Up to this point, Magic and Rob have faired okay.

I don't fault them for missing out on PG, Kawhi, or AD.

However... I do fault them for the following moves.

- Letting Brooke Lopez walk when he wanted pennies.

- Making pointless deadline acquisitions after the AD trade failed.

- Not picking up Ellington and another piece via waivers.

I can forgive the Kwahi or AD misses. But not PG13.

Everything else on point though.

 

It seems like Magic and Rob are stuck in between trying to acquire big name players to win now and in the meanwhile maintaining team chemistry to allow the young core to develop.

Should've kept SVI and Zubac tbh. Trading chemistry over guys who avg. slightly more points??


Those guys barely played and they had no chemistry in the first place. These guys fit LeBrons game better, if the Lakers are to succeed they need guys like these to hit open shots.

Almost as if 2 guys who have zero NBA executive experience have no idea what they are doing?

They don't fit if they can't score. At least Zubac did other things.

There's no excuse for it. They're self destructing the team at this point. I thought they were doing good with solid draft picks the past 2 years. But this year things have gotten really shaky.

I just can't believe we aren't feeding Kuz here.

Extremely frustrating. Really was hoping the Boston game would propel them to a great performance today. Absolutely zero defense today.

Really on our team, who can play defense other than Ingram and Ball?

So far Reggie seems to be a liability on defense.

I can't believe the lakers traded a 1 year rental of Reggie over Svi after watching this. He is putting so little effort out there.

Thats what I said. SVI is going to be a great 6th man

Anyways another piss poor team effort. Credit to Kuzma, he had a great game. Just wish he could be that reliable go to option that can score at will and also play defense. I think that's his main knock.

 

Ingram disappointing again.

This Sixers team is deep, they didn't even played Simmons until now.
