What if he has a good rookie season?

One if those seasons that shooters occasionally have. Maybe 13 on 48% and 42% from 3.

I'm obviously optimistic but I highly doubt it. Still

Sometimes you get lucky, and with the piss poor luck last season, and this being the one of the most magical franchises in sports history, I wouldn't be surprised if we traded ourselves into a contender by next season's playoffs.


We have all expirings including Pau's FAT contract.


Plus with teams on the TANK, this season, there will be a LOT of winning type VETS available later this season.

I hope Kelly or SOMEONE steps up to justify the Blake/Meeks trade with probably Sacre as well.
Perhaps a Landry trade or Taj Gibson or Larry Sanders, etc

Kelly will be lucky to average 1.3 points a game

Having two power forwards behind Hill is a good idea


Having two centers behind Pau is a good idea

Having two shooting guards behind Kobe is a good idea

I like how they are building their depth.


So the way I see it unless Xavier shocks everyone he could be odd man out.
This shall be our lineup most likely


Nash / Blake / Farmar
Kobe / Young / Meeks
Johnson / Landry / Henry or Harris
Hill / Williams / Kelly
Gasol / Kaman / Sacre



It's gonna come down to Elias Harris vs Xavier Henry to see who makes the final cut imo.

NOW IF they are really planning to start Nick Young with Kobe the lineups look like this

Nash
Kobe
Young
Hill
Gasol

Blake / Farmar
Meeks / Henry
Johnson / Landry
Williams / Kelly
Kaman  / Sacre

Not bad but I'd prefer Young in that bench lineup with that bench lineup which is why I'd rather Johnson start cause Nick's scoring could boost the bench.

I mean unless D'antoni is planning on keeping Young IN while Kobe goes to the bench and just switching him to the 2 while bringing Johnson in at the 3, but then that freezes Landry out.   So our lineup is probably gonna be changing a lot this year depending.

I DO expect of all our bench players for Young to average probably 26-30 minutes a game though.

But there will be some nights we'll need him off the bench and maybe a few matchups we could get away with starting him with

I think our lineups will be determined by 3PT%

Why not, we prefer more 3 pointers than a great defense, if we can outscore our rivals we will be champions

I am not included in that "we". I'm cool. I prefer defense, since defense wins games.

Our lineup will be determined by spacing. Like every team.

Meeks could start at the "3".
