The way you make a name for yourself in this league is to show toughness. The Kind of reputation Kobe had, What made him a great player a legend people will remember for ever. I saw Brandon Ingram seating on the bench and didn’t look sick. The reason given napping injury was the reason why he had to seat, Napping injury ?????? are you kidding me. After loosing 13 times against the Blazers with their best player out you think some one will use a brain to say we have a chance to win and break that strike so why not? Instead they choose to seat one of their best players for a reason call a napping injury. Man Oh Man that was really smart. In the process they lost the game 14 times in the row against Portland at home. it nice that all the games are close but loosing at this rate may make you look really bad at the end of the year. Can you believe how disastrous it will be if they do not beat last year record of I think 27 games. any body who want to join the Lakers will look at that and say well they just missed to win close game. Really??? As far as The referees are concern, It has been few games that has been questionable by the referee against the Lakers and Now it is time to ask the question to find out. Are the referee in the NBA against the Lakers? may be not all of them but hum there is some thing fishy things going on here. Julius Randel , What a wasted talent. He does things and you will seat there and wonder, what is wrong with him, The talent is there but man. How are the Lakers going to resolve their free throws Problems? It is really embarrassing to See the all team incapable of shooting free throws. These are professional players. all they do is play Basket ball and cannot learn to shoot free Throws. You start to wonder if they really practice hard I mean hard. May be they need to practice even harder clearly what ever they doing right now is simply not working . If I was a professional player and I socks that bad my teammate socks that bad. I would had been embarrassed. Their body language seem to indicate that they seem to be ok with it. Air balls are ok I guess. They seem to loose to ever short handed team.
When it doesn’t seem to matter , when it doesn’t seem right . The result becomes trade rumors
NBA trade rumors: Lakers looked into dealing Julius Randle to Mavericksors.
Lakers Nation just another joyful day for the Lakers Nation and the Basketball world. Kobe Bryant two jerseys number 8 and 24 will be retired today starting at 530p. When you go back and realize how difficult it is to produce superstars in this league, You can only appreciate even more what Kobe Bryant has done for the Lakers. We can see some bright future in Ingram , Lonzo Ball may be Kuzma or the all young Lakers squad. Yet there is no guarantee they will reach the Kobe superstar stardom status. What reality is telling us up to now is the fact that we are receiving signal from left and right that may be soon the Lakers may return to their winning ways. Two of those signals are coming From Magic Johnson and LeBron James in particular , Two of the all time great as you can imagine have a hard time keeping secrets. As of right now , base on signals from both sides this is the way I am reading the situation. In the beginning of the year Magic Johnson seem quiet confident he can bring in two superstars players to the Lakers. With time it has been reduce to maybe one and we don’t have to use our max this year but next year instead. Well LeBron James Team without Tomas is doing great then add Thomas to that team, the chance of winning a championship becomes a reality. Now if he can win in Cleveland and become better than Michael Jordan why would he come to The Lakers? Wouldn’t make sense. Would It. in That case LeBron coming may be pushed back to one more year or two or probably never. Why would the Lakers accept a damage good in LeBron few year back. That is my read of the situation. On The other end Oklahoma continue to struggle and why would Paul George stay there? This is The way I am reading the situation. Now Let say LeBron continue to stay in Cleveland and do not win a Championship. LeBron would have missed the opportunity to take a struggling legendary franchise from bad to good if not excellent and win Championship from the west. To me it will take one more championship from a bad team on the West to a championship where as it may take two championships or even 3 to confirm him as better than Jordan. Winning 3 Championships in this league in the row will be a tall order.
