    Steven A Smith literally said a week ago that the Lakers should trade their entire roster for AD... What a hypocrite.

  • David Tucker 10 days ago

    Boss I agree Totally. Steven A is a prisoner of the moment. He sees what develops and then acts as if it was his original thought. I will give him this, he has always preferred Kuzman over Bi and Ball. When Magic Johnson came on First take he stayed as much to him. Kuz has an undeniable chemistry with Lebron. The Lakers next move is to not go for that third star with the remaining cap space. They should get rotational pieces. They need shooters and a serviceable PG. JJ Reddick, T Ross, Brook Lop...

    Media loves to give Kuzma all the credit. Went to the game last night and Lonzo was easily the most important player on the court despite scoring only 5 points. Lonzo is the real gem the lakers have and the media refuses to give him credit.

    Nobody gives him the credit because of the pompousness of his father. His father created that situation for him, which is really really sad

    Media stay disrespecting Lonzo that man affects the game without being a scorer. Literally runs the offense so everyone can get easy shots and he is a great defender. Once he develops into an efficient offensive player he will be one the best two way players in the game. It would be a mistake trading him.

    Trevel The Critic You say once Ball develops into an efficient offensive player he will be the best two way player. Should you not say if he develops, not when he develops. That development is not a given. He shot right now is funky.and inconsistent. However so was laker great Jamal Wilks’ shot peculiar. . However Jamal’s shot they never tried to alter it because he hit at a much better clip than Ball. Also Wilks made his free throws. That is something Alonzo struggles with big time. As a PG,he na...
