Former Arizona standout thrives in new role with hometown Lakers
Quote:
“People forget that he was a top-10 pick in our league and he’s only 25 years old,” LeBron James said of Johnson in a January postgame news conference.
“He’s a guy that’s hungry and a guy that wants to go out and prove he belongs in the NBA.”

If he works obsessively on his 3 this summer and shoots ~35% for us next year that will be an absolute game-changer.

Lakers' offseason Day 31. Stanley Johnson is seemingly following in Alex Caruso’s footsteps as he too is training with shooting coach Jordan Lawley this offseason to improve his shooting. That'a all folks!

Stanley with a catch and shoot jumpshot = NBA rotation player on a good team.

Yes.
Unfortunately one can say that (or similar) about a myriad of borderline players that fill NBA benches and/or exit the NBA, I hope it happens but won't count on it.

I hope Wenyen Gabriel and Austin Reaves do something similar.

Every player in the NBA has been an All-Star from where they came from.

All the great NBA players are always dedicated and "All In" on improving and adding to their game.

Stephen Curry is ALWAYS working on his game. On the other side, WestBrick (among many others) are depending on past glory with the hope that their declining skills will keep them in the league while feeling no need to always being better.

Gabriel, Reeves and Johnson appear to to be very hungry and dedicated to dramatically improve their game to take full advantage of the opportunities given to them. They have seen the success of players such as Caruso to Rick Van Vleet and others that needed opportunities to show what they can do.

Gabriel to Reeves and Johnson working their butts off is greater than Kyrie (who missed over half of the games and wan't into playing the game because he was given uber amount of talent while not feeling the urgency to improve his game.

Passion for The Game and High Basketball IQ means the following:
* Play hard on every second they are on the court
* Don't miss defensive assignments
* Always moving
* Blocking out
* Wins the majority of the 50/50 balls
* No careless mistakes

Picking up the team option on Stanley was a no brainer. Glad that this got taken care of. I would bring back Gabriel too.
