Lol.

Yeah, when May comes I’m not scared of anyone in a 7-gamer outside GSW. Standing by that firmly.

The Lakers have been improving a lot defensively. It's not only the Chandler effect, Kuz is guarding the perimeter, even LBJ is playing some good D. If they can keep a good level of intensity, the offense will come.

No offense, but as much as people complain when pessimists show up when the Lakers lose, the same goes when we win and posts like these show up.

I wouldn't bet money that Kuzma, Hart, and KCP will be this hot (their play vs the Grizzlies today) during a 7 game series until proven otherwise.

Most probable they won't, this is not a good shooting team. They will have good games like this from the perimeter, but the truth is that they need to play to their strenghts, and that's not jacking up 3s.

Except I said the same before and during the course of the season while y’all have been overreacting to every loss and KD/Kawhi quote.

Been a firm believer in this team since day 1.

Kuzma and KCP have progressively gotten better on both ends. This team will continue improving. They’re close to top 10 in both offensive and defensive efficiency as it is, and will head into the post-season with the most unstoppable player in the league. I’m not trippin, lol, y’all can though.

Their strength is their defense and LeBron, who routinely gets guys wide open shots, most NBA players can hit unguarded 3s when they are available, including this Lakers team. Jacking up 3s is way different than taking wide open 3a

I think they are making the western conference finals this season.  You could take LeBron and his roster from the Cavs last season and they would beat anybody in the West in a 7 game series, other than GSW, and the Lakers supporting cast is way better.

Let’s see the team W/oBI and see what develops, it’s as if a trade occurred but no new player yet
