TANKING SZN?! - Let’s face it, as of now, the Lakers have no chance of making it to the playoffs. They’re 11th in the west and 9 games behind the 8th spot with most of the roster hurt and LeBron on restricted minutes. Tanking seems like the most reasonable thing to do at this point, seeing that there’s no point in trying to win games now. Tanking, in a nutshell, is when team purposely try to lose games in order to get better draft picks (usually teams with the worst records get first dibs on top college prospects). Besides the upset fans who paid good money to see LeBron and the Lakers dominate the West, there’s many upsides to the tank. For example, Lebron gets to rest up for next season and focus on maintaining his body. The Lakers get a chance for a better draft pick and the rookies get a chance to showcase their skills. What do you all think? Tank or go for the 8th spot?

BRANDON IS OKAY - Lakers forward Brandon Ingram just underwent a surgery called thoracic decompression in his right arm. Last week after a check up for his shoulder, it was revealed that he had deep venous thrombosis; a condition caused by blood clots. Following the procedure, the blood clot was removed and blood is now flowing properly throughout his body. Unfortunately, the condition is sitting him out for the rest of the season. However, doctors believe he will need three to four months to recover and should be fine for the start of the next season. Brandon was a key part of the Lakers squad, averaging 18 points, 5 rebounds, and 3 assists per game. What do you guys think? Brandon coming back stronger or the condition was a major setback?
