Saw this in the comments of a Yahoo sports article:

>Jeanie Buss needs to fire Magic & Rob, hire a GM who has experience, trade LeBron and hope to get a lottery pick with a chance to draft Zion Williamson!!!

It's gonna be funny this offseason and next season if/when the Lakers fail to sign another star and get stuck getting whatever garbage players Lebron is still friends with.

Rondo got pissy and quit playing the one year he played in Dallas. Glad to seem other teams that gave him a chance after that getting what they paid for.

"While Buss has been an ardent backer of Walton, she has also empowered Johnson, who has been less resolute in his support. His efforts have all worked against his coach rather than with him. After delivering James in July, Johnson ignored the pleas of the coaching staff that he retain Brook Lopez and Julius Randle. Instead, he signed controversial and limited journeymen JaVale McGee, Michael Beasley and Lance Stephenson."

I love when a team has a dumpster fire season and the finger pointing starts even before the season is officially over. That's when you know people are getting fired.

This has been a rough season to watch as a Lebron fan.  :snoop

Which is part of the reason for my lack of posts in this thread.

Unfortunately its hard for me to see things improving that much. It's basically the Kobe 2.0 situation. Star player on big contract on a crappy team. That's not exactly the hot spot free agent destination.

This is why I wanted him to go to philly. Those young guys are ready compared to the Lakers who are seasons away. The decline process has begun yet he still has to do all the heavy lifting on a squad like the lakers.

When Zion Williamson goes into beast mode I can see those comparisons to younger LeBron. Only plus like 70-80 pounds.

He's got that same absurd hard dribble move that LeBron and Kawhi have where dudes can't take it away but desperately try for some reason even as they're being knocked away from the force of the body hitting them.

With the playoffs already out of the picture, LeBron James and the Lakers played for pride in Sunday's 111-106 win over the Sacramento Kings -- and to appease the mythical basketball gods.

"I would never cheat myself," James told Spectrum SportsNet in his on-court interview, after recording his eighth triple-double of the season (and 81st of his career) with 29 points, 11 rebounds and 11 assists. "I know we're out the playoff race, but if I'm on the court, I'm going to play how I play, and I play to win. So, I will never cheat the game.

"There's such a thing called 'game gods.' And they're watching no matter what you're doing, and it's our obligation to go out and be a professional, and that's what I'm about."

After the contest, James expounded on his approach for the 32-41 Lakers, who snapped a five-game losing streak.

"When I'm on the floor, I've got to play the game no matter what our circumstances is, no matter how many minutes I'm out on the floor, through the basketball gods, I've always respected the basketball gods," he said. "If I'm on the floor, I've got to try to play as hard as I can or do something to affect the game and not cheat the game. So, if I'm on the floor, if I'm in uniform, then I've got to try to make things happen.

"Not saying I'm going to make every shot, not saying I'm going to make every play or not have any turnovers. But just try to make an impact on the game and, like I said, I was on the floor tonight, and I was able to make a couple plays to help make our team win."
