Lakers Nation Podcast: Episode 1 (Preseason Edition)

What will Kobe Bryant make this season? Find out here!

We discussed the summer additions, the current direction of the franchise, Kobe Bryant’s return and what realistic expectations for the 2015-16 NBA season might look like.

This week, we were joined by LakersNation.com’s Corey Hansford. Beyond providing quality editorials and news content for the site, Hansford also puts together a weekly roundtable discussion that we’ll try to feature each episode. Question of the Week: Will D’Angelo Russell or Julius Randle have a better “rookie” season for the Lakers in 2015-16?

GO LAKERS!!!

  • Let’s be honest, none of these busts, scrubs and has beens on this Lakers roster with the exception of Brandon Bass would make the roster on any other NBA team or EuroLeague team, hey i heard the Falkland Islands National Baketball League is hiring!!!

  • Just play Kobe. That minute restriction is stupid. Some nights he may be feeling it so i want to see him go off for 40 instead of being restricted for no reason at all. There’s no point in saving him

  • So stupid post. Last season we played Kobe without restriction. Results:

    – 37.3%,
    – exhausted after a month of the season,
    – top worst wins production in the league,
    – -0,6 points worse offense with him,
    – -6.6 points worse defense with him,
    – So -7.2 with him per 100
    – worst defender in the league
    – all-time leader in most missed shots,

    – worst start in Lakers franchise history,
    – worst defens in Lakers history,
    – worst team in Lakers history,
    – the only player since 50 years who scored 20+ points on 37%. Other words – most ineffective player in NBA history,
    – Mr 6/17 11/25 6/15 12/28 14/37 7/20 10/28 10/26 1/14 15/34 10/18 10/28 6/22 10/24 5/15 10/18 11/24 4/11 8/22 9/21 6/18 11/27 7/22 7/20 8/26 3/15 8/30 2/12 3/19,
    – worst clutch player in NBA. Mr 1/23 in crunch time,
    – absolutely most idiotic contested shots in the NBA,
    – most overpaid player in NBA history,
    – first player in NBA history who was excluded from games because of ruining his team,

    The more Kobe, the more troubles and tragic games. Fanboys can cry, but facts are OBVIOUS!

  • But was exhausted after 20 games and had to be limited, started playing half games, no back-to-back and finally finished his season. Playing him 40 is most stupid thing you can do now:
    – firstly – team will strongly suffer because of his unthinking and ineffective basket,
    – secondly – it’s a great way to finish his season after month, and probably also career

    And I hold foolish people that add no value to a discussion accountable. A lot of folks just want to vent whatever misguided negativity they harbor.

    And on occasion, I step in and deliberately battle the trolls and spoiled knee jerk responders to silence their influence. I am also one to call out those who misrepresent the truth or spin facts to support misguided claims.

    And outside of the select time I choose to help remove the trash my words are invariably optimistic and positive.
