We live in an NBA world where Boogie was "honored" by the Kings in his return to Sacramento. :pissedkobe:

Not sure you agree but getting rid of Russell was a great thing IMO. I don't think he would've mesh well with Lonzo.


I agree. Many, Many, MANY Lakers fans don't though. We'll never know.
I LOVE BASKETBALL! GO LAKERS! #17 COMIN' UP STRONG!!! TOO EASY, JUST WAAAAY TOO EASY!!!!! NEXT! :rollyellow:

We were able to get rid of Mozgov's contract and got Lopez + I don't think Lonzo and Russ would've been able play together. I am liking our chemistry right now and don't have one negative thing to say about any of our players. I had concerns about Randle but after the Washington game, he showed me has major game.

Yeah this was my favorite Championship out of all them. 1985 was awesome because we finally beat the pukes, 87 as well but 88 was for history and legacies. That was a Repeat which no team had done in 20 years. 2002 was special too because that was a 3Peat. + we beat the Queens :roflmao:

"Golden State Warriors coach Steve Kerr apologized for the profane language he directed at an official during Thursday's victory over the San Antonio Spurs. Cameras caught Kerr roaming the sideline when he uttered, "F--- you, m-----f-----."

"I need to do better. Honestly, I need to do better," he said. "That was embarrassing. My daughter sent me the meme of it. It was all over the internet."

"It definitely hurts," Deng told ESPN on Monday after the Lakers' practiced. "But the only answer for me now is to prove myself away from L.A. I'm not asked to play, I'm not in the rotation, so I can't prove myself here."

Great honest hard working guy. It's time for him to part ways from the Lakers "team", soon. Hopefully he starts his own business.

Why should he apologize? It's freedom of speech isn't it? Not like he threatened the guy. Name calling is what people do now days toward people they don't like :roflmao: Freedom of Speech for all :kingclaphands: :standingO: :fanshithit: :joke:

Ranking for the best Rookies player until the moment:

1- Simmons (Philadelphia 76ers)
2-Jayson Taitum (Boston Celtics)
3. Kyle Kuzma (Los Angeles Lakers)
4. De Aron Fox (Sacramento Kings)
5. Laurie Marcanin (Chicago Bulls) Is that how his name spelled?

I'll just leave this here!!

I agree that Simmons is the clear leader, BUT Lonzo Ball isn't getting the love he should be getting simply based on scoring numbers, which is ridiculous considering that he is doing a phenomenal job LEADING a very young team. Lauro Markkanen is a nice surprise for the Bulls, but I would not put him above Lonzo Ball.

As for #3 pick Tatum vs. #27 pick Kuzma, they are statistically similar, so I would give the Kuzma the nod. Kuzma's 2 pt fg% is ridiculous, as is Tatum's 3 pt fg% (except when they are contested). Kuzma's 36 mpg numbers are a bit better and Kuzma's 18.0 PER eclipses Tatum's 17.5 PER. You have to give this to the underdog!

HAVING SAID THAT, what a rookie class!!!

I like Lonzo Ball much as anyone in here. Maybe I ought to give him a few games before I decide moving him to up, for now. Offensively, he's great handling and distributing the ball. Yes the media haven't given him good reviews because there isn't to show in the standing.

Kuzma is interesting player by looking at box score, his mpg is about right for the time being.
I need to watch some games for closer look.

I am not too worried about Lonzo's shot, Jason Kidd had the same problem as a rookie, he shot a terrible % but got better overtime (mainly his 3 point shooting % got much better). Yeah it would be nice if he would score more but his leadership and ability to get Assists/playmake for others is more important for now.
