Nothing bad about having a new topic, our thoughts may have changed.

Not my thoughts though. I was never high for us making the play-offs and i still consider a 35+ wins season success.

I'll go with about 32 wins...

 

And also the same amount of double digit losses

(32 losses by 10+)


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!!!

I voted <25. 

 

Reasoning:

  1. We have no shooters.
  2. The defense still looks suspect. No sorry...it looks terrible.
  3. Ingram is not ready...yet.
  4. Randle has a ceiling...and we've already seen it.
  5. Clarkson looks like he's regressed.
  6. We are even younger than last year.
  7. Lonzo will be an improvement, but his ability to stay healthy has me skeptical.
  8. Behind Lonzo we have who?
  9. Kuzma looks like the best player on the team not named Lonzo...but isn't ready for prime time.

Agree with pretty much all of that (but I do think the win total will be better than 25). 

 

I think Kuzma is a shooter, and Brook might be, as well.

That pathetic showing makes me want to double down on the <25 prediction. 

 

Brook can shoot....better question is how many can he make?
