Dude is reminding me more and more of Jeremy Lamb. I hope he proves me wrong since I hate to see someone fail, but without a doubt I'll stand by my thesis that Mudiay is the better prospect and will be the better player.

This could very well be true.

 

However, if you're the lakers, do you really care about fit when you already have Kobe, Nick Young, Clarkson, and Lou Williams all of the same team? And then you draft A PG that needs the ball to do what he does?

 

Doesn't seem like they had very much regard for fit on draft night.

You're saying they couldn't have used a Center?  They ended up having to go out and sign Roy garbage can Hibbert because they needed a starting Center...

In regards to defense. Oak/Randle is food defensively

Okafor wasn't the center they needed. I like the Hibbert move, underrated rim protector.

Not really. Everyone acknowledges Hibbert is good for that. The problem is that he's below average at every facet of the game except rim protection.

Some Laker fans contend Oak would clog the lane for Randle offensively. IDK

Lou Williams wasn't a Laker on draft night. Nick Young was on the trade block.

I thought they went with Russell because they thought they were going to get Cousins or Aldridge

This was when those rumors were HOT I think

If the Lakers really thought that, and drafted accordingly, someone pulled off a masterful troll job against them

I think Lakers management views talent trumps all, and in this case Russell was the best talent in their eyes plus has the star quality. Call it foolish, but the Lakers seem to put an emphasis on their private workouts and interviews, and Russell wowed them in a way that Okafor and Mudiay didn't.

Hey, I was just happy they kept the damn pick. laugh.gif I expected the pick to be Okafor and was fine with it. But the last week leading up the draft Russell was being tabbed as the #2 target, which was fine with me because I viewed him as the #2 prospect after Towns in the draft.

And Hibbert is the perfect fit next to Randle and the rest of the Laker pylons.

Yall have to give the Russell pick time.

I've been harsh on Otto Porter over the years, and since the playoffs, I've eaten some crow.

Same can be said about Russell. It's not entirely fair to judge his NBA prospects based off of 3-4 mos. that include summer league, training camp, preseason, and one real NBA game.

If by year 3 he's looking like Evan Turner, then it's probably fair to bring up hindsight.

@pretty tonyIt's not so much that a "bunch of dudes are worried about his appearance" : it's precisely that when a bunch of dudes are able to read people, or between the lines...

 

They can tell when D-Lo (Lamb too) are in certain situations, image is more important than the task at hand.

 

Like Dlo can be at the FT line and I can guaran-damn-tee you that he is worried more about licking his lips as the camera passes, than sinking the FT's

 

Type of dudes to show up 15minutes late to someones Funeral because they primped in the mirror for 45 minutes.

 

Image is important, but the job at hand comes first. 

 

This, I have a problem with, vain *** dudes that are vain first job second.
