Reception on the Zoom is so bad Vogel looks like Max Headroom.

I honestly feel THT just needs to be given by a team that is willing to live through his mistakes and growth 30+ minutes a night. I do think his growth is stunted playing on a team that *has* to monitor what he is doing. As up/down he is, I personally see lots of potential and would try to trade for him.

For example, rumor is Toronto wants to deal Powell. If I'm their GM, I see in THT a young player I can lure in with the promise of playing time to team up with Vanvleet and Siakam. I'd take KCP off the Lakers hands as well, as he'd be someone I have under contract, is still a 3 and D guy, and wont be worried about me growing THT.

Lakers would probably strongly consider that trade as well. Not a perfect salary matchup, but wouldnt take much to make it work.


I like this take.


Thanks Mamba. I really like THT, I sort of feel he came into the team a little late? When the team was in rebuild mode, he would be perfect for that situation. We could watch him grow with 30+ minute nights and just deal with his mistakes.

The talent is there. More than one NBA player has mentioned if there was a re-draft of the year he was drafted, we know THT is not going in the second round.

Unfortunately he's on a team that must win *now*, little patience for player growth. Selfishly I'd like him to stay, but for him to get to where he needs - dude just needs play time.

Like a really bad car crash but couldn’t help to just watch the entire thing play out.

BI with the effortless 36 and Zion with 27. They knew if they lost to us without Lebron and AD they couldn’t continue their season with any respect for themselves.

This has the to be the worst performance I’ve seen from Dennis in a Lakers jersey. Especially with the all his comments about stepping up
I wonder if this has anything to do with the trade rumors?

Friday couldn’t come any sooner.

Well, what other era would you get flicks they wont make anymore such as Last American Virgin, Fast Times at Richmond High, Private School, and the entire Porky's series?

That stuff would be face palmed if made today

In addition, the lack of team practices due to Covid protocols and testing stunts his growth too.

Ah yes. Phoebe Cates and her red bikini. Mark Harmon and his fluffy chest. The raunchy teen section at my local video store was my favorite to browse.

Man I know it’s going to be tough, but so far this is terrible. It’s hard to even watch.

The team has been a hot mess the last couple of games. There is No cohesiveness and no continuity. G-League-type performance.

Everyone needs to take ownership and show some pride because this has been a fiasco so far. A good place to start is against Philly. GO LAKERS!

Is this team better than they are playing? I thought so, I see guys that can get buckets and yet the offensive droughts continue
