Yeah I thought AD looked fine and was playing well until he tweaked his knee. We need a health streak.

Ok, so without panicking here, how can the Lakers improve? Obviously can’t make any big deals, what kind of things would folks do here?

Beg Wade to come out of retirement as an example...lol


1. Get a Pg any pointguard not named Rondo..Seriously anyone anything whatever as long as they ar alright on offense.

2. Superstars..healthy i dont care if we load manage bigger picture is the playoffs. You think Clippers care about losing here and there as long as Kawhi is healthy? We go as far as superstars take us.

3. Never play Rondo again and bench Mcgee. I'd seriously examine Howard at starting center. Better screens-better rebounder and defender. Play Caruso and THT a lot more. Look at the Raptors and what they are doing to get production from all their guys. They give chances to players wanting to prove something. Ronbum has nothing to prove he feels. THT,Caruso have that hunger we need to instill confidence in them. Look at all that quality productions Raptors get from their players. We can do the same if Vogel has the balls to bench Rondo.

Personally if lbj is out id rather they slot kuz as a starter to help out on offense. Caruso can also be slotted in as a guard to help with setting the offense and d.

Lakers healthy starting lineup with lbj creates issues for opponents but just slotting in rondo for lbj i think trends toward the opposite direction😐

The supporting cast isn't very good. Lebron and AD are carrying the team. Getting blown out at home by 24 when the Nuggets two best players had subpar games is evidence that the roster needs additional upgrades to win a championship.

Will be fine. Just have LeBron and AD healthy come playoff time and will be good to go. Even with this loss we still have a great record. This team will be a beast once playoffs start


Assuming everyone is healthy, including Kawhi, this team as constructed is capable of beating everyone except the Bucks and Clippers. If Kawhi is playing but not 100% they have a shot to beat the Clippers depending on how impaired he is. Hopefully a couple talented players get bought out that fulfill a need. Iggy for one. But they also need another scorer. That could be Kuzma if he can get back to where he was last year. Right now he's not even close.

That's easier said than done. If Rondo is benched he's probably going to be a detriment to team chemistry. If you bench him you might as well just cut him.

Result was expected but still disappointing to watch.

Worst part for me is I live in Denver and will be forced to listen to the insufferable local sports radio analysts rehashing the “big win” over the hated Lakers while driving around all day.

May need to be a music day.

On occasion they could but AD’s history says otherwise

Yeah, I dont think this team is very good when you take Lebron away for the simple fact we have nobody but Rondo that is capable of consistently being a ball handler and Rondo is far from consistent to say the least.

This is what happens when you gut pretty much the entire roster for two super stars. We wont win against many elite teams with one of the two main guys out because every other player on the roster is not consistent at being scoring options at least.

With both guys in there we are absolutely capable of beating any team in the regular season and playoffs though including the Bucks and Clippers.
