    Hello darkness, my old friend
    @THE HCP Are the Lakers still working out the kinks in their seven superstar attack?

    Dennis Schroder: 15 pts, 4 rebs, 6 ast
    Kyle Kuzma: 15 pts, 9 reb, 2 ast
    KCP: 9 pts, 4 reb, 2 ast
    Montrazel Harrell: 18 pts, 9 rebs, 2 ast
    Andre Drummond: 7 pts, 11 reb, 2 ast
    Alex Caruso: 9 pts, 3 reb, 4 ast
    Markieff Morris: 8 pts, 3 reb, 1 ast

    so, the 7 rotation guys they got rid of are averaging 76 points, 43 rebounds, & 19 assists. And KCP and Caruso were their 2 best perimeter defenders. They've replaced those guys Westbrook, Melo, Bazemore, Bradley, and Rondo....hahahahaha

    Of course, those were empty numbers in a, let me see here...oh, a win against the Bucks. Meanwhile, the Lakers are doing fine letting Russ cook.

    LOL...I don't even know who the Laker GM is but it's hard to imagine him having a worse off-season than he did. Fuck-up after fuck-up

    The Lakers GM’s name is LeBron James.

    I hear Frank Vogel went from a great coach to a worthless one in just one short season. Crazy he forgot everything in a couple months.

    That was last season, though. They kept him on hoping he'd "return to form".

    Because your coaching "Form" changes in three months.

    Are you implying that LeBron shouldn't be our new GM?

    Watching the Lakers feed of the games and constantly hearing them harp about who's not playing ... yeah, those guys coming back solves one problem but creates another.

    How many of these old NBA stars are going to quietly accept their minutes being slashed because Talen Horton Tucker needs to get action to keep them from losing by 20?

    For all this talk of a resurgent East, I think this ranking shows a truer story (TND is a PER-like stat):
    upload_2021-11-13_12-0-55.png

    This often tracks how good a team is better than current records. So: Lakers are worse than us (@THE HCP) - just - Charlotte, Memphis and Dallas are in trouble, Cleveland are surprisingly good, Wizards are not the best East team, and Bucks fans should be getting alarmed. Spurs much better than their record.

    They got sucked into the hype (like too many other teams, including Portland) and re-signed Nate McMillan……..
