So at the game today, during at least 50% of the timeouts, the Lakers coaches did not talk to their team. They stood on the court and did something that involved a clipboard. The players who were in the game at the time drank water and sat in their chairs. Those not currently in the game watched the Blazer Jam Squad. At one point, I thought a Laker reserve player was going to join them in dancing.
This happened even when the game was very very close, and I think even when the Lakers had actually called one of the timeouts.
I've never seen anything like it. Is this normal for the Lakers? Why?
