How shocking.

Like Trezz and Doc, good riddance.

How long before LeBron gets sick of this guy and forces the Lakers to trade him?

It's so weird that a high motor guy is so bad on defense (especially in that Portland clip, that's 8 points directly attributable to him in the last 3-4 minutes of the game.) I guess if he played hard at both ends of the floor, he'd get gassed even earlier though? I think mainly he just has really poor defensive instincts, on those pick n rolls he tries to help by playing zone defense (sort of) which only means either Lillard shoots right over him, or Nurkic blows right by him on the roll...

I think for the case of him and Lou will it wasn't a focus point in their development so when they reach their peak years for the Professional level, everyone's already passed them.

I kinda don't fault him. Last night I saw PG at the top of the key, CJ just sagged off Batum for the slightest of second and PG made that read and passed it to PG for the corner 3. That was so quick I was like wtf How did PG made that read in real time? And PG's playmaking skills aren't the best in the league. They're not bad, but not the elite of a chris paul, etc.

I do think trezz should do better but I think he has a ceiling of how well he can defend or make those type of reads from a defensive point.

I knew there was an agenda with the timing of that rehashed crap he released a couple of weeks ago...

I mean, the laker gig he landed is a sweet gig. But from the optics I'm looking like, it look like he got kicked to the curb lol. Yeah, he covers the lakers but how much access is he going to have to the lakers compared to the clippers?

Dave Mcmenanmin, Ramona shelburne are the go to reporters for that team. For scoops, anything Lebron, etc. Jovan is not covering anything Lebron. If Trezz tries to play chinese whispers over there, He's getting traded and he's being dropped. It'll probably be career suicide to try to go to the media on a lebron james led team and the NBA's most popular franchise, the lakers.

Now, he's just regulated to being a beat writer that's among the pile of them that cover the lakers.

Dont worry Trezz. You wont be missed.

You were a good sixth man but not good enough. He is a liability on defense. Im pretty happy with our roster right now.

The only thing we lack is playmaking. I really want that clippers lakers match in the playoffs

I called this last season and it made the play from the 3rd quarter mid point to the end even more insane. You want Trez who’s already undersized to hustle and put up points attacking the rim AND be the last line of defense!?! No reason the 4th quarter net rating sucked with the starting unit

the clippers are regulalry getting 30 asts a game without a point guard. Clippers are doing it Spurs style moving the ball.

yeah i'm tired of the gb playmaking narrative lol. obviously it's not the same as having cp3 lead the way but the team added batum and kennard for a reason. not to mention lue transforming the offense.

Trezz has had two games with under 10 points so far, he had a total of 4 last season. He’s down 5.9 FGA/36 and also down 2 mpg.

This is what I meant when I didn’t understand the predictions that he would have a career year. I just was not understanding where people believed the minutes and touches would come from. We’ll see, but so far, I can’t see where he gets the same minutes and touches to put up better numbers than 19/7.

Lakers have too much offensive talent for Trezz to score 19 a game. His ceiling will be more like 15/7 with the Lakers.

Trezz is a better fit for the 2021 Lakers than for the 2021 Clippers. Serge Ibaka is a better fit for the 2021 Clippers. But I don't think Serge Ibaka was a better fit for the 2020 Clippers--or for the 2020 Lakers either, come to think of it...


This chemistry thing is tricky. If it were just building fantasy teams, the Rockets would be going on a three-peat.
