I really dont see any of these College brats being answers to our problems. THere are 0 Kobes & LBJs in upcoming drafts.
Not sure where "brats" came from, but we don't absolutely need to pick a Kobe/LBJ level player this year. They were called generational players for a reason. In addition, no player is at his peak when he is drafted. Lebron, Kobe, Durant, etc. all took a few years to develop into what they are now, and it will be the same with the players in this draft. Whatever the case may be, having an All-Star/superstar to build with doesn't hurt. It certainly improves our chances of doing well in free agency in upcoming years, and it will be nice to have a glimpse of the future shape of the Laker team (whomever we draft).
