    Anthony Davis already got his money and he usually misses the playoffs. He was an underachiever in New Orleans. LeBron has never been part of a dynasty. He barely repeated in 2013. Frauds.

    I'm actually rooting for the Lakers to win tonight to help my Clippers recapture the 3rd seed but I know they'll lose. Same old Lakers from 2014-2019. They were a joke of a team for 6 straight years. Back to that.

    Lakers do not look good at all this year. Chemistry issues. Probably some internal feuding and trust issues as well. Their offense has never been great. They're poor at shooting. It's their defense that disappeared.

  79. Pat4Clippers

    Pat4ClippersПре 10 дана

    I bet Skip will even root for the Lakers over his Spurs in a play-in game only because he so badly wants the Clippers to destroy them in the playoffs. Too bad that won't happen. Suns will sweep Lakers.

  80. Haywood

    HaywoodПре 10 дана

    Injuries aside, the Lakers have shot below league average from 3 and the FT line in 22 of their 28 losses. They can’t shoot. This why they’re in this situation. It’s that simple.

  81. Pat4Clippers

    Pat4ClippersПре 10 дана

    I say what's the point? Win 1 or 2 extra play-in games just to get bounced early? And trust me, Lakers fans will be pissed if they lose to the Clippers. The team they've been ridiculing all year. Karma is here.



    Karma has been here since the second round of the playoffs last year...👀

  83. Pat4Clippers

    Somewhere in Culver City, Skip Bayless is probably grinning but also a little disappointed the Lakers might miss the playoffs again. He doesn't get to watch the Clippers destroy them.

    Lakers might go 1-8 for the month of May. They are limping into the playoffs. When they hang their banner on the 12th vs. Houston which is the 1 they can win, they could be on an 8-game losing streak.

  87. Pat4Clippers

    Pat4ClippersПре 10 дана

    It's very possible the Lakers will miss the playoffs. The energy just isn't there on both ends. LeBron might miss the playoffs twice in three seasons as a Laker. It's actually common for AD to miss it.
