Yea, agree just thought it was kind of funny that they are sharing a locker room
What do you guys feel about the starting rotation for the beginning of the season? Anyone think kobe might move to the 3 to allow clarkson to stay in the lineup? Assuming no big trade moves of course.
Hey if he turns out to be the crazy combo of Steph and Beard that everyone is raving he'll be then obviously it'll be a great pick, hopefully that vision is able to be on full display from Day 1.
I think the problem is more about who is around him to pass the ball. A big trade move is coming though, there is no incentive for the lakers to suck another year considering that the pick currently belongs to the sixers
Most of the athletic wings are 3s though. 2 guard is a much weaker position outside of Beard and Klay. It'd be a mistake to put Kobe at the 3 this year in my opinion, bring Clarkson off the bench he'll flourish better that way anyway. I don't know what they do with the 3 if they get one of the bigs in FA, which is why them passing on RJ is so puzzling. Nance isn't a pressing need.
Kobe this season wanted a max of 32 minutes. Byron thought he could handle more.
For all the people hating the Russell pick, I'll say this. Russell has certain basketball qualities that can't be taught or developed. Watch a few games and you'll see he figures out plays 2 or 3 steps before anyone else. He's pointing to his teammates were do be in order to get their open shots. His feel for the game can't be taught simple as that and it's a ridiculously exciting prospect.
His passing ability is insane. He sets up guys so easily for easy shots.
The only cons about him that need to be fixed are his reliance on his left hand and his tendency to settle for jumpers too much. He doesn't drive to the rim as much as I like and when he does there's times where he doesn't know when to stop and just take the quick mini pull up or controlled floater.
dude was cool with missing games due to over usage in the beginning of the year. dont think he will have any problems. kobes not stupid, he knows what time it is.
im happy with the pick wanted the big dude but we needed a guard. cant complain. so excited for the season. we need a center. not lma. Mitch already has everything planned out. lakers back to being root worthy .
