So who would have thought the Lakers would beat the Nets if you knew the following two pieces of info in advance:

25-9-14 Bron
33-20-0 McGee

Like... 100% that the Lakers would win?

That said, we've played our way into the Bottom 10:

.192 New York Knicks (14-59)
.233 Phoenix Suns (17-56)
.260 Cleveland Cavaliers (19-54)
.288 Chicago Bulls (21-52)
.342 Atlanta Hawks (25-48)
.389 Dallas Mavericks (28-44)
.403 Memphis Grizzlies (29-43)
.411 Washington Wizards (30-43)
.419 New Orleans Pelicans (31-43)
.431 Los Angeles Lakers (31-41)
.451 Charlotte Hornets (32-39)
.444 Minnesota Timberwolves (32-40)
.479 Orlando Magic (35-37)
.493 Sacramento Kings (35-36)

Don't know if we can catch the Pelicans, who are on a 1-7 run where all but one of those losses is by double digits. It would be nice if Randle could finally do something positive for the Lakers in his NBA career by leading a team to a bunch of wins... in this case the Pelicans. They play 6 out of their last 8 at homes. We could only hope.

Not a lot of home to catch the Wizzzzzz. Their schedule looks like it doesn't have a lot of easy wins in it.

Big Baller Brand rift emerges as Lakers' Lonzo Ball severs ties with co-founder over money allegations

Never would have guessed that Big Baller Brand would end up being a clusterfuck!

Not surprisingly, LeVar was a dumbass making it worse:

Quote:
According to documents and emails reviewed by ESPN, questions about Foster's business decisions and communication were first raised last fall to Lonzo and LaVar by Lonzo's financial adviser. That adviser, Humble Lukanga of Life Line Financial Group, alleged in an October email that Lonzo's personal taxes and Big Baller's taxes could not be completed on time due to an inability to account for the whereabouts of $1.5 million.

Sources close to the Ball family told ESPN that Lonzo expressed his concerns about Foster to his father several times over the past few months but deferred to LaVar to manage the situation.

It wasn't until this week, the same sources said, that LaVar fully reviewed the email warnings and documents from Lukanga, as he had been traveling overseas with his younger sons in the fall. The sources described LaVar as "stunned" when the emails and documents were read to him. LaVar declined comment but issued a statement to ESPN calling the situation "devastating."

"I've always believed in the best in people. Regretfully, I put my complete trust in Alan Foster to manage my son's business affairs," LaVar said. "At the end of the day, family comes first, and I support Zo wholeheartedly. Together, we will make this right."


Zo needs to kick not only his Dad out of his business side, but also his "manager" D-Mo. He's surrounded by a bunch of people sucking off his teet, including his brothers. Foster is just the first to be caught obviously stealing from him.

This does seem like the low point of James' career. Instead of pulling the Lakers up, the team drove him down.

Woj is saying the Bron will shut it down the rest of the season.

Lots of time for him to rest up and film Space Jam 2.

Three wins out of four likely is what caused the Lakers to shutdown Bron. We're at risk of screwing up the number of ping pong balls.

.184 New York Knicks (14-62)
.221 Phoenix Suns (17-60)
.247 Cleveland Cavaliers (19-58)
.273 Chicago Bulls (21-56)
.355 Atlanta Hawks (27-49)
.387 Dallas Mavericks (29-46)
.403 Washington Wizards (31-46)
.408 Memphis Grizzlies (31-45)
.416 New Orleans Pelicans (32-45)
.447 Los Angeles Lakers (34-42)
.447 Minnesota Timberwolves (34-42)
.467 Charlotte Hornets (35-40)
.487 Sacramento Kings (37-39)
.494 Orlando Magic (38-39)

He did apologize on social media.

It's seem like Laker ownership needs to be changed. The Lakers died with Jerry Buss. Our respect left with Chick Hern & Jerry West. Have you seen their record vs the Clippers over the last 30 or 32 games. I think they have won 4. This year ends with us doing jobs again & sitting our star. Lou Williams was the MVP of Los Angeles basketball this year, and the Lakers gave him away.

Thank god that The Dodgers lived thru there bad owners & regained their respect.--Yohe

I feel for him, but he did the Lakers wrong by doing what he did in the manner that he did it in. We look look like all those teams we've joked about over the years... as in Knicks or old Clippers bad. :(

What hasn't he quit from? Player (x3), coach, announcer, & now GM. Most were short term.
