***leaves them speechless***
My work here is done.
Yeah we got Brook
He may be slow
Mozgov's all it took
Along with D'Angelo
He doesn't rebound
But shoots the trey
So he can stick around
In the frickin N-B-A
Oh next summer
We like to see
The front office offer
The frickin M-L-E
Sign the contract
Accept the offer
We want you back
Coz yo a hometown Laker!
O ye chek id out
Chek id out
Nice Effort! Woot Woot!
Thank you, sir!
Just channeling my inner Vanilla Ice...
Nice game from Lopez tonight. I like how he started the game down in the paint and then branched out to the three point line. I give him a lot of grief, so here’s some props.
keep this guy and Jules, the rest can hit the road
He played great. He kept getting hacked and still scoring too. Meanwhile Jokic was flopping all over and getting every call. Lopez should have had like 3 and ones that weren’t called. Stupid a** refs.
He had 5 rebounds. I’m just so blown away that I’m actually speechless.
We’d be lucky if he accepted our max offer.
Me seeing Lopez get some love.
Mine was sarcasm
Oh really I couldn't tell.
Brook has been awesome of late. We’re utilizing him better and he’s looking like the all star we were expecting. Some game he is our go-to offensive guy down the stretch, and he’s executing.
And then there are still games where he’s invisible and only gets like 20 minutes a game.
But that’s a good thing. There are going to be games and opposing teams where he’s just not a good fit, or our small ball rotations are rolling. And he doesn’t complain about it at all, even being on a one year deal where he needs to worry about maximizing his market value. He just stays ready.
And I’ve always heard about his reputation for not getting many rebounds. For some reason, I had assumed that to mean that he only cares about scoring and is therefore a bad defensive player as well. Not the case though. His defense has really impressed me this season. Despite a lack of vertical ability, he’s great at contesting around the rim. Even though he’s a little slow, he’s got a good feel for the game and uses his size to still be a decent defensive anchor for us.
And about the rebounding, that’s a good thing. He’s just leaving boards for Lonzo so that Lonzo can pad his stats and break more records, improving the optics on our young core. What a great teammate!
Been yelling "GET IN THE POST" at the TV all year long. Nice to see him play to his strength
I understand that the league is trending to 3 point shooters at every basketball position. But seeing Brook dominate in the post is so much more enjoyable plus it's s higher percentage. I just wish Luke started him and Randle (which works the best with Brook) together in the beginning of the year.... Anyways I would be ecstatic to retain Brookie for mle next year.
I'm a big fan of post play. Unfortunately it's a dying art form.
