    You may get another couple of games of Lakers fade value before people get hip to the hype. Lakers have no idea how this team is supposed to play together.

    The dysfunction is real.





    If you or a loved one have been betting or watching the Lakers , you may have important legal rights subject to time limits. You may be entitled to compensation

    I pay zero attention to college basketball and the draft these days after having much less time with a kid now.

    Seeing Evan Mobley for the first time ever tonight and already think he'll be a star. Cleveland was smart to not extend Sexton, should make this guy the franchise priority immediately.

    Also, Hornets are a great watch. Fun blend of LaMelo, other talented young guys and steady vets.

    Ya, he’s been really good for his first 3 games considering he’s so slight. He just does very little bad. Everything is raw on offense. He has an intelligence to his game though and understands positioning and spacing better than any of these shitty vets. Everyone is of the mind to strictly build around Mobley at this point and salvage whatever out of the Sexton situation. This next five games are going to be a brutal learning experience for him. I’d guess without looking they were like 1-16 against the west last year with an average loss of 20 points. They were even losing to Minnesota. I saw the line was 10 against Denver. I never bet against them, as I want to cheer for a win, but it feels like they lost last year by 30 against Denver in both matchups iirc.

    It’s early, but this Lakers experiment is unreal bad. Like worse than worst case scenario. I’m sure they’ll figure it out, but who knew their only win including preseason would be because Melo carnied them? Their starters were like -10 on the court. Melo salvaged their first win. RWB has the ball in his hands too much and they are so redundant when Lebron having the ball in his hands is so much better. I mean through three games he’s still shooting 15 times a game, had made 1 three for 9%. Just horrid. They need to stagger his minutes so he’s the sixth man. It’s early, but it looks bad in a way that doesn’t look like it’s ever going to be good short of some changes.

    Only four players are returning from last year. Basically they blew up the failteam surrounding AD/Lebron, and are starting with a whole new supporting cast.

    I liked Ariza during his first go-around with the Lakers, but we're in the 2020s now, not the 2000s.

    This team should be a good deal better than last year's version, especially if AD/Lebron stay healthy, but it's not going to be without a lot of drama.


    I had various debates with people during the preseason who told me this was going to be a great team, and everyone would learn to play together.

    Uh huh.

    I faded Lakers vs Suns last matchup. It was a pk. Lulz. 30 point beat down with fights and dysfunction. I then started fading upcoming games and ended up accidentally betting Nets -1 vs Lakers on Christmas.

    Nets are a different dysfunction.

    Shocker tonight. Cavs laid it on them. Jarrett Alllen is really playing out of his mind. Denver had a cold shooting night. Kevin Love played the best game I’ve seen him have in yearrs Team is fun to watch. Two good defensive performances in a row against two pretty good offenses in Atl and Den

    Bill Simmons was very high on the Cavs in his preseason pod. I thought about taking their team over (37 wins I think) but ultimately didn't. There was a lot of extra juice I didn't want to lay.

    They're talented, and everyone kind of forgot about Jarrett Allen once he ended up in Cleveland. He was great on those Nets teams and well deserving of the contract he got, which many considered an overpay iirc.

    Will they end up 'good' this year? Probably not, but theyll be fun and could see them in the play-in tourney as an 8-10. Things will get rough for Mobley this year as he's too small but that's normal.

    The East is much more fun this year for the first time in forever. Maybe I'm just sick of the continuity in the West but find myself checking out Atlanta, Chicago, Cleveland etc much more than normal.

    EDIT: Knicks as well.

    Lol Westbrook with that quadruple double with the turnovers, and then references the unwritten rules as why he got ejected.

    Weird, I thought another unwritten rule was not stat-whoring, which he has done his whole career.....

    What a pud.

    Went to Blazers tonight, quietest and smallest crowd I've ever experienced since going to Bobcats/Hornets in early 2010's.

    Normally Moda Center is rocking even for Tuesday night games against the dregs of the East. At least they came on in the second half.

    Mainly went to see Ja Morant in person.

    I watched the game. A lot of the turnovers were him trying to make passes to old players that can't move very well anymore. In one 2 minute span he had 3 turnovers trying to lob it to Dwight, who can't jump anymore. But yeah, him getting the defensive rebound and then leading a break (which is one of his main skill sets) doesn't work as well when noone else on your team can run a fast break.

    In 14 minutes of play Dwight actually committed about 10 fouls, including 2 possible flagrant, but I guess the refs were feeling sorry for him and only called 5. Man that guy is washed.

    Why was the crowd dead? Coronavirus restriction related?

    I was talking to a guy who went to the UCLA/Oregon game at the Rose Bowl, and he said for the whole stadium there was only a few single file lines for everyone to show their Vax cards or proof of negative test, and it was brutally slow and took over an hour just to get through that line. He said the game was actually good, but making it so hard to get in wasn't worth it, and he wouldn't be attending another game until they are done with the check.

    They did check for Vax cards/negative test.

    I could definitely see that getting lengthy but wasn't an issue for me. Crowd was 80% full, very light for the Blazers, but quiet.

    Just judging from you and gut, neither of you are particularly enthusiastic about the team. You’ve done the love Dame but can’t improve thing now for like six years straight. You can kind of guess the season trajectory before it starts. I pick up that on nba boards among Blazer fans. Usually among the most rabid, but kind of tired of the whole win 45-52 games and second round exit thing. Lot of do something, anything, different feel. I’d guess it’s just bleeding over t the fans. Plus I was watching that game as the Cavs were also playing and I was flipping back and forth. Both games were very weird where Dame and Cj weren’t shooting particularly well, probably like high 30% combined, but you were winning through the rare defensive effort and Nurkic and others playing decent. Plus Ja was incredibly sloppy with the ball and many probably showed to see him like you. He was meh. None of the usual crowd pleasers were really doing anything.

    Cavs shot 3/20 from 3 and couldn’t hit a shot and won by double digits. I thought this was going to be a horrible defensive team and somehow it’s now the strength with all the size. The Lakers blew a 26 point lead against OKC which I watched the last few quarters of. Strangest comeback ever we OKC didn’t even want to win and couldn’t give it away. At the end of the night I thought what a weird ass basketball night.

    I noticed on Cavs board it was a little subdued for a big win. Like is this sustainable? It was like there was a full moon last night for all those late games.

    Hopefully for one more game it is. I am snap betting them against Lakers when my book releases line if it is anything more than +4.
