So we've just given up?

Losing is one thing but games like this where we just tap out really just vex my soul.


Got Beatdown today. Down 2-0 in the regular season series to them ,2 more to go.

There’s some actual teachable moments to move forward on. We still got enough players to win games.

Anyone know if the AM 710 postgame shows are podcasted anywhere, or are they just exclusive to radio?

At least he has potential (unlike half our guys).


And he literally just got off the plane today. I thought he brought great energy and effort unlike a goodly chunk of our team tonight.


I dont ever want to see that guy play meaningful minutes again. Dude is a chucker we've got plenty of those.


Better to chuck and actually make the shots.


And what happens when he inevitably starts clanking? Where is his impact going to come from? We've got plenty of those on this team. The last thing we need is another one who's incapable of playing defense. We've got plenty of those as well.

Like seriously wtf is this team? IT should have no business playing meaningful minutes.

They are definitely one of those teams that wouldn't be a bottom feeder if they went into every game like they were playing the Lakers.

LBJ Sez he asked AD how he's doing and AD just said "we'll find out more tomorrow ".

Remember how bad Giannis bent his knees last season? The dude came back and played in the finals. AD’s didn’t look as bad, but probably out for a while
Worst case -MCl
Best case- knee contusion

Who else should’ve played?

With Bradley, reaves, monk, THT, nunn, and Ariza out?

Calm Tf down haha. He played cause we literally don’t have enough bodies.

Its not like the chuckers on the Lakers have scored as much as IT did tonight. Baze scored 11 in 28 for his season high. Got the start today and scored 11 on 8 shots in 24 minutes. IT scored 19 in 21 minutes.

Chaundee Brown Jr scored 0 in 15 minutes. He saw the floor long before IT did.

Ellington got 8 in 29 minutes.

Carmelo 8 in 28.

We have chuckers for sure, but they don't score. And they have a much better understanding of the offensive and more time with their teammates.

The point is, are there 12 guys ahead of him on the Lakers that you would pick over him right now? I look at this roster and i struggle to find 8.

If the Lakers are at full strength that is another story, but wake me from my sarcophagus when that happens

Dude i am calm lol. I actually won money on us losing lol thats the kind of faith i had going into this game

Just saying in future games. I get we didn't have bodies this game. But i dont want him playing meaninful minutes. He isn't going to contribute unless he's hitting shots at a good efficency. He's lost major steps he cant break down defenses anymore with his penetration. Liability on defense and defenders will sag of off him due to his height and loss of step.

If he ends up having a MCL type injury he will likely be out for a few weeks, at that point you hope that Pelinka gets on the phone and looks for a big man... (Myles Turner...Jonas Valancuinas)...etc..etc.

Coming from McTen this is interesting

Per McTen

Source familiar with Anthony Davis’ knee knee tells ESPN, “so far all is in good structure, but want to take another image”

Im just saying dude it's not going to end well in my opinion. Only way to justify him playing is if he gets hot from the perimeter. Im tired of watching us add more non existent defenders reliant on them making shots in order to make an impact.

This is huge, so huge that if I had to choose between the Lakers winning this game or AD’s knee being in good condition I would choose the later.
