  • Introduction to Video Content
  • The Los Angeles Lakers are facing major challenges early in the NBA season as they struggle to find success. In a recent game against the Houston Rockets, the Lakers suffered a devastating 34-point loss, bringing their flaws to the forefront. As a sports commentator, I find it fascinating that in the world of professional athletics, there are clear winners and losers. Unlike subjective preferences in music or art, sports provide a definitive outcome. And as of now, it is clear that the Lakers are not the champions. Analyzing their performance, it becomes evident why the Lakers are struggling. First, their three-point shooting has been abysmal, with a shooting percentage of only 29%, making them the worst three-point shooting team in the league. This inability to score consistently from beyond the arc puts them at a significant disadvantage against their opponents, especially in today's perimeter-oriented game. Furthermore, the Lakers' offense ranks 22nd in the league in scoring, highlighting their offensive struggles. They have failed to find the cohesion and efficiency necessary to compete at a high level. Compounding their issues, star player Anthony Davis has been dealing with a hip spasm, which kept him out of the game against the Rockets. Davis's absence further exposed the Lakers' lack of depth and reliance on their superstar duo of Davis and LeBron James. Without Davis, the Lakers appeared lost and lacked the necessary firepower to compete with a strong Rockets team. To address these challenges and turn their season around, the Lakers must make significant adjustments. Improving their three-point shooting should be a top priority, as it is a crucial aspect of today's NBA game. They need to find shooters who can reliably knock down threes and stretch the floor, opening up space for James and Davis to operate. Additionally, they must work on offensive strategies that generate efficient scoring opportunities and minimize turnovers. While it is still early in the season and all hope is not lost, the Lakers must act swiftly to address their issues and get back on track. With a talented roster that includes superstars like James and Davis, they have the potential to turn things around and compete with the best teams in the league. However, it will require a collective effort from players, coaches, and management to make the necessary adjustments and put the Lakers back on the path to success.
  • Subtitles section
  • I cover the world of professional athletics
  • and one of the things that we inevitably have to get into
  • and what I love about sports
  • is that there's winners and losers.
  • You know, it ain't up in the air.
  • You know, it's not to each his own.
  • You know, we're talking music.
  • I like Beyonce, somebody else likes Rihanna
  • somebody else likes Taylor Swift
  • and Lord knows who else
  • Jennifer Lopez, Shakira
  • the list goes on and on and on
  • all right?
  • In sports, there's a champion.
  • There's somebody who raises their hand
  • gets their hand hoisted above everybody else's
  • when all is said and done,
  • Why am I bringing that up?
  • Because I'm telling you right now
  • this early in the season
  • damn it, they ain't gonna be the Lakers.
  • It's not gonna be the Lakers, okay?
  • I'm looking at the Lakers on Wednesday night
  • and I watched the Los Angeles Lakers thoroughly get their ass kicked.
  • How the hell, you lose by thirty four points
  • to the Houston Rockets,
  • Let me say it again.
  • How in the hell do you lose by thirty four points to the Houston Rockets?
  • I understand Imae Udoka is the coach.
  • I understand things are moving in a forward direction.
  • I understand Jalen Green
  • got star potential, written all over him,
  • I love the acquisition of Dylan Brooks and Fred Van Vliet.
  • I get it.
  • I understand it.
  • But my point is, how do you lose by thirty four points?
  • If you're the Lakers, I'll tell you how.
  • You do it by being the worst three point shooting team in basketball
  • at twenty nine percent,
  • You do it by being one of the worst offenses in the National Basketball Association,
  • Your offense ranks twenty second in league scoring.
  • You do it because Anthony Davis
  • this early in the season
  • typical, he wasn't available
  • hip spasm, couldn't go.
  • Couldn't go.
  • So because he couldn't go, what were the Lakers going to do?
  • You would think, you should be able to beat the Houston Rockets,
  • And if you're gonna lose, lose, you know, a nail biter.
  • They're playing well, and all of a sudden
  • they hit shots that they never hit before
  • and, all right, I got it.
  • But to get your ass kicked
  • that is a different matter altogether.
  • Austin Reeves shooting twenty seven percent from three.

  • What are you really, really going to accomplish?

  • and nobody has the decency to be better than him,
  • He is, in NBA vernacular
  • an old man, a senior citizen
  • and he's still the best.
  • Not just the best player
  • but the best athlete, and the most conditioned dude on the squad.
  • How is that possible?
  • How is that possible?
  • But it is.
  • It is.
  • Lakers bench supposedly fortified.
  • Gabe Vinson's injured.
  • Cam Reddish missing wide open threes near the end.
  • When LeBron driving into the lane
  • and feeding him against Miami
  • and he can't close,
  • Cam Reddish better be careful.
  • He might not be in the league in the next year or so.
  • He better be careful.
  • He's running out of chances really
  • really, really, really quick.
  • And I'm just looking at it and I'm saying, damn.
  • And thirty two to nineteen
  • you're trailing at the end of the first quarters?
  • Interesting stat here.
  • The Lakers have been outscored by a staggering thirty two point six points per one hundred possessions in the first quarter this season.
  • Come on, man.
  • What y'all doing?
  • What y'all doing?
  • How is this possibly going to lead to any kind of winning?
  • Ultimately, you're going to put yourself in a hole
  • where you got to rely on Anthony Davis,
  • I know that when he's healthy and he brings his A game
  • the brothers all world.
  • The problem is how often does he do that?
  • How often is he available to do that?
  • That's the real question with Anthony Davis.
  • And I think, that's what we got to pay attention to
  • right here.
  • Los Angeles Lakers.
  • Oh, by the way, did I forget to mention that they're winless on the road?
  • They're O and five.
  • They're O and five.
  • They're O and five.

  • On the road.
  • With Anthony Davis and LeBron James as your cornerstones.
  • It's not good.
  • It's not good at all.

  • Know what I will say though?
  • They're not quite as bad as the Clippers.
  • And I'm not talking about record.
