I would love Beal if we had the package for him

But in reality, it’s not going to happen...so we are stuck with what we have...

I do feel we need a player or two to replace the folks not contributing.

By the way, this is NOT on Lebron.

KCP has to hit shots.
Matthews has to contribute more
Trez got to make easy shots
Marc got to get something out of you
Schroder got to hit layups
Etc....


My ears are open to a Trez/ DS/THT deal for Beal.


I don’t think that gets you Beal.

We had a winning combo with McGee/Dwight. Why, or why did we have to change something that wasn't really broke? Rob Pelinka...damn you.
Plus, you need someone to replace Trez. This is when I wish stupid Dwight was still on the team.


Then fine the right package and get us the guy!

Do it!

Meanwhile old man Gasol playing like he’s 90 years old...He gots to go before he breaks a hip.

You know...teams lose right? To my knowledge there’s never been a team that had a perfect season. But lack of effort is really upsetting. I don’t even know what to say about that fourth quarter.


Remember last seasons 4 game losing streak, it’s giving Deja vu


Ah well onto the next


Except they were...

24-3

when that happened.

What picks can we trade that are our own? I feel like Kuz/THT/Schroder + picks gets it done with Harrell to a 3rd team for another first that goes to Washington. Have McKinnie as our primary wing defender off the bench

Gasol absolutely REFUSES to shoot the ball...

If Trezz isn't giving you offense, and offensive boards, he gives you nothing...especially since he has a tendency to get worked by bigger bodies...

Outside of a game, or two, Wes has given the Lakers nothing off the bench, so far..

Since a promising start, Schroder has been average, to bad, most nights...

Vogel is going to have to tighten up his rotations, so guys have a chance to play themselves into a rhythm, and build chemistry. Vogel is playing so many different lineups, there's no continuity. That's a problem, as can be seen. Imo, Caruso, and THT, need to get more playing time. Wes is the odd man out. If Vogel is bound and determined to play Wes anyways, then he needs to do a better job of getting him involved in the offense. He can do more than spot up shoot 3's.

He's beginning to remind me of the mad chemist, Del Harris, who loved doing that crap.

To his credit, he might...and this is just a theory I have...might have a 1 inch vertical.

They were just tired. When Caruso first entered the game in the 1st quarter there was a rebound that bounce twice in front of him;. My inner self said: Houston, we got a problem.

This was a game that Vogel should have played THT 30+ mins. no matter what.

Thank you Lakerican, I was thinking that as well since...why not LBJ after playing 39 mins get some rest? Let THT show out. If we had an L with that:

1) I think most here woulda chalked it up to not having AD AND LBJ play (or play much)

2) You give THT run that raises his trade value

That's what I wouldn't want to happen. If that were the case, then we'd be closing our eyes, hoping the truth wasn't there.

With this pathetic L as it was, our eyes are fully open. Hopefully Rob's are as well.

people jumped all over me when I said last year's team is a better fit. DS and Trez are individual players. They don't make anyone better.

Vogel and Rob are over rated. Last year's offense was all because of Bron and Rondo's IQ. Rob got way too much credit for roster changes.

I still have nightmares of Fred Roberts entering the game.

All I gotta say is this team better start playing with some piss and vinegar energy over the next couple of weeks to make up for this embarrassing loss.

Just a thought:

As has been posed on this forum recently.

Maybe it is time to have DS just come off the bench with the bench crew. Have AC start with KCP.

I just checked the stats and, as crazy as it is to say, Gasol had the highest + / - out of all of the starters at a whopping -6.
