    Guys, if you haven't caught on....take a moment to understand this.

    FS1 (located in Los Angeles) is ALL-IN on PUSHING the LAKERS. Cowherd, McIntyre, the whole group. Everything is via a Lakers prism. Pandering to their audience. Everything will be LeBron and the Lakers. Every move (and non-move) the Lakers make is brilliant and by design.

    Just understand that and move along.

    The Lakers are better? With whom? Ball and Kuzma? Magee and Rondo? Blow it out you a$$! Lebron and the Lakers as they are currently constructed, are not a top 4 team in the west.

    I can't even see the Lakers making the playoffs in the west right now.

    But I can also see a scenario where the Rockets don't make it either.

    It's expected. A lot of the media is pro LA and so they'll automatically put lbj/lakers up there no matter who is on his team.

    You mean the same clowns who swore that Paul and Harden were to selfish to workout together and that they would be lucky to make the playoffs. You mean those cornballs?

    I saw that when it first came out and had to look away a few times while watching because It was so bad on Collin's part. His argument was just ridiculous and embarrassing.

    Didn't Cowturd guarantee the Dodgers would win the WS in 2017? Damn....I guess they will repeat this year too. Oh, wait.....

    Typical LA media biased agenda.

    Not that it matters what position we are at the beginning of offseason... theres only one winner at the very end. As long as we avoid brothers and foster I like our chances.

    I REALLY wish they guys would be held accountable to their positions they previously took. This SAME guy predicted just last season that the Rockets wouldn't be good at all. He clearly stated Harden & Paul wouldn't work and basically the Rockets would fail miserably. Now that the Rockets ended up one game short of a title (Cleveland had no chance) and proved almost everybody wrong, NOW this same guy's back telling everybody how our run (that he said would never happen) is over. Is anybody in the media going to call him out on his previous idiotic positions?

    Every day, Colin Cowherd writes a cartoonish screed, puts on heavy makeup, and reads from a script. He is a marketer, not an analyst. Ignore him.

    Well it just depends on what else we are doing this summer but.

    We currently have 0 sfs, 0 centers on the roster.

    So let’s say hypothetically.
    We get Melo and he ruins chemistry and pouts, and we bench him.. who’s playing in his place?

    What if Chris Paul suffers an injury like he does every year? Who’s our backup PG? Do we trust MCW?

    What if Capela is soo mad at mamagement he’s not running as hard. Or what if he gets hurt? Who’s our backup C?

    Last year we had depth, this year we are 1 or 2 injuries away from the lottery.

    Lebron and playoff Rondo :)

    Until Capela re-signs (yeah yeah I know it's inevitable), the Rockets have two starting spots to fill from the team that almost made it last year. Their bench isn't that deep with behind Gordon. So as of 7/11/18 at 2:00 PM, the Lakers have a better roster than the Rockets.
