Steve Nash 2.0 -- Reality Check

February 13, 2019 - Posted by BaadMaster

Bottom line reality check: When dealing with superstars, the operative phrase is -- "Keep it close and let _____ take ; The blank could be filled in with MJ, Kobe, LeBron, Steph, Harden, etc.

Well our ragtag "trading block irregulars" did exactly that: they kept it close against Atlanta and then it was supposed to be LeBron time. Unfortunately, Bron can't do it no mo.

Facts is facts Jack. Looks like we got Nash but with a bigger ego.

Charles "The Laker Hater" Barkley said it best when he opined on the Nash trade: (paraphrased): "Any...

The Lakers Will Destroy This Young Team Because They Have to

June 16, 2018 - Posted by SPQR


Reading so many depressing articles lately, all saying the Lakers will have a super team of Lebron, George and Leonard. And those articles say we will trade Kuzma and Ingram, at the least to get Leonard. And of course that would also mean Randle leaving. So that leaves us Ball and Hart, maybe, from our young core.

And of course this is the veteran team both Magic and Lebron would want. Magic because it's his super team and Lebron because he doesn't want to fool around with young players. All in the hope they can beat the Warriors in the West then presumably Boston in the finals. Do...

The Lakers and the Shape of Things to Come

April 8, 2018 - Posted by SPQR

Back in 1933, writer Wells published a work of fiction called the Shape of Things to Come. My friend Lakersfrommass said the title sounds like a porn movie, and while that is true, it's not (but maybe someone should make one with that title). And while Well's book was indeed filmed more than once, instead of it being about porn it is about what was to come. In it he tried to envision and guess the future from 1933 to 2016.

Some of Well's predictions were very accurate, including World War Two and massive air forces bombing countries into devastation and exhaustion. Many of his others...

Can Magic and Pelinka See the Face of the Franchise?

March 11, 2018 - Posted by SPQR


In a prime time game against the Lebrons the whole nation saw what we have been watching for a long time now. The emergence of Pitt Bull Julius Randle as one of the most unusual, vicious, effective, brutal talents and stars of this league.

And I'm pretty sure that most of the country (at least those who know hoops) were thinking, The Lakers may actually let that 23 year old walk to get Paul George? Really? They want to let that guy go?

Two things happen every Lakers game. Like clockwork. Randle will play like a maniac and just wear teams out. And two, the announcers will talk...

Relentless Randle the Pit Bull of the Lakers

January 24, 2018 - Posted by SPQR

Yes, I know his flaws. He is far more effective going left than right. When he shoots the jumper I expect it to miss. He can play wild and out of control making me shake my head about another turnover.

But make no mistake, Julius Randle brings way more to the team than his flaws take away. He is the true heart and soul of this young team. He is the warrior you have to kill to stop. He is the one who brings The Pain. Relentless, unremitting agony for any player who has to try guard him, for all the players on the opposing team who have to try stop him. For them, it’s never easy and there...

Lebron or Embiid for the Lakers?

July 15, 2017 - Posted by SPQR

I don't think it's any secret what the master plan of Magic and Pelinka is: next year we will bring in Paul George and The King, who will be coming off his consecutive thrashing by Golden State in the playoffs and will very reasonably want to move to a team that gives him the opportunity to be something other than the Warriors personal pinata doll.

Magic is hoping that Ball, Ingram, Zubac, Randle, Kuzma and the others take a big enough leap next year to lure Lebron here arm in arm with George.

I don't really want Lebron here for several reasons. In fact I'm not excited about George or...

On Ingram, the "face of the Franchise" and More.

July 8, 2017 - Posted by SPQR

I have some thoughts about Ingram, Ball, co-ents by Magic and some other things that have happened since draft night through our first summer league game.

The good: Ingram is that rarest of players who can do it all. He can shoot, handle, drive, finish, pass. He also has the athleticism and size to maximize all of it. He also has the mind. You can see he knows the game and exactly what he's doing.

Sorry Magic, but it's Ingram's number that will be in the rafters when it's all over. That will happen. We will see about Ball.

I really liked Bryant. He ran the floor and was very...

Magic and Pelinka Make Their First Move and I Hate It.

June 20, 2017 - Posted by SPQR

Those who have read me for many years know I ripped and tore at Mitch Kupchak forever, for the stupid, silly moves he made that were in now keeping with reality or the best long term interests of this franchise.

So nobody was happier when he and Jim Buss were deposed and replaced by Jeanie, Magic and Pelinka. Now I wasn't happy because that particular triumvirate replaced the old guard, just happy that Mitch and Jim were finally gone. I had reservations about all three of the new directors of the Lakers fortunes.

So now the first power move has been made by our new brain trust and I...

Magic and the Fixed Lottery

May 17, 2017 - Posted by SPQR

A lot of people who should know better are taking Magic’s words about keeping the pick totally the wrong way.
Magic, like all of the greatest athletes is a supreme egoist and totally confident he will win in any contest or endeavor he will ever be in. He believes he was born under a lucky star and can never be beaten.

I remember years ago reading a book about the Showtime Lakers. The Lakers went undefeated in the playoff and had come into Detroit for a title rematch with the Bad Boy Pistons.

As the Lakers buss pulled up to the hotel, on an eldritch, moon flooded night, Magic rose...

Is Mike Brown's Success Diluting Luke Walton's?

May 13, 2017 - Posted by SPQR

In the long expanse of time, things can change, events or accomplishments that look stunningly bright and successful can dim over time as circumstances change and more data is accumulated.

Such a case can be made about current Lakers head coach Luke Walton.

For years we suffered through a panoply of what seemed abysmal, desultory coaches who didn't seem either to be able to relate to the players, create a system that matched their talents or just seemed downright bad.

You know the names: Scott, D'Antoni, Brown.

A little over a year ago Luke Walton was an assistant coach with the...
