Lakers are 3-0 since LaVar Ball called Luke Walton "soft"...maybe there are some merits to his words lol.

Lonzo is probably super fun to watch if you don't hate him or the Lakers..

Were the Spurs resting their starters or were they hurt?  Hate to think the spurs would rest 3 starters.

Gasol and Aldridge were playing.  Other than that, I can't keep track of who's healthy or not on that team, but somehow they keep winning.  But, last night the Spurs were downright HORRIBLE.  They must have telegraphed at least 6 passes in the 2nd half alone that led to fast breaks for the Lakers.  Really bad and frustrating.

Green/Leonard/Gay hurt, Parker resting.

And their opponents aren't that good.

Yep. They literally faced the worst record in the league, the third worst record in the league, and a severely depleted Spurs team all at home. I'd say that has just as much to do with it than Lonzo.

Hopefully the Nets take this one against Atlanta.

Sucks that Orlando can't be relied upon winning enough games to get above the Lakers.

Memphis up big on the Nuggets in the 1st quarter...I have no doubt whatsoever this lead will hold and we can already mark up a big win for the Grizzlies...

exactly itís sad. The nets and bulls have surprised by being able to pull off tough wins and get close in losses. Magic just seem to sputter into losses like itís nothinf. Same with hawks and grizz to some degree. Iím hoping magic find a groove eventually

I was thinking there have been rumors of possible Randle and Clarkson trades, but what about Lopez, Caldwell Pope, and Brewer as possible buyout candidates?  All of them are on expiring deals, and from what Iíve read the buyout market could be bigger than normal this year.  That would be awesome for us.

Okay, you're not allowed to talk anymore. ;)

I hadn't realized just how bad Memphis is without Conley. Sigh...
