Lakers Nation, How many times are we going to see the same 3rd quarter of having the lead coming in Lazy and loosing it. How many times are we going to see a bad 3 pointer shooting team in the league shooting 3points wide open against the Lakers lazy Defense . I mean wide open exposed by Reggie Miller And his co workers was being shown. Dallas The worse rebounding team in the league out rebounded the Lakers by a lot . Ball watching not running to the 50 / 50 ball. Just lazy on defense not paying attention to detail late on most shooters. I mean you name it. just watch Randle on defense he relaxes and ball watching his guy just run to the 3 point line he stay guarding the paints while 3 points are being lunch time after time almost every game the problem seem the same . he doesn’t block any body. he is not a rim protector. I do not know if they watches film. can some one start teaches him, them positioning defense please. Just having your hands in the air and far away from the shooter is not playing defense I am sorry. just compare Randle defense to that of Larry Nance. How many times Reggie Miller called the Lakers Lazy during the game. Again Robinson cannot play center he is not Dramond Green. he is too small. There is a reason why he has been going from team to team not by accident. I like his energy but it is only good for few minutes until he is tired. The Lakers are not going any where. They just need to start developing Zubac . A big guy themselves compare to Gasol . You are just wasting his talent or development by not playing him. By now the Lakers know Mazgov is not their futur. so why insist on something you already know is not your futur.
The Obama administration is finalizing plans to punish Russia for interfering with the recent U.S. election with an announcement could come as soon as Thursday,
A senior administration official tells CBS news they will likely name individuals associated with Moscow’s efforts to hack Democratic organizations in the run-up to the presidential election.
Officials have said sanctions would likely target leaders in Russia’s largest intelligence agency – which they believe was behind the cyberattacks aimed at helping President-elect Donald Trump — and operating with President Vladimir Putin’s blessing.
“At a point in time where we’ve taken certain actions that we can divulge publicly, we will do so,” Mr. Obama said. Please read

Lakers Nation. The passing of the ball by 2 of the best teams in the league was incredible. couple with the defense no wonder they are the 2 best teams in the league and when you add superstar status to them, it is Game over. Well, Coach Jeff Van Gandhi described it so well. Coincidently it is the Lakers problem specially of late. I have seen in games 3 Lakers standing side by side by themselves. common sense will tell you they must have some wide open players some where on the court so I need to start looking for they. Unfortunately, usually by the time they find them they are shooting 3 pointers unmolested as the result even the worse of the worse teams look good against the Lakers. this is the NBA . you leave professional players who’s job is to shoot hoops all day all night wide open. they will kill you. The statistics are only good with good defense and misleading with bad defense. The result of the Lakers loosing 11 out of 12 doesn’t lie. 3 killers to the Lakers game . late te defend , not passing the ball on the 4 quarter trying to play one on one ball, lazy running back on defense, and let add dumb turn overs to it. Not passing the half court line on time when the game is on the line. not reading the defense and passing to teammate when they should not. taking bad shots at the wrong time on the 4th quarter. perfect example the hornet game after the Lakers took the lead on the 4th by 6 points didnt score a basket again until was past . Clarkson playing one on one ball stepping out of bound behind the basket. almost loosing the ball again on exactly the same play he just steeped out of bound. nick young catch and shoot with no conscience. Randle forcing an attack by himself around the opposing team 2 players to the basket for an air bal instead of reading the defense and passing when they converge. It looks like watching the same seen over and over and over again without them learning. I mean. We have seen players came into this league and learn fast. perfect example durant and Russel after 2 years together they were already good enough to make the playoff. Curry and Thompson alike. The Lakers group may take a little longer than anticipated the learn curve being so slow. Do not Guess me wrong they are good players the learning process is just taking too long.
