portland blowing it up.

have to think lillard is available. was philly's posturing with harden and the nets just a rouse to nudge portland into action and get the guy they've wanted all along?

I'll take Lillard to Bucks for $500, Alex?

PS. I know that won't happen.

Opening sentence:

Quote:
A troubling loss to the defending champion Bucks on Tuesday night led to an uneasy admission within the Lakers' locker room: The roster is not working,
So, our beloved Lakers have just now figured out their roster construction doesn't work.

But us average ordinary every day dudes (and dudettes) figured it out the day the Westbrook trade was announced.

Interference for the win.

It really took being 3 games under .500 in February for them to figure out that their roster isn't good enough?

we're finally talking Lakers.

Can they? Yes. Will they? Depends on two things. Health, and whether or not LeBron is willing to defer to Russ.

I would guess no to both.

I got to witness Russ up close and personal last season. He's electric. His energy is infectious. His shot selection was better. But he absolutely needs the ball in his hands. For half a season last year Brooks split the primary ball handling duties between Beal and Westbrook. Beal Les the league in scoring - and the Wizards sucked.

After the break he gave Russ full reign, and the team went on a crazy run to sneak into the playoffs.

Russ is not capable of playing off the ball. He can't shoot for shit. He's a dynamic force when he's the primary decision maker - and next to useless when he's off the ball. He also can't guard anyone - which will be a huge problem come spring.

LeBron has shown he can play off the ball when he was with Miami - and he was at his most dominant. How they're able to balance that - and whether LeBron is willing to defer - will decide how good they are.

LeBron is better than Russ, so it seems silly to ask the better player to defer - but Bron is still useful off the ball, Russ is useless. It's going to be fascinating.

One huge red flag about their winless preseason is just how damn slow they looked on defense. I mean they're starting DeAndre Jordan, who couldn't get off the bench for a Brooklyn team riddled with injuries last year.

They could be good, or they could be the Nash/Kobe/Howard Lakers... which is the correct washed Lakers comparison (not the Karl Malone Lakers, who would have won a title if not for Kobe's rape trial season ending with him jacking crazy triple teamed shots when Shaq was destroying "hall of famer" Ben Wallace. But I digress)

There's over 20K of them now on Woj's tweet, so I assume that Harden is one of them?
