I still say the Lakers should have kept Ingram, but I will give Kyle the benefit of the doubt. If they are still around in June...OK.

Lakers needs more energy off the bench and Kyle will provide this. And game one against clippers was only enough to show that Lakers was simply out coached wrong players in at the wrong time 🏀😡🏀

... there is a small that has to crack back on on of the Lakers bigs... for the exact same reason Lebron is going to have to check guards in space... which he can do... but not for the entire game. Lakers are gonna have a bych of a time guarding tandem backcouts when they're running two bigs... Houston, Portland, Denver and Utah... and the lakers really don't have "great" deep shooters... they've got decent catch and shoot role players... Houston is going to force Lebron guard Harden and Westbrook... screen/switch/screen/go.... all day. That's tough.

Steph Curry will be one if the biggest factors why D”Lo will be great player and leader for years to come

I swear, there is no pleasing espn. There's always an issue with the lakers every year no matter what we do. Yet they don't say the same thing to other teams. I'm tired of this bullshit and yet they get surprised about people the hating news.
MisterAlerion 8 months ago
Woj knows. Iggy is going to shift the balance between the LA teams. The best clutch finals player that isn't on a contender. I think he'll be with the Lakers. Trade KCPs money and some picks for him
Lord Anton

actually they dont really need kuzma IF everybody stays healthy. but it'd be better if he step up his game so that lakers could still be a top team and to keep AD even if LBJ's career declines after few more season.

You don't need a big three, you need just what the Lakers have, LeBron, AD, and a bunch of high quality role players.

Kuzma is falling for bait in LA, look at dudes hair, he’s more worried about his shitty style then basketball. He’s gonna have a dip in numbers this season from trying too hard watch......

The Lakers cannot count on Kuzma to be the Big 3. He does not have that kind of skill and he is injury prone!
deranged 8 months ago
Kuzma no way in earth, could form a big 3 with Bron and AD... He is a role player and will remain a role player. As long as he brings a solid defense, that will be more than enough from his side...

I'm sorry guys but the Laker's don't need Kuz ,, Javale & Dwight are going to combine for 20 & 10 , every night Danny Green and Quinn Cook are going to combine for five 3's per night and 20 points .. The Lakers are deep, and they don't need a 3rd star. The Lakers have 8 genuine starters to rotate .
We need u kuz. I hope u play on opening night. I’m hoping to see u play soon. We just need u in the lineup then we will be 10 times better. We need u kuz please come back soon 🙏
bcvbb hyui bro I’m talking about Kuzma my second favorite player on the lakers not iggy lol 😂

Lebron ALWAYS try to stack his teams. Anthony Davis, Dwight Howard, McGee... and now Antetokounmpo! This team is stacked to the hilt! That said, I'm hoping that they lose. I like when players gotta work hard, compete for victories. Lebron is averse to that process.

Kuzma won't be able to live up to expectations. Hasn't yet and people keep marking excuses for him he's not great but does have limited skills. Its alot of pressure for anyone who wears a Lakers uniform.

His threes in preseason has improved true. I just dont trust him. His defense I disagree he cant guard anyone one on one.
