    From what I saw in that 4th quarter the Lakers had to beat the zebras too. Phantom fouls on AD and every contested out of bounds was ruled Pacers ball. Lakers blew a 17pt lead ffs.

    I remember seeing him play for the Canadian NT a few years ago. He was then as he is now... poised. Pacers draft well.

    Westbrick will always hold them back. Trading him is a must if they want to be legit contenders.

    Lakers had a good run for a little bit, it ends tonight against the Cavs. Laker big guns starting to get worn down and injured again.

    All that build up over what they're going to do with the two 2nd rnd picks, and they swap 'em for another guy that doesn't shoot well ...and they still have Westbrick.

    No that's not surprising... not when you consider there was some hope they could make a swing for someone like Hield who for all his faults is an excellent shooter. There was some talk they could get him AND Turner -wishful thinking! So if anything their price should be drifting.

    Can't see Hachimura helping them. Too green/ mental issues/ doesn't know how to play the team game ...he's the opposite of Watanabe. Magic Johnson giving it the thumbs up seals it. Terrible trade.

    Agree. From what I've seen of him the guy is a "tweener", nothing stands out.

    At 6600 the odds makers are saying there is no chance of a title run. And this is with James and unibrow. Crazy.

    Jeanie BUss has ruined the Lakers. She'd rather see James break the scoring record or Byrant have his 60pt or whatever performance in a meaningless season finale than actually win a championship. This is why some people say women shouldn't vote lol... sentimentality over efficiency ;/

    Lakers are playing better and they may just squeak in the back door into the playoffs if Lebron stays healthy and they can keep this up. Davis is coming back as well.

    Biggest shocker is Russ Westbrook is playing well now. That was the difference.

    odds to win a title on pinnacle, in order. 13 teams ahead of the lakers. again, amazing considering lebron and unibrow on the team, and the trade deadline isn't hit yet. obviously the rest of the players are junk, i guess they include westbrook schroder and beverly cause lebron and unibrow are obviously top players. they gave up kuzma this guy is on fire for the wiz

    celtics
    nuggets
    nets
    bucks
    grizz
    warriors
    clip
    6ers
    suns
    cavs
    pelicans
    mavs
    heat
    lakers +4003


    cronyism of course counts in who owns the team. and who doesn't cause any trouble. these people want to keep their yachts, their lifestyle of everyone sucking up to them. endless bad gm's and coaches for this reason. the team that actually hires the good coach or gm can win it all. a lot of these players, owners, coaches, we worship, but they are so overrated it's not even funny

    James & Davis aren't such a great duo anymore. I can believe in James having a good game in the playoffs even a few years from now... but a 7-game series? No chance! His sidekick Davis lost his super-star status with all the injuries. They will be an interesting team in the playoffs as a 7 or 8 seed but I doubt they actually advance.

    They kinda resemble that old Celtics team James was finally able to beat with the HEAT. Rondo/ Pierce/ Garnett being Schroder/ James/ Davis. 1st round upset not totally out of the question but hard to see them beating anyone good.

    they should trade lebron and brow and prepare to build with young players and draft picks

    but with hachimura, that's not gonna happen.

    Davis = Glass.. He won't stay healthy. Old Lebron is on the brink of getting injured any day soon as well.

    If everyone does stay healthy I do think they might make the playoffs though. Bench and roll players are playing much better now.
