Most definitely, he will ensure we stay competing for the next 4-5 years to come.

 

Has ties with Wesley Johnson; hopefully he can swing him this way.

Middleton and Drummond alongside Russell, Ingram, and Randle would be a playoff team buddy...



No they wouldn't. Ingram is a very bad player at this point.
And the other kids aren't playing great

Wow. BBQ going negative on our guys.

When did you see the light?

 

BTW  i think you can make a case for leaving Ingram OFF the all rookie team


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!!!

He has potential but he isn't going to outplay any experienced wing player and most young players have a more ready body.

When he is in year 5, all the kids will be good

I feel Ingram may be the kind of player that makes significant leaps season to season.

 

Guess we'll see next season if that happens.

 

Having said that, I'm not against moving young guys for stars, but i'm not against watching them develop...as long as we're not trying to lose games any longer.

 

This is awful to watch and doesn't make sense to after only 1 quarter of a game.

Wow, realism from BBIQ?!

 

And no,that's not a playoff team.  Russell doesn't care enough and everyone else isn't solid in any way, shape or form.

 

It's more than Mozgov and Deng that constitute the "mess" with the Lakers.

 

I'm not against development with players that look like they want to develop.  But these young Lakers - I see no fire, no desire to improve, no anything that makes me think any of these guys are the core that will take this team anywhere but into the lottery year after year.

I see some Wesley Johnson in Ingram; probably his highest ceiling. 


I like to dip my feet in toilet water & smell them.

Oh, you know how much Russell cares? Oh please tell me more about players psychology. For a guy that doesn't care he sure is reported as being in the gym quite a bit

Maybe he enjoys doing things he doesn't care about. Who knows

According to Reggie, Ingram needs to make 1500 3's everyday during the off season

Not a bad thing; nor is it a slight on Ingram. Wesley, ever since his stint with the Los Angeles Clippers, has been a tremendous contributor to their success.

Basically; it just comes down to common sense. Something everybody is capable of attaining. 

 

You don't have to be so hard on yourself; you should chin up.

He just said Rob has a list of the free agents for the next 5 years. My feeble mind is only on next off season. Lol
