It's now 5-10 without LeBron now, isn't it? A lot of mediocre to bad teams in that stretch too. I think it says it all that a guy as disappointing as Wiggins has been keeps dominating the Lakers. The Lakers young core shows nothing but flashes. Plenty of young players show more than that.

 

This team isn't going to make the playoffs. Don't @ me Noknife.

Zu is limited, but Javale's looking like real [expletive]. Give the kid more minutes.
Kuzma looking like hangover the whole night.

This team is night anda day, one game they play like a real playoff team then the next day they play like they fighting for the number one pick of the draft, its unacceptable playing like this at home, i allready lost the count how many games we lost at home because we didn't came ready to play with urgency, this team lacks personality, they are not hungry enough, enough with the excuses of the injuries.

Nailed it. This game might bury us tbh. Regardless of the injuries, if we had simply come to play every game or most games this season, we’d probably be 6th right now.

This team is not night and day. They are just plain old bad without LeBron. Short of getting games that are straight up out of the ordinary, like Kuz going for 40 plus or BI bringing it in the 4th, they just lose games in a myriad of ways with one common denominator, the inability to score and defend the entire game, which is a recipe to lose every game. It’s not their fault, they are the best player in the game and a bunch of cast offs and unproven young guys. The expectations for this team without Bron should be to lose every game, they are that bad and they definitely should never be heavy favorites against any NBA teams and are proving that night in and night out. They have no go to guy, nobody who can create for themselves consistently, no great shooter, no dominant center, nothing. Serious question. How is the current squad expected to win any game short of getting lucky?

Playing hard like they did versus Houston and OKC, fighting for boards, screens and so on and not like zombies like night especially Hart and Kuzma,there is no excuse to play like that, i am pretty sure if we played hard like we did in those 2 games we would've won last night easily.

Luke playing Kuzma through injuries is unacceptable. I’d sit him 7-10 days and see where he’s at. Zu needs to start without question. McGee as we all know isn’t very good but he’s almost worthless without Lebron feeding him. Maybe Rondo can help with this . I’m not liking how McGee has looked since he’s come back. His defense and rebounding has left a lot to be desired. Hart is struggling! He should keep it simple. Watch that summer league tape and quit jacking up 3’s. Focus on D and cutting to the basket. Great to have Rajon back! Hope his health will hold up. I really hope we can keep him around the rest of his career. He’s a competitor and his bb iq is elite. But I really enjoy the way he plays the game. I wouldn’t mind him taking over as HC when Luke is fired.


Bye for now
