Here's a playlist for the interviews:

Just watched the videos (ok, I was late). Personally, I felt that the two worst interviews were Clarkson and TRob. Clarkson was just all over the place--he was unable to focus on the task at hand. At the start, he was unsuccessfully trying to get a donut from somebody when he was supposed to be answering questions from the reporters.

TRob talked about how Magic and Pelinka told him that he needed to raise his BB IQ. There is nothing in that interview that makes me believe that he can do it. I think there is a good chance that TRob joins Young and MWP as players who will not return next year. With 10 players under contract (Black, Zubac, Mozgov, Deng, Randall, Nance, BI, Brewer, Clarkson and Russell), two draft picks and a potential FA signing, I kind of doubt that the Lakers keep TRob. I have no inside knowledge; I am guessing.

Ennis's interview was excellent. I hope that the Lakers re-sign him.

After his career in basketball is over, Nance will have a long career as TV analyst and/or basketball coach.

^ Clarkson has always been terrible at interviews.

But I really liked Robinson's interview. I agree I'm skeptical he'll ever get his understanding of the game high enough, but I really liked what he said. Focusing on his bball IQ, wanting to be a star in his role as an energy, etc. I really like that kind of mentality.

I got the impression that we are building around Ingram and the other guys have to improve their weaknesses if they want to stay long term.

The message for most guys was consistency, conditioning and things like that while they want Ingram to workout with Kobe.

I agree with Ingram stuff. They want to build around him. Everybody kept asking him/about him

Nobody asked DLO if he is going to be working with Kobe

Maybe because Russell played with Kobe for a season and Ingram didn't?

So if you're not working out with Kobe you're on the trade block? I mean is Zub meeting up with Kobe too?

-JC traded for $0/Deng stretched = 57.6m in 2018 cap space (2 stars get 28.8m each)
-Same as above and Jules renounced/traded for $0 = 69.9m in 2018 cap space (2 stars get full max)

You got that impression because that's the impression you expected or wanted to get.

If the FO is looking to be players in free agency then I doubt they are looking at building around any young player.

In this case I would be talking about Zubac, but I guses you have another player in higher regard
