Mavs have held their lead against the warriors the entire first half.

So as of now, if some of you haven't looked, the LAL are tied for 7th worst record. They're 3 games out of the 3rd spot. They are playing hard, maybe not defensively but they seem to score enough to keep themselves in games, thanks to their bench, and they've won about 5 games in which they were supposed to lose, or at least that 's what Vegas thought.
Their next 5 games are against teams with winning records and then 2 very important games against teams in the lottery (Grizzlies and Clippers) followed by 3 more tough teams.
After that the month of January gets really interesting. Some bad teams jockeying for lottery spots.
I hope they trade some of their bench players that keep them in games.

The Lakers suck. They are better than last year. They are building something, but they still won't win a lot of games this year.

I think Lonzo will be good.

I think Ingram will be good.

I think Kuzma, Nance, and Clarkson are all good role players.

I think Randle is a good specialty player that will find 25+mpg in the league somewhere.

They have about 5 pieces: 2-3 good starters and 2-3 good role players.

I don't think they're the favorites to land Lebron in the offseason. I think CLE has a better chance of resigning him.

It is amazing how the Bulls have won 4 straight, so technically the Lakers are only 3 games away from possibly being 2nd worst in the league.

That won't happen though, but with a brutal schedule ahead, maybe Lakers drop to 4th/5th worst by the end of the month?

Hornets should figure it out soon, and hopefully 1 or 2 of MEM/DAL/SAC/PHO start winning a few games to end the month.

Yes, thanks for pointing that out. Not sure how I missed that.

Nah. I really feel Lebron is really on the way out. The only hint I can see Lebron staying is if the Cavs trade away that Brooklyn pick...if the Cavs kept it then I fully expect Lebron 100% to bolt.

IMO, Lebron is going neck-deep into the entertainment business, and will head to LAL as soon as the season is over. Winning another title, Warriors, Celtics, all that other stuff is just noise that isn't as important to him as his post-NBA life.

yup...i agree .....he wants to be majority owner of a team some day .   Teams cost billions now not millions .  Its going to be a big check for even The King to write.   There is way more money to be made in LA for LeKing than Cleveland. 

if he does not get a title this year in Cleveland .  He ll go to a bigger market for money above and beyond what Cleveland pays.  Cavs can offer more money , but it won't touch overall what he could pull down business wise in LA. 

Titles mat soon be on secondary to money ,location .

Bulls (8-20) have now won five straight, beating the Bucks 115-109. How long before they trade Robin Lopez and Mirotic?

I hope they keep them at the rate they are winning.  Hopefully another team to pass the Lakers.  Hard to believe 2 weeks ago.

Remember last year when everyone wrote off Miami as a tanking team and they went on to win like 20 of 23 games? Still a lot of time for a lot of teams to go on major winning and losing streaks.

Lakers could still end up as a third or second worst team in the league.

Suns just beat Wolves (level with Lakers) and Dallas look like getting the win over the Spurs (one win behind Lakers).
