How about a little defense.


He's 34. Not sure how you expect him to play D when he has to carry the offensive load while guys in their early 20s and lots of energy play turnstile defense.

So hate to beat a dead horse but rotations were super trash tonight.

When Kuzma, Lebron , and BI gotta battle legitimate bigs like Len, Deadmon, and Collins all game there gonna get worn out.
Luke treating our swingmen like there Serge Ibaka.

I get it Javale has minute restrictions but this is getting out of hand. If I had to hear Stu and Billy Mac say another Big/Little switch again I’m going to blow my F’n brains out.

Rondo is not the guy to bench for more shooting. If anyone, it should be Ingram. He and Kuzma are redundant when LeBron is in the lineup and he's not as good from 3


I agree with you, but I think it should be Kuzma. Kuzma's game is best suited for a super 6th man.

He's a chucker who gets really hot some times. When he's hot, you ride him. When he's not, like today, he only gets 10-15 minutes a game.

When his shot isn't falling he's providing nothing else. He doesn't rebound, he doesn't pass, and I don't need to mention anything about his defense.

ok, so what is the answer? You say that you understand Javale is limited in minutes....our FO just traded away our other big man for some weird reason...not sure what the answer is?

I know this isn't 2k but despite his stats, can we trade Lebronze? I liked watching the tanking Lakers better than this. Only reason I was even somewhat ok with Bronze coming here was I thought it would equal some wins. Well...not so much. Bron ball is garbage.


I was on 2k today and tried to trade lebron just to see what I could get
ZERO offers for him.
It had to be zo and kuz or kuz and bi
It was pretty funny

I know it won't happen, but I'd love to trade Lebron for some decent young talent, and then get a true Max player this off season.

this one, because we WERE fighting for a playoff spot, and we had Lebron and Rondo healthy.

Best loss of the season if it got Luke fired. All I wanted for Christmas, New Year and my birthday was for Luke to be fired. Is that too much to ask? Pls axe him already. I know we're gonna be good with a new coach. Any coach!!

How about both!

I watch Javale’s pregame and post game workouts all the time on his IG page and he’s in tip top shape. Definitely could easily play 30-35 minutes a game easily. Relying on Kuzma, Lebron and BI to rim protect ain’t it chief!

Yep trading Zubac was bad but I get it that we’re not trying to pay him next season. Mucala is also far from being a bruiser so his absence due to injury tonight wasn’t too crucial.

Celtics look more in rhythm without kyrie. I think he will be gone for sure.

Even Luke knows Lebron has given up on him too.

It's obvious in his tone. Sounds defeated.

I just don't think Ingram is even a threat to help space the floor though which is what you need with Rondo and LeBron starting.

What I don't understand is how any coach who wants to win could even consider benching Rondo with no Lonzo (I'd start him then too). This must be from management (or LeBro lol) for some reason...

Why are people acting like this is Bron ball somehow? He’s doing what he can with what he’s got. I seem to remember Lakers last year ran the same clogged toilet offense except it was Ingram running it instead of Lebron. Keep in mind Lebron took a team to the finals last season that is currently dead last without him. So is it really Lebron ball? Or does Luke suck hard as a coach.
