    Imaging being a pass first player since you learned basketball. Then in year 17 of your professional career, you finally get a dominant big man that can rebound and score with Dwight, Javale and Boogie cousins as the back ups.
    Gonna add 1-2 more years to his career passing more.

    Actual SET PLAY ALERT vs Minnesota T-Wolves during Anthony Davis's 50-point performance. 😀😀😀
    Coach Vogel actually ran 1-4 High UCLA that didn't just stay on 1 side of the court = Swing Offense with the ball being reversed to the OPPOSITE SIDE OF THE COURT.
    It eventually made it back to the original ballhandler, Lebron James for a Catch & Shoot 3-pointer (left side of course when it comes to Lebron).
    I just saw it on "Adam Spinella" TVclip Channel.
    He searches for Coaching X's & O's resulting in excellent execution like the head coach drew it up.
    That's regardless if the shot goes in or not.

    Lebron looks like the best PG I’ve seen play...his feel and knowledge of the game has me believing a healthy Lakers team wins it all.
    I never got to see Magic but watch the second three peat of Jordan as a kid.

    We need to give the coaching staff more credit, they have been excellent. You know what makes this Lakers team so special, Every player has been trough some shit. U got AD that had no help for years when he played for the Pelicans so he is battle hardened, u got rondo that wont take shit from anybody even from Lebron, Green that has much experience with the Spurs and Raptors and shoots very well and plays A+ defense a perfect player for Lebron. Kuzma is a player Lebron took under his wing it feels like. This team is full with veterans and has a great chance to win the chip.
