If the game happens, what are your thoughts on the upcoming Lakers preseason game vs the Brooklyn Nets? The guys were very impressive in the first game, so let's see if they can keep up the chemistry. There is also the free speech controversy regarding China- please feel free to share your thoughts on that as well.

Dave: I have asked you this before -- If every professional sports league does not count pre-season into the Championship chase, why does Lakers Newssurge insist on counting pre-season games into our standings. The season hasn't started yet and I am 18 points behind Tempy. This is totally unfair.

Please explain why this gross unfairness is part of the Guess The Score game.

He is running a website that is free of charge for you/us to visit, it costs him time and money to run the servers and hosting costs. The only way for him to recoup some money from this is to either charge a subscription fee or to get more people to visit the site so he can earn money from advertising. Aka Ad revenue. More people on the site gets him more revenue. So of course he is going to do things to get people on the site as much as he can. The winner gets a $20 gift card or something, of all the things to get upset about, this seriously isn't one of them.

One correct score and you would be in 1st place btw

I've actually done this the past few seasons now so it shouldn't be a surprise 🙂. This is going to be a long season including playoff games so you've got plenty of time to catch up.

Thanks for the support Tempy & Pete! You are right on about the costs- it's not a small amount. But I truly appreciate everyone who turns off his or her ad blocker for the site, and shop on Amazon through the "Support LNS" button!! 🙏

I notice with the time differential, the game is on in about four hours or so. I am a total insomniac -- so I am gonna stay up and watch the game if I can find a feed.

GO LAKERS!

Dam Pink Panther with that late turnover sealed it for the Nets. Still like what I'm seeing though.

Yeah it's early days and rotations still ain't set. There's enough to think it should be a good season.

You bet man. Dark times indeed- I just keep holding out hope that in the end, goodness and justice will triumph.

In this particular controversy with the NBA and China- I think the various responses from different parties reflect their values, and the importance of their values. For Kerr, Popovich, and many NBA players- it's understandable to feign ignorance because it's their livelihood at stake. So wealth or even financial survival surpasses the the values that they also believe in- I think that's way it is for most people. It's just the way it is. But it's those who bravely follows their innate values to do something despite threats to their wealth & survival who can really make a difference. The initial response by the NBA to Morey's tweet was appalling, but thankfully Adam Silver came to his senses and drew a line in the sand. I hope the league does not shy away from our country's values in the future.

Obviously, the same thing is happening in our government as well. Democracy and the rule law are being dismantled and circumvented without consequence. Our country's standing in the world being irreparably damaged by the self-interests of a single person. Republicans of Congress, other than a few, just stand by and feign ignorance. But I digress, lol.

I’m not sure if what I saw on the court was a panther or a skunk. Lol.

He was totally garbage in this game. We look thin in the pg position. Why isn’t Quinn Cook playing?? Is he hurt?

Well said.

Back to basketball. In a guard driven league, we have the Three Stooges in the back court. Last night. Caruso played as bad as he looks, old man Rondo is well, OLD MAN RONDO...

Too bad we didn't get DLo.

But we need somebody or this could be a long season.

The Lakers have money for the buyout market. As we saw with the Dodgers the regular season record can mean nothing if you don't show up in the playoffs. Not too worried about pre season games and losses just yet. Vogel is still experimenting with the starting 5 and putting it all together. LBJ is going to be primary ball handler so a traditional PG really isn't a need imo.

Cook, Daniels and Kuzma to still come into play. LBJ is going to play a lot of PG so we will see.

Yeah we’ll see. On another note I have a stinking suspicion that some fans would be jumping back on the laker bandwagon and would be distinctly visible on laker forums, since some of their adopted teams are no longer in contention. Lmao
