Old Man Trevor looked good with the 15 minutes he was on the floor.

Having him definitely boosts up our defense. Sucks we lost AD for a couple weeks. I can see these two working well together on the defensive end


AD = a month at least

Doctors are going to reevaluate in four weeks.

You meant couple of months? AD is a slow healer


Will see...

Lebron and company gotta stay healthy too

Can people stop with the “we should have gotten DeRozen”?
We didn’t have a chance.
He was a free agent - we only had MLE and LLE open..
He got $30 million per year
Spurs would not have done a sign and trade

So, want to make sure folks stop saying that..

Literally just rebound the ball


Our small ball lineup looked pretty damn good at stretches just couldn’t rebound the damn ball.

It’s funny how there’s a few posters here who said we are better without AD

Crazy that our small ball lineup struggles with rebounds when you Lebron and Russell on the floor

Aside from rebounding, LeBron and Russ were great going to the rim because of the shooters. They don’t have that luxury with AD out there. Teams don’t respect him from the three. AD would help defensively but would have hurt us offensively. He really needs to find his shot from outside. So, I’m on the fence on just how much he would have helped.

Screw the Derozan trade. Just create a time machine and avoid the WB collision.

AD is an injury magnet. I don't know whether to class him fragile or injury prone. The Lakers had a real shot at this game. Couldn't close.

Different build, it just seems he is more fragile. The way he moves/jumps, it just looks unorthodox at times. You see players built like a tank ( Giannis/lebron/Westbrook), but that’s just not AD.

Just sit Lebron for the next three games. No point in trying to win them. Without AD, we need use Lebron wisely just to get enough wins to make the playoffs.

So I get with a veteran team that you give them the benefit of less shoot arounds and less practice.

However, that’s reserved for veteran teams who have earned that privilege…not one who is lazy and allergic to doing the little things to win games.

If they don’t want to work for rebounds and loose balls in addition to a pretty important requisite of defending, then you don’t cancel shootarounds or practice time.

Enough of this (bleep) with a bunch of declining name players who think they are above winning basketball.

The nets will probably be without their big 3, or at least KD/Kyrie
Totally fine with him sitting next game

To get swept in the first round?

This is as much on Lebron as it is on anyone else. This is what it looks like when he uses all the assets in the cupboard and then he ends up with old, name teams who don’t scare anyone in the league.

Team has no identity. Last season if our offense looked it was fine because our defense would keep us in it. This season we ripped our defensive identity away in favor of offense. We keep the same team as last year.

We wont lose against OKCx2-Wolvesx2...We sure as hell wouldn't lose to a team missing Lavine. We panicked after the 1st round exit.

As Tom Hardy said in the Drop..The drew we flinched.

+9 Turnovers, -7 in ORebs, and -11 in FT's made with Derozan shooting 17 FT's... Still had a chance on winning this game.

Lebron/Russ/Rondo to end the game was just brutal... Rather have had Ellington in there. Not sure why you need 3 PG's on the court.

This team as presently constructed isn't going anywhere. Unless half the roster starts getting 10 years younger.

This is the symbol of this trash ass team. Nothing sums up the 2021-22 Lakers better than this clip.

Make the playoffs with everyone healthy. Anything can happen. We'd be the most dangerous 8th seed. Even if there's the slightest glimmer of hope of winning #18, I'm not gonna give up. The alternative is to give up on the season which doesn't do us any good since we don't even have the first round pick.

Why should famous players have to do the dirty work? Leave it to scrubs like Caruso, McGee, and KCP.

I get it AD has been inconsistent to say the least. But if he was gonna break out of his cold streak I’d like to think he would go off in his hometown of Chicago. Erasing all of those second chance points the Bulls got. Last night we really missed his 10 rebounds a game that he is currently averaging.


My cousin from Chicago called me and proposed Tony Bradley, Derrick Jones JR, Patrick Williams and some draft picks for AD.




I immediately pushed end on my iPhone.
