Lakers now 7.5 games out of the 8th spot with 14 games remaining. Feels like a done deal.

Even more so now that they lost to the Knicks with LeBum producing his career worst quarter (4th) ever.

I looked at their record pre- and post-AD trade.

Before LeBum ordered his minion Rich Paul to have AD demand a trade, the Lakers were 26-24 for .520 win %.

Afterwards, when Rich Paul had leaked that everyone on the Lakers other than LeBum were available the Lakers were 5-14 for .263. Unfortunately one of those games was against us  :-\

Even taking into account his injury, the AD powerplay completely destroyed their team chemistry.

Or it coincides with Ball getting injured.  Lakers were 25-22 with Ball (25-20 with Ball starting).  They are 6-17 since Ball went down.

I think this one is clear as a tear.
LBJ mined the dam. It doesn't look pretty after it blew up.

But building around 34 y/o is always a good thing, so they have that going for them.

The Lakers are terrible without Ball's defense as there isn't a single guard on that team that guards anyone, other than Ball.  when Ball went down the flood gates opened in the back court and opposing guards have a field day night in and night out.  It affects everyone on the team's defense and makes it very difficult to win games.  I'm sure the trade rumors didn't help, but the young guys still seemed to perform at about the same clip, so it really didn't affect them much.  Then Ingram went down as well, but the down fall started when Ball got hurt.  His injury set the Lakers on their present course of losing.

This has become quite embarrassing

Walton does not deserve rap he is getting . This belongs to Lakers FO and LeHood and associates.   

Walton will get another gig VERY fast.  He has been amazing to actually try and be acoach though all this drama Lebron brought will him.  With Lopez , Zu, Randle and Russel ...Walton would have been in the playoffs .   So they trade his two best centers , his only shooters and hire a bunch of slack has beens.   No direction by FO.  Lebron is UNcoachable by REAL coaches .

I still donít understand their plan last off-season. ďBring in a bunch of volatile personalities who canít shoot and who only play defense occasionally ď.  Even on one year deals, thatís the best they could do?

Their FO is a complete mystery to me. Trading Zubac is still completely baffling.

Not that I'm complaining. Now I can root for Zubac to succeed!

I'm sure he will get another job, but I'm not so sure he is actually a good coach.  He has made quite a few questionable decisions, and none of them worked out.  His in game adjustments have been poor through out his tenure.  I just don't see much there that would give me confidence in his ability going forward and he obviously isn't the right coach for this team.

It all points to that PG13 was their main plan,
and when he changed his mind (or NBA told him he can't, remember Magics tampering during the last season), they were left without options. Contingency plans didn't exist and they went for this "let's reroll it until the next year" option.

PG13 is exactly the kind of guy LBJ needs at this point of his career. He defends, can score, and is ready for big things.
He is truly the best-man of LeBron's fall.

I agree with Roy that this LBJ disappointment is a combination of things, not just father time.

Lebron doesn't need AnY head coach ,  he is gonna hog the ball and play when , where , how he likes .   He sits by himself , snubs the team ...like you all suck and Im not needing anything from you.

So,   he has what he wants .  ...he pays no attention to Walton ...he doesn't need another coach ....just somebody to sit there and do what ever he wants .   >:(

How can you blame any coach , when your best player defies you at every turn and ridicules you in front of other players and acts like you are not in charge ?  How,is the rest of the team who looks for coaching and guidance supposed to react ?   This is partly to blame for the culture of the younger players .    Its like if Lebron likes me , then Im ok ,  how about the other 12 guys he won't have anything to do with ?
