And on the same day LeBron gave us free pizza too. SMH
Man ESPN still coming with the LakerHAte.. This is the most butt hurt article I've read on LABron.
This makes all fans look bad. It's an embarrassment.
Seriously f*** all Laker fans (and all people) that'd vandalize someone's hard work for some petty nonsense.
But they ain't Laker fans...they Kobe stans....that much is obvious. Laker fans and Kobe stans ain't the same ...and that much is also obvious.
I can say this without any hesitation...f*** player stans who charade as team fans. Go follow boxing and leave the team sport arena altogether. The stans are the only real blemish on Kob's legacy....truff.
Orrr, they just mad he was a no show to the pizza party.
Zach Lowe looks like he never touched a basketball in his life.
Apparently winning free agency is keeping your team the exact same, the very same team that lost to a young Jazz squad led by a ROOKIE? Funny how he starts out with trying to defend OKC by saying staking the claim that everyone's going to mention that anyway. Well duh, you have two all stars and you still couldn't get over the hump. And somehow some "defensive ace" who shoots worse than Shaq and time is going to fix that? Just sounds like a whiny loser making excuses to me.
And then he has the audacity the Lakers had "sort of" winning free agency is landing the biggest free agent of them all, then tries to base the Lakers free agency on past failures with a different front office.
Yeah okay, buddy. Nice troll piece, I'm not biting.
I don't think it's as bad as people are making it out to be, we have people that can shoot, also consider that we have 3 of the hands-down best set-up people in Bron, Ronda and Ball. We should see better percentages.
Rondo though typically low on 3s (.333 last year) he shot well in the playoffs, .421 on 3s, and reg season eFG was .521%. Penetrates, creates shots. Ball, who knows what we will get, just being honest there.
At the 2 we are fine. Either KCP or Hart are good shooters, (KCP .383 on 3s & eFG .526 - Hart .396 on 3s eFG .576 - great defenders
At the 3 BI 39% on 3s .497eFG% - Kuz .366 on 3s .527 eFG% or Svi if Svi can hang with that unit. Lance, not so much on the 3s
At the 4 Lebron .367 3s and .590 eFG% will shoot better being offball a little more getting set up by Rondo/Ball or Kuz @ the 4 - he's off the charts near the rim anyways and going to play inside more.
At the 5 I have no idea. Mo can stretch but would we start a rook? Maybe we have LBJ @ the 5 sometimes.
Our rookies from last season all shot better toward the end of the season with the exception of Ball who shot wildly well for 1 1/2 months in the middle of the season, then regressed. Kuz, Hart and KCP will all shoot better. Hard to imagine Ball won't either after last year's disaster and better setup people for him.
3 rookies that all take 3s have a year under their belts. We added 2 more of the best distributors in the NBA. Almost everyone on this team can pass. Lebron will get some open shots with all the cutters and passers, as will others.
It's not GSW, it's something else all together and I do know one thing, it's gonna be interesting as hell, especially the defense.
Bad! sirron ....
LOL .... @KareemtheGreat33 is always blaming that on me.
Not many free agents in the history of the game would be so polarizing to their own fan base who is desperate to win.
1. You have to be great
2. You have to be an a**
Ladies and gentlemen, Lebron James.
Should be an interesting ride.
Also there is 0 chance we beat Golden State and Houston trying to outshoot them from the perimeter. We saw Houston try this last year and miss 27 STRAIGHT 3 pointers. It won't work. We need to win with tough defense. The Cavs did this in 2016. Bumping Curry every time he tries to cut. Grabbing Klay to slow him down around a screen. Bruising in the paint. It's these little things that will wear them down over a 7 games series and interrupt their rhythm just enough to throw them off their shooting. Boston is another example of a team that did this to us in 2008. That was the idea behind signing KCP, Stevenson, and Rondo.
I’m not an Instagram person but supposedly people have noticed LeBron started following Kuzma, Lonzo, Ingram, and Hart. But then he also apparently unfollowed Paul George.
Sad, but the absolute #Truff
Also... Here's Jenkin's new SI article about LABron:
I loved that quote from Rich Paul. What a cool image.
Gotta love it!
does this picture make you want to slap one of these three players? If so, which one? Asking for a friend....
Can you zoom in 800% and enhance? Like on TV? We'll have the schmuck.
I’m on it!
