Nick Young and Wesley Johnson are both looking to have bounce-back seasons next year, and the way they’re working this summer, the more it looks like a “comeback” could be on the cards for the two new Lakers.

star is possible. I consider Batum a star. Not All Star but that Ariza, Horry , Odom type of player that a lot of people heard of but they aren't elite in the least bit.

Wes can certainly develop into an ariza or batum type but possibly better if he shows he can create for himself consistently.

I definitely agree with you.

We've all seen what Nick Young could possibly do and maybe he has a bit more to prove but Wes Johnson can be something.

He's got basically the ideal body and athleticism to be versatile and hopefully he develops his game this year.
