    Lakers aren't making the Playoffs. Lakers will win vs the Cavs and Bulls. Then @ OKC, @ Hou, GS. Then they can go 2-6 or 1-7 in February. If Lakers did make it, 8th seed and then 1st rd sweep.

    Lonzo Ball, definitely a key piece for Lakers. He may not get points, and we still need him to scores. But he's a great hustle player and defender. A solid playmaker with high I.Q that can stop offensive plays.

It's a distraction, This will be handled one way or another. Magic Johnson doesn't play stupid Ass games. He's already damn near a Billionaire and doesn't give a shit about a shoe brand.

      SheLovesSidney who was the last pass first point guard that won the title? If ur defender don’t have to worry about you scoring it’s one less thing they have to worry about. The mental aspect of basketball is so crucial. Knowing you can score and ur man can’t gives you ultimate confidence. I’ve watched all the games, he misses lay ups, goes up soft, can’t hit free throws, and air balls the most threes I’ve seen a player airball in such a short time. He’s a good passer but rondo and lebron are even better so what purpose is he going to play when the pressure of playoff basketball comes into play. I don’t hate him I want him to do good but he’s just not that good right now

    • Sam Schrobilgen
      Sam Schrobilgen 3 months ago +3

      SheLovesSidney people also don’t realize ho good if a defender is either. If the season ended right now he’s an all nba defender. It’s a shame people base everything off of box scores

  • T Fish

    10 seconds left in the 4th. Rondo runs down the court with the ball. Kuz and Ingram are open. LeBron’s double-teamed. Rondo dishes it to LeBron in the corner. LeBron shoots a corner 3 from nearly behind the backboard and makes it as the buzzer runs out!!!
    Warriors win 132-98

      King Heem I just checked it and you’re right. He score 25 points by my math in the first half of the 81 point game.
      He also scored 42 points in the games first 30 minutes and 12 seconds. 40 under 30. And 52 points in the first 3 quarters.

    • King Heem
      King Heem 3 months ago +2

      Misleading..Kobe had 42 points in the first half (24 mins) vs MJ's Wizards..and had 50+ in the second half of his 81 point game.

    • Firestarter

      Kobe Bryant = BALL-DOMINANT
      Brandon Ingram is the "People's Champ" & Coach Walton's favorite, so Kuzma has more obstacles to overcome = 2 teammates that were #2 NBA Draft Lottery Picks, while Kuzma was only a #27 Pick = 4 draft picks away from 2nd Round.

      Kuzma is a 3-point shooter = doesn't need the ball in-hand like Brandon Ingram or LeBron James.
      That means Kuzma has Light-Skinned Brothers Connection with Lonzo Ball like Summer League Tournament from the past.
      Kuzma moves without the ball = Team Chemistry with anybody.
      Not only when LeBron James is playing
