Haha I dunno that sounds a bit harsh. Kuzma is starting to pass the ball more. Ingram has the tools to be a very good defender. I think his focus needs to shift from offense to defense, and the points will come more naturally. The team as a whole needs to focus more on defense, because there is plenty of length of quickness to defend. Get the stops, and everyone knows how good the guys are in transition.
Yup slightly harsh..lol. But in all seriousness you pass the ball to Kuzma and you know....

I don't understand. Where's Johnathan Williams? He played excellent basketball ball early in the year and haven't seen him since. Is he hurt, was he released? I'd rather see him and the rookies play when our players are playing like garbage. I'm sure they would at least hit their free throws. This is getting ridiculous. I want to see these guys on the court.

I think he's on the g league roster. I know he's on a 2 way contract. Not quite sure how that works but dam I completely forgot about him. He does have hustle and grit.

It seems he's all about the club life now since he got that money. I thought those days were behind him but apparently not. It's like he's a rookie all over again at age 28. Go figure.

Man I hate that Marcellus Wiley guy...with a passion. Trolling laker fans all over twitter as to how much better his clipper roster is. He disappeared when we were sitting at number 4. Total azz clown.

He’s going to end up like Melo unfortunately. No takers in the league.

Especailly since he still don't have a jumpshot. I'm watching Giannis and all the sports commentators always say "When he Develops a Jumpshot" he'll be unstoppable. I know he's only 24 but I sure hope 10yrs down the line they don't say "If he had Developed a Jumpshot".

He was at least tolerable on sports nation. Lol. Kind of surprised with Skip Bayless and his show of support for Zo. He’s usually quite anti laker on the show, or maybe his age is showing now. Lol.

His support for Zo is kind of personal thing. He keeps telling he didn't get the support of his Dad as opposed to Lavar on Zo.

But nonetheless I'm seeing what he saw from what i saw from Zo. The recent podcast, when Zo pass the ball to Ingram or Kuzma they just don't share the ball. Their is a one play where Zo demands an alley oop but was ignored.

Yeah I mentioned that blown alley oop on one of the previous pages as well. Zo was all alone in the paint and signaled for the ball, but the ball hog decided to go one on five, resulting in a bad turnover at a critical time.

As long as Zo isn't included, go for it...lol.

Zo would be the first to go if it was me making the trades. This guy is not dependable. One game he plays great, next game he can not hit the side of a wall.

I also think that who ever is in charge in the coaching part of working with these guys on their free throwing should be fired. Obviously they do not practice free throws. They are the worst of all the nba teams and that is not acceptable. Lakers played pretty good until the fourth quarter against the Clippers, but the Clippers went tall and the lakers went with the smaller players and the lakers played the pace of the Clippers mostly a slow half court pace. Lakers should have run a keep the pace at a high speed level and run the legs off those big tall slow Clipper players. That has to be the fault of Luke for playing at the level that was great for the Clippers and he should answer why he done that.

Also you got to realize that the lakers have a lot of players off sick or injured that are critical to the offense and defense of this young team. They just froze in the fourth quarter and allowed the Clippers a run of 24 points straight. That was the worst run I have seen against any laker team in history.

Lol Ingram should go first than Ball. Ball scores efficient than Ingram in his sleep, and Ingram is a known scorer/shooter while Zo is a playmaker but he scores efficient than BI.GTFOH

I think he and Max Kellerman should've stayed on Sports Nation. I think Max is horrible on First Take. Well I'll say he and Stephen A aren't a good duo IMO.

Those two were quite amazing together. They also had their own dedicated radio show on espn LA 710 (Max & Marcellus). Most entertaining show ever. Used to tune in almost every single day. Michelle Beadle the crazed spurs fan came to sports nation and messed things up between the two of them..imo.

Can’t agree more with the last tweet. Not suggesting that they are not talented, but these two might really be able to showcase their talent on a bad team where individual stats gets top priority.

Off topic:

Nuggets just waived Swaggy Uncle P. Lmao. They just signed him like yesterday. Lol. Too much of tom foolery and bs on social media. He was flaunting fur coats in Denver.

Now I hear Nate Robinson is inviting him to play in the big 3.

For me I would move all these guys, including Lonzo, if that’s what it takes to get another star player. Lonzo is playing better, but keep in mind he’s doing this because LBJ is out and he’s the primary ball handler. Once LeBron comes back and is the point guard, we’re going to see Lonzo drop back off. Now naturally we would say just let Lonzo handle the rock more, but the problem is that they are a better team when LeBron has the ball than when Lonzo has it. Just what it is. None of these guys I deem untouchable. They’re not Embiid or Giannis.

Agree, none of them are untouchable, but can't really say they're better when Lebron handles it over Zo, because we never really get to see what Zo can do with Lebron on floor, as far as running offense.

But would trade them for an AD, Embiid, Greek Freak young star in a heartbeat , although I don't know if I'd trade all of them.
