Because he's garbage

 

I'd rather have Lance or even Rondo jacking up threes than Lonzo.  I thought that was an interesting decision by Luke to close with Lonzo...he really came through for the team down the stretch. (not)

Forgot to mention that the Grizzlies lost their last 5 and 7 of their last 8 before they beat the Lakers.

I know he does a lot of great things defensively but my goodness. Lonzo really cant shoot to save his life. He was an offensive liability.

The Grizzlies' big men are presenting the problems I thought they would. For some reason the Lakers were able to avoid those issues in the first game. But, their big men have dominated in this game. LeBron has been ridiculously passive in the first half.

As usual, the Lakers 3pt shooting and FT shooting have been issues.


We are on our 3rd string C

It’s unreal. The grizzlies aren’t a great team but they also aren’t a bad team and are also capable of beating any team any time, especially when they play well and the Lakers don’t and are injured and re-acclimating guys that haven’t played in a month. It’s very evident that people on this board don’t watch any nba basketball other than Lakers games, so they have a very skewed vision of what the game is, but I would expect a little more from people who took the time to register for a message board. Maybe not.

So with that logic they should lose about 60 games this season and win about 7 games the rest of the season, crazy that they already have a winning record and are 1 game out of the playoffs in a very difficult west. You are a total drooler.

His season stats really aren’t bad at all. He had a bad game. You had a bad post. Let’s move on.

He is a starting center. The Lakers are a good defensive team at every position when he plays. Their perimeter defense is way way better with a shot blocking center. They win based on their defensive play. I could go on and on. It’s also why people complaining about Lonzos shot is so laughable.

how is it a bad post when its an opinion? At times, the childish level of passive aggressiveness in this place is unbelievable.

These game threads are getting really predictable depending on the outcome lol

Like most debates on this board the truth is likely somewhere in between. We're not as good as the optimists believe or as bad as the pessimists believe. Not that we have optimistic or pessimistic fans here you know just a bunch of ppl who see our situation more clearly and realistically than others haha.

Don’t take anything online personally it doesn’t matter in the large scheme of things. Now let’s focus on the holiday spirit and get a W.
