Why? As we have seen, they aren't playing the same position. Kuzma isn't a PF, he is too weak and our defense suffers. Randle is a PF/C, totally different position. Again, just LG imagination.


Some of Kuzma's minutes are inevitably going to come at the expense of Randle.

This dispute over who guards who in the 2019 playoffs is a bit far fetched. When you add two superstar players to an already good team you work those things out. Maybe you have to trade a guy to make it work, who knows. The point is the talent pool on the team is so great that you're able to make adjustments as necessary.

If you can own a Ferrari, you can maintain a Ferrari. You don't sweat the little details.


It's the dead part of the offseason, we need something semi interesting to discuss


Can't wait until Training Camp starts so we can begin discussing player attitudes by their body language in the layup line. Things are getting a bit thin around here.

I prefer Kuzma off the bench. It also seems like Randle is a good compliment to him with their being a small ball 4/5 combo. Gives you abnormally good playmaking in the front court while Randle is a monster rebounder. Add Ingram as an excellent 3 in that scenario if he can get to a point where he is less ISO crazy on offense and does a fair share of initiating. Maybe something like the Iggy role.

They might be trying to increase Randle/Nance trade value so any decisions from here on out may be towards that goal more than anything else.

I honestly love that he worked in two examples of JC not passing it to him in transition.

He could be 22ppg guy starting with Zo instead of coming off the bench with JC and JR. Luke will never do it though

I love Kuzma. He's been playing fantastic on both ends. One thing that I've noticed though is that his 3pt shooting has not been great this preseason except for 1 game. The good thing is he's got a nice array of moves which allows him to be effective even when his 3 ball isnt falling. His confidence is through the roof and I love it

Love this kid man. I like the fact that he seeks advise from anyone. I saw the clip of him talking to VC. NOt afraid to ask and eager to learn. Reminds me of Bean in that sense

One minutes it's"positions don't matter anymore"
Next minute it's "Kuzma is a sf"

"The league is going smaller"
"Let's put The 6'9 pf Kuzma at sF"

I don't understand are we going small or are we going big?

good god


You might as well post that response again because I'm suspicious of the same sentiment. I, too, like watching body language. I noted the same. I don't think it's dislike as much its being wary of a real threat to Julius' desire to start, dominate, and get that extension.

Kuzma's skills & consistency are drawing the kind of attention we were prepared to direct toward BI, and to an extent, a few others as well.


So you're telling me because one guy slapped hands hard than the other... HARDER than the other... there is a beef brewing.

Marcus Camby used only backhand high five his teammates-- he must have hated the world.

Kuzma is limited by who he can defend, even a physical 3 like Johnson gave him trouble.

Kuzma is like mana from heaven. I hope Luke realizes that and starts him instead of BI. This give BI more time to develop. Win win for everyone.

As VLF's greatest defender and greatest critic, this is a win/win for me. So, if you'd be so kind, please provide evidence of this.

Every Laker we have had starting has defensive limitations. How is pointing out a theoretical reasoning for the flip flopping going on around "small ball" vs play a center or playing PF's at SF? Should we not start Lonzo because hes a bad defender?

This is just a passing thought, certainly not one with great consideration, but what about Kuz at the two. He shoots, moves his feet well and he's long.

Ok have at it, tell me why not.
