Kuzma disappears too often. It's less noticeable because he has monster games. His bad games are really bad because he doesn't offer too much outside of his scoring. He didn't rebound the ball well today. His defense is improving, but it still needs a lot of work.

 

All of the young guys have major question marks. I really wish the Lakers had that A-level prospect who's doesn't need a lot of development. I get jealous watching players like Doncic thrive from day 1, while the Lakers' young guys still look like rookies in their 2nd or 3rd seasons.

 

Plenty of users were trashing Donovan Mitchell, but he's now on a tear and leading one of the hottest teams in the league right now. None of the Lakers' young guys can do that.

You sound like a troll / old lady.


Wiggins and Towns are inconsistent. Mitchell has been up and down. Hobert leads that team bye. His D. Tatum and Brown. And Zo and Ingram and Kuz too.

We had Kobe and Magic. We have Bron. Had Shaq. Pau. Kareem. Worthy. West.

They can have Porzingis Luka Dirk IversonHardenCurry etc

They're inconsistent, but still far more accomplished and more consistent than the Lakers guys. The Lakers young guys can't even handle a 15-game stretch which included a lot of mediocre to bad teams. Donovan Mitchell's current hot streak alone is better than anything any of the Lakers' young core have done.

All those young guys you mentioned are straight up better individual players than the Lakers young guys. Zo is a legit great team player. Kuz is a solid scorer. The rest are trash. Comparing them to Tatum who probably should have been ROY and showed up monstrous in the post season, or Mitchell who is the best player on a fine team is LOL.

Lonzo and Kuzma simply make each other better.

 

 

If both were healthy (which is very important) and the team had legit starters at the other 3 positions, we'd be fine.

 

 

 

It's not fair to rank our guys right now, IMHO.
