    Agreed, it's looked really bad so far. It doesn't help that Lebron was out for so long. We have to hope that now that he's back they can start to gel as a team quickly. But clearly the defense just is not there. And the outside shooting is horrendous. That's not a good recipe for winning games. It also kind of scares me that AD can't lead the team to more wins when Lebron isn't there. For a guy who is so extremely talented it just doesn't translate to wins without Lebron. He and Russ should have been enough to keep the team above water. THT was a bright spot until tonight. It all really makes me wonder what will happen after December 15th when teams really start thinking about trades. Do the Lakers ride it out and hope the chemistry happens or do they pull the trigger quickly? Tough to say right now.

    Turnovers too. We are giving up possession after possession. We had perhaps our easiest stretch of games this season, and we got torn apart by teams like okc twice.

    I think we are going to have to dump Westbrook in the summer. He will enter the expiring year so he will have good trade value hopefully. 45mill expiring contract is alway valuable!

    I was wondering that too. But I also wonder how that works exactly. It was Lebron and AD who wanted Westbrook to come to LA. They chose him over Derozen and Hield. Those deals were basically done and then they put the hard recruit on to go this direction. Would Lebron and AD turn their backs on him? Or do their ego's think they just make it work somehow? And that's assuming they don't make it work this season. The three of them haven't been on the court together a ton yet. So who knows. Maybe they turn it around. It took Wade, Bosh, and Lebron a bit to get going in Miami. And they were much younger then too. I think over the next 10-15 games we'll see what this team is as long as the 3 of them are out there. And if it looks bad I don't know if they wait until next season. The time to win is now.

    I expect Vogel to get the blame first if we don't significantly improve by mid-season and Fizdale to take over. Fizdale is an even worse coach than Vogel, but I don't think LeBron knows that. Eventually, LeBron/AD will realize Westbrook doesn't fit & move him elsewhere in the summer..

    I think we will make the playoffs ultimately if LeBron/AD stay healthy, but I don't have high expectations to get far. Perhaps even 1st round exit. It feels like 2012-13 all over again. That team at least was a very good fit on paper, but this year's team simply doesn't make much sense from a personnel standpoint.

    Looks like the Lakers may move Rondo to the Cavs. Since Rubio is out for the season it makes sense. Then they open the roster spot to sign Stanley Johnson is the rumor.

    That's fine if we can get a 2nd round pick out of it. Rondo may be finished anyways
