Lakers make it official that they landed Boozer through amnesty waiver claim.
LeBron James, Kyrie Irving & Kevin Love > LeBron James, Dwyane Wade & Chris Bosh
Maybe the problem with Byron is holes in the resume? New Jersey Nets? New Orleans Hornets? THOSE TEAMS DON'T EVEN EXIST! BK
Like Kaman last season, Boozer is this year’s “pointless” signing for the Lakers. AK
If the Lakers were playing for something this year, I'd feel differently. Boozer could help. But they're not, so it's counterproductive. BK
Guess we know what the B in the Lakers' Plan B stood for: Boozer, Carlos
It's also worth noting: NOBODY LIKES CARLOS BOOZER. Like, nobody. Mrs. Boozer probably doesn't like Carlos Boozer. BK
The way this makes sense: The Lakers think he's awful, but know fans will recognize the name, see it as a positive. Best of both worlds. BK
As I said before, I don’t see the point w/Boozer. Not gonna make them contenders. Blocks Randle, Kelly. And no, he’s not a center. AK
The Lakers clearly have absolutely no self-awareness right now. BK
Lakers taking Carlos Boozer instead of giving time to a more developmental player reflects a desire to compete better now.
Reggie Bullock and C.J. Wilcox round out the current 12-man roster with three spots available.
Clippers Two-Deep: 1. C.Paul – J.Farmar 2. J.Redick – J.Crawford 3. M.Barnes – J.Dudley 4. B.Griffin – G.Davis 5. D.Jordan – S.Hawes
I gotta make it..
Oh man, a throwback to college newspapering, thanks to the Montana J-School's centennial publication. http://t.co/8RRgTlrbzU
Randle said Summer League is easier offensively than NCAA in the sense that the spacing on the floor allows for more room to operate.
Asked Randle his preference on O. Said he likes to start facing up if possible against bigger players. Will take smaller guys in the post.
Julius Randle on the Lakers fan experience at Summer League: "It's ridiculous. It's kind of like Vegas is L.A. almost."
Julius Randle on Las Vegas: "It's almost like it's L.A. here." Lakers fans everywhere.
L.A. shot just 34.8% and committed 24 turnovers, hitting only 3 of 23 triples and 14 of 21 free throws in the loss to Philly.
FINAL: Lakers lose to the 76ers, 85-63. Julius Randle and Kevin Murphy led the way with 12 a piece.
Well, I mean this is the Orlando Summer League CHAMPION Philadelphia 76ers we're talking about ...
LAL chopped 12 points off PHI's halftime lead to make it a 66-56 deficit after 3. Draft picks Randle & Clarkson continue to play well.
At the end of three quarters here in Vegas, Lakers trail by 10 to the Philadelphia 76ers, 66-56.
Julius Randle in 16 minutes tonight: 10 points (4 of 9 FG's), 5 boards, 3 assists, 1 steal, 1 block, 3 TO's. Some good, versatile stuff.
Much better energy from LAL, led by Randle, has 'em within 9 thanks to a 13-3 run midway through the 3rd.
Lakers trailed by 22 at the half. They've since cut their deficit in half with 5:51 to go in the 3rd quarter. 54-43, 76ers.
Randle picked it up in the 2nd, & has kept the pedal down to start the 3rd. A no look dime + a pretty drive to his right got oohs and ahhs.
Two great back-to-back offensive plays by Julius Randle. Exactly what you want to see during Summer League
Julius Randle drives straight through the middle, lays it in. 8 points, 4 boards, 2 assists for Julius
Julius Randle feeds Jordan Clarkson for three to start the 3rd quarter. That's 9 points now for Clarkson.
TOR leads 52-30 after a brutal 2nd Q for LAL (just 10 points). Randle did have a few nice moves. Clarkson was good in the 1st Q.
At the end of the first half, Lakers down by 22 to Philadelphia. 52-30.
The Lakers were outscored 32-10 in the second quarter, trail PHI 52-30 at the half.
Like what I've seen from Randle in the last 2 min. … frustrated w/LAL's offense, he's gone hard to the hoop 3 straight times. 2 buckets.
Philly is out-working LAL here, enough for a 44-24 edge late in the 2nd. LAL have scored just 4 points in the period, 1:59 left.
Ed Davis gets 2-year deal from Lakers, per Yahoo. Ed Davis?
Yay, the Lakers have finally scored in the 2nd quarter. 38-21, 6ers.
It's a 16-0 PHI run to start the 2nd Q now, LAL failing to score in nearly 5 minutes. Randle has 3R, 1A, 1S & 1B, 0 for 2 on O.
The Lakers start of the second quarter looking an awful lot like the first, the Lakers have yet to score and we're almost 5 minutes in.
