    The Lakers don't need to make any trades this year, just ride it out under the salary cap like the way they are now, they are making money and might even make the playoffs. I'd wait until the offseason to make changes.

    Lakers didnt expect to win this year, they knew it would take 2-3 years. They still need to sign another superstar.

    If Lakers cannot trade for AD, due to NBA policies, they can try trading for Hassan Whiteside, who gives the Heat a good game every now and then.

    Lakers are very good at driving to the hoop in the fast break and in the half court game. When they are off they get 3pt shot crazy. They should experiment, what if the coach said lets not take any 3's this whole game? Drive and dish up the yin yang, I don't care if you get your shot blocked or an offensive foul just drive and dish for mid range jumpers. dunks or layups... that's our strength. They could not take any 3's and still score 120 pts. Only thing is their free throw shooting is beyond pathetic. Geez as an NBA player they all make enough money to have a mansion and build a full size gym, and practice free throws for an hour every night at home... shooting ft less than 75% as a team is ridiculous, Lonzo Ball isn't even coming close when he misses, its brick after brick, beyond pathetic.

    The Nuggets won’t make it to the conference finals. They don’t have that type of team. Stop hyping something up for the sake of hype.

    I bet Warriors showcase Cousins before trade deadline so team can see he can play and give quality minutes. Then Warriors trade him to East contender like Boston, Miami or Orlando for some 1st round draft picks.

    with all the shots the players miss because of all the 3 point shots if boogie can rebound those and take the ball to the paint I could see him getting easily and nice 20 points or so which is only 10 rebounds

    The lakers better find a shooter. As a matter of fact the whole NBA needs to find shooters. Steph Curry and James Harden are the only 2 guys in the league, that when they put the ball up, you think it's in. The rest struggle to shoot 65% from the free throw line. The NBA has become athletic rather than skilled.

    Lebron needs the Lakers to trade for top 5 player, but Lakers are not responding, so will remain injured untill they get a top player or players

    Why? Why would they need to hit "panic button"? Are your ears broken? They told you at the beginning of the season, they're not in a rush. You guys want them to hit the "panic button" so you'll have something to critique. Lakers are going to be fine.

  • Evander Berrouet
