Might have been more useful than Kuzma to the Lakers?

Wish this narrative would stop. Lakers had to trade Ingram over Kuzma to get AD or the salaries would never have matched.

Austin Rivers: other Harden there is no player that can score 60 points in 3 quarters?
Kobe says hi!
I mean that is playing now.
Klay Thompson says hi!

What did Booker have at the end of 3 a couple years ago?

Next two games vs Denver and Utah scare me. Both teams are coming home and trying to turn this around after some disappointing basketball. Lakers need to be locked in or else losing 3 in a row is very likely.

I think we're going to drop some games this trip... I might even go so far as to say it's by design. I don't think we honestly want to be working this hard all season... We also haven't been playing that well but muscling out wins and that's bound to bite us.

I think we need to drop a few games in a row to force us to take a good look at who we are and make some adjustments.

I expect a blow-out this trip. Hopefully not against the Clips.

Westbrook scored 19 points tonight... On 30 shots... 30 shots to score 19 points.

He should get a DNP-CD next game for that garbage.

I watched a few of their early season games.... he also has air balled a couple FT's to the side of the basket again. That is just flat out baffling.... short happens to everyone at least once in a career it seems but to miss the basket entirely to one side from 15' is truly a flawed stroke.

That said I had hoped that getting out of the timeline of LA would change it for him. Looks like it might take more time.

I expected a turnaround as well, I’m not sure what’s going on with him. The talent is there, it’s almost like he has no inner drive.

Anyone else rooting for the Blazers to get the 8th spot while we're at #1 for a James-Anthony playoffs matchup?

Nope. I would like to avoid Dame if possible. Dame + McCollum will be a tough match up for our guards but I'm confident we could still win if we happen to meet them in the playoffs.

The maturing of Devin Booker is surprising to me. He's not a very likable player from a personality standpoint but scoring is up... efficiency is way up... assists are up and senseless chucking and hero ball are down. Being an Azzclown personally is steady however.

ALMOST? Worthy I'm calling you out on that statement.

Ball had more spotify tracks than he had made free throws last season. He released 21 tracks on Spotify and made 20 free throws all of last season for us. That should tell you about his work ethic right there. He has no inner drive, don't qualify it with "almost like"

I would love to see Rondo unleashed on those fools with AD again :lol:

Im so glad we rid of lonzo and Hart per the package both of these non impactful for either team and are basically filler now. Hindsight looking much better in us getting the better deal now as those two are addition by subtraction. (Ingram too somewhat but most would argue against that)
Could care less about the four lottery picks.

Its been a looooooong time since I’ve seen an opposing arena’s fans leaving the game early. Kobe and Pau days. Man I love this!

Lonzo with a 1-9 fg 0-7 3 pt performance. I'm so glad we don't have to deal with that dude and his bull. Even Ingram has come back to his usual passive stuff after a hot start.
