If you can’t put it together to beat that team at home then you got issues

    Yeah it’s the first game of the year but you can just see things in a team right from the start. They were awful in the preseason and they looked just as bad yesterday.

    Going to be a long season. Long season being frustrated with Russell Westbrook being a Laker which isn’t surprising. Still don’t understand why they traded for that clown but OK.

    I haven’t said much because I didn’t want to upset my Laker brethren but I haven’t really been impressed with any of the moves they made this offseason. I just think it’s a bunch of crap they’re throwing together to try to make it work. The team that won the title a couple years ago was so much more cohesive and so much better.

    And no I don’t think they’re going to be “fine.” I really don’t. I just don’t think this is a championship team nor will it become one. We’ll see if I’m wrong. I’m also finding it hard to like this team because there are so many guys on it that I don’t like. Having to cheer for Russell Westbrook, DeAndre Jordan, and and Carmelo Anthony just rubs me the wrong way. I really really don’t like those guys. It’s already hard enough for me to cheer for LeBron because I’m not a fan, but I do appreciate the fact that he takes pride in being a Laker at least.

    So those are my thoughts after the first game. I’m not impressed.
    Brett, I hope you're wrong.

    It seems like the Lakers would have been better off trading for a lights out shooter like Buddy Hield rather than Russell Westbrook. Fit and chemistry are so critical in basketball.

    THT upon return needs to be a difference maker. They need Arica, upon return, to hit shots.

    But ultimately itís going to be Westbrookís responsibility, with help, to find his niche. If he doesnít I fear a coaching change.

    This is a special situation where I think figuring RWís role may take time but, if it works, could pay dividends later.

    We shall see.

    Steph Curry..... picking back up where he left off... Heat check in the 1st quarter. Couldn't miss.



    Those last two 3's were just daggers at the end of the 4th Quarter.

    They look old and slow. And, as we suspected would be the case, Westbrook is not a good fit with Lebron and AD.

    Yep. Bunch of old dudes who donít fit. Just a bunch of names like I said. And Westbrook of course he wasnít going to work because he makes absolutely no sense for this team.

    They might be better if they bring Westbrook off the bench. A ball dominant player who canít shoot is probably the worst possible fit with Lebron.

    Iím not sure what team he would be good for considering he hasnít lasted anywhere anymore. His kind of game just doesnít work.

    I wonder if the Lakers decided to trade them if there would be any takers?
