  1. Delusional. Magic resigning showed how dysfunctional the Lakers really are from the top all the way to the roster. David Griffin is going to New Orleans so he can't save you. The Lakers are fucked.

  15. Richard Jefferson & Damon Jones are LBJ spokemen posing as unbiased sports personalities…LBJ had his era no one really wants LAL to win a NBA title with LBJ except LAL fans, LBJ media puppets and ESPN who sells LBJ/Lakers storylines like medicine water…

    Lebron: Yes

  17. Seen how quick R.J stopped laughing after that coach killer statement… lol

  18. I think Mark Jackson should be the next coach

  19. Why don't they make Lebron player/coach, ala Bill Russell, would save a lot of drama and Lebron can put his money where his mouth is.

  20. Luke got a raw deal. He would have been better off coaching a Laker team without Lebron and with a healthier, more dependable Julius Randle. Instead, he had to "coach" one of the best players in NBA history who was also in his draft class. That dude was not going to listen to Luke. And Lonzo couldn't develop because he was hurt most of the season.
    Now we'll see what he can do in Sacramento – Fox is better than Ball, Bagley can be better than Ingram, Hield is currently a better shooter than Kuzma. The Kings will be interesting next year.

  21. Magic mess up lakers👌he traded young and good players 😡

  22. It's time for Jeannie to step up and bring them the big gun Phil Jackson to guide Lebron and his posse. Of course Lebron is comfortable manhandling the low IQ Ty Lue–We all love to be comfortable. But the Pat Riley/Phil Jackson type can't be manhandled, they take no bullshit and they are the master of masters in passive aggressive stance. You want to go down swinging, then these type of guys always go swinging their best punch. There is no one left, this is the last ride for Lebron at the final stage of his career to have that one last opportunity to be coached by a true great–The one who really knows how to coach.

  29. Magic Johnson leaving means nobody else left for Lebron James to respect. 😀😀😀😀
    That means Lebron James has all of the leverage because Rob Pelinka is new at his job.
    Lakers will beat the Sacramento Kings because SPOT-UP SHOOTERS ARE COMING.

  31. Best thing about the Lakers not making the NBA Playoffs is that Youngbloods GOT EXPOSED for who they are during that New Orleans Pelicans trade rumor

  32. That feel when the media talks about your team even though we're not in the playoffs. Go talk about the teams in the playoffs, just a suggestion.
