Hypothetically, Lonzo would be great in the open court, but if in the halfcourt they'd have to run it through D'Lo me thinks.

If we had Lonzo and DLo starting in the backcourt, who would be our starting SF? nerd.gif

Yea Lonzo isn't that great at P&R mainly because UCLA doesnt run it a lot. But he is amazing at running an offense and open court.

Just have DLo run all P&R and Lonzo do the rest of the ball handling & setting the offense up. Luke's offense is fluid where once you get past the 1st option its pretty positionless.

I would really like to see a death lineup in a couple years of

Fultz & Russell backcourt
PG & Ingram forwards
Randle as a small ball 5


I'm Still taking Fultz over Ball

You run halfcourt offense thru lonzo and it's gonna be a similar learning curve as we've seen from Russ the past two seasons.

And as high as I am on Randle, he cannot play the 5. Neither can nance

Not permanently no. But a small ball lineup to expand leads or try to get an offense going. He could.

Randle has a higher chance of getting traded than DLo is

In the open court, Lonzo is dynamite. But in a halfcourt setting, I think he'll be a work in progress to begin with.

Whatever you gain on offense you lose on defense. Neither him or Nance can protect the rim at all. It's Luke's go to tank lineup at the moment

I agree with this too. I think he makes moves, and it'll be around D'angelo. 

 

I think it'll be a huge mistake and we can agree to disagree on this. 

post #15560 of 17491

I honestly don't care, just as long as we get one of Fultz, Ball, or Jackson. We'll figure out the rest later.

I'm not really either, but kid is a player, he should be a really good defender from day 1 even if his offensive game doesn't translate immediately.

For real **** is hilarious. Having Julius switch every pick and roll too. Son was getting lit up every time. **** worked to perfection.

People get too caught up in who plays what position in the backcourt. The reality is a Fultz/Dlo or Ball/Dlo backcourt would have us set for a long time. Both positions can shoot, run the offense, etc.

It's a good problem to have especially when you consider the lack of great under guards under the age of 25.

Oh yeah, Dlo youngest Laker to score 40 in a game. What a ******* accomplishment. In a franchise that had Magic, Worthy & Kobe, Dlo was the youngest to 40 pimp.gif (something he can hang on his wall and hold on to when he gets traded nerd.gif )

Yuuuuup. I'll take any of them.


Zubac
Randle
Ingram
Clarkson
DLo

Top 3
Houston pick
Nance

All under 24.

Top 3 could slide Clarkson to the bench, or come off the bench, whatevs, but that would be a great 8 man young core.

Moz/Deng off the bench next year, maybe they keep Swaggy for a year, add 4-5 more wins next year, and then 2019 becomes the year we potentially break out as everyone reaches 21-26 with 2-5 years under their belts, plus maybe add a Paul George.

I prefer that path, to trading 4-5 of our kids for 2 "stars" 8/8 times.

It really doesn't matter who they pick as long as they keep the pick. The top 3 are all set & all fill a need. Praying we keep the pick. Praying we don't trade the pick if we do get it.

20-50. 12 games left. Right now PHX has 22 wins so we can only afford 1-11 record or maybe 2-10 if PHX wins a game.

Would like PHX to get to 25 wins to make me feel safe. Doubt it tho. They're committed to the tank.

In a regular season game. Magic did it in the '80 finals as a rookie

True. Cant wait to see Dlo in a playoff setting. He usually always shows out on national TV games. Hollywood Russell forreal
