I thought Julius looked great last night. Sure there were a bunch of plays where he didn't make an effort, but I'm not worried about that.
I just want him to shake the rust off & get these reps. His vision, strength and speed is something that few have on a basketball court.
Once he gets his touch back and his dribbling up... watch out.
I hope his conditioning isn't an issue in the future though. He can box out and play defense, he's just not doing it on every (more like 1 in 5
) possession right now.
Feel the same way about Russell. All these kids' turnovers are cuz his teammates aren't on the same train of thought as DLo.
He had 2 turnovers to Black where Black didn't even pick his head up to look for a pass.
Chemistry will solve Russell's problems. If anything I want him shooting more in these games. Get that NBA 3 range down (his shots are a little short right now).
Now the guy I have no love for is Mark Madsen.
What the **** are you running out there? We're getting outcoached so badly, it's almost comical.
THIS is the guy who is supposed to be the head coach of our analytics department? What a joke.
Mitch needs to completely redo that section of the coaching staff, because Madsen WILL NOT cut it.
If he's running our analytics, it's no wonder the Lakers have been trash since MDA left.
Get a real coach in here, run some real sets, get some real spacing, get some real cutters, I'm sick of this crap that's going on right now.
Literally, the only watchable offensive plays are those in transition. The half-court offense is disgusting.
