Why is LeBron leading RPM?
Why is he leading his team in on/off?
Why does he still have a higher oncourt +/- than Davis even though the team is on a 3 game losing streak?


Lakers are not a deep team and their offense sucks right now.


Why did LeBron miss that free throw?

It's complete utter bull because we know people would be singing a different tune if their team won. Dont act like you wouldn't. No matter how much you try to write up on that wall of yours at home the many different ways you could hope to discredit it.

What the **** do you people do all day seriously?
“Listen man, thank you Kobe for giving me my roses while I’m still here on this earth,” McGrady said. “He was, listen, I came in, I used to stay at this man’s house. I just knew how gifted he was gonna be, And he just brought the best out of me.

Letting Rondo and Dwight leave town and thinking they could repeat without the tenacity they brought is starting to look like Cuban letting Chandler go off to NY after 2011...

They should have kept Howard. He actually has a pulse. Gasol is done.

Why did the Lakers miss the playoffs before Davis. I watch most laker games and Davis is a beast. Don't gimme no stats I just know these Lakers look a lot like the 2019 Lakers

seriously.

Not even close to fair or relevant to bring up now. It’s an entirely different team, injuries, not much of an off-season. It’s like asking why Brooklyn is better over the last couple weeks than in the bubble last year lol

Just saying I don’t want to hear about how great his “RPM” is.

I consistently see him come up small when the game is close. Late game, clutch situations is when your best player is supposed to be more valuable. Not a liability.

Tonight he actually made a few buckets. Other nights none at all. Still his stans need to acknowledge he really isn’t clutch this year. Stop calling him an mvp candidate, that’s hilarious.

Beal is a legit top 10 player in the nba.


LBJ
KD
Kawhi
Giannis
Luka
Embiid
Curry
Jokic
Harden
Lillard
PGeorge

Beal for me is in the same tier as guys like KAT, Booker, Mitchell/Gobert, CP3, Vucecic , Randle , Lavine

He’s literally 4th in the league in clutch scoring among guys who have played 10+ qualifying games (136 total), and on great efficiency. The only guys ahead of him are Harden, Lillard, and Lavine who has been on fire this season.
