Hart. Really think he's set to have a great season.
Again we have not had draft picks this good in the last 20 years. You say we overate our draft picks. I’d really love to see this long list of names. Personally I was never high on any of our previous draft picks and always thought we could’ve drafted someone better. (Missed on Monta Ellis, Louis Williams, Leandro Barbosa, Nate Robinson, Gerald Green, Danny Granger, etc.)
This is like the first time ever we have had draft picks that have as much potential as these guys. I mean we have Ingram, Ball, Kuz, Hart, Zu, not to mention D-Lo, Randle, Nance, and Clarkson. Now you have Mo, Svi, and Bonga. You see, our picks recently have been amazing as they have usually panned out. You can’t really say any of those dudes not named Mo, Svi, or Bonga have been busts.
Was going to answer this , but I see the OP was made by @LTLakerFan, and I will not participate in his threads.
George, Vujacic, Vafer, Farmar, Crittenton, Morris, Gaudlock, Ebanks, Kelly, Brown, Clarkson, Zubac...
Come on man, we see some highlights or two/three summer league games and all of a sudden we found a gem in the draft.
Kenzo I tend to agree with you but you can't always have a 20/10 guy... however, these guys all play a role.
I'll just leave this here...
They all do play a role. I loved machine but he was a borderline NBA player. We saw some practice highlights and had him winning 3-pt shootout
Every time I've ever watched that video I always laugh at the 57 second mark when the camera is on Phil Jackson. Phil is like "Really..... all this comes down to Sasha at the FI, you got to be kidding me. All the hard work and this is how our season ends good or bad."
Vujacic's biggest moment as a Laker...other than that throw down against Sacramento. All net on both.
On topic: a co-worker of mine thought Svi hasn't been signed because he could be part of an impending trade. Food for thought?
Nah, I think they were waiting for Bron to sign to make sure we have our ducks in a row.
With what he brings, he’s extreme value right now.
