        The loud music makes your videos unwatchable. Take it off or lower it down imo.

                        seems like LA needs to use SVI or Moe wagner to hit 3's, get help close games, idk if Luke will be wise enough to use them. 3's are so crucial to winning, no matter how great the game was, you need those shooters. the 1st unit just looks like ball handlers and iso makers, we need zo /hart/ svi on the wing hitting shots all night.

                                    Lebron always runs out of gas late in the game which is why he's always resting on the defensive end of the court.

                                            The 4 sunk sequence showed why both these teams are probably not contenders, no defense lol.

                                                Lakers drop their first game but im still excited for them, if they get along together they will be fine

                                                    A Jordan Clarkson favorite last year was Horns Flex, but TRASH SHOOTERS got Coach Walton afraid to call the play.
                                                    Thank God for the rookie draft picks:
                                                    Mo Wagner = Stretch-5
                                                    Svi Mykhailiuk = Klay Thompson 2.0

                                                        Lakers lost cause they couldn't hit the broad side of the barn. Had they made a decent percentage they would have won easily.

                                                          Tbh I saw something I loved yesterday. Last night was the first time I can remember that I’ve seen LeBron not run an isolation offense for the majority of the game. Yes the Lakers lost but LeBron seems to be running an offense which can be deadly if Hart, Svi (who needs to get in), KCP, Kuzma, and Lonzo’s (I still have hope) 3’s fall. I’m not saying Lakers are championship bound but the fact that LeBron is buying in a system is a good sign.

                                                            Lakers only scored 7/31 threes yesterday. They have to be more accurate and find better ways to defend the perimeter. It's a whole new crew so let's give them some time to gel. They are pretty exciting to watch and hopefully they can find their marks.
