This team is hanging on by a thread, barely treading water. They just completed an improbable win over the Grizzlies, who are in first in the West and were winners of 11 straight games coming into Friday night. On Sunday, the Lakers completed a highly improbable comeback win over the Blazers, who are neck-and-neck with… Read More The Lakers Made a Trade!!!
Last night against the Rockets, the Lakers needed every bit of LeBron’s 48 points to secure the 140-132 win. The Rockets are a 10-34 basketball team. LeBron was a +19 and the Lakers won the game by 8. So they were outscored by 11 when he was on the bench. He was on the bench… Read More The Lakers (and the REFS) Continue to Fail LeBron James
Like probably all of you, I spent most of last night constantly refreshing Twitter for updates on the Damar Hamlin situation. I wrote about that earlier this morning. But inevitably I went looking for other sports to get my mind off the whole situation, and was able to witness the Cavs’ amazing comeback to beat… Read More The Warriors Depth is Just Too Much
He’s had enough: His numbers are great but the real telling stat is that the Lakers are +64 when he’s on the floor and -68 when he’s off over the last 9 games. So basically they squander whatever lead he’s built every time he goes to the bench–and in only 1/3 of the minutes it… Read More Has LeBron Finally Reached His Breaking Point with the Lakers Front Office?
The Lakers were up 54-43 on Dallas at halftime on Christmas Day, but then got outscored 51-21 third quarter and wound up losing 124-115. They are now 13-20 on the season. We are just about at the point where LeBron’s 20th year has officially been wasted by the most incompetent front office in professional sports,… Read More Rob Pelinka and Jeanie Buss Continue to Waste LeBron’s 20th Season
Maybe I’m biased as a certified LeBron Stan since day one, but LeBron is not worse as a player than he was, say, two or three years ago. He really isn’t. Even though he’s about to turn 38, I really don’t see much of a drop-off in his play. When he’s not playing well, it’s… Read More What Jeanie Buss and Rob Pelinka Have Done to LeBron James in Year 20 Should be Illegal
Another night, another big, fat L for the Los Angeles Lakers. They are so bad. Horrendous. Atrocious. LeBron had a great game, 30 points on 12-22 shooting before leaving late with a groin strain. No word on how long that will keep him out for, on top of his foot injury. Age 37, turning 38… Read More The Lakers Are the Most Depressing Team in Professional Sports
After making a blockbuster trade with the Utah Jazz for Donovan Mitchell, hopes were high for the Cleveland Cavs. They made it to the play-in tournament last season, ultimately losing to the more experienced Nets and Hawks to miss out on the playoffs, but with such a young and talented core, the future looked bright.… Read More The Cleveland Cavaliers Might Be For Real | The Tank for Wembanyama Race is Not Going According to Plan | The Lakers Finally Get a Win?!
Russell Westbrook sat for tonight’s game against the Nuggets due to a mysterious hamstring injury that he supposedly incurred during the preseason, but which didn’t keep him out of the first three games. Didn’t matter. The Lakers’ problems go way deeper than just Russell Westbrook. Don’t get me wrong, he still has to go, he… Read More The Lakers Have More Problems than just Russell Westbrook
Russell Westbrook may have just played his last NBA game. Seriously. If that game against the Blazers wasn’t his last, it’s close to it—he only has a few more games left before he’s benched, then traded, then bought-out, and then is no longer on an NBA roster. The Lakers lost 106-104 to the Blazers yesterday,… Read More We’re Witnessing the End of Russell Westbrook’s NBA Career
