Frank Vogel said there was too much “casualness” to the Lakers’ approach tonight.


really thats still going on?


Not going to win many games with 22 turnovers. Defense is not even the issue tonight. They were just careless with the ball.

This team sucks!!
Last year’s team was much better and the year before was a real team…the team that won the title.
They had locker room guys…they had the glue guys like Dudley, Green…
Energy guys…Caruso, KCP

These dudes are lazy bums…

Lebron was hot at that Westbrook 3.


They were down big with 1:45 and Lebron is running clock. They needed a quick score. Lebron kept running clock like they were protecting a lead.


I think the 3 need to make quicker move and our players need to move off the ball. We are way too stagnate.


yeah, and it starts with Lebron overdribbling on one spot trying to setup his 10 assist all 4th quarter


Dude what’s your beef with Lebron? He was the least of our problems tonight (and most nights)


No one should have beef with LeBron the player we need to be frustrated about is Anthony Davis, he’s playing lazy in a lot of spurts this season.


Idk if it’s the weight gain but AD seems a step slow this year


he looks disinterested to me


Someone send AD the rant video by Chuck

On second thought, I doubt he cares since nothing is capable of lighting a fire under him

This is a knee jerk reaction by me but

If the whole team was traded right now for draft picks, and we played g leaguers going forward for rest of year, fine

Yea, its an in the moment reaction. Im pissed.

Memphis have held their opponents under 100 points for 6 games in a row... This team plays hard since Morant went down. 6-1 record.

The roster is old, expensive and entitled. It’s kind of like the tail end of a title run, except without the title.

Bron clearly not happy in this post game. Mostly talking about the turnover situation

EDIT - and inconsistent lineups

2nd EDIT - And then he got up and left LOL

Yeah showing up for the Celtics after 4 days off doesn’t get you benefit of the doubt.

This team sucks. Beating the Celtics doesn’t mean (bleep) when you can’t beat a 6-10 type seed in the west without their 2 best players.

Just a clown team. I’m pretty close to pulling the plug on this year and maybe watching more enjoyable basketball around the league and focus on other sports tbh.

Alright I think I'll pass on RussRuss and AD. I need to decompress. We'll try again tomorrow I guess....

I got tickets to a couple of upcoming games and I don’t even feel like going with this clown show.

76ers are 12-12. Are they as panicked as Laker fans?

I’ve seen “invest in hard work” a few times already by the Lakers official Twitter account.

How ironic.

AD played well, LeBron played well, not a good game from Westbrook and teamwide turnovers were horrific.

Well to be fair, 76ers don't have Ben Simmons. They know they'll get reinforcements through the Simmons trade. Daryl Morey isn't stupid either. I would much rather be in the 76ers position than ours.

We didn't get no help from the bench either... Turnovers plus giving up 14 offensive rebounds. Vogel deciding to start AD at the 5 against tonight. Not sure what was the thinking there vs Adams.

Lebron played well for maybe 3 quarters... didn't attack in the 4th... had 0 points in the 4th... like I said, he looked like he was just looking for his 10th assist.

Lakers were disappointing to watch, top to bottom.

They played like they came in knowing they'd win.

Then didn't.

They were probably looking ahead to tomorrows game when they saw Brooks was out tonight too... The way they lost to OKC this year will make you do that.

Lot of people played bad tonight. Not really sure why Vogel played Carmelo and Bradley so much tonight when both were key letdowns. The team really outside of Lebron was a complete letdown today. We were up in the first and then regressed into careless basketball.

Flush this one down, learn from the lesson, onto OKC.

“We gotta own our (bleep)”

“We gotta play like underdogs.”

YAWN.

The 2020-21 Lakers are the B list (or D list in the NBA standings) that think their (bleep) doesn’t stink.
