    'A Poor mans Tatum?' Max you need to stfu! Kuz had a better rookie year than Tatum but was playing for a crap Laker team last year?? Tatum just got extra exposure due to C's making the playoffs but Kuz was a stand out and right there with Simmons and Mitchell for ROTY.

    I'm a Laker fan! The reality is that Danny Ainge doesn't care about any of his future picks as players, he's gonna throw most, if not all the picks plus a few players for Anthony Davis. He's probably planned this for a while and Boston will win the Davis bid. Even without Davis the Lakers can create a championship team literally for the start of next season without even losing anything. Lakers can go the Bradley Beal approach and give up on Ingram, KCP, 1st Rnd pick. In free agency, if Cousins is back to healthy, Lakers should offer good contract for his services. Lonzo, Beal, Bron, Kuzma, Cousins with bench of free agents (rondo, stephenson, maybe jeff green) plus youngsters of Hart, Zubac, Wagner and Myk! Sounds like a championship team right there and highly possible! There's always different ways to get back to the top!

    Ingratiate is Steven A. Smith favorite word but he’s right keep Kuzma trade Zo he can’t shoot and once he gets to the hole he’ll miss or pass it...great defender and great court vision but my guy Kuz is about his buckets and didn’t need the whole dad hype me up bcuz I’m not that good package deal

    They do NOT need a Superstar like these fools keep saying. The Lakers lost to Cleveland without Lebron. Let them go through the fire. Let them sow and grow. LeBron will love it come playoff and finals THIS YEAR! A lot of this rhetoric will be on my compilation video at the end of the season and postseason when the Lakers win the FINALS. Yep, I said it! The Lakers are the best team in the NBA right NOW. If LeBron can get to the finals with K. Love and the funny bunch, he can win the FINALS with the deep bench he has NOW!

    Ingram is the one they need to get rid of. The kid holds the ball for too long. If he's going to attack the basket he's got to be quick about it or pass the ball. I hate watching the lakers move the ball well until it comes to Ingram and he'll dribble like six times trying to figure out what he wants to do. Let lonzo, lebron and Rondo facilitate the offense. Ingram needs to catch and shoot, catch and pass, or catch and dribble penetrate, just like Kuzma.

  21. Hank Chinaski

    Lonzo ball is going to be a great player. Court vision, basketball IQ, athletisism, defense, rebounding. It was not a mistake to draft him. The only hole in his game is shot creating / scoring. If he can fix that part of his game he'll be an all star. Only people who dont know the game of basketball or harbor a grudge because of his dad think hes trash.

    So hot so cold where is the loyalty? Keep everyone,we got a winner, we been together for a half-season, you guys forget we beat the warriors twice the second time without LeBron for most of the time. The Cavs just had something to prove they've been made to look like their chomps,this game meant more to the Cavs and it did to the Lakers that's so obvious LeBron will come back they'll make the playoffs they might even win the chip this year!!

    Lakers made the same mistake they made with Paul George with Leonard, Spurs at that moment asked for Hart, Ingram and some picks and the Lakers wouldnt trade because they thought Kawhi would go there on his own. In the end they are stucked with too many young players that are too overhyped and too green to do a decent playoff run.

    I just love how y’all be making 2k trades for AD. Y’all must think the pelicans are going to trade him to La just cuz he say he wants to go there and he not signing no where else teams don’t care someone will take that chance to win a title and sway a player. And he ain’t sitting out and balling any less no matter what jersey he wearing. Lastly trading for AD will hollow the team out and if AD can’t carry the pelicans what makes you think a hollowed la roster is going to do with AD if lebron gets injured. He a fool if he go be a robin when he already Batman

    Smh lonzo makes basketball so easy for other Lakers. I Dont know how people dont see it. Look at how many leak out points kuz n Ingram get from lonzo full court passes. Lets not mention how much he sets up zubac n McGee Lately or beastly 19 points in 19 min. Watch lonzo on those buckets. Yea he a horrible free throw shooter n last year he couldn't shoot or finish at rim. Out of those 3 categories he fix 2 of them, its called progression. Rondo didn't learn to shoot till like 7 yrs in.

    Lakers are a PG away, they just not any PG or one that's marginally better than Lonzo they need a dynamite offensive PG who can shoot and spread the floor but also get jiggy off the dribble, Dame Lillard is who I'm thinking he'd be the perfect PG for Lakeshow and would pair great with LeBron, trade is highly unlikely but I'd unload anyone other than LeBron for Dame. Lonzo, Ingram, 1st round pick for Dame in a hypothetical world.

    This is funny, Kuz is not as good as people claim and has cost the Lakers games with his jacking and selfish play and no defense.. He is simply a Rashard Lewis light player. Ingram is the better player of the 2, way better defender, way better 1 on 1 player, more heart and determination..

    Finally someone calls it as it is.. the lakers fell into the hype with lonzo. Lonzo is an okay player who has the talent to be great but he seems to not have the passion for it like kuzma. When you look at the talent they passed up for Lonzo who are already better then him even markannen is a better player then him.. I see exactly what Stephen A is saying
