the west is also much tougher than the east. While the lakers may be Better than many of the east's tankers, a tougher schedule may mean more/about even losses

So far in the preseason, the Lakers are 1-3. If you multiply that for 82 games, its 20.5 wins lol

Games that count start tonight for the LAL. They are at home vs. the Clippers. They are 6 point underdogs, not that it matters. I think they get smoked, having many new and young players. Bad combination so early in the season. The only way they win is if they shoot 50% or better from the field.

Could have been 40 if the Clips cared. Ugly.

Beverley locked Lonzo down, and talked trash the whole time.

It was beautiful

Walton screwed up in picking the starting lineup.

PG: Ball
SG: Ingram
SF: Deng
PF: Nance
 C: Lopez

Walton cannot pick Deng and Nance as his forwards. It has to be one or the other. There isn't enough skill offensively (ball-handling, passing, shooting, shot-creation). It is too limited.

Ball, Ingram and Deng is far too slow defensively to be played as perimeter starters. Ingram needs to be played at the SF position. Not SG. Ball is what he is. Deng is the guy that needs to be replaced here and needs to be replaced by a quick guard who can defend.

Randle should not see any minutes at PF. Both Nance and Deng are superior players.
Randle could get the backup center minutes ahead of Bogut depending on matchups / need.


Terrible selection by Luke Walton. Shot his team in the foot before the opening tip even happened.

But I thought the big baller dad said Lonzo was going to have this team in the playoffs? How log before the big baller is calling out Luke Walton and letting everyone know that if he was the coach they would be better?

Yeah, it's just one game, but here's the issue. The Lakers defense is BAD.

They may need to outscore their opponents a lot to win games especially against the Western teams, and unless Lonzo becomes a consistent scorer, that seems unlikely.

Guessing they may also deal one of Randle or Clarkson mid-season to open up a second max contract slot this summer.

Could really help us with that Lakers Pick!  ;D

yeah is Caldwell Pope injured?

thought it was obvious that he had to start at the 2 next to Lonzo. They need his defense badly.

Then slide Ingram in at the 3 and Lopez at the 5. Deng or Nance starts at the 4.

Its an awful roster, but Walton's lineup doomed them.

KCP was suspended for a DUI he had in the offseason.

I imagine KCP will play the SG position for the Lakers.

1 game just doesn't mean anything. Still, it was nice signs all around.
