I am really trying to figure out why adding a guy who put up 13/6 on 50 pct shooting and 40 percent from 3 on a 1 year 3.5 million dollar deal is bad. He checks all the markers they need :shrug:

i hate some of their signings as well but they are going the route of just trying to stop the warriors... think of something like what the pistons... Nobody thought the pistons could be the lakers but they got physical and defended... For some odd reason every team has tried to run with the warriors instead of playing against them... you cant outscore or run with the warriors... the lakers did the smart thing though again i do hate some of their signings because some of their guys are horrid shooters and stupid players... this signing though is a good one.

He shoots so few threes his % is just noise. He's got a bad rep and turns the ball over a ton, but he's not a bad signing at all. In a situation he won't be asked to iso create, he could have a really good year.

being the best team in the east meant nothing that year just stop... when did i ever say they were on/near the warriors level? I said their route is the smart route to take... if you want any shot at beating a healthy warriors team you better have depth and be able to defend and the lakers fit that criteria. They arent a top 4 team in the west to me but again defense is the deciding factor for how far they go.


Also I love people that come into a thread/post and wonder why this is even a thread or worthy of a topic after posting about said topic.

But Beasley doesn't fit that model ... he's not physical and he doesn't play good D. He's a gifted offensive player though so, along with McGee, Kuzma, Ingram, and Ball, fits the model of an open running game.

After PG they filled the roster with 1 year deals to have enough space to get another all star type player next season or if one comes available later in the season they have enough guys on 1 year salaries to trade and stretch Deng to be able to afford the incoming players salary.

Seriously; he's an above-average bench guy who will roast the other team's second unit, and I'd play him as a small-ball center against the lineup of death. But they're putting together one hilarious depth chart.

I'm actually glad to see the hate for the Lakers because their expectations shouldn't be that great for this upcoming season.

Let's see where we stand at the end of the season. I got them between 48 and 50 wins and 3 to 4 seed in the playoffs.

I have a thread in the Lakers forum with my thoughts on how they get there if anyone would like to chime in.

Some Laker fans are can rub some the wrong way, however I have friends I talk to that are Celtics, Knicks, bulls , etc fans and we have cordial basketball talk.

Beasley is not a bad pickup and he will give us a solid 10 to 12 minutes a game. I think magic brought him in to replace offense in case guys are out. KCP..ingram..lonzo..Isaiah all missed time during the season. Our 1 year deals will help through out the season. Ennis is gone, so that alone helps. I will gladly take Beasley over Melo because he will know what his role will be . Melo will not improve Houston imo.

Lance..javale...beas..all one year deals. Low risk and they can always be flipped by the deadline . These guys will contribute I believe.

it has absolutely nothing to dobwith popularity. Golden State has never been a big name team outside of Oakland and after a year or two of them dominating that became the most hated team in sports.

Any team that has a lot of continued success is going to be hated on.

San Antonio 6 or so years ago was even one of the most hated teams by most fans.

Let's see how the chemistry unfolds. A lot of solid individual pieces (as a collective) that can scare teams in the playoffs, but chemistry and fit also matter. I like the experiment they are trying woith these one year deals, either way they are not beating gs, might as well experiment on counters to find a blue print to beat them.

Lakers realize it will be a multi year process and that this band of 1 year misfits wonít get it done.

thats what I see a lot on this board. I understand the trolling of rondo/lance/beas/mcgee on the same team but they arent the guys the Lakers are depending on. They are depending on as you said the younger guys. Zo/KCP/BI/Hart/Kuz to take that next step. Rondo if he cooperates can teach Zo so much about the NBA game. Lance and Beas are there to push the younger guys so they arent complacent and think they have a spot on the roster.

Beas honestly might have the biggest impact of the Rondo/Lance/Beas/Mcgee that Magic brought in on the court itself. I could see Beas playing a lot of small ball C helping spread the floor and knocking down shots. Give the bench the scoring punch they need

yeah... I think people misunderstand lakers fans perspective... you got the normal outlier idiots who are screaming chip but the more reasonable fans see 50 wins out of this team and a solid next step for most of the young guys...

I would be happy with a 4 seed and making the second round this year and then see what we can add next year.

The FO office really wants to see what these young guys can do and they feel the best way to push them is by adding solid vet rotational players...

I was very skeptical when Maginka were hired but I have been extremely pleased with the process to this point.

I think itís fair to argue the Lakers ending up anywhere between 2-8. I think youíd be wrong if you said 8 seed, but still, itís fair to argue. Baring injury to Lebron, you gotta be on crack to think that a 35 win team that just added Lebron will only win between 30-35 games the following year.

Assuming Lebron doesn't drop off yet, you could put just bench players around him and get 8th seed. An upper 3 or 4 seed isn't out of the question.

The Rockets and Thunder should be better than the Lakers, and it's possible the Jazz and Spurs are too. I'd be really surprised if the Lakers are the 3 seed.

Last seasons Cavs >>> This seasons Lakers.

They should pick up Metta World Peace again and see what Latrell Sprewell is doing.

I Watched this guy with NY last year and he seem to score at will... lol This is not the same Beasly your thinking of, I think this guy has matured his life and his game.... Lakers are gonna be a scoring machine... If their defense is what I expect, their gonna shock some people.

I don't think it's hating to say that the Lakers, while they will be much improved, won't suddenly be a great team. The West is going to be even tougher this year and every win is going to be a battle. The Lakers should make the playoffs, but it's not "hating" to think they could be a 5th seed or worse.

i disagree with this statement. I think the west has solid teams but only 1 great team, and Houston im on the fence as a "great team" right now. And let me be clear, when I say great I mean a Title contender, a team that people will be tough in the playoffs.

I was the one who said Houston could beat GSW last year and if CP3 didnt get hurt, that might of happed. Maybe not we dont know, but they were up 3 -2 and took a choke job in game 7 for the GSW to win.

I just dont know what to make of Houston loosing Ariza. They were only 7 deep in the playoffs and to lose one of those cogs hurts ALOT. You add Melo and its almost the exact opposite of Ariza. Ariza doesnt need the ball and can play D, Melo needs the ball and cant play D. I just dont know how good Houston really is, I can see them regressing

I dont see "elite teams" out west I just dont. Portland good regular season team, OKC? With the Russ problem? They will shoot themselves in the foot. Jazz are going to be solid, Pelicans dont have the wings. They are projected to start 2 of Etwan Moore, Solomon Hill, or Darius Miller. Spurs will be a 5-8 seed and then the Wolves are an offseason mess, Nuggets are so so, Clipps are so so. I dont love any of those teams and dont think there elite or that tough tbh. Maybe compared to the east but the west isnt as mighty as people think this year, they just have the juggernaut.

I could easily see the Lakers winning 45-50 games being a 3-6 seed and when it comes playoff time, they are going to be trouble to handle because of the length, athletiscm, multiple people who can score on there own or make plays, and Playoff Lebron mode. Maybe im drinking the kool aid way to much, but this team won 35 games without LeBron and got better and there youngins are going to be better. Lebron proved hes worth at least 10-15 wins based off when he left Cleveland and Miami

Just get a bunch of goons to take out their best players and win that way? I'm not saying they'll be bad or anything but it's a weird collection of talent around LeBron. I think they would have been a lot better off bringing back Lopez and Randle over some of the additions they made.

Like the West, the East has a few teams at the top, but after that the depth of the West, I think, is much better.

If we play the injury game if Iguodala didn't get hurt the Warriors would have had a good chance to beat the Rockets before CP3 got hurt.

The Rockets lost Ariza and Mbah a Moute, added Ennis and Melton ... I like the additions but I think the Rockets clearly got worse, but they are still probably the 2nd best team in the West.

In general I think you are undervaluing the talent on the western teams. We need a balanced schedule to really see which teams rank where.

I think the Warriors and Celtics are the class of the conferences, but the 2nd tier in the East is much thinner than the 2nd tier in the West, the 3rd tier has the same imbalance.

I'm looking forward to seeing how it all plays out though, no doubt.

I agree with that.

im looking at the starting 5 of each playoff team and comparing them to the Lakers, and quite frankly, they dont look as appealing as the Lakers (outside of GSW/Houston)

if you look at the "next tier" in the west

Dame/CJ/Mo/Al/Nurkic there 3 and 4 depth and talent is meh but ill give Mo and Al credit, they turned into a good 3D guys even though I wouldnt trust them in the playoffs
Russ/Roberson/PG13/Grant/Adams - The Westbrook factor come playoff time, doesnt allow the others to get and get the most out of everyone else
Rubio/Mitchell/Ingles/Crowder/Gobert - This team could honestly finish 3rd with the development of Mitchell decent bench too with Favors/O'Neale/Burks/Exum

compared to

Zo/KCP/BI/Bron/McGee - there 2 holes KCP and McGee , KCP is a good 3 D guy and McGee is athletic and a rim protector but there best 5 is probably Zo/Hart/BI/Kuz/Bron which looks lethal, all can defend except for Kuz, all can shoot except for Zo.

Lonzo/Rondo

I want to give the young guys there opportunity to grow with Bron, as well as allow Beas to go for his full potential.

Obviously you got so much depth that you will never need to play Svi at PF, but this is the kind of lineup that the Lakers are gonna need to run with GS and I like it.

the vets aren't going to be the most important difference makers Ö its the young guys being pushed by the vetsNot clueless. Just a very odd collection of players to add to a young team.

I never mentioned anything about the Lakers young players. Out of that group I think Ingram and Ball are probably the best bets to contribute anything. Kuzma I'm not sold on what type of player he will be. Can't speak to the rest of the young players.

All this assumes LeBron will have the patience to actually put up with their growing pains. I'm not convinced he'll give up a year of his remaining elite level play to babysit 22 year olds. I think there's gonna come a point near midseason where the veterans will start to play more/young guys get traded for something. That's how LeBron rolls.

I don't think bron is ring chasing right now, hence why he's oK with a bunch of young guys and old misfits.

I think bron wants a break tbh, last season he worked overtime for Cleveland, he probably wants to start to give basketball more of a backseat and start to focus on his new life in L.A. Focusing on the entertainment industry.

I also think his minutes go down significantly this year. if this was any other season with bron he would be demanding his team trade the young guys for veteran studs, but lakers didn't do that despite having the assets, that tells you a lot.

He takes so few it's literally just noise. He took 86 last year and 43 the year before. The % doesn't matter at those numbers. The last time he took over 100, he shot 31%. He's 35% for his career. Those numbers mean a lot more than the 39.5% he put up last season. NOT STATISTICALLY SIGNIFICANT.

Zo/Hart/BI/Kuz/Bron would be an interesting matchup against the Hamptons 5 with Zo v Curry, Hart v Klay, BI v Iguodala, Kuz v KD, and Bron v Green. Of course if Cousins is playing the game changes again with Curry/Klay/KD/Green/Cousins.

I like the young talent on the Lakers, but I think fans are a bit optimistic about what they are "going to do". They have a long way to go and history suggests LeBron's presence doesn't result in young players developing. And while he says he wants to change I'll believe it when I see it, and while the team says they won't trade their future away to win now I'll believe that when I see it too. Either way it's going to be very interesting watching the NBA this coming year.

He's going to start to pump the breaks on basketball, try to save himself a bit, and if the team doesn't do well enough, people will blame the young players and the misfits.

Bron gets the most out of these types of players usually, I think it's a good Signing for the lakers, I think they got a solid mix of players on that roster, vets and youth, defensive minded and offensive minded, will be better than expected I think.

A lot of people think that Lebron/Lakers are already accepting defeat. From day one, they are trying to win. They rate there talent higher than most non laker fans and they are going to try and win as is. As soon as that becomes apparently impossible, they will upgrade, but they are going to see if they can shock the world as is. They may not have the stars, but they matchup well with GS

I feel like some Lakers fans are in for huge disappointment this year. Lakers arenít that good and give Lebron/Magic truth syrum and theyíd admit it. Reality is that thereís no quick fix to beat GS whonslowly built an elite roster and the. Lured a superstar who happened to have no balls or competitiveness. Lakers realize it will be a multi year process and that this band of 1 year misfits wonít get it done. Theyíre just biding time to get real pieces, not actually expecting this team to be particulary good lol

People always say that wherever Lebron changes teams and then itís always the same result

Truth is GSW has some problems. For one the league giving Durant the finals MVP was brutal for Steph. He might easily have 3 titles and two final mvps but instrad they brought Durant and everybody tries to give Durant the credit, even though Durant can be weak sometimes and steph is the guy who wont let them lose

Also losing mcgee and pachulia is something too. Gaining Cousins is not a plus, and best case scenario is he sits all year, cause if he plays heíll be a distraction

Durant is already flirting with LA, shades of OKC, and Klay and Draymond are retradedly overrated.
GSW at full strength really struggled against houston. I mean I knew gsw would win because cp3 and harden always find a way to lose in the playoffs, but gsw clearly looked beatable ó without any insane refereeing either

Basically 100% of the GSW magic is Steph Curry. I dont know how people still overlook that. I mean Durant is a great player but Steph is really the gamechanger who could rewrite the record book and take on every superstar including Lebron. It really begins and ends with Steph, everything else that gets credit like their awesome front office, organization, their ďhigh character super smart coachĒ and his amazing system, the unstoppable Durant, the greatest shooter Klay, the irreplaceable Draymind etc etc, all these guys are really just drafting off of Curry. Curry is the one truly great piece on that team, a player so great that the media struggles with the reality of it.

There are exactly two super heros or super villains in the NBA. Lebron and Curry. Period.

Now I dont know whats gonna happen, but Lebron didnt come to the western confernce unless he thought he was ready to challenge Curry and had a chance. I think on a 3rd try Lebron knows wjat he needs to optimize a team.

And think about it, Rondo a possible max player two years ago, kcp was a possible max player, stephenson was one of the engines on Indiana, and beasley can be absurdly good if motivated and feels right. Mcgee has untapped athleicism and can be unleashed

The young core is mostly *meh* lets be honest. Ingram might be a real #1 option on this team, Kuzma maybe but could be fools gold.

Hart, Moritz SVI good spot up shooters. Zubac is sliw and immobile. Lonzo I dont even see how he makes the team its going to be very strange to see

Rondo is very capable of bringing the ball up and running the offense, getting the ball into Lebron's hands, and can play solid defense even against a Steph Curry or James Harden.

Kuzma, Ingram, Stephenson and Beasley is a pretty solid frontcourt crew, even not factoring in Lebron, and in a position-less lineup scenario Ingram is capable of playing point guard and shooting guard. If Kuzma and Ingram get significantly better playing with Lebron, this is a legit crew.

KCP is a decent guard/swing player, and his shooting might be better next season. Hart is a good spot up shooter from 3 and is a good defender. Moritz and SVI might be useful for some minutes as spot up shooters if they are good in the offense. Deng might be re-born after a year of licking his wounds and healing up, and might be capable of getting motivated by Lebron, in which case he is a good backup PF

I like what the lakers are doing, the west is WAY better than the east by far, no doubt about it, but it's still overrated. there is a lot of great players. But only a few really good teams, they can push for a high seed with this roster imo.

The biggest question mark to me is rondo and Lonzo on the same team, Lonzo has almost no purpose there with rondo. Won't be surprised if rondo cracks Lonzo in the eye either.

But I quite like the mix of veteran misfit players, and young talent they have, They should have a deep roster, and a lot of versatility, and will def be a defense oriented team.

Still think not getting another star was incredibly stupid though.

Youre absolutely right

It wasnít just like one of those right angle leg fractures, it was like a total ankle sprain that rotated the foot around 200 degrees and off to the side

Ummmm. This is via the Celtics. :laugh2:


Last night Celtics forward Gordon Hayward underwent successful bony and ligamentous stabilization surgery for the fracture dislocation of his left ankle sustained on Opening Night. The surgery was performed by Drs. Mark Slovenkai and Brian McKeon at New England Baptist Hospital, assisted by Dr. Anthony Schena, following consultations with Dr. David Porter of Methodist Sports Medicine in Indianapolis. No timetable has been set for Haywardís return, but he is expected to make a full recovery.

Nice try though.

It was a clean break. You really donít know your stuff lol. Thereís ignorance and then thereís what youíre doing. Love it.

Many doctors gave him a chance to return LAST season.


According to orthopedic surgeon and medical consultant Dr. David Chao, Hayward could return late this season but will not ďbe himself until next season.Ē The former head team physician of the Los Angeles Chargers added that the accelerated outcome is ďgoing to be hard, but not impossible.Ē

Another orthopedic surgeon, Dr. Fred Cushner, shared on Sirius XM NBA Radio, that he also believes an expedited return is possible. Cushner explained that his stance is contingent upon whether Hayward will be in suitable ďgame shape,Ē as he does not think ďthe issue will be the bone.Ē

and I mean the mood inside the arena (on television) was incredibly somber, even after the first couple commercial breaks you could hear a pin drop, just complete silence throughout Boston Garden. So I mean I was getting into the like serious tragedy of the situation, but then when I saw the replay I was like "uh oh" and trying to keep looking serious because I don't want my friends to think I'm some kind of ghoul. But after watching the replay like 4 times I couldn't help it I actually laughed soda out of my nose. The whole play was so stupid, the dude leaps through the air like Peter Pan, completely extended and going for it like it's game 7 of the Finals and then just gets snapped off instantly

it was actually worse, however it reminded me of when RGIII snapped his ankle on that one play... it was like the first game of his comeback, one of the first plays if not the first play, and he scrambles around 30 yards in every direction, waits for the defenders to close on him, then sprints toward the sideline at full speed, leaps in the air and completes the pass 20 yards down field, comes down and snaps his ankle off. Oh no, how could this happen

.

yeah dude "clean break" means something good in a certain context. It refers to when only the calcium or bone has snapped and it isn't a compound fracture or a splintering crazy spiral fracture or some kind of horrific **** like that

it doesn't mean like "oh, his leg cleanly broke away from his entire body and we were able to but it in a jar and reattach it later at the hospital." I mean like Marie Antoinette's head had a clean break from her body. That's something different

And actually, I had thought that it was maybe like primarily a fracture, like the paul george thing, and he'd be on a straight line trajectory for recovery. But yeah... the report from the celtics medical staff you posted makes it sound much worse, there is this very cagey and ambiguous language about "ligamentary stabilization" and "fracture plus dislocation" or whatever, which makes me think this actually isn't a paul george type situation but could be any number of possibly really bad ligament and tendon traumas, as well as broken bones and things ripped off the bone etc.

I mean it sounds like he'll recover in time, I'm not saying that the Celtics just got completely boned here and that they're prize free agent acquisition is just done after like 3 minutes at boston garden. I mean he'll be back. It's possible he might gain like 100 lbs and become more like one of those big immobile defensive intimidator Martin Gortat or Dennis Pachulia kind of dudes that can't really "run the court" or "jump" but are capable of waving their arms and clogging the lane, hitting some spot up threes.

No, clean break was good in this context as it always is. They snapped it right back on the court.

All this trash youíre saying about Hayward is false considering the videos weíve seen. The skills are still there, heís in good shape. Heíll lose some athleticism likely but still be a really good player.
A Physical Therapist here, to correct the perception to which you are adamant on convincing the general public that it was a clean break and they snapped it back together on the court is correct. It had to be done only to reduce any further damage to the structure during the transferring process. Thatís it.
The area of the break is way way more complexed than letís say PG13s break. The Celtics doctors shared what was necessary to the general public to give hope to the nba fans and players alike. There is severe nerve, muscle, bone, ligament and tendon damage to the area that requires more than one or two surgical procedures I assure you.
To keep it short, he will get a full bill of health from physicians but 100% as he was prior to the injury given the severity and stature of a man that is 6í6Ē 220 pounds is 99.9% impossible.

Your post is filled with so many errors and speculation I hope everyone ignores it.

I wouldn't even want my worst enemy to visit a PT as illiterate as you appear to be.

They have the most potential all right. But unfortunately they have the most potential to open a medical marijuana dispensary rather than to make the NBA finals.

Who in the NBA dont Smoke marijuana, KD? You only call them smoke head because you found out but you would be surprise to find out how many guys in the league smoke. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3s1PJbrUPEo Now if you said they had a drinking, crack, cocaine, heroine problem then you would have a point.

Lets all just hope he gets back on the court and plays good, that would be a good story. I never really watched hayward in utah but it seems like he could be good, heís not just a pr image signing

Luckily we're well covered at the forward spot. There is a doomsday scenario where Kyrie bolts and Hayward isn't the same guy anymore.

I'm not particularly worried. Danny knows what to do if Hayward isn't looking right.

This is bull. I've never, at any point after the injury or during Hayward's rehab seen any of this verified. Never even heard this mentioned other than by you. Conjecture and speculation, nothing more.
Post less.

This Lakers team is hard to project. I've heard 2nd or 3rd in west and conference final projection, and I've heard the 7 or 8th spot (maybe even missing playoffs) 1st rd loss projections. In reality I believe it lies in the middle, 5 or 6 spot as it will take a minute to get everything together, and a dangerous team in the playoffs, 2nd rd or semifinal loss is were I see this Lakers team most likely ending up!

Don't think this is a conference finals team, bc they'd have to go through a stacked team to get there, but semis isn't out of the question at all. It's the power of Lebron.

Yeah, they are difficult to project. Assuming they're still behind GSW and HOU in the West, they're right "around" a number of other teams. May be better...or may be worse...than Portland, Utah, New Orleans, OKC, Denver, maybe even San Antonio and Minnesota if they get their act together. IMO, in terms of talent and potential, these teams are all right around each other. Conceivably, the Lakers could finish anywhere from 3rd to out of the playoffs.
Lot of new pieces and it will likely take time to gel but if I were to guess, I'd say they finish 4th or 5th.

I tot agree, that's where I'm leaning is the semifinal for this Lakers team, the Lebron factor. Also the young core we have is going to be good, but this will be their 1st playoff run, so I think we will have to turn to the vet's a lot in critical moments in the playoffs. I know us lakers fan's might overrate the young core at time's, but most people on here seem to underrate this young core we have as well! This will be a good year, but next year if we can add a max guy, and the young guys get some playoff experience is when I see us becoming a real title contender!
