    List your most outrageous predictions for the upcoming season, and let’s see who is right later.

    I’ll go first.

    I have a hunch that KCP will outperform Danny Green this year.

    How’s that for outrageous?

    Expectations are pretty high (for good reason), but we’re gonna struggle for a few months while we build chemistry and figure out lineups and rotations and deal with load management. Fans are gonna lose their s***.

    I'll go the opposite way: the Lakers start off with a tremendous run 15-5 or so, 1st or 2nd in the West. Clippers meanwhile get off to a terrible start at 6-14 or so and everyone wonders if they should just tank and rest Kawhi all year.

    His shooting coach, and the fact that Green was overall pretty unimpressive last year.

    And KCP is highly motivated.

    I predict Jason Kidd will be fired midseason for conduct unbecoming of a coach. The Lakers will use the ethics clause to escape his contract.

    Not so outrageous but I think the Lakers will lead the league in offensive rebounds.

    Outrageous... Caruso starts using Rogaine and becomes the equivalent of a human chia pet.

    Why do you think KCP is highly motived? If anything, he's the master in getting paid tens of millions of dollars to do jack.

    Outrageous does not necessarily = rational. Sounds like you agree it's outrageous.

    What's your outrageous take?

    My outrageous take is I think Boogie stays injury free this year, for real.

    Yeah, I'd predict our Big 3 all play less than 60 games each, but that's not outrageous. Boogie playing 82 is definitely outrageous!

    AD wins MVP and DPOY, averages 28/12/5/2, shuts down Kawhi during crunch time and the Lakers knockoff the Clippers in the 2nd round of the playoffs.
    And also Caruso getting the most minutes from the PG spot and becomes an intricate part of the rotation.
