I still have a problem with Kuz at the 4. I know I'm old school but my 4 has to get me 8 -10 rebounds a game. The real questions comes in with this whole off season thing with PG and LeBron. Let's say we land PG. How in the hell does this Ingram, PG, Kuz thing actually work?? And I really don't want to hear that crap about PG or Ingram playing the 2. I personally feel we should go for a Superstar SHOOTING guard and a crazy rebounding center in the off season.  

 

 

 

Most PFs don't rebound well because they shoot the 3 so much more.  There are a few exceptions but it's kinda hard to do both.

 

What SuperStar SG are you thinking about?  And the best rebounding C is Cousins and I'm not sold on him without LeBron in tow.

The bench is good with Kuz and Randle And Clarkson.
Nance fits with the starters and its good for Ingram's progression.

KCP will hit his stride by game 25 trust me.

Kuz is streaky af also. What is he shooting from 3?

 

Damn Q, I usually don't agree with you but I do here...

 

Kuz, Randle and JC are quite the punch off the bench!

KCP will turn the corner.

Kuz is a stud, believe that.

Who ever found Kuz should be heading scouting. He should be a solid starter for us. Wouldn’t surprise me if he was an all star either. His shooting is legit. Call me crazy but he and Randle play pretty good together. Even have chemistry.

Oh definitely no Cuz without LBJ. That would be a disaster. Im not sold on Cuz at all. I'd groom Bryant first. The only way I'd take Cuz is on a 3 year deal with the third year as a team option

If we had a veteran coach and a veteran roster with at least 1 other established AllStar, maybe...but we are about as far from that as you can possibly get.  Cousins has proven to be an overbearing personality that turns toxic real quick without structure and another player he respects.  Would be a mistake to bring him to any young team with a young coach.

Safe to say this guys elevated himself to blue chip prospect. Size, athleticism and skill this guy has all star potential

I wouldn't be shocked if he's an all star by age 25

He's untoychable now in my book. I mean his production is one thing. But his actual on court performance and skill set is out of this world. He's the guy right now who EVERY team outside the top 3-5 is pissed they didn't draft

Look for Kuz to maybe have a 30 point effort this month especially with Nance out and more minutes avail


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!!!

Bogut will have more minutes with Nance out. I really hope Luke starts Kuz at the 4 and not Randle.

If you re-did the 2017 Draft today Kuzma would probably go #1.

I'm not sure. But he's definitely vaulted into a top 5 pick in a redraft discussion

Kyle Kuzma had a great game last night.

 

Brandon Ingram just isn't ready to be that guy yet. With 2 minutes left, that guy the defense knows is getting the ball, gets it, and scores anyways. 

 

I don't know if Kuzma is that guy, but he needs to go for it anyways. Brook Lopez was never that guy on the nets, not even during his peak years. But he's not that old, he can shoot and post, we need him to be that guy this season. Kuzma needs to be that guy too.

I'd say every so often, and it's not every year, there's a guy who just totally flips the draft on its head. Isaiah Thomas comes to mind, Gilbert arenas, manu ginobili, jokic is a recent example

I do believe kuzma is that guy. He's the guy that everyone but one team misses on and everyone is confused how they missed him.

Kuzma has legitimate 20+ppg potential. And even at just that he's a steal. But then you factor in the fact that this guy has skills. He handles the ball, he can pass, he can drive in. He moves the ball. He plays SMART. He's got a polished offensive game. He's big at 6-9 and athletic. He gives effort defensively and while he's not a stopper he plays more than adequate on that end

Obviously the lakers scouted the hell outta him. They obviously saw something pretty much no one else did because look. He's 6-9. I can't think of a team in the entire league that couldn't use him. He makes sense on every single roster.

And because he makes sense on every single roster that means that the lakers just saw something behind the curtain that no one else did. On the surface he looked one way to every team and another to the lakers

Because this isn't some undersized guard, or some unknown foreign player

This is a legitimate 6-9 good nba athlete with crazy skills
