Will Tyson Chandlers 5 6 rebounds and 67 fg help the Lakers tonight against the Minnesota Timberwolves 7:23 pm Wed Nov 10 EDT

statistically they are a good offensive rebounding team (12th in ORB%) but terrible defensively (30th in DRB%) 1

Will Tyson Chandlers 5 6 rebounds and 67 fg help the Lakers tonight against the Minnesota Timberwolves 7:23 pm Wed Nov 10 EDT

he can hopefully just be a big body that grabs boards, thats an insane upgrade over what we already have had at the backup 5 spot. Maybe playing for his home and with LBJ can motivate him to try to protect the rim more, but Im not holding out too much hop 5

freedom of movement discussion what are your thoughts on it so far 7:00 pm Wed Nov 10 EDT

defence has always been my favourite part of basketball so Im not a fan 1

You know how in the playoffs when Bron is going off it looks like he could do that every night if he wanted Tonight we have a rare sighting of Playoff LeBron during the regular season12:25 am Thu Nov 18 EDT

gotta give some credit to that ref that mis called the travel, LeBrons whole demeanour changed after that and he started to go completely off 0

Whats your favorite advanced stat 5:35 pm Sun Nov 21 EDT

player tracking data is by far number one for me 1

Brandon Ingram is horrendous7:47 pm Sun Nov 21 EDT

he has really regressed hard from last season, especially his finishing. Hopefully hes still sorting out a different role playing with LeBron but definitely has been disappointing -1

In his old age Lebron makes scrubs good and stars bad Change my mind 5:00 pm Thu Nov 25 EDT

pretty much exactly what I was about to comment, you cant just say he makes all stars look bad because stars have such a huge variety in playstyles. A guy like Giannis?I would honestly feel terrible for the opposing interior defence but yeah obviously Gia 0

Lonzo Ball in 33 minutes finishes 1-6 FG 0-3 from 3 with 2 pts12:58 am Fri Dec 3 EDT

that doesnt mean he sucks ass, hes a good role player right now 72 games into his career. He wont ever be better if he doesnt improve his scoring but hes shown he at least has a place in the league 5

Lonzo Ball in 33 minutes finishes 1-6 FG 0-3 from 3 with 2 pts12:58 am Fri Dec 3 EDT

hes a seriously impactful player defensively with good passing and rebounding, thats at least role player you can give minutes to. Look at Marcus Smart, he for his career averages 9ppg on a 48 TS% but still gets 28mpg in his career. 3

http://www.mynbadraft.com/nba-draft-picks/2nd-overall/20509/ thats kind of surprisingly the norm, not saying you still dont expect more from a #2 pick, but its funny on average they end up around that level 3

Lonzo Ball in 33 minutes finishes 1-6 FG 0-3 from 3 with 2 pts12:58 am Fri Dec 3 EDT

hes shot over 40% from three in 11/21 games this season, he has solid/good offensive games and terrible offensive games, rarely inbetween. I think his issue is when his shooting is on hes solid but when hes off its downright terrible. 1

Lonzo Ball vs the lowly Suns today 30 minutes 7 points 3-10 from the field 0-2 from the field 3 turnovers9:23 pm Sun Dec 5 EDT

Lonzo is about as good of a defender as you can be at the point guard spot, much is a stretch but even if we give you that this was originally about "good role players arent inept on offense" do you think Smart has never been a good role player before th 1

How come Duncan wasnt considered the best player in 02 04 05 and 07 like Lebron has been for the past however many years 8:20 pm Tue Dec 7 EDT

Could the lakers beat any team in a 7 game series except for the warriors 10:59 pm Wed Dec 22 EDT

Hes still capable of the kind of performances that could put the team over the top against anyone (except for the warriors). Key word capable, in the east it was expected but in the west theres just a chance of him doing enough 1

Do the Cavs have a better chance at AD than the Lakers 11:52 pm Sun Jan 17 EDT

Kuzma with 29/9/4, BI with 22/7/2 and Lonzo with 13/8/8 1

Do the Cavs have a better chance at AD than the Lakers 11:52 pm Sun Jan 17 EDT

yeah but it was mostly on the role players specifically in this game and the overall team defence Im not saying Id be lining up to trade AD for these guys if I was the pelicans, but this wasnt the game to prove anything 1

Who says no to this trade 4:29 pm Mon Jan 18 EDT

I feel like the Lakers and Pelicans are giving up too much here 4

Who says no to this trade 4:29 pm Mon Jan 18 EDT

Id be more inclined to do that in the off-season after free agency. Between keeping the young core, or getting AD Id obviously choose AD, but Id rather the FO go for a home run of LeBron, Max FA and trading the young core for another star piece this off-s 1

Who says no to this trade 4:29 pm Mon Jan 18 EDT

sixers would run away laughing with that 2

Who says no to this trade 4:29 pm Mon Jan 18 EDT

thats just the risk Im willing to take personally, we have a real shot to build a dynasty this off-season, or we could trade for AD now and be locked into maybe beating the warriors 1

Who says no to this trade 4:29 pm Mon Jan 18 EDT

maybe I worded that wrong, Id give that up in a heartbeat after free agency but the timing of it isnt ideal. We arent just giving up the trade pieces, we are giving them up as well as hopes at a max free agent. Id rather take the risk and go for LeBron, M 1

Would you consider this team better then the Lakers 2:02 am Mon Jan 25 EDT

Jokic averaged 22/5 Game by game went 21/2, 30/9, 22/5, 16/4, 20/5 Was solid but not his MVP level self Also almost fouled out of every game 2

Would you consider this team better then the Lakers 2:02 am Mon Jan 25 EDT

I wouldnt really call that feasting Its like if LBJ averaged 23/8/5 in a series, or AD put up 24/7/2 Feasting to me is when a player just dominates a team 1

Is getting a rebound more luck-based rather than skill athleticism 5:37 pm Sat Feb 20 EDT

Luck is part of it, but luck is also part of just about every other aspect of basketball You can be lucky your teammate made a shot off a pass to get you an assist You can be lucky your defender fell asleep leaving you open And so on 1

Kevin OConnor Sources The Lakers will be among the teams to pursue DeMarcus Cousins The market will be limited for Cousins sources say He has struggled this year after returning from multiple major injuries But for LA or any team in need of big man6:39 pm Sat Feb 20 EDT

Why are roleplayers on LeBron led teams uncharacteristically garbage at shooting time and time again 11:28 pm Sat Feb 20 EDT

Love shot 38% from three with bron and has shot 37% since 4

Why are roleplayers on LeBron led teams uncharacteristically garbage at shooting time and time again 11:28 pm Sat Feb 20 EDT

The lebron lakers teams havent had high level shooting talent from the start His 2018 cavs were 6th in 3PT%, 2017 was 2nd and 2016 was 7th Give him the shooting talent and he gets results, nothing too deep about it 0

So Blake joins the nets If Lakers win a repeat would lebron be considered the GOAT 5:46 pm Fri Mar 12 EDT

Why does being all defense matter in the MVP race this year when the consensus this year is that everyone is having an all time great season offensively 6:59 pm Fri Mar 19 EDT

Huh? 15

Why does being all defense matter in the MVP race this year when the consensus this year is that everyone is having an all time great season offensively 6:59 pm Fri Mar 19 EDT

Yet we have the second best record in the West on the back of the best defence in the league and an average offence 6

without his defence the playmaking wouldnt matter 4

What merit does Bron have for MVP 6:41 pm Fri Mar 19 EDT

I think Harden is playing at the level but its hard to give it to someone who right now has only played 27 out of his teams 41 games played Obviously cause he started in Houston, but like Embiid getting injured I think you gotta play for your team to be 3

What merit does Bron have for MVP 6:41 pm Fri Mar 19 EDT

Had good stats but they were 2-6 with him, then he demanded a trade. Definitely wasnt an MVP in Houston so its all on his Brooklyn time, for which hes played 27/41 games 4

What merit does Bron have for MVP 6:41 pm Fri Mar 19 EDT

I guess we just have different ideas of what MVP means, to me its about leading your team from start to finish through the whole season. He didnt do that in Houston so we gotta look at what he has done with the Nets, which so far is only play in 27/41 gam 3

What merit does Bron have for MVP 6:41 pm Fri Mar 19 EDT

To me MVP is about leading your team from start to finish, he didnt do that this year with Houston but has with the Nets. However hes only played 27 games for them so its not enough 2

What merit does Bron have for MVP 6:41 pm Fri Mar 19 EDT

Cause nobody on the Jazz is also putting up 26-8-8 with first team all defence, without their co star for half the season and playing in 40/41 games Its a combination of all those things 6

What merit does Bron have for MVP 6:41 pm Fri Mar 19 EDT

Tick which boxes Mitchell falls under for me 26-8-8 First team all defence Elite team record 40/41 games Co star missed half the season 8

We about to see how good the depth of this Lakers you guys speak off12:09 am Sun Mar 21 EDT

Tbh I feel like our record without AD (especially with Schroder) already showed the strong depth. Injuries to Gasol and Caruso during that time too. Im taking winning anything in this stretch as just a nice bonus 2

Lakers without Anthony Davis and LeBron James are The Worst Team in the NBA1:17 am Sun Mar 21 EDT

Why does Luke Walton get so much hate Especially from Kings fans1:42 am Sun Mar 21 EDT

Holy shit was that the idea, Luke Walton of all people was meant to fix the halfcourt offence? I follow a guy on twitter who used to do the playbooks for 2k. He said he had to make up plays for the lakers back in his day because they didnt meet the minim 1

r NBA experts how would you rank Giannis AD Jokic amp Embiid 7:31 pm Wed Apr 7 EDT

Giannis still has legitimately elite numbers with DPOY defence in the playoffs he has had some bad games and I would take Jokic in the playoffs over him, but still not some massive gap or anything 0

r NBA experts how would you rank Giannis AD Jokic amp Embiid 7:31 pm Wed Apr 7 EDT

wait are we talking the year he only had Boogie for 48 games, Mirotic for 30 games and Rondo for 65 games? Was that the year he swept Dames Blazers then took a game of the Steph/KD warriors averaging 30/13 in the playoffs? without Boogie? thats a year you 3

r NBA experts how would you rank Giannis AD Jokic amp Embiid 7:31 pm Wed Apr 7 EDT

Your flair makes me think this is reverse order? 4

r NBA experts how would you rank Giannis AD Jokic amp Embiid 7:31 pm Wed Apr 7 EDT

Giannis over the last three playoffs averages 26/12/5 on 52% shooting with DPOY defence. Hes had some bad games but his issues are way overstated, its undeniably much more of an issue for Embiid. playoff Jokic isnt infallible either, he lost in 5 to the 1

Blake griffin 10 2 2 on 80 LMA 14 2 2 on 50 100 100 at halftime 8:58 pm Wed Apr 7 EDT

exactly we got the same shit about winning in the bubble ring is a ring baby, they all wish it was them in your situation 2

Blake griffin 10 2 2 on 80 LMA 14 2 2 on 50 100 100 at halftime 8:58 pm Wed Apr 7 EDT

I will, when we first signed LeBron at 34/35 years old to that young ass team I figured at least one ring is a massive win. Anything else is a cherry on top but I will say I definitely dont think we have no chance against the Nets 1

Blake griffin 10 2 2 on 80 LMA 14 2 2 on 50 100 100 at halftime 8:58 pm Wed Apr 7 EDT

definitely but I do think once LeBrons cap space is free someone is going to want to come to the Lakers to play with him 1

Why isnt Donovan Mitchell talked about as an MVP candidate 5:17 am Thu Apr 15 EDT

you arent going to find an MVP this year that fits the traditional combination of impact and seeding I think though Mitchell is being dismissed because hes not the most impactful player on his own team 11

Why isnt Donovan Mitchell talked about as an MVP candidate 5:17 am Thu Apr 15 EDT

no cause like I said hes not the most impactful player on his own team, thats definitely not traditional for an MVP 10

Why isnt Donovan Mitchell talked about as an MVP candidate 5:17 am Thu Apr 15 EDT

which one of those are you saying is arguably the most impactful on their team this season? 4

Why isnt Donovan Mitchell talked about as an MVP candidate 5:17 am Thu Apr 15 EDT

Kawhi isnt really seriously in many MVP talks Ive seen, largely I think because people are giving credit to PG. Even then the argument for him is understanding hes very clearly better than PG. KD has played about 20 games this season, thats why hes not b 2
