The Lakers don't have enough 3pt shooters.

Right? That PnR skip pass was a thing of beauty.

I really don't know why we don't put the ball in Chuma's hands more to playmake. He seems to put players in better scoring positions than our guards do.


That was actually a bounced pocket pass. Skip passes are crosscourt passes and almost always overhead passes, though they don't have to be. It just means you are skipping someone in the rotation. But I agree that it was gorgeous. I wish we were more unconventional with our offensive roles because you don't have to be a primary ball handler to be capable of running the pick and roll.


Ahhh thanks for the clarification. I never learned the distinction between them other than them just being passed on the bounce.


It's a really common mistake because there are prominent broadcasters that perpetuate it.

Here is a really good example of skip passes:


I am a sucker for guys that throw them. I think it is a really underappreciated skill.

Bamba didn't need to play Harrell that close. He is really struggling against him right now.

God the lakers are garbage without Lebron

This is borderline pathetic
Now i get why AD had to leave the pelicans to actually win games, its because that guy is not a top option on a winning team and needs a star to lead him

I know LBJ is out and Davis is working his way back, but the Lakers are very underwhelming
I still believe in Magic!
Okeke / Isaac / WCJ front court for the future.

Also, Pistons up 10+ in the 4th, we could really do without winning this...

I don't think so. He has about the lowest basketball IQ I've ever seen. There is no rhyme or reason to his decision-making. When he hit that tougher jump shot where he complained about no foul call, he had Bamba standing all alone under the rim right in front of him. He doesn't make reads. In our last game or the game before he passed up a shot to put the ball on the floor and pass it with one second left in the quarter. He just has a sand timer in his brain that tells him to shoot every so often. If he could actually make reads, I'd like him just fine.

At this point I just want Bamba to be a serviceable big man. To me he only shows flashes because of his height, otherwise he has an ok jumper and is trending to be a scrub.

Obviously he's not going to be 100% yet.
