Head to head, the under is 21-8 in the last 29 meetings, the road team is 3-1-1 ATS in the last five meetings and the Lakers are 3-0-1 ATS in the last four meetings.
"They have to rebuild this roster right?" said Van Gundy.
At 30-36, L.A.is in 11th place in the Western Conference and seven games out of the final wild card spot. James leasds the team in minutes per game.
Hart has been playing through knee tendinitis for much of the season, but recently revealed the issue is much more serious.
However, that was Van Gundy's point: The Lakers' widespread problems merit the consideration of a potentially radical solution.
Mark Jackson asked, "What are you doing, seriously?"
The past few weeks have not been good for the Los Angeles Lakers.
That had Jackson saying flatly, "Okay, LeBron James is not getting traded". At least, that's what Jeff Van Gundy thinks.
Before long, ESPN announcer Mike Breen jumped in and supported Jackson's position, saying of a potential trade of James, "Bottom line, there's no way that's happening".
Walton said he spoke to the Lakers about Ingram's condition, and LeBron James said Ingram was with the Lakers earlier in the day before they played without three injured starters in a 120-107 loss to the Celtics.
That openness and blatant expression of faith not only irritated players, but also brought them back to that very moment as the very start of what now seems like a never-ending saga linking the young core of this team with the six-time All-Star forward. It most likely will not be the Lakers.
Los Angeles Lakers guard Andre Ingram scored 19 points in his National Basketball Association debut last April.
This news hasn't actually caught Laker Nation by surprise.
They trail San Antonio by 7 games for the final playoff spot.Los Angeles will nearly certainly miss the playoffs for a franchise-record sixth straight season, and James likely will stay home for the first time since 2005.
Jeff Van Gundy delivered quite the spicy take during Saturday's telecast.
