    Damn. Telling you, Luke overplayed the hell out of him. It was NEVER a smart move. No, Nance can't shoot like him, and sure Randle is mostly playing 5, but he should not have been playing 40 a game. It's not like we have more wins from it, do we? Luke going all Antoni on him.

    I sense serious issues trusting players. It's like certain players are security blankets, and the big picture gets left out and backups don't get developed. Seriously how much time did our backup PG's get while Ball was playing? He'd go with another center on the floor or someone out of position before he'd play Ennis or Caruso. It hasn't benefitted anyone, and it certainly didn't make for more wins.

    I was going to make some sly comment about Richard Jefferson and abandonment issues, but nothing makes Luke's rotations funny.

    Kuz just banged the same knee with another player.

    Sure, he's playing a lot of minutes, but I think this is just a case of getting hit in the same spot. He'll be fine.

    Haha...recap? Sit your lazy a** through it.

    In a nutshell, it just confirms Kuz is chill AF and is a keeper for me.

    So...you're not willing to Kuz control through it.

    Fine...hit that gear button and watch this s*** at 1.5 or 2 speed. Win!

    You are sooo not a team player

    I would totally recap for you if you asked. I thought we were tight.

    Haha...you're just going to make me type up something so that you can post a tldr on my a**.

    But since we tight, I'll try to make this quick....

    Kuz's bestie is Zo, but he also brought up Hart and TBryant so he's real tight with his draft class. Thinks Zo is a clown and how fans don't get to see the real side of Zo.

    Sorry Lakers fans, but his fav team are the Pistons and mentioned Prince and Big Ben by name and how satisfying it was for the Pistons to beat us in '04.

    Wants to work on help-side defense and continuing to score efficiently. Knows that improvement is a steady climb and it won't happen overnight.

    Just wants the team to show improvement at the end of the season. Didn't mention playoffs, so I guess reality is setting in. Implies that he would like the team to stick together, so maybe he knows something could be coming down the pike soon in terms of the trade deadline.

    His top 5 are Magic, Kobe, MJ, LaBron, Shaq

    He also dropped a ton of "So..."s and "you know"s....but I think I got the main points in there. The rest was him just reaffirming how we got a good one and should be a Laker for a very long time.

    So...
