Are Laker fans still really pointing their fingers at the youth movement?
Ingram was on an absolute tear following the All-Star break.
Lonzo was probably on track to being first team All-Defense
Kuzma has improved as a defender and his offensive arsenal is coming along
The only young piece I've been disappointed in is Josh Hart, but even he has had lingering health problems.
Just accept the fact that we've been injury ridden. This team was the 4th seed prior to Bron initially going out.
They looked as if they had finally found some chemistry and were firing on all cylinders when BOOM, it all came crashing down due to health issues.
Yes this team was poorly constructed to start, but the youth we had is what allowed us to play at a high pace and also gave some financial freedom.
The FO simply made poor moves. Rather than signing serviceable players such as Randle and Brook at a discounted rate, they chose to pay Rondo, McGee, and Lance a combined $19+ million.
I thought it would work cause those guys are known to be gritty and hustle type players, but all they provided was subtle sparks every now and then.
It's the same few posters that consistently regurgitate that we need a star and should have traded for one when in reality, the deal was never even in place to begin with.
Kawhi is killing it in Toronto, how so you say? Because Toronto has great depth. They've gotten amazing production from guys like Siakim, Green, Ibaka, and even Vanfleet when he was healthy.
The game of basketball is much more than just Stars. Especially in this day and age where so many teams have crazy talent.
