    Give Caruso more time. Not sure why Rondo is still on this team.

    Lou with that meaningless 3 pointer at the end of the game. Overrated ass did nothin. 7 points on 3-11 FG in 28 minutes. Better yet - 4 points. That unguarded 3 pointer at the end doesn't count for shit. Avery Bradley bustin him up Lol

    Rondo actually played well in the 2nd half. If Caruso had more true PG skills and the confidence to try some of stuff Rondo tries, he'd probably get those minutes, but Caruso stays in his role and they're probably trying to make sure he gets through this season, as well. Caruso's 1st 82 game slate.

    Waiters has the confidence - some would call it irrational confidence, but it's there. If Waiters gets it in gear, Lakers are winning this shit. Waiters can be every bit the player that Lou Williams is if he's focused. Lou averaging just 1 bucket more than Waiters in about the same minutes per contest - basically the same %'s.

    Difference is of course, Lou is mature and a pro and Waiters is struggling with that. But we don't want Waiters to be too much Lou - because in a playoff setting - Lou has been easy to handle. Why? He's Harden-lite. When the refs aren't calling a bunch of BS fouls - which they generally try not to do in the playoffs - guys that rely on the refs become less potent. Guys like Harden and Lou. They need ref assistance and the randomness of the NBA reg-season schedule to be at their best. Lou goes left - you know the jumpshot is coming. He goes right - he's going to the basket. Easy shit to clamp down on in a 4-7 game series where you're playing the guy over and over

    Clippers don't want this game. Guess they're happy to be up 2-1 on the Lakers for the season. I know the Clippers don't like early 12:30 pst games but this is embarrassing. Just didn't show up.

    They’re a midget team that shoots 3s and hope to get fouled. Am I missing something?

    Chicago vice lord. Gang guy thinks he can just be as extra as he wants and that guys won't do anything about it because he's got a gang behind him. Same thing Garnett had going on during his career and why he was always barking. Also a CHI vice lord.

    Aside from that, probably personal for Beverley, as well. Lakers traded Beverley to Miami back when LeBron 1st arrived there and Miami cut him. Ultimately, Beverley's corny. Durant shit on him so bad last year in the playoffs. Lol " I'm Kevin Durant. You know who I am. " And then proceeded to put Beverley in his place

    Dwayne Wade said, " look..I've played in the playoffs quite a bit. If you can't rebound, you can't win. "

    Was a pretty scary fall the other day.

    Maybe Brook Lopez will step up? What am I saying, Lopez has been extra-trash this season. Signing him to that contract was ridiculous before the ink was dry. 4yrs/$52M just one year after signing him for $3M. Smh It's not even like he was good in the playoffs or anything. Played some solid defense, but they could've signed Dwight or Javale for that..and for less than $52M

    Bucks lose to Denver, pick up their 3rd loss in a row. Their next game: VS current 3-seed Boston
    Lakers now just 1 game behind the Bucks in the loss column
    Denver hot on the Clips' ass for the 2 seed and Utah right behind
    Rockets a just couple L's away from the 7 seed..at one point it looked like the Rockets and Clips could meet in a 4-5 matchup, but maybe it'll be 2-7 instead?

    Why I think Bradley can be unleashed as a second unit killer with Dion and him feeding Kuzma or getting buckets.

    But unfortunately Bradley is not tall enough to be there at the end of the game when the other team has a taller shooting guard.
    They will just win the game by shooting over him.
    Release Dudley and sign JR Smith who can be the other guard at the end of a game when the other team has two tall guards.

    Green and Smith can pickup the backcourt leaving LeBron free to roam.
    LeBron choked twice at the end of the game by not finishing the first shot and giving up the last layup searching for the assist that would get him the triple double to win the game.

    PG: LeBron, Dion/Rondo
    SG: Green, Caruso
    SF: Smith, KCP/Bradley
    PF: Morris, Kuzma
    C : Davis, Dwight/Javale

    First team is a spread offense for LeBron and AD with 3 shooters around them that are experienced veteran role players who know how to defend their position and help cover the superstars man. This would be a very balanced lineup with little weakness in the modern NBA. Only weakness is against small fast point guards. You can bring Dion as the starting PG and move LeBron to SF in those situations.

    The second team is set up for Dion and Kuzma as wings to attack the basket with Dwight or Javale doing dirty work plus 2 guards for support in a 3 guard run n gun offense.
