Team game. They pass the ball around, play defense and they have shooters

Lakers: ISO game, 1-2 passes, No Defense what so ever, no hustle players, can't rebound the list is endless LOL

Nice job Bron for putting this team together
NBA 1st team: Magic Johnson, Michael Jordan, Larry Bird, Tim Duncan, Kareem
NBA 2nd team: John Stockton, Kobe Bryant, T-Mac, Karl Malone, Wilt Chamberlain

Melo is leading the freaking league in techs this season. The shooting has cooled off which I knew it would but I don’t mind. If he can level off at his current percentages he’s still a decently valuable piece, but he needs to chill on these stupid frustration techs.
Numbers rule the universe.

i'm calling this one early ... As I don't think I'll be watching the game

Lakers VS Utah ... Utah is the Lakers 1st hard team they'll play against after the stretch of easy games that should all win.

Lakers will lose VS Utah Jazz

Calling it early

Edit: Grizzlies are ok team, but think we'll be fine against them. Nuggets If all healthy could be a challenge, but If we/Lakers are playing well, we'll be fine - Utah is the real first challenge over the next 5 games OR so- 17th

No Gobert though and Whiteside is questionable. Udoka/Gay vs LeBron would be interesting

Nunn and Monk

I'm not going to say I know anything about either one, but I'm curious about something

Monk is playing great Ball atm and doing everything we wanted Kuzma to be which is a consistent scorer?

I know nothing about Nunn either, so I'm curious to know, with all the HYPE that Nunn has and that his a good player, where will that leave MONK? surely there not enough playing time for them both?

Edit: Maybe one of them could play SF and they'll both be in the line up

Bron
Davis
Nunn
Monk
Russ

Memphis has won eleven straight. The next best streak in the league belongs to Charlotte, at four. The Grizzlies beat Minnesota at home tonight, then face the Mavericks at home tomorrow night.

Hi guys. I have a random question. What was your impression of Jemmerio Jones in the time he was with you guys?

Honestly don't remember... I can't remember a highlight or any significant minutes he had... So maybe that tells you something...

Likewise, he has the physique for a wing, so he looks the part but maybe someone who watched summer league knows more because he neither had much opportunity, nor showed anything worth noting when he did.

He was a fun hustle player in that time frame at the end of Lebron’s first year when he was out injured and Caruso was breaking out. Didn’t really do or play much this year on his return

Jemmerio? See, we had KCP and all the Dawgs in house already. Now we gotta guess if Jemmerio is good enough or qualified. SMH. Pelinka, what have you done

I know the Kings got Sabonis who is a great big but I would not have given up Haliburton.

Calling it now ...

If Lakers can't trade Westbrook

Then Vogel goes.

I agree. I like the Nets. And to me, Seth curry is a giant move for them. Joe Harris doesn't show up in the big moments, weve all seen that. Seth Curry is the answer

Rockets just waived Enes. Seems like the perfect guy for the Lakers to target.

Wait, what, Porzingis got traded for Bertans and Dinwiddie? Rob didn't even make the call offering Westbrook there?
