I trust what you are saying. If you were really trying to scam anybody you would not have come up with the solution on how the mistake between the two of us was made.


Thanks man

I am so confused. Who photoshopped a Caruso photo? Are they all photoshopped? If so, why the hell are the Lakers releasing photoshopped photos beefing up the muscles of their players? Am I naive and all these sports photos are shopped? WTF!?

Naw brother, originally, normal pictures of Alex Caruso were put up by the Lakers. Then, people Photoshopped his muscles to make em look beefier and then those pics started to surface the internet.

It's crazy that some people thought the bodybuilder-like photoshops were real.

Skeptical but hopeful. He played better at the end of last season than he did on South Bay.

I don't agree with the "Rajon Rondo is the likely favorite to start" part.

Caruso will be our 3rd best player next year. He is the only one not name LeBron with a "complete" game. I under a lot of stress because of not having a player with these abilities but thats only because i didn't watch Caruso's 25 games. This is what i see....

Ball handler on pick
- ability to penetrate and FINISH
- ability to shoot
- ability to see the floor
- ability to create own shot (not necessarily iso)

Offball
- ability to spot up
- ability to cut
- ability to set picks (steve nash)
- transition

Defense: He is 6"5... we could literally switch everything and not lose size. Anyways im really excited about caruso. He has a very fluid game.. kinda like what we want from Zo but never got. He is like a broke man manu but just what we needed!


I would love to see how see does with this line up

PG.Caruso
SG.Daniels
SF.Green
PF.Kuzma
C.Davis

High pick and roll all game and let these shooters go to work

Coach sees it 👀👀👀

If Lebron really feels this way, it’s a great sign.

Caruso/Bradley rotation at the 1 is best for this team.

I’m thinking more like 8/3/4 off the bench while shooting upper 30%s from deep, low turnovers, and tough d. Anything else is absolute cherry on top.

I like seeing this, from both LeBron and Coach Vogel.

The assists were at 3.x for me, and I just rounded up.
For scoring, I was going back and forth from about 10-12 range and I just went with the higher number I think he can hit near the 40% mark on 3s if he's taking spot up open 3s generated by Lebron and AD.

Either way, I'm just glad you're having tapered expectations. The "g.o.a.t." hyperbole on Alex was driving me nuts.

10/5/3 is what I’ve called the MLE level player. Very good for a 4-5th option starter or first guard/forward off the bench. Kind of the stats we expected from Fisher, Horry, Luke players back in the day earning $5 million or so a year.

If Caruso can hit those kind of numbers he will be the kind of player we hoped Steve Blake (Black) or Devean George could have been back in the day. Caruso could end up being that bargain player that guys like Kuzma and Ingram were. And maybe with a little more fundamentals and a little more bark and bite of the dog than those players have sometimes shown.

I'd think he's better than Bradley in that respect. Rondo can't be the only option

We have LeBron too!

But I agree, we are in trouble if we have to rely on Rondo for much of anything.

Caruso and Bradley should be ahead of Rondo in the rotation. Hope they get a chance first and then if it is not working out then consider Rondo starting.

I'm hopeful about Caruso, but I think many people are getting ahead of themselves and maybe even overrating him.

Yeah, he looked good late last season, but it was a small sample space. The league will adjust to him this season, and I want to see if he's really that good (or even better hopefully).

Caruso isn't ready to start at all. Bradley, acoording to teammates and coaches, has looked great in camp, so Caruso would have to beat him out, as well as Rondo and his 8 assists a game plus his championship experience.

I guess there's a chance Caruso is ready to start late in the season or next year. He's young, so I really hope he's as good as he looked late last season because then he'd be like a first-round draft pick without actually using a first-round draft pick.
