Westbrook's negatives are significantly more impactful than Lebron's positives...especially considering a frequently-injured Lebron...they were doomed the minute they decided to sign Westbrook, the added presence of Melo and some other over-the-hill "stars" just accentuates the effect...

He was acquired because he's friends with LeBron. His inability to play any defence is a massive detriment to the Lakers chances of winning games.
true, but their problems with defense this season go well beyond melo right? also he hasn't stunk it up as much as westbrook this season (so far)...

melo is on a small 1 year deal and the Lakers knew what they were getting for their money

They can afford to use him as a glorified cheer leader for the entire year if that’s what is needed

The real problem is that they also knew what they were getting with Russ and he’s on a massive, multi year deal which materially impacts upon their ability to make moves to improve their roster

Watching the Bulls-Lakers game and wondering why Billy is leaving starters in at this point of the game. Then I realize we're just at the end of the 3rd quarter...

I don’t know what to think of the Bulls after they got beaten twice by the Sixers without Simmons & Harris and getting pounded by the Warriors

Maybe 2nd round

The Lakers are simply dysfunctional atm
