  • ... there is a small that has to crack back on on of the Lakers bigs... for the exact same reason Lebron is going to have to check guards in space... which he can do... but not for the entire game. Lakers are gonna have a bych of a time guarding tandem backcouts when they're running two bigs... Houston, Portland, Denver and Utah... and the lakers really don't have "great" deep shooters... they've got decent catch and shoot role players... Houston is going to force Lebron guard Harden and Westbrook... screen/switch/screen/go.... all day. That's tough.

  • I swear, there is no pleasing espn. There's always an issue with the lakers every year no matter what we do. Yet they don't say the same thing to other teams. I'm tired of this bullshit and yet they get surprised about people the hating news.

  • Woj knows. Iggy is going to shift the balance between the LA teams. The best clutch finals player that isn't on a contender. I think he'll be with the Lakers. Trade KCPs money and some picks for him

    MisterAlerionMisterAlerion22 gün önce
  • actually they dont really need kuzma IF everybody stays healthy. but it'd be better if he step up his game so that lakers could still be a top team and to keep AD even if LBJ's career declines after few more season.

  • Kuzma no way in earth, could form a big 3 with Bron and AD... He is a role player and will remain a role player. As long as he brings a solid defense, that will be more than enough from his side...

  • I'm sorry guys but the Laker's don't need Kuz ,, Javale & Dwight are going to combine for 20 & 10 , every night Danny Green and Quinn Cook are going to combine for five 3's per night and 20 points .. The Lakers are deep, and they don't need a 3rd star. The Lakers have 8 genuine starters to rotate .
