      But that’s none of my business.

      Not sure if Luke’s steadfast insistence in bringing Clarkson off the bench is helping things at this point, especially if D’Angelo is out for the full, or more, 2 weeks. Might be time to try a major shake up.

    Luke Walton: ‘Frustrating’ Effort By Team In Worst Loss In Lakers’ History 

    Tim McMahon ESPN Staff Writer

    DALLAS — The Los Angeles Lakers’ rebuilding project reached a new low Sunday afternoon with the most lopsided loss in franchise history, a 122-73 rout at the hands of the Dallas Mavericks.

    “We didn’t show up to play, honestly, which is frustrating,” first-year Lakers coach Luke Walton said after the 49-point drubbing. “Honestly, it’s embarrassing for us as a team and for us as an organization, for our Laker fans that are so good to us.

    “Again, at this point it is not about every night going out and winning. It is playing a certain style that allows you a chance to win while we are trying to build this thing. It’s about getting better and building on games like our last game, and not being satisfied with it. …

    “The effort just wasn’t there tonight, which I don’t understand. I love our group of guys and I know we are going to bring it next game, but that’s not who we are. It was frustrating tonight.”

    The previous worst margin of defeat in Lakers history was 48, which occurred in a 123-75 loss at Utah last March. This was the most lopsided game in the NBA this season.

    The loss came on the 11-year anniversary of Kobe Bryant’s historic 81-point performance against the Raptors, the second-most points scored by a single player in a game in NBA history.

    The Mavericks (15-29) extended their winning streak in the series to 13 games, blowing the game open by outscoring the Lakers 38-11 in the second quarter. Los Angeles had more turnovers (five) than field goals (four on 17 attempts) during the quarter.

    “Tough game. That’s it,” said guard Jordan Clarkson, one of only two Lakers to score in double figures during the loss. “A loss is a loss.”

    The Lakers (16-32) have dropped six of their last seven games. Four of those losses have come by double digits, including a 40-point loss to the San Antonio Spurs and Sunday’s historic humiliation.

    Lakers power forward Julius Randle said his team should be embarrassed by the poor effort. There was not a consensus opinion in the locker room about whether the Lakers should simply move on from the loss as quickly as possible or try to use it for motivation.

    “We’ve got to let it go,” shooting guard Nick Young said. “It’s a tough loss, but we can’t dwell on it. We’ve still got, how many more games left? Thirty-something? Forty-something? We’ve just got to keep going. We can’t let this one determine the whole year. We’ve got to keep fighting.”

    Rookie Brandon Ingram, who struggled as the starting point guard in place of injured starter D’Angelo Russell, offered a dissenting view.

    “It’s something for us to remember as these games go on,” said Ingram, who finished with six points on 2-of-12 shooting, with no assists and three turnovers while being a team-worst minus-45 in 36 minutes. “We let it hurt now and keep getting better and always remember the results.”

    The Lakers are only one win away from matching last season’s win total. They got off to a surprising 10-10 start, briefly fueling hope that they could compete for a playoff spot well ahead of the expected timetable, but are only 6-22 since then.

    Walton, however, firmly insisted that he has no concerns about his team’s culture despite the losses stacking up and Sunday’s horrible performance.

    “Not at all,” Walton said. “We’re headed in the right direction. We’re going to get to where we need to go and I’m excited about it. It’s just a bad game, one you face the pain and you use it to motivate you and move on.”

        Los Angeles has never been a Raider nation.
        it’s just that the Rams stunk things up and then left, first for Anaheim and then for St. Louis.

        LA has always been, first and foremost, Lambs country.

      I watched the first 6 minutes of the first video. There is no denying he is one of the most athletic men to walk this earth. There is no denying he’d been great in any era because of that athleticism. There is also no denying that some of those guys in those clips would be better suited playing in the Ivy League in today’s era.

        If Wilt was in today’s era, his game would have spiked to another level as well. He would have been an even better conditioned athlete than he was. Comparing eras is the most absurd thing anyone can do. He was the Babe Ruth of his era and that’s all there is to it. Whether the talent was inferior is meaningless.

            On top of that, he blocked 2 consecutive KAJ skyhooks. The video does freeze-frames to show what heights Wilt attains in his blocks.

            “Some of those guys” include numerous Boston Celtic HOFers, Kareem, West, Baylor, Oscar Robertson, Willis Reed. It’s not surprising that people who’ve not had the opportunity to see him in action are skeptical about his ability.

            Guys, on average, in todays games are nowhere near the athlete’s the guys gave been in the past. Fouls were a lot more vicious then. Defense was way more tenacious and hard contact was far more frequent and rampant. Jerry Wedt had his nose broken nine times.

            Lastly, to show you what kind of athlete Wilt was, in several seasons he averaged more than 47.0 minutes per game. Try and get your head around this one -- 1962 he averaged 48.5 minutes per game.

              What part of me saying hes an all time great basketball player as well as an all time athlete isnt clear? I saw the 2 blocks on Kareem, Ive seen the footage of him against other HOF players. My point IS that he wouldnt have those numbers because outside of those few HOF players and one or two good teams….he played against an inferior league overall.

              Stop stop stop with the nostalgic romance of how you viewed the league as more athletic then today, thats irrational. Guys on average in todays game are nowhere near the athletes of guys in the past???? Say what??? You are right, they are twice as athletic overall today. Its like climate change its not up for debate its science with empirical evidence….not based on opinion and memory from a long time ago.

              if Magic Worthy and King couldn’t get anything on Wilt and 4 college players, the rest of the NBA would be in trouble too. true greatness is measured by itself.

              He wasnt crazily dominant in the “real season” when he did play so I dont suspect it would be any different RIGHT NOW.

              I judge a player’s greatness on what he does in the playoffs when strategy and competition prevails over going through the motions of the long regular season playing 50% of the weak league (80% when he played).

              Don’t know why you think players were inferior in Wilt’s day. What evidence do you have of that? Wilt was not the problem with his team’s performance in the playoffs. He did his part. 22.5 pts 24.5 rebounds 47.2 mins .545 fg% career playoff stats. He played until he was 36. In his earlier years he had playoffs wherein he averaged 28.2 pts, 30.2 rebounds and 48 mins. He had an 9.0 avg assist playoff year. So, he was just as dominant in the “real season”. I guess you think West, Baylor, Sir Charles, Karl Malone, Vince Carter, Chris Webber, Allen Iverson, Melo, Kevin Durant, Patrick Ewing, Dominique Wilkins, George Gervin, TMac, Reggie Miller, Steve Nash were all subpar in the “real” season.

      Some people can’t seem to correlate greatness to a paradigm. The skill set, athleticism and talent from Wilt’s NBA is no less than today’s. The same way Shaq dominated Ben Wallace, Wilt would dominate Shaq.

      Ah, the biggest whiney crybabies of them all, scorned democrats. Being an independent, I find it so hilarious how unwilling you are to give the president elect the chance to succeed or fail yet Obama detractors at least gave him the opportunity to fail without the crying, protests, and hatred. Yep, get a good giggle every time you doom and gloomer’s utter such vitriol.

        An “independent”? LOL! Sounds like your knowledge of Trump’s behavior and past dealings is pretty limited. It also sounds like you’re a conservative because only a conservative would call “scorned democrats” “crybabies.” Sounds like you are a liar who even lies to himself to me. You also must be all the “ists” who Trump catered to. If you really expect this disturbed human being to change, then you live in the same alternative reality as him and his warped supporters.

          Anytime you want to debate politics, bring it. My goodness what a piece of work you are. Typical, name calling because you can’t admit what an atrocious president Obama was. But heck he’s black so we have to turn a blind eye to his inadequacies and corruption of administration. So bring it or STFU punk.

            There you go. Typical right winger. So get your argument started Mr. Independent (lol!), why was Barack Obama an “atrocious” President? Come on, bring it.

            BTW, you can’t ignore your GOP Congress obstructing everything he wanted to do, including blocking all his Court appointments and you also can’t ignore the inferno he walked into after the failed Presidency of George W Bush, both at home and abroad. And you can’t ignore the fact that he killed Bin Laden and bailed out GM. You also can’t ignore that the unemployment rate is lower than at any time since 2007, that 17 mil jobs have been created, that the prices at the pump are low, that inflation has been held in check and that we only have about 18,000 troops on the ground now. Ready, set, go …. !!!

            You know, I’m sick of these closet racist who assail President Obama as anything less than stellar -- yet they can never pinpoint anythjng that he did -- other than swat the fly on national tv. The ignoramouses cite his “policies” or the worn out “Benghazi” dialog. But, nothing specifaclly directly connected to him.

            To make the statement:

            “But heck he’s black so we have to turn a blind eye to his inadequacies and corrupt administration.” just shows your true nature. Where, exactly, are his “inadequacies”, Sir. Point them out to me. Or, are you just parrotng the racist bigotry of some cronies? Likewise, where is this “corruption” of which you speak? Or do you not have the balls, or brains, to cite it? Or, maybe, it’s because it doesn’t exist and your whole problem is the color of his skin.

            Like Orange Julius has a ton of insight, and expertise to brinb to the table.

          “HYPOCRISY “? Maybe the Dems should just take their contingency plan from the example left by ghe GOP -- and rewarf Trump with yhe same cooperation that the GOP gave to Obama. How ’bout that?

      My responses will come in due time. I love it that people think they can express their views without repercussions, you put it on a blog and it’s gospel. You start the fight then get all bent out of shape when someone disagrees with you and then make assumptions of that person cause they don’t share the same views. Inevitably, you the pull out your trump card (no pun intended) and play the race game.
      I want to make this point perfectly clear, I voted for neither Trump or Clinton but did vote for Obama the previous 2 elections.
      I use to post here with regularity but rarely do now because of Keen and Tate, you’ve made this blog unbearable to enjoy with your holier than thou attitudes and sophomoric needling and goading. You think you can call people names but rarely have anything fresh to say, just rehashing of old material. Well I guess this IS your outlet to say wtf you want. So after I take you to task on this, you’ll never hear from me again on this blog.
      I also see you’re making preemptive excuses and giving questionable credit to the man we’re about to critique , just remember you asked for it, so be prepared to look like ill-informed, pseudo-intellectual mimics of the moderate media.
      It’s so “hopeless” as someone said (should I name her?) because their candidate, their party, didn’t win. How arrogant and full of yourself can one be. Like I said before, makes me giggle.

        I love these liars who said they voted for Obama twice and despite the obvious hole he dug us out of at home and his common sense foreign policy, suddenly he’s one of the worst Presidents ever. After W, someone had to earn the USA respect among our allies again, and he did that. He didn’t bow to a-holes like Putin or Netanyahu either. He’s been tough, but hasn’t wasted money on useless wars. you are full of such crap. You voted for Trump, you never voted for President Obama and you are NOT an independent. You’re a Know Nothing liar.

        You have no responses, you cutpurse. The race card was introduced by you. Obama is twice the man that your hero George W or your bromance Cheeto Guy. And I seriously doubt that you voted for Obama. Your Jim Crow vitriole betrays your claim. You’re about as independent as Newt Gringrich.

      lol, I voted for Obama 2008 because Bush nearly ruined this country. I voted for him again in 2012 because I believed he earned the right to finish his vision. Now I won’t go into details at this time as to why I believe he had a failed presidency and I definitely over-stated my comments earlier but that was for effect. Just look at your responses, so impulsive, so angry, so expected. You can dish it out but can’t take it. Trump scares the hell out of me, and I have ultimate respect for Obama the person but after 8 years I can look back and look at his presidency without prejudice. You show so much ignorance with your rants and assumptions that maybe Michelle Obama was right after all, there is no hope, but it’s not because of Trump winning the election.

              It would be nice if you joined Trollman and therealhtj on the sidelines and quit posting altogether. As for Trollman’s inability to set forth facts why President Obama’s presidency was some sort of failure, thats because his premise must start with his failure to rally a bunch of right wing nut jobs around his policies, or at all, as typified by Mitch McConnell’s refusal to hold a vote on Merrick Garland, an absolute violation of the Constitution. Whether Obama’s policies would benefit small businesses or other right wing causes, the GOP was going to block him at every point. He couldn;t even get court appointees through. So that’s Obama’s fault? Hey Trollman, you wanted a discussion, well here it is. Despite ALL of that, unemployment is down, the economy is slowly growing (an accomplishment after what he was handed by W 8 years ago), wgaes are starting to rise, the price of gas is down, inflation is under control, Al Qaeda is a shell of its former self, great progress is being made on destroying ISIS (yeah, I know, Obama created ISIS), etc, President Obama brought dignity to the White House, itv was scandal free and he remained string and dignified through all the crap thrown at him by the other side for 8 years. Yet the stupid voters who think we’re going in the “wrong direction” voted the same sh!ts in who sent them on their imaginary path and put a cherry on top be electing Trump. If your reasoning is that we wound up with Trump because of Obama’s failures, then please elaborate how Obama failed us.

        “Now I won’t go into details at this time as to why I believe he had a failed presidency and I definitely over-stated my comments earlier but that was for effect.”

        That’s basically standard protocol for the right. NO ONE can pinpoint or itemize the flaws, failures or downfalls of Obama’s presidency.

        “…..yet Obama detractors at least gave him the opportunity to fail without the crying, protests, and hatred.”. Are you kidding me?! Obama’s election gave rebirth to racism in this country. Jim Crow Jr took his first breath because of it.

        On top of that, Obama was a lot more qualified to be president than this buffoon. His own businesses fail at an alarming rate. His fraudulent endsavors end him up in court. He cheats people out of their hard earned payments due, sexually assaults women and is aided by Russia in an election.

        Your cavalier attitude in the matter says a lot about you. If you don’t want to pist here because of me, then, by all means, have a nice trip.
