    Shooters of those era will miss playing in this era. Mark Price, Larry Bird.. It makes you think how good Stephen Curry would had played in the older era where 3 point FGs attempts were a lot lower . Curry just passed Reggie Miller in all time 3 point shots made. The game is now tailored made for shooters. It's not a knock on Curry, he is one of the best or best pure shooters ever.

    Agree 100%. This team will not kill themselves to win a game in the regular season. Most teams/players main goal is to win each and every game. This Laker team, and especially Lebronís main goal is 1. Stay healthy 2. Improve there team chemistry. While Kawhi and PG play hero ball to win games, Bron is trying to make sure guys like Caruso/Kuz/Trez/KCP etc are improving every game.

    Aka, Lakers are playing chess and the Clippers and everyone else are playing checkers during the regular season.

    While clippers role players stay average, our role players improve. Then when the playoffs role around Bron/AD will be giving 110% with a well oiled machine behind them, and the Clippers will be used to watching PG and KL play hero ball and they wonít know what to do when they have bad games...like last year.

    Something Lavar still hasnít figured out with his checkers mindset. Itís adorable though.

    It could be a lot things. But, Flippers and the rest of the teams are always hŪper by THE MEDIA and a zillions of haters. We got the ring and our team even got better, so f them and wait for the play offs. Then if an if this phenomenal teams beat us then they have many rings to collect before they could even be named among our glorious team. We are in the longest road trip after winning the rock. The NBA sent us before any freaking team to fight like that. We say f and Lakers are in first place with tons ways to continue to get even better. Some idiots keep on bringing this foolish ďcontroversyĒ.
    Lebron is the one!

    Its hard to say its complicated and not easy just looking at stats because everything changes and you really not sure how it would translate playing in a faster pace. I do think he would still be a top shooter but not sure he would be any better than Curry. Curry takes and make long 3s can create just as well if not better and lead one of the best offense that dominated the league for a short while playing against smaller more athletic teams. No knock on Price because he was a gifted shooter one of the best to ever set foot in the league but it will still be hard for him to be better than the quirky Kyrie.

    Look at it this way Joel is a top center in the League playing against smaller teams and put up great numbers. thinking logical you would think 76ers would dominate but they dont. Reality he might have played better when teams had traditional centers. Its like saying what if Hakeem played in this era.

    Well its not the media its the teams record and players performance. Clippers pretty much lost to themselves. Its not from a lack of talent. So you can under estimate a team and not rise to the challenge while taking a team like the Lakers more serious. I am not saying they can beat us just saying its not good to under estimate. Clippers, Nets if they round out the team have the talent level but mentally may not. In a 7 game series anything can happen like say PG13 log out or Davis bad foot.

    We also didnít see either of those teams In the playoffs either.


    But Iím confident that if we see either or both, we would win in a 7-game series.
