LeBron Reportedly Staying Out of the Lakers' Coaching Search. Is this Believable? (Spoiler: No)

5/21/2024
Brian's lost his voice, but Harrison Faigen (SBNation) took his place to discuss- after an "Earth 2" victory lap about being "proven right" that the Lakers would be in the Western Conference Playoffs had they listened to him and tanked vs. the Pelicans during the play-in to avoid Denver - Shams Charania's report that LeBron James, despite all appearances and common sense, is not the driving force behind JJ Redick being the reported frontrunner for the Lakers coaching job, even though he's never coached a game in his life. Is this believable? No. Does this feel like Team Klutch trying to dispel a narrative where LeBron gets the blame if this goes sideways? Yes. But here's the thing. The version of events where this is true and Redick managed to jump the line this dramatically without LeBron's push is arguably even less comforting. HOSTS: Andy and Brian Kamenetzky, with guest Harrison Faigen (SBNation) SEGMENT 1: Harrison says "I told you so!!!" and LeBron reportedly isn't pushing for Redick... or any coach. SEGMENT 2: Why it's not believable LeBron's relationship with Redick hasn't pushed him to the front of the line... but also, if that IS true, that's arguably worse. SEGMENT 3: Anthony Davis' voice (spoken, implied, or otherwise) is reportedly also under heavy consideration these days. Support Us By Supporting Our Sponsors!

Mitchell Staying in Cleveland? Darius Garland an Option? Plus, Chat GPT Hires the Lakers Next Coach!

5/17/2024
Well, it was fun while it lasted. Earlier this week, it was reported that the Lakers were among the teams that were ready to go with an offer for Cleveland star Donovan Mitchell should he become available. After all, there have been persistent questions about whether or not Mitchell would agree to a (very lucrative) extension with the Cavs, or try to force his way out. Thursday, at least, seemed to diffuse that notion. Additional reporting suggested that Mitchell wants to build a winner in Cleveland, something bigger than a team that advances a round each year before getting bounced. Now, all of this could be posturing, and until he actually signs an extension people will wonder... ...but this does seem to indicate Mitchell is more likely than not going to stay in Cleveland. So what's next for LA? On the one hand, there's a legitimate argument to be made that emptying the cupboard for Spida is not a good idea, because the Lakers would be painfully thin and asset free going forward. (There's also an argument to be made for getting him, because he's really good, is not even 30 and isn't positionally redundant to the team's other stars.) But bigger than that, if Mitchell isn't an option, that takes the "easy" road off the table, and demands Rob Pelinka make some harder choices, and do more crafty GMing. Is he up to the job? It might help if the Lakers had a head coach, and to that end, the robots are weighing in with suggestions. In fact, the robots might be responsible for laying out the criteria LA is looking for in its next head man. HOSTS: Andy and Brian Kamenetzky SEGMENT 1: Donovan Mitchell may be off the market before he gets on it. SEGMENT 2: If not Mitchell, who? SEGMENT 3: Did ChatGPT provide the qualities Rob and Jeanie Buss want in a coach? Support Us By Supporting Our Sponsors!

Report: Lakers Ready to Make an Offer for Donovan Mitchell. Plus, Coaching Search Updates.

5/16/2024
The dirt has barely settled on the 2023-24 season for the Cleveland Cavaliers after they lost to Boston in Game 5 Wednesday night, but that means it's now time to talk about the future of Donovan Mitchell. The Cavs star has the opportunity to sign an extension worth A LOT of money to stay where he is for a while, but at the same time, there have been persistent rumors that Mitchell wants out. And if he does, many teams are ready to jump on the opportunity. One, of course, is the Lakers. Reports indicate the Lakers have their offer ready to go, should Mitchell become available. It would like have to be, basically, everything. Austin Reaves, Rui Hachimura, all the picks and pick swaps the Lakers can muster. Cleveland should ask for Jalen Hood-Schifino, Max Christie (rules for RFAs notwithstanding) and everything else not nailed to the floor. Should the Lakers jump at the chance? Would they be better with Trae Young? Giving up much less for Dejounte Murray? Trying use assets to upgrade the depth? They only get one swing at this, if they go for a star. Is Mitchell the right one? More reports indicating that JJ Redick is at the front of the line for the Lakers in the coaching search, this one from Marc Stein. It might be his job to lose? But would the perception that he's too much a LeBron hire keep the Lakers from pulling the trigger? It kept them away from Ty Lue...

Cassell, Borrego Join JJ Redick as Early Favorites for Lakers Coaching Job. Plus, Coach K Advising?

5/15/2024
Things are shifting, at least a bit, as the Lakers begin their coaching search in earnest this week. Reports indicate that JJ Redick is still at the head of the class, but rather than former Nets coach Kenny Atkinson filling the role of "guy with experience as a head coach," the Lakers are more focused on former Hornets/Magic coach James Borrego. And joining them? Long time NBA assistant (and before that, long time NBA point guard) Sam Cassell. Cassell, especially, is a new name for the mix and one that would, in theory, seem to check a lot of boxes for the Lakers. The Lakers are likely to widen the scope of their search as the playoffs continue, and guys like Micah Nori (Minnesota) and David Adelman (Denver) become available for interviews, but who starts the race in front makes a difference. (Just ask teams who begin the season ranked 21st in the college football polls how hard it is to get to the front of the line.) Meanwhile, the Lakers also have a list of qualities they're looking for in their next coach, and it's a very long list... of absolutely obvious things you'd want in a coach. Surely there are other, more technical things the Lakers want, but for the stuff they've leaked? Tremendous airspace for Captain Obvious to fly. Meanwhile, they're getting advice from Coach K. About all their candidates? Just about (former Duke star) Redick? Who's to say? But the notion of the Lakers turning to someone like him is very on brand. HOSTS: Andy and Brian Kamenetzky SEGMENT 1: Sam Cassell has entered the chat. SEGMENT 2: The Lakers want everything (and everything obvious) in their next coach. SEGMENT 3: Coach K, Konsultant?

Trae? Dejounte? How the Hawks Landing the #1 Pick Impacts the Lakers. Plus, LeBron Attends a Cavs Game!

5/14/2024
The Lakers were not participants in the weekend's NBA Draft Lottery. Not directly, at least. Indirectly, however? Yeah, they're involved. Because when the Atlanta Hawks won the thing (despite only having a 3% chance of doing so), earning the top pick, it added an unexpected wrinkle to this offseason. If the Hawks decide to put guards Trae Young and Dejounte Murray on the market, the Lakers are expected to be interested in both. But does winning the top pick make Atlanta more or less likely to put folks on the market? Does it mean the price goes up or down? And which of those guys should they target? And is the answer neither, if Donovan Mitchell is available? How the Lakers view this question philosophically will reveal a lot about the direction they go this summer. Could continuity still be on the table? The Lakers and D'Angelo Russell could remain in a relationship of mutual need. There is no rule that says Rui Hachimura must be traded. They don't have to reconstruct the roster completely. But they could! Meanwhile, Bronny James looks (for now at least) like he's staying in the Draft. How might the Lakers react to that? And why was LeBron in Cleveland watching Cavs/Celtics on Monday? CONSPIRACY THEORY TIME! HOSTS: Andy and Brian Kamenetzky SEGMENT 1: How the Draft Lottery might shake up LA's offseason.

How Interested Are the Lakers in JJ Redick Compared to Other Coaching Candidates?

5/13/2024
The Lakers don't seem to be in a massive hurry to get something done vis-a-vis the coaching search, since two big names are off the market (Mike Budenholzer, Charles Lee), one isn't likely to get there (Ty Lue) and the only other open job belongs to the Washington Wizards. Meanwhile, oft-named candidates are still occupied, whether that's David Adelman (Denver), Micah Nori (Minnesota), or Sean Sweeney (Dallas). Or, of course, JJ Redick (ESPN). Depending on whose reporting in which you want to focus on in any given day—and it should be said, the usual suspects are all doing good work of solid reporting, even if/when some of the reporting doesn't completely match—the Lakers have a high level of interest in Redick, particularly. It's no surprise, given his relationship with LeBron James and what has been a very high profile ascendence into the future coach ranks. Some reports say the Lakers are currently leaning into Kenny Atkinson as their primary "experienced coach" candidate, with Redick as the primary "new guy," even while the most sought after assistants are still there. To be clear, all of this is based on the reading of tea leaves, but it's easy to see how if the Lakers really have put Redick at the front of the line, and really are looking at this at least to start as more of a binary between Redick and Atkinson, then it probably means they really want Redick. Is that smart? Is that how it's going to play out? Lots of questions still to answer! HOSTS: Andy and Brian Kamenetzky SEGMENT 1: Catching up on the coaching search. SEGMENT 2: Are the Lakers in deep on Redick? SEGMENT 3: It's tea leaf season, for sure. Support Us By Supporting Our Sponsors!

Suns Fire Frank Vogel: Could the Lakers Re-Hire Him? Especially if Phoenix Hires Budenholzer?

5/10/2024
Thursday was a busy one on the NBA coaching carousel, which is obviously a matter of import for the Lakers. First, Charlotte hired Charles Lee, a top assistant on Boston's staff and long seen as a name to watch in coaching circles. He was on LA's list, but not seen as a priority candidate by most reports. Meanwhile, in Phoenix, Mike Budenholzer is set to become the Suns' next head coach, again, taking a name of interest off LA's list. And why is Budenholzer heading there? Because former Lakers head coach Frank Vogel was canned. So in a thin coaching market, could Vogel be a real candidate for the gig? Would the Lakers actually consider bringing him back? Should they? What about the other guys? Would Vogel make more sense than a first time head coach (Adelman, Nori) or a first time any kind of coach (JJ Redick)? Is there a philosophical through line that can be identified that runs through any of these guys? And what about internal support? The Lakers, of late, haven't done a great job of supporting their coaches through challenging times. They actively undercut Vogel, and don't seem to have worked to try and smooth out the issues internally when Darvin Ham hit some real bumps this season. Are you confident in the process? HOSTS: Andy and Brian Kamenetzky SEGMENT 1: Frank Vogel is back on the market. Should the Lakers inquire? SEGMENT 2: How Vogel is an inkblot test that helps contextualize every other option. SEGMENT 3: Do the Lakers have the right processes in place to support *any* hire? Support Us By Supporting Our Sponsors!

Did Darvin Ham Make Budenholzer a Tough Sell For Lakers Fans? Would Mark Jackson Make Sense?

5/9/2024
How unpopular is Darvin Ham among Lakers fans? Well, for starters, at least according to a poll on the show's YouTube page, fans would rather see Phil Jackson return—nearly 79 year old projector of intense "these teenagers need to get off my lawn" energy and once insulter of LeBron James Phil Jackson—than give the keys to Mike Budenholzer, who isn't any of those things and has won an NBA title and 50 games in a season multiple times. Why? Ham comes from the Budenholzer tree. It would mean firing the student to hire the teacher. And by about 2-1, Lakers fans favor Jackson in this scenario. Of course, in theory none of this matters. Who cares what fans think, right? Well, the Lakers for starters. And not without cause. After this much churn on the bench, perception is important. Honeymoon periods are going to be very short, and the energy fans project around the new coach will shape coverage and narratives. It's obviously not the only thing, or even the most important thing, for the Lakers to consider, but optics are surely some kind of a factor in their minds. So if Bud is out, what about Mark Jackson, a still-popular option among many Lakers fans? Not a great idea. We explain why. HOSTS: Andy and Brian Kamenetzky SEGMENT 1: Phil beats Bud! SEGMENT 2: Why fan sentiment around the new coach is at least a consideration in El Segundo. SEGMENT 3: Why Mark Jackson is a bad idea. Support Us By Supporting Our Sponsors!

With a Better Coach, Would The Lakers Still Be Playing? Plus, Christian Wood Picks up Player Option!

5/8/2024
As the Lakers were losing (again) to the Denver Nuggets in the first round of the NBA Playoffs, it felt like they were far enough away from the defending champs that the deficit couldn't be placed entirely at the feet of Darvin Ham. Somewhere near his feet? Sure. A good chunk of that blame? Ok. But to the point where you'd say the Lakers would win if not for coaching? It was tough sell. That sales job, however, is looking a little easier now that Denver is down two games to none against Minnesota, including a 26-point pasting on Monday night. Even factoring in an injury to Jamal Murray (playing through a calf problem), the Nuggets are certainly looking a lot more vulnerable, and given that the series was tight (Denver won by a total of 22 points over four victories, and two games came down to the buzzer) maybe the question isn't so crazy. So would the Lakers have pushed the series to six games? Seven? Would they have won? The question encompasses not only the work Ham did in the postseason and individual moves within the games, but also how good his team was relative to its ceiling. And the answer matters. The Lakers need to have a good understanding of how far away they are, and in what areas, from the top teams in the conference. The more an upgrade at can address those shortcomings, the less they have to rely on potentially risky roster moves, or leaning harder into stars that are older and more pose a higher injury risk than those on the competition. So it's not just about piling on to Darvin Ham. Meanwhile, Anthony Davis finished fourth in Defensive Player of the Year voting, in a near-tie for third (Bam Adebayo) and with a huge advantage over fifth place Herb Jones. Does that soften the blow a little, in terms of charges that Davis doesn't get nearly enough respect on that end of the floor? And finally, Christian Wood is reportedly picking up his $3 million option for next season. It's fair to say this season didn't quite work out as hoped, but is it a good thing he'll be back next year? HOSTS: Andy and Brian Kamenetzky SEGMENT 1: Would the Lakers still be playing if they had a better coach this season? SEGMENT 2: Why the answer matters (beyond just piling on Darvin Ham) SEGMENT 3: Anthony Davis finishes fourth, Christian Wood will return. Support Us By Supporting Our Sponsors!

The Lakers Coaching Search Begins. Do They Know Who/What They're Looking For?

5/7/2024
The Lakers have to find a new head coach, meaning there are a lot of decisions in front of them, some small, some large. But even before it comes time to actually start the interviews and begin negotiations with a preferred candidate, the Lakers need to decide a couple things, themselves. First, what do they really want in a coach? What qualities do they value? And then from there, what kind of basketball do they want to play? Different coaches have different strengths and styles. For the Lakers to know if they're getting the right guy, they need to have an idea of what type of team they're trying to assemble, anyway. If the ethos of the organization doesn't match the ethos of the coach, there will be problems. Are those conversations happening? How good are the Lakers at making choices like this when there isn't an obvious choice? Because if there isn't an obvious choice, chances are you'll need to do a nice bit of work to match your team's strengths to your coach's. Finally, the Lakers have basically three categories of coach to choose from. The Budenholzer, Stotts, Atkinson type (i.e. former head coaches), a category of well-respected assistants most people think will make good head coaches (Adelman, Nori, Lee) ... which is basically like hiring from the same category as Darvin. Shouldn't be the reason they don't hire if the Lakers find themselves enamored with a rookie head coach. But what about the Never Coaches Anywhere crowd? That's a leap of faith to say the least.

The Lakers Fired Darvin Ham... But Will Jeanie Buss and Rob Pelinka Hold Themselves Accountable?

5/6/2024
Defenders of Darvin Ham—and while Lakers Nation isn't exactly full of them, there are some whether among fans or in the (generally national) media—have pointed out since the Lakers canned Ham (ha!) Friday afternoon that it's not fair to blame him for everything that went wrong this year. Darvin wasn't "the" problem. The "real" problem was something else. The problem there, of course, is that the framing is too reductive. In any season like this one, responsibility for success and failure is spread around. So yeah, Darvin wasn't "the" problem, but he was "a" problem, and the easiest one to fix at the moment. The time will come for players to be held accountable, as the franchise chooses who they'll try to keep, who they let walk, and who they might use to try and upgrade the roster. But the final question is who holds the decision-makers accountable? Is Rob Pelinka going through a process of introspection similar to the one that led to his evaluation of Ham, and the need for his dismissal? How does that process work in the basketball ops department? And what about Jeanie Buss? Is she holding Pelinka responsible? Who does she talk with to get a feel for whether Pelinka is doing the job as well as he should? What happens if the answers to the questions that aren't about Ham's accountability aren't very good? Or aren't really being addressed at all? What does that mean for the capacity for success for the next guy? HOSTS: Andy and Brian Kamenetzky SEGMENT 1: Darvin got fired because he wasn't successful enough in his responsibilities this season...that doesn't mean he was the only issue. SEGMENT 2: Multiple things can be true at once. SEGMENT 3: Is Pelinka holding himself accountable? Is Jeanine holding Pelinka accountable? Support Us By Supporting Our Sponsors!

The Lakers Fire Darvin Ham! What Comes Next? Who Could Replace Him?

5/3/2024
The inevitable just became reality. On Friday, the Lakers announced that Darvin Ham has been relieved of his duties as head coach of the Lakers. It's no surprise that Ham is out because all signs pointed in this direction, but it's actually pretty shocking that Ham, after doing such a good job building buy-in as a rookie coach with LeBron James, Anthony Davis, D'Angelo Russell, Austin Reaves and Rui Hachimura, saw it all go to pot during his second year. Increasingly, Ham found his decisions being questioned by players, to say nothing of fans and, reportedly, the front office, and kept refusing to take public accountability for whatever struggles. You can't do that in a season that didn't live up to expectations, which explains in part why Ham is out. Still, nobody can honestly say ALL of the problems were the coach. The roster isn't perfect, even if the oodles of supporting players who were injured stayed healthy. LeBron requires season-long maintenance. And there aren't many obvious choices to replace Ham. Lot of pressure on Rob Pelinka to get this right. We shall see what comes next. HOSTS: Andy and Brian Kamenetzky SEGMENT 1: The Lakers haven't canned Ham yet. Why?

Lakers Fans Want Darvin Ham Fired... Now. Barkley Says Blame Players and Rob Pelinka, not Ham.

5/3/2024
WHAT'S TAKING SO LONG? While not exactly the sentiment of every Lakers fan... it's the sentiment of many when it comes to the expected dismissal of Darvin Ham from his gig with the Lakers. After all, reports following LA's Game 5 loss to the Nuggets earlier in the week suggested Ham's job was all but gone. Subsequent reports say the Lakers are still moving down that path, potentially as early as the end of the week. Which, to be clear, is basically today. So if they know they want to do it, and are continuing to leak that they're going to do it... why haven't they done it? Well, one reason might be the fallout from the last time they fired a coach. You may remember the Lakers received some flak, and lost out on opportunities to interview desired candidates, after they leaked that Frank Vogel was out and it was reported basically at the buzzer of their final game, before Frank Vogel even reached the podium. So, hey, don't do that again! But is this way any better, whether to be respectful to Ham or to burnish the team's reputation? What could they be doing, beyond PR and news cycle management? Certainly the Lakers ought to be doing due diligence, making sure they like potential candidates out there more than they like the idea of trying to make it work with Ham. After all, the guy did have a reasonably promising first season before things went south this year, and isn't far off from being one of the more sought after head coaching candidates out there. Maybe they're double checking with all the critical stakeholders not only about whether they're ok with Darvin going, but also what type of coach would make sense to replace him, and whether that hypothetical coach would be available. So maybe all of these things are happening, but if the Lakers have their minds made up, they ought to get it done sooner rather than later. Meanwhile, is all of this attention on Ham fair? Some hoops minds think he's getting too much criticism for how the team's season turned out. And does all of this distract from criticism Rob Pelinka should be getting?

What's Next for the Lakers and LeBron James? Is Playing with Bronny Still a Factor?

5/2/2024
The immediate business ahead of the Lakers is deciding, or perhaps just finding the right time to announce, the future of Darvin Ham. But while everyone waits on that—and the Lakers did in fact conduct exit interviews internally (and away from probing questions from media types)—one could certainly assume that major stakeholders were asked not just about Darvin, but more importantly what worked and what didn't this year, and what kind of coach they'd like to see next season. That would include, at least in theory, LeBron James, whose own future in Los Angeles isn't exactly an open question, but isn't solidified, either. He is expected to opt out of his deal, and while a return to LA is what most expect and is unquestionably the most likely outcome, the contours of that future are very much unknown. Will LeBron demand three years at the max? A full no-trade clause? Is there anything, really, he could ask for that the Lakers wouldn't give? After all, both parties are pretty much tied to each other, assuming LeBron wants to play on a competitive team in a city he likes and get paid what he feels he's worth. The Lakers, meanwhile, can't replace James with comparable talent, so it's either sign him to a deal he likes or blow up the roster and start over. They're not going to do that. Still, the parameters of the relationship might look a little different than anyone expected, because it's worth wondering if anyone thought it would last this long. We've all been having the Father Time conversation for a while now, and LeBron is still chugging along at an elite level. Is he the best player in the game? No, but is he still in that highest echelon? Yeah, probably. It's fair to ask, and LeBron seems to be doing just that, whether his body will be the thing that forces him to quit, as it is with most athletes. Instead, his will to play could be the first thing that goes. Plus, the whole Bronny conversation has radically shifted, following the younger James' challenging year at USC. HOSTS: Andy and Brian Kamenetzky SEGMENT 1: What does the future hold for LeBron? SEGMENT 2: Did anyone expect to be here? SEGMENT 3: How the evolving Bronny situation impacts LBJ's decision.

Will the Lakers Fire Darvin Ham? Multiple Reports Say the Coach is on the Hot Seat.

5/1/2024
The Lakers have a lot of decisions to make this offseason, but without question the highest profile choice is about Darvin Ham. Does LA fire him, as is the broad expectation based on multiple reports? If so, why? For starters, you can look to a few recent quotes, some from after Monday's loss and more in a story published by ESPN following the game. In both, Ham defended himself against accusations of mismanagement in areas like lineups and rotations, focusing on injuries that ruined his ability to be consistent. He defended himself against high profile benchings over the course of the season by asking what you're supposed to do if a player is "sh***ing the bed" for 10 games in a row? Given that the only three guys this really applies to are Austin Reaves, Rui Hachimura and D'Angelo Russell, three of the team's five best players, you can forgive any of them for thinking the coach was publicly, well, pooping on their performance. And while there some truth to what he's arguing, none of these statements were accompanied by any sense of accountability. The poor performance is the responsibility of fate, or players who aren't up to par, or a media that doesn't get it. Never about him and the staff, even if just to deal with the relationship management aspect of the job (which, it should be said, is probably the most important aspect of being an NBA head coach). Still, the Lakers are reportedly engaging in a "post-mortem" to figure out what they want to do. On the surface, the results would seem self-evident: Ham has to go. But if he's fired, he needs to be replaced, which means the Lakers need to know who they want, and more importantly, why. What kind of coach are they looking for. Would yet another first-time head coach be a viable option? Is there a scenario where it makes more sense to try and repair a dynamic with a coach that a year ago seemed much more promising? One good year, one bad for a guy who was extremely well-regarded when the Lakers made the hire? What would "repair" over "replace" entail? HOSTS: Andy and Brian Kamenetzky SEGMENT 1: Darvin Ham sounds like a man with many excuses. SEGMENT 2: What do the Lakers want in a head coach?

The Lakers Lose Heartbreaker, Eliminated By Denver in Game 5

4/30/2024
When those who defend the Lakers talk about how the distance between them and the best teams in the league isn't necessarily that big, Monday's Game 5 loss to the Nuggets, eliminating the Lakers from the postseason, is what they're talking about. Jamal Murray, once again, was the catalyst. He scores Denver's final five points, and they beat LA 108-106. This was a fantastic game, with huge punches thrown by both teams, and massive emotional swings. Both teams were banged up. There were significant injuries during the game, to Anthony Davis first and foremost (a shoulder that functionally removed him from LA's offense for the last 18 minutes or so), but also Murray, Kentavious Caldwell-Pope and for a moment, at least, LeBron. The Lakers lost this game on the margins in many ways - untimely offensive rebounds given up, open shots that needed to go down - and spots that aren't exactly marginal, like nine missed free throws. The Lakers went down swinging, but they went down. Really, the issue wasn't that they lost this game, but that they lost Game 2. Or the opportunity to win Game 1, or Game 3. So now the Lakers have a ton of questions to ask. About Darvin Ham, most importantly. But about the roster, as well. What happens if/when LeBron James and D'Angelo Russell opt out? Do the Lakers package guys in a trade for another star? Which one? Can the Lakers make significant improvements to the supporting cast? Do they run it back and try to continue developing the continuity that has served a team like Denver so well? Is Rob Pelinka the right guy to be orchestrating all of this? It's going to be a VERY interesting offseason... HOSTS: Andy and Brian Kamenetzky SEGMENT 1: The Lakers lose a heartbreaker. SEGMENT 2: Who gets blamed for Game 5? A lot of fingers are pointing to Ham, as usual. SEGMENT 3: What to make of the series. Support Us By Supporting Our Sponsors! Monopoly GO! Get in the game and join your friends.

Will Jarred Vanderbilt Return? Will Jamal Murray Be Available? Lakers-Nuggets Game 5 Preview!

4/29/2024
Playoff series often hinge on the fairly random prospect of who is available and who is not when the games need to be played. You can be the second best team in the East, but if Giannis and Dame are injured, you might just lose in the first round to Indiana. The Lakers, while they've enjoyed a good run of health from Anthony Davis and LeBron James (and this is the most important thing, obviously) they've been unable to really play big in ways that would benefit them against the Nuggets because of injuries. Now Christian Wood is back, having returned for Game 3. And Jarred Vanderbilt has been upgraded from out to questionable for tonight's Game 5 in Denver. Wood didn't play in Game 4. He might not play in Game 5. But if Vanderbilt is available, even acknowledging that he likely won't be fully healthy and certainly won't have his full level of fitness, would Darvin Ham put him in the game? Probably, and with good cause. We explain. Meanwhile, Nuggets star Jamal Murray is going the other way for Denver, having been downgraded to questionable for the game with a calf injury. This situation provides a legitimately tricky set of options for Denver. Play him, and there's a better chance of eliminating the Lakers tonight and getting Murray (and everyone else) rest. (The Nuggets would start the second round next weekend.) Sit him, and while Denver could still undoubtedly win (and would likely still be favored, with the game in Denver) it would significantly increase LA's chances of forcing a Game 6. That would be dangerous, but it would also give Murray until Thursday to feel better. Finally, while the Lakers did get a little bit of weight off their shoulders by winning Game 4 and putting the losing streak against Denver to bed, they still have a looooooooong road ahead of them before they'd be in position to actually win the series. How do you play the mental games required to not get overwhelmed by the long odds at hand? HOSTS: Andy and Brian Kamenetzky SEGMENT 1: What would losing Jamal Murray mean for Denver? What would be the smart play? SEGMENT 2: The Lakers might welcome back Vanderbilt. Should Darvin play him? SEGMENT 3: The mental gymnastics the Lakers have to execute in order to give themselves the best chance at pulling off the miracle. Support Us By Supporting Our Sponsors! Monopoly GO!

The Lakers Avoid Sweep, Win Game 4 vs. Nuggets 119-108, Anthony Davis, LeBron Dominate.

4/28/2024
The Lakers had lost 11 in a row to the Denver Nuggets, including seven straight in the playoffs. 12 would send them home for the summer. And, finally, mercifully, the Lakers got a win. Like it was in the first three games, the Lakers built up a lead. For the third time in the series, they built that lead to double digits. But for the first time in the series, this time the Lakers actually held on. Final score, 119-108. The Lakers send the series back to Denver for Game 5. Lots of positives in this one, from another monster game from Anthony Davis (25 points, 23 rebounds, six assists) and a big finish from LeBron James (30 points, 14-23 shooting) to rebound games from D'Angelo Russell and Austin Reaves. The Lakers finished the game getting some buckets, pushing back late whenever the Nuggets looked like they might go deja vu all over again. Does this put the Lakers back in the series? Not quite yet, but at the least the Lakers showed some pride and proved they could finish a game against Denver. It might not matter this year, but there absolutely could be some benefit going into next year that the streak is no longer a talking point. It sucks the Lakers couldn't break through earlier in the series (specifically Game 2) but it is what it is. Game 4 came with a win, not a time machine. But hey, win Game 5 Monday in Denver—against a Nuggets team that will be far more focused, likely—and things start to get interesting, at the least.

Lakers Lose Game 3, 112-105, Now 3-0 vs. Nuggets. Is a Sweep Inevitable?

4/26/2024
Let's face it, the Lakers put themselves in a position where winning their series against the Denver Nuggets would be very, very, VERY challenging after they blew a 20-point lead in Denver to fall down 0-2. But to even have a shred of hope, Game 3 had to be a win. It wasn't. The Lakers dropped yet another game to the Nuggets, this time by a 112-105 final score. Once again the Lakers got off to a solid start, going up by as much as 12, and once again Denver came back. In relatively short order, the Nuggets ate up the deficit and built themselves a lead. And given how much trouble the Lakers have had scoring points this series, the idea they could make up a 10-plus point gap felt... unlikely. For LA, Anthony Davis, like he did in Game 1, did his part and then some, finishing with 33 points and 15 rebounds. LeBron James was solid (26/6/9), but three turnovers—including two in a critical stretch in the third quarter—hurt. But after them? Austin Reaves had the most misleading 22 points in NBA history (hitting four shots and scoring 10 points in the final two minutes, after the game was out of reach). Rui Hachimura was, again, invisible. Five points, two rebounds. D'Angelo Russell was awful, managing to miss all of his shots (including 0-6 from 3). Zero points on the night. Zero! So now the Lakers are down 3-0, and will need to do something that's never been done. Non't know yet if the Lakers have even a shred of belief that they could be the team to pull it off, especially against a team as good as the Nuggets. Probably doesn't matter, but could very well influence whether the Lakers go home for good on Saturday in Game 4. HOSTS: Andy and Brian Kamenetzky SEGMENT 1: The Lakers lose Game 3. SEGMENT 2: The offense, again, failed the Lakers. SEGMENT 3: The issues with the supporting cast this series are stark. Support Us By Supporting Our Sponsors! Monopoly GO!

Did Darvin Throw Anthony Davis Under the Bus (Even If by Accident)? Plus, Lakers-Nuggets Game 3 Preview.

4/25/2024
The biggest headline to emerge from the total collapse of Game 2, where the Lakers allowed a 20-point second half lead to disappear, was after, when Anthony Davis said the Lakers have stretches on both sides of the ball where they don't know what they're doing. This was a very pointed criticism, to say the least. Wednesday, Darvin Ham was asked about AD's comments and ... made it worse. ""I just think sometimes the plays don't turn out the way you think they should. The frustration sets in a little bit. But I don't think it's, for us, not being organized. I think I have incredibly talented coaches all along my staff and we pride ourselves on, whether it's a practice or shootaround, games, whatever, we pride ourselves on being highly efficient and organization. So I would just chalk that up to being frustrated, you know it's an emotional game the way it ended and all of that. But I'll agree to disagree on that one." It hit all the high notes of terrible responses. It was dismissive of AD's premise. It showed no accountability, while by extension turning that accountability back to the players. And third, with that last sentence he basically said his star player was wrong. In public. That he didn't know what he was talking about. It's often very easy to overreact to what coaches say, because what they say to us isn't the same as what they say to the players. This isn't one of those times. Meanwhile, the Lakers need to make some adjustments in Game 3. One of them is finding a way to get Rui Hachimura going, because his performance through two games isn't close to good enough. One potential problem? He's just not getting the ball enough. Rui's touches are way down, relative to the regular season. How much of that is scheme? How much is Denver's defense? And finally, reinforcements aren't coming. Christian Wood and Jarred Vanderbilt? Didn't do contact work at practice Wednesday and while that doesn't mean they absolutely can't play... it makes it highly, highly unlikely. HOSTS: Andy and Brian Kamenetzky SEGMENT 1: Darvin Ham stepped in it. And it matters. SEGMENT 2: Why Ham's comments reflect a problem he's had all year. SEGMENT 3: Rui Hachimura isn't touching the ball enough in this series. Why? Support Us By Supporting Our Sponsors! Monopoly GO! Get in the game and join your friends.
