    “One generation rejects God. The next generation learns to live without him. One generation rejects the values of God. The next generation takes it as normal. Of the 22 civilizations that have appeared in history, 19 of them collapsed, when they reached the moral state the United States is in right now.”

      There is a WAY, and A TRUTH out of this mess our country is in. It’s just a matter of bending the knee.
      As a nation, we have a choice.

        i guess bending the knee means…to submit ? but what does it mean in this context ? submit to what ? some conception of God ?

      Matt, I believe much of the good and bad in the world today comes from religion and its advocates.

      Do you recognize that part of the problem is the intolerance and racism by the Christian right in America?

        None of the REAL Christians I associate with are racists. They are quite the opposite.

          I respect the good Christians that are truly good people. The problem is they are a very small group such as my mother who is passionately liberal because she knows that is the correct side to be on as a Christian.
          It’s those such as yourself on the right that disappoint me and drove me away from my Christian roots as the hypocrisy was too much. As if being a Christian is an indication of your morals when you blindly support a political party that tells you it supports Christian values yet it’s actions say otherwise. It’s intellectually lazy to call yourself a Christian and a Republican.

          NBA, you know ABSOLUTELY NOTHING about my “Religion.” You don’t know me, nor my Faith, nor how I carry it out in the world. You only know what the skewed and distorted media tells you to believe. You just believe in labels.
          I never have called myself a Republican and never will.
          Go take your false notions and direct them to someone who cares about your intolerance.
          It’s a sad day when the so called “TOLERANT” liberals are so hypocritical that they don’t tolerate the beliefs that once made this country great. I hope you have a great day and someday learn the definition of tolerance.

            You know what I saw on the weekend, and it shocked the hell out of me.

            We were at the Mall and this 12 yr old girl was yelling at her Mother and Father about something.

            I wouldn’t dream of yelling at my parents, but these snowflakes have to have it their way. This is the next generation Matt, and it scares me. Smh.

            Whoa Matt I’ve never said you are not a good person doing good deeds to show the world the love of Christ as I truly believe you are a good person doing the work. So I apologise for how I structured my post. But yes you have indicated you are a Republican and have attacked the left many times over the years in here.
            You proved you align with the right just now by regurgitating their silly talking points and insults that portray anyone who disagree with their positions as brainwashed by the “skewed media” and that we are intolerant of their intollerence. Christians such as yourself and my mother are not to blame nor are agnostic such as myself.
            If you and I sat for hours and discussed these problems you’d know we are much more alike and want the same for our kids regardless of how we raise them philosophically.
            I guess my ignorance is that I can’t articulate or understand why anyone that is a good hearted “REAL Christian” could possibly align themselves with any right wing rhetoric let alone not denounce it daily as my mother does. Because of her actions I still respect Christians, their believes, and will defend them as I do. Lashing out as you have on this thread at me and kenny isn’t convincing me that you are not part of the Christian right regardless of what “label” you choose. You wont denounce Republican policies because they have bamboozled you into their side with a silly “pro-life” platform that is anything but…

              Amit of course he’s the ring leader now and it’s good he’s exposing the Republican party but he will be gone sooner then later and I fear many won’t recognize how deplorable that party is when a more polished respectable man such as pence steps in. Pence, Ryan, and Cruz types and their policies are the same if not worst and at least trumps racism isn’t in the closet.

              as far as corruption goes?
              this last election was full of Dems doing bad things. they did bad things to Bernie Sanders(not that i like him), which was the subject of the leaked emails that it is said that the Russians hacked and leaked. everyone seemed to focus on the scary Russians instead of the dirty tricks laid out in the emails themselves, which were never repudiated.

              believe what you like. if you think the party of the KKK(yes, that’s an institution hatched by Dems) is clean now because they offer freebies to poor people(to keep them poor and dependent ) while doing as much as anyone to allow manufacturing to leave this country, then fine.

              it’s not hard to dig up dirt on either party, although right now, Mr. Soros is in charge of PR, so Occupy is making memes faster than people can post them all. who knows who that guy really is? that means that if you get news from facebook and instagram and twitter, then it looks like only the Republicans are evil.

              the fact is, the fringe Republicans ARE evil, as are the fringe Democrats. the rank and file is mixed, but i’d say that the majority of the rank and file in both parties are decent and doing the best they can. unfortunately, the fringe is running the show.

              Democrats gave away US sovereignty several times, in trade deals and under Clinton, the whole military was put under UN authority. all quite illegal according to the constitution, but that seems unimportant to most.

              Al Gore is Occidental Oil, but we’ll ignore that. Dems are Big Business as much as Republicans, but we’ll ignore that too. we like free things and don’t care about our independence anymore. it’s much easier to let others think for us, right?

              whatever. i come here for basketball. i don’t have any issues with anyone’s point of view. these two parties haven’t been the only two parties. there have been a number of pairs. perhaps the Republicans will be replaced with an independent party or perhaps they’ll resurrect the Whigs. it won’t have significant effect, except for possibly on public opinion.

              i think the whole Democrat/Republican thing is just nonsense to keep us from thinking about really important decisions that get made with very little debate. CNN, Fox, ABC, Vice, Huffington, etc are merely entertainment. it’s a puppet show and it smells. let’s keep it quiet though. it scares the children and i’m not interested in spending days proving it. anyone who really wants to know can.

              Bill Clinton overstated the effect of the crime bill he signed in 1994 when he said, “because of that bill we had a 25-year low in crime, a 33-year low in the murder rate.” Independent analyses have found that the bill had a modest effect on crime rates.
              Clinton offered his defense of the bill in response to a protester at a campaign event for Hillary Clinton in Philadelphia on April 7. In addition to Clinton’s inflated assessment of the bill’s effect on crime, we found fault with how both sides portrayed the crime bill in Clinton’s back-and-forth with the protester:

              The protester clearly yelled something about the “three-strikes” provision in the 1994 crime bill. Some in the Black Lives Matter movement have blamed that provision for mass incarceration. But that overstates the effect of the bill, as the steady trend toward increased incarceration long pre-dated the 1994 bill.
              Clinton responded by saying “90 percent of the people in prison too long are in state prisons and local jails,” not federal prisons. But that claim — meant to deflect responsibility for mass incarceration — goes too far in the other direction. The bill did include $8.7 billion for prison construction for states that enacted “truth-in-sentencing” laws, which required people convicted of violent crimes to serve at least 85 percent of their sentences.

              The law at issue was the sweeping Violent Crime Control and Law Enforcement Act of 1994, which provided funding for tens of thousands of community police officers and drug courts, banned certain assault weapons, and mandated life sentences for criminals convicted of a violent felony after two or more prior convictions, including drug crimes. The mandated life sentences were known as the “three-strikes” provision.

              The law is blamed by some for rising incarceration rates, though as we will explain later, that trend actually began in the 1970s. Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders — who voted for the 1994 crime bill — has frequently noted on the campaign trail, correctly, that the U.S. has, by far, the largest prison population in the world (though we have noted that his promise to correct that dubious distinction in his first term would be an almost impossibly tall order).
              In a speech at an NAACP convention in Philadelphia in July, Clinton acknowledged that tougher incarceration provisions in the bill were a mistake. “I signed a bill that made the problem worse,” Clinton said. “And I want to admit it.”

              Although Hillary Clinton was not in the Senate at the time and did not vote on the bill, she spoke in favor of it at the time. Asked about the law during a Democratic debate on March 6, Hillary Clinton said that “there were some aspects that worked well” including violence against women provisions, but she allowed that other portions related to increasing incarceration “were a mistake.”

              Another interesting fact. Two weeks after Clinton signed the big crime bill in September 1994, he enacted the Riegle-Neal interstate banking bill, the first in a series of moves deregulating the financial industry. The juxtaposition between the two is kind of shocking, when you think about it: low-level drug users felt the full weight of state power at the same moment that bankers saw the shackles that bound them removed. The newspaper headline announcing the discovery of this amazing historical finding will have to come from my imagination – Back-to-Back 1994 Laws Freed Bankers And Imprisoned Poor, perhaps – but the historical pattern is worth noting nevertheless, since it persiste

    Not to throw dirt on DAR, but the type of game Lonzo played last night, completely taking over while at the same time, keeping his mates involved, was what I was expecting from DAR when he came in.

      I think in the end the Lakers misread D’Angelo much like you posted. He is really a potentially great shooting guard with great playmaking skills. Not a potentially great point guard with great scoring skills. In other words, more Harden than Curry as a type of player.

      Comparing Russell’s point guard skills and vision to Lonzo’s is silly when you’re talking about a potentially transcendent player. Few point guards in the league could survive that comparison. Lonzo Ball will have his struggles but it’s easy to see he is going to be a great player.

      Lakers are dead serious about this conditioning thing. They mention it just about every single time they talk to the press.

        I love it.
        It weeds out the guys who are really dedicated, and the ones who are in it just for the money and fame.

        Makes sense if you’re going to push the pace you need to be in better shape than teams that slow it down. Better conditioning could be factor in finishing games strong in 4th quarter. Like to see us develop that as part of our identity.

        And I would like to see pushing the pace and wearing down the opposition work at both ends of the court. Lots of traps and presses and aggressive defense looking for steals to ignite fast breaks. Defense can not only start fast breaks but also speed up the game.

        Or it could mean they’re just trying to get up to the league standard right now. Alotta those dudes were gassed in the 4th last year despite all playing limited minutes.

    According to Ramona Shelbourne, the LAkers are not trading the #2.

    Guys, the Main Reason to trade for PG now is so next year, when we have his Bird Rights, we can go over the cap to sign him to his new deal. This way, we can have more room to sign other Free Agents.

      Good point, Matt.

        I think we HAVE to get him if we want to pair up two top tier players.
        Rob and Magic know this.
        Plus, it’s much easier to convince another top tier player to come when you already have one.

      Considering that your post is the first place I have read this, I’ll take your expertise as a capologist with a grain of salt, mcwhyne.

        You just don’t know the NBA and how things work.
        Go read up on it for yourself, come back, and then you can join the adults at the big boy table.

          I have read up on it, but you make it sound so simple. You don’t understand how it works. Clearly.

    If you can’t beat ’em, join ’em!
    So pathetic.
    The Dubbs did what they needed to do- hold serve.
    So glad to see Klay get his mojo working.
    The LeBrons will win the next two.

      Don’t think they have enough fire power (Cavs).

        The Dubs simply have too much. They were 73-9 last season WITHOUT Durant. If LeBron, Kyrie and Love, with guys like JR Smith, Korver and Channing Frye to bomb away isn’t enough “fire power,” I don’t know what is. I guess enough simply isn’t enough against this juggernaut. The Warriors play stellar defense. That’s the biggest difference.

      LOL. Dubs up 2-0. Cavs split the 2 games n Cleveland and they will have the Dubs right where they want them.

            Cavs are pretty stuck with this roster unless they wanna flip Love for Melo. Signing everyone with Lebron’s best friend as an agent for 3x what they would’ve been worth on the open market’ll do that to you.

  • mclyne32 (Director) 10:50 PM on May 16, 2017 Permalink  

    We CAN NOT have a back court of Ball and Russell. We would get destroyed.
    I want Fox and PG in here to shore up our D.
    If we do draft Ball, then Icewater Boy needs to be involved in a trade for PG, or one that gets us a shooter who can defend.

    Draft Fox.
    Trade Clarkson, future first rounder and Icewater Boy for PG.
    Sign a shooter who can defend for the 2 spot.
    Try and trade for, or sign a serviceable center. If that doesn’t work, start Zu.
    We need to keep Julius since PG doesn’t want to play the four.

    defender who can shoot

    Sign Westbrook in 2018, dump(stretch) Mozgov’s contract.

        Mr. Tate, I set my expectations low so my elations can be high! I love 46.9%!

        So let’s talk.

        Naturally, I disagree with you and mcwhyne re a Ball/DLo backcourt. In time, it could be the best in the league. I do like Fox as well, but Lonzo Ball’s game is special. However, there will be trades and it would not shock me if D’Angelo Russell was among the traded youngsters, but Pelinka and Magic won’t and shouldn’t settle for anything less than a haul.
