Is there a better way to use Josh Hart than having most of his shots be spot up threes 1:47 am Fri Nov 1 EDTRemoved

Josh Hart has been getting a pretty healthy amount of drives though. He isnt just taking threes. 32

If Javale continues at this pace can he become an unlikely All Star 11:18 pm Wed Oct 30 EDTRemoved

To be fair, DeAndre Jordan made an All-Star game. And his role was the same. 1

If Javale continues at this pace can he become an unlikely All Star 11:18 pm Wed Oct 30 EDTRemoved

Sure, but as of now Javale is averaging 16.5 and 7 with 3+ blocks a game. 0

Jason Tatum is from DUKE1:20 pm Fri Nov 15 EDTRemoved

Happens everytime someone young hits a hot stretch in the playoffs. Biyombo was the next big think in 2014 because of how he played because of the playoffs. Stephen Adams was supposed to be the best big man in the game because he killed it in the playoffs 1

Jaylen Brown vs Brandon Ingram redux12:20 pm Tue Dec 24 EDTRemoved

Im gonna have to go with the guy averaging more points, more assists, and the same number of rebounds, on better FG% and 3PT%, while playing better defense. Last year it was arguable. This year it isnt. 3

If Tim Duncan amp Kobe Bryant carried an average team who wouldve done a better job between them 9:07 am Thu Jan 17 EDTRemoved

These employees on The Ringer how much do they make 8:00 pm Wed Jan 23 EDTRemoved

No your trade package isnt enough 4:49 pm Mon Jan 28 EDTRemoved

Its a two team race. Its been a two team race since Boston fleeced the Nets and Lakers said no to Indiana for PG. 0

No your trade package isnt enough 4:49 pm Mon Jan 28 EDTRemoved

From what was reported, Indiana wanted Ingram. The Lakers didnt want to trade assets and would rather go after him in FA. 0

why would the pelicans want the lakers young core when they couldnt even go 500 without lebron 4:57 pm Mon Jan 28 EDTRemoved

why would the pelicans want the lakers young core when they couldnt even go 500 without lebron 4:57 pm Mon Jan 28 EDTRemoved

4 team blockbuster Trade for AD5:03 pm Mon Jan 28 EDTRemoved

Lakers arent giving up Ingram, Kuzma, and KCP for Bradley Beal. 1

Why is Kyle Kuzma Better than Pascal Siakam offensively 8:00 pm Mon Jan 28 EDTRemoved

>worse passing Not really. Siakam cant really pass either. Kuzma suffers from the Kobe syndrome where he looks off obvious passes to take shots. And when that happens, it looks horrible. But that doesnt mean hes abysmal at playmaking. Pascal is only a 1

Why is Kyle Kuzma Better than Pascal Siakam offensively 8:00 pm Mon Jan 28 EDTRemoved

Cool. His assist percentage is 13.5. Maybe he can pass. He just isnt. For comparison, Kuzmas is 11.2%. In the same ballpark. 2

Why is Kyle Kuzma Better than Pascal Siakam offensively 8:00 pm Mon Jan 28 EDTRemoved

Uhh Pascal is averaging .4 more assists. Kuzma plays on a team with LeBron, Rondo, Ingram, and Lonzo. At worst its a wash. 4

Why is Kyle Kuzma Better than Pascal Siakam offensively 8:00 pm Mon Jan 28 EDTRemoved

1. I was referring to his playmaking. 2. I think Pascal is better because of his defense. But even then its close. We definitely wouldnt trade him in a heartbeat. We probably wouldnt trade him at all, Kuzma fits in really well with LeBron. 2

Is the consensus now that AD will be shipped to Boston Assuming a trade isn t done by the deadline1:14 am Thu Jan 31 EDTRemoved

Why are Brandon Ingrams advanced stats so terrible 11:40 am Sat Feb 2 EDTRemoved

To add on to this. Hes been playing next to Rondo, Lonzo, and LeBron for a large part of the season and he didnt seem interested in playing off the ball. Which caused a lot of inefficiencies in the offense. Both for him and his teammates. The last coupl 6

Rich Paul and AD are playing 4D chess Breaking down trade packages from the listed teams2:55 pm Mon Feb 4 EDTRemoved

Yeah. Demps leaked the list not Klutch. So they got him to bite. 1

In a world where LeBron can be traded and the Pelicans demanded an AD for LeBron trade straight up do the Lakers do it 2:13 pm Mon Feb 4 EDTRemoved

No. 4

Is almost everyone here in agreement that ADs list is probably just a way to force him to LA 2:57 pm Mon Feb 4 EDTRemoved

Yes. Except Demps. The list was given to the Pelicans to back them into a corner. The Pelicans then leaked it because they thought theyd get leverage. 0

Demps messed up 3:05 pm Mon Feb 4 EDTRemoved

Why is nobody talking about the risk the Pelicans take of the Lakers assests appreciating in value amp Celtics assets potentially depreciating 5:16 am Wed Feb 6 EDTRemoved

Because the Celtics assets might appreciate and the Lakers assets might depreciate. 11

If you think LeBron is toxic or the issue with the Lakers you re a fucking moron 5:17 am Wed Feb 6 EDTRemoved

Yes, I agree. Everyone that think LeBron is the issue is a moron. LeBron has been dope. But... 2019 w/o LeBron: 6-12 (27 win pace) LeBron wasnt the only one missing during these games. Kuzma missed a handfull. Rondo missed a lot. Javale got pneumonia. T 18

But why trade him for Muscala? Hes better than Muscala. 18

why arent the Lakers fans questioning their ownership and front office 6:27 pm Fri Feb 8 EDTRemoved

Because they fired the people that were in charge for most of the timespan that youre talking about. And the new regime signed LeBron within a year and a half. 6

I m new to watching the NBA can someone explain how the NBA can force the Pelicans to play AD 12:29 pm Sun Feb 10 EDTRemoved

No, because the Pelicans would be the team that would benifit the most from ADs "ratings." But theyre the ones wanting to not play him. -4

I m new to watching the NBA can someone explain how the NBA can force the Pelicans to play AD 12:29 pm Sun Feb 10 EDTRemoved

They did this with Robin Lopez and the Bulls last year. This isnt selective at all. Even the Spurs have been fined before. 1

King Marcus Morris blasts Celtics after disappointing loss to Clippers We dont have no attitude we dont have no toughness 1:16 pm Sun Feb 10 EDTRemoved

Why does Walton get so much blame for the Lakers not being good when Magic has done a terrible job surrounding LeBron 5:57 pm Sun Feb 10 EDTRemoved

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. 1

Who is more clutch LeBron or Kobe3:35 am Fri Feb 22 EDTRemoved

Throughout his career its definitely LeBron. But there was a 4ish year window when Kobe was more clutch than LeBron at any point in his career. In 2011 for example, he went 7-7 in game winners. 7

When Lebr I mean Magic Johnson fires Luke Walton this summe which team do you think he should coach next 10:08 pm Mon Feb 25 EDTRemoved

LeBron deserves some flack but Luke is dogshit. And has been his whole tenure. Laker fans just liked that he wasnt Byron. https://www.bball-index.com/luke-walton-lame-duck/ Theres a few dozen reasons in that article as to why. 2

I swear if Lebron throws his teammates under the bus one more time 10:34 pm Mon Feb 25 EDTRemoved

Kobes tenure as a leader wasnt perfect. But the one thing he did do was blame himself when he played bad. Lets see if that happens. 26

I swear if Lebron throws his teammates under the bus one more time 10:34 pm Mon Feb 25 EDTRemoved

Kobe didnt blame his teammates when he, Kobe, was struggling. He did blame teammates when teammates were struggling. In LeBrons tenure with LA hes done the latter. Which is okay. But when you dont do the former, its a problem. 4

I swear if Lebron throws his teammates under the bus one more time 10:34 pm Mon Feb 25 EDTRemoved

Two days ago, LeBron called out his teammates for not knowing how to make the playoffs because they had never done it before. Kuz and Ingram are the ones that fall into that category. And they are not struggling. 3

Yes. But LeBron could too, if he tried harder and stopped moping. The question is, is that effort worth it? Because Kobe did something similar and ended up popping an Achilles. 5

How good would current Kobe be on a minor role on the Lakers11:54 am Sat Mar 9 EDTRemoved

Magic really just signed a contract traded away the brightest Lakers young core piece let Randle and Lopez walk then traded Zubac and then dipped10:10 pm Tue Apr 9 EDTRemoved

Lopez was dumb. But Randle is revisionist history at this point. Randle wanted a multiyear deal. If he signed that deal it be Randle or one of those guys. It would be Randle of the 2019 FA. And as much as I love Randle, even Kemba would be a better. 2

Does the Lakers gaining the 4 draft pick in the new draft lottery rules incentivise the 7-10 seeded teams to miss out on the playoffs 7:37 pm Wed May 15 EDTRemoved

AD Trade Is there any chance that AD can be traded to Atlanta 1:34 am Thu May 16 EDTRemoved

It isnt a risk. Its a guarantee that he walks. 2
