[quote="Kobesystem"]Funny thing is how every n2 pick, we say the lakers could of drafted x player instead...

Kuzma is the same situation. Kuzma was a good value pick, but the net's Jared Allen might of been a better pick for us[/quote

Yeah and Allen was taken 5 spots earlier. What's your point?]

Same with the Celt’s pick of Tatum. jayson could’ve been a better pick for us as well.

Strongly disagree. Ball dominant chuckers have no place in the modern NBA. Someone averaging 13 shots a game on over 30 minutes a game needs to have an EFG% higher than .506 and FTA above 2.9.

They’re very good just don’t know about them being the PERFECT fit.

You guys are so freaking funny. If Lakers is planning to trade Kuzma to other teams, I am sure that they wouldn't send him to represent the Lakers for the draft lottery night. Obviously, Kuz is untouchable.

You trade Kuzma to a team that wants to get into the top 4 lottery next year.

Love Kuzma, hope he shoots a lot better next season. If we had a better perimeter shooting forward next to Lebron, you can play Kuzma as a sixth man off of the bench. I still feel he is the only Laker drafted in the past few years to exceed expectations. The higher picks at best (which is probably DLO) have been only average as a Laker, and the rest have been somewhat less than met their potential. Plus Kuzma has that "It" factor; he reps the Lakers, they get a 4th pick, instead of the 11th. You didn't see the #2 picks from Duke or UCLA repping the team at the draft...

If Kuz doesn't get his 3-ball back to at least what it was his rookie season, he's going to be journeyman as soon as his current contract is up.

Who are the Lottery picks you think have exceeded expectations?

Kuzma has exceeded expectations because they were extremely low to begin with. The lotto picks were all young physically underdeveloped kids. Anyone who thought it was going to take time with them was sorely mistaken.

A forward who can’t defend, rebound or shoot the ball is untouchable? No wonder we have been the worst team in the league the past 6 seasons.

I actually made the sell high comment as a joke ...Kuz is not untouchable but he is a bargain and will be a very good 6th man when we put it all together this year

His "sell high" moment was right after his summer league finals MVP.

Bron has to be willing to step out of his comfort zone and actually play the four for Kuz to hit the bench.
