Last year's Lakers team would have shut it down in the third quarter. Night and day difference.

He is literally doing what Kobe told his ass to do 6 years ago. I thought he was playing when he said he told Kobe thank you for calling him soft this summer, but I guess that **** clicked years later

He’s next level Ben Wallace


Great comparison. Also shows you how high kobes iq was for the game. Dwight finally gets it. Only issue is he is going to want to get paid this offseason. Don’t blame him.

He gets that exemption if they are smart

kuz freaking terrible from 3 at 1-8 but added something

AD looked like he was hungover as ****

Dwight putting in the grind again

Daniels can probably be cut at this point.

Bulls got blitzed that second half.
Love this Laker team!

Hat's off to Bron. Another great and efficient performance. Kuz finally quit pressing and played within himself and the defense stepped up when Davis wasn't great to push us through a tough first half.

So many encouraging signs to start this season.


This was easily a game that we could have laid down and took the L. This team plays hard, and they play as a team. Add that to the talent, and it's super encouraging to see. Major props to Vogel. Also, Kuz is only going to get better and better. This is just the beginning

I'm actually wondering where this team would be if Dwight hadn't signed. He's responsible for like 3 of the 6 wins.

I hope he plays enough to get it, but either way, as of right now, he's definitely the MVP, and I don't think it's even close.

Kuz should be that bench scoring option this team needs to stop these long periods where the Lakers can’t get a bucket

When rondo gets back, that’s the 2nd ball handler and then this team will start playing better

6-1. With the expectation to get better

McGee has a great game! Couldn’t touch the court in the 4th.

The defensive potential on this team is unreal. Another 10 blocks tonight.

This team could end up being the best blocking team of all time!

This team is special. What a group effort by this team. Dwight Howard should start. McGee seems like the odd man out in the rotation. I love what I’m seeing from this team. I can feel championship caliber vibe from this team.

Man I'm so glad we’re good again!

I disagree. The issue isn't McGee starting IMHO... it's having Howard's energy with the second unit that's more important. Let the starters hide McGee's issues rather than have him drag down the bench. It's not always about having your best 5 in the starting lineup. Look no further than Lou Williams for that. Having a significant advantage against your opponent when your best 2 players are resting is better than having the top 5 in the starting lineup.

PRety much that sentiment. You go into battle vs the Clippers much better if you have Dwight and Kuz for Harrell and Lou

We are 6-1 and we are flawed and still not the best team we can be. Just saying. Kind of scary how good we could actually end up being. Love this year, love our coaches, and love our org. Been a long time since any of us could say that.
