2021 Lakers Thread

Since the Lakers are going to win the lottery for us and give us the #1 pick in next year's draft, I figured we should have a dedicated thread to discuss their craptacular efforts this season.

They'll get their first loss tomorrow night to GSW. I can't wait.

I still think they’re likely going to win a ton of regular season games just due to top heavy talent. But they are soooo dependent on staying healthy to get too far into the playoffs. It will be just like last year where if James or Davis miss any time they’re in dire straights. James missed most of the regular season and they plummeted to the play in.

They have a questionable big three as far as fit and injuries and the rest of their roster sucks.


If they drag themselves into the playoffs, they can be dangerous. I don’t see them making it there because I see AD and LeBron getting hurt trying to win regular season games and I see Westbrook losing them some winnable ones by forcing shots on nights where he couldn’t hit the broad side of a barn.

Agreed, barring the obvious (injuries), they will win more games than people think.

I'm suspicious that they will have any playoff success whatsoever as I do not like the fit of that roster at all. But when your team has Lebron, who knows

Man its hard to see how much the Lakers aka LeBron is in Pelicans fans heads....

As a Pels fan the lakers have zero to do with anything I can about. They will continue to be great no matter what.... It's the Lakers/Celtics just like baseball is the Redsox/Yankees...

As a small market team, the Pelicans and especially fans should not waste any energy on big market teams like the Lakers who have multiple championships and will likely continue to win more while the small market teams are complaining...

Focus that energy on the guys that are here, focus that energy on building a better basketball culture, I think thats what gets lost in all of this in NOLA....

OKC has done a great job with that, San Antonio is the blueprint...just wish the fan base would buy in, never has.... and likely never will.

(sorry had to drop some truth even though I know I will get destroyed)

You don't care that, if the Lakers end up with a top-10 pick in the draft, it becomes ours?

Speaking of overrated NBA players, Westbrook is probably the most overrated player in the NBA for the past several years and I've got him in my all-time top 5 most overrated in the history of the NBA.

Lakers expected to go with a starting lineup of Russell Westbrook, Kent Bazemore, LeBron James, Anthony Davis and DeAndre Jordan in tonight’s season-opener against the Warriors

Would Bazemore or Jordan start for any other team in the league?

I would love to see Davis rupture his Achilles early in the season, if LeBitch or Westbrook get a major injury that would be great as well.

I don’t see Westbrick getting an injury that leaves him on the shelf.

One that makes him unable to score? More believable.

In 35 minutes, Westbrook was 4-13 from the field for a total of 8 points. He had 4 assists band 4 turnovers, and his +/- ended up at -23.

The preseason doesn't look like a fluke now, does it? Westbrook looks washed. Carmelo is washed. Last night, LeBron had 35 and AD had 33, but no one else scored in double digits. Both LeBron and AD had 11 rebounds too, and no one else had double digits -- AD and LeBron have to do all the work. How long can that continue until they get hurt?

I don’t really like any of these guys, but it’s a bit much to wish career altering injuries on them. Gotta be better than that my dude. That’s probably going to result in some shitty arse karma tbh.
