If we can keep KCP and/or Randle, all the better, but here is a realistic depth chart for 2018 if we can't keep them but everything else falls into place, i.e., PG & LeBron come in free agency, and BLo signs for the room exception with the hope of getting a big contract the following year:

PG: Lonzo, Ennis
SG: Paul George, Hart
SF: Ingram, Kuzma
PF: LeBron, Nance
C: Brook Lopez, Zubac

Question: If this comes to fruition, can this team compete with the Warriors?

For comparison, here is the Warriors current depth chart:

PG: Curry, Livingston
SG: Thompson, Young
SF: Durant, Iguodala
PF: Draymond, West
C: Zaza, McGee

In my opinion...

Lonzo<<Curry
PG=Klay
Ingram<<Durant
Lebron>>Draymond
Lopez>>Zaza

It looks pretty even to me. If Durant or Curry has so much as an ankle sprain, I think we could beat them.

Thoughts?

I agree based on the current skill level of our players, but assuming you see the expected growth of Lonzo and BI's talent then perhaps the Lakers can take the series.

In 2021 I might agree.

Your lineup isn't likely. Lakers have to waive bird rights to Lopez to sign 2 max free agents (Lebron and George). Unless Lopez will resign with significant discount (like $8 million), he won't be a Laker next season.

I like your line of thinking and hope it comes true....!
And I think it could be a team that could compete with the Warriors for about 2 seasons, by then Lebron and Lopez will be old, injured or retired...
