    It's unfortunate but JG has no bag. Sad to see from our #2 pick.

    I wonder how they find these people at basketball games that have never touched a ball in their life, who are somehow willing to shoot in front of thousands of people

    It’s just not right, good people like Daniel payed hard earned money to watch the Lakers face a real team.

    **** it.

    I didn’t want to be this bad again but might as well dream of getting a generational talent if we’re gonna suck ass.

    I’m just about at that point too. There’s nothing good coming from this as far as I can tell. Maybe it’s still too early with all these young guys, but it’s hard to see anything positive right now. It’s tough being patient when they look this clueless in every facet of the game.

    It's too late to fire Silas now. His mission will change back to tanking for the worst team this year. Fire him at the start of next year after we get Chet or Paolo

    I mean that's essentially what our whole offense is. How many times did Wood iso and drive into 4 people and get stripped and complained.

    There’s no connective tissue in the starting lineup. We’ve got three guys who all go hero ball and aren’t that efficient and then two non spacers. I kind of wish they’d scrap trying to play defense and go all in on spacing and pace around the backcourt to see if it helped with driving lanes.

    Some positives are Green just deciding to blow by people and get fouls. This will help keep his efficiency high when his shot isn’t falling. I’m hoping the next step in the process for him is to catch off the move and go. Stop hesitating and waiting for the screen and just be decisive. Seems he’s at his best then

    KPJ isn’t a PG he doesn’t set the tempo and dribbles the air out of the ball. Multiple times where KPJ had a chance to get us in our sets faster when a laker was behind the play but he doesn’t take advantage of it. Aside from that his finishing has been nowhere near as good as last year. Wondering if it’s cause our spacing is ass with two bigs?

    I'd rather see Jalen handle the ball every possession if Silas isn't going to run an offense.

    Instead we just got him sitting in the corner every possession doing nothing.

    Jalen is bricking wide open 3s, getting clean picked when he handles the ball, what exactly do you want Silas to do?

    On the other hand, the only semblance of offense flowing is when Sengun is in the game, Silas is not going to last for long if he doesn’t make this simple change.

    People who were on the trade Wood train were ahead of the curve.

    I apologize for not acknowledging your foresight.

    I would like to see more Sengun and Garuba in 2nd half.

    KPJ is trying to be Harden, he isn't remotely close to being talented enough to do that. Frankly nobody who isn't Harden is, so they should just ****ing stop trying. Bring back John ****ing Wall already.

    We really paying Wall 40mil/year to enjoy smoothies on the sidelines.

    Dude's living the life. Getting paid 40mil to watch us get torched nearly every game.

    Jalen green can't dribble though. He's better if he only dribbles once or twice on a straight line drive

    I think Jalen should just drive to the hoop before the defense is set. He got freethrows every time he did that

    I've actually seen more at the playground, and I'm not even joking. We need to try someone else at the point, if there's no plays at least they'd be able to run a simple pick and roll and try to do SOMETHING that looks like basketball.

    “Young teams are bad”

    Lazy take. Most of our young guys don’t even play lmao. Garuba, Jaygup, Armoni, and KJ get no minutes.

    Even the vet lineup of DJ, EG, Nwaba, and Wood we throw out there looks garbage. And they were all here last year!

    95% of people on here are in agreement but if you don’t see it at this point, it’s because you don’t want to.
