    Wasn't sure where to put this. I'll try here in case we don't like Chris Mannix (he's coming out here) and in case this blows up in the locker room for obvious reasons, and I'm still waiting for LaVar's first attack comments on the Rondo signing. Seems better fit here than the Optimism thread.

    Actually I think a few of us were ranting about the negativity permeating the entire forum, so it’s not actually WMC about the WMC thread, it’s about WMC in like literally every other thread. Funny though.

    My post wasn’t just about the WMC thread either. Some points applied here, but all the praise for the Boogie acquisition had me scratching my head and annoyed. He’s never won in the NBA, the Pelicans got better after he left and he has the worst injury an NBA player can get. Not sold he even plays next year to be honest.

    Also think the locker room stuff is being overblown a bit. I worry about Rondo a bit but think Stephenson will be alright.

    True. I think only Rondo has had a history of locker room issues. Most teams with Lance Stephenson like him.

    It is a lot of characters though and will be interesting to see how Luke juggles them.

    Luke will definitely have to quickly earn their respect but I feel like between him, Shaw, and Magic it will work out. If not, I think we can move with minimal damage thanks to contracts they are on.

    Very true. If things look sideways, we've got a lot of expirings to work with at the deadline.

    The main issue will be about the style of ball Lebron wants to play and the one Luke wants ... halfcourt against a fast pace one .

    We all know Lebron will have the last word

    This is why there will be players trades during the season too .

    There's no good reason we can't push pace and also have LeBron take control in half court sets. I dont see why LeBron would be opposed to easy buckets.

    Precisely, we are just far less likely to break down in half court sets now with LeBron, Lonzo can play off ball more in the half court which will be nice to see more of.

    I’m supposed to root for a guy I’d rather see us beat. This “transition” may be slow and painful, and it may never occur tbh.

    I’d say he doesn’t deserve to wear the jersey, but then I’d have to explain most of the new signings :Laugh:

    Every now and then I forget why I hate Zach Lowe, but then it all comes rushing back to me.

    The media, whether in sports, politics or everyday news are a cesspool of feces and urine. Any player, politician or citizen who denigrates the media, I support. Because the media is a toilet and that toilet needs to be flushed at all times.

    lowe is pretty pathetic. he's such a shill for morey, it's sort of painful to watch. even rockets fans are kind of squeamish about his pro-rockets bent. and, of course, like all former bloggers he hates the lakers with the fire of a thousand suns.

    doesn't help he's a C Bags honk, too.

    it's a shame, because i'm actually interested in some of the non-C Bags/rockets/lakers takes he has, but he just kills his credibility whenever he starts talking about one of those franchises.

    in that piece he suggested that the lakers botched the draft until the last two years, which i thought was funny. this after running through all the failures in FA over the past few years with glee while just kind of sweeping the fact that we signed one of the greatest players of all time under the rug.

    not surprised that he led with the thunder as offseason winners (before the obligatory genuflection on the harden deal *allhailmorey* #neverforget!), either. because PG showed us that the lakers are still trash! right gaiz?! kawhi leonard need to go to the C Bags! or philly (for nothing)! or houston (probably)!
