They honestly haven't looked that good in most their games this bubble.


Which could be a cause for a concern.. or not because the team is built is for the playoffs they have loads of experience and there strictly a veteran team.

No they haven’t. I suspect stamina is an issue but psychologically I think they’d benefit from a beatdown game where they just stomp an opponent

Definitely 2019, but I don’t think there gonna play like this, if they do it wouldn’t only be the Blazers that would upset them but the Pelicans as well.

No urgency.....I don't like the team doing interviews without N95 masks or it's equivalent.

Because it hasn't happened. He looks old and tired. This is a 35 year old Lebron. This is the new normal.

It's starting to look like LeBron just isn't that effective in a halfcourt game.

When the pace speeds up, he's still arguably the best. But when we're forced to play halfcourt ball, LeBron just pounds the ball and jacks up 3s.

is this some record.

Our shooters mus be one of the worst. so many young kids shooting way better than kcp, green kuz etc etc.
why do we even have cook and dudley?

why did we re-sign mcgee? other than a couple of dunks and a block here and there. he is useless.

atleast run few plays for jr smith. he can't be worst than kcp and green. these guys can't even hit wide open shots. useless...

the only reason we are No 1 seed is because we tried so hard for it. LBJ and AD played lot of minutes even against lottery teams to get to No 1.

His quickness against set defenses has really declined...doesn’t help that our shooters don’t punish teams for helping on Lebron drives

I feel like he was slower than his peak even during the first Miami finals series against Dallas.

It's preseason guys and gals Once they clinched their seeding they are going to try things and see how they work. Most of the shooters are short, meaning legs. They got a little more time to get their legs under them but not a lot. Not worried about LBJ and AD, but shooting is. Hopefully they figure it out before the playoffs start.

I have some concerns, but the media reaction is funny.

Imo it’s pretty clear the Lakers aren’t too interested in these seeding games. They only took the clippers one seriously. The win over the Jazz was all AD.

The Lakers we see for these 8 games isn’t what we will see in the playoffs. The only concern is guys just finding their rhythm and shots, but they clearly are going through the motions of extended preseason.

Looks like it tbh. The media is going to run with the Lakers looking like a half ass clunky team until the playoffs start.

One of my main concerns is the sustainability of Waiters and JR.

One thing we could count on was AB’s sustainability and even Rondo with all his shortcomings.

Waiters and JR just don’t seem like consistent, sustain type players. Just tough to be down AB, he is another reliable guard with few mistakes in his game.

Waiters will be a roller coaster and JR not sure he can really provide much at this stage of his career.

That’s 2 roster spots...makes it more challenging. I’m sure Waiters will help, but he will also hurt.

The offense has been horrific.

Waiters looks like he can contribute. JR not looking like he has anything left.
