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
The Lakers just lost their second game in as many tries to begin this 2023 NBA season, this time to the Clippers by a score of 103-97. It was actually a tight game at times, but there were also stretches when the Lakers would fall behind 15+ and have to storm back in order to… Read More What Is The Plan For the Los Angeles Lakers?
Somebody from the Warriors organization leaked it to TMZ: There’s no audio, so we don’t know what Jordan Poole said to Draymond to get under his skin. But you have to imagine there was some jawing going on between the two. Draymond then walks over to Poole, gets right in his face, then Poole shoves… Read More Video of Draymond Green Punching Jordan Poole in the Face Leaked
The latest on Kyrie from Shams Charania, via Lakers Nation because Athletic articles are behind a paywall: Right off the bat, I’m suspicious of this story. So let me get this straight: the Nets love Kyrie now? After they wouldn’t offer him a max contract without first loading it up with caveats and incentives? I… Read More Kyrie Staying in Brooklyn? Lakers Moving on to Hield and Turner?
This video is very well made and exposes Woj for what he is: a PR mouthpiece for his friends around the league. And a first-rate LeBron hater. I never knew about all his Yahoo columns about LeBron from the 2000s. Wow. Woj might be a bigger LeBron hater than Skip and Screamin’ A Smith. I… Read More Woj Is a Snake
It’s becoming increasingly clear that the Nets’ preference right now is to simply run it back with the roster they have. This is why there haven’t been any trades despite KD requesting out in early July. This is the reason the Nets don’t like any of the offers that have been made for both KD… Read More The Nets Are in Denial
It took about two weeks for LeBron to sign the extension he was eligible to sign starting August 4: This jibes with a lot of what we’ve been seeing lately: that LeBron is very happy where he is, he’s on good terms with the Lakers front office, and he wants to remain a Laker. I… Read More LeBron Signs 2 year, $97 million Extension with LA Lakers; Russ Trade Imminent?
