Lebron was coming here even if team won 10 games last season


You say that even though LeBron already hinted that he loved the young players during the season last year and this summer when he was interviewed by Rachel Nichols, the team could have won 40+ had the young players like BI and Ball stayed healthy, your post makes no sense.

There was a poster here alleging Kobe is trying to stay relevant all due to LeBron coming to LA. Just throwing a jab at that poster.

I hope Kobe will help our current players, not the future one.

Fortunately, Kobe still has the 2000s mentality.
Hopefully Tatum starts having the Mamba mentality. And be butts heads with Kyrie who also has the Mamba mentality which led him to leave LeBron.

Oh snap. Don't tell me this is Kobe sabotaging the Celtics.

I won't. I think Tatum will be good, but I doubt he'll become so good that I’d regret the Lakers choosing Lonzo. Lonzo is a unique player that impacts the game and his team in a way that's also highly unique. I hope he spends his entire career with the Lakers.

come on man, we're still posting ppg stats in 2018?

TS%
Ingram: 47.4%
Kuzma: 54.9%
Tatum: 58.6%

Block/Steal%
Ingram: 1.1/1.3
Kuzma:1.0/1.1
Tatum: 1.7/2.0

Tatum was better.

I did, still do. It is what it is however. Lonzo can play though so lets just hope its the slightest of regrets in the long run vs a chasm of it.

This.
Lonzo can play and it's likely he'll be a better player this season. But those shooting percentages (esp. FT %) have to improve dramatically. As it stands, I have zero doubt Tatum is going to be a star in this league...and soon. He's already proven something in the postseason and I sure don't envision him regressing.

Tatum was better.


While I agree on Tatum being better, their roles were completely different, which I strongly believe led to Tatum's efficiencies and Ingram's inefficiencies.

Boston isn't exactly making Tatum run an offense.

Ingram OTOH, hit 40% of his open 3-point shots.

Kuz working out with Kobe

Quote:
Rest easy, everyone. Kuz has been in the gym with the Mamba this summer.


https://twitter.com/lakerssbn/status/1033073240476921857?s=21

Quote:
How did Kuzma look during the workout, according to Bryant?

“Dude, he looks great, man. He’s got good rhythm, he has the ability do disassociate movements, which gives him a fluidity when he plays. But he can shoot the ball, he’s worked on his midrange game a lot, post up game looks strong so I’m looking forward to him having a good year.”

Disassociate movements is definitely Kuz. He reacts to his opponents defense. Post moves, euro steps, etc. Seems to always have a counter and rarely gets blocked.

See this is why I'm so high on Kuzma, I don't think we should put a ceiling on him he works hard and he wants to be great.Kuzma doesn't let the defense set he's makes quick decisions and has so many ways to get you on offense .
