    Last season, the first post was about us making the playoffs. Hopefully we Lakers fans can be more rational in the 1st season of the post Kobe Era, or it will be a long long season.

    With that said, what are your hopes for this season?

    With Sacre not on the team anymore, this season is already a success for @Jonah 2.0

    I'm so used to him being on the squad that I was literally shocked to find out he wasn't given a new contract. Starting the year off on a positive note.

    What's good y'all? I don't post much on here but I'm a laker fan. With that said. I'm looking forward to see the young guys on the squad develope. Playoffs probably won't happen but I feel like this year is critical to where the team might be in 2 years.

    Nick Young looking like he wants to hoop this year... Was looking good in camp, we need his shooting ability I'm happy Mitch didn't dump him

    I want him gone. This team has no need for 31 year old knuckle heads. He doesn't shoot it well enough or consistently enough to justify the headache...

    I hope Ingram learns from Simmons and doesn't try to bulk up at the expense of his lower extremities.

    Not gonna win a whole lot of games but they should be fun to watch. I just hope the young core gels together and we're able to build off this season.

    U guys have any thoughts on the Randle vs. Nance "debate"?
  • joeyfkncrakk
    joeyfkncrakk Members Posts: 2,956 ✭✭✭✭✭
    It's not a battle to me anymore, Randle is the lead at the 4, Nance to me, is like our Swiss Army knife Robert Horry with less range... he has to embrace that role, Horry was a do it all for the team type of guy which I see a lot in Nance

    Well said.. i dont think it ever was a battle but ive always like what lance had in the bag... it think Horryesque is absolutely apropos


    how has Dlo looked? havent watched any preseason

    1st game real meh on offense. Defensively played solid especially considering how terrible he was on that end last year.

    2nd game looked like he did in summer league scoring with ease, feeding guys easy looks. Been the best player on the team all offseason.


    DFish was gushing over him in the postgame show saying he can just look and see DLo has that Lakers Alpha star in him.

    I think we could be a 35 win team next year and hopefully show free agents we are moving in the right direction.

    Let Swaggy work.... he's motivated and he has a role he can fill being our shooter, he's still our best shooter and Lukes system will be perfect for him and he will at least up his trade value
