Quote:
LeBron James to @LakersReporter on Alex Caruso:

“He gives us everything. He gives us a steady ballhandler, he gives us a defensive presence, he gives us basketball IQ and toughness. And we need everything from that.”


Who isn’t a fan of the greatest player to play the game

Changed the defensive intensity of the game with that inbound steal. Everyone got energized by that.

AC's defense and hustle has finally earned him some respect. He had another good effort tonight. Really happy for this kid, he has come a long way.

He needs to play more and Rondo needs to play less.

You need a guy like Air Caruso on a Championship team

LeBron had Delle on the Cavs

LeBron had Battier on the Heat

He just needs to keep working on his 3 pt shot and handles. Winning basketball player.

As has been mentioned, I think a closing backcourt of Bradley and Caruso will be key for this team. Their ability to play perimeter defense is what will allow us to stay with teams like the clippers and rockets.

It’s obvious we traded away all our first rounders so we can free up playing time for Caruso.

Carusin' for a bruisin', I'm talkin' no crap
Pipe bomb in my trunk, got a nine in my lap
I'm layin' for a sprayin', tonight there's no playin'
The posse's most strapped, tonight the crew's weighin'…

Caruso is not only getting minutes, he’s playing in minutes that count. He’s definitely in the core rotation going forward.

Credit Vogel for recognizing and playing Caruso at the end of games. 99.9 percent of coaches wouldn’t have the stones with all the accomplished vets on the teams. It’s great to watch a no name G-Leaguer survive the trades then contribute when it matters most. Credit to Rob for hiding Caruso during all the trades as well.

I think AC deserves an LFR defensive breakdown video. Can't find any youtube videos highlighting his defense. AC's defense is underrated.
