Hard to judge the Zu vs Thomas thing. With so limited minutes for either. I agree Zu seemed to regress, but he did show he could be effective if he tries, in summer league last year.

Thomas I've no idea. Barely saw him play. Seemed promising, but I guess the team must know better in this case. Plus they got Wagner, who can shoot. Makes me think they now plan to keep Wagner rather than dangle him as trade bait? So 2 white guys playing center...3 if you count Lopez, sorta lol. That's unusual is all I'm sayin'. But fine with me Wink IF Randle is back, he spends some time at the 5 as well I assume.

Yeah I know, but isn't the meniscus the MCL? Reports say MCL, which I thought was the meniscus.

No. It's the medial collateral ligament. I shared this. Your meniscus are cartilage.

Lopez isn't white.

It's not bad if he chooses to get it repaired but if he takes the route of removing it like D-Wade did in college, then the results will not be good down the line as he gets older. I'm quite sure he's getting it repaired.

You mean ACL ?

Lol...Glad you figured it out. With regards to MCL, I'd rather injure that than my ACL. The ACL holds everything together.

There is a MCL ligament as well. ACL crosses in the front of the knee and MCL is located on the inner side of your knee.

Correct. It can be painful, but tearing your ligament is a much bigger deal!

This has been haunting to me since the rumors. Yo think like me Randy. We can't lose this young core. We just have to he patient and get Kawai next year when he's a free agent. I really really like Ingram, Kuzma, Ball, and for sure Josh Hart. I'm so on the fence rooting for LeBron because I cheer for him to lose every year. But what can you do? $hit

So apparently he won't need surgery at all.

Guessing Randle is gone now. The continuation of breaking up what we have built will continue.

Well, we're spending all of our cap now. Guessing Randle will walk for nothing.

We've signed KCP and Lance Stephenson. Guessing that means Hart will be included in a trade for Kawhi. I'm guessing at least Hart & Ingram if not Kuzma too. So our entire young core will all be gone, except Ball, for the sake of signing a 34 year old enemy and making him happy. Wow! Saddest day in Lakers history.

The Lakers can always match whatever offer is given to Julius Randle because he is a restricted free agent.

Starting lineup:

Ball

Stephenson / KCP

James / Ingram / Deng

Kuzma

Better to lure Leonard to the Lakers without giving up too much of the young core talent in a trade with SA. I will be very disappointed if the Lakers trade Ingram especially.
