Dominated. Now he's untouchable too. Spurs keep waiting, they'll need to pay us to take Kawhi's quad and ossified bones.

He would be so awesome if he was a little bit faster. He thrived against lesser and slower competition but against NBA players, he looked flustered. If he could improve on his footwork and quickness, he might be a decent center in a few more years.

Get this kid on that LeBron HGH diet plan and he could be our new starting center.

Lebron will provide the details to the best HGH clinic. They are set.

Expect Ingram to "magically" bulk up too.

Does anyone have his roll man data from last season? I can only find it from 2016-2017.

There aren't very many people out there who root for Zubac more than me.
But he's a bad fit with Randle. And Randle is the better player.
So Zu might have to go. I still think he can be a Nurkic-like player if he finds the right fit.


This aged super well.

Still believe he could be the next Nurkic.

Zubac Stars for Croatia in Back-to-Back Wins at World Cup Qualifiers

Quote:
The third-year Lakers center came through for his national team, as he threw down dunk after dunk to help guide Croatia to wins over Italy and Romania.

I thought he looked painfully bad last year, but I'll be rooting for him. Sophomore slumps happen to the best of them, so I have faith he could be serviceable.

Still seems a little too raw to be starting alongside LeBron James - especially come playoff time, so I fully expect us to bring Brook back.


Since, as it stands, part of the current plan is going to roll over to 2019, it makes sense on some level to give Zubac his do-or-die look. If he falters, his contract is up at the end of the season and they have the space to fill the position with a free agent. If he gets the job done, you re-sign him and focus your pursuits on filling other positions. With this in mind, ought to at least be given the opportunity to compete for the starting position.

Zu did average 11/5 as a starter iin 20 MPG in like 11 games if i remember correctly. The kid still has potential.

Random, but I happen to like the collection of nicknames the Lakers have drafted the last few years.

I think that Zu, Zo, Kuz, and Mo go very well together in a game write-up.

Anybody else out there really excited to see how Zu plays this year? Seeing his stronger physique and watching clips from the Croatian team are bringing back memories of Zu being the next Marc Gasol. Yes, Iíd love to sign BroLo, but I'd also like to see Zu get major minutes. I think he can really produce and be part of our young core going forward.

I can't get excited while I'm worrying if any players under 30 are even going to still be on this team from one week to the next.

Barring an unexpected Kawhi trade or Deng salary dump, Zu sure has pulled a rabbit out of the hat with this second life as a Laker. Hope he's more ready for it then he was for the last season...

I really hope he turns it around but I don't really take much from Euro competition.

Glad he's playing well though. That's what he should be doing against those guys.

Zu came into the NBA with a lot of skill and touch for a big but had a lot of fat and was slower due to that. 2nd season he lost a lot of weight but also lost his muscle mass. He got bullied and couldnít hold his own in the post. Still lacked explosiveness. This upcoming season we will see the culmination of two offseasons of Work that has gotten us this more explosive, leaner and stronger version of Zu. Iím excited for him and I think the FO believes in him too as they didnít re-sign Brook.

He is still just 21 yrs old, so don't close the book on him just yet.

It all depends how much he builds up his body. The skill is there but right now the athletic skill is not.
