    We desperately needed a game like that. Can we play the Hawks the rest of the season?

    Or you could just not click on this thread and try to tell other fans how to root for the team.

    I said the same thing about Phoenix, next thing you know... Good that we only play them twice a season.

    Yeah, what's your point?

    How does forcing Magic and Rob to play the upcoming trade deadline hard (which is what I hoped for via a loss to the worst team in the league in Atl) even comparable to wanting Magic and Rob's plan to fail?

    Their plan aka the 2018plan aka the "2max player" plan aka the "instantly becoming a contender" plan is something some Laker fans want to fail?!?!? Yeah I got a f***ing problem with that.

    Meanwhile I was hoping for 1 loss in order for that plan of theirs to go into overdrive. For them to pick up the phone and "execute" that plan asap.

    Not sure how you "chewed" on it any differently but I hope I made it easier to swallow.

    Looks like ESPN got pressed into doing some damage control after their Lavar exclusive haha...

    Per ESPN's Ohm Youngmisuk:

    Also notice how Paul George's eyes gloss over a bit when he mentions being in a Lakers jersey....buckle up mother******s!



    Put the shovels down...its an RIP for the league, not the #2018plan

    "Always a great place to play whether he's ever in a Lakers jersey or not". So he is saying he will consider that possibility. That was pretty big. We've got almost 2/3 of the season to go with both teams and Magic and Rob already have one new player to see if it helps. Certainly more coming up by the deadline.

    And that was pretty awesome reading above for the moral victory savoring sewer rats amongst us. Loved that 36% number over the rest of the league's average of 35% of time leading against the top 5 teams in the score during the those games.

    That's all good stuff. Too bad whenever we lose our next game every word of it won't matter because Luke will suck, Ball will suck, Ingram will suck...Kuz will still be good but he'll be overrated or something. Magic will be an awful team president and somehow be remembered as an awful player as well. Rob Pelinka will be anti-manna.

    The more I see PG, the more I like him. The guy was created to be an LA Laker.

    Looked at the schedule for Jan and we have no back to backs at all. Thanks schedule makers after giving us an awful Dec.

    We're only 8 games out of the 8 seed right now. Plenty of time.

    Someone ardy spoke it into existence and such.
