These were remarkable postgame media sessions with LeBron, AD and Kuz. They vented a season’s worth of frustration in 30 minutes. Feels like a broken team with very little time to get right.

I remember the days where Lebron was actually likable, but they are fading away from my memory quickly. He’s really lost both himself and a lot of fans over the past 3-4 years.

It's a three-way tie for 5th right now between the Lakers, Blazers, and Mavs. Of those teams, the Lakers have the toughest remaining schedule.

Man, just imagine the atmosphere at the SKC if the final game of the season has both us and the Lakers fighting for postseason position.

Westbankers need to be banned from that game.

For the sake of discussion, because I'm still not very clear on this...if you are in the play-in as a 9th-10th seed are you still eligible for a top 4 pick?

Would love the Lakers to lose so much that they are in the 9th or 10th spot and then will root for them to get a high draft pick.

It's been more than a decade since Lebron was even remotely likable.

The Decision...

The teams that lose out in the play in tournament are in the lottery, so yes.

Best thing in the world would be for the Pels to eliminate the Lakers from the play in, the Lakers win the lottery, pick conveys to us, we win the nba finals, Zion wins finals mvp, then we pick Cade Cunningham.

One can dream right?

I would be satisfied with simply the Lakers falling to the play in game and losing to anyone, but if we beat them, the laughter i would have would be unending.

LeBron is out tonight against the Nuggets to rest the ankle he just reaggravated.

I am actually getting excited about the possibility of Lakers missing the playoffs. Even if all that happens is that they suffer the indignity of being forced to compete in the play-in tournament, that's still great for us in the long term.

Again, the key thing is that ring-chasing vets won't go to the Lakers this offseason for the minimum.

It’s comical that no one saw this coming when Lebron went down. I’m surprised they were able to stay afloat this long.

I hope they burn.

Shams: Lakers guard Dennis Schroder is expected to miss 10-to-14 days due to health and safety protocols, sources tell me and
@billoram. Schroder entered protocols on Sunday.

So, he actually has COVID. He will either miss the rest of the regular season, or he will be back just in time for the game against us.

I remain amazed that some players didn't get vaccinated. This is a serious blow for them.

I was just going to ask, how the frick did he get COVID?

I thought they were all vaccinated. They should have just made that shite mandatory to play.

1.5 back of Spurs. Would be .5 back with the tiebreaker if we shot 60% instead of 50% from the foul line that night. Still have a chance to catch them but I think we have to go 4-2 which is tough when you look at our schedule.
