He has spurts through out the game which he becomes a factor and does it right by hustling on D, pushin the ball and making those 3 sometimes.

 

However, if we all agree on that he sometimes holds the ball way to much or just shoots it like hes curry. Either on a fast break which lakers are 3-1 run or shoots a airball to win the game.

 

my theory is that hes here only 1 year, so anything he wants to do is a free pass. he gets his money and go.

Don't get me started. I think the disgust was shared by the Mamba who promptly exited stage left after that.

He will get a big shot once in a while but he will also make 3 awful shots to counter it. You can't win with a player like that getting 12+ shots a game. If we don't get PG this offseason I would like to see Hart take the starting role.

He's a good defensive player (overrated) and a terrible offensive one. Those hero shots going in sometimes makes people think he's good for the teams offense. He's not. Awful decision making, his shot selection is an abomination.

Two hero shots down the stretch. One cut a 5 pt lead down to 2 and paved the way for Ingram to tie the game. The second one was an embarrassing airball that could have won it. Frankly, KCP should never be the guy who brings the ball down. He's pretty good as a catch and shoot guy, but is a lot less effective if he has to get his own shot or try to create for others.

 

KCP is one of those guys who needs to learn his role. He's a 3 and D guy trying to be Steph Curry for us. It's just not happening.

He's a 3s and D guy who isn't all that accurate shooting 3s and while he does compete defensively which rubs off on everyone else, he also gambles too much which limits his overall defensive impact.

Is he that much worse from 3 than any of our other guys?

 

All are pretty bad and someone has to shoot.

I'd rather KCP over Ingram, Ball or Randle from deep for now.

 

Clean up our FT, Limit some stupid turnovers. Play all 48.

We'd be 2 or 3 more wins better.

Possibly 4


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!!!

The problem is some fans don't see the other 3 boneheaded plays he's making

Name a SG in this league qho always tales level headed shots?


There are few if any.

Sasha Vujacic took bad shots. Kobe did. Llat does. JR Smith and Waiters are really extreme versions particularly earlier in their career.
Lou and Nick took bad shots.

Get over it.

He has hit a big shot ib at least 6 games

None of those players were ever good in those roles but Kobe.  Kinda funny how you prove the point by trying to argue why people shouldn't have a problem with it.

Who the [expletive] wants Nick Young, Dion Waiters or even JR Smith taking a bunch of bad shots and leading their team in FGs taken in close games?

He didn't play in the road games at Cleveland, or Houston.   We had two solid offensive performances in those games, scoring over 110 points in each game (120+ against Houston).

Guys we need to wait 12 more seasons before we can even halfway understand how he is currently impacting the team. Until then, we need to completely ignore all negatives.

He is only 24 years old...what were you doing at 24 years old? Living with your mom?

He will eventually become Steph Curry, just give it time!

What we need to do is focus on how much his 5 rebounds per game benefits the team.

Just relax!

KCP has been in the league 4 years, which 4th year player on the Lakers is being defended? Which 4th year player is anyone asking others to wait more time for evaluations?
