More KCPrison


I really like the fact that he’s stepped his game up since struggling early in the preseason, I don’t understand why we can’t admit that’s he a good 3-D player.
because laker fans like to take sides. and now they are as usual siding with the new guy. Fortnite hart. now i will say as of this very min. yes fortnite hart is the better player. but kcp is a legit 3 and D guy.

here's going to be the dilemna, which one of them is going to shine off the bench? because what happens is this. If hart can play well as a starter and as a bench player but kcp can only thrive when in with the starters. KCP will be the starter and josh will be the Ginobili, Lamar Odom of the team off the bench. and i bet you he will be mad about it. But Hart will finish all games and kcp wont, which will upset kcp and may make him go elsewhere the following season. But if no one gets their egos hurt and just want to win. having these two caliber players on the same team can be great. KCP can start in the nba so him off the bench is pretty much better than any SG coming off the pine since he not only can score, is athletic, can shoot, but he also plays defense. usually off the pine sg's that are good are scorers and nothing else.

and just in case either of them get hurt. you wont miss them nearly as much when the other one is taking their mins. thats a really nice problem to have.

that makes for a really deap SG spot. especially since we dont have a superstar at the spot. those two together = Paul George. but now with some depth and you dont have to burn your starters out.


We should be happy we have Hart and KCP, if both of them play good just imagine how good this team can be, because both posses different skillsets.

Why Josh Hart May Be LeBron’s Most Valuable Teammate

Mostly because he’s a smaller version of the Lakers’ superstar.

Quote:
In case you hadn’t noticed, the Los Angeles Lakers have a cerebral, multi-talented player who is strong as an ox and competes like a runaway train. But no: We’re not talking about the NBA’s best player, LeBron James. Josh Hart is something of a makeshift James clone, and he could very quietly end up being the club’s second-most-important player because of the unusual, Swiss Army knife role he plays.

Comparing Hart to LeBron is terrible analysis, even if you stick only to transition and try to consider Hart as a "poor man's" LeBron.

Josh Hart wanted to practice today but his hamstring was tight and the Lakers played it safe. Hart will be questionable, Luke says.

What are they talking about Hart not being a fan favorite? Plenty of fans love the Hitman.

My group of friends like him more than Kuz... it’s the media that doesn’t like him.

His 3 ball has been off all preseason. It might be him trying to adjust because of all the strength training him and Kuz have been doing this offseason

Too bad Luke is too dumb to start him.

People talking about Ball and Ingram, when its Hart who’s been our most consistent young player.

Ready to trade Ball, Kuzma, Ingram for a real star.

Keep Hart.

Needs to start in place of KCP or be 6th man. Should be getting 30 mins per game however possible. Good things always happen with him on the court. Just plays the right style and with a good rhythm.

I’d rather take a couple of stupid fouls along with great shooting, efficiency and two way playing then whatever the hell KCP does.

27 and 27 for Hart and KCP. That's not acceptable. Give Hart 7 more minutes, give KCP 7 less.

That SL MVP ain't no fluke, yo. He's still playing at a high level against top competition. I wanted him to start from the very beginning but I don't know what our FO and Luke is thinking. He is our future. KCP is a possibly a one-year rental. Why not develope Hart to be our permanent starting two-guard? He definitely has star potential. A great draft pick in a sea of many bad picks.

He should be the starter, KCP might need to come off the bench until his game gets back to its normal self.

Great game. Would be interesting to see what he could do with starter minutes through out the year.
