Who's playing? Would really love to get a glimpse of a real lineup before the season starts.

Is Westbrook playing?

I guess my main wonder is why is he sitting out again?? Steph is playing, Paul is playing, why isn't he?

It would be nice to see how this work in progress roster is going to look. The stars will have to play together at some point. Would not be surprised to see Davis get a game or two off and let James and WB play a quarter.

IMO the pre-season is being disregarded by the stars. It’s time for all the role players to show the coaches what they can add to the puzzle.

First 10 games will be interesting. Only three competitive teams in GS, PHO, and POR. The rest are young teams going to be motivated to make a statement against the “old guys”.

Lakers should start strong as long as they focus on making their own statement. Any given night they don’t take it seriously or bring energy could be a loss. Can’t squander the opportunity for wins early or against bad teams.

As we learned last year, sh** happens over a long season and a couple wins or losses can make a difference in the playoff standings.

I think if AD is willing to play a few quarters, as well as Steph, CP3 and others. I think Westbrook could. Vogel will still have his quarters to "figure things out". Westbrook playing a half wouldn't prevent him from doing that.

Might as well start what is close to the opening game starters.
There is no such thing as just turning it on.
They have to learn to play together in a real game.

So even for a quarter find out what the team will be like and
make adjustments to fix.

Have the other 3 quarters to judge the subs.
But won't get much surprises if they don't know by now.

it also helps chemistry.

We should be trying to find the starting lineup we'll have WITH our starters actually playing. It won't really help if we never play the starters in group and then go "Okay this person played well in pre-season he'll start." and then have his first in game minutes with the starting unit being Game 1 of the season.

Will be pure stupidity if Westbrook doesn’t play tonight, there is only 4 games remaining he needs to build cohesiveness with the team.

We also have 6 pre-season games this year while a lot of other teams only have 4 (Like Phoenix) so it's not that surprising.. My guess is we start seeing everyone get at least some minutes over the next 3 then the majority of all the vets sit the 6th and final Pre-season game. Makes sense to me if that's how things go down but I do agree they need to get at least a little bit of time out there together.

Luckily we have a ridiculously easy schedule to start the season that will also help our inevitable growing pains out of the gate.

Agree we need to get our main guys some real PT together even if it's 'just' preseason. I get the coaching staff wants to see how the rest of the guys do in the system, then do that while getting our 3 stars some gelling time.

I hope we enter the season with a few consecutive pre-season wins under our belt too for team/fans morale

Lebron and Russ reporting for duty 🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥💪🏀💪🏀💪🏀


I’m pretty sure AD wants to play but Frank and Fiz got something planned with sitting him out? 🤔🤔🤔🤔🤔

Can’t wait to see all three of them on the court together

Damn...LBJ and Russ playing tonight.

I'm gonna have to dust off one of my VHS tapes and program my VCR for this one cause it's the Doyers vs the Jigantes in the playoffs.....I ain't missing a sec on that.

M&M is clearly the best young guy on this team. He may be a 20ppg guy without Bron and Russ.
