    This Lakers team as a collection has too many injury prone players and I said this before Cousins got hurt. AD and Rondo always have injuries. A Bradley has miss half of the lastb3 seasons. Also I dont think its a good idea for Lebron to be the full time pg. He is too old and big. He needs to play the post. He will have a career high turnovers and could get injured using more energy. And I think they need another ball handler or 2. AD needs to play center but he dont want to....SMH... And there is no load management in the West!

    I'm not surprised if Alex Caruso ended up averaged 12ppg-15ppg a game.
    Rondo is a misfit in this team not personality wise but his style of game don't really fit with the Lakers.
    He's like Lonzo Ball that can shoot a 3 a little. except Lonzo Ball's defense is impressive

    Due to the last minute pick ups they had to do, they did great.. Now as for your grading, it was way off.. I don't know if you actually played any basketball 🏀, not professionally just in general.. Every player style of play changes to fit in. You got many player's in the NBA that are playing positions they're not use to playing.. So that take away a lot of that player's skills.. Now the Lakers is going to have everyone playing their right position.. Which is going to have a huge impact..

    It's crazy that the Lakes after all the signings how they are now the top pick to win the title. I get the AD signing but the rest just seems like nothing more the a repeat of last year. Danny Green held out to the last minute. When you look at the other ayers they signed no other team really gave those players a look. Nothing more then aging vets that will run out of gasby the end of the regular season. 48 wins. Sucks to say it. Im a huge LBJ fan and AD is not enough to many older players and very little youth to help their season. Looks on paper is not the same as on the Court. Just ask the 73 win Worries. The Lakes might get into the playoffs to brake the 6 year drought but they will be out in the 1st round.

    This must be the shittest grading I’ve ever seen. Rondo and AD/boogie had great chemistry and swept the blazers. He is the perfect leader for the bench with cousins or McGee coming off he will be very productive.
    Green A
    Givale B-
    Rondo C+
    KCP C-
    Bradley B+
    Cousins A+

    Let Bron and AD go 2v2 with pick and roll or leave a guy that shots 40% from three? Either way that's a tough pill to swallow

    Rondo suffered a Achilles tear and doesn't have all of his Boston Celtics footwork but on a team with Lebron James, and Anthony Davis, next year's 6th man of the year Kuzma, Boogie, and next year's most improved player J,Magee,all Danny Green, Avery Bradley,Rondo, gotta do is defend

    You cant give all the guards a C grade because there are so many they get redundant. Some of those guys are bad signings cuz the team lacks size and it would've been better to use that roster slot or cap space on a big

    I wish we still had Mo Wagner, great talent and smart. Great signings after Kawhi with boogie, green, ab and jd. Caruso is way underrated - great d and off the wing. The team is greatly improved on d and rebounding. The d will generate offense much more so than last year. If they can gel into a cohesive unit then it will be over, the title will come back to where it belongs. Lakers!!!

    I hope the lakers utilize their role players because it would minimize the overusage on their stars. There is no need for lebron and AD to play 38+ minutes a game. Fresh legs mean healthy legs

  • TheJayboi44
    TheJayboi44 Month ago

    After seeing the chaos the past few years, I wouldn't be surprised if they flopped. That's a lot of old players past their prime. You have AD, but his past with the pelicans was hardly impressive. It will be interesting to see if he was a "best player on a bad team" scenario, or if playing with one of, if not the best player of all time will help him get over the hump that was mediocrity in NO.

  • Cara de Huachinango
    Cara de Huachinango Month ago +40

    to put it in perspective, Lakers surrounded by NBA proven Champs with experience. Lebron, Rondo, McGee, Green, Cook, adding Davis, Bradley, Cousins, Kuzma in the mix. This will be a very balanced ball club.

    Kuzma, Cousins, and AD in the front is an insane front court(if lebron is playing pg)
