One question? Didn’t all of you guys sign off on this debacle that will set back the Los Angeles Lakers five years?
The Los Angeles Lakers fanbase has spewed venom this season at these three players for different reasons for the lack of success this season.
- For Anthony Davis, he keeps getting hurt for significant stretches and his tendencies to stay on the perimeter with his reluctance to play center makes him look soft.
- Russell Westbrook turns the ball over like Santa Claus giving gifts to needy children at Christmas time and he can’t shoot a lick. Then there’s the Magic Johnson thing we already covered.
- For LeBron James, the NBA world will believe that all of this was his idea.
Well, it’s time to be the voice of the fans. No longer will Klutch Sports run the franchise. Tell Rich Paul, the moves will be given to him on a need to know basis unless AD and LeBron wants to give him pillow talk. There is a whole lot of money spent on these three and it’s margin call for these three on the investment. Here’s how the meeting will go…
We’ve been looking over your stats and they are quite impressive. Only one problem…it don’t mean a thing without the ring! You can’t be the “King of Cali” being two games under .500. We can see that you are letting go of the rope. Look, Jeff Green absolutely went “Human Highlight Film” on you guys. As the kids say from the first highlight…This you?
The center thing is nice but you have to play defense too. We are all tired of the media marveling at the 19 years in the NBA for your offensive exploits. This isn’t the “Big 3”, you have to play defense too. Body language? Horrid. We get Russ is sinking the ship and we’ll get to him in a second, but leaders do more than apology tweets. Show the Lakers Nation something in the win column.
When you get back, you’re playing center. LeBron showed you how. The NBA world is laughing at you. Street Clothes is part of your immediate legacy at this point. Your sweater collection is quite impressive. We can get you an endorsement somewhere for magazines, but we are tired of seeing them on the bench. The Lakers will turn into the New Orleans Pelicans west coast affiliate when LeBron James retires if you don’t get it together. I’m not Dell Demps. You will rot under that contract. We ain’t trading you when LeBron’s shadow leaves and the heat is on you. As Shaq always says…MAN UP!
First off, you will apologize to Magic Johnson. Anyone that has the audacity to disrespect the greatest point guard in NBA history is one thing. It’s another thing to do it after watching a guy named Bones Hyland score 27 points.
You have 15 games to prove that you deserve the starting spot. If you are not playing well, you will not be on the floor in the last five minutes. We are tired of the missed layups, the shots caroming off the side of the backboards, the sulking, the sound bites, funky attitude that has been brought with your presence. You are not getting traded so relax. No one wants you because this is rock bottom. But guess what? Things can’t get worse because…it can’t.
Sure it is understood, that I might need security because Russ will lose his temper, but here’s where he would get suspended because THT, Austin Reaves and Malik Monk will get those minutes for development.
This concludes Lake Show Life’s special Pulp Fiction style list of improvements for the Los Angeles Lakers. Will the Lakers heed this advice? Nope. Vogel will finish the season and he’s too afraid to bench Westbrook. AD will not play center for more than five games and the chaos will carry the team into the play-in tournament.
Watch my smoke!
