I’m sure Vogel is hoping this is the case. Otherwise you know they’ll make a scapegoat out of him. It’s unlikely to be Pelinka due to the Kobe connection.

Tough loss but I’m encouraged by the play of Westbrook in these last 2 games. If he’s over his funk, then I have confidence that he, Lebron, and AD can carry this roster till the trade deadline. At that point, it’s on Pelinka. If he doesn’t grab this team another bigger wing or stretch big, we’re screwed, lol.

Blame has to be dropped all around. Because even when Bron was playing, we were barely making it happen. Maybe its a good thing having short contracts. Get rid of guys faster. After Brons time is done, he gets props for The Chip. But we gotta move on quickly to new players, fresh talent and younger pieces. This play looks stale

THT is 4-27 over the last 3..... that's hard to do in 89 minutes.

Hopefully his fans won’t blame Vogel for not knowing how to maximize his great talent :roll:

THT is probably going to be trade bait during the deadline. Rob is going to do everything he can to turn this season around, and I'm sure he's hearing it from Klutch camp that LBJ doesn't have time for this BS and he wants to reach MJ by any means necessary.

I’d be happy if he wasn’t 0-1000 in help and team defensive rotations as he’s always lost off the man with the ball. Last yeah he bumbled into Kuzma, KCP, and Caruso when the team scrambled and often doubled, switched, rotated wrong and he’s so damn lost in that zone concept that once you swing it his way it’s over

lakers arent smart enough as a team. certain players arent in agreement with the distribution of power and the way the team is ran. bunch of idiots.. and when the main idiot is the one being pushed as the leader. this is what you get. im talking about ad,melo,or russ. pick one

I was actually encouraged by the team's play last night, apart from the abysmal first five minutes, when they scored 7 points. They were already down 12 halfway through the quarter. Once they got back into the game, a little at a time, the main problem was attempting and missing a lot of three-pointers. Patience! If they had tried driving & cutting more in the fourth, the outcome might have been different.

Can't go down by 25 points. Takes too much energy to come back. Westbrook played a good game for once.

I tried to monitor the last free agency and couldn’t find any reports about other teams actually offering THT a huge contract unlike Caruso so I was confused why didn’t they just gave him a qualifying contract offer just to keep him, wasn’t that even an option?

He pretty much was going to get that deal no matter what because of the Gilbert Arenas rule. All they had to do was make sure they gave it over another team poison pulling them like Jeremy Lin
