How will the Lakers do in the game against the Indiana Pacers. What are the Lakers keys to get a W? Who on the Pacers should Purple and Gold be careful of? Will the game be a shootout or low-scoring? Which Laker will step up this game?

No disagreement from me. I was one of the first ones to point that out along with a couple of others. lol. I’m actually hoping they do a deal for Beal centered around Kuz/Hart and rest of the goon squad they signed in the summer.

We’d be lucky to get anything for Kuz.

This is what I feared would happen once the rumors broke out. Irrespective of the trade not happening, the damage has been done.

I turned the television off, I could not watch the damage LeBron has done to this young laker team. Only player that is still playing hard is Ingram and that is because he has turned off any internet propaganda about the trade. But the rest have turned on LeBron and Magic and you can see it from Kuzma to Rondo. They have lost all interest on whether the lakers win or lose.

The Sacramento Kings stand a better chance of making the playoffs. WTF?!

I guess some of you guys were right about not fearing anyone in the playoffs. Nothing to fear if your in the freaking lottery!

I disagree about Kuzma that he is a bad player. If I was scoring 30 to 40 points every game and then you read or hear that he might get traded away, I believe I would say f*** this team. They do not appreciate what I was doing. I believe several of the players feel the same way, and I do not blame them. LeBron threw them all under the bus and Magic was right along with LeBron.

It’s a shame how injuries/suspensions really hit this team. I truly

Believe when 100% healthy we are #2 in the west. I absolutely hate the basketball gods for not letting us be healthy. Sucks.

I’ve said that’ lebron was the worst star we could have signed for the kids. How bad is the damage? I hope they come around. Meanwhile, Luke will take the blame for all of this, unfairly. Magic won’t have to answer for his crimes, lebron the GOAT won’t have to either.

I honestly believe there are two possible scenarios. One, we are really that bad. Two, trade talk have destroyed this teams chemistry. If there was any...

I fear after watching them perform in this game, Magic will give the Pels what they want. It’s not only Lebron who wants another star, Magic has been adamant about getting 2-3 superstars even before Lebron got here.

This could have been so easy. Sign Cousins for next to nothing. Wait til summer sign another big free agent. Now you have total chaos and a bunch of players who feel betrayed.

This is a mess.

And how soon will LeBron want out? I predicted that if the Lakers lose a lot, The King would want out.

Now the Lakers have no choice. Trade the whole team and all your firsts for years to come cos these young kids are done here.

Could Mitch and Jim done any worse?

He (Magic) sure knows how to screw up team moral I tell ya. If LBJ wants AD so bad then just ask to be traded to Pels. I'll take Jrue back in return...lol.

But to be fair, this is not the first time this team has folded up like this and showed no effort or energy. There were no trade talks when they played Cleveland/Washington/Knicks.

They all trash give Pels what they want. Get Me AD. Shut both AD and Lebron rest of the season. Just to show the league they need the lakers more. Fuk this league for screwing us over

I think that if LeBron does not like what he saw in tonights game, they should trade him to the Pelicans for AD. That would be the best thing Magic could save face. Because trading the whole team is crazy. Maybe Jennie needs to fire Magic.

Trade LeBron for AD straight across, keep the young players and in the summer pick up Kawhi plus a few free agents.

I don’t know what we will do to get out of this mess. Uninspired basketball tonight. It will be interesting how Lebron and Magic react.

One thing that bugs me, lebron being a supposed “great leader” is that it seems like he hasn’t done anything to ease the minds of his teammates, and he actually served to make it worse with his tweets during the super bowl. No players only meetings, no quotes to the media, etc. He should be that guy, whether the young’s are getting traded or not. Let them know he has their backs. Nothing as far as we know. Nothing. Kobe challenged players to be better. Others reassured their teammates. It just seems Lebron is only worried about himself and when he can start winning again, by loading up with other stars using the youngins as sacrificial lambs. That feeling is all too evident.

more than anything I believe Magic/Pelinka need to be gone. The team would turn around if there wasn’t ridiculous pressure for the playoffs with a very unbalanced roster. Plus 11 people on the team found out that they’re not wanted

I’m pretty upset about this whole thing. Somehow every supposed offer by the Lakers came out and essentially everyone but Lebron can go is the message that is out there. Magic showed his hand for the world to see and everyone knows just how desperate the Lakers are

One guy said it best. “Lebron is like the Thanos of the NBA, one snap of his fingers and half the team is gone”

This will be hard to heal because LA was so desperate to land a star to pair with an aging superstar.

You and me both. I’ve never seen a FO handle its affairs so horridly. I’d keep Pelinka though, going off another post you had. He seems a guy who’s steady headed and has a good eye for talent. I’m sure that ALL of this superstar garbage is coming from Magic. Great player but seems a fool when it comes to actually handling players. Every single player on the roster knows they’re not wanted, Lebron deserves some of the blame but Magic should take most of it.

In the end, the most excruciating thing about all of this for me is that Luke will be the one to take the blame. Unless Jeanie comes out and puts her foot down after witnessing the monstrosity that is the Magic Regime, this won't end with Luke, or our current core. If Jeanie can fire her brother though, I’m sure she can fire Magic. We should all remember him as the player. Of course if he guides us to multiple ships now, it’ll be great and I can get behind that. But look what he’s made of us now. The league hates us even more than they used to because of his big mouth. Our current team is in shambles. We showed our hand to the world as you said. If we want a cheaper star now, best bet they’ll ask for our entire core as well.

Not surprised they didn't give any effort.. there's no way they'll give 100% effort to team that is going to trade them lol

Magic so far:

  1. Lost PG13, an easy get.

  2. Missed out on KL, a not-so-easy get

  3. Missed out on Cousins, a very easy get.

  4. Lost Julius for nothing.

  5. Blew the trade with AD by going public so...

  6. Destroyed the young guns confidence

  7. Brought LaVar back into action when he was silent.

Magic just might get the JIM BUSS AWARD!

I had to create an account. I am not sure how you can blame any of this on Magic?

  1. Thunder did not want to trade PG to where PG said he wanted to be traded to. They opted to go with the best offer from an eastern conference team. NOT an easy get it makes it harder to get PG because of him going public about his desire to sign with Lakers.

  2. Same thing. If KL is rumored to sign with LA, you think Pop of all people will hand the Lakers his biggest star? Yeah probably not.

  3. Cousins story is hard to read. If the Lakers did indeed offer him a short contract, why would he sign with the Lakers over a near-guaranteed championship with the Dubs?

  4. Julius is a guy that I do believe they should've kept. So here, maybe Magic deserves some blame.

  5. Media. Magic is trying to keep the details of this trade as under the table as possible. Somehow I think Pels are leaking details to media.

  6. Media/It is a business. Not Magic's fault whatsoever. What is he supposed to do?

  7. Media. All it takes is a media member to reach Lavar and boom.

I trust Magic and Pelinka a thousand times more than the old regime. There is only so much Magic can do to control the enhanced media attention. They're the Lakers, not the Grizzlies or Magic. This team is big and people/haters/other fans/media members are doing everything they can do to stir up the pot.

We have gone from having conversations about unrealistic playoff expectations to getting completely blown out by the Indian Pacers. 42 points?! Maybe my expectations are too much for this team, but what I didn't expect is this garbage. I'm sorry, this team is clearly no better than last year and something needs to be done. This team is a disgrace.
