Mazzulla need to go. Night amd day from last year with a better roster
LeFlop gets more press for bowel movements. Bet they talk more about what he’s going to do next year than they do about the Nuggets’ first ever finals!What a joke the national sports media is, saying stuff like that was the greatest performance in a sweep I have ever seen.
LeFlop puts up 33 in a half and they act like it is the greatest performance in playoff history. Yet Murray had 30 in a half on the road in the previous game with 23 coming in the 4th quarter to win the game.
It is clear none of them have watched Nuggets this season, they have been the best team in the league for most of it and Jokic has been playing lights out all year.
They made smart trades and finally got AD/LeBron healthy.Lakers were barely over .500. Took divine (league) intervention for them to make the playoffs.
The TimberWolves were a much tougher and truer test for the Nuggets in round one than the hapless Lakers in WCF.They made smart trades and finally got AD/LeBron healthy.
They were simply a really good team down the stretch and into the playoffs.
NBA fans knew the West was wide open AFTER Denver.
Same as it was for Dallas last year.
MEM had never won anything in the playoffs and melted down with the Ja nonsense.
PHX had obvious issues with depth, Ayton and CP3 being 87 years old.
Lakers made themselves awful with a terrible off-season but recovered in season.
Now we see if they shoot themselves in the foot or not this off-season.
They finally have some young, high upside players around AD/Bron but so often cant avoid the shiny 30+ year-old big-name chase.
LeBron as de facto GM has been awful for every team he joins after year 1 or 2.
Lakers just hit a wall after playing full out for so long in recovering from the 11 seed area.The TimberWolves were a much tougher and truer test for the Nuggets in round one than the hapless Lakers in WCF.
The league really, really tried with its ref-Storm-Troopers to steal some games to the Lakers. To the point where Hoops fans around the globe memed the ref-jokes over all of social media. Yet even with all that interference...it was a cold sweep.
I was a Laker fan for decades. An NBA fan for years beyond that. Then I got clean. No more dirty needles.
I admire and respect great Lakers like Magic, West, Kareem, Kobe, Shaq, etc., and I’m a Celtics fan. Lebron is NOT a great Laker.Lakers just hit a wall after playing full out for so long in recovering from the 11 seed area.
Denver is also just really, really good.
The Lakers would have crushed Minny in round 1 imo.
Media never shuts up about them so that can be annoying and the insane moves that get discussed as real by talking heads wanting attention is enough to drive anyone off a cliff.
I was a Lakers a fan during Showtime cause who wasn't and I didn't have a local team yet. Once I got a local team they became a rival.
It should be a nice boring off-season for them but can they stand it? Will they simply retain their assets, add a couple pieces and go to work? Unlikely.
Whatever the case we will hear about them making insane moves daily even if they mostly stand pat.
