Colin Cowturd before the season: This Lakers roster is younger, more athletic, quicker, longer, significantly better defensively. You’re out of your mind if you don’t think this supporting cast for Lebron is better than anything he had in Cleveland. They will win 55-58 games.” Annnnd it only took him 10 games to flip flop lmaoooo

Its pathetic how week in and week out they talk about how bad the defense is. Then theyl go ahead and make a statement like ‘Ingram is a dissapointment Kuz is the guy” and you wonder if they even watch the games.....Lebron and Kuz at the 3-4 is a complete defensive liability. One thing that these so called “experts” fail to mention after every game.

Toronto has the best players 1 thru 10 in the entire league. The Warriors are top heavy and clearly have the best starting five, but Toronto's first ten players are better than any group of ten players on any team in the league. Toronto's defense and bench may be the best in the league, and they have been together for several years. Toronto won 59 games last year with this team and have replaced Derozan with a better scorer, defender and closer than DeRozan, Kawhi Leonard. THE LAKERS LOST TO THE SECOND BEST OVERALL TEAM IN THE NBA LAST NIGHT. ANY REAL BASKETBALL EFFICIENADO KNOWS TORONTO IS A VERY COHESIVE UNIT DEFENSIVELY AND HAS NO WEAKNESSES OFFENSIVELY. KAWHI IS THE CLOSER THEY NEVER HAD AND IS A MUCH BETTER DEFENDER THAN DEROZAN WAS. WHETHER KAWHI IS ON THE FLOOR OR NOT, THE RAPTORS ARE THE MOST BALANCED TEAM IN THE NBA WITH THE DEFENSE AND SCORING THEY BRING OFF THE BENCH. THIS BLOWOUT IS ONLY A SURPRISE TO PEOPLE WHO DON'T TRULY UNDERSTAND THE NUANCES OF BASKETBALL🤔🤔

Never believed Magic when he said there's no pressure on Luke Walton @ the start of the season. Walton is going to be a scapegoat, because LeBron & Magic don't respect him as a coach (what has he done or shown to deserve the Lakers head coaching job). If Magic wants call anyone out right now, shouldn't it be LeBron? The biggest issue for the Lakers is defense, because last season they were average and now they're one of the worst in the league (a constant theme with LeBron's Cavs teams for both the 2016-17 & 2017-18 seasons).

LeBron is always being a diva. He has gotta know he is dealing with young players. Also he is not playing the best defense himself sometimes as the leader you gotta have patience and be the example. He knew what he was getting into when he came to LA its always everyone else's fault when the team loses and then when they win oh LeBron your the greatest.

I fail to see how any one person can be to blame for everything going wrong with the Lakers. The front office deserves blame for this misfit roster that doesn’t mesh. Luke deserves blame for the poor substitutions and line ups that don’t work. LeBron deserves blame for his non-existent defense. BI deserves blame for his inconsistency game to game. KCP deserves blame for doing absolutely nothing all year. Even McGee, although playing incredible help defense in the paint, deserves some blame for allowing other teams bigs to put up monster numbers on a nightly basis. It is far too early in the season to be pointing fingers and looking for a scapegoat, especially when not ONE person is without some blame for the team’s early struggles.

I mean think about it. Luke Walton was a nobody in the NBA who competed with the likes of Rondo and LBJ. As a matter of fact Rondo played him the Finals twice. I'm sure he doesn't respect Walton's opinion whatsoever and doesn't belive the Walton knows more about basketball than him. I'm sure LBJ feels the same way

Now that I think about it, I agree with what Charles Barkley said on INSIDE THE NBA, he said "He doesn't know what the Lakers are doing", it's either making the playoffs, or develop the young guys, it's either one, can't do it at the same time, so it's no wonder Lakers are off to a slow start and plays no defense. I think Magic should trade a few young pieces for legit veteran talent.

Its super unfair to Luke because Lebron has been trash... He has looked worse than his team, and been outplayed by opposing superstars every time... They would have had 3 more wins if the "best player in the world" would have closed out the game... And his defense... omg as a lebron fan I am ashamed, and if you still think lebron is the best in the world, you just like to talk...

To many point gaurds who is the point is it Lebron Rondo Brandon Lonzo Lance even Hart to many trying to bring the ball up they compare zo to J kidd who would J kidd be with out the ball what the point suppose to do u nt going to take the ball out of Chris Paul 75% of the game then ask him to produce need to let Zo do his job or Rondo or Lebron bring the ball up mainly Zo or Rondo

I'm glad Chris brought up Lebron's attitude on the floor, "disengaged, disgusted", because that's how he's playing and it lends to what I've ALWAYS said about Lebron's "leadership capabilities"...he HAS NONE! That's why he has always gone to a team that is stacked, he NEEDS someone else to lead when times are TOUGH and things aren't going well. He bought into his OWN hype about "how great a leader he is" and now he's experiencing what LEADERSHIP is truly about. As a LEADER you MUST understand, those you're LEADING follow and pattern themselves after your ATTITUDE, GRIT, HUSTLE, HEART, etc...these are all intangibles that Lebron has never had because he's never had to due to his God-given talents. These "INTANGIBLES" are what truly makes a player GREAT, it's these INTAGIBLES that lift TEAMS regardless of the names on the backs of the jerseys. These ITANGIBLES are the very reason Lebron will NEVER be the GOAT and why (as of now) MJ (the REAL #23) continues to be. #PERIOD

No one wants to carry him anymore, he's done, he's going out like Kobe with a complete irrelevance that lasts the last 3 years of their careers. Lovin it.

Not true Chris Broussard, Luke Walton was not brought in to develop the young guys because they weren't there yet.

Luke is going to get fired. Point 1. Next, he will get a job soon after - a little bridge and gap but not a long time. Mark Jackson will be offered but he may may not take with current roster. Third, Leonard is not going to play with LeBron. What else you got?! Do a story on Denver and Utah as well as more on the Bucks. It’s a big league.

As Lebrons teams are always bad in the beginning. And they all don’t play defense. And he does take over. But he doesn’t get people involved. He’s the player to say I’m the best you should listen to me. That’s cool but if your the best you should showcase defensive roles or trade some players for some defenders that’s all they need. The offense is there

Its interesting how much people dislike Lebron. Every first year team hes ever played on was bad early. 1st year in my Miami, terrible early. Narrative was Can Big 3 coexists. 1st year with Cavs, terrible. Narrative was can Bron and Blatt and Kyrie coexists. 1st year w/o Kyrie, terrible early and middle. Narrative was, was Kyrie appreciated enough. The Laker thing will work itself out.

can't blame brandon ingram when you got 10 other ball handlers. Lebron came to a system where ingram, kuzma and heart were the primary scorers and as well as randle and clarkson who ran up and down the court. Now lebron has came in with rondo and lance and now you want to change the entire system. Like kuzma can be that guy but ingram is your slasher into the defense. Lonzo is just lonzo.

Should have stuck with the guys and let them grow they play better with out the vets u stunting the growth of BI and Lonzo there only 21 years old both have took a step back for Lebron. 1 game the play 20 min the next 30 min no consistency no flow need to let them grow. Should have got Crawford instead of Rondo. Rondo will be a great coach but cant coach and play who the coach Rondo Lebron or luke????
