    I know coach is not going to want to say what he really thinks, but you don't have to make up **** either lol. Russ has never defended at a championship level, so there really isn't anything to go back to. Good luck transforming him into an average defender, much less championship level.

    Ham went HAM for LeBron, too. Ham thinks LeBron will get back to a championship level on defense. That ain't much more delusional than thinking Westbrook will play championship-level defense. Heard him talk about getting Westbrook to sacrifice. Westbrook- and LeBron - already sacrifices wins for stats. Overall, it sounds like Ham wants a hardhat-type team. I doubt the Lakers will ever be that. Hard work ain't Hollywood.

    If the lakers go into the season with Westbrook and Lebron and they continue to play like last season or even slightly better they will implode on a whole other level this year.

    No wonder Westbrook is angry, that was over the line. You don't go after a guy's...basketball abilities. Some things are off-limits.

    Some of this just comes down to having good manners. Be more Bayless.

    The Lakers should sign John Wall to the MLE. I want to see a Wall Westbrook backcourt before they both retire.
