    Instead of Butler, wonder if Walker would be available? Would that we could grab Beal (see his play today, he’s darn good) and still figure a way to sign KD or such.

      DJ, If we traded for Beal, we would not be able to sign KD, Kawhi, or Klay. But we might have acquired a player in Beal whom the Pelicans might want more than Ingram in a trade for AD.

      We could actually trade Ball and Ingram for Kemba and still have cap space to sign KD, Kawhi, or Klay. But it would cost us both Ball and Ingram.

    Never gets old, trailing by 21 at half. No fire, no desire. Zo is lost again, Kuz and Hart can’t shoot. Just zero consistency except for Mitchell who we could have had, but we go with the gang that can’t shoot straight. Hope we get it together in 2nd half. We can’t shoot from 2 or 3 or Free. I’ll catch the 2nd tomorrow.

      DJ, I know you don’t mean it but sometimes it comes across as if you’re almost happy the Lakers lose because it somehow supports your opinion that our kids aren’t good enough and we should have drafted Jokic or Mitchell or Tatum. Frankly, I think we’ve done a d**n good job drafting players and it’s not like the Lakers folded tonight.

      The Jazz are not the Grizzlies or Pistons and Gobert dominated McGee and blocked or affected every shot we took at the rim. That’s a tough experienced playoff team on the rise that got every lucky call and bounce tonight and still struggled to put us away even though they were hot and we were cold. Did you forget we were missing LeBron and Rondo? We’re the better team when not shorthanded.

      Also, If you watched the game, Zo actually had a pretty good game, especially considering all the cheap fouls called on him. Every Laker shot poorly tonight. I thought Luke made an excellent adjustment to go small and Lonzo was terrific in leading us back. Tonight was one of those matchups where we sorely missed not having a small ball center .

      Let’s see how we play Sunday and Tuesday without LeBron before we jump to any conclusions. Still 39 games to go. I didn’t see a lot of quit in the team. They battled tough in the first half despite being unable to shoot and the Jazz hitting everything. They got schooled but adjusted and hung tough. Some nights the calls and the balls don’t bounce your way. That was tonight. Just one game.

        LT, what is our goal this year? Do we hope for PO’s or above .500 or improve the kids (does seem like the same ol for the past 5 years) or are we just playing all of the above until summer moves? We just have zero consistency, especially shooting. We were 35%-18%-67%. That type of line comes up too often for what we think is at least a good team. Kuz is probably our best. Hart has stepped backwards on shooting, Zo is about the worst in the NBA, KCP is good about every 10th game. We seem defenseless against many teams 3’s and we just keep shooting them and perhaps we shouldn’t and use mid-range more. Not having LeBron shouldn’t keep the team from winning the mediocre teams. I would think we’d beat Cavs and Bulls, but I’m not positive.

          I guess my complaint about the negativity in your post, DJ, is it’s not fair in my opinion to use a road loss by a LeBron-less Lakers team to a tough playoff caliber team that’s been together for years, boasts the reigning DPOY and runner up for ROY, and has been rising fast after a slow start. Simply stated, the Jazz were a much tougher opponent for the shorthanded Lakers than the hapless Pistons and Mavs. You should know that.

          As for the game itself, we lost the battles of the boards and threes, which is why we fell behind by 20. To their credit, the LeBron-less Lakers never quit. Lonzo led a spirited comeback in the second half to cut the lead to 10 points before having to leave with his fifth foul. His plus/minus of -1 was 15 points better than any other Lakers starter. Yet, he was once again the target for your blame. Not Kuzma, Ingram, and Hart. Not fair.

          I don’t mean to attack you personally but we all have to maintain some perspective. I was probably would have been screaming at the same things as you had I not had to watch the game with my wife, who gets pissed when I go berserk but the truth is if there was a game we were going to lose of the three we just played and the two left to play before LeBron hopefully returns, it was the Utah game. They’re a legitimate playoff team and poor matchup for our paint dominant offense because of Gobert’s ability to protect the rim.

          Donavon Mitchell’s been on a hot streak and continued it last night. Savvy Joe Ingles killed us in the paint. Quinn Snyder’s a smart coach who had his players intentionally foul every time the Lakers tried to run with the result that we only scored 7 points in transition. The league needs to change the rules so teams at least get a free throw and the ball out of bounds on these intentional fast break stopping fouls, as is being tested right now in the G-League. Anyway, expect other teams to do the same to the Lakers in the future.

          One thing that jumped out in this game was the Lakers’ need for a small ball center. When Luke made the adjustment to go small with Kuz at the five was when Lonzo led the Lakers back to close the lead to 10 points before picking up his fifth foul. We are so dependent upon points in the paint that there will be times like last night when we’ll need go small to pull an opposing shot blocker out of the paint.

          In the end, I didn’t see this game as anything but what we should have expected based on the matchup. I did, however, expect Kuzma to come out and have a great game but thought Ingram was likely to struggle because of Gobert preventing the easy layups he feasted on against the Mavs and Pistons. This loss just exposed our need for either a stretch five or stretch four who can play small ball center. Luke made the right adjustment to go small against the Jazz but just a quarter too late. Finding a power forward who could stretch the floor and be our small ball center might be a trade priority for the Lakers.

          There were a lot of things good and bad that came out of last night’s loss, DJ. That’s why I expected more from you than just using a not unexpected loss as another opportunity to pile on to Lonzo and the Lakers young core. Now is the time when Lakers’ fans should be cheering and rooting the kids on. They were thrown into the fire without warning and have adjusted pretty d**n well far as I am concerned. That’s something all Lakers fans should be happy and thrilled about. Now’s the time for some perspective and optimism, not to get lost in the results of a single game that was a long shot to win.

          Now the next two games, that’s a different story. Even without LeBron, we’re the better team than the Cavs and Bulls. Unlike the Jazz on the road, the Cavs and Bulls at home are teams we need to and should win. Let’s all be rooting for that to happen. Those two games will tell us a lot about the sustainability of our young core to continue to play with the heart, passion, and success they showed against the Mavs and Pistons.

            Yeah, I understand ya LT, but what is different from this current group of 4 than the last group that most of us were saying and thinking the same (these kids will be great)? I had same hopes for Clarkson, DLO, Nance and Randle. Where they be? Just tired of the same ol same ol, losing when I had hoped we’d be winning, even without LBJ. At least against middle of the road teams. And I don’t take anything personally from you. You are my friend, whether I like it or not, ha, ha!

            • LakerTom (Publisher) 4:25 PM on January 12, 2019 Permalink

              That’s a fair question, DJ. Are Lonzo, Ingram, Kuzma, and Hart better than Russell, Randle, Nance, and Clarkson? I think the answer is that the current foursome is by far superior to the former quartet although the argument is not as strong when you compare any two individuals.

              Lonzo Ball vs. D’Angelo Russell would probably be the most difficult comparison. Ball is the far superior playmaker and defender whereas Russell is the much better scorer and shooter. Lonzo just turned 21 and entering just his second season whereas D’Angelo is almost 23 and in his fourth season, which is traditionally when most players break out. Right now, I would have to give the edge to Russell but that could change if Lonzo can improve his shooting and scoring.

              Brandon Ingram vs. Julius Randle is another interesting matchup where you could argue that Randle might have a slight advantage right now but Ingram, who is three years younger, will most certainly pass Randle up. Kuzma over Nance and Hart over Clarkson are obviously in favor of the current young players. Bottom line, I think the Lakers’ front office has made the right decisions on your talent so far. The only mistake in my mind was we did not have to give up Randle but other than that, we’ve kept the right players and I think we’re seeing them really start to break out, some earlier, some later than expected.

            It ain’t like Utah’s some worldbeater. They’re in the same class as the rest of the teams hovering around .500. This Lakers team without Lebron is a rung below. It’s just the heartless play, boneheaded mistakes, and uneven execution that has most fans frustrated. And that haunts this team even when 23’s in the lineup.

            • mclyne32 (Director) 9:50 AM on January 13, 2019 Permalink

              The uneven execution comes down to Luke. Either he has a coherent plan and his guys Have chosen not to follow it out or he doesn’t. Either way, it’s a real problem.

          I really don’t know who thought that starting 5 was a good idea but that sucked. I know you couldn’t have Josh on Gibson. So start Beez. Lonzo was in no shot mode again, leaving Hart and Bi to basically go 2 on 5. If Kuz can’t go tomorrow they better start Beez. And tell me why KCP only gets 7 shots when you are having scoring issues. He had been on a rolll offensively. Getting him the ball should have been a priority.

McGee out hurts us alot! Can’t be losing to these scrub teams. And DLO says, “how you like me now Lukieboy?” Lol! Gotta get LBJ help. I would trade anyone and most everyone in a good deal. If it’s Ball, Hart, Ingy for Davis, yep, let’s do that. Keep Kuz or Ingy. In my thinking Zo and Hart aren’t gonna cut it in the next couple years. Bet LBJ is thinking, geeze, Cleveland all over again, but that won’t do it in the West.

      We missed a bunch of free throws again, missed wide open threes all game and just looked tired and out of sync, especially without JaVale McGee out there. Luke went to small ball which has been disastrous for the Lakers this season. I look forward to a full compliment of players and hopefully staying healthy. This b!tching, moaning and groaning and utter impatience by certain fans (yes, especially you DJ .. and it is getting really old and sickening) needs to stop. It’s a make or miss league and the Lakers missed their shots because they were exhausted, but still made it close.

      The guy to trade for AD isn’t Lonzo because he is our best perimeter defender and is meshing very well with LeBron more and more. The player to trade for AD is your beloved “Ingy.” The problem is that it ain’t gonna happen because the Celtics have a boatload more to offer and the Pellies are going to look out for their own a$ses.

      Regardless, why don’t you please come up with something more than b!tching, whining, moaning and groaning, aka the McWhyne and TheRealHTJ Club. That’s the pathetic side of Lakers Nation and I don’t get why anyone would want to be a part of that.

      Brown has been a major disappointment and lost his starting job to Smart. And Tatum has been a minor disappointment and he hasn’t been as good as Kuz. As for the draft picks Boston can’t trade for AD until after Kyrie signs. It’s the Rose rule and I don’t really understand it. That could be July. The Pels would have to like the guys Boston drafted. So it’s not any kind of done deal.

        Jayson Tatum is still viewed with a much higher ceiling than Kuz or 90% of the young players out there. Rozier is starting to play well and Brown will come around, too. Regardless, the Celtics can put together a much better package and the Pellies would also getting AD out of the West, so I wouldn’t get my hopes up on the Lakers beating the Celtics in this one. AD saying that he would only re-sign with the Lakers would be the only bullet in our chamber that I can foresee.

      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.

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

      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!!!!!!!

      Agreed -- our defense is horrible and why we are losing.
