    Luke should take a page from Phil Jackson. The one when PJax asked Jerry West to leave the locker room so he can address the team. Your Organization, Jerry. My players. You do your part, let me do mine. Pizzed West no end, gave Phil 5 more rings.

    One thing we all know: Magic can’t coach. He can judge Luke on results but never on methodology. Leave the guy alone or fire him.

    Lakers beat Boston, players high and happy.
    Magic comes, gives pep talk.
    Lakers lose to Philly, lose to Atlanta, lose their mojo.
    I say fire Magic.

    76ers have 3 1/2 allstars and on top of their game. They’re bigger, as tall, played longer together and at home. They’re meaner and tougher than Boston. Hart’s down, Ball’s out for his yearly health affliction, LBJ’s not 100%, 2 new guys and Chandler’s just old.

    Yeah, its all Luke’s fault. smh.

      3 1/2? When did they allow Amputees to play? :)

      We are supposed to be in the middle of the West standings.
      Yes, we have lost a lot due to injuries, but it’s games like this, when we have a full squad, minus Lonzo, that point to something else going on.
      When I see players, who are perfectly capable of playing good D, not giving maximum effort, it tells me that they aren’t selling out for their coach.
      Starting a dude who just got here over the cat who just made a last second winner during your previous, and who is your best organizer on both ends is just strange.
      I’m still not seeing the sun if these individual parts creating something greater.
      If Kuz hasn’t been on fire during the first q, we would have been blown out throughout.
      Excuses only last for so long until their significance wilts under the heat of repetition and time.

      Supposedly Bullock’s length was gonna improve our defense but it didn’t and his offense was also non-existent. Yeah…he just got here but so did Tobias & all those other dudes on Philly and they seemed fine. They’re just a coupla levels over us right now and that’s with Butler & Simmons not doing a whole lot in this game. We coulda doubled Embiid but that just leaves JJ or Tobias open…

      That team is long and can get after it on both ends..gonna be a problem in the post-season.

          I didn’t say Pick and Roll. Lol.

          Spacing is the key to those offenses.

    I can’t believe how much news there is on the AD proposals. Lakers have always played it close to the vest on all their trades so either the Pels leak like a sieve or the media is just making these all up.

    We’ll find out by Friday.

    p ang 7:35 AM on January 29, 2019 Permalink  

    Seems Celtics package is about to be torpedoed.

    If AD flat out say he will only re-sign with the Lakers, Ainge will not include Tatum in any trade package. That leaves them with Rozier, Brown, Smart, broken down Haywood, old Horford and 4 first round picks that aint that high with all the protection built-in. They can’t even entice with Kyrie because he too is going to be a free agent. Trade him to NO and watch him sign with Lakers by the end of the season. Rewind, LBJ.

    Dang. AD, LBJ, and a K guy (Kyrie, Klay, KD, Kawhi). Rondo at Point, KCP at 2, McGee as 6th man and Lance at guitar.

    Oh, LA can’t trade KCP. They need his salary to come off the books so they have money for the 3rd superstar.

    Oh oh, If they want a better shot at Klay, Magic better keep Luke.

     
    • LakerTom (Publisher) 11:48 AM on January 29, 2019 Permalink | Log in to Reply

      The Celtics’ are stuck between a rock and a hard place. They can’t trade for AD right now because they signed Kyrie to a Rose Rule exception. That means the first time they can try to trade for AD would be this summer, when AD only has a year left on his contract. If he is still saying he will only re-sign with the Lakers at that point, then there’s no way Danny Ainge is going to risk offering Tatum.

      That’s also why the Pelicans won’t have any more leverage if they wait until this summer. Right now is when the Pelicans have the most leverage to trade AD because a team would have him for one and a half seasons. In fact, I would bet there may be more teams interested in making a bid for AD right now than next summer. For some teams, that could mean two shots at winning an NBA championship and two seasons to try and convince AD to stay and not sign with the Lakers. Next summer, his value goes down.

      Another factor is the Pelicans owner likes and is very appreciative of what AD has done for the Pelican and is not likely to refuse to trade him to the Lakers out of spite like probably happened in both Indiana and San Antonio. The Lakers still have to give the Pels a deal they can’t refuse, including at least three of the team’s four young stars plus a plethora of picks including some unprotected. Lakers want to make deal right now.

    p ang 6:59 PM on January 28, 2019 Permalink  

    If the Pels are going to lose AD having a team of Lonzo, Jrue, Kuz, BI and Zubac would be a great rebuilding start.

    Lakers having a vet team of Rondo, KCP, somebody, LBJ and AD is dangerous enough to compete in the West.

     
    • mclyne32 (Director) 7:20 PM on January 28, 2019 Permalink | Log in to Reply

      KCP needs to be included for the money to be close.

      • LakerTom (Publisher) 7:41 PM on January 28, 2019 Permalink | Log in to Reply

        Or Lance and Beasley plus taking back some small contracts so the Pelicans don’t have to cut anybody, leaving that to us. Avoids having to ask KCP to fall on his sword for Klutch.

          and more than enough roster spots for banana boat buddy Melo.

          • LakerTom (Publisher) 7:59 PM on January 28, 2019 Permalink | Log in to Reply

            One good thing is the Lakers do have a 15 deep roster so even if they were to trade Lonzo, Ingram, Kuzma, Zubac, and KCP for AD, they would still have 10 players on the roster. Room for a couple of Pelican rejects and Melo.

      I’d have signed him to a fair deal with no sample size. I know enough about his style of play to know this injury won’t change much other than a year setback being out and another before he’s back to where he was. He’s a savvy below the rim guy who doesn’t depend on explosion.
