    We hope you stay for the full clip. The Lakers have been awesome lately. AD has been playing at an MVP level which is a huge part to them winning games. We definitely stress that in this video. But The Lakers improved shooting has been important as well and we believe the two go hand-in-hand.
    PS: Apologies for the chicken scratch lol.

      How would you feel if the nba made 2 points 4 points, free throws 2 points and 3 pointers 5 points? I think the issue is 2 3s are worth 3 buckets.

      There are terrible defensely. Here is the prove 117 pelicans no ingram 115 suns no cp3 or johnson clippers 114 no kawhi 121 pistons no cade 109 no dame and hart and they where tired from playing the previous night. More prove when the offense cools off and they cant depend on there defense the cavs game 2nd half the pacers 4th quarter the blazers towards the end of the game the first time warriors in the 3rd quarter.

    Suddenly Russ looks like an absolutely integral piece to this team. So glad they didn’t trade him for Turner and Hield. I was someone who thought that was a bad trade because of how much they were giving up. I think they just need to figure out a way to flip Nunn and a pick into a knock down shooter and they’re good to go.

      @Jason U how can you put AD at 3rd the man just smoked the Wizards with 55 points and 17 boards and beat Giannis at his own game with 44 and 10 and every game he’s stepping up another level. AD bullied Giannis with 44 points and you still disrespect him as 3rd in MVP. AD is playing like The Best Player In The League Currently Playing Today. AD is taking on A Kobe mindset of attacking and is taking no prisoners. AD will win MVP as he continues to carry the Lakers on his back and win these games. AD is MY EARLY VOTE FOR MVP!

Lebron was happy to hand over the keys to the kingdom but AD needs step up and be this version of himself at all times. He doesnt have to drop 55 but a consistent 30 and 15 would be nice.

      Nice to read all the comments here but surprised not to see a comment about the #1 reason the team is playing better.
      Coach Ham....
      As a communicator, motivator, and team leader, this man grades out at an A++!!!
      As a coach coaching the coaches and running a program, he probably grades out at about a B- because i have to knock him on the defensive side and the awful start to the season offensively.
      As a game manager and leader on the bench i have to be honest and give Coach Ham a D-
      All Coach Ham has to do is tighten and improve his rotation decisions and do a better job of managing the games on game night.
      In particular 1st qtr starts, 3rd qtrs overall, and late games(both with big leads and close games, he is a mess)
      The team is responding to Coach Ham's positivity, energy, vision, and authenticity.
      It was clear from the opening press conference that they probably chose the right "leader" and it helps that that leader also had a vision of the style of basketball he wanted to play.
      It was more than just bringing in the systems he learned while working under Coach Bud, who learned while working under Coach Pop.
      It was tweaking those systems to match The Lakers current personnel(sign of a really good head coach) and being able to have great communication with all the players but in particular the 3 stars.
      He asked AD to play the 5 because that was best for the team, Bron to shift to the 4 because that was best for the team, and Russ to lead the bench because that was good for the team...
      So how are the other 12 Lakers not going to do what's best for the team when the stars are all doing things they would prefer not to do?
      I even like how he is not only encouraging but pushing role players like Walker, Reaves, Brown, and others to shoot/score and be aggressive when they are on the floor!
      Don't defer!
      When you got your man beat, go get that bucket and when you are open, let it fly!

    JJ's right. Shooting makes it easier for your stars, especially when they're primarily paint scorers. You would think that because of LeBron's age (and the speed/durability decline the comes with it), and because of AD's injury history, the Lakers would want to assemble a roster with as much shooting as possible to minimize the load on their stars. But for some reason, they've done the opposite. A recent shooting surge has allowed AD/LeBron to be more optimal over the last five games. The Lakers need to add more shooting ASAP.

    I’m just happy AD is starting the game inside and slowly working out. In last 8 games not many 3s and when he shot them it was later in the game and open. Not forcing the jumper and letting himself find a rhythm by going to the line and being physical so the jumpers come later and easier

    AD did have a better stretch. In 2018 in the middle of the season at one point he averaged 35 a game for 10 games and he averaged 2.6 blocks and 2.4 steals which is ridiculous. He also shot over 50% from the field and that's with only 2.1 turnovers a game which is incredible for any position for a statline like that.

      @B. Rashad they need shooters that bench is not a title contender we can’t hope every night lebron and ad both combine for at least 80 just to win that’s absurd and lots of load for them and they not even a half way through the season you don’t want them to get injuried . Also in the playoffs teams will double team lebron and ad because they have no shooters at all! If Russ stays he will be a factor because in the playoffs teams always leave Russ open for the 3 and that makes him shoot the 3 and if he drives in they collapse and make him make a bad play . Just like the lakers did to Houston in the bubble playoffs they literally doubled harden and let Russ be Russ and that made them lose. Definitely need a trade Pat bev nunn Damian Jones and those picks maybe even trade russ. In the playoffs their isn’t many fast break high temp where Russ plays the best it’s halfcourt low tempo where you need to shoot to create space for lebron and ad . The team is good but definitely need some changes to be a title contender . Also having 2 ball dominating guys like Russ and lebrkn both can’t have more than 3 tov a game man that will hurt them in the playoffs and we all know russ always has high tov last night he had 6! Those will hurt in the playoffs which is why I think it’s best to trade him if they can’t get a good deal for Pat bev and nunn if they do then it’s okay to keep Russ but he has to limit his tov in the playoffs and not shoot as much. But yea the team definitely needs a shooter a wing and a center to help ad

    The Lakers success relies solely on their ability to hit 3s. They have great pieces to mitigate shooting slumps, which is why they’re competitive in games where it looks like they can’t shoot at all. When they shoot well, it takes pressure off AD and Lebrons 2 man game. Provides spacing for Russ to attack.

    When I see the Lakers winning, I see Russ playing his game, Lebron playing his game, and Ant playing to his strengths. They're all three extremely used to covering for other positions instead of simply playing their own spot to the best of their abilities. When they're all playing their own positions and not trying to double cover for each other, it's an extremely dangerous team.

    This really makes you wonder why shooting is often an afterthought in the NBA draft. You have guys drafted in the top 5 on "potential" who have shown zero ability to shoot the three. They don't even shoot FTs well. I'm thinking of someone like RJ Barrett. And yet you have guys like Trey Murphy, who has great size, great athleticism, and posted 50/43/93 shooting splits at UVA. How in the world does that guy go outside the lottery? It still seems to be that teams undervalue shooting touch as a baseline skill.

    Lakers didn’t start winning until LeBron got hurt
    When he came back, the Lakers continued to win
    Got to stop giving LeBron all the credit when he wins, but give the teammates, the coach & front office all the blame when he loses
    AD, Coach Ham, & Russ deserves way more credit than LeBron
    LeBron was hindering the team putting up empty numbers until he got hurt and now he’s back; now buying into Coach Ham’s system when he came back like AD, Russ & the rest of the team
    AD is carrying the team on both ends
    LeBron is accepting his role as the 2nd option
    Walker is now the 3rd option
    Westbrook is the 6th man & 2nd option when LeBron is out the game resting
    Lakers need 1 more shooter to go with Reaves and they will be a West Contender
    The West is up for grabs no dominant team

    I think Darvin Ham
    Deserves alot of credit … he from day 1 said this guy is gonna be mvp consideration this year … he stuck with this is our horse and we are gonna ride him all year :.. also KG and Barkley other former players basically saying he has top 5 talent but might not even be a top 20 talent the last year and half which is still good but nothing close to his talent now imagine buddy there spacing the floor for him he is doing this with minimal talent no real 3 option maybe a 4th or 5th but no real 3 option .. if he can sustain like a 28-12 year couple blocks and bron and him stay healthy and take games of seldomly they can be a playoff team not play in … and they can easily upset a team but saying finals contenders but way hell of a different team then we saw first 10 games .. and this team easily could be 12-10 not 10-12 but that’s not here or there let’s see how they do the last 60 games

      I agree, but AD is mostly what is making it unstoppable. Tbh, I think Lonnie Walker if given the opportunity could run the pick in roll with AD just as effectively as Russ. So, I'd still try to trade Russ if possible for someone with more reliable shooting or anyone that can fulfill a current need for Lakers

      Definitely, they just kept running the P&R the whole game and the wizards couldn’t stop it. If you help on Lebron he just bounce passes or throws a lob to AD. If you help on AD, Lebron just bullies the opponent at the rim. Russ and AD P&R is the same, except if they try to help on AD Russ just uses his crazy speed to finish at the rim OR they can just kick out to Lonnie or Austin for 3. It’s a cheat code!

    Lot of talk about getting Myles Turner. I wouldn't. If AD is playing this great at the 5 why move him? I doubt if you trade for Turner he would be ok being the back up, playing 15 min a night in a contract year. Even if he did accept the role he would probably walk in free agency.
    Buddy Hield would be a better pick up. It would be an easier player to plug right into the offense.
    So if you trade maybe Russ and a 1st for Hield then go and trade guys like Pat Bev and Nunn, who aren't great fits right now, and the other 1st for another 3 point shooter...
    Thats what will make you a contender.

    Pretty Basic, because AD demands a double team, other guys are going to have open looks. The key is AD is healthy, Lakers will continue to win as he stays healthy If he can stay healthy they have a good chance for another title.

    8-2 split up: 3 wins on San Antonio, 1 win vs. Detroit. Mediocres like Brooklyn (1) Portland (1) and Washington (1) - I only record one impressive team they beat and that was Milwaukee....I only see one team with homecourt advantage and I probably see 3 wins vs Playins (7-10) - and 4 wins vs Wemba Chasers - so this isn't real, don't get hyped up on that video.
    They lost vs. Suns and Pacers.....that's the 2 Losses - and I'm not a prophet to tell you that the next 10 they got 4-6 at best (my bet is on 3-7 but if someone tells me 2-8 I wouldn't be surprised either way). Check the schedule - it's becoming harder....
