      I can’t remember any comments from Kobe about Lonzo. Wonder if Kobe doesn’t see a natural connection due to the huge differences in their approach to the game. Scorer vs. facilitator. Or maybe Kobe didn’t like LaVar’s comments about Lonzo potentially becoming a bigger star than Kobe due to social media. Or Lonzo choosing LeBron instead of Kobe as his favorite player growing up.

      Last thing Lonzo needs right now is to be trapped in a room with Kobe while he’s playing like Smush. Could get ugly. ….lol

    Notes: Agree that LB, Ingy and Kuz are very important to any Freebies looking at us for next season. I think it’s important to have Randle and Clarky in any second unit. Gotta have a decent, holding, bench. Lopez is a mystery so far, great and nuttin. KCP is a nuttin for me, if he isn’t consistently nailing 3’s. We are 5-8 going into tonite and if it isn’t about wins, Luke, why we playing Brewer and a couple others? Give Zubac, Hart and Blue some real game time. Not just a few minutes as fill in. Give Zubby 35 minutes one game. Next game let Blue play 35 or so.

    PS-LB looked really good the last game. Keep it going kid!!

      I agree for the most part, it may not be up to us when it comes to Julius. He’ll be an unrestricted free agent come the summer. Clarkson is under contract for two more seasons after this one, I don’t know why he keeps getting brought up as an issue this summer. Unless you’re talking about trading him, he’s a Laker until the summer of 2020.

      KCP comes off the books, Lopez the same. Of the two I’m more inclined to keep Brook. If you asked me who I’d like to see take that max contract it’s be Boogie Cousins or Paul George. The reality is there’s most of a season of games to be played and then playoffs. A lot could factor into a free agents thinking between now and then.

        Yeah on season to be played. And yes I know KCP and Lopez are off the books. I think Cuz and or PG would be good choices if we can. If we talk about LBJ, gotta allow (he has to) money for one of the others. IMO

    I’m a little confused about we stock up these young kids and willingly let them move on or trade em or try to trade em. Baze, he gone, DLO, he gone, EDavis, he gone, Black, he gone, Randle and Clarkson, they may be gone. So for now, just now, we are keeping Ingy, Ball, Kuz and…? Thought we were raising our own stars.

      How many of those guys left the Lakers and become All-Stars?

        Not my point Seannie. So we giving up on Randle at 22, Clarkson at 25? I think we thought we are raising our own? There were some willing to let Ingy go. I think DLO might have a chance at AS soonest.

          Right DJ, he could. Just for now the tally is 0.

          As for the player movement…Some of it is incompetence, some of it is…S**t happens.

    I thought Lonzo was Magic? I know, Magic couldn’t shoot either, but I would have liked to take the pressure off LB 3 months ago. I fear that his shot won’t work in the NBA, at least until he shoots that 45% and up like Jamal. I also think he would be super with a a PG and LBJ to seek out! Clarky doesn’t get to play with Lonzo so much and Kuz, Ingy, Randle and even Hart are just babies still. If Magic plan works and you throw LBJ and PG or Cuz (2 of the 3) into our youth core, Lonzo will truly be unleashed. He could still be unleashed with the proper young guys to run with him. I like the idea of Kuz and Randle. I’m not sold on KCP, yet. Early.

    PS-And this whole notion that this season is not about wins, then why isn’t Zubby playing some? If we have given up on him, cut him loose. Not about wins, my eyes tell me different Lukie Boy

      The only answer I have for Magic and his shooting: Only one PG shot 50/50/90 in a Finals. Earvin Johnson.

    Bledsoe isn’t gonna be happy coming off the bench and wouldn’t we own him next year as well? Why are we always trying to trade Clarky? He should be starting next to Lonzo.

      Clarkson is coming off the bench because he is a poor fit defensively and offensively alongside Lonzo, DJ. Lonzo needs a strong defender to take elite opposing point guard and Clarkson’s poor defense is his Achilles heel. Similarly, Jordan needs the ball in his hands to be effective on offense, which makes him a poor fit to start with Lonzo but excellent option off the bench.

      To his credit, Jordan has really shared the ball well and made some great plays for teammates as Lonzo’s backup. I remember Michael H. and I both posting Clarkson should be Lonzo’s backup instead of Caruso or Ennis before Luke made the move. Clarkson is not going to start for the Lakers. That ship sailed last year. Can’t keep him if we want to sign 2 max free agents.

      As for Bledsoe, he would be an upgrade over Clarkson at both ends. I also love the idea of getting Dudley when he recovers from injury. Career 40% 3-point shooter and we need a solid defensive backup at the 3. Would be a great deal if Suns don’t find better offer.

      Key is you have two expiring contracts in Bledsoe and Dudley this summer, which would be far easier to get rid off than Deng and Clarkson who would both have 2 years left. We improve the roster and our cap situation for next summer. Win-Win for Lakers.

        Bledsoe has two years left on his deal. And besides that I see no reason for the Suns to take on Deng. They are already trying to dump Chandler for any Bledsoe deal. I really can’t see them taking on Deng with 3 years left. By the Clarkson has been pretty good on defense this year.

          Aloha, Michael. Yes, Clarkson and all of the Lakers are playing better defense this year and I agree Suns would probably not want to make the trade but they may not find a better option. Right now, Clarkson’s value is at a peak.

          The other side of making this trade is it could open up some room to keep Randle, who could find a future role as our small ball 5 if he can continue to play defense like he did on Wednesday night. I would make the trade if available for that reason. I could be happy with LeBron and the Randle we had Wednesday night.

          It will be a lot easier to move 2 expiring contracts next summer than trying to move Deng’s and Clarkson’s 2-year deals, especially with most teams over the cap and few teams having cap space for free agents. Expiring contracts could be valuable next summer.

      I don’t think Bledsoe is in the cards for us especially since the Suns are looking to dump Chandler in the deal. They ain’t looking to take on Deng and we’re not looking to take on any salary past this summer.

      Never understood why folks were trying to force feed Ennis, Caruso, etc as Lonzo’s backup. JC is fine in that role.

        I’m sorta good with Clarky as back-up PG, but I think his minutes should be much higher.

        Just looking at the players, Bledsoe and Chandler > Clarkson and Deng, There could be sweetners involved, Ennis, Caruso, LNJr, Bogut, Bryant, etc.

          Fansided has 10 possible destinations for Bledsoe, and Lakers are one. Suggests sending Deng and either Kuzma or Randle. Too early for me to pull that trigger.

    Oopsy daisy LT. Over-matched tonite. I’ll catch you in between Laker games and see what your thoughts are on who to bring up, let go, re-sign, etc. Went 13 games more than almost everyone thought.

    PS-Imagine if we would have got Verlander.

        Yep. We are so young and I think the Big Time has shocked them, but will be waaaaay better prepped for next year. Kinda would like to DH C Fraizer. Can’t do worse than 0-27!

          We’ll be fine, DJ. Playing on house money and showing up. We showed great character for a young team on the road in the ALDS when every bounce and break went against us. We’re getting better every game and it will show as we sweep the next 3 games.
