Seems odd that the Lakers Twitter account hasn't wished Trez happy birthday.

Okay, just out of curiosity, checked the free agency wire on Centers. I have no idea who any of those dudes are...

Happy belated birthday to Trez. I am really happy you are on our team and wish you the best. Youre a big part of our success this year I know it.
I hope you read this.

Based on articles about a month ago the Lakers will try to get a deal done with Dennis in February. Can we extend Trez at the same time or do we have to wait until the Offseason?

Could he be a Jehovah's Witness?

I tried to find out but in my searches, the only thing that jumped out was that his mom and dad are named Sam and Selena... But they named their kids Montrezl, Cadarius and Quatauis... No judgment, just sort of hilarious.

Good point, I didn't think of that. I find it hard to believe that the Lakers would drop the ball.

I have to give props to the hobos. They have been playing seamlessly and they have been keeping quiet so that is good. I think they got their perspective and attitudes in order (and shouldn't change throughout this season), so I give them major props for that.

Something that is rare for us this season for some reason. The perspective and attitude by the team leads.
I concern majorly for our chances in the postseason. If the hobos get by us this year, hey, kudos. I wish them well.

Is Oladipo expected to get close to a max contract? If his recent injuries keep the money down, maybe the Lakers can try and sign him instead of Schroder this summer.

Anyone watching the Nets v Clips game. Quality basketball.

Irving & KD can't stop anyone from driving around them at the perimeter, but boy is offense easy for this team.

Watching this Nets-Clippers game. Can't help but get excited with the growth of Zubac, giving DJ all he can handle. Happy for all our draft picks' success in their respective teams. Fun roster:

Lonzo Ball
D'Angelo Russell/Jordan Clarkson/Svi Mykhailiuk
Brandon Ingram/Josh Hart
Larry Nance Jr.
Thomas Bryant/Ivica Zubac

Pretty solid 9 man rotation there

Yeah those 2 are cheat codes. Need a bucket? Give the ball to either

And props to Harden, been playing solid defense in this game. Goes to show he can be engaged if he doesn't need to carry the offensive burden by himself/when he trusts his teammates

Yeah.. And Harden's growth as a true all around offensive player(scoring and creating for others) has been incredibly underrated because of his playoff losses and off court drama. I felt what he did to Houston this year was distasteful, but he hasn't put a foot wrong since. Easily, their best player since the trade.

Meanwhile Pistons gave the Nets a wire to wire beat down. Jerami Grant proving to be quite a player.
