The sky isn't falling ..... Yet

Team riddled with injury.

Need time to gel the new group

It cannot work though. Westbrook needs the ball in his hands and he needs everyone - including LeBron and AD - spacing for him. That is ludicrous.

The Lakers did not need a max point guard. Rondo can run the second unit and he costs SFA.

The Lakers need elite 3 and D and you can get that times 2 for $40m.

LBJ. 2 games out of 7.

Completely new team. Will need 20 games to even remotely gel together. Things a bit harder when arguably maybe Ur 4th 5th 6th 7th players are injured.

How the hell did they get Westbrook? Who is responsible for that?

Yes he is an all star. Yes he was an MVP. But he is the worst fitting piece in basketball history.

With an offence built around a point forward why the * do you spend $40m on a point guard who can only play point guard :drunk:

This roster is a train wreck.

Saw Rondo playing for the Cavs the other day. Why on earth was he let go?

Not winning anything with Westbrook. Shame because LeBron is unbelievably still good enough to be the best player on a championship winning team, just needs good shooters and defenders around him.

What actually was the best fitting team LeBron ever had? Arguably Wade and Irving and definitely Westbrook are all bad fits.
