I’m a Lakers fan too.
Up until a week ago, I thought we were tracking well. Maybe not good enough to make playoffs, but certainly better than I thought we’d be.
The last week has been terrible. Goes to show that even though Lonzo has played poorly personally, he’s capable of making the rest of the group play far better with him than without him.
I thought we’d be a bottom 5 to 10 team in the league and it appears that’s where we’ll end up.
I’m not an Ingram fan, but he’s certainly improved this year. Lonzo is a keeper. Kuzma can be our current equivalent of Cedric Ceballos. I also have liked Nance Jnr since he was drafted.
I haven’t been a Randle fan. He’s an undersized power forward that doesn’t have much of an outside shooting game. Something an undersized power forward needs in modern NBA.
I still don’t get the Luol Deng signing.
I don’t think Paul George is the answer. We have Kuzma, Ingram and Lonzo so we need a power forward and centre. Whilst Paul George would be a great addition, I think by the time he starts declining, will be the time we’d want to be challenging.
Lebron is no chance.
If we could somehow get Anthony Davis, then we should go for it. If it meant trading Randle, Ingram and Clarkson then I’d do it (doubt it would be enough).
The only way I’d support getting Paul George is if we could somehow dump Luol Deng to OKC for him or if we somehow got Anthony Davis by trade.
Other than that, we should take notes from New York and just wait it out until we draft some more talent.
