    I agree that we are below the Warriors and about tied with Boston but LA better than us? Lol. I wonder if when we finally make moves if he changes his tone but he probably won't.

    Serious question, not trying to be a jerk.

    Why do you care what Colin Cowherd thinks of us?

    Right, this is the same guy who ranked Ben Simmons as the 5th best player in the NBA.

    Hypocritical reporting at it's finest... check him out after the first month of the season and he's singing a different tune.

    This guy is a joke... he was the biggest Harden bandwagoner last year when Russel was the popular choice, but now he "zigs" to try to keep his joke show's ratings up. If FoxSports is trying to be an ESPN killer, they're doing a pathetic job at it - go ahead and "poach" more of ESPN's bottom talent, its working out great so far.

    In the past two seasons, the Warriors have swept five playoff series, lost just one game in three series, and been taken over one game exactly once... you know when the Rockets took the Warriors to seven and barely lost on the backs of CP3's hamstring and blatant referee bias. No team has come CLOSE to competing with Golden State except for Houston.

    I don't think the Lakers will even have home court advantage in the first round.

    Cowherd, Bayless & Joe Buck all have the same generic Dallas steakhouse vibe. They dress, act and carry themselves like they're from Dallas.

    You are wrong.

    You need to be a jerk to stop moronic craps.

    Cowturd is a west coast guy and that's the audience he looks to appeal to. Who cares.

    You have to understand the whole conversation and his logic before throwing his opinion out the window.

    I don't agree with him but he does have a point, specially with our current situation. We lost both 3-D at the forward position and our best replacement is Melo. Our Center position is rocky, sure we will have CC back but will he be happy? What if he leave next summer? Are u sure we can get another player as same or better than CC or not overpay him? The FA will be flooded but do teams with cap space. We have no cap space with Ryno harden and CP3.

    Lakers are better intently with Lebron and he can compete with anyone in the west outside of Warriors.

    I love this. The last time we were hyped up was when we acquired Ty Lawson in the summer and we all know how that season unfolded. Since then?

    Lose Howard and got D’antoni, Ryno and EG. The narrative: we are an eighth seed at best, OKC is better than us, Westbrook is better than Harden. And we end up being a top 4 team in the league.

    Next season. We add Chris Paul. Narrative: Harden and Paul can’t play together. Rockets and Paul are the biggest losers from the whole Melo going to OKC. Still can’t compete. And we end up pretty much a game away from a championship.

    So now what? I mean yeah at some point the idiots in the media will be right about our downfall. But why believe them now?

    Any team with Chris Paul and James Harden is instantly better than any team with just LeBron.
