    All that passing skill of Lonzo will be for naught if Randle won’t outlet him the ball. Imagine Rambis leading the break instead of giving it up to Magic.

      That, along with his almost nonexistent perimeter shot, is just another reason to package him in a possible trade for PG. IJS

        Problem is, we’re not the only ones paying attention. Julius and JC provide a collective “meh” from potential trade partners.

            It goes to the problem in the well. A lot of Lakers fans on social media really don’t or won’t look at these players objectively.

            Living through tunnel vision, and after 4 years at the bottom, the Echo Chamber is as strong as ever.

            The denial on social media is strong in this fan base.

              LOL. I doubt there is a fan base out there that doesn’t do that, although maybe a team like the Nets will lead fans to lower opinions of their players due to previous disappointments. It’s just the nature of fans.

              I also don’t buy that the our scouts did not do a great job the last few years on our draft picks or that our young core was overrated and should now be jettisoned in some ridiculous idea of addition by subtracion.

              I know the current spin is Russell, Randle, and Clarkson are worthless but that’s more just the normal dumping that happens with change. Randle is an enigma and Clarkson is probalby peaked but they still have value, just maybe not best now for the Lakers.

              I’d have to give that award to Toronto Blue Jays. Toxic fanbase on Social Media.

      Yeah buddy! I’m pretty sure he might be. Unless he’s looking for a longer deal at potentially less per year (like Pau is doing with SAS).

    Jerry West wasn’t sold on Magic. Doc Buss was. He made it part of the condition when he bought the Lakers.

    Bill Laimbeer was drafted 65th by the Cleveland Cavaliers.

    Some GMs are just as out there as the rest of us dumb folks.

      they sure do have a way of finding injured teams in the playoffs.

      GSW needs to be careful with that witchcraft. it often has heavy penalties.

    Seems to me Lakers are looking to draft not necessarily the best available but one with an Alpha personality.

     
    • LakerTom (Publisher) 7:41 AM on May 18, 2017 Permalink | Log in to Reply

      I agree. I also think the desire for their pick’s willingness and confidence to work out against other potential picks is going to be an important factor in their final decision. Lonzo Ball may have to do some form of workout against De’Aaron Fox to prove he is that alpha “relentless” player they are looking for. If Lonzo wants the Lakers to draft him, he may have to earn it

        As much as the Lakers want that one on one or Lonzo’s willingness to do it, I don’t think it’s a good idea. Ball’s value is how he can make others around him better, not one-on-one which is Fox’s strength. Perhaps Lakers will do the 3-3 format like what they did with Russell during his workout. It was Russell’s ability to marshal 2 other unknown players that swayed the Lakers towards him I believe.

          If I were Lonzo, I wouldn’t do a 1-on-1 but would welcome a chance to do a 3-on-3 or 5-on-5. Can’t have your franchise player afraid to workout.

      I think when they drafted Russell they were hoping he was gonna be that alpha. But none of the young players seem to be that person able to impose his will like Kobe or lead like LeBron. Hard to look pass Lonzo Ball given his track record with UCLA and his determination to play for the Lakers.

      • LakerTom (Publisher) 8:52 AM on May 18, 2017 Permalink | Log in to Reply

        Morning, Seely. I still think Russell can be that alpha player and an All-Star. None of these guys are in Kobe’s or LeBron’s league but there is usually no more the 3 or 4 of those guys in the entire league at any time and they need help to win because it’s still a team game.

          Good evening Tom, its midnight here in Singapore. Perhaps you’re right. Perhaps he needs a couple more years to grow into that role, I really dont know.

      Lonzo is nothing like his father. Lavar should not factor into this. Lonzo is a team guy, not a selfish guy.

    People forget that GSW’s only chip came when Kyrie was injured.

    Now Tony Parker and Kawhi. There’s a trend here.

    If the GSW with MBrown win it all they will join the ’69 Boston Celtics and the ’80 Lakers in accomplishment.

    Teams so good they won despite of the coach.

      Yep, although it looks like Tony might be done for the season unless that was nowhere near as serious as it looked when he got carried off. I am reminded of Paul Pierce but looked more serious. Hope he’s OK.

        I think both are one-dimensional and pay lip service to core aspects of the game. Mike Brown can be an exceptional defensive coach when he has LeBron or Draymond to lock it down. Minus that kind of defender, the results are pretty poor. His offensive schemes are terrible. Mike D’Antoni is the opposite, great offense, no D. They should co-coach somewhere.
