    Doesn't mean a thing really and the Bucks are looking good - but it's about those shots and if the Lakers have enough players to step up in the playoffs, they are going to be tough to beat

    McDonalds doesn't employ anyone full time - 4 to 6 hours per day at the most - and Down Syndrome Adults like Buck only get a few hours - This information is based on the ones I have audited in the Southland which is most of them since the vast majority of them are owned by 5 or six corporations - lol

    Watching them against the Celtics, they had best find some players that can play more than 28 minutes without needing an IV and oxygen. That, and the acting like you were just hit with a sledgehammer won't cut it in the playoffs. That call at the very end of the game was a Kobe Bryant Memoriam when Tatum made that 3 and it was called off because Caldwell-Pope was holding his throat like Tatum had just slashed it. Pure bullshit home call and the Lakers get a 114-112 win when it should have been a 115-114 loss.

    That and the Celtics didn't have Walker at PG and had to use Wanamaker. The Lakers better beef up if they expect to get by the Rockets and Clippers, let alone the Bucks or Celtics in a seven-game series.

    lol

    I was wondering when Celtics fans would get around to blaming the refs.

    I didn't blame a ref. But it was a lousy homer call.

    Not really. I agree that KCP "sold it". But it was a clear foul that likely gets called whether KCP sold it or not.

    When they showed the replay, the commentators said as much.

    Nope, didn't blame the ref at all. lol

    itll be funny when the "little brother" Clippers oust the Lakers from the playoffs and continue to be the premium team in LA, which they have been for the better part of the last decade.

    it is also funny how much the Lakers were shopping Kuzma- trying desperately to find a better fit at the deadline.

    Talk about letting a guys value fall. Where kuzma was 2 years ago compared to where his value is today is astounding.

    they offered Kuzma all over the place- Sacramento, Minnesota, New York, etc.

    Its funny how what i said would happen - of course happened---- LeBron got rid of all the young guys/draft picks---- and Kuzma is the last one they are trying to move for guys that are a better "fit" with LeBron--- and it should not surprise anyone that they focus on guys that have the same agent as LeBron in some of those talks.

    The Kings, even though Bogdonavic is on the last year of his deal- didnt hesitate to say "no" to a Kuzma deal for him.

    2 years ago Kuzma's PERCEIVED value was much higher.

    Yeah... Kuzma will be restricted FA this summer and most probably wants out of the circus... He hasn't signed an extension and obviously this causes uncertainty for other teams to chase him and pay the Lakers during the mid season.

    They probably will have to move him on a "sign and trade" this summer in order to get the best they can instead of losing him for nothing, because with the twin clowns joining the circus this summer, there is certainly no "room" for Kuzma to co-exist there...

    What is so ironic about that - is the Lakers Nation said that the Lakers over-came "poor officiating" To beat them less their best player - So it was poorly officiated - I saw that - but many of those bad calls went against the Lakers - looked like a lot of phantom fouls to me -

    So you think Kuzma would prefer to leave the best team in the NBA - that could win a few championships in the next few years? How many times did you mom drop you on your head as a baby anyway?:pound:

    They did not offer him all over the place, but they did make him available and initiated contact with Sacramento - and most likely would have traded him, but when Kobe Bryant died in the helicopter crash - they terminated all trade offers in respect to how devastated the entire team was.

    I guess developing moronic logic is a common thing down there in the zorroland...

    Kuzma would have agreed to an extension already if he didn't want out, or the Lakers would have offered him one if they had him included in their future plans...

    Neither of the two has happened though and the Lakers have added Markieff, which "pushes" Kuzma further back in the rotation after trying hard to shop him before the trade deadline...

    Guess who's brain was damaged after his mom dropped him while in infant age then...

    Never mind the fact that the ball was still in Tatum's hand when the clock struck zero.

    If you had watched the game last night, you would've seen Kuzma and Morris playing together quite a bit. Kuzma is not eligible for an extension until next season. Facts.

    Of course they did... they'll test all they can, to the best they can for as long as they have what there is...

    Yeah that's correct, they still won't keep him though with the twin clown joining the circus next summer...

    The officiating definitely wasn't very good. But it was bad both ways. Sometimes, that's the best teams can ask for.

    The whole point of acquiring Morris was to provide depth at the forward positions and allow Lebron and AD more rest (they previously had at least 1 of them on the court basically at all times). No point in adding the other Morris, unless he's extremely cheap and Kuzma is dealt (and who knows if Markieff stays). The Lakers don't have a lot of money to work with this summer beyond AD's extension, so will Markieff want to stick around on the cheap? A lot depends on how well this season ends.

    Kuzma could very well be dealt in the offseason, as he hasn't adjusted very well to his new role within this roster, but it's far from being a sure thing. Tough to deal a player when he is so cheap on his rookie contract, as you can't take back much salary in return.
