Be realistic with salaries and obviously fit. Go!



FYI I would take The Brow, Drummond or Jimmy. Lebron is a liability on defense.

no, they almost lost because Luke Walton said they went with the younger guys for three straight possessions so they can get comfortable.. do you even follow your own team? and Ingram has been terrible so far. They need to put Hart, Kuzma, Lonzo, McGee, and LeBron as the starters. Ingram doesn't know how what he's doing out there.

Lakers need rebounders and a big who can play big minutes. McGee has been great but he's a 24 minute guy with his asthma. They gave up 20 offensive rebounds to Minnesota unacceptable.

Ingram has been great, deadly with his middy and defense has been great just needs to learn to use his size and stop reaching. Lebron needs to be straight up and take blame for his lack luster play on D. Always saying we when it's him. I'd rather see Lance out there.

Yup. Amen to that, though not universal. That said, you know & I both know what this really stems from and that's what make this thread both hilarious and pathetic at the same time. LBJ is the best player on earth, and he's donning the purple & gold.

Absolutely right call on the third possession with 1 up and 20 secs to go where Mavs had to foul though. LeBron is brutally choking on FTs right now, I trusted Kuzma/Ingram more, even though they ended up choking as well.

for sure 100% agree. you can tell LeBron could take games over but he's trying to get others involved because he knows vs the Warriors, he can't be doing the same strategy in cleveland. The problem is these guys aren't stepping up. LeBron can't force these guys to step up. it's on them to figure things out. Time will tell but I said it from the beginning of the season, a trade will likely happen involving one of the younger pieces of talent. Luke literally said it when he said they went with the younger guys so they can experience it. I'm not a fan of Luke's lineup but I understand how difficult it can be managing all these personalities. That's on Magic a bit because KCP, Rondo, and Beasley serve no purpose on this team right now. Looking back, they should have gotten a quality backup center and some more snipers. I'm not sure why Beasley is even on this team.

11-02-2018, 06:47 PM
I hope Bron declines enough to improve Raps chance of re-signing KL. Playing witrh a declining star making 40-50 mil isn't the most appealing situation. If he shows a decline even if it's a little bit, chances are good the decline will only get worse as the years go on.

I thought there was a chance of this, but too early to tell.

It has all to do with fitting in with the personnel and matchups but when cj Mc collum lays it up in Lebrons face late in the 4th qt is frustrating and he won't take account for it personally. That is my grudge against him. He's always been like that throwing his team under the bus. Defense is a personal thing and you don't just watch players score in your face late in game's to save energy.

it would never happen because the fans would riot.. the ticket prices etc going up when they sold and so on... that being said it would be smart as ****. I personally think the lakers should keep lebron and offer up ingram/ball/kuzma and 2 firsts for AD... that is a ton but ingram and ball cant play with bron... Ingram has become a spot up shooter so far and ball started good... **** the bed the last 4 games before finally having a good performance in trash time tonight... They need an AD. I am not a fan of trading their young core but having lebron at his age and mileage they really might need to pull the trigger because i doubt KL or butler would play with/next to lebron and join in free agency.

And this post exactly what needs to be understood by anyone asking to trade the young players. Look at GSW they kept every good young player and didnt give up on any of them. Everybody was saying Steph was just a spot up shooter, Dray an undersized 4 and Klay was too un athletic now look at them.

This is why I said LeBron should have went to the Sixers and that was the team I was hoping he went to. It just made more sense. Sixers had everything in their roster. Size, length, three point shooting, defense, rebounding, scoring, youth, and two players (one can be top 15 and the other top 5 for many years). I see LeBron slowing down as it is now. He's still going to put up numbers but when he's a liability defensively and with how the league is today, averaging 28/8/8 is not the same as doing it five years ago, let alone ten. Watching him try to attack the paint, he's much slower, can't really elevate, and players aren't bouncing off of him the way it used to be. Guess it really is true. You wake up one day and bang, your body gets shot.

I don't know that it's necessarily his body keeping him from it moment to moment but more he's mentally not willing. He's still a beast when he wants to be, it's just that he doesn't want it all the time. Typically as players age they lose defensive effort, check, they reduce the frequency they attack the rim, check, they start to settle for longer and longer jump shots, check. Little nagging injuries happen more and more and the recovery takes longer and longer.

I doubt his body is "shot" just yet, but it's only a matter of time.

Facts! We seen it in Kobe he was a liability on the defenesive end. I applaud D Wade tho he has heart and can be a great example of having a will to win by any means. Since no one cares about Lebron retiring as a Laker, the smartest thing to donis trade him before the Lakers are pressured to please his demands sorry Bron you are not a Laker like the ones up on the rafters this should be Ingrams team not Bronny.

Lmao, the fact you think this is Ingram's team is weird. Have you even watched your own team play? Ingram has been a large part of their problem. LeBron tries to feed it to him every time and all it takes is for a double team to come take the ball away from Ingram because he'll turn it over. He can't shoot and isn't a good playmaker. Ingram will be traded. The plan was always to get LeBron another elite player. None on the Lakers look the part right now. Ingram was expected to be but he's the same old player who didn't bulk up or improve his shot.

Ingram can shoot and is a good playmaker but not from the post or pinchpost. That's the reason a lot of guys in the Lakers forum have been recommending he come off the bench and share ball handling duties with Rondo while the starting unit has Lebron and Ball to do that. When Ingram did the main ball handling last year while Zo was out he did pretty well. I believe he was a point guard in High School until he hit his growth spurt.

this is 100 percent correct and nobody loves ingram or wants ingram more than me but he is basically a spot up shooter for the lakers.... on top of this he isnt defending at all.. He is just letting guys blow right by him and with all that length he doesnt even try to shot block from behind or get in guys faces etc.... He has way to much talent to be used this way.

BI is a very loyal player (opposite of Lebron) since the fight which i quote him he said the reason he threw the punch was because there were 5 rocket players and only 2 of his teamates. Lebron went to grab cp3 and not his teamate. You can tell by BI body language hes very discourage and doesnt like being on the floor with lebron. The lakers were at one point the 7th beat defenese last year and now they look like the cavs from last year since lebeon joined if you watch lakers games and dont see it you must be a Lebron fan and not a Laker fan. This signing has cost the Lakers one young core player in Randle dont let it be 2 of them just to please the so called best player in the world which i believe is KD. Of you claim to be the best player in the world but only play one side of the court you are the "best" half the time.

1) Everyone thought Brandon Ingram was immature and stupid for starting a fight.
2) LeBron grabbed CP3 because CP3 is his son's godfather. CP3 wouldn't listen to anyone but LeBron or Melo out there on the court. He calmed CP3 down, period.
3) Whos fault is it Brandon Ingram is discouraged? Does he want to win or complain? The fact is, he's the one who will be traded rather than LeBron so he can be discouraged all he wants. Lakers would ship Ingram back to Duke for Zion Williamson no problem.
4) It's not just LeBron who is on the team that wasn't there last year. Half your roster has been replaced. Also, even a team like the Jazz has been going through a rough period defensively. This isn't just the Lakers. And Ingram's defense hasn't looked good either.
5) And you guys will have a chance to get KD next season.

My fcking God you are the worst Lakers fan I've ever seen here. You're just a Kobe-defender who wants to pinpoint this on LeBron when MANY believed the Lakers weren't going to be an elite team, yett. Next offseason, you have your pickings of Kawhi, KD, AD, Jimmy B, Klay, etc., and you're here complaining because your current Lakers isn't good enough to contend for a title? Try being a Minny or Suns fan instead of a whiney Lakers fan.

I'm not just a "trade LBJ" client, I'm also the president (LBJ hairline pun intended)

I was against the LBJ signing from the jump and it has nothing to do with Kobe. I think it was a money grabbing, ego stroking signing by Magic.

I believe LBJ is gonna be the reason that will deter other star/superstar free agents from going to LA. And from the what I've seen from him my before season assumptions look to be correct, he doesn't give a damn about the team or his teammates. He's set up very well for life after basketball where he wants to live and found a sucker (Magic) to pay him $35+ million a year to just show up to work. Lakers are just a 9-5 for LBJ.

Magic done pissed on all of us Lakers fans by selling this fraud to us and before LBJ leaves he will take a big dump on us.

While I don't agree with you, its only because of the timing. I still think LeBron is the best player alive. But he won't be forever, and the tail end of his career, he won't be worth the headache to play with, or coach. Not that he is a diva WR or something of that nature, but he is so demanding of his teammates/organization, and just has so much control, as he becomes a lesser player, my guess is he won't give that up, and will be a negative to his team. Now, if he rescinds control back to his coach/FO, then forget my entire post, but i don't see him go quietly into the night..

As a Laker fan, I wouldn't have wanted him long term, but I would still take my chances right now. But I am not sure what most of you expected? We told you he can't put a crappy team on his back and win 60 anymore. We told you that the Lakers youth isn't good enough. So honestly I have no idea what you guys expected. Also, its like 12 games in, plenty of time for things to settle and for the Lakers to pump out 45-48 wins, which is where I pegged them.

I'm not just a "trade LBJ" client, I'm also the president (LBJ hairline pun intended)

I was against the LBJ signing from the jump and it has nothing to do with Kobe. I think it was a money grabbing, ego stroking signing by Magic.

I believe LBJ is gonna be the reason that will deter other star/superstar free agents from going to LA. And from the what I've seen from him my before season assumptions look to be correct, he doesn't give a damn about the team or his teammates. He's set up very well for life after basketball where he wants to live and found a sucker (Magic) to pay him $35+ million a year to just show up to work. Lakers are just a 9-5 for LBJ.

Magic done pissed on all of us Lakers fans by selling this fraud to us and before LBJ leaves he will take a big dump on us.

Just my opinion....
Correct... the one that buys Lebron, also buys a coach, a GM and the army that the king wants... Team (kingdom) is dead after the king dies...

While I don't agree with you, its only because of the timing. I still think LeBron is the best player alive. But he won't be forever, and the tail end of his career, he won't be worth the headache to play with, or coach. Not that he is a diva WR or something of that nature, but he is so demanding of his teammates/organization, and just has so much control, as he becomes a lesser player, my guess is he won't give that up, and will be a negative to his team. Now, if he rescinds control back to his coach/FO, then forget my entire post, but i don't see him go quietly into the night..

As a Laker fan, I wouldn't have wanted him long term, but I would still take my chances right now. But I am not sure what most of you expected? We told you he can't put a crappy team on his back and win 60 anymore. We told you that the Lakers youth isn't good enough. So honestly I have no idea what you guys expected. Also, its like 12 games in, plenty of time for things to settle and for the Lakers to pump out 45-48 wins, which is where I pegged them.

This "crappy" Lakers teams is just as good if not better than your team. They have a better record and just beat the T-Puppys last night. Why do these fools keepnsaying Ingram started the fight when it was cp3 who put his hand in Rondos face not Ingram grabbing his hand and pushing it against rondos. These guys sound like espn posting on here punches were thrown betwee.

Yes, this Laker team sucks minus LeBron James, and he isn't carrying a team to the finals anymore by himself, those days are over. Anyone who expected the Lakers to be contenders is a biased homer or doesn't understand basketball.

Honestly lebron is a bad fit. Lakers dont need a guy to set them up and push the ball Lonzo does that already. The Lakers need lebron to be dominant and take some of the pressure off of the young guys at the end of games. Last year was the same problem. They were in most of the games but collapsed at the end of the 4th losing the games in crunch time, Lebron hasnt chamged that therefore he is better off changing the way he plays or being trafed to amother team who needs an on and off the court coach.

Yeah, I honestly think you got a LeBron who knows he doesn't need to prove anything at this point, and just wanted to be in LA due to his family being there now, ie, it has been his home, may as well make it a permanent spot. His competitiveness will come out when it needs to, but you aren't getting the 2012 LeBron dude. He is gone. But, the goal is to rope in another guy next summer. If you can do that, gravy...

That's actually not true, the Lakers average margin of defeat is historically in line with how many games they actually won, maybe 1 or 2 win difference but if the Lakers were in every game last year then you could say that about most of the league.

Jimmy Butler said Lakers looked like a great destination for him next summer until LeBron signed there. Kawhi already has Clippers and Raptors as 1a and 1b. Warriors probably stay the same keeping KD and Klay. Not many stars left for Lakers to grab. Maybe Cousins. Even though AD wants Cousins back next summer.

Iím judged for following Bron from team to team. I could never hate a player so much. ANY player that helps the team Iím going for I will love. I will never understand it.

Iím not a Laker fan, Iím a Bron fan, but I want to see the Lakers dominate and I want to see everyone on the squad ball out.

Some of the ďTeam first fansĒ kill me for following a player, but then they hate a player no matter what.

So I like a player no matter what
Meanwhile they hate a player no matter what

They are doing exactly what I do accept in the name of hate? Itís so weird.

You got Wolves fans that will hate Wiggins no matter what. They would rather see the team lose with players they donít like, rather than cheer for them even though they are winning.

I find it hypocritical to say your a team guy but then hate players on your team that are helping you win.

I also find it hypocritical to dog someone for following Lebron around because they are a fan, and then hate Lebron no matter what even when he comes to your team and makes them better.
