I hope this is the case with Hart ahead of KCP and Zu and tye rooks ahead of McGee Lance and Beasley.

If Zu can put some of that Marc Gasol potential together he could benefit from Bron in the way Big Z did years ago.
Svi can shoot... And do a bit more than that.
Mo the same.

If the vets are what we think more or less. Solid additions who can play ball but the rooks and Zu surpass them, we can be contenders. Last year we saw that to some degree

I think james and ingram will be our clear cut best players barring injury. I personally believe Ingram has a very good chance to explode this year and be the guy we thought he would be. Versatile. Pesky for perimeter and some big men players.

 

Rondo's experience and playmaking and leadership will be a tremendous thing we've been missing. He has heart. I think he's the type of guy players hate playing against, but love being with him in the same locker room.

 

Kuzma is an enigma. Will he be a classic case of peaking early? His peak is pretty good so far. He has great scoring abilities. I don't think he'll be elite next year, but will be critical to us going deep into the playoffs.

 

Ball will be impactful, and I think his shooting percentage will increase slightly.. but wont see a real increase until maybe end of the year or his third season. He will gain confidence in going to the hole and he has elite vision which automatically puts him top 5 imo.

 

 

the rest of the guys are kinda a wash until you get to Mcgee, imo.

I think svi will be effective sooner because of his shooting

  4. Ingram
  5. KCP

  7. Hart

  9. Beasley

I agree with most of this based on last season.

 

Outside of shooting/scoring (3pt and FT), Lonzo had better stats and impact than Kuzma and Ingram.  Lonzo was #1 or top 2 in ORB, DRB, TRB, AST, SPG and BPG if you ignore Andre Ingram and Larry Nance Jr.  Hard to argue that Lonzo's potential, based on his college stats, couldn't equal or exceed any of the other young players and I'm not even joking.

 

If Lonzo shoots 37% from 3 and 65% from FT, he will have a legit breakout season...those aren't even unreasonable stats.  Ingram shot 40% from 3 at Duke, 29% his rookie season and 39% as a sophomore.  Lonzo shot 41% from 3 at UCLA, 30% as a rookie...he also shot around 67% from FT at UCLA.

 

IMHO, Lonzo is closer to a breakout than a bust.  He had pretty much everything go wrong as a rookie.  I don't think that will happen 2 years in a row.

Outside of the obvious with Lebron being atop the food chain, I don't think there's really any way to rank the remainder of the players on this team.

I personally view it as one of the beauties of this roster and upcoming season.

 

You have proven veteran talent that we know can produce, but at the same time, they're on contract years and will likely/hopefully try and elevate their games and provide the utmost competition on the practice court as well as in game.

Yeah.

 

Hard to rank everyone after LeBron.

 

As far as which guys may actually be solely responsible for some wins after LBJ i'd say

 

Kuz

Ball

BI

Rondo

KCP

 

All the rest


Excited for  1. Lebron! (Still love me some Kobe, but damn this guy is amazing) 2. Another big get (Whether in FA or in a trade we need some attractions and closers) 3. Young Guys making big jump (Assuming we have anyone left after more necessary moves either genius ones or in desperation)

READY FOR SEASON!!!

If we prioritize pace and defense, this ranking would look different.  I'd place Rondo, Lonzo, McGee and Lance higher in that scenario than most others.  Kuzma is near the top for me in either scenario, not because he's a great defender but he seems to fill in gaps more than get stops.

Lonzo didn't have a bad rookie season by any means, other than his scoring and FT shooting. I think Ingram and Kuzma were overall better (due to Ball's injuries, partly), but I can see him surpassing both of them next season for sure. I just can't base the rankings on future production since we haven't seen anything.

They were better scorers, yes.

 

Rebounding

Passing

Defense

Impact on Team Defense

Impact on Team Offense

 

I think Lonzo was top 2 in all of those.
