Watching the game waiting for the Kings pre-game show. Sixers leading by 7 at the moment. I'd honestly sooner watch paint dry.

I can tell the tv experts think that they know the score. I watched one today and the discussion was will the Lakers catch the Clippers for the eighth spot. The unanimous vote was Lebron would lead them to the promised land.

What I found amazing is the Kings were never even mentioned. Personally I took it as we would have a better spot than 8th but I doubt that they are thinking the same thing.

Of course. It has to be somebody not named Lebron's fault.

If I were Luke, I would walk into Jeanne Buss' office and tell her she can take the job and shove it. I'm pretty sure he'd be able to find another job. He's not the problem in LA.
Oh Lebron is gonna get another couch fired dudes a cancer unless he has 2 hall of fame players with him

That "cancer" dragged Boobie Gibson and Larry Hughes to the Finals. And, with Kyrie Irving and Kevin Love both injured, he dragged James Jones and Delly to the Finals.

And I'd wager that there's not a single person who's accusing James of "getting" Luke Walton fired who can make a salient case for Walton keeping his job.

.... LeBron may be annoying as all get out and a coach killer, but he’s not the problem with any team.

He dragged a team with 12 wins this year to the NBA Finals last year.

They were sitting comfortably in a playoff seed when he went down, right?

I love to hate on the Lakers... LeBron annoys the hell out of me, even more so now that he’s a Laker. He isn’t remotely the problem in LA.

Watching the gd lakers collapse is delicious, even for ex-Kings fans. But putting that on LeBron is preposterous.
You’re acting like they were terrible last year they were on an upward turn decent record for a rebuilding team with injuries.

Insert Lebron and the drama he brings everywhere he goes all I a sudden Walton isn’t a good coach. Hell they were the 4th seed to injuries hit again and the drama king started the bs drama and now there here

Their best player from the 2017-18 season went to New Orleans as a free agent, and their three-point shooting, floor-spacing, rim-protecting center signed with Milwaukee as a free agent. Let's not pretend that the team that LeBron signed with bears any resemblance to the team that won thirty-five games last year.

They were the fourth seed until LeBron got injured.

They were 35 wins last year? Assuming that their rookies including the previous year's #2 overall improved a reasonable expectation would be a 2-5 win improvement so right around 40 games?
The math is not that simple. A lot of teams tanked last year from the get go, while Lakers played to win. This year tanking probably started for a couple west coast teams after all star break.

And, by the way, Walton isn't "all of a sudden" a bad coach: he was always a mediocre-at-best coach. He got credit that he hadn't earned for his role as IHC in Oakland, because that Warriors team basically coached itself.

There's also that: the gd lakers were playing to win while a lot of teams around them were trying to lose, because they'd traded away their draft pick.
