You have a lot of youth sure, but I still think you're underachieving a bit. A low Playoff seed should be manageable.

The main goal was to clear space. You want to know who are the Upcoming Free Agents? LeBron, Howard, Davis, Lillard, Jefferson, Wiggins, Duncan, Drummond, Monroe, Jennings, etc. I may not have won in this trade, but we still have a long way to go so I'm not worried. :wink:

Re: Los Angeles Lakers [21-27] - Slam Dunk Contestants Revealed!

Postby Kevin on Thu Jul 23, 2015 1:48 pm

    Antetokounmpo, Johnson headlines Sprite Slam Dunk Contest


    Image

Milwaukee's Giannis Antetokounmpo, Toronto’s J.P. Tokoto, Sacramento's Chris Walker and Los Angeles’ Stanley Johnson will be this year's contestants in the All-Star weekend Slam Dunk Contest, the NBA announced Tuesday night.

Antetokounmpo is the headliner here, with his long arms and freakish athleticism making him a walking highlight reel for the Bucks. His youth should add some creativity to the weekend's marquee event.

Speaking of youth, all the contestants in the Sprite Slam Dunk Contest are rookies except the Greek Freak, who is now in his third year in the league. The Fans are eager to see him dominate this contest.

But Johnson is no slouch, either. The Laker rookie makes up in flair what he lacks in intimidating stature. The 6-foot-7 guard out of Arizona State has been known for his dunking prowess since college, so his slam dunk nod is no surprise. The event will be at the Madison Square Garden on February 19, 2016.

Monthly Recap Part 2 of 2

Image


Green = Team Leader in..

________________________________________________________________________________________________________


Team Monthly Report


What went right:
• Emmanuel Mudiay is leading the rookies in points, assists, steals, and minutes per game. He is also looking to unanimously win the Rookie of the Year Award this season.
• Julius Randle seems to be very confident with the way he is playing. The forward is averaging a double-double (16-10) paired with 2 blocks per game. He also leads the team in efficiency.
• Stanley Johnson has been great so far for filling up with the injured Kelly Oubre. In the past two weeks, the forward from Arizona State has been averaging 14.9 ppg, 5.3 rpg, and 4.2 apg.
• Joel Embiid finally healed from his sore knee after having it for most of the season. We plan to keep him as healthy as possible.
• The team finally dumped Hassan Whiteside’s big salary. Whiteside’s contract was upholding the Lakers from signing a Free Agent.


What went wrong:

• Kelly Oubre went down a couple of weeks ago with a torn hand ligament. He will be out for 6 to 8 weeks, according to the doctors.
• Nick Young has been terrible so far. Young has been attempting shots like Kobe in his prime but not making as many as Kobe had. He is currently in 8th place in shot attempts in the league and that should surprise everyone since he’s basically the 7th man in the rotation.
• Jordan Clarkson is still struggling to contribute. He does lead the team in PER, though.


What to expect next month:
You could probably say that the month of January was the most difficult month on the Lakers’ schedule. The team barely won games and lost to almost everyone and with Oubre and Carroll out for a month/s, it’s going to get tough fighting for that 8th seed.


________________________________________________________________________________________________________


Player Reviews


Emmanuel Mudiay
Probably the most athletic guard in the roster. This guy is a 6’6 point guard that can shoot, rebound, and make plays for everyone. I really like doing the pick and roll with him and Embiid but he is still yet to develop the pick and pop game and it always results in a turnover when he executes it. He can be a very good rebounder at times when Randle/Embiid is sitting on the bench. He’ll just jump and get the ball off of their hands.


Kelly Oubre
Early in the season, Kelly struggled shooting the ball but a few good games made him confident. A very streaky shooter and athletic forward. He likes to attack the basket then pass it back to the perimeter players, mainly Young and Bryant. This guy can dunk on anyone any time so I always use the pick and roll with Randle so I can have two options, dunk it hard or pass the ball underneath to Randle.

Postby TGsoGood on Sat Jul 25, 2015 3:23 pm

If you are actually controlling the lakers in these games I'm sure clarkson's PER is a fluke, when I play I sometimes have my main stars fall behind in PER due to turnovers and fouls because they play most of the minutes. Then a lower tier guy will only play a few minutes and get no fouls or turnovers and end up with a high PER.

Maybe once Oubre is 100% you could shop Stanley Johnson and Nick young for a specialist.
Mudiay and Randle seem like cornerstones for the franchise.

Probably a bug on 2k's side or their formula needs changing.

I would really want Nick Young out of LA as soon as possible but the teams aren't offering that much for him. I might wait before the trade deadline so the teams get pressured and just take the bait :lol: .

Re: Los Angeles Lakers [21-27] - Three-Point Shootout Contestants Revealed

Postby Kevin on Mon Jul 27, 2015 12:17 pm

    Durant, Thompson headline Three-Point Shootout

    Image
The NBA announced its field of six competitors for the annual Three-Point Contest, a Saturday staple of All-Star Weekend. This year's Three-Point Contest will take place at the Madison Square Garden in New York on Saturday, Feb. 19.

The field includes reigning champion Damian Lillard of the Portland Trailblazers who will defend his title in this year's Foot Locker Three-Point Contest. Rounding out the field are All-Stars Klay Thompson of the Warriors and Kevin Durant of the Oklahoma City Thunder, Danny Green of the San Antonio Spurs, Kevin Martin of the Minnesota Timberwolves, and Nate Robinson of the Houston Rockets.

Damian Lillard bested the Golden State Warriors' Stephen Curry in last year's contest, scoring 25 points in the final round to capture the title.

I would keep it realistic, but at the end of the day is your desicion.

So what are you going to do w/ the line up if Wiggins comes?
If stanley Johnson is the 6th man and Wiggins is in LA to stay then you should probably look into trading Oubre. Maybe for pick + a lowly paid specialist (maybe a 3pt specialist).

I'd say no, just because I like realism and realistic trades a lot more. That helps me stick with my thread. I have to resist the urge to trade a lot and make big moves (I've done too much recently anyway with Favors for Ryno), but maybe make a smaller trade if you're desperate for a new face.

Sim brings little benefit anyway, so trade him for somebody who can actually play for more than 4 minutes :roll:

Carroll back to full health


The Los Angeles Lakers forward, DeMarre Carroll, is now reportedly back to full health, according to Lakers’ coach, Byron Scott.

Carroll tore his ACL around last year’s playoffs when the Atlanta Hawks were at the brink of going to the Eastern Conference Finals.

Coach Byron Scott said Carroll is now ready to play in his first game this season.

We should see him on the floor tomorrow night when the Lakers face the Memphis Grizzlies.

Lakers sign undrafted rookie Rashad Vaughn

Image

The Los Angeles Lakers have signed undrafted guard from the 2015 NBA Draft, Rashad Vaughn, General Manager Kevin Parker Sr. announced today. It seems like Vaughn will be a Laker for 4 years and will be paid $1.2M per year.

Vaughn, a 6-foot-6-inch guard out of UNLV, was named the Mountain West Conference’s Freshman of the Year, Honorable Mention All-League and Second Team NABC All-District 17 in 2014-15 after averaging a team-high 17.8 points, along with 4.8 rebounds and 1.6 assists per game. He started all 23 games in which he played for the Rebels before suffering a season-ending knee injury, and at the time of the injury, his scoring average ranked second in the MWC and third in the nation among freshmen.

The Lakers hope Vaughn can share the load with the other rookie, Emmanuel Mudiay.

When asked about the signing, Vaughn said, “I’m very grateful for this opportunity that the Lakers Organization offered me. I’m sure I can contribute to this team and I hope the Lakers fans support me through my journey.”
Vaughn will play his first game as a Laker on Tuesday against the Dallas Mavericks.

Re: Los Angeles Lakers [28-28] - Lakers sign Vaughn | Lakers look to get above .500

Postby Kevin on Sat Aug 22, 2015 8:03 pm

Lakers looking to get above .500


Image


Before the All-Star Break, the Lakers were able to get their fifth consecutive win when they defeated the New Orleans Pelicans 106-87 in front of Lakers fans at Staples Center. The win would place the Lakers back at .500, knotting their overall record at 27-27. Even though the Lakers clearly said that they are not looking to contend this season, they still think that going above the .500 mark can be a good morale and confident booster for their team.

Tonight, the Lakers are playing against the Dallas Mavericks in their homecourt. This will be the first game of a short three-game road trip in which the Lakers will travel to New Orleans, Dallas, and Cleveland.

While the Mavericks may not have the most impressive record (29-26) coming into tonight, they’re a contending team that certainly gets excited to play against a team like the Lakers. As has been the narrative for every road game this season for the Lakers, a bad start can really bury this team very deep into a deficit, so it’s going to be key for the Lakers that they start the game with strong effort and energy if they want to be successful on the road.
