    This is a placeholder lineup for the playoffs: once the playoffs hit, do the same thing the Lakers did last year and move AD to the 5. You can play Gasol 5-10 minutes at the start of each half if you need to get more shooting at the center spot for the
    This what was really stupid about the whole Drummond thing prior to AD's groin: AD at the 5 is always going be the way the Lakers get a big advantage in the playoffs.

    I personally see no way a guy who’s been a starter and an allstar agrees to come off the bench in the prime of their career.

    if siakam came, i think you can start him and go pg-less with kcp at the 1 like we did some last year. he's a capable secondary ballhandler and can defend on the perimeter.

    in closing lineups, you sit the center and move AC onto the floor. nobody ever scores again.

    go to realgm and they'll show you, you can combine players affer that moratorium to trade a guy after he re-signed, i think sometime in Dec and theres no shot in hell Tor gives up Siakam and Og for kuz, ds and a low end pick

    Maybe for the regular season but the playoffs, you need centers like Dwight/Javale with Bron because Bron doesn't play all his minutes with AD. Bron plays really well with centers who can roll to the rim which is why he had very good success with Varejao, Chris Andersen, Dwight, and Javale. He does poorly with centers who are ball dominant and primarily play in the post.

    well, my suggestion was just siakam, but ok.

    still not seeing where aggregating S&T with other players is not legal?

    the december guideline is in reference to trading players signed in the summer using exceptions, not sign-and-trades, which are a different animal.

    i mean, i'd believe it was a rule, tbh, as i can't recall seeing such a trade recently. but i can't find anything explicitly outlawing it?

    theres a cap wiz on realgm called smithy, he'll verify for you and I also dont think tor is giving us siakam for kuz/ds and a pick either, dont think they want another rd of 2 small guards starting

    Vogel and the coaching staff didn't use Schroder that well either. They deserve some blame. We barely saw any Harrell/Schroder P & R which was highly fruitful in the preseason and in the 1st month of the year. They kept caving in and wanting to please him with the starting role, which I don't get at all. He's an elite 6th man scorer and we didn't even explore that. I *get* that they didn't want to burden Lebron and wanted to relieve him off scoring and playmaking opportunities but it threw the whole team off. It's also kind of disrespectful to AC who was a HIGHLY productive guy in the playoffs being next to Bron and AD.

    I felt like this team still had the horses for the race. Maybe we don't go all the way because of injuries but we still shouldn't have flamed out the way we did against an inexperienced Suns squad

    I honestly don't think if we had stayed healthy having Schroder in the starting lineup would've continued to be successful and sustainable. Felt like a Luke/Ariza situation from years ago.

    agree on schroder--we were dumb there. though i think that was his/upper management's fault, not the coaching staff.

    disagree on what happened with phx series. we were firmly in control with AD healthy. and phx just stomped denver, so it's not like they're terrible or something. i get that people are sore because the clips pulled out a series without their big star, but i'd remind them that utah was without their allstar pg and mitchell was clearly unable to push off one of his legs (it was pretty painful to watch, tbh).

    i think if booker was out and paul was playing one leg, we beat phx without AD, too.

    What’s with the 3 names at bottom of that still shot (specifically Caruso) being said to be on the way out? Per whom?

    per the d****** that ensured we couldn't compete in lebron's first year by making a bunch of dumb signings and short-sighted panic trades?
