LeBron James was brutally honest after the team’s blowout loss to the Warriors in the Lakers first game of the season.
On Tuesday night, the Lakers shot an abysmal 10-40 from 3-point range.
During his postgame press conference, LeBron admitted that the team was not constructed of shooters.
LeBron James on Lakers’ poor shooting in loss to Warriors: “We’re getting great looks, but it could also be teams giving us great looks. To be completely honest, we’re not a team constructed of great shooting… It’s not like we’re sitting here with a lot of lasers on our team.” pic.twitter.com/VfqWnKcQ3D

Lakers fans agree with LeBron’s assessment and ripped into GM Rob Pelinka.
Jeanie Buss gave Lakers Vice President Of Basketball Operations and General Manager Rob Pelinka an extension through the 2025-26 season to match up with new head coach Darvin Ham. Why? No one knows. https://t.co/wNJniK3q5J

As direct a shot at Rob Pelinka as I can remember Bron ever sending. He's publicly identifying the OBVIOUS issue everyone can see and passive aggressively suggesting Rob do something about it. https://t.co/Z6edk9t7LQ

I'm so happy that Bron is finally calling out the roster for being poorly constructed, rather than just pretending that everything is fine. He's tried to go that route and it just doesn't work. Maybe Lakers will finally do something now lol https://t.co/WH0gUjO6Wb

Bron isn't wrong. Rob constructed this team and failed to address the glaring the need. https://t.co/DfxNQmEEiS
