I am absolutely ashamed of the Lakers fans who are trashing Lebron and AD.

Denver is just a much deeper team.

AD 28 points, 18 rebounds, 2 blocks

Lebron 23 points, 12 assists, 7 rebounds


LMAO what else were they supposed to do? LMAO


LMAO

Unfortunately those are empty stats. See it all the time. In fact lg has a habit of calling out guys from other teams who put up empty stats.


I do not believe they were.

Imagine no Lebron and AD today we get blown out by 30.

Our other guys besides Austin and Rui just didn't have anything in the tank

You are literally saying take AD off the team and saying let’s see.
Bron looks old, plays old. Gets numbers because he has the green light. He’s fine but let’s not act like he not a huge reason why we are in must win so early


Lebron is clearly not healthy. An yes he's part of the blame but nothing close to how you are painting him as the villain.

Entire off season to get his foot right. No more Westbrook nonsense.

An yes I know he will make you surprised again in year 21

He will never be healthy. His first year here he led us to lottery because of foot injury (supposedly). Lots of people in denial about him. He will be healthy for first month then fall apart.

Bron as a laker
Lottery
Bubble title
1st round bounce
Lottery
TBD

Have you seen the wins post trade?
Grizz bigs were hurt as was ja, but still a win

Gsw was a mess all year and had a brutal 7 game series but still a win.

Nuggs, tbd.


You still making fun of the 2020 Championship? Even when this years conference finals pretty much destroyed all that trash talk??

Let me just cut you off really short Half and save you the trouble with your nonsense rants as I know what's coming from you I'm ten steps ahead..........


Lebron and AD are going NO WHERE.

Jeanie and Rob will lock them up as a Lakers.

No. Posters here referenced bubble because of 4 teams. It is universally known as the bubble title. Why so insecure. It counts.


NAH UH HALF!

Don't try that reverse roast on me it doesn't work bro!

You know what you did LOL
You know you the real Boo Boo The Foo! LMAO

I am literally calling it the bubble title. How am I reversing anything.

not going to let your ramble troll continue half

You know what you did with your bubble title remark.

It was another attempt to trash Lebron's tenure as a Laker.

An I just reminded you are wrong again.

One can make the case this series came down to dlo being innefective


DLO was horrible but to his credit and growth this playoffs run he had is his best one in his career thus far.

Every other playoff run he's been apart of with Brooklyn and Minny he's never shot over 40%


Agree, he has shown some growth. There were times he was super shaky early in that Memphis series and in the GS series and he bounced back. I’m not saying he hasn’t been horrible lately but there were some promising moments.


When it comes to dlo it helps to put it into some perspective...he has been universally panned as a bad playoff player before this playoff run, so when you start that way, there's only one way to go..which is up. And yes, vs Grizz and Dubs he had some really nice games. And when he is on and those 17 ppg and 6ish assists and shooting close to 40% from 3 is on, Laker team is really difficult to beat.

But he has shot under 35% overall for this series, and is 2-14 from 3, he has played like $#!^ against the Nugs, there is no other objective way to put it. I mean that sort of output from any starter you lean on for anything significant will run a ripple effect through the team.

Put another way: Our new starting lineup did well vs Grizz. The dubs played Vando off the floor (but we found a way to play Looney off at times).

The Nugs are an entirely different breed. Our fellas played none of their guys off the floor, Malone has had to make absolutely zero lineup adjustments. On the other hand, Nugs have found a way to render Vando and D'lo ineffective.

Difference in series likely right there. If the Nugs had to deal with that we'd be up 3-0.

I am saying it’s a bubble title. I pointed out that posters and national media said these are the same match ups as the bubble.

National media refers to that championship as the bubble title. I am telling you I am saying what you say I’m saying. The bubble title counts.

I don't understand why DS didn't start the game to match Murrays minutes, wouldve made him work more and maybe he doesn't have a 17pt quarter. Also, why did Reeves only get one shot attempt in the 4th quarter? He carried the offense in the 2nd quarter I don't know why they didn't look for him more in the 2nd half.

Just a armchair quarterback here but I wanted to start Schroder and Rui after game 1. Not sure if it would have changed the outcome but I felt with Lebron, AD and Reaves it gave us the best chance.

God I want us to just trade AD and get some good pieces while we can. Lebron has to take a pay cut or get sent to the d league. No questions asked and I would fire Ham and pick up Nick nurse or Budenholzer.

Because Schro is not a reliable 3rd wheel -- DLO was supposed to fill that spot.

Reaves is 3rd wheel, Rui is 4th wheel

Schro is more of a threat offensively than Vando

AD
Lebron
Rui
Reaves
Shro

That is the best line up vs Nuggets

DLO needs to just accept a bench spot and man up.
Maybe DLO getting benched will give him more motivation to deliver.

Rui has been the reason Lakers bench has outscored the Nuggets bench in every game. Rui has earned a bigger role (34 mins in game 3 is a mininmum in game 4) Others can step up and need to step up.

DLO/Lonnie/Beasley are all capable of getting HOT and shooting the lights out.

Series isn't over until a team wins 4. one game at a time and you never know.

Lakers had opportunities in all 3 games. These teams are evenly matched, I still think Lakers have a deeper team, they just need a bit more from DLO.

They need a lot more from DLO. If Nuggets keep shooting like this DLO probably needs to be scoring 20 a game on a good percentage with around 8 assists
