LeBron our closer???


Depends on who you are asking?

I say of course. You give him the ball and let him do what made him who he is today.

BUT, if it was up to the advanced staters here on LG.net, he should sit out the last 4 minutes. People can't choose when to throw around analytics.

Yup. So convenient for internet experts chime in on stats. Ppl are even direct quoting twitter experts on what lineup should have been played in certain situations. I cringed all the time.

LeBron's our closer, he had a bad game. He can take it to the rim, shoot 3's, mid ranges, he has all the shots. Just don't foul him. He's lousy at FT's. He'll probably buy Chandler lunch for a year.

I don't know what it is about his body language but he doesn't seem happy. If I could make up a closing 5. James is good at defense when he has to be in spurts.

Hart
Rondo
Chandler
LeBron
Kuzma

Where do you get that sense? Did you see the post game interview were he was happy like a joy joy telling Chandler he’s my dawg in the locker-room? Dude is definitely excited to be here, he’s also excited that we are piling up wins while most of our players still aren’t locked in mentally... good time to be a Lakers fan.

Not just this game his overall demeanor. He just doesn't seem happy.

Maybe he is frustrated with the social negative vibes that’s been going on especially with the recent Thousand Oaks shootings, don’t think he is unhappy about anything but what I just posted, he is having a lot of fun out there IMO.

Hope you're right. I may be the only one sensing bad body language. He just vibes me that way.

I sense this too but it's not being happy per se. It's about his passion and intensity for the game is lacking right now. But in fairness, it could be very well a by product of being on a new team, early in the season, his 15th year in the league and regular season is boring for him?

Or....we just got used to Kobe 100% intensity all the time.

We won a game with a last second block we should have won with ease. THIS TEAM HAS TO LEARN TO CLOSE. Coming close to 20 games 7-6. Looking better.
