I mean. If cousins doesn’t get hurt. Dwight might have not signed with any team. He was so toxic 3 months ago. The contract the Lakers have him on is totally contingent on Dwight not messing up

Now he is dominating again like its 2010

Love it. I don’t think Dwight has to start. It’s up to McGee honestly. If McGee wants to come off the bench, fine, you have to realize he won championships starting 18 mins a game. He can be a fine starter. Let Dwight come in, and do his thing, and close. Dwight can possibly turn it up when needed. No need to push it.


Lakers have an average starting center. (McGee)
The best backup center in the nba (Dwight)
And also arguably the best center IN THE NBA in AD

Lakers have started slow a few games. That’s true. They still win. But slow starts. That clippers game was nuts. The level of intensity in that game, the first game of the season, was near playoff levels of intensity. The crowd was 100% into it. Lakers are a better team, that crowd won them that game. Lakers lost the first game of the season, and have been on the upswing since then.

This Lakers train is gonna keep rolling

Dwight is the 3rd star in disguise. AD. Lebron. Dwightmare 2.0

Kuz and rondo are not even back

This team is gonna dominate

AD. MVP and DPOY. Not impossible.


Let’s go Lakers. I haven’t been this pumped since pau gasol was traded to the Lakers and that few hours period where Chris Paul was a Laker

We got LeBron and ad. Dwight in a good place. And let’s go. Half a decade ago I had a dream about ad and LeBron in Lakers purp and gold winnings championships. And... well... dreams become your reality

Let’s do this.
Championship or bust

This is the Lakers.

LeBron needs 2 with the Lakers for me. 2 rings, and maybe you can better all time than Kobe or mj
USA Celtics in full effect. Amazing chemistry building experience right there for the main core of the team


Proceeds to finish 7th and shames the entire nation!

Weve gotta figure out the scheme to take down the clips. That defense is for real. And they have players that can take bron out of the game. That happens, were gonna have to scheme a pathway to success

We played our first game together as a team with a new coach/system etc. and lost to them in a winnable game. Let's see how round two goes against them before hitting the panic button.

Meaning what? Their win means nothing or our first game as a team un a new system isn't a possible reason we lost?
