So many of the characters in the movie Untouchables died though. Who is Kevin Costner?

Nice, another untouchable player. How many do we have now? We can add him to Hart.


I think he's the only one.

I was going to post the same thing last night.

Everyone except Bonga will be traded. A decade from now, Magic will be on TV talking how he found the best late draft pick in the history of the NBA

Just saw the Laker/King g-league game. Mo looked rusty. Bonga looked ready to move up. Using length well in a crowd. Boarding well. Making good decisions in the P&R.

He's not getting pushed around like he was in SL.


Welp. Make sure you watch their second game before you say he's ready to move up
I said he looked ready to move up in the 1st game. The second game isn't going to change how he looked in his first game.

He's currently has 18pts, 6rbs on 7-9 shooting (2-3 from the 3) halfway into the third.

I like what I see. Possibly a rotation player next year, assuming Rondo leaves. He's somewhat of an enigma, since he physically outclasses his competition in the g-league. G-league has value, but ideally, when a guy just outclasses everyone like that, you want to pit him against the top dogs in the NBA and see how he performs. Just not possible now since the Lakers are in win now mode. Still young, so they'll likely camp him in the g-league for a while.

I like this trend of 6'9''-6'11'' guys running point and being able to play multiple positions (Giannis, BI, Durant, Simmons, etc). Looks like he will develop into a solid shooter as well, which should increase his chances of PT next season. Good thing they kept him around, as second round contracts aren't guaranteed.

Interesting. How has his defense been?

Is he playing point forward?

I love our late draft scouting department. The only misses so far are Zu and Anthony Brown. Bonga looked terrible in Summer League, but preseason and G-League he’s been pretty good. I’d understand if they don’t bring him up this season (player development and keeping him away from our big trade this summer), but I hope he does get to spend some time with Lebron. He’s not as explosive, but there are definitely similarities.

He looks so much like Odom it's almost creepy.

I wouldn't even consider Thomas Bryant, Zu, and Anthony Brown misses. With the information at the time, it was clear they were arguable BPAs at the pick.

In the scenario we trade Zo or BI, seems like we have a replacement. Not too bad.

Good point. I forgot about BPA.

I hope he gets called up for at least a few games this season. I wanna see if he can translate what we're seeing to the NBA level.
