Yea. And bags around his eyes.
Who was the photographer for that picture and what did he have against Kansas?

Missed a lot of open shots tonight but he’ll usually hit those. His defense is what’s going to make him playable though, and I’ve been very encouraged by what I’ve seen so far.

Svi said he grew up playing PG and SG. Had a growth spurt and his shot kept developing, but that’s why he said we shouldn’t be surprised with his ballhandling and decision making skills.

His shot got cold in the 4th but shot well besides. He made shots when he needed to.

Defense was impressive tonight. Already looking like a true 3 and D player.

There were a couple of shots that went half way down the basket before popping back out, it's one of those nights. But the defense was solid, guys were having a tough time trying to get by him.

Very exciting - he has the potential to be our best shooter since...Glenn Rice?

He just needs to make sure he's consistent (3/12 yesterday). You're not going to make every shot, but if you're open, you need to nail it.

3 years, $4.6 million contract? that's more than usual for a late second round pick. Lakers must be very high on Svi.

Just the threat of having an outside shooter will pay dividends. It will be fun, with the way we pass, the watch defenses shift and scramble like crazy.

A bench of Svi, Hart, Rondo, Lance, Wagner is a deep bench. Lebron should be able to get plenty of rest.

Tiny arms or not, the kid knocks down some nice shots...

Svi moves to backup 3 for me.


Two quick comments:

1. KCP as the #3 SG? His contract is awfully large for that. I guess there will be injuries that may move BI to SF or Hart to PG.

2. I share your hope that Kuzma, Hart, Wagner, BI, Svi and Ball make significant strides forward this next year. I am not convinced that it will really happen. If they do, however, we will have an interesting and competitive team.

More and more Svi is lookong like the steal of the draft at 47. His game is versatile, his defense is consistent, and his stroke is pure. Love thus kid.

I remember last year finding it difficult to believe that Kyle Kuzma was as good as he was as, and yet the 27th pick in the 2017 draft.

I'm finding myself having the same difficulty believing this guy is as good as he is, and yet the 47th pick in the draft. He not only strokes that shot, but he's solid athletically, and he also is a play maker. Damn!

The Lakers drafting has been phenomenal.

I believe the exact opposite. I believe they were trending upwards, and that the additions of two basketball minded geniuses, James & Rondo, will help accelerate their individual and collective performances

Glad he's a Laker. Man I'd hate to trade any of our young guys. I get it, but I'd hate to trade them.
