Lakers haven’t played together, no chemistry yet, no coach, prone injury. Clippers have a core, Coach, Kawhi in his prime, defense!

The Lakers biggest issue is Lebron James. They should've traded him this summer when they had a chance because he's washed up and toxic.

Doc Rivers so overrated. He won 1 championship with 3 hall of famers + an all star. Underachieved all years for lob city era, his teams didnt even make it out of the second round, and now he is some great coach. They hyping him like he is Phil Jackson or Greg Papovich. I remember the Clipper fans were calling for him to get fired a couple years ago.

No franchise has leeched off of a international brand in same arena and pay 10$ clipper tickets for banners and statues ? Disrespect to wear some welfare uniform in a Lakers arena . NBA agenda for LAs leverage incase they leave again. Clippers are a crime and they want u to make it a rivalry sorry its gay boring and not organic . Stop letting grandmothers run the NBA. (CLIPPERS ARE A CRIME )100%

LeBron and Anthony Davis are far from the magical Duo that will be able to carry the team to the finals I don't believe that many teams now we're getting better and better it just won't happen you could even look at a team like the box with the Greek Freak him by himself would be a handful for the Lakers because LeBron doesn't play defense Anthony Davis probably only play so much so he wouldn't go up against him The Greek Freak if they played so many of Javale McGee going against him he's not athletic enough to go up against them either too many of these teams are going to be giving them a problem even the Houston Rockets with Harden and Westbrook will be shooting the lights out that'll be a mess to I beat the Lakers will get to the playoffs though I just don't think
JJ skyflyer

Max said Lakers have a very very good roster no they have an old LeBron James Anthony Davis who is injury-prone Danny Green who can play really well I don't think he's going to be super consistent though kind of like JJ Redick these are people you don't see highlights of often cuz they are not very consistent people need to stop mentioning Javale McGee and Rajon Rondo like they matter nothing sounds more pathetic than trying to sell up Javale McGee LOL

my fellow Laker fans around the globe, ignore this A, he is actually an F, he is't an A. he only has limited knowledge about B Ball. no team, again, no team can defend AD and LBJ, they can defend everybody else in the league. no no not us.

That bench looks bad, especially no Cousins so Macgee is your starting center. You'll be fine in the regular season, but the grind of the playoffs? You need depth or you'll lose. They are a Lebron twisted ankle away from missing the playoffs.
