Being the captain and leader of the team he needs to set the tone if guys aren't doing their job...even if its him who is also slacking. He needs to pick up his D and stop focusing on scoring by himself. 30+ points and no D and were 1-8. With Nash out and now Pau he has to step up his leadership and SHOW guys what they all have to bring every day on D...not just score 30+ on O and say he did his job.
I want him metta and dwight to destroy on D this roadtrip and get guys to buy in and do the same and bring 100% effort and energy from tip off to the end
This post is right on the money, and I agree 100%. He needs to set the tone, especially on the defensive end and he's not doing that right now.
If we want 50 wins for the season (which would get us the 5th or 6th seed), we'll need to go 41-20 for the rest of the season. That's doable but hardly good enough as it means we'll play every single series without HCA.
If we want 55 wins, which would probably be adequate for one round of HCA, we'll need to go 46-15. Big reach
So basically this team has dug their own grave. If they expect to win a championship having to play essentially perfect basketball for the rest of the regular season and dominate in the playoffs without HCA...yeah I just don't see that happening.

She thinks the 03-04 Lakers got off to a bad start, first she said they were 18-20 and now she's saying they were 9-14 but still got to the Finals when what actually happened is they started 18-3. She's actually talking about the 02-03 Lakers which got booted in the 2nd round. It's kind of ridiculous that they can't fact check such simple statements.
is she hot though? must explain why she still has a job?
Not one bit lol
She actually just corrected herself now after the break, I guess she's checking CL
And dumba*** Mark Willard was trying to pass it off like it was no big deal even though saying the Payton-Malone Lakers started off poorly when they actually didn't is a pretty egregious error.
