to the refs.

Its starting to look like lakers don't even want to be 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!!!

This game is more than enough to realize Randle is the one the Lakers should build around. Trade Russell for a 2nd rounder.

Randle, Ingram, Clarkson responded well to criticism.

You said Russell was the 5th best prospect in that draft class and listed Jokic. Jokic wasn't a draft prospect, he was NBA player! If we could do a redraft, there is absolutely no way we could pick him.

Dude just admit your mistakes...you thought he was drafted in 2015 lol. It's OK, I just like messing with people! Feel free to return the favor anytime I [expletive] up.
