The story from the Los Angeles Lakers’ loss:
If I was Dwight Howard, I would demand to be traded!
There is something personal going on between Dwight Howard and Frank Vogel. That’s it and there’s little to change this narrative from this writer. DeAndre Jordan played like the statues in front of the Crypto.com Arena and his two stints on the floor led to Hornets explosions.
In the second half, Carmelo Anthony was the starting center and eventually, DeAndre Jordan was put back in the lineup. Can anyone in Lakers Nation explain this when this coach preaches…(Checking notes!) DEFENSE! Carmelo Anthony hasn’t played defense since he left New York! By the way, neither of these schemes worked.
- This scenario played out with Marc Gasol…
- With Montrezl Harrell…
- Andre Drummond…
- Markieff Morris…the list goes on and on!
It’s a shame for a this writer who wrote an article two years ago vouching for Howard to be signed.
Now, this same writer is asking for the Lakers to release him and go to a contender because Frank Vogel will keep this petty stuff up for the rest of the season.
Man this Russell Westbrook dude right here!
Before Lake Show Life gets into what Russ did in this game, let’s go back to the previous statements from the Sixers post-game report!
"Watch Lake Show Life’s smoke. The Lakers need Russ more than Russ needs the Lakers… A message from Lake Show Life to Lakers Nation. Russ is here to stay…get over it and make it work!"
There’s a reason why our readers love our post-game reports. We keep it real here!
Russell Westbrook had 5 points on 1-3 shooting at halftime. He had a career-worst plus/minus ratio of -27. Then something funny happened.
Brodie showed up and barring some help from Carmelo Anthony in the third quarter single-handedly DESTROYED the Charlotte Hornets in the second half. He gave everybody in Buzz City business cards dropping 30 points to bring the Lakers back to the brink of winning this game. He did not quit, he would not let his teammates quit and showed the NBA world that he is not done yet.
Russ finished with 35 points (12-23 shooting!), 5 assists, 4 rebounds and only one turnover. The biggest contribution was his lightning pace that turned the entire game around early in the third quarter!
One more thing to ponder…notice the other two stars have missed a lot of games this season (No guarantee they’ll play in Atlanta Sunday!) while Russ has played every game this season.
Think about it!
