Alright so our schedule

Jazz- L

Portland - Lillard going for 70 L

GSW - Curry going for 80 L

Suns - Massive L

Kings - Maube a W but most likely an L

Dayum we might get eviscerated these coming games. I mean we couldn't hold a 17 points lead against the worst defense how in the **** are we supposed to win against anyone really.

Gonna be fantastic watching our guys go 5/550 from 3 next 5 games. BUT ITS ONLY FEBRUARY!

Is that not at least fair to bring up now?

You can't fluke a series in the playoffs, every team was on the same standing. Most of those teams underperforming this season are because of fatigue and injury from those playoffs.

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.


Ok, so ignorance is one answer

Alright so now that i got all the anger out of the way. We still need to get a trade for a rim protector. Sacrifice W to get AD fully healthy and hopefully by the time playoffs comes we'll be clicking on all cylinders. But we cant play Lebron 40 minutes FFS what the hell are we doing?

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

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


I was wrong about Gasol. I thought he would help the Lakers on d but it's been the opposite. Javale would be nice right now.

Gasol has been very good on defense. The issue is offense for the Lakers

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

Beal is better then both George and Lillard this season

What do you guys want for Beal? Who are some guys

I feel like Utah should look at Mitchell and picks/swaps for Beal

Conley, Beal, Royce, Bogdan, Gobert
Clarkson, Ingles, Niang, Favors

Okay wing defense, very good interior d, elite 3 point shooting, very good system, multiple guys who can score and create for others (conley, Beal, Bogdan, clarkson, and Ingles), and I think Beal can be a #1 on offense on a loaded team like Utah

Shannon is at least entertaining and a hall of fame athlete. The only purpose Wright serves is to be permanently tethered to Bron’s rear end. Other than that he has no talent as a sports analyst whatsoever

He can and is, hence the close losses. He was only starter with a positive +/- and he was +11 last loss to Miami. With Schroeder out there is no one else on the team who can lead an offense when LeBron sits.

Remove Westbrook from their team...how good are they?

Lakers losing AD is even worse.

Judging RGM just few weeks ago they are better team without Westbrook.

Wizards are better when Russell plays like this.

Incredible balance and I have to give Tommy Shepherd credit. The international players can all ball. l
