    How many summers did we talk about Melo joining Kobe, then Bron? Crazy. And he is actually perfect to play with Ad and Bron. And he is a “bull” holding his post.

    No perimeter D, but a better player for us than Kief I think. As long as he stays within his lane - 6 to 8 shots per game.

    Wow, that was actually pretty funny. No way Lebron thought of that one on his own. Haha.

    way better offense than Kief, and I think Kief's defense was overrated as well.

    We have already put together a superior team over last year's squad, and we still have a MLE and Schroder floating around. Great Job so far by Rob IMO.

    Is there analytics for how shooters who come to LA just forget how to?

    If we stay healthy, we are going to steamroll the western conference next year.

    We have plenty of options...neither of those guys are critical. Nice to have but not critical.

    On the bright side, at least signing Monk will reduce the overall team age to 103.

    Shooters coming to LA is like geology. The study of time and pressure. When you become a Laker, you have no time to be good and the pressure is much more fierce.

    Can most handle it? The answer is no. That's why only superstars matter in the Lakers org.

    Injuries knocked a few young guys out of the picture this season though. Depth and talent..even if it's aged. LOL

    Skimmed thru the list...not too many "critical" & realistic guys for the mle. Who are you thinking of?

    With our average age, our team is at high risk for COVID complications.

    Aside from signing him, we couldn't of asked for a better outcome for the Derozan situation.

    Chicago is looking nice. Seems that “meeting with the Clippers” was just some leverage from DeRozan’s agent.
