I think so.. but I noticed in that thread that someone posted recent pictures of Tatum working with Kobe. I suppose I shouldn't feel any kind of way about it, but I'd rather see him with our guys. And if he is with our guys and we don't have footage then just disregard what I'm saying.

Edit: Kobe with Tatum

Tatum is out there working out with Joel Embiid, Kobe, etc he is putting in work this off-season While Lonzo is out here benching with high school form

...and gotten noticeably bigger...and has been watching film with Magic.


Hopefully not reruns of the Magic Hour.


Or at the races with Jim & your buddy Chaz!

Who cares about height? No one's gonna block the ball with their head.
Standing reach is where it's at

+ wingspan.

Why, Randle got rejected so much + his small hands.

Really? That's the reason? And not forced shots against double teams?

Ok.

Can you imagine a guy like JaVale McGee or LeBron James on headers in soccer?

Of the young core, Ingram is the key to the Lakers success.
And of course he is the oldest or has the most time in the NBA.

And hopefully he will be the best second pick.

He is close to star stats.

You really fail at this, maybe stay in the kiddie pool?

I think so, too. If he improves as much as I think he will, BI will become that 2nd shot creator/scorer that Lebron flourishes with like he did alongside DWade in MIA and Kyrie with the Cavs.

Isn't BI closer to 6'8/6'9?


Yea. Bron measured 6’7.25 without shoes himself and they looked about even.

https://pbs.twimg.com/media/DWM-p6sVAAAkI-4.jpg Here’s the Rising Stars pic. Rumours Boston players grew to 6’9..
Non combine measurements are iffy to me cuz they don’t account for hair often times, so Ingram, Trey Young, Sexton all had a bit taller measurements - latter two confirmed


if you look at that picture...we list BI and Kuz @ 6'9" and Ball @ 6'6"....Kuz looks like he has at least 0.5" on BI......and Kuz looks like he has 4"-5" on Ball. Kuzma was the only one measured at the combine....@ 6'8" without shoes....@ 6'9.5" with shoes. If that is accurate, then BI is probably around 6'9" with shoes, and Ball is 6'5" with shoes.


Idk , it’s hard to be precise when guys are listed more than a couple inches apart...

But comparing Lonzo to guys listed 6’5-6’6, he’s taller
https://www.nba.com/lakers/sites/lakers/files/gettyimages-830256680.jpg Taller than Hart

And taller than Luke Kennard https://cdn.nba.net/nba-drupal-prod/2017-06/draftpic.jpg
Luke is 6’4.5 without shoes so he should be 6’6 himself , although I’ve noticed a lot of players look shorter in dress shoes I guess some have no heel


Great Team USA pic! Tatum looks taller than BI. In Summer League BI looked the same height as Lebron. Lebron recently told reporters he’s 6’9”. So I’m guessing that’s with shoes on. Kuzma looks like he can pass for 6’10”, which is great if we’re gonna play him at center or switch him off on centers. He defended Porzingis well this year and didn’t look too short next to him. In comparison, Porzingis makes KLove look like a midget.


It's extraordinarily difficult to accurately measure relative heights using a photo. Just do this test...stand up and slouch every so slightly...even an imperceptible slouch can result in you looking an inch or 2 shorter. Zo, for instance, doesn't look like he's stiffening his back straight nor are his legs. Throw in angles and whether or not one guy is standing a few inches in front of the other and you have all sorts of variables. In short, I can't really put too much stock into people eyeballing photos to determine relative heights.

Ok.


Force shots as well, but physically, it had a lot to do with his lack of length and small hands.

OK.

He might not have the "elite" athleticism of Giannis, but who does? But he definitely has elite length, his handles are actually tighter than Lonzo's right now, and his shot can only get better.

When he is aggressive he looks unstoppable, even the likes of Anthony Davis or Paul George have trouble with him. Am hoping he keeps that aggression even with Lebron around.

That video is fire. I’m the biggest Ingram supporter and I still forgot how good he was. Broussard said that people close to Lebron see Ingram as a Scottie Pippen. Soooo Top 50 greatest ever? I’ll take that!

All jokes aside, he looks noticeably bigger in that picture if you compare to what he looked like his rookie season, or even last year. Obviously it's been taken in a very favorable light and touched up, but his body is progressing nicely (and my body is ready )
