First time in YEARS that we have a competent bench. At this point they're arguably better than our starters. :man10:

Hell...YEAH!!! I know it may be early for statement games, but this was a good one. And the starters got rest for the B2B tomorrow?

That was fun, I mean that was just plain fun. I hate the Floppers so much, so this was a big one for me. I'm just proud of our young guys, they played with so much pride. They clearly hear that we're 'gonna suck' and aren't going to make the playoffs and stuff this season, and for night they took it personal out there. CP3 looked like crap overall IMO, and I am thankful for that. :jam2:

This might be the first Lakers team I can remember where the bench ends up playing more minutes than the starters. I would not be opposed to that :jam2:

This may be the best bench unit we've had since the 90's.

This was great. This was what I was expecting.

I was telling anyone who would listen that this game was going to be close. No one believed me. I'm excited for this team and this season. You're right the young guys are going to be a ton of fun to watch.

I was expecting it to be a close game until the late 3rd, early 4th quarter, and then the Clipps would pull away, because that's how it went last season. I didn't expect the bench to play that well, to carry the preseason over to the regular season in the very first game (these are young guys, some on maybe their last chance, I expected nerves), and to outplay the starters by THAT much. Tomorrow should be interesting, hope those young legs are fresh on a back to back unlike our bench last season.

Fun to watch a team play with great emotion and purpose. Laker game was played for the faithful…now it’s on.
