LeBron 30-13-7, padding that MVP case
[–][OKC] Kevin Ollie IncaseAce 62 指標 2小時前
With no AD, that MVP case might be unquestionable if it’s holds up
[–]Lakers Looperstooper 48 指標 2小時前
5-1 without AD this season
[–]ResponsibleWarthog10 17 指標 2小時前
he's definitely winning if the lakers get the 1 seed
but that'd be tough.

If lakers is the 2nd seed but AD is out for considerable amount of time i can see lebron winning it
[–]Responsible Warthog10 14 指標 2小時前
yeah for sure. especially if the jazz get the 1 seed because no one on that team is getting mvp of course.
if it's the clippers i could see kawhi getting buzz if he plays better as well.

Ingles 4 MVP, fight me.
[–]NBA aulixindragonz34 1 指標 1小時前
Embiid if the sixers are 1st has a case imo.
[–]Nuggets GoyathlayA 2 指標 57 分鐘前
Only if the Sixers record is comparable.
Right now the East is weak as hell, the Lakers 2nd seed is considerably better than the Sixers 1st seed, AND Embiid has missed a shit ton of games.

Man fuck voter fatigue he deserves it so far
[–]CIark [分數隱藏] 22 分鐘前
Why do people keep saying voter fatigue when he hasn’t won one in like 9 years? Like shit Giannis is the only one who has legit voter fatigue just give Bron his damn respect

Who is the most valuable player to their team? I got 1 curry 2 lebron
Honestly lakers wouldn’t have this sick record without lbj and Warriors would be near the bottom without curry
[–]NBA iRockaflame 6 指標 2小時前
So tough though. You take out Jokic and the Nuggets are going straight to the lottery. Dame, Curry and Bron are the same.
MVP is going to come down to whoever has the #1 or 2 seed and can maintain their stats the best.
[–]Lakers Rager_YMN_6 21 指標 2小時前
Naw, respect to Curry but it's LeBron
Without LeBron we're a damn lottery team, he does literally everything for us on both ends of the floor, even if he coasts at times defensively. There's a reason he's considered the most valuable player to a team of all time due to everything he brings.
[–]Timberwolves pineapple192 18 指標 2小時前*
Without KAT the Timberwolves are the worst team in the league so he should easily win the MVP.
With KAT they are also the worst team in the league but let's just ignore that so we can have something nice.
[–]mapletree23 1 指標 1小時前
embiid's missed games is going to be a blemish on his mvp chances
denver's record is going to be a blemish against jokic at this rate
if embiid keeps sitting it's probably going to turn into who has the better record between jokic and lebron or if lebron can keep the lakers afloat without AD, which for now he has been getting the wins

Anthony Edwards is so special. Also LeBron, Dennis, and Trezz were so good tonight. Dennis is so good when AD doesn't play
[–][ORL] Mickael Pietrus zackarykapowski 85 指標 1小時前
Dennis scores well, but his point guard skills are pretty bad.
[–]Lakers captjacksparrow47 3 指標 1小時前
Lets be honest, Lebron's the pg in lakers
[–]Lakers echoecho25 47 指標 1小時前
I agree but his skillet is one that is useful. Part of the reason he looks so bad is bc when Bron and AD play they like to just hold the ball and it turns Dennis into a spot up shooter. No AD and Dennis can initiate more for himself and he does well. He also works his butt off on defense
[–]good olvj[ ] [分數隱藏] 22 分鐘前
Which is why I wasn't as sold on him as everybody on this sub was when they traded for him. He's had one good season so far, he needs to prove that he can be productive on a team where he has a lesser role but still contribute.
[–][LAL] LeBron James xyneid 8 指標 1小時前
He won't handle the ball in playoffs as frequently. He's the starting PG so that LeBron isn't ran to the ground handling the ball. I'm sure (and hoping) LeBron will resume his usual service come playoffs.
[–][ORL] Mickael Pietrus zackarykapowski 9 指標 1小時前
Yeah absolutely, just hurts not really having another true playmaker on the team. Gasol is nice, but limited. Would be great if Dennis could create more for others and was quicker w his decisions.
[–][LAL] LeBron James xyneid 6 指標 1小時前
Gasol is the second best playmaker on the team and it's saying something about the overall playmaking of the Lakers. Gasol's real value is his BBIQ contribution and spacing the floor for LeBron. Dennis is good at slashing and occasional threes, but he's really not an elite playmaker especially considering that he's replaced Rondo.
[–]MysticKnives 60 指標 2小時前
Edwards is clearly legit.
That second half effort for the Lakers was nice to see, especially when Bron wasn’t in.
Also, with AD being out for awhile, Harrell is a very useful pickup for them.
[–]futureviking3030 7 指標 1小時前
Harrell won the game tonight, just constant positive plays in the second half.
[–]Bulls celsius_two_3_two 2 指標 1小時前
I really like how Trezz feels a bit bad every time he gets a dime from Bron and he fails to get an and-1 finish off of a mismatch. The dude just goes hard to push himself further.
[–]vvrr00 14 指標 2小時前
Lmao everyone were shitting on gasol and he guarded kat well and somehow shot well as well lol
[–]Timberwolves la-blakers 2 指標 2小時前
Has he been on a cold streak or bad for the Lakers? Besides getting old I've generally considered him to be the real deal

I didn't watch this game. Only followed the highlights in the sub, and I swear to God I thought the Lakers would have lost.
LeBron's own ankle breaker, the air ball 3, everything that's been posted about this game makes it look like they were going to get blown out but they actually won.
[–]Yacht Club arcelios 100 指標 2小時前
Some of the posts tonight made me think LeBron is struggling tonight.. especially without AD and any other reliable 3rd option. And the Lakers losing by 30 to the Wolves
[–][LAL] Sasha Vujačić PairedFoot08 45 指標 2小時前
Its been really weird in general lately, we have now won 8 of our last 9 but so much of the discussion has been negative (mainly among our own fanbase)
I get it we arent at our best, but the sky is very far from falling
[–]Lakers ginbooth 10 指標 2小時前
Can't believe how quickly the casuals turn on players. It's annoying AF. The Denver post-game thread had a bunch of comments calling Schroder a scrub and wanting him off the team. I find it easier to deal with idiots on opposing teams than on my own.
[–]Lakers _Meece_ 19 指標 2小時前
It's cause we expected our defense to get worse and our offense to improve, but the opposite has happened, so everyone is frustrated.
Stagnant, league average offense can be painful to watch, because all the other top teams have an elite offense. Makes it feel like your team is missing something.
[–]Lakers NotBrokeJustBent23 8 指標 2小時前
Our offense hasn’t been great because everyone went cold from three. It’ll pick up once we actually hit our shots and stop turning the ball over so much.
[–]Hawks ImgonnawaverwireAB 16 指標 2小時前
It’s weird because it feels like every thread sucks off lebron, but every post I see is anti-Bron/“lakers have issues”
[–]Mystic Knives 21 指標 2小時前
There’s been a so many threads with Bron hate and or salt within the past 7 days. MVP talk threads had so much salt towards him being the front runner atm. This place isn’t really as pro-Bron as one might possibly think. He gets tons of love of course. But he’s got probably the largest amount of haters of any active player

Old Laker fans were rabid Kobe fans who hated anyone surpassing Kobe. Lebron became their hate generator.

I actually Hate that lol. How can you be a laker fan while hating the man who has made LA relevant again. I have to admit, i hated lebron when he wasn't with us but him joining the team saved us from mediocrity and got us our 17 th ring. Now ill fight anyone shitting on the king

Rubio's lack of ability to finish straightforward (for the NBA) layups is pretty bananas.
[–]Timberwolves Skoltrain 4 指標 1小時前
Just scoring in general for him. Every shot feels like it’s gonna hit the front of the rim. Tbf tho this layup was a kinda tough reverse layup but a good
finisher like Dame or Fox makes this 90% of the time

10 shots for Towns is just incredibly ridiculous. Saunders needs canned immediately.

I don't like Saunders much either, but I'm pretty sure KAT is still in recovery mode, he looks a bit out of shape.
[–]Lakers yungtatha 13 指標 2小時前
He sat for a looong stretch and looked tired in the 2nd half. Maybe he still has stamina issues from COVID.

LeBron realizing Edwards was caught up in his own hype and taking the charge late in the 4th was an awesome teaching moment. With the right work ethic, Edwards is a future all-star.
[–]Lakers Apollo611 2 指標 2小時前
He was going off until that charge, then he talked some shit to our bench, and didn’t hit anything after. Learning experience for sure, he’s going to be great.
