Vogul is probably fired if the lakers lose this game. Reports have been swirling and this would be a bad loss. Levert just dominating.

Yup he's definitely a goner.

Can't fault him, blame Pelinka for giving him all that trash and force old frail men to play defense lol. They just needed a fall guy.

Without looking I would guess either the year before the Celtics drafted Marcus Smart or the year before the Lakers got Shaq

Edit:  nope, apparently the Lakers were good that last season without Shaq.  It was a couple years earlier

Showtime II = Nick Van Exel, Eddie Jones, Cedric Ceballos, Elden Campbell and Vlade Divac. They were one of the funnest teams in the league at that time.

The Lakers have only missed the playoffs 11 times and 6 of them were the 5 years before Lebron and then Lebron's 1st year when he got hurt.    They both missed in 13-14 and 93-94.  That is it.
2021 Historical Draft - 5th Pick - Raptors
PG - Tiny Archibald 73, Don Buse 77, Terrell Brandon 96
SG - Chet Walker 67, Michael Cooper 87, Raja Bell 06
SF - Predrag "Peja" Stojakovic 04, Kiki Vandeweghe 87, Robert Covington 18
PF - Karl Malone 97, Spencer Haywood 73, David West 08

Garrison Mathews turned down the Celtics not the other way around. C's offered him the two way slot they gave Broderic Thomas, but Mathews said no.

It was reported that Mathews wanted a full roster slot and thought Hauser, who was already signed, had a lot of overlap of skills with Mathews. And given the performances of the three young guys(Nesmith, Pritchard and Romeo) in Summer League and the pre-season, not offering a full roster spot contract seemed the right move at the time.

I don't blame the C's for Mathews not being here. He chose to go elsewhere.

The Celtics could've given him Parkers roster spot. Parker never played. Why have him on a contract? Ever year we have too many dead roster spots used on guys that see no time.

And if a pig had wings it could fly.

At the time, Mathews didn't show enough to warrant a roster slot. One of the worst teams in the league, Houston, only brought him in on a two-way before converting it to a full roster slot contract.

Mathews took another two-way someplace he thought he could get playing time. He had to be talked into taking that two-way with Houston. He contemplated leaving basketball.

It's not like Boston offered less than Houston. Matthews just did not have confidence he would have an opportunity here so rejected the Celtics. The Celtics did not reject him or offer him anything less than Houston.

WE just made a trade for two players that won't play this year at all. Before it's considered hindsight I'd like to say that is a waste of two spots that could be filled with shooters. Right now we have Smart, Nesmith injured TIMELORD out for personal reasons, Hauser, Thomas, Bruno who won't be played. Bol Bol and Dozier. 8 out of 17 players are unavailable. That's half the roster.

The Celtics also cut Parker after training camp only to resign him.  They weren't scared of anyone claiming Parker off waivers.  They had Matthews under an NBA contract and could have just kept him instead of trying to make him a 2-way, and they chose a different player who was equally unwanted by the league.  That was a mistake, plain and simple.  Heck, just resigning Parker at all was a mistake.  If they'd just let him walk and left the roster spot open, they'd be under the luxury tax already, which they're still going to have to make trades to get under.  In other words, the best answer was to keep Matthews.  The second best answer was to keep neither.  They went with the worst of those three choices.  It was a bad decision, and a lot of us said so at the time, for either of the above reasons.

What shooter is out there who should be signed?  Is he any better of a player than Hauser, who is a shooter who already isn't played?

I do expect that we'll open a roster spot by the deadline for a free agent, and/or have enough tax space that we could cut Fernando to sign one.
