Why does Walton get so much blame for the Lakers not being good when Magic has done a terrible job surrounding LeBron? Im not even talking about signing stars, getting passed on by Paul George and not bringing Kawhi or Davis was bad enough, but LeBron needs to be surrounded by shooters, not by guys like Lance, Rondo, Beasley or KCP. And now he gave up a good young player in Zubac for another bricklayer in Muscala, who has been shooting 34% from 3 when almost 99% of his shots are wide open(I think his shots when defenders are closer than 4 feet accoount for 1.4% of his total shots)
Why is there a new post saying this exact same thing every 2 minutes?
Its Luke Walton-stans. Theyre so annoying. They were the same way when he was playing. I mean, yeah, his 25 point game against the Hawks in 2006 was an iconic performance of the ages. But hes no Smush Parker. And these guys just cant see that.
Because Luke is an idiot who tries to run the bench offense through Lance Stephenson without any of their top 3 scorers on the floor.
Rip Zubac, Russell and Randle
Because there are things you can watch in game to judge a coach and big picture takes like this arent helpful or informative.
lebron blows up every team for 3 and D players that can’t shoot the 3 or play D
accurate, and fair, take
Nothing has been blown up what are you on?
How did he blow up the Lakers? The only players theyve moved are Zuback, Svi and Beasley.
dare i say im okay we missed on lebron now
This isn’t really accurate, considering the Lakers went out and got Rondo, Stephenson and Javale while keeping Lonzo, Kuzma and Ingram on the team as rotation players. I don’t think any of three guys were mistaken for 3-and-D players coming into the s
Anthony Davis is a 3 and D player?
Thats a great question.
Yeah Magic and Pelinka deserves a lot of blame too but Luke’s coaching has been sus too. When Philly made the run we didn’t have any starters in... His rotations have always been questionable ever since he started coaching this team.
Because when healthy we play well. And when the right lineups play we play well. When lineups, which redditors can immediatly tell are dogshit play, we suck. And it isnt because we dont have alternatives. Luke just doesnt use them.
Because he puts out lineups like Rondo/Lance/KCP/Muscala/Tyson
I mean they have 4 all stars and their bench lit us up. Sometimes you just lose.
lebron makes the decisions. magic is just a face at this point
Because the GM isnt going to blame himself. And hes certainly not going to blame his top-3 player of all time.
No clue. Poor Luke is in a no-win situation. Its not his fault that Magic and Pelinka assembled a garbage meme team
LeBron doesnt get enough blame for destroying the locker room by trying to trade everyone and fire the coach
Luke was already on the hotseat
Everyone is blaming LeBron for that. What planet do you people live on where you think no one is blaming LeBron for that, the Lakers season, global warming, and WW2.
Palinka and Magic are the ones on the phone. Stop pushing the LeGM narrative.
You think LeGM is a narrative? LeBron Stans are wild
