      Well, there’s one of the two losses I expected, but not from Orlando. Is there anyone that thinks Zo is not only not good, but untradeable? And would anyone take KCP. Hart shoots lights out, but sits, sheesh. Kuz had a bad game and LBJ was human.

      ORL already has some quality wins early in the season. Hopefully we didn’t look at this as an easy win. .

    We could win the next 8 games. At the least we should take 6 of those. Put us in a nice spot on the PO ladder.

    Okay, an All-Star for a couple guys. Beal might be had. Is Zo playing tonite or is he hurt again?

      Ball’s still questionable.

      Zo needs to be traded for someone who can help us. He just doesn’t fit alongside LeBron. I wish we would have drafted Fox instead. Remember when everyone said he couldn’t shoot? Now look at him. He torched our team.
      Another great game by Chandler. He and JaVale smothered WCS.
      Let’s keep it rollin tomorrow night to go over .500.

        “Entering Saturday night, the 20-year-old was averaging 18.5 points and 7.5 assists on 49.7 percent shooting from the field, including 39.4 percent from three. For context, Fox shot 41.2 percent from the field and 30.7 percent from beyond the arc as a rookie.“
        If we had him instead of Zo, we would only have the Dubs to worry about.
        Maybe someday, we will get the PG position right.
        I’m hoping Lillard will be available at the trade deadline.

    Kuz, Ingy, Ball, Hart are all 23 or under. They are just babies. Still, I get frustrated, but they are so young. Oh, Zub is too, but I’ve given up on him. Doesn’t seem to have passion for the game. Haven’t seen Wagner yet, of course. We still making many mistakes, but 9 games. Hopefully at 20 games we will have better rhythm.

    So who don’t want Jimmy B? Ball is sleepwalking. KCP isn’t giving you nothing, but perhaps he needs 34 minutes? Williams, I feel bad for, he gives nothing from the 5, cuz he ain’t a 5. Wonder why when a guy is hot like Kuz, ya sit him and let him cool off. I wonder how long Maginka are going to stay with Lukieboy? We can wait, but Luke has not had a winning season as Laker coach. Need to calm Dancin Lance a bit, just a bit.

      We desperately need another 5. JaVale can only do what he does; good backup C. And Zubac would have been crushed tonight by KAT.
      And yes, dancing Nance doesn’t help in any way (the dance, that is).

      Ball isn’t helping enough.
      KCP is trash.
      WE NEED a real backup Center.
      Our defense is just plain TURRIBLE and why we aren’t winning.

        KCP is certainly an enigma. He hasn’t been “trash” thus far in his NBA career and certainly wasn’t “trash” last season, which tells me that it is either all in his head or he’s injured. I’ll go with the former. Maybe he just doesn’t fit in because he’s certainly not a Meme Teamer and he isn’t part of the young core fraternity either.

        • mclyne32 (Director) 2:17 PM on October 30, 2018 Permalink | Log in to Reply

          He has been a no show so far.
          I sure hope he figures it out because e need his outside shooting.

    • mclyne32 (Director) 9:59 PM on October 29, 2018 Permalink | Log in to Reply

      We sure could use a big man who plays great D, can handle the ball, pass, run the floor, score and guard multiple positions.
      Magic and Rob failed by letting him walk. HUGE, FAT, FAIL!!!!!!!

    Bradley Beal anyone? Wiz are a mess. Could we do KCP and ?

     
    • LakerTom (Publisher) 4:37 PM on October 29, 2018 Permalink | Log in to Reply

      He has a long term contract and trading KCP would eliminate our cap space to sign KD or Kawhi next summer. Pass! There’s a reason the Wiz suck and BB is part of it. Plays for himself, not the team.

    LT, what we give for Jimmy B?

     
    • LakerTom (Publisher) 4:47 PM on October 28, 2018 Permalink | Log in to Reply

      Nothing unless I was sure he was going to re-sign and sure AD would not be available, which we probably wouldn’t know until next summer. We might be smarter to trade KCP for a backup center who has an expiring contract, like Willie Cauley-Stein. Solve our backup center problem and remain flexible. If we have $38M, we could sign Kawhi and have money left over to keep Rondo or WCS.

      Jimmy is a great two-way player and we could sign him without risk as a free agent next summer. However, there are three other free agents -- AD, Kawhi, and Klay -- ahead of him imo. So it’s hard for me to see a scenario where we make a trade for him. The problem is also matching salaries in a midseason trade. He makes $20.4M. We would have to give up Ingram, Hart, and KCP, which is too much.

        Yeah, always wondering. Not sure why NO would trade AD? I would for sure do KCP for WCS. We are gonna consistently get beat up by good scoring centers and big forwards when JMc is benching.

        • LakerTom (Publisher) 4:59 PM on October 28, 2018 Permalink | Log in to Reply

          If AD tells Pels he’s not going to re-sign, then they will need to trade. Can’t risk losing him for nothing. Then it will be Lakers vs Celtics to get AD. I doubt Danny would give up Tatum but Magic will give up Ingram.

          • LakerTom (Publisher) 5:02 PM on October 28, 2018 Permalink | Log in to Reply

            This would all happen next summer before free agency. Imagine how attractive the Lakers would be with LeBron and AD? Kawhi would follow.

            By signing with Klutch Sports, AD pretty much announced he would be leaving.

      I’m hoping that the Pels don’t put AD on the market at least until next year. If he goes on the market prior to the draft the Celtics have 4 first round picks to add to a trade. This could be the last year the Celtics have a lot of draft picks to throw into a trade depending how the Griz and Clippers finish. One of those picks is the Kings and it’s only top one protected. I am sure Ainge would trade them all to land AD. If AD makes it to free agency it wouldn’t be hard to make room for both Kawahi And AD with the cap raising to 118mil in two years.

      • LakerTom (Publisher) 5:36 PM on October 28, 2018 Permalink | Log in to Reply

        I don’t know whether the Pels would want to completely rebuild but nobody can match Dany’s treasure chest. Pels may want young players ready to be stars. Ingram, Kuzma, and Hart vs. Tatum, Brown, and Rozier could be more important than picks. AD will bring a haul.

        The big question is what does AD want. Celtics aren’t going to give away the store if AD says he want to be a Laker. A lot depends on what kind year Ingram and the Lakers young core have as well as how Boston’s young guns do. Trade value could change dramatically by then.

          The Celtics could easily throw in Horford too to land AD. That plus Rozier et all is basically the team that almost won the ECF last year.

          Don’t think they’ll even think of trading Tatum though.The guy is too good.

          • LakerTom (Publisher) 5:49 PM on October 28, 2018 Permalink | Log in to Reply

            Don’t disagree. My point is Pelicans are going to be interested in proven young stars more than draft picks. They need to take advantage next summer unless AD agrees to sign a supermax to stay. The haul they could get is too good to miss.

              Can you imagine if the Lakers manage to land KD AND Thompson next year?

            • LakerTom (Publisher) 6:14 PM on October 28, 2018 Permalink

              How about if we land AD and Kawhi?

  • DJ2KB24

    DJ2KB24 3:41 PM on October 22, 2018 Permalink  

    I am thinking that nearly every team we play will look at it as a PO game becuase of what we are trying to build. Ya know, “show em they can’t build it.”

    • LakerTom (Publisher) 12:47 PM on October 22, 2018 Permalink | Log in to Reply

      The only problem is that who stays and who plays will likely have a huge impact on who might want to come here next summer. The kids all are aware that the front office wants three superstars and only has the cap space to add a second superstar. That means either one of the kids proves he’s good enough to be that third superstar… or … there’s a good chance 2 or more of them will be traded for AD or another elite player to be the third superstar. That pressure is going to have an impact on the kids play and could have been part of why he blew up against Houston. He knows it’s time he proves he can be that next superstar or will likely be dealt like D’Angelo Russell was.

    Popping my 2 cents, “It’s early in the Pre-season, very, very early in the Pre-season….” LBJ is what we thought he was, lol! Liked Hart, McGee, Kuz, Ingy and especially Rondo, not so good was KCP and Zub is out of his league, imho.

      Thing to keep in mind with Zub is he can be waived at any time until February or so. He’s on one of the cheaper deals and we don’t have much going for us in the ‘size’ department. KCP has been tough to watch, just looks totally lost out there. Odd considering he’s one of the players returning to the same system…

      Who you want to start on Wed, DJ? I’m leaning to Sevie but with a short leash, Boone will go with Happ, which is also OK to me. Funny how that one game comes down to which pitcher has his best stuff that day. Go, Yankees.
