Lopez does make sense don't you think? I don't know if he demands a ton of money but for the right price he seems to be a good fit.

Sure, he'd be a fine choice as a C. Might not break the bank either, considering the market.

 

But if the Lakers believe Lopez is a good fit to this team i think Boogie should be an ever better fit, because he's better than Lopez in literally ever aspect of the game.

I dig Lopez. He isn't a head case like Cuzz. Cuzz is a better player though

Honestly, in a best-case scenario who do you see as our C going forward?

 

 

I'm not opposed to Cousins if we land LeBron.

 

Without LeBron, Cousins will dominate the offense and necessitate changing pretty much every piece.  Not to mention bringing in Cousins means we should not have Randle anywhere NEAR this roster.

 

 

Plus Luke isn't the most authoritative guy nor does he have a lot of cred.  Pretty worst case scenario if Cousins is our only haul.

 

 

If I had a choice of anyone in the league, Marc Gasol would be right up there.  I know it's not possible but that's the type of C that could really help us.

Ingram needs a lot of work. He needs to chill on trying to be the main scorer. Just gotta focus on defense and catch & shoot opportunities.

Wow, that pass though


Praying for  1. Some Cohesion (Ill fitting parts with young bucks, new guys, and those playing for next contracts may muck things up all season) 2. Better Coaching, No More Tanking (Last season was more of the latter but not sure how much of the former we can count on. Walton with something to prove this season as much as any Laker player) 3. Rookie Watch (Hoping Lonzo outshines his daddy (ROTY??), and Kuzma finds minutes and makes a push for all rook 2nd team)

READY FOR SEASON!!!

That's the BI i want to see. Rebound, push the ball, see what's happening with the defence react. I hate when he forces isoball. And it also reduces his productivity. Let the game come to him and we are good to go.

 

But this off-season i am concerned about his shooting for the first time. He used to miss but did not hesitated. But now he skips wide open shots and tries to post from almost 3. It's the worst and ineffective way to use your post-up moves. I don't care how much he misses, he has to shoot the ball the second he is open.

BI simply needs to let the game come to him... having Lopez on the court will help Ingram out the most.

I'm looking forward to seeing Kuzma and Ingram on the floor together.  I think that if Ingram played more "free" like Kuzma, his natural talents would blossom.

 

 

I want to see Ingram coming off screens more than playing Point Forward on the ball.  Set screens, pick & pop, run the floor, pass the ball up ahead.  He will be fine if he just let's go of the desire to be "Tha Man".

Yes sir, I think we have something special in BI, Kuz and Ball... just wait until they truly realize it and play up to it.

 

Agreed, BI needs to let go of the premature-juvenile desire and expectations to be "The Man" once he does the game will come to him.

Plus he has a guy on the team that is the archetypical forward for this offense.  If we have both BI and KK out there, teams will have a hard time stopping them both when they can do a lot of the same things.

 

 

IMHO, BI and KK should have a similar impact on each others game to Giannis and Jabari Parker.  If we can get these guys to play off each other in that way, very good things can happen for this young team and that's something I think LeBron would be excited about.

At this pace I think ingram will be like trevor ariza, a good role player in a good team.. ( lets hope im wrong and lets hope he even gets to the level of ariza in terms of shooting) guys remember when he first went to houston and tried for him to be the primary scorer and it didnt work but when he became the supporting player he became good and effective. I think ingram is going to be good as a supporting cast and not the primary player for the team

It's way too early to jump there. But he needs to be better. He gets good looks. I'd say about 8 of his shots from the top of my head were good looks he either was given or got himself. But he doesn't connect.

I think Ingram has potential. I think one thing to remember is players all develop differently. Some burst out of the gate some taken time. Giannis who I'm sure people will agree is a much more talented player than Ingram took until about season 3 to really have an impact. And that's an elite player in the league. Maybe the 4th best wing.

Every player is different. Ingram may never amount to anything. Or he may amount to a lot. I think the frustrating part that some people see is that he has a skills set. Can dribble, pass and has solid athleticism with outstanding length. So people get frustrated that it's not coming together. But he's still what 20?

I'm not ready to bury him just yet. It's en vogue to do so Right now but I see he has gifts that can translate if he can improve in other areas

I agree. BI is still young but still has as high upside as any.

I would say he forces a few of those shots. Remove those and his point-per-shot suddently doesnt look quite as bad.

I've seen enough of Ingram to say that I don't see an allstar player much else a superstar. He'll be another Wesley Johnson (lowest) or Ariza (highest). I haven't even seen flashes of his potential. Would be really surprise if he turns it around. Just turning down my expectations of him.

He's playing like [expletive] but he's still so freaking young. I know people hate hearing that, but it's just true. 

 

Someone needs to tell Ingram to move the [expletive]ing ball. We're a lot better when he is facilitating and passing. 

 

 

I don't mind him missing shots when they're good looks because I believe those will fall one day, but I hate when he misses the bad looks because most of the time it's so obvious he just needs to get rid of it.
