    4-1 against Blazers.
    4-1 against Rockets.
    4-1 against Nuggets.

    Lebron IS the conference.

    lakers in 6. sucks as a cp3 guy to get lakers in 1st rd. they definitely have a chance but this team has relied on their depth all year and idk how good they will be vs a really goof lakers defense. they do matchup decently well vs lebron and with bridges/crowder and ayton respectively

    Bridges is way too thin for LeBron. And he’s killed crowder in the past.

    Even a lebron who's 80% of what he was last year stoll is athletic enough to make plays and has a respectable 3 ball.

    Mentally he owns the advantage currently over every player not named Kevin Durant or kawhi. He's played against crowder in practices and against various teams. Miles is not experienced nor strong enough.

    This lakers team doesn't play lebron ball. Lebron actually plays defense.

    The main key is Ayton and AD. AYTON is a great athlete athlete good player but he's not physical and AD can put finesse any big man in the league.

    The chess piece is AD. Lakers in 6

    Drummond I think would be okay with moving to the bench. I would definitely start Gasol then Drummond or Harrell can play whenever AD sits. I would give Gasol 20mpg at C, AD 15mpg at C. Switch between Drummond/Harrell for the remaining minutes depending on what the situation calls for. Ultimately, Harrell might be the odd man out due to size limitation and not being a good defender. Drummond is at least an elite rebounder and has the size/length to fill up the paint when he plays the 5.
    Drummond made some plays on defense that only AD could've made against GSW. Made a crazy recover to block a guy at the rim.

    Although he was way out of position -- Marc Gasol wouldn't have been -- but it's still impressive.

    Also made this good play.

    he chose to violate covid protocols so he could hang out with Drake the other day.

    It occurred before the play-in game. League said it was handled internally, which means they're not going to suspend the NBA's #1 draw. Apparently everyone there was vaccinated/tested negative.

    lakers in 6. phoenix has a nice blend of offense & defense, but la has the two best players in the series.

    Lebron's ankle determines the series. He looked so slow vs. GSW. Hopefully it starts to recover but Lakers don't have a real chance to win the chip with a gimpy Lebron.
