    Not sure what you are saying about putting him in front of Favors. And what exactly is insane?

    Nah, you're right.

    Even if we got Cousins (which obviously we won't cause he's a Laker now, so it's not even an option) he would NOT start over Favors.
    Zion ''The Earthquake'' Williamson

    Paying attention to the next draft too early.

    Lakers took the role player signing suggestion to use their new cap money seriously. They took a chance at the a max guy, then immediately focused on signing role guys. All in all they are putting together a decent team (on paper).

    Their third best player might be KCP.

    They are not a good team.

    3-4 years ago they would have had a super team.

    The Lakers have two elite stars, a oft-injured former All Star Center, a young scoring forward whoís still growing, and a lot of depth full of experienced vets. I know we donít like them for how they handled the AD trade, but Lakers are definitely a good team if their duo stays healthy most of the season.

    Pretty self explanatory really. Not hard to figure.

    That means LA can't even try to move them later if they see an avenue to improve.

    Sounds like a Demps move

    Good post and voice of reason. We all may dislike all of the Lakers players and yes it's possible that they could suck but unfortunately there is a very high probability they will be very good next year

    These look like the same players Dell Demps liked.

    You could easily rephrase it as;

    The Lakers have two elite stars, one of whom has a history of sulking and is a continuous injury threat, and the other is 35. They have a former all-star centre whose legs have spent the last two years exploding and who was so disastrously bad that he found a way to sink Golden State's offense last season. He's always been a negative on D, and that has only gotten worse recently. They have a young scoring forward who is absolute garbage by all advanced metrics, and is a horrendous defender, and they have no quality depth: they only have maybe 2 people outside of Lebron who can create their own shot, and most of their depth is well over the age of 30 in the form of people like Rondo and Dudley.

    It has nothing to do with whether we like them or not. Their roster is NOT GOOD. Could they have a super lucky year, where they have no injury issues, where Rondo and Boogie play like it was 2011 not 2019, where Lebron puts in effort on defense and where AD manages to stay in all of his games without walking out? Sure, they could. But is that really more likely than the players just y'know, being who they are?

    So what? Dell Demps wasn't a trash GM no matter how much hindsight and hyperbole people want to use now.

    The Lakers might not be as good as people think but that roster also isn't terrible.

    Is Gabe Fernandez some sort of NBA basketball savant I've never heard of? What is that article supposed to do?

    I’m sure this is what AD and Lebron had in mind all along.

    Yes because this is what Davis wanted in LA

    I agree! And it was also a better roster when Dell constructed it: you know, when Rondo was 2 years younger, and before Boogie's legs exploded.
