Bazemore and Bradley should be getting DNPs once Ariza and Nunn come back.

Avery I think is fine.

I would have to think Baze is in the Danger Zone, however.

AD needed to get on that plan like 10 years ago.

AD's built like a strong black woman.


That’s an insult to most black women. Most of them have more fights in them than AD.


Yep. Don't even understand the comment.

Avery is not fine. He needs to be cut

There is a reason warriors cut him

A lot of Laker fans had this Bucks game circled in as the toughest on this road trip.. we are getting LeBron back on Friday, it should be trending towards up after this game.

He's one of very few on our team that can actually defend, and you want to cut him?

If LeBron returns no way we end up under 500. We need to get a nice winning streak going. Have to win the East games.

As a strong Black woman I’m guessing he meant it would be impressive if I had ADs physique, but it’s not impressive for an athlete of ADs caliber. Lol. Interesting phrasing to say the least

Last two games have been all Westbrook and THT. No one else has stepped up at all. In fact, everyone else has stepped down.

I'd rather keep Avery for depth and also for his POA defense. He's a decent 3-point shooter too.

To me this was a scheduled lost. It was actually encouraging that we were in this all game. We even won the 3rd quarter. So, I guess it takes us being down big to come out with fight.

You all are correct. I didn't expect a win until late... I feel encouraged but upset that I feel the calls were blatantly against the Lakers tonight..

Bron back is a nice thing to have if it happens... Bet Westbrook is looking forward to it

If Lebron never got hurt I guarantee we win about 80% or better of all the games we lost.

The pessimists in LG wanna say getting a top 5 player back in the lineup wouldn’t help tho

Lakers fall 109-102

Frustrating to lose, but not disappointed. After the team gave up a very early 10 point lead, they were outscored by 20 the next quarter and a half. Going into halftime the team was on its heels.

But something happened in the third. The D stepped up. AD got a bit out of his shell. And THT was doing his thing. Lakers actually took the lead for a bit.

Unfortunately, a healthy, energized at home, Bucks team just took it to the team. Giannis had a huge game as well.

There are positives to take from this. The team stayed in it, did not get blown off the floor. Also, THT is really looking good. He ended up guarding Giannis at times (who had his way with THT when it happened), but the dude really is trying, and is also putting the ball in the hoop.

Folks, we may be seeing something special with THT, and I think the kid is just scratching the surface.

P.S. 3 shooting failed the team again. After starting solid from 3 tonight, team ended up shooting under 30%. It is really frustrating that the 3 ball is not being more friendly on a consistent basis.

I listened to the game on my Sirius app while walking, and I have some observations.

1) Giannis is SO much better than AD that it's not even funny. Looking back a couple years, I actually thought AD was better.

2) This team is bad. There is just no way around it. There is not a single thing we are good at. We are dead last in giving up points in the paint. We are horrible at defending the 3. We are near the bottom of the league in rebounding, and give up a ton of offensive rebounds. We don't play defense and don't really have an offense. Lastly, our coaching sucks.

3) LeBron coming back will help, but I'm starting to accept the fact that even though LeBron has been an iron man, he is sustaining more and more injuries since he's been here. I have no doubts about his game, but don't think he can carry this team and I'm not sure he can stay healthy.

Tonight we win if:

Middleton did not play; or

if LBJ played.

THT too…

Everyone else sucks!!!


Avery Bradley needs to be cut and so does bazemore

Monk needs more mins


Totally agree…though I think Bradley brings a lot more to the team than Bazemore..

Giannis is slowly starting to develop a 3pt shot if that happens, Giannis will end up being better then AD in every way.

Or maybe Vogel decided to start double Giannis

As a black man that appreciates a strong black woman, that's generous to give the benefit of the doubt. However, it's usually not a good idea for people to make posts like that.
