    THT is being set up to have one of the more accomplished careers in NBA history
    Especially with his emergence, he has a legitimate shot of beginning his career with 3 to 4 championships within his first four years of his career
    Four years of learning from one of the most, if not the most, dominant primary ball-handler the game has ever seen

    Entering his fifth NBA season he has the chance to be a 3 to 4-time NBA champion while being only 24 years old with a 30/31 old AD. Primed and ready to leave his own legacy in Los Angeles.
    Feel like he is being set up to win 7-9.

    What a dream scenario for the Lakers to find this kid. Feel like we are watching the next great Laker.

    LBJ's greatest assist ever..potentially

    Pretty solid LAL legacy for LBJ if he not only joins and helps the Lakers move past the Celtics in the title count, but also assists in landing/developing a potential star in THT and it leads to another couple/few titles after he's gone. And that's after pulling AD over to LAL. Good shit

    THT needs north of 20 minutes a night this season. Kobe needed the same @ 19 yrs old. Take a couple/few minutes from everybody and make that his portion. Then next season - if he's not traded for a star in the offseason - 35 minutes a night and a starting role. Schroder will just have to leave in FA and vacate minutes for KCP/Caruso. Kobe was @ 38 minutes a game by his 3rd year and a starter. He's not Kobe, but he does look pretty special, so probably the safest path for his development

    I think the guy losing the most is Matthews who will find his potential minutes going to Talen.
    Morris as well should lose the minutes he had last year to Gasol.
    Morris, Matthews and Dudley should be veterans in reserve in case someone gets hurt or needs rest.

    PG: Shredder28, Caruso20, Cook0
    SG: Pope24, Talen20, Matthews4
    SF: LeBron34, Kuz14, McKinnie0
    PF: Davis34, Kuz14, Dudley0, Kostas0
    C : Montrezl28, Gasol16, Morris4, Cacok0

    AD, LeBron, and Kuzma should share all the SF/PF minutes between just them 3. Keeps them loose having to be athletic enough knowing that they will have to try and keep up with SF for a few shifts a game. AD can get his jollies as its obvious he enjoys playing offensively like a SF while providing menacing length defensively.
    If Kuzma is rolling then AD can move to C and the Lakers can go 'small' and roll with all 3 of them together to close out the game.

    Kuzma is 6th man of the year this way playing 28MPG backing up all 3 frontcourt positions basically.
    Davis wins scoring title.
    LeBron wins MVP.
    Talent plays 20MPG wins most improved player of the year backing up Pope and sometimes LeBron and Shroedinger.
    Pope gets to call himself the starting SG for the championship Lakers for one more year.
    Shredder and Montrezl finally get to be starters again and go from bench players on shitty teams to All Stars and NBA champions on the greatest franchise on earth.
    The Carushow continues.

    I don’t want to get too far ahead of myself on THT. There’s a lot of B-ball to play before we see what he’s got.

    But so far, so good.

    Wait until we see what the THT/Caruso gold package nets the Lakers in Trade.

    I'm thinking Greek Freak + Durant + Harden

    Not quite Harden, but close. You can win with Giannis as a 2nd or 3rd banana

    Jerry West Allegedly Called Lakers a ‘S*** Show’ Prior to Last Season, NBA investigating allegations against Jerry West, LA Clippers involving Kawhi Leonard recruitment

    https://nba.nbcsports.com/2020/12/1...-kawhi-leonard-to-clippers-not-s-show-lakers/









    So West and the Clips are now in hot water? Lol Since the Clips don't have any draft picks to take, the league should just randomly veto one of their trades. Sounds fair. As soon as the Clips think they have a solid offer/trade for Paul George, Lou Will, or Pat Bev and they send it in to the league office....vetoed. One heavy fine and one well timed trade veto
