Kyle Kuzma 30 Points Full Highlights (4/4/2018)

Kyle Kuzma has some pretty hook shots. A lot of players only shoot running hook shots when their drives to the basket are disrupted and they’ve ended up somewhere where they didn’t expect, but with Kuzma it feels like part of a plan when he shoots those things. I don’t know if I’m just romanticizing…

Kyle Kuzma 26 Points Full Highlights (4/3/2018)

Kyle Kuzma has delivered after his impressive Summer League (which seems so long ago, now). I didn’t think he would, really. No one ever does, I’ve been burned by Josh Selby and the like so many times that I’m beginning to think it’s better to suck in Summer League. I’m pretty much ready for this…

Kentavious Caldwell-Pope 28 Points Full Highlights (4/3/2018)

Somehow, a game where Kentavious Caldwell-Pope leads the charge for the Lakers just doesn’t feel as satisfying. He’s not ancient or anything, but he’s also not a homegrown talent and he’ll be gone (presumably) after the season is over. Him scoring points means nothing for the Lakers of the future. Long story short, I’m advocating…

Kyle Kuzma 27 Points/6 Assists Full Highlights (3/30/2018)

I hate it when the home crowd gets excited and loud. For some reason it just pisses me off. So when Kyle Kuzma was involved with a sequence of plays that closed the Bucks’ lead from double-digits to nothing, and the Lakers’ faithful got louder and more raucous each time the gap was narrowed, I…

Ivica Zubac 16 Points Full Highlights (3/30/2018)

I was sort of losing it as I watched Ivica Zubac dominate the Bucks for a little 12-minute stretch there late in the game. The Bucks had a huge lead, then Caruso and Zubac come in with their “chemistry” and “passing” and “whiteness” and dismantle the Bucks’ defense possession after possession. Each successive basket got…

Lonzo Ball 15 Points/11 Assists Full Highlights (3/26/2018)

I truly believe that a large part of Lonzo Ball’s popularity is due to how fun his name is to say. “Lonzo Ball”. “Lon-zo. Ball.” “Ball” It’s great. Just a really great name, both in print and vocalized. Distinctive, too. The kind of name you can easily build a brand off of. There’s a reason…

Kyle Kuzma 25 Points Full Highlights (3/24/2018)

What was the ratio of Grizzlies fans to Lakers fans at this game? This game IN MEMPHIS. Based on the loudness of the “Kuuuuuuuuz” chants every time Kyle Kuzma did something (I didn’t hear any chants when he was doing nothing, but they could’ve existed), I’d say it was 90/10 in favor of the Lakers….

Kentavious Caldwell-Pope 28 Points/8 Threes Full Highlights (3/22/2018)

Not shown in this video: Kentavious Caldwell Pope’s game-losing turnover at the end of regulation. Normally, when a team is down by three with only a few seconds left, they don’t mess around with “passing the ball”, but KCP thought otherwise and his team didn’t even get a shot up. I don’t know why he…

Kyle Kuzma 27 Points Full Highlights (3/19/2018)

I already hold an odd form of nostalgia for this past offseason’s Summer League and preseason, when you couldn’t walk five steps without hearing yet another Lakers fanperson extolling the virtues of the Lakers rookies, of Kyle Kuzma and Lonzo Ball. Grand proclamations of glory flooding social media, previously unwatched basketball becoming must-see TV. There…

Julius Randle 26 Points Full Highlights (3/13/2018)

The Lakers have been playing like a fringe playoff team ever since Julius Randle got inserted into the starting line up (coincidence???? MAYBE), but it’s way too late for them to think about making the playoffs. What they should be thinking about instead is making it to .500 for the season so Laker fans can…
