Please post your predictions for the upcoming contest vs. the New Orleans Pelicans . What must the Lakers do earn a win? Which player should LA focus on? Will the game be a shootout or a defensive struggle? How many points will Lebron James score?

Is it better to let the Pelicans win so AD thinks that the Lakes need his help?

Ingram and Lebron gives me headaches when they get the ball. They wait too long with the ball in their hands. Gotta make a move or keep the ball moving. It lets defenses get a breather and disrupts the offense’s flow

Zubac looks good. Must say I feel he gets undeserved hate in here. He seems to be trying his hardest to be more mobile and run the floor better to fit in our play style, which I appreciate. With his skill set and size though he could have been very good 10 years ago.

Yeah, at least Ingram seems to be getting better with moving without the ball. Ingram said he’s modeled his game after Kobe, which is very unfortunate. I’d wish Luke play him with the second unit more instead of having Lebron out there with them. Having a guy who can create his own shots is valuable

So the $$ question. Who is to be blamed for keeping Zubac on the bench and away from action? How come the coaching staff/management didn’t see this? They have shafted him big time if this is what he can do with the starting unit.

Think because in past he's been a 1 or 2 game wonder , than disappeared.

But would like to see him get more minutes.

Yeah they have developed him so they need to showcase those efforts. Don't want to see the garbage mins exhibitions. We usually draw our conclusions /form our opinions when we see the inconsequential rubbish at the end. Lol. Not fair to the player.

Mcgee is a keeper for sure, the way he runs the floor like an athletic wing. Fits right in with what we are trying to accomplish.

Trade bait imo. He can't sustain what he does.

I wish he would play like that all the time. I saw amazing finesse last night from his game. Reminded me of a Gasol back in the day.

Heard he asked to be released, didn't think he had a meaningful role on team this season.

I've said for a long time I'd far rather give the young guys a chance and see what we have than play vets that won't be around much longer.

Not saying I expected Zubac to play quite that well but you will never see that unless you give him a chance. Nothing worse than watching young guys walk because the FO are too busy chasing stars.

That was my biggest gripe with Byron Scott. No one expected wins under him but he would play vets trying to get them.
