Either they will get it together or there will be major changes.. it’s a win win as far as I’m concerned.

Welp so long Staples Center. Wish we could've won, but our players are beyond trash besides LBJ.

No let’s be realistic we have like what five players out due to Covid protocols and Anthony Davis to an injury this team is decimated you cannot build team cohesion when you’re missing players that you actually play having said that it does not look good

You merely adopted the Lakers being bad; I was born in it, molded by it. I didn't see the Lakers being good until I was already a man. By then it was nothing to me but blinding.

Worthy turning back the clock with the criticism. I haven’t seen him do it like that since D’Antoni was coaching.

The Spurs entire roster was in the positive.

The Lakers entire roster even all the D League guys were in the negative.

I know we’ve had a lot of bad losses but tonight was the worst statistically.
Rock Bottom with the possibility of losing more guys for the Christmas game

How can you expect a guy to play below his averages? We should have known he would have been literally ten times the player he normally is

Nahhhh, we need this team to be 100% healthy. That's the excuse all season. That's the PR move tonight.

Those MDA days were rough. Similar situation I guess Mike made Kobe play center a few times. Now we got Lebron playing center

There is no two way or any guy we pick up from the waiver wire that is gonna come and help this team.


I'm sure there's a defensive forward who can make an open layup. That's the bar

We don't even have a defense forward but now you want one that makes layups too?

Best I can do is a guy that used to be good, but people who stopped watching basketball 5 years ago will know who they are, and think they're probably good still.

Lakers had most of the roster when AD/Bron/Russ was playing and they were still playing uninspiring basketball most of the time, although it was much better then what we are seeing now.

Any game we didn’t win when WB scored 30 and had 5 TOs or less will come back to haunt us

Nice statline by Russ

Zero impact.

Sounds about right.

Would love to see the full roster before saying we should blow it up, but yeah I know what you mean. I just think where the Lakers were lacking the most help was where they were still hurt (defense, pg offense)

I haven't been pleased with this roster from day one but we're in this room now. I think we need to get healthy so we can get an accurate look in the mirror and then we can go from there.

11-6 record looks a lot better than 5-11... I can see why someone can show hope with the big 3 healthy while they were still trying to figure things out... They are getting derailed right now by injuries and covid protocol. But if they continue to play this way. Not sure it will matter by the time AD comes back.

Lakers get a pass this game... they ran into Keita "Can't Miss" Bates-Diop.

didn't have a chance.

The reason Russ' statline had no impact is because we played no D.
