"I been tellin ya"
There has got to be a way i can change my prediction to 42-40 just so i can say i didn't have the same prediction as a Lakers fan?
I really should have read through the thread and figured that out before making that uninformed decision.
Really not a very good game for the Blazers....and yet they dominated the hapless Lakers. When you can shoot THAT poorly and still stomp the Piss out of the Purple,
.....that is a good win.
I have not seen the Lakers play till last night and with Lebron and AD out, I guess I still haven't seen the Lakers play
but it sure looks to me like the Lakers made a miscalculation. They decided, apparently, that 3 elite talents would be the ticket to another championship. But there were two problems with their calculation: one is that 3 elite talents can win a championship, but not 3 alpha-dogs. Getting the fit right in that kennel might be impossible
the other error is that you still need a supporting cast and the Lakers gutted their supporting cast in order to land Westbrook. KCP, Kuzma, and Harrell are averaging 42 points and 23 rebounds on great efficiency. That's a lot of supporting cast production missing from the Lakers
looks like a pretty stupid trade at this point
Look ye upon the future of Ben Simmons.
Because cj is known to play like shit way more consistently than Dame and Dame has every reason to be given the benefit of the doubt because it's common sense?
You rang FAMS!?!?
Fuck the Lakers
Yup the role players still matter even with three elite talents. Also a big problem is the Lakers only have two elite talents.
Man. This is great marketing move. I only watch Blazers, even in the playoffs.
Bron, Melo, Westbrook? This year I will watch Blazers and Lakers. Their playoffs will be like Hollywood movie. Up and downs and shit.
I don't think anyone in LA is stupid
Not to mention Caruso. They not only gutted their depth, they gutted their defense--which was their strong point the last two years.
That's a nice shot. I'm happy he's hugging Ant and being a role model.
I feel really good about Melo being an ex-Blazer.
I like him even more as a Laker.
