    Hanging on to Kuzman seems like the right thing to do for the Lakers. Although Ball is thought to have the biggest upside followed by BI m, it was Kuzman who had the most development over his fellow draftees. He seems to be the most instep with Lebron. Their chemistry seems undeniable. While.Ball also ‘thinks’ like Lebron. the problem is he can’t make a shot. So Ball to Lebron is great Lebron passing to Ball doesn’t cause the same buzz. In NO. I think Ball will excel if he stays healthy. I picture Ball with Zion Williamson, drew holiday and Ingram on the wings averaging double assists. That will be a given. He already is a plus defender only to get better as he gains experience. His defensive instincts are already top notch as is his rebounding from the guard position. If Ball improves his shooting percentage both from the field and the free throw line, the sky is the limit for he and his team moving forward. Kudos to David Griffith for extracting every once of juice out of the fruit (orange) that was AD.

    on december 20th 2018 SAS says lakers need to do whatever they need to do to get AD even if that means trading brandon ingram. On January 10th 2019 SAS says Lakers need to hold on to Kuzma. SAS is a professional flip flopper

    Kuzma is the future star of the league. A star in the making. You bring AD for what, NO!!! You look for the future. Kyle is just 23 an is just going to get better and better. Even Lebron has 2 or 3 years left. What are you going to do next? If the Lakers trade Kuzma, Magic Johnson should resign immediatly!!!! Keep Kuzma and the championships will be coming his way.

    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!

    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.

  46. Hank Chinaski

    Hank Chinaski5 개월 전

    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.

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.

  78. おきちゅhachi

    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..
