Lakers are so old, Dwight Howard fell down and broke his hip when AD shoved him.

Wait, there was an altercation between Dwight Howard and Anthony Davis in the Lakers vs. Suns game?

Oh wow. This season's gonna be pretty wild.

DH looked drunk. And then Rhondo with his finger in a fans face? I'm going to have to watch more LOLaker games this year.

I was there and heard it all.

Davis: "Why are you here, exactly?"

Howard: "In case DeAndre Jordan gets sick."

Davis, "But, I mean, this is basketball. Can you ... shoot?"

Howard: "Define 'shoot' in this context."

Davis: "OK, like, dribble, pass, basketball things. Can you do those?"

Howard: "Charge? That's a basketball thing. I can do that!"

Westbrook: "It's so nice to be on a team where I'm not considered the obnoxious bonehead."

Rondo: "SAME."

I’d take DH off the Lakers hands. But apparently everything’s been squashed.

Expand full comment

I wouldn’t. I’d take AD, tho. :-)

99.999% chance Dwight was the instigator in that little pas de deux.

Expand full comment

He was probably mad at being left of the top 75 list, though to be fair he deserved it more than AD.

Yup

Russell Westbrook shot 40% from the floor and that was the highlight of his shooting night. He was 0-for-3 from 3pt and was 3-for-8 from the FT line.

Is D'Aaron Fox really as bad as he's looked tonight?

I might watch every Lakers game at this rate. Like a bunch of drunk toddlers playing with matches in a fireworks factory.

I can't look away.

Why ya gotta hate on toddlers like that?

Expand full comment

What I found funny is that toddlers playing with matches in the factory is a hilarious image, but the toddlers also being drunk? Hahahah is even funnier and makes me want a screening of that short film interlaced with some Lolakers footage, of course as an EOP (I just sort of want to view everything through eop’s, Dune? Lupin? Dave Chappell? Yep, I want an EOP of all of it)

U ain't kiddin

Westbrick will be at an all time low

I feel like Duhwight and Brow will coexist.......only if they start winning

If this teams goes to the lower tier of the WC, then its going to.be a coexist

Lakers should play Reaves more, he's good

Expand full comment

They will. You don’t start like this and not make big changes

The Lakers are so old they can remember when they used to be good.

When Avery Bradley is playing 20 minutes for your team you know the rest of your squad sucks

The reply has a list of like 20 other players who've done it once including, of all people, Steve Kerr

Just looked at the Laker schedule and it's pretty easy for the next few weeks. A game against the Grizzlies, but then 2 games against the Rockets, 2 games against the Thunder, and a game against the Cavs.

So unfortunately, might be tough for them to get into too big of a big hole.

Expand full comment

But if they do drop a few games, it might get realllly ugly...

oh wow I can't tell... are the suns that legit or did the lakers really get that much worse O_O

This game has everything!

Davion Mitchell locks up Donovan Mitchell.

Expand full comment

He’s locked up himself on offense though (in a tiny sample, but .168 True Shooting is not optimal).

Expand full comment

I’ll still take GP2 over Davion, for this season, anyway.

Lol AD and Stuporman got in a shoving match on the bench. Love it.

Right now Jared Dudley is watching from home saying "See? You should have kept me"

It’s so quiet in Staples right now it might as well be empty

Unbelievable.

Vogel is praying that he gets fired 3 games into the season.

Good to see that all is well in La La Land.

Maybe Dwight is upset LeBron didnt put him on the 75th anniversary team (or whatever that was)

With OKC's loss tonight, the Warriors have clinched a playoff berth. I know we want even more, but I think a bit of a celebration is in order.

After the Clippers game, I was thinking about how we would have lost both of these games last season. The Dubs came up just short in so many of those random ending games in 2020-21. Then I thought a little more and realized that last year they wouldn't have been random ending games at all; we would have been blown out. It's been such a pleasure to watch a team that's so much better from what they were putting out at this point last year.

The team that finished the season 15-5 (after Poole and JTA starting getting big minutes) was winning these games.
