Dude is literally dedicating his entire life to a basketball forum yet understands nothing about basketball outside of statsheets.

Feel bad for the guy tbh.

You called Shaq, rookie Ariza, and last legs Artest who begged Kobe to carry him to a championship his defensive stoppers.

Your troll threads are doing nothing other than hurting your hero at an embarrassing 60+ posts per day pace.

Keep it up bro

anchors, plural.

dude always had elite defenders doing the heavy lifting for him.

ben wallace, varejao, stepdad west in cleveland

wade, battier in miami

didn't have any elite defenders during the homecoming, hence why the cavs were always turrible defensively.

now he has maybe the best pg defender in the business in lonzo.

look at the lakers defensive stats with and without bbb this past season.

Quote:
Through the first 47 games of the season, the Lakers defense was actually looking really good. Per nba.com, they had a defensive rating of 106.3, which was 6th in the NBA. They were 16th in opponents points per game averaging 111.4 and an overall net rating of 1.1, which was good enough for 14th in NBA, during that time. Now, remember, this is also with LeBron missing over a month due to injury.

Now we get to the Lonzo injury. In the 11 games since Lonzo went out, the Lakers have dropped to dead last in the NBA in opponent PPG giving up an average of 121.6 points per game.

Their defensive rating dropped to 116.8 (27th in the NBA) with an overall +/- of -10. That is bad enough for 2nd to last, in front of only the Phoenix Suns, who currently own the worst record in the NBA.


Not only have these defensive stats gone significantly down but almost every single defensive statistic for the Lakers has taken a hit. Call it a coincidence or whatever excuse you might think of, but the stats speak for themselves.

LeBron: Lakers missing ‘huge piece’ of defense without Lonzo

if that's not an anchor i don't know what is.

Shane battier guarded Durant in the heat days...

LeBron has led some of the worst defenses in the league since Miami. And of course the heat were an elite riley defense before he arrived.
