Randle needs to be an all star this season or he won't be a Laker for vey long.
I see no reason to dump Clarkson's salary. He's young, relatively cheap, and actually contributes. Even if we try to make a super team, you still need a bench.
Clarkson has to go. He cant shoot or defend and he's overpaid. Some team would probably take a chance on the guy and if that's the case he has to go.
Was there ANYONE in the league last year that put up these numbers?
Without looking i'd say no.
Mostly because of the 12 boards.
Maybe KAT or AD did?
16-12-3 is very much in the cards for Randle. He's already among the best rebounders in the league and grabbed 10.2 rpg in his first season playing alongside a non-rebounding C in Roy HIbbert. Playing next to BroLo on a team that might play at the fastest pace in the league will help him a lot in that regard.
Offensively Lonzo will help him get more shots and if he's improved his shooting over the summer we could easily see a bump in both percentages and overall ppg. I'm sure his shot selection could improve as well.
He's already at 3.6 apg, which is 5th among PFs, but i could see him drop close to 5 dimes per game.
I think he'll be at about 16-11-4 this season, but i wouldn't be surprised if it was closer to 20-12-5.
