      What? You don’t think a guy who has only played decent in ONE out of our first eight isn’t dependable?
      He trash.

    Is it possible to have 1 reliable shooting guard? LBJ really off with his passes. Every team will play us like this is the Chip game of their season. Gotta pick it up.

          We outscored them 57-39 in the 2nd half, DJ.

          Howard playing the Center position, created mismatches for AD and Bron.

    Now that was an ugly game from our stand point. So far, pretty much the same as last year, we can’t shoot the 3 and we can’t stop the 3. Not sure Nets can keep that up all season, but? Where were all our 3 and D guys? Sure, only Ex games, but Nets played harder than we did.

      Preseason Deej, keys to preseason: nobody gets injured or put on the shelf.

      AD and Bron were half speeding.

      Let’s save the critical thinking for the practice season :)

        Yeah, but why did Nets shoot 3’s lites out and we haven’t yet? Not concerned about LBJ and AD.

          I have to answer your question with a question, my good friend.

          Like Alice asked once, “Why is a Raven like a Writing desk?” LOL.

          We shot almost 40% from 3.

          I’m impressed we almost made 80% of our FTs, DJ.

          Gotta accentuate the positive, DJ. AD, DG, KCP, Cook can all shoot 75%-80% from the line.

          Our young guys choked at the line cost us at least 5 games.

      Dwyane played 43.3 minutes per game last season and shot a career best 33.0% from deep. He probably will stay retired but, like he said, you never know. Working out with LeBron every day, if somebody on the Lakers gets injured, he just might get the urge to win one more championship. He could probably still contribute. Always was a very crafty and smart player who could do a little of everything.

        Never liked him since his dirty plays against Kobe.
        He can stay retired.

      Disagree-

      Competing internationally on the national team does wonders for guys growth and confidence. I think it’s a missed opportunity because of Pop’s jealousy and spite for the Lakers.

      So I just got back from Australia and was staying at the same hotel as the team. Ran into a few of the assistants at the hotel gym and Harrison Barnes actually showed up. Super nice guy and I wished him well, told him to tell Kuz all of LA is pulling for him, and to bring home the gold. And then Pop came in doing a weird, old guy kooky workout. Really might be time to hang it up.

      Andrew said he can’t put his “heart and soul” into it.

      Smart man, that language means something.

      Constantly being injured or sick, especially when you enough money to support yourself and your family.

      Barry Sanders used similar language.

      I applaud him.

    Wonder if Melo is working out hard? Do we have any interest in Half-ManAmazing? I know Iggy is at our top, but that may not happen?

      Since I think someone will trade for Iggy, I’m okay with Vince since he’s turned himself into a decent shooter in his last few seasons.

        Hopefully, he focuses on his strengths and doesn’t try to do too much. It’s his third season and his “sophomore slump” wasn’t all that horrible except for his three point shooting, which will hopefully improve this season. I think Frank Vogel will be the perfect coach for him.

    Quick little note about Magic’s guys last year, ya’ll don’t think we have made a Big move in the PO’s last year, IF, all would have been healthy? I think so. With a healthy GS team this PO’s wouldn’t have won the Title? HEALTH is BIG!!

      Exactly. Health.

      Which is why playing AD at the 5 for kicks, was a stupid idea, perpetuated by 20 somethings on twitter that’s used as Gospel.

      • LakerTom (Publisher) 3:13 PM on July 14, 2019 Permalink | Log in to Reply

        Anthony Davis at the five was not a “stupid idea, perpetuated by 20 somethings on Twitter.” It was the result of knowledgeable people seeing and understanding that his best position in today’s NBA was as a small ball center as shown by his own performances on the court.

        The simple reality is that Anthony Davis had never won a single playoff game playing power and had only made the playoffs once playing as a forward for the New Orleans Pelicans. The only time he made it, he was swept with a negative 13 plus/minus for the series.

        AD’s best stretch as a professional basketball player came after Boogie went down and AD finally started playing the five. He had his best career stats and winning record. He also won his first playoff game and series, leading the Pelicans to sweep the Portland Trailblazers before losing in five games to the Warriors.

        That’s why people came to the logical conclusion that small ball center was Anthony Davis’ best position.

          He said he was ‘OK’ playing Center for Alvin Gentry.

          That’s as far as he went.

          • LakerTom (Publisher) 3:31 PM on July 14, 2019 Permalink | Log in to Reply

            Anthony Davis in 2018: “I’ll play center or I’ll play forward. It really doesn’t make a difference as long as we are winning.”

            The Lakers will work hard to keep AD from having to guard and bang with bully ball centers but he will play minutes at the five against some teams.

            This is a problem that the Lakers will address best they can but it will continue as long as they have LeBron and a non-stretch five center.

            After LeBron leaves, they will get a true stretch five or stretch four who can guard centers so AD doesn’t have to defend them.

              Arye Abraham is the stupid one, he’s also a fraud and a twitter rumor monger.

              He was wrong and when he got found out, disappeared.

              That’s why.

              I didn’t call you stupid, because you’re an intelligent person.

              He’s definitely stupid.

      Health was the determining factor in this year’s Chip.
      I’m not so sure we would have won it this past season if healthy. We were literally one of the worst shooting team’s in the League. Anyone could have just packed the paint and watched our guys build brick skyscrapers.

      We got a strong team, Deej. I think a trade is likely at ASG break. We’ll need something. We’re gonna find out what.

      Yup. I did a lot of consoling at the base today. Lol. Tomorrow too.

      Kawhi owes the 6 nothing, he said at the beginning of the year this was a “stop” on his journey. He also said “he’d rather compete against LeBron than play with LeBron”

      TO will give him a standing ovation when he comes back to town.

      Hope he pens a nice thank you note soon though. The city treated him well and his family. Be nice if could reciprocate that in a few words.
