And with the Lakers now having last seasons' 6th Man of the Year AND the Runner up, it will mean LeBron can get a bit more rest, as a bench featuring Harrell, Kuz, Schroder, Caruso and THT, will score some points, a lot of them...!

Barring any injuries of course. I'm afraid of the injury bug hitting our team this year due to the shortened season for the Lakers. Other teams had WAY more rest.

If we stay healthy and have enough 3-point shooting, we may average 120 ppg or close to it.

Even more than this past season, we will resemble the Showtime Lakers because our fast break will be even better.

The Lakers added 2 scorers in Schroder and Harrell but the lost some defense and experience in Rando, Green, DH and Bradley. They’re all tough guys and were valuable in the playoffs.

huh KCP aint no option... he's just a spot up shooter who usually fails spectacularly when trying to create his own shot.
Kuzma and Caruso are way more of an "option" than him

So we have 4 studs who can get 30 plus if they get enough touches.

At least 2 of said 4 studs on the hardwood at all times.

Kuz can start when LeBron load manages as well as Trez for AD, team may not skip a beat against lesser opponents.

I’m good with that, a motivated Kuzma instead of KC$40milP, anyway u slice it, our top 4 options are gangsta and even our 5th is pretty good (LeBron prob play 30mpg in reg season, don’t see a drop off in offense when he sits now)

We didn't have a 3rd big scorer but we had one of the best defenses in the league and the other guys shared the rest of the scoring burden which is usually a good thing. We made trade offs. We will see if they get us another ring. We did get younger, that's great.

Defense preaching defense of course! And u right!
Still got Vogel and his system, DPOY, playoff LeBron, Caruso, KCP, Schroeder, Wes and next to AD Montrezl.
I mean how athletic is LeBron-Montrezl-AD front court at covering rim/paint/even the long snipers

Not even talking about LeBron and AD, check out our 2nd unit/depth/role players

Schroeder-Caruso/Kuz-Wes-Montrezl-Gasol

I mean how potent can that offense be by themselves

We'll probably see more of the go small closers.

How is Harrell as a closer?
