Gallinari is playing truly horrid b-ball.
Zubac yet to even leave the bench
Curry playing like shit
probably why they losing
Nah, they just need a C like Muscala.
Nice game Russ.
Didn't even get a triple double. He must be pissed.
Losing because they're the Clippers.
Actually, scratch that..they're losing because of a couple things..one of them being Jerry West.
Not that they would've won this series, but Tobias Harris, Mike Scott and Boban are flexing in Philly.
A close game like yesterday's could've gone the Clips' way with those guys on board, but West basically traded those 3 guys for a rookie, an overrated backup center that's getting little to no playing time, and Wilson Chandler's bum ass.
So losing because of that..and because they're the Clippers
Tooks the words right out of my mouth.
Say what you will about Durant, but he was smart enough to get off that sinking ship.
Looks like a 3rd year in a row that they're done in the 1st round and Presti just continues on unscathed..and nobody questioning that ownership group's decision to cheap out Harden
Ruh roh. Another bad play call.
Luke Walton accused of sexual assault
Kelli Tennant, a reporter who used to work for Lakers rightsholder Spectrum Sportsnet LA, is reportedly alleging that Walton assaulted her after calling her into his Santa Monica hotel room to discuss a book she was writing.
The details of what Tennant claims happened, from TMZ:
In the suit, Tennant says when she arrived at Walton's hotel, he convinced her to come up to his room so they could discuss the book. She claims when they got up to his room, Walton suddenly pinned her to the bed, placing his hips and legs over her body.
In the docs, Tennant claims Walton then began forcing kisses on her neck, face and chest. She claims she screamed for him to stop and tried to free herself, but he held her down, groped her breasts and groin, and rubbed his erection on her leg.
She says he eventually relented and let her get up from the bed, but as she was walking towards the door to leave he grabbed her from behind and again forced his body up against hers.
It should be noted that a previous version of TMZ’s report indicated the alleged assault occurred in May 2017. It was later updated to note it occurred before Walton’s Lakers tenure.
Tennant reportedly claimed she did not initially report the alleged assault and was forced to continue to interact with Walton due to her job. She said that Walton would often greet her with an aggressive hug or kiss despite her telling him the advances were unwanted.
Walton did not respond to a request for comment, according to TMZ.
maybe not the brightest coach but i have serious doubts about the veracity of that story
the fact that she sat on it for a couple of years is nonsense
...sat on it for a few years and then went straight to TMZ.
uh huh OK
Crazy how things are today with the metoo movement and social media. You literally have to prove you are innocent.
Gonna be tough for Luke to navigate this because I'm sure there is proof she went up to his room. She wouldn't have filed if there wasn't proof they interacted in this way.
and nowadays a woman can just scream assault and its up to the accused to prove they didnt or that rapist cloud just hangs over you.
She filed a lawsuit. She didn’t go to TMZ, they just found it because that’s what they do.
It’s a he said she said type of thing, there won’t be any evidence because it happened a couple years ago and she didn’t report it to police, she alleged he forcibly kissed her on the face/neck and pinned her to a bed and dry humped her. They’ll probably settle out of court and that will be that
Wouldn't shock me if it were true. As said before..Luke's been gifted a hell of a lot. Just the profile of a guy that'd strongarm the pussy. And if this was about milking a story, she comes forward around the time of her book release years ago and cashes in there + raids his pockets as well, but the book came out in 2014.
Either way, this shit is going away way faster than it would if he were still coach of the Lakers + his pro existence has been ever so charmed, so he'll win again in the long run. Life of Luke Walton.
Oh god...Lakers rumored to be interviewing Jason Kidd.
This is retread city now.
2 HC jobs since this alleged event took place. Lol He may or may not have done anything at all..still. For whatever reason this thing has sat on the shelf and it just worked out to Luke's advantage.
Dude's definitely going to win the lottery for no good reason one of these days..won't even play. Just somehow he's going to win it without even playing. He's already hit it big like 5 times.
