Its possible. His greatest strength is consistency. He always brings the same level of play. But first he needs to start. Sick of these bad starts because of basically playing 4-5 for the first 6 mins with KCP out there.

Love how hard he works. Happy he’s playing well...so far. If he can start hitting that 3 with more consistency he WILL be a key contributor going forward. Wasn’t too smart paying Pope when we had a cheaper option with a higher ceiling in Hart. He’s surprising some wouldn’t you say???


Bye for now

If he keeps it up he will be.I was a fan of his when he went to Nova, and its great to see him succeed in the league. He might not be the most physically talented, but he's worked hard to hone his craft and its showing. Love what he is doing right now and hope he continues to grow. 


All I want for Christmas is a Laker girl :D

KCP at present isn’t delivering on either end,I’d start Hart he is playing with confidence and that makes a difference. Who’d get cut is Zu once Mo recovers and keep Williams in light rotation.

Better than KCP right now that's for sure. His 3 point shooting is much, much needed.

Guys like him actually don’t concern me bringing it every night. He kinda did last year once he got in rotation

How a player carries themselves is kind of a big tell in how much you can rely on them. Hart carries himself confidently and with toughness

And when he’s on the floor he looks incredibly focused at all times

I think ignoring stats he’ll perform at a consistent level all season if healthu

Josh aka “Jason” the eagle Hart is our best young player! Today as I type this and eat a nice bowl of sweet potatoes. Crow all you want about the potential of the others, josh is delivering right now..on both ends. I don’t think he will win MIP but I’d be happy if he was in the conversation later in the year.

He’s definitely playing the best and most consistent

I hope Ingram, ball and kuzma pass him because with how well he’s playing that would be as good as it gets to have happen

They all are better players. Hart plays off a creator the best. Hart vs Kuzma is the only discussion worth arguing

KCP will prove you all wrong.

 

You joke but he will.  I still don't understand the criticism of KCP.  He's not great but he's also not bad.  People complained about his shooting last year and he shot around 38% from 3...that's actually pretty good.  Does he gamble on D?  Sure but if we played better as a team, rotating and helping the way we should, that would lead to a lot of steals.

 

As for Josh Hart MIP?  Possible.  It will be hard though because he didn't have a bad year last year.   If Lonzo shoots anywhere near 38% from 3 this year while averaging around 16ppg, he will have a better shot.  Statistically, he wasn't a good scorer last year.  I think MIP will go to a player who has improved the most, not the player who plays the best but improved minimally.

KCP will be fine. He gets better as the season rolls along.

But Hart is still better and a possible MIP candidate.
