    We picked the wrong year to be the worst team in the West, possibly worst team in the nba after the Hawks game. Should have done that the KAT or Simmons years. No clue what has happened to this team, but they appeared to have quit. Scrambling on defense making Charlotte look like the well-oiled machine Spurs of so many years on offense, struggling like hell to even get an open shot on offense.

    Bostons getting a top 3 pick.
    We're going to lose a lot more games.
    This was supposed to be a "pull out of the tailspin" game, but we played even worse than we have been.
    Just sit back and hope for Ingram, Ball or Kuz to play well despite the loses. That's the only solice.

    I am willing to put everyone on the block besides Lonzo and Kuz. And why in the world bring Kuzma off the bench. I mean he plays his best ball with Zo and now we starting that 3 shooting center who plays no D and is just disappearing besides hanging at the 3 point line.

    I think randle and Ingram (and attached Deng) can land us a real star player which would be a start.

    Fire Luke and let Shaw handle the season.

    I remembered when I posted Cranjis McBasketball "article " saying Lakers recruitment process was bad because the organization mainly hires people at key positions who are already Lakers related , leaving better candidates out of the process , some of you laughed at him .

    I still think he's right ( Scott , Luke , Magic , Pelinka ect)

    if only he lost the locker room in like, detroit or something...

    could have last year or last summer, but i think that ship has sailed. young players/draft picks depreciate REALLY quickly in terms of trade value. the #4 pick in the upcoming draft probably won't be better than ingram (statistically speaking), but the trade value of that pick is like, thrice ingram's right now.

    At one point we were down 25 to the freaking Hornets.

    Blow it up.

    Giving a high pick to the C Bags is worse than our current record.

    Hate to say it but I’m just about ready to check out on this season. Seems they’ve taken about three steps back from last season. No visible improvement. Hope a trade happens soon because some of these cats look like they don’t want to be here any more.

    I checked out after the OKC game. Looks like I'll be missing my first Lakers games in a decade. I have games on my DVR that I haven't watched but I may delete them.

    It looks bad when our most staunchest fans here are pulling back... Difficult times. I will still keep tabs on them. Get my jollies when The Tenants or the current leader in the East lose.

    I'm in for Jay Wright too. It worked with Stevens so why not?

    How much improvement/progress has been made since 2013-2014? Yea we’ve gotten some better players but overall we are still the same crappy team, stuck in the same crappy tier of the league with no improvement in sight.

    Another season hoping a top FA chooses us. The FO has indirectly made this season worthless with the salary cap talk and knowing that more than half the roster is not wanted, the season was setup for failure. It’s pretty sad that our season lasts the first week of free agency and we are left with waiting for that week year after year.

    Not going to win many games when the current squad is playing/looking for their next team and not this one.

    After viewing that Julius can GTFOH. I don't care any more. I remember myself yelling put your f****** hands up on the perimeter with that one guy shooting the 3 right in his face 4 feet away. His hands are rarely up. Those small arms must be heavy. Not even near the top of how egregious some of those s***** efforts were in that compilation. He has gotten his starts now at the 5 and at the 4 which needed to happen at the least so am satisfied.

    For all of you deserving my penance ..... what seasoning or sauce can I use to get down realdeal's infamous "whole family of"

    Wow. Never thought I'd see the day; now I know we're at "close" to rock-bottom. Rock-bottom (for me) is watching the C Bags get a top 5 pick this year and striking out in Free Agency.

    Lakers look like the Rams when Jeff Fisher was coaching.
