These Nets don't quit.
Once down 24, just forced OT in Washington
Crazy game in Toronto
Ws up 1, under a minute to go, Steph misses 2 free throws? WTF?
No harm done. Let's see if they have enough left for Cleveland
Was listening to a sportstalk show on my way home today and they were saying that Magic waited a couple of days so it wouldn't look like a direct response to Lavar and because immediate "votes of confidence" are often seen as a death sentence.
They were saying that all of this speculation was basically Windhorst listening to league gossip and did not come from the Lakers. Apparently, NBA GM's gossip like old ladies. They said firing Luke isn't on the table.
No shit. @ChiefsLakers67 really came out of left field with that one.
LMFAO at the bench
Both Jeanie Buss and Magic Johnson came out in support of Luke today, but I the first response I saw stated that the Lakers wanted to pay as little attention as possible to it - When that last dude fabricated the story about Fizdale, however, the had to speak up - I can see why I would want to remain silent and not be forced to say if Luke's job is or isn't on the line - They wanted to keep quiet in case they have to dump Walton in order to get LeBron - now they are backed into a corner and will be called liars if they decide to go after Fizdale.
Never did have that channel - not sure why Charter doesn't carry it,
I can't help wonder if the Lakers last 4 game winning streak instead of losing 4 more games helped make the case for keeping Luke another season though
He was never on the hot seat
BREAK UP THE LAKERS!!!!!
No one is ever invincible in this business - but I do think his job is safe for now. The point, however is that the Lakers would have preferred to have not responded to Lavars comments in case they decided a change was needed. Now they would be in the position of explaining why they said they supported Walton when they didn't - Just saying - Anything is always possible now matter how ridiculous it looks
I doubt they do that - but so far Lakersnation says the Lakers wants to trade Randle and Clarkson for an expiring contract
We all know how you feel.
CL67 has Old Timers Disease.....he keeps forgetting he said it.
The Clipps and Bruins, I get that @Mecca but who is the 3rd team under your faves?
That's why the "he said/she said" game with Lavar is a game they can't win.
If they respond to his idiocy, they're playing right into his hands and giving him what he wants.
If they don't respond, then there are those who will read things into it.
But at least by not responding, there isn't anything that can be attributed directly to the team and they give Lavar nothing to respond to. Hopefully, he'll eventually get bored with them not responding and concentrate on running Melo and Gelo's Lithuanian team.
