    Dude WTF they mean too far. I'm sure they've talked about that s*** already before the track.

    Example if my boy rapped and I told him my dad is a b****... Which he is and we had the fun s*** talking like they are, it's zero issue. Media is acting like they know if Kuz was offended lol. Weird.

    I think the FO is probably unhappy ... and rightfully so. Especially when Lavar comes out the next day acting like Kuzma deserved it and that him and Lonzo aren’t that close.

    I’m sure that’s just Lavar being Lavar, and Zo and Kuz are probably laughing about this, but it’s not a good look.

    And yeah maybe it’s just kids having fun... but it’s kids having fun. We’re trying to recruit free agents, not babysitters.

    HJ, I totally agree.

    The only thing problematic is you don't need to jump on iTunes for the whole world to hear your trollin. Throw him shade on snapchat or set up a freestyle battle at the practice facility.

    Went back and listened to Kuz's diss to Zo and have no idea why Zo went at Kuz with the dad line. Kuz in that B/R hater's ball joint only mentions Zo's girl in saying she shops at Forever 21 to get s*** for Zo to wear. He doesn't mention Lavar at all...so why did Zo have to do him like that? Hahaha

    Hate to say it, but if Kawhi, AD or any superstar is available....LA has their reason to send out these kids now. Even after all the ish with Lavar, we have our out and these kids gave them a reason.

    Been tellin yall BI is the guy you have to keep. I was high on Zo and still am, but dude's stock is dropping at the moment.

    You can have your "Kuz, tell me how my a** taste" moment AFTER you win a chip. Till then take shots...at the rim and get that free throw percentage up.

    We all have a sense of humor, but this is a multi billion dollar business...you go pro, so act like it now.

    I'm all about team building...but this team building ain't just about current Lakers. Do other free agents look at this s*** and say, on second thought...nah, they ain't grown enough.

    The media is definitely making it bigger than it is and that is why it's a problem. You don't need that type of heat right now. July 15th...sure. Now...not so much. How all of this could have been prevented? If the Lakers were playing into June.... And that is why the 2max needs to work.

    I know why Zo did it now... To help gain some awareness/attention for Pop's JBA league and for Gelo to get some shine heading into draft nite. But these just bad decisions and bad timing.

    Eeeeeh. Sorry Pete, but that one is a little bit of a fluff piece.

    Putting your defender in jail doesn't really require great strength, it's about technique. Steve Nash did that about as well as anyone ever and he certainly wasn't a real strong guy. Switching defensively with bigs will never be really easy for any guard outside of Ben Simmons, and increased strength will really only help so much. It's more about technique again in those situations and frankly better effort to get in front and force a pass over the top. When he got switched onto those bigs, he should fight to get in between the passer and the rim so that the pass has to be a lob. The lob allows the defense to rotate and since Lonzo is so tall and long for a guard, he can disrupt a shorter pass.

    What he's saying isn't wrong, but the part that will Lonzo most is staying healthy. I do agree driving would be much easier for him as well though.

    Haha. It's slow in the off-season and Pete is feeling the effects. Trying to pull content out of anything. I agree, some of this was common sense.

    Per Ramona & Ohm:

    Lonzo went too far in the diss track...and it might be his ticket out of LA this summer if we get both LeBron and PG...and I'm OK with us sending Lonzo out for Kawhi now. Hopefully Lonzo, Kuzma and Deng for Kawhi.

    I am usually not on the side of telling these guys what not to do BUT in this case I am because Lonzo should be, in my opinion, just working on his game and health. His father running his yap all season made me hope Lonzo would stay neutral and get some separation from pops nonsense. I actually think Lonzo has a bit of jealousy with Kuz who didn't come in with any of the hype but proved to be one of, if not the top, players on our team. No talk, no brashness or anything just balling.

    Like some said Lonzo could work himself out of LA not because he is simply being a dumb kid but because his dad has been a jack*** since the draft. Hopefully they cut this nonsense out.
