Russell Westbrook has the same issues he is always had he is not going to change in with all of them getting older they're all going to do what they know how to do. If the only can have for the Lakers losing is because LeBron James isn't playing then that's a terrible team if one person out of your team causes your team to lose games then that's a terribly constructed

Westbrook needs to pass before shooting a three pointer if Laker's want to win

LeBron is finished. He is like an old car that needs tune up and be calibrated. You can see that “check engine light” on everytime. Not even Anthony Davis, the so called AD is too soft like a tissue paper. Too brittle like a glass that you cannot rely on him when games really matters. He is as weak as PorZingis, always injured. Jeannie Buss , wake up for your own sake.

Stop bringing up them Heat days. That was a decade ago. Lebron is too old to be piece mealing a team like this together. AD is going to have to be the Lakers best player.
Thé lakers havé 2 gréat players and a group of has been players plus Westbrook who never showed up when it mattered to most he certainly can’t now it’s an insult to the nba to expect the Lakers to win the championship LEBRON needs help to win a championship those has been players want LEBRON to make them win but LEBRON can’t

Ima be So hunnit when I say this as a Lakers fan: the Lakers are not coming out of the WCF with Russ on the team 🤷🏾‍♂️ why bc Russ isn’t going to be willing to compromise and sacrifice for the team. He can’t shoot and he is his own worst enemy. Hey Russ fans think of all the stars Russ has played with and left OKC bc of Russ being Russ 😭. Hey Russ fans, yo boy is a selfish player accept it stop being delusional.

"frank vogel a defensive minded coach" yeah sub roy hibbert at the very last 2 sec of conference finals game and let lebron penetrate for free. Chose to maximize perimeter defence over interior defence when lebron is playing the best years of his life.

Stephen A. is totally correct.. WestB is going to have to change his game to cut/slasher/rebounder, play off the ball more to get more touches instead of bringing the ball up..He would be the best big little man on the court doing damage on the interior.

Jay Williams is awful. He has no room to talk about other players’ personal decisions. He made one: buy a motorcycle after being the 2nd player picked in the draft and counted on to be a franchise cornerstone. He has no cred after he destroyed the Bulls franchise in the following years….

The Lakers didn't lose because of Westbrook. AD got 33 and Lebron got 34. That should be more than enough to win on most nights. The Lakers lost because they gave up 38 to the Warriors in the 4th quarter. How often do teams win when they give up 38 in the fourth quarter?

Usually some point guards develop perimeter shooting in the late stages of their careers. We saw this from Jason Kidd and at some instances Rajon Rondo. Russ seems to be doing the opposite.

Differently, No! The offense Should be ran By Westbrook not LeBron. The Lakers had off season and pre- season to fix their losses. And don’t give me that old pre- season games Doesn’t matter 💩either. If You practice losing Games what does that make You? Though the Lakers are stacked doesn’t mean Jack 💩 when It comes to CRUNCH TIME. Why don’t you think Westbrook has a ton of triple doubles? It’s because He gets everyone involved. EVERYONE I tell ya! You don’t put this kinda talent on a team And expect to finish games without Him running Sh*t 💩. LeBron Philosophy is Pieces that makes a team. On the Contrary, It’s teamwork that win Games. With all this talent on the bench, it’s obvious who the Coach is. Besides most of us Know LeBron is chasing Michael. With what LBJ Has left He’ll need to win 3 straight to even surpass M.J. Personally I don’t see the Lakers Winning 3 straight to put LeBron’s in the driver’s Seat 💺. He’ll be 39 should He passes M.J. and 40 should He retire. I’m willing to bet if He doesn’t Do it by the time He’s 39, He’d be 40 + trying to Catch the goat 🐐.

Man I'd love to know what the Lakers plan to do. I never like pairing players who dont fit well together. I think starting games with AD at the 5 and staggering russ and lebron so they can both handle the ball more might help. But I wonder how russ will utilize his strengths with gwo other guys trying to get into the lane and one handling the ball a lot

My starting five. But wait. If Melo can come off the bench so can Westbrook. This is no doubt the winning squad starting line up after after allstar...understanding bring needs rest. Bron as point. START MELO AT THE FOUR. AD at center Then put bradley as the 2 and Ariza as the 3. West brook can carry the load till allstar. That's my guy. MELO IS A STAR. If we wanted to we could run the office through MELO..

For the Lakers to win a NBA Championship this season with Russell Westbrook, they must do these things: 🤠 1) Let Russell Westbrook get 35-40 minutes a game and be the undisputed point guard 👉 2) Lebron needs to conserve his minutes to help for the playoffs. He needs about 25-29 minutes a game 😎 3) Anthony Davis needs to become the leading scorer with about 30 points a game and 40 minutes playing time giving LeBron rest. 👍 4) Russell Westbrook and LeBron needs about 25-28 points a game 😬🤐🤫🤠 5) Russell Westbrook needs to play his style with rebounding and hustling defense 6) A.D. needs to get 12 rebounds per game 7) Dwight Howard needs to play great defense and at times go 17 rebounds and 17 points too 🤨🧐 8) Rajon Rondo should be point guard number 3 behind point forward LeBron averaging about 7 assists 😁 9) Role players need to diversify scoring nightly and shoot less threes for more quality mid-range 😑 10) The Lakers have to trust Russell Westbrook as point guard and so does Lebron 👉 11) Let Russell Westbrook be Russell Westbrook 🤡🤡 12) Forget about playoff seeding and focus more on playing any team . Welcome it‼️

LeBron and Westbrook go together like oil and water. Their games do not complement each other and on top of that neither one especially Westbrook is a great shooter. If the Lakers are smart and if somehow Westbrook is humble enough and if he cares about winning as much as he says he does, then he’s going to need to become a 6th man. Let Rondo start and let Westbrook lead the 2nd unit.
