Hopefully Pelinka can get us a piece that can help us bridge this time frame so we do not drop out of playoff contention.

Apparently we had the best depth in the entire NBA and our bench can make it to playoffs

Clippers games were competitive without KL and PG.

Mr genius Rob let Dwight go , dude wanted a minimum contract. DS were Trez were all empty stats their entire lives. but LG made them superstars..It was so funny people wanted to get All star level players to trade DS/TREZ/THT/KCP/KUZ. they are role players with very limited skill set.

Keep in mind that the Sixers game is right after the
Trade deadline, so we could be without more players if we make some trades.

128-111 Pelicans win

Was not really that close. After a competitive first quarter it slowly went down hill. At one point in the third, Pels had a 30 point womping on the team.

Lakers were actually 18-37 from 3 which was one of their better games all year and should be, usually, more than enough. But still were dominated. Mainly due to no defense (e.g. no AD, Gasol, and now no Jones = no real interior presence), and no real playmaking in the paint (outscored in the paint 62-32. Probably says it all there).

At this point Rob will likely start feeling some weight on his shoulders. The team is progressively playing worse since LBJ's injury and currently look like a tasty snack to alot of NBA opponents.

THT with some nice dimes at the end. He looks to pass more than DS. THTs passing ceiling is way higher than DS and AC, he’s just young. Kuz had one dinner with Kobe and thought he could be him if he tried harder. Not gonna EVER happen.

That's impressive.
Kuz had a decent impact though, which shows in that he's the only plus on the team.


That’s not going to win you crap...


Add to that their freaking defense. 40 pts in the paint in a half? Harrell at C will cause the Lakers a ring or at worst playoffs spot.


didn't you say that he is an elite defender

Harrell has tunnel vision near the rim; he never passes out of a double team to an open shooter.

I didnt said that. Tag me where I said that. I constantly said here that he is not a good defender at C spot not unless he will play togehter with AD, which will help him cover his paint defense weakness.

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.

THT is barely 20. The more minutes and experience, he will be fine. At least he’s not afraid. I find KCP and even Schroder reluctant to shoot. Can’t have that.

Criticism of the alleged "depth" is definitely fair. Even before the injuries started walloping the team, its not like the depth was avoiding really close games vs questionable opponents.

With that said, it's hard for me to ignore the Lakers potential versatility with the team if 1) completely healthy and 2) if they added an athletic big type/shot blocker / lob threat.
