His playmaking is off the charts. I knew his assists were up last season, but watching him, he is pretty damned good at it. Already at 4 assists tonight , had 9 last game. Very happy about that, it's something Kawhi wasn't necessarily strong at, but something we needed with our PGs hurt.

its honestly annoying and ****ed up... Embiid last year when he didnt get the calls it was because he was playing soft and i hated it meaning he would settle for shots or quick moves over bullying... so far in 3 games this year he is posting up and bullying and getting no foul calls... He was hacked insanely the other night and the announcer said he wont get that call because he is 7foot2........ that **** is stupid. It can only be a foul if you are between the height of 5 foot 9 and 6foot 7 but you cant be built like a house like lebron either lol. The foul rules

Also, donít sleep on Bam in a Hart vs Bam comparison lol. Bam is almost 3 years younger and developing nicely. He has Dwight Howard flashes from time to time and has locked down Curry and Wall on the perimeter when theyíve thought they had a mismatch. Heís going to be pretty damn good.

no, its not that, its that im called crazy for thinking Hart can be better. Neither side is wrong, but thinking Hart isn't on the same level? I find that funny tbh.

Nice clutch shot by LeBron, but this game would've been over if Rudy Gay hand't choked that wide open 3 in the corner.

You have to make those shots.

Lakers will take over and win in OT.

Lakers pace may be too quick for him. He slowed the game a lot more and since Cleveland had shooters, he simply played quarterback at the elbow and made passes. I hope it's just getting adjusted into the season but at the same time, he's 34 in two months. His biggest problem so far has been not trusting his teammates more. I felt Lonzo should have been the one pushing the ball more and Hart definitely should have been getting more touches. LeBron basically stopped the ball and took bad shots.

Bad news for Lakers:

1) Shooting sucks
2) Bad defense
3) Ingram doesn't seem comfortable out there
4) LeBron may no longer be the best player. With how the season has gone thus far, he's looked pretty poor by his standard


Good news
1) Lakers were competitive against the 2nd/3rd seed vs Houston/Portland and Spurs. Each game was close and Lakers could honestly be 3-0 if it weren't for a few bad plays. Better you lose to the better teams now so you can figure out ways to improve.
2) Revamping an entire roster takes time - especially when you're lacking shooting in today's game.
3) Lonzo's shot looks nice and he's playing very well lately.
4) Hart might be the Lakers 3rd best player and shooter - which could help them significantly in the correct lineup.
