Lakers obviously just added Andre Drummond, Nets added LeMarcus Aldridge after adding Blake Griffin a few weeks ago. Assuming both teams are healthy just looking ahead to a potential Finals matchup how would you guys feel about matching up with them?
To me our best chance would be just dominating them with our front line, which assuming AD is healthy I’d expect that to be the case. Drummond, AD, and Harrell should be able to and must impose their will on Brooklyn’s front line.
The biggest question would be if we’re gonna be able to slow down all of the fire power the Nets have on the perimeter. LeBron and KD would probably cancel each other out IMO, but that still leaves us having to slow down Kyrie and Harden.
Eyebrows were raised when the Nets added Blake Griffin and LeMarcus Aldridge, but you could make the argument both players have more question marks considering their defensive flaws.
Brooklyn obviously has so much firepower offensively not just with their three stars,...
..... just saw on line that Elgin passed away. That is really sad. He was GREAT. I remember a quote once that if Julius Erving was a doctor, Elgin Baylor was a brain surgeon. He and Jerry and Chick came to L.A. and brought us professional basketball.
