Stanley Johnson is a good signing, as far as defense is concerned... but he is a total liability on offense.

I can't believe how he can spend years in the NBA and not develop offensive skills... wasted opportunities


Put him with 4 scorers, Monk-Nunn-Bron-AD, Westbrook would still get minutes

Am I the only one who feels that, ideally, Johnson would be better off playing the 3 more often than the 4/5?

He's not tall enough to bother 4s and 5s, and we need a real 3 out there, not 2s like Monk or THT who masquerade as 3s.

Of course we should play Johnson sometimes at the 4, but should he also get a good chunk of minutes at the 3?

Yeah you're not the only one, Hopefully he can slide to the 3 once AD comes back, I cringed everytime he was guarding JJJ last game, it was barbecue chicken.

But...
Okay so that's the last 10 day they can sign him to before having to commit for the rest of the season.

Interesting. Seems like they might want to keep him for the long haul. Guessing he'll even see g-league time until his offense is more refined. Sad thing is he'll be mentioned in trade talks once he gets under contract. Young players just cannot win as long as Lakers are "contending".

No one on the Lakers is tall enough. Stanley is the 4th tallest Laker and that says more about why the team is bad than anything.

I complained about his small size in this thread on the day we signed him, and have yet to see a reason to change my mind.
