    Was as the raps game last night. Their 2nd unit is horrendous. Luca puts up a dominant lines in a way you barely notice.

    The Wizards are undefeated and in 1st place in their division.

    I probably won't be able to every say that again.

    I've been a Charlotte Hornets fan since their inception and they just got their first 3-0 start. As a Hornets fan, you enjoy the minor milestones.

    The NBA season does bring back my favorite gambling option, the money line parlay in NBA games.

    Looks like Russell Westbrook likes playing when Lebron is out of the lineup......

    Not sure if that is a long term strategy for the Lakers though.... lol

    It makes sense that a ball dominant guy who isn't Lebron but is an elite player would flourish with Lebron out. And that is actually a big advantage for the Lakers when you talk about staggering playing time.

    The disadvantage, if they cannot learn to coexist on the floor together, is you have an all-star sitting on the bench during crunchtime when you want your best 5 on the floor.

    One issue with the Lakers is half a dozen rotation guys are out. Another is Russ and Lebron coexisting in a way where the whole is better than the sum of their parts.

    I do wonder if it make more sense to put the ball in Russ' hands and have Lebron on the weak side. Sort of the same concept the Lakers had when looking to extend Kobe's career by trading for Dwight Howard and Chris Paul. But that means LBJ sacrificing his game more so than Russ.

    The Lakers would be better with Westbrook coming off the bench.

    Sure.... that wouldn't cause any friction for known drama queen, 9x All NBA guy and one of the 75 greatest players of all time.... hahaha!!!!! https://www.nba.com/75

    His last time off the bench was in 2008.

    Russ is going to buy right in.... never a me first guy........ lol...


    Closest the Lakers might get is to adjust some rotation minutes to get LBJ and RW away from each other for a bit.

    Absolutely. It's up to Frank Vogel how to best configure the lineup so they can be most effective. Lebron and Russ are two ball dominant players who are not great at playing off the ball and shooting off a pass. Neither one of them will ever be confused with Klay Thompson.

    DAMN.... Can't wait till KLAY comes back. That will at least put the Warriors into that Top 5ish Western playoff mix.

    If he can get back by Christmas 2021 or January 2022, that would still give them some regular season to see how he fits in. 3rd year Shooting Guard Jordan Poole has really stepped up so far this year. Helped take some of the scoring load off Curry. How Klay and Andrew Wiggins will mix will also be interesting as well.

    Really, Klay is such a great shooter, he should be able to play with anyone that can get him the ball....haha.....

    Klay is the best shooter off the catch I have ever seen. I have an ongoing argument with a kid in his late 20's with whom I play hoops on who is better between Klay Thompson and Reggie Miller. I say Klay because of his defense.

    I really dislike this Lakers team. And seeing Westbrook in a Lakersí uniform just doesnít work for me. I donít know why they traded for that guy. A ball hog who canít shoot is not what this team needs.

    I mean the Lakers struggled to beat a really really bad Spurs team. I mean come the fuck on. LeBron or not they shouldíve pulverized that team. And they were lucky to beat Memphis.

    I actually think Carmelo Anthony has been OK. I donít mind him so much. He knows what he is at this point in his career and he wonít make trouble.
