Beginning to think Kuz should get start over BI next game.

If Brandon did not come in with all of the hype, he would be nearly invisible during the pre-season. I notice that he's never learned to ball fake and is trying to beat defenders off the dribble. This is terrible coaching when a small change such as delaying putting the ball on the court could dramatically improve his effectiveness. For now, his idea of aggression is lowering his shoulder and driving forcefully to the hoop, and it's not working too well. You'd think Magic would know better given that his game was based almost entirely on deceiving defenders with ball fakes and passes.

Ingram has been trying way too hard this preseason. It’s like he went to the Jordan Clarkson school of basketball with the way he’s been forcing things....

Seems like BI's mojo left him after Magic made him sit out the Summer League. Kuz just has that chip on his shoulder and he knows he can ball.

Yeah there's been elevated expectations, so he might be pressing a bit. I think he should be using his size to his advantage by posting up more often and not force the issue as much.

He played mighty well in the summer league where he went down unfortunately. However he was not forcing it like you mentioned.

Good confidence for then bench group which played well. Nice to see the D step up a notch for a change as well.

Don't think it's so much coaching as it is him gaining confidence in his jumper , he starts out games taking jumpers and when they don't fall, he goes to driving to basket, no matter what. Also still needs to get stronger. But if Kuz continues to develop, don't exactly see BI as untouchable anymore. Lol

Magic setting him up like Dlo for trade when he doesn't live up to expectations. Lmao !!!

I think after we signed two bums last year we might have just signed two more this year. Enter KCP and Ennis. Lmao!

Ennis’ style is more deliberate and measured and essentially suited for half court sets. In this high uptempo offense which Luke is trying to install, he would end up being the odd duck as a back up PG. He made several boneheaded plays last night and was horrendous on both ends. I would rather have Caruso over Ennis. Wish Ennis was on the two way contract and not Caruso. Pink Panther is a fkn beast on D and has this uncanny knack of making some sensible plays in clutch situations. He has not let me down so far.

KCP looks like he’s a younger version of Deng...Deng in his current form that is...lol. He looks lost on both ends of the floor. I noticed several blown assignments on D and his shooting reminds me of Reggie Evans trying to make a jumper from point blank and still missing.

Lmao, but agree about KCP, there's a reason that Detroit let him walk. As far as Caruso like what I've seen, but it's also just preseason. Everyone thought Huertas was going to be good after preseason too. Though Caruso is definitely looking better than Huertas.

I'd love to see a lineup with Kuz taking Randle's place.

What about KCP? I thought we would see something better from him. It's a good thing he's on a one year deal. Maybe they could trade him and Randle in a sweet package deal!

KCP needs to stick to his strength of being a lock down defender.

The Lakers don't seem to have any idea what to do with the '2' since Kobe's decline and departure. Why bring in KCP when there's Clarkson and Hart and others who can fill the spot like Kuzma and Ingram if needed, especially for $18M. He got lucky. It was a timing thing. He has been shooting reasonably well and I think we'll see him step up his defense. The Lakers looked good in general yesterday with their team defense, including Randle and Clarkson which is a good sign. They are still terrible against perimeter style offenses though.

They signed him because him and LBJ share an agent, and he took 1 year deal. Imo

It’s just pre season...it’s just summer league..lol.

Although Huertas was a rookie in the NBA, he was a veteran at 35 and his game had already taken shape(minus D of course..lol). Caruso is almost a decade and half younger. He is still in his formative years. So that gives me some hope, he would not fizzle out like Huertas. All we can do is hope he doesn’t go the Huertas way.

So, James is gonna come to the Lakers because his agent is gonna tell him that the Lakers are good guys? Let's spend $18M for some potential hearsay or some more Magic-al meddling?

Lol, Not saying they signed him just because of James, but it didn't hurt that they have same agent.

Read somewhere that their opening one of LBJ's pizza places in staples, if they already haven't.
