If he can improve defense, watch out

I think hes got good instincts on the defensive end... its just his reaction time needs to be sped up against pro competition. What do they say... cant teach length?

Im more concerned with his boxing out and rebounding. If he can get the outlet pass out quickly, and crash the offensive boards, Big Mamba may have a key fit here to mitigate the loss of on court value from LNJ. Having the three stroke in his back pocket is just another weapon for his team mates to take advantage of.

He needs to develop his stamina as well. Were going to run all game long. He needs to keep up and be be high energy when his number is called. Most of all, be aggressive.

Great energy and shooting ability, but Kuzma needs a solid rim protector and rebounder next to him.

intoxicating 3-pt shooter. exquisite, absolutely delightful, downright palatable, delicate, a real rosebud, entrancing, riveting, hypnotizing, the brookest of lopezes, the stretchest of fives

I think he meant Kobe Bryant. I wish we could see more of Thomas.

I like TB but this rubs me as more of the 'JC has 6MOY, DPOY potential, Nance is our secret weapon' talk we heard from Magic early on.

Rob's Quote is much better than Mitch K's quote...

"Ya Know" "Ya Know" "Ya Know" "Ya Know"

I was ready to call up the Lakers front office to tell them to ask Mitch.. please stop saying "Ya Know"

Big plans are nice, and then there's playing big. That's what it takes to fulfill those hopes.

And to think, all it's gonna take is the Lakers drafting Brandon McCoy and him having a better summer league than Thomas Bryant for all of you praising him to call him a scrub and start wanting to trade him.

All it will take is Big Mamba lock down the paint with JR and Hitman on the boards - watching the big man run the floor fake a three and finish strong at the rack for the all the doubters to recognize the raw talent. This big can run, shoot, block and finish with aggression.

He needs more mins in actual games after AS break if they want to develop him. Now that LNJ is gone he should be getting it.

Says the guy who constantly preaches patience but then every time we turn around you're posting some off the wall idea about "Would you trade Brandon Ingram for pick X in the upcoming draft? Here's my logic as to why". Stay black pot.
