PG Ball: 15ppg 8apg 7rpg

SG Caldwell-Pope: 14ppg

SF Ingram: 17ppg 6rpg

PF Randle: 15ppg 9rpg

C Lopez: 20ppg 7rpg

 

Clarkson: I hope JC can become a legit 6th man however I see him being moved.

Deng: I hope this guy can simply show life however I see him being extended.

Brewer: I don't expect much other than energy.

Nance: I expect him to bring D and energy.

Kuzma: I have a feeling this guy ends up starting at PF at some point in the season.

Zubac: I expect him to bounce back from SL and pick up where he left off last season.

Thompson: Energy and hustle.

Hart: 3 & D.

 

Of course I would want more from everyone however I'm trying to be as realistic as possible.

My individual expectation is that Manaro starts the Kobe jersey retirement thread by Thanksgiving.

"Bryant had come to rage against the idea that Howard's clownish disposition could overtake the locker room, the Lakers' culture, and had warned Howard that he would never, ever let it happen."

Thinking Ball may be around 11 pts a game. No more than that


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!!!

You do realize that you have the Lakers as a team scoring around 130-140+ppg, right?  If they do that, we are going to the NBA Finals, no doubt.  LOL

If you add up all the points per game from last season we were at 142. Players miss games from time to time.

You think Ennis is getting 5 assists per game off the bench? Is there any back up PG in the NBA that did that last season? That's really high for a bench player.

Why does Kuzma get less rebounds per game if Clarkson plays point guard?

I expect Ingram to beat Ball in every statistical category except assists. I'm not sure why so many people think he's going to out rebound Ingram. Maybe in a couple of years this will happen but as a rookie, I doubt it.

No way in hell Deng and Nance both score 10 ppg.

WOW...come on guys!

Nobody includes possible injuries when making these types of predictions. Just admit your mistakes and move on!

If this is truly what you meant then list how many games each player will play this season as well. Without that information, most people will simply assume that these stats are based on each player playing an entire NBA season which would make this prediction nearly impossible as GCMD pointed out.
