Hot take - Lopez is an All Star this season (primarily because our fan base will vote him in).

 

Maybe it's not such a hot take.....

Trolls

and weirdos in this thread.

 

Look what you did Danish


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!!!

Lol. Kuzma could get killed on the boards and in the paint as rookie 4. Or simply schooled as a rookie SF.
So how doesn't that make sense?

Because Ball is in the same situation, will play more minutes, is currently a worse defender, and will likely guard better players on a consistent basis. Same goes for Clarkson.

Kuzma is one of the better defenders on our SL team that consists of players that will be on our roster during the regular season.

There is nothing that suggests that Kuzma will be our worst defender. It's more likely that he ends up as one of our better defenders.

Hence hot take.


It's not supposed to be the popular opinion. Duh.

Hot take, Julius maybe traded if he isnt as good as advertised this season

Hot take, Kuzma will start in his place before the season ends

Hot Take: Multiple teams will be after half our roster all year long and our fanbase will be split on whether to build with what we have or shed as much salary as possible for 2018.

I agree with the first one

The second one makes no sense

For the third one, why didn't you just say 3 out of 4?

lol !! Same..

There're tons of things to do in life instead of typing 15 extra characters..

I actually agree with this.

 

Lopez isn't a great rebounder, so Julius should have more opportunities. Also, given that we are looking to "grab and go" i think teams might send fewer guys to crash the offensive glass and let everyone else get back on defense.

 

HOT TAKE: Julius Randle will put up 15-12-5 this season.
