Get killed on the boards
Get killed In the paint
Higher injury probability guarding bigger players

Don't like it

Short stretches where momentum or match ups dictate then sure

I like it. Speed, shooting, finishing, and the best defender on the team plays.

Looks inexperienced, fast, vulnerable on the boards, and without an NBA proven three point threat. Some of that could change over time.

Nance wouldn't last long at starting center, we lose him to injuries off the bench.

Yeah you swap out ,Nance with Lopez and that is a potentially dangerous offensive unit.

Definitely not a starting line-up, but that's a small-ball line-up I want to see at some point. Would really like to see Nance develop the ability to anchor at the 5.

I think we all agree on Ball/KCP/Ingram.

Kuzma - I'd LOVE to see him get PT at the 4 IF he can fly like he did in Summer League against NBA vets.

But... Kuzma's about my 4th choice as the starting 4, behind Randle, Nance, and even Luol Deng. Needs experience and some muscle to pull off a starting gig. I'd rather he hone his skills by running the pants off of second units and let's see where he goes from there.

Starting Center. We've got Brook Lopez this year. Brook. Lopez. Not the short end of the gene pool brother Robin. Nope. Brook. Effing. Lopez. Need a big backup - Zubac. Need a situational small ball 8 minutes of speedy hell lineup then yes to Nance.

Looks like we can switch at any position.
Which isn't necessarily a good thing.

Nance is not a better rebounder than Brook? Then there's Lonzo, who I think could average around 7 (especially in a lineup like that).

I think Luke could smoke crack before the games and still have the rationality to never trot that lineup out there as starters with Lopez and Randle healthy.

PG Lonzo Ball
SG Kentavious Caldwell-Pope
SF Brandon Ingram
PF Julius Randle
C Brook Lopez
6M Jordan Clarkson

Will be the starting five and sixth man.

Does this team have what it takes to break the 30 win threshold that has evaded the Lakers since 2012? Good luck with that.

The starting line up is probably

C - Lopez
PF - Randle
SF - Ingram
SG - KCP
PG - Ball

The one wildcard is Deng who could start at either forward spot

I can think at least 2 players for both forward spots that are more deserving than Deng to start.

I'd replace Randle with Kuzma.

Like a death line up, Lakers version? Not sure if Nance is better than Lopez at either ends or even stretching/PnP. Kuzma you can argue looks better stretching than Randle but nobody knows how he'll do D-ing up NBA starters. Not seeing this
