"On to the next one" "Injuries" "Just a bad night"

 

Basically the same [expletive] said last year.

 

It's time to make moves and not let Lebron Rot away like they did with Kobe

The way I see it is: The Lakers were starting to struggle before LeBron got hurt. And, they've been the worst team in the league without him.

 

If the Lakers were playing well but then lost to the Knicks today, that's one thing. But, it's really hard to deny that this team has major issues at this point.

They're capable of letting that happen. Lakers wasted Kobe's 3 supreme prime years from 2004-2005, 2005-2006, 2006-2007.

What does technically 0-5 even mean? Lol. I could spin it so that we’re technically 39-0 if that’s what we’re doing.


People on this board are technically not intelligent.

Lakers are a terrible franchise. Will be out the league next season.

A win is a win if you're a good dominant team. But we're not. Not trying to be cute here.

Not sure how they define value in the NBA, but when your team is generally a 50 win ball club and in the last 18 games without you they lose 17 times, you're kinda valuable, just based on the outcomes of those games. Throw in a stat line that's tough to match, and dealing with the daily conversation that comes with the territory, and how can there be anpther person named MVP other than the guy who's been missing for those 18 games?

 

 

Talent is one thing. Approach and understanding are are others. And for the most part,  the young guys the Lakers have picked in the past few seasons seem to lack a real intelligent approach to the game. They've had some guys who have a lot of confidence but really haven't done a whole lot to justify it. That borders on cockiness rather than confidence...

 

 

And that confidence is two sided. While the young guys have some confidence, because they're unaccomplished and green, the opponent comes at them with a greater level of confidence as well.

 

When James plays they take the other teams best shot because players relish the opportunity to shine on a bigger stage, but when he sits, their eyes get big because they know the young guys pose no real threat.

 

 

Rondo absence and Kuzma's injury isn't helping matters but it doesn't look like the young guys are swimming much. Barely treading water actually. Their noses just above the surface of the abyss...

Our team is no better or worse than we were 2 weeks ago.  We have injuries that have had a major impact on what we could put on the floor.  That's it.

 

 

We have NOT become a trash team because we are getting out played.  I think a lot of people need to back away from the ledge.  We will be Ok once guys get healthy.

 

 

 

For all of the people who wanted to see Ingram grow and have a chance to shine without LeBron (BBIQ, Jody, Massacre), now's his chance.  Enjoy.  You're getting exactly what you asked for.
