Good job S.O. Lakers!

After tomorrow’s beat down, hopefully we get reinforcements and we probably need a 4-0 homestand against those 4 with the road trips coming up.

Heck no...I mean hell no!

Collison should never play alongside WB. He got to touch the ball about 3-5 times this game it felt like. He's a much better addition than IT. Dude actually plays defense.


I’m still okay for looking for a trade partner to get rid of Baze, THT, and DJ if there is any takers. An I’m pretty much ready to give up Nunn if we have to.

Sign DC and Stanley for the remainder of the season. Motion and cohesion on both sides of the ball much better with these two

Well we face one of those bigs tomorrow in Adams.. Who abused Davis last time we played them.

We just need to win the games were suppose to win until reinforcement comes back. Couple of surprise wins will be good also.

No. Not me. This felt like a win. Actually felt like they are finding some sort of rhythm. They just need to get their defense together, but with the acquisition of Stanley, AB coming back... It really helps defensively. If AD was in, would might have won by more because of his defensive prowess. To be honest, if Rob somehow got Grant and Ben Simmons, not saying it's gonna happen, but if, the league would be in trouble. Stanley, AB, AD, Grant, Ben Simmons, Reaves defensively.... Dang.


If we were somehow able to get Bradley Beal and Dame. Omg wow the league would be in trouble. Not gonna happen but I’ll say it anyways for no reason. Wow .


We have not been linked to Bradley or Dame, the coilation was not parallel.

I get keeping Dwight for those 7. Don’t understand DJ because he gets abused anyway and is a liability out there.

Embiid
Jokic
Gobert
Ayton
Adams
valanciunas

Dwight and AD when he gets back should be good enough.

We can go after Beal in after next season. He might be a good one to go with AD

Been saying it, Beal will be the guy to sign when Lebron and Russ clears in 2023… Lebron resigns to a team friendly contract. Lebron at that age probably focus more on playmaking rather than scoring. Lots of possibilities with $95m+ clearing the book.

AD
Lebron
Beal

Literally no super star guards play good defense, maybe except for PG13

Who would want Nunn though? Lets give him a chance see how he looks. He looked great against us in the finals.

Like he didn’t get lit up by booker and Payne in the playoffs? We need inside presence first and foremost


Caruso had his chance and (bleep) the bed. The Lakers would be no better/worse today with him on the team.

Give it a rest.
