2021-2022 17 TIME WORLD CHAMPION Los Angeles Lakers Thread



Well thankfully these guys are young and should get healthier as the year goes on
The Lakers management has failed them post championship for 2 offseasons in a row. Just a litany of terrible mistakes. LeBron is still dominant but he cannot carry a team to the finals anymore and he needs AD to play at a superstar level every single game. The only light at the end of the tunnel is that they haven't had a chance to get on a run with LBJ in the lineup.

Well, to be fair...along with Lebron - it's all the young guys who have been injured (THT, Nunn, Austin Reaves, Monk).

Lebron has played maybe 8-9 of those games? Yea...I think Vogel's coaching has been the most concerning for me.

Yesterday - he had AD (who was running fever btw) with DJ, Westbrook, THT, and Bradley to start the 3rd.
AD with 4 non-shooters when you have Melo, Monk, and Ellington on the bench. There was no spacing at all obviously.
To me - seems like Vogel is too set in his ways to truly experiment with this team and find the right lineups. He's gonna get canned if things don't get better with Lebron in the lineup.

If Vogel puts 2 centers in the game again - he should be fired at the spot.

I think Vogel should be fired tonight.

I'm not sure who's to blame more, him or management. It's just a poorly constructed team that is relying way too much on veterans who are no longer in their prime. They have zero young talent. THT not looking like who they thought he was. Losing Caruso was big.

Coach is supposed to help his players even if the roster is flawed.

Lebron played like s**t. But, Vogel is dumb asf for once again playing 2 bigs plus Lebron. It makes 0 sense.
This team is a poorly constructed, dysfunctional s**tshow.

To me - it's mostly coaching. Vogel too set in his ways.


That was the game. HBK was healthy last night but Vogel still played Bradley. Bradley, DJ, and Rondo shouldn't be playing any meaningful minutes now. Lakers starting the game with one hand tied behind their back with DJ starting.

Personally, I'd like Bradley and DJ off the team altogether so Vogel can't play them.
