That’s just not true lol. And yes defense can come down to one person. Lonzo sets a great tempo. And he gets in lanes, switches well.

The issue has been offensively for a majority. There have been bad defensive games

Also I think the change in offense and defense with lonzos return says a lot about what lonzo means to this team

What's not true? A team plays poor defense because 1 guy isn't playing? Have you ever played competitive sport in your life? If you think defense comes down to one person you're completely wrong. I played competitive sport for almost 20 years and i can assure you you're wrong.

This was a great win. Say what you want about the guys who weren't available for the Spurs, the thing is, they still are the Spurs. Good to see BI playing aggressive. Lonzo is definetely indispensable for this Laker team.

Lonzo 18/10/6  and 4 steals on 7/11 shooting. Defense was amazing.

Lol I think the fact that you’re so defensive tells me all I need to know about the confidence in your statement

And yes one player can make a difference in competitive sports.

I did answer the question, and you continue to be defensive

So you’re telling me, having a player like let’s say 2009 Dwight Howard doesn’t make a defensive difference if he’s on the floor or not

2007 Kevin Garnett?
2002 Ron artest

You’re saying there’s NO defensive drop off when they’re off the floor. Nonsensical

It does make a difference big difference when you have a player who’s a big deal defensively. Lonzo is our #1 rebounder, #1 in steals, plays the lanes

He makes a huge difference plain and simple. It’s evident in the footage

I asked if you ever played competitive sport i don't see your answer anywhere because this gives you a all new prespective from the game.

You can have the best defensive player ever played the game in your team that doens't mean your team will be good defensively, you wanna know why? because it's a team effort, if 1 guy puts the effort in and the other ones don't buy it your team will suck regardless.

hats off to Luke.
I’m a randle fan but, good on him for sticking with Nance when he got going, luckily he didn’t lose confidence on LMA, and luckily those double teams didn’t cost us

I’m really happy with the team play lately.
when you don’t have a super star you gotta find the energy and feed it.

Luckily we’ve found some these last 3 games.
I hope we can find some the next two

Pau can't even get off the ground anymore.

Would really like to see a jump rope contest for charity between Pau and LaMarcus.


Edited by kball, January 12, 2018 - 06:29 AM.

Excited for  1. Lebron! (Still love me some Kobe, but damn this guy is amazing) 2. Another big get (Whether in FA or in a trade we need some attractions and closers) 3. Young Guys making big jump (Assuming we have anyone left after more necessary moves either genius ones or in desperation)

READY FOR SEASON!!!
