Even-at-the-end-of-the-bench-Kent-Bazemo

 

Alright so what is known about him?  Offensively he's nothing special, but defense is what he's known for. 

He was the two time CAA Defensive player of the year so defense is what he's known for.

If you're looking for an offensive explosion look elsewhere because he is nothing and I mean NOTHING special.  If you're looking for someone you want to give the task of locking up someone at the 1 he may be your guy.   If you need someone doing the Kid and Play with Sacre while cheering on the bench he's DEFINITELY your guy.    He has a mean streak and is freaking annoying if you're playing against him but you enjoy if he's on your team.  
Always hustles, always gives it his all, is a great teammate and locker room guy and has matured since his younger mistakes.  Will stay on 200% it if he plays for 48 minutes or for 10. 


Guess I'll give you a highlight to be excited about.. here you go. 

 



D-Fense and a 6'11 wingspan. 

 

Lakers are also high on him, expect him to contribute now and in the future.

Do you actually think he's someone we'll keep on board for the future? I really don't know anything about him except from 2k lol, but it seems unlikely for us to keep him out of all the young talent/potential we currently have.

And here's another for the heck of it 

 

 

Enjoy  :)

I imagine that they hope he's their next "Shannon".

Well from what I read and what Ramona said the Lakers are very high on him and think he can be a piece for the future as well as the present so I guess they are looking at keeping him. 

He's a very athletic wing defender so I think they "may" hold on to him. 

Depends what he's able to do.  D'antoni for all his faults is very good at maximizing wing players for what they can do, so if he is ever going to find success it's gonna be here or nowhere at all so we shall see.  Defensively I think he'll be fine.

Well after losing Blake they did need a guy to bring some passion and "dog" to the fight so to speak. Bazemore fits the description.. problem is he isn't much of a scorer.  But in terms of staying engaged defensively and having a dog mentality he has it in spades.  So much so I hated the guy for his swag whenever he did something good against us -_-  Something I'm sure I'll enjoy if he winds up doing it for us.

A decent pick up and again someone who is a low risk high rewards type player. He is also an expiring contract. His strength is defence which is something we could do with in our backcourt. He has some good athleticism and nice length. If he can improve his offensive game he could be a potential keeper for the future. Hope he takes his chances when he gets them and does well.

If the Lakers do nothing more this trade deadline it means they actually intend to use both Bazemore and Brooks and weren't just "salary' dumping.   That's interesting.

I've said this before and was met with much resentment. Everyone on the current roster not named Kobe Bryant wont be there in 2 seasons. And the FO will secretly be counting the days till Kobes last game.

 

Another thing I expect is younger fans start saying things like "trade KB for draft picks, amnesty KB, hes old, he cant play anymore, we gotta do whats best for the franchise, Hes injured only so we cant trade him, hes a defensive liability, etc".

 

Ya know the same thing people say about Pau now is the same ugly beast that will appear for who imho is the GOAT. Because thats the nature of the beast.

Definitely good insurance if Young tries to get expensive.

or Meeks as well.  Meeks I think is most likely to get expensive considering the year he's having.

You know watching this block again


I realize something.... he jumped CLEAN over Demarre Carroll's head.  That's some athleticism for you. Good to see honestly. If he gets his offense together he make be sticking around for a bit as the Lakers do have an option on him after this season.  THAT is athleticism..

however...

 

does it trump this?
