    lol I actually want to win games. not making the Playoffs with this team, but at least put the young players in a competitive situation/environment unlike right now where we're poised to break Byron's 26 game losing streak.

    i'm advocating for byron scott to play russell especially in games wherein our chances of winning is very slim.


    when kevin durant and westbrook were starting in the NBA, OKC started the season 1-14, they fired their coach, then proceeded on to win only 30 games. the next season, the won 50 games...

    Iím not trying to compare the 2 boss I just want them to be put in a position where they can succeed, Right now Clarkson and Randle looks ready and the Lakers should try to maximize them bahalag mag cge na ug isolation clang duha as long as theyíre consistent enough we can ride on them all season long. And Brown whoís pretty old for a rookie ky halos ka edad raman clang Harrison Barnes ug Kawhi Leonard might be able to help immediately if tagaan ug chance, ky di jd mag silbi e dungan si Russell ug Kobe, Kobeís Legs are failing him mao yaya na kaau mo rotate on defense we need someone nga maka cover up sa tiguwang in terms of defensive rotation but Russell canít do that as of now ky medjo slow sd defensively, Rim protection is not a problem ky naa si Hibbert and Randle was pretty good in defending passing lanes so we have the tools to be a good defensive team if ma utilize lng ug tarong.

    Russell can be very effective with the 2nd unit, we saw some glimpse of it in the preaseason, katong mga pick n roll niya with Black or Bass was very effective and ma limit sd ang isolation plays nila Nick Young ug Lou Williams. I have no doubt on Russellís potential, I know he will be very good in the next couple of years but right now the team needs to win games and Scott needs to play the proper combination of players instead of forcing Russell to be Rookie of the year.

    russell needs to handle the ball to be effective... when he is with the 2nd unit, the ball just stops with lou williams and/or nick young.

    i understand nga ganahan ka mohatag ug chance ni brown... but i don't think it should be at the expense of d'angelo russell. russell is the 2nd pick in the draft... he is the reason, why the losing record last season is tolerable for us fans. i think he should be given the priority to develop. kobe is not playing well, perhaps his playing time should be cut in favor of brown.

    I am also in favor of cutting Kobe's minutes a bit just to give way to Russell, Clarkson and Brown. Just a little bit though and just at least the first half of the season.

    I really hope Kobe would be willing to play back-up to DAR as a point guard. And if the games are close towards the end, Kobe, Clarkson and DAR should play together.

    i don't like byron's decision making. katong dula against timberwolves, iyang gihamong point guard si clarkson, unya si russell ang gihimong shooting guard. wala gyud ko kasabot ngano ingon ato iyang choice nga gihimo. gi-draft si russell sa lakers, tungod sa iyang point guard skills, then inig sugod sa season... padula-on na hinuon ug shooting guard. hahay... asa man tawn ang utok ni byron scott.


    update: oh my gaahhhd! wala napud gipasulod si d'angelo russell, bisag siya ang pinaka nindot ug shooting percentage sa team. lakers leading against brooklyn

    Even if the Lakers won this game the starters just can't compete, the Lakers were down 17-6 with the starters with only Clarkson & Randle scoring those 6points until Black and Williams came in.

    the sound of the game feels like it was played in LA... a lot of lakers fans came to watch. i would have wanted to see d'angelo russell play the last 2 minutes of the game. murag nahadlok si byron scott, mao to iyang gipulihan si russell.
