Lonzo Ball was a bad shooter, who got better as the season progressed before his injury. He played good defense, and averaged 7+ boards and 7.5 assists and 1.8 steals and only 2.8 turnovers (awesome for a rookie PG) per 36 minutes.

Kuzma was an excellent scorer for a rookie. 16 and 6 per game as a rookie is very good.

I'm extremely miffed that they renounced Randle who was arguably the best player on that team. Not sure what they think they gain with Rondo other than veteran leadership that LeBron already provides. I really like Randle, he's a good add for NOP.
Just curious............ you're "miffed" because you're a Lakers fan?

They have some good players. I don't think anyone is arguing that. In a couple of years some of those players might even be very good, but Lebron will be regressing by then.

Lonzo Ball shot 36% from the field before the ASB, and 37% after. I'm not sure he showed much improvement.


There are lots of better teams that Lebron could have joined. Not many worse teams, in my opinion. If he's happy there though, that's all that matters. Just seems like an odd fit.

You don't think he'll have to carry the Lakers?

He definitely will have to unless they plan on getting a couple of other stars

So he takes a get right deal and passes up 50+ mil somewhere else in hopes that he’ll be the one guy who recovers from this injury.

Silver has his hands full with this league.

That's beyond a get right deal.
