    I've come back to this video three weeks after watching it...
    now that Rondo has a broken hand and BI has been running the offense quite a bit.
    Invariably, commentators have been talking about how stagnant and slow the offense is at times (despite the Lakers being a high paced team).
    And here's the thing: it slows down because BI is a slow-down, iso-scorer. Think James Harden. Dribble, dribble, dribble... but instead of the step-back 3, BI takes mid-range jumpers, turnarounds or gets to the basket.
    He's competent, but I'm not sure he's a good fit with the Lakers' new offensive strategy... and as much as he's taken huge strides defensively, he clashes with LeBron (they both require the ball too much), isn't a great outside shooter, and isn't fitting with the up-tempo style that guys like Lonzo, Josh Hart and Kyle Kuzma really gel with.
    I think it's time for the Lakers to put him on the trading block. As much as I like the guy, we need a shooter more than we need Brandon Ingram at this point.

    idk Brandon Ingram ball handling skills isn't that good enough . I'm not saying he's bad. but not good enough.

    oh great let's use Ingram as PG and put Ball and Rondo on the bench and let Josh Hart play 48 minutes per game with no back up

    The lakers should try to trade ingram, pope & rondo for beal and satoransky. If you can trade Covington and saric for butler. Then i think you can do this deal. 🤔

    Smartest move i keep thinking of is not trading any of their core 4 young players: Ball, Ingram, Kuzma, Hart. So what if they don’t make playoffs this year. They shouldn’t have to hinder their development as the next big team by getting carried by Lebron and a second superstar. I think Lakers should wait it out and not trade any of these guys. All have so much potential, including Zo.

    According to my analysis, for the Lakers to contend, they need to complete 2 trades for disgruntled superstars:
    1. Ingram & Ball for Kemba Walker.
    2. KCP & McGee & 1st Rnd Pick for Marc Gasol & Omri Casspri.
    Lakers would have a line-up of
    Kemba Walker/Rondo
    Hart/Stephenson
    LeBron/Casspri
    Kuzma/Beasley
    Gasol/Chandler
    According to advanced statistical analysis, this is the best line-up that the Lakers can get, and would win 59 games based on a statistical simulator.

    I think the Lakers need to package Ingram with ball and try to get a disgruntled superstar. Maybe Ingram, ball, and a couple of picks for John Wall? They just missed out on the Jimmy Butler fire sale and I can't think of anyone else.

    Back in 2014, I met my love on a dating site and immediately, we got talking and wanted to see each other, it was a quick one. We fell in love fast, wanted to move to the next level and I made her feel like the one girl in the world. move to mid 2015, we got married and git a beautiful kids, move to a new home. Now, the story is that I have a job which is very tasking. I travel alot, now, recently, I started feeling insecure, because I know who I'm in love with, she started giving me this attention, Online in WhatsApp night and won't give me a text. I felt back, talked to her about this but said its nothing. curiosity kills the cats so I was curious to know who she was always talking to. Story short, I got on the internet and search for hackers who can penetrate and give me access and they did. The painful part is she was always talking to her new lover. my heart was broken and I never want to trust anyone anymore. For reference purpose, this is the mail that got the job done. prohacker2177 @ gmail com whatsapp: +16313154546

    Does anyone else remember when Magic claimed that he put together this team, not thinking about creating a great shooting team in a 3 point shooting league, but rather a team based upon gutsy and gritty Defense! Lmao, what happened to this Defensive juggernaut that Magic claims to have created?!

  • Farty McGee

    Skip is SUCH an LA homer!!! I do agree that trading Ingram would fetch LA the shooter that they need! Using Ingram at PG is genius too Bc it will have one of two likely results: Ingram becomes the starting PG, making the lakers much better, OR, he will become trade bait of much greater value! Worst case: Ingram flops entirely, devaluing him for the Lakers and damaging his career irreparably!
    It’s awesome seeing D Rose make this unprecedented comeback with his career! I hope for the very best for Rose, seeing a man overcome such mental challenges is wonderful and should give hope to others struggling with similar battles all across the country!

    the only way to build a real dynasty is to do it with your draft picks

    trading for players and what not does not make it special
    if they wanna keep on trading their #2 picks for players
    and make some fake all star team then whatever

    Ingram is better now than kuzma and Hart and have way more potential than both in the future.
    What the Lakers however should do is get another star in the off season and keep Ingram for when LBJ starts declining along with the other young pieces and replace some of the other veteran players that don't fit with make up of this team, I guess the Lakers makes the Sport media lots of money so they have to push different topics every day!
