Lakers Nation after all the pain we went thru already. We are talking about 4 years of pain . We were promised excitement this year not quitting on games , not laziness not fights arguments with players that resemble the last past years. You are playing at home leading by 17 points then you become lazy making dumb passes trying to become lonzo Ball out there with stupide passes. Against Toronto, I saw several times the Lakers on a fast break 3 on one and try a Lonzo Ball like pass that get stolen and going the other way. common man clearly common sense tells you when you are on a 3 to1 fast break you dribble the ball to the basket until that one defender commit then you have a choice to pass the ball to one of your 2 colleagues for an easy lay up instead they tried a long Lonzo Ball pass and loose the ball, That is dumb . They were leading by 17 points and let the game get away with stupidity , unforced errors then get lazy not going back on defense the coach upset put a bench of player on the floor on a winnable game at home that went 4 minutes without scoring a basket and you loose a . How is that going to make us the fans happy. When winning comes with difficulties , you should take advantage of all opportunities not let them slip thru yours fingers . At the end of the day we may wound up with the same 4 years bad team when we know the talent is there. Again all we are asking is excitement as promised. Is that too much to ask ? The talent is there . whereis the problem, I was so upset, I didn’t watch the Utah game. That how upset I was. I never missed a Laker’s game. Guys just give it all for your fans , We are not expecting you to make the playoff but if you do that will be a present surprise , certainly we are not asking you to go win a championship because we know with certainty that you will not.
Lonzo Ball Says He’s to Blame for Lakers Loss to Jazz After ‘2 Dumb Plays’
Lakers Nation I love Coach Luke Walton but What was that line up he put on the floor that went 4 minutes without scoring a Points on a tide game. By the time he put those who was supposed to be in the game on the fourth quarter 3 minutes before the end, the game was over. I like experimenting but common you have 82 games to experiment not when the game is so close. common man. I am happy the coach removed Lonzo Ball on the fourth. He was just too soft . and his passes were kind of lazy today and made quiet a few turnovers for that. Some of the Lakers thinks they are Lonzo Ball who can throw precise pass from the back court. A lot of them turn into turn overs when they could have simply run with ball to the basket and pass it need be when the defense commit. instead they try to throw it from far to make a 3 on 2 fast break a wasted opportunity. They are young those will improve with time.

Lakers Nation . The Lakers were leading by 8 points with 32 second to go . Instead of running the clock down Ingram will take a bad shut early as the result Phoenix will score on the other side with free throw given for 3 points . Lopez will miss 1 free throw and score one . and Phoenix will score another 3 pointer to bring the score down to 2 points after Ingram miss one free throws and score one . The Lakers will commit a fool again to put them on the line Lucky they missed the first free Throws and the Lakers forget to box out the free throws shooter who almost tide the game before the clock run out. Those are the growing pain the Lakers Nation are going to have to live . I thought against the Clippers I saw Lonzo ball trying to help Ingram on the floor while the other team is scoring the other side on a 5 on 3 . Lonzo Play a great game. That Boy can score rebound and pass the ball . He almost had a triple double . He is going to be great. I do not know why he thinks he should only shoot 4 times while the team is loosing badly. I guess some one had to criticize him for playing bad for him to decide to prove people wrong. That boy is a teaser.
Ball’s second act is superb in Lakers’ win over Suns
Lakers Nation there is a big difference between showing off your nice work during the NBA time off . Those pictures makes them look in good shape but does it translate to the game it self . Watching that first game with the Clippers obviously not. For the past few years, the Lakers team has exchanged players years after years as the result it clearly shows a bunch of Guys with a lack of cohesiveness playing pick up games at Venice Beach with a relax Lonzo ball and a Randle who is not pleased with playing from the bench. Mr. Ball, Welcome where the big boys play. Pretty soon You are going to have to wake up and smell the coffee. At the end of the day , it is only a first game with a lot of learning. They need time and I hope unless they brings in 2 max players as promise, the team will need to concentrate on experience of playing together rather exchanging the all team every year except few young core. It takes a long time for a team to come together and exchanging them every year for the same quality doesn’t help that much as the result, Lonzo ball revolution will not happen overnight
