Well, things in the NBA appear to be heading toward starting the completion of the season in Orlando to empty seating. The major holdouts to playing on the Lakers were Howard and Bradley. With the threat of Cousins re-signing and playing, Howard has changed his tune and will play. That leaves Avery Bradley who I suspect will play when he gets a whiff of getting game checks and sech again.

Yeah, I read where the Lakers said that they are confident Dwight will play. But they were "less clear" with Bradley.

Bradley out.

Significant loss as he's one of, if not, the best perimeter defender we have

Howard is playing and Bradley is now opting out. Thus, the rumors that the Lakers are contemplating signing JR Smith. Smith is not needed because we have Caruso and KCP. Cousins will not play in Orlando because he fears the same thing will happen when he rushed back from injury to play with the Dubs. Now talk of Nerleans Noel is surfacing because Cousins return to health is becoming very suspect and not worth his contract for a lot of reasons.

Schedule:

7/30: vs Clippers
8/1: vs Raptors
8/3: vs Jazz
8/5: vs Thunder
8/6: vs Rockets
8/8: vs Pacers
8/10: vs Nuggets
8/13: vs Kings


Honestly...that's pretty tough. Might shuffle down a spot in the standings. Have to beat the Clippers first thing to prevent them gaining ground

Smell that? Haven't smelt that in awhile. I'd say since March. Smells like victory

The bubble Lakers are a complete joke. They will lose in the first round to Portland.

Looks like the Lakers kept the wrong young player as Ingram just won MIP.

They should’ve traded Kuzma instead.

NO wanted Ingram. They weren't going to do the trade without him.

they said they wanted Kuzma as well, and the Lakers said he wasn’t available.

Yeah, they want everything. We held Kuzma out. They knew they couldn't hold Ingram out and still expect to get Davis.

I think you are right ALR. Kuzma is just stuck in timidity and inconsistency right now. He just will not take the next step, it appears.
