I love this. I feel like these last two games is the first time i actually feel like Lebron is a Laker. His demeanor last season was completely different

It’s funny yet sad. This older Lebron and this diminished Dwight are easily the two best guys AD ever played with besides Cousins

I like the game Lebron is playing actually. I don't see any drop off from last year.... just a different approach. Getting Davis comfortable is actually a veteran superstar move.

That’s actually insulting to Rondo. He goes at a faster pace. That and he can handle being pressed without turning his back to the defender the whole way to half court.

The LeBron hate is so strong lol.

I don’t like his pace getting it up the court or even him wasting the energy to do it, and he’s expending some because he doesn’t have a tight handle that can get him by people.

I have no problem with him dictating the half court O at all but I think you gain another 3-5 seconds every possession of he had someone to advance the ball and give it to him across the line.

I don't like him bringing the ball up the court either. We've looked really good with Caruso bringing the ball up and getting it to LeBron on the wing/elbow.

Dwight currently has 16/10 and 4 blocks. That's what you call getting it done.

Man, the impact AD is going to have on Lebron this season will be incredible. Lebron can coast as much as he wants and let AD do the heavy lifting then impose his will on the game when he's ready. Dude is a +15 tonight while barely trying...

I think he's earned a starting spot over McGee to be honest.

Is this the best team Dwight has been a part of?

AD hurt?

After that botched dunk in the 3rd he looked like he was favoring his shoulder

I would say so. He’s making the most of his opportunity I’ll say.

Being able to ride AD all season will be huge. He carried the load during the first 3 quarters and then LeBron blew it wide open in the 4th.

Yeah, I saw that and wasn't sure if it meant something or not... When they showed the slow-mo of that dunk he jammed on the rim, his hand and wrist bent back in a really ugly way... Then later he kind was rotating and flexing that arm from the shoulder down.

I wondered if he strained his peck... he was rubbing it a few times after the missed dunk.
