The green, bradley, lebron, ad and dwight lineup has scary defensive potential. Loving how Dwight has bought into his role, a lot better than he did with Kobe. He a beast defensively.

Feels good to have Lakers basketball back man. Getting consistent wins feels damn good. Lebron and AD walking that talk so far, love to see it.

Like many have said, we aren’t even playing well and we are winning. We are going to be super scary come playoff time. Love this. So happy for us lakers fan. We have been through hell and now we got ourself a championship contender


Yup, Vogel has been good. The minutes for McGee are going down and the minutes for Caruso and Dwight are going up. Feels nice to have a real coaching staff. I was a major critic of Luke and his college buddies. Glad we got some basketball chops on the bench.

Impressive defense once again, and very quality W despite shooting an horrendous 25% 3pt. When this team starts shooting at 35%+ which is very capable of, we will be absolutely unstoppable.
Arguably the greatest franchise ever

You surround the king with vets plus center who aren’t playing for a contract and they will defend

This team is dabbing on the haters in exactly the right way: by playing tough winning basketball. Nothing is free, get the mindset right from the very first day instead of trying to find this frame of mind during the playoffs.

We are still a below league average 3pt shooting team. Hopefully that improves as time goes on.

still too early but the Lebron/Bradley/Green/AD/Dwight lineup is looking really formidable through six games

One of my three big concerns with this team, along with health and depth.

Who sets up good looks though? I mean I do t want Caruso, Cook, or Daniels trying to set it up or find their own. But if that’s Rondo the passes are on point, in pocket, with the shooters set. Rondo himself and his 36% threes will help

Without having any data to back this up, I don't think we have a problem with getting guys open to hit shots.... Guys are just not hitting uncontested jumpers. defenses are collapsing when LeBron goes to the rack or when AD is in the low post. Guys are just missing.

Let's not overlook the bulls and have them run all over us, making this road trip end on a bad note.

I believe the lakers are close to last in shooting wide open shots if you exclude Danny Green

So if the lock down defense falls off a bit we can expect the open jumpers to start going in

So be afraid nba

Yet we're 5-1. When you can score in the paint like we can and force FT's like we can 3's become less important to us than most other teams.

For sure. I just don't know how this plays out against top tier teams
