DLo's exit interview. Just listen to the first 15 seconds.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=T6FVXFZ_oII


Points of emphasis by Lakers:
1. Leadership
2. Consistency
3. Changing body

He's done #3! Numbers 2 and 1 coming?

How do you improve "leadership" in the offseason? Like go to TED talks or enroll at Stanford to complete a business leadership course?

"I don't have specifics for you, but, uhm. I know."
Btw, if you actually listen to more than just the 11 seconds he'll give you some clues.

You also can't really improve game-to-game consistency during the off-season either.

Ball is going to help lift the cloud over d lo, by making him one of the most promising young scorers.....I think the ask and expectations were a bit to high for d lo...but when Ball is helping D lo put up strong consistent scoring numbers he's going to get a lot of love

Since he has done #3 and has been working all off season at the facility, a little of that can also be #1.

If he keeps at #3 and ends up looking like Bane, maybe #1 will come naturally.

Listening to the video, you not only know he's young. But a lot of this is new to him. Year 3, along with his new found muscles, will be awesome for him.

Agreed. The expectations for a 19 year old were way high. Wall, Harden, Curry ect, it took those guys years to break out.

If DLO works hard, he can be up there with those guys.

I think DLO would have had a breakout year this coming year on his own. However, I also believe that playing next to a player like Ball will be an advantage.

Think about this: the other guards he's had to play next to the last couple of years: Kobe, JC, Nick Young, Lou.

What do those guys have in common? And what do those guys lack that Ball has?

DLO w/Ball, discussed ad naseum.

DLO w/Jax, a little rougher, b/c Ingram/Jules/Jax will be a terrible shooting trio in 2017-18 (maybe they improve over time). However, Jax would help defensively and also has ball handling skills.

I think the D'Lonzo pairing is better, but there are some things Jax can bring too.

Russell shot 38% on pullup 3s after the ASB. I think his catch & shoot percentage, especially if he has Lonzo getting him the ball, will improve naturally. If he can consistently shoot ~36-38% on pullup 3s, he'll have a breakout year next year IMO.

When he was roasting teams in preseason with pullup 3s (granted they soft hedging on him for some reason) he was looking like a bonafide star. Maybe even a future superstar.

I really hope he's been working on these.

Yes. I truly believe if we get Ball he wll make life so much easier for Dlo that he may average 20+ppg on 56+ TS% next season. No more pressure of having to get everyone else involved and Ball has a special ability find the open man.

His jumper was like wack-a-mole. Money on catch & shoots, struggling on pull-ups prior to the break, and vice versa afterward. It's there, he just needs to put it all together.
