Why is this thread a sticky? The Lakers are fucking irrelevant. D-12 left them. Melo and Dirk ignored their max offers. Gasol took a major paycut because he simply liked the Bulls so much better. Kobe is just cashing in at this point. They overpaid for fucking Jordan Hill, cause even he would have left them otherwise. Their glory days are over. The Clippers have much better players.
Cause I don't care where I belong no more
What we share or not I will ignore
And I won't waste my time fitting in
Cause I don't think contrast is a sin
No, it's not a sin

Scott officially hired. I am calling it now, the Lakers will make the playoffs! Maybe an 8th seed, BUT if Kobe plays more than 70 games this year, the Lakers will get in. And they kind of have to our the Suns get a lotto pick unless the Lakers are in the top 5.

Reminds me of the 94-95 squad that was written off but had the right pieces at the right time.

Not impressed with this years upcoming draft class. Lakers should find ways to get picks next year and get more young establish talent. Unless some freshman this year blows college basketball out the water, I don't see much.

Lakers and Cavs battling it out for Shawn Marion....Indiana also has a heightened interest since Paul George went down.


Lakers also worked out Michael Beasley last week.


Expect another SF signing soon.

As someone who lives in MN, I actually like Beasley. He is a HUGE risk, but if someone can tame all that talent, you have great player.

the talent is there, no question....on a minimum contract, he's the epitome of low risk-high reward.

He can easily start over Johnson for the spot if he gets his head right, and Swaggy P coming off the bench for energy, that's actually a solid swing man set sharing minutes with Kobe.

Yeah, well I would never count Wesley Johnson as solid depth. I never liked him as a rotation player. He's a bust. But Nick Young will get most the minutes. Which is why I hope Beasley can work, because he can start and Johnson then had to depend on Kobe to play.

Wes Johnson is good for defense.. Anything he gives us on offense is a bonus.

A perfect person to come off the bench for a stop behind Kobe and whoever starts at SF. But I just don't like him as a starter.

Off the bench I don't mind as much. I don't like Swaggy starting either, mainly because I like Swaggy to be energy off the bench. But right now I'd have Swaggy start over Wes in a heartbeat. But Wes does have a role, I do value his defense and I think Scott will really expose the strengths of Wes. I just don't see him as a starter.

if you dont want nick or johnson starting there isnt anyone else.



Nick should def come off the bench, simply for the fact that the bench needs scoring. If kobe wasnt on this team he'd be starting, but nick is much needed, hes our jamal crawford/jason terry our 6th man.



but i do think wes should be starting, either that than kobe has to play the 3 and X is going to be the starting SG. which i dont like, i feel like wes's defensive diversity (in terms of guarding 2's,3's and to some extend stretch 4's (who are more on the SF side than PF, and hell if hes not going to get obliterated by a traditonal PF thats is playing the "4" thats going into the post, i dont see a big problem.


its hard to be optimistic with this roster, but hell given that they are used correctly we can do more than we can expect.


The main problem with wesley is when he creates for himself, hes really not good at that unless if hes finishing at the rim. and even then his game is so elementary, some basic fundamental footwork and post game can do wonders for this dude. But he needs to stop shooting off the dribble, the boy cannot do that.


the main thing i believe is creating shots out of our bench, yes nick can, but when he creates his own shot its mainly jumpshots. him being the most skilled player off our bench (assuming hes going to be the 6th)   needs to be able to create.  Nash hope to god his healthy, would be a good fit. defensive liablity but X can guard the more dominant player on the court and have him guard the "shooter" or "defensive players" and maybe we can get away with that.



Lin/Nash/Clarkson
Kobe/X or Clackson
Wes/Nick/X (kobe playing the 3 a bit maybe)
Randle/Boozer
Boozer/Davis


i honestly dont see a Kelly or Sacre in this. assuming, that davis and randle do their jobs.

kendall, kelly, sacre, they just dont have it. im glad kendalls gone, but the kelly signing was just mind boggling

im shocked we havent signed beasley yet....he'd be our 2nd/3rd best scorer and starting small forward + he'd probably be available on a minimum deal. we signed wayne ellington instead. good shooter, but beasley
was far more intriguing for his upside.

I would like to have Beasley, but I am thinking the Lakers are going with the old saying, potential has an expiration date. He is only 25, but if he was to be a big star, he'd be one by now. But his skills are so undeniable that the fact he isn't a star is a bit confusing. With Ellington, you know what you have, and even though he isn't that impact player, you know you are getting that solid player. But why I don't agree with signing Ellington over Beasley, as long as I've been a Laker fan, they always seem to get the most out of players like Beasley. For some reason, players like Beasley excel on the Lakers, it's why the Lakers are the Lakers. Even fading stars, they always seem just have one more run in them as a Laker. Some players are an exception, Dwight Howard is the perfect example. But mostly you see players like Cedric Ceballos, Lamar Odom, Elden Campbell, Rick Fox, Andrew Bynum all excel. Even some one year players like Caron Butler and Trevor Ariza come to the Lakers for a year and then go off and do big things elsewhere. So with that, I'd love to see Beasley. I understand the reasoning behind not signing him, but I think you give him a chance to wear that gold and purple and you can see if he responds and excels like many do.

Lakers were supposed to reload.  They don't rebuild right?

well at certain points in the recent past NIK has had Kevin Love, Carmelo Anthony, Russell Westbrook, Luol Deng and fuckin Michael Jordan himself as coming to the Lakers....why?  because the Lakers are "Royalty" and that everyone should put their entire life on hold to play infront of a bunch of front runner LA fans who can't even command an NFL team in the 2nd biggest city in America. that's why :D
Of course they lost their way.  Because the 2 jerry's West & Buss are no longer with them.  And I guess I got the time 2 quickly say why LA don't deserve another nfl team is they love to be frontrunners.  In every sport.  For most of the 90's, 60-65+% of so-cals were on dallas & frisco's bandwagon, then jumped on green bay & denver's bandwagon.  Then they jumped on the rams bandwagon even though Whoregia insulted all the so-cals who actually did like the rams[I never liked them].  I saw way more rams fans after they won the SB than ram fans i've seen from 81-97[10]  That there alone is why so-cal don't deserve another team.  Also showed me that if there was a team full of terrorists, white power hate group members, child rapists & child killers-or a combination of all 4 won the SB....a bunch of these so-cals would buy out their SB gear  >:(  You can call them the ultimate bandwaggoners after that but oh no, they'll tell that outright lie of ,' OH NO, WE ALSO LOVED THEM ALL OUR LIVES TOO!'  And they could be holding their hands on the bible why'll saying that.

I'll admit in the past that I jumped on a few bandwagons, never after the team won a championship.  I didn't know better.  I'll admit to.  But so-cals would rather admit watching kiddie porn with pride than 2 admit jumping on someone's bandwagon.  They're the only sports fans who would drop the steelers if they don't win the SB every year.  Which they did for frisco who LOST the SB.  Go fig.  And now so-cals are frontrunning the nhl.  10-15 years ago, it might be once in a few months I might see someone who likes the nhl or wear their gear but until April-June of 2012-now, whole bunch of people I meet love that sport.  And they most likely had this mentality of the people in these pics.
 

And the dude on the left, I swear he looked perfect for that pic.  Looks & dresses like the average jerkoff bandwagon sports fan that would make fun of you for being loyal to a sorry team.

Byron Scott: Julius Randle looks lost
« Reply #8524 on: October 12, 2014, 05:18:25 PM »
LOS ANGELES -- Julius Randle's debut at Staples Center didn't exactly go smoothly, but Los Angeles Lakers coach Byron Scott expected that from his 19-year-old rookie.

  • Enlarge

Richard Mackson/USA TODAY Sports
Julius Randle is still learning to adapt to the speed of the NBA game, which was evident in Thursday's matchup with the Warriors.
"I thought he was lost, in the first half especially," Scott said. "I thought in the second half, especially in the fourth quarter he was better, but I thought in the first half the game was way too fast for him.

"He's a 19-year-old playing against a good team like that and moves the ball the way they move and have 4s that are agile and athletic like he is? Yeah, I pretty much expected that."

Randle finished with 12 points on 4-of-12 shooting and had seven rebounds and five assists in a little over 18 minutes in the 120-105 loss to the Golden State Warriors. In the first half, however, he made only one of his five attempts.

"On the offensive end I was hesitating and I wasn't taking what the defense was giving me," Randle said. "And on the defensive end I was being a little bit too aggressive. I wanted to get up and disrupt their rhythm, but it took me out of my rhythm and I have to learn how to adjust. Games are being called tight and I was playing a little too aggressive."

Kobe Bryant, who made his NBA debut when he was 18, said Randle's reluctance on both ends of the floor is normal, and Bryant has been working with Randle on getting acclimated to playing in the NBA.

"He's getting his feet wet," Bryant said. "He's still getting used to the NBA game and the speed of the game. The biggest thing for me is to see him trust his jump shot because at this stage of his career it's important for him to start working on expanding his game early -- facing up and shooting the ball."
