Well, I guess that continues the summer of head cases

In all seriousness though, I've always liked Beasley even coming out of college and have been hoping for him to do well in the league.

These are your 2018-2019 Lakers:

James
Kuzma
Ingram
Hart
Ball

McGee
Wagner
Stephenson
Caldwell-Pope
Rondo

Beasley
Mykhailiuk
Zubac

Bonga
Deng

Caruso
2nd Two-Way player

The more and more I think about the Deng thing the odder it gets; it's akin to a lost media story or something - one of the great two-way players still can't play? They're not rebuilding anymore, and even then don't rebuilding teams still play a few veterans?

I watched the exact video I was looking for, read this incredibly sad article and still have no clue what is going on; like this is the type of guy you don't shut down. Z-Bo was a borderline focal point for the Kings last season; even 40-year old Carter had a role - Deng is still in his early 30s.

Deng and Rudy Gay should have made transition into 3 and D players just as Ariza. Stat driven league today are fully aware their numbers come at cost of efficiency.

Q, I like your starting line up but how do you think their defense will do?

There's no way they start that 5, but thats the best squad and they could possibly finish games with it. It's a lot like my favorite squad last year but with Randle instead of LeBron and like that team they would struggle against a lot of length. The few teams left with true centers. But then again it could just force the other team to go small as well. But LeBron would have a hard time matching up against all star centers like gobert or embiid

I don't belive that they are going to start LeBron at the C, more like a PF. He would have a hard time defending the paint.

Kuzma/McGee
Ingram/Beasley
LeBron/Stephenson
KCP/Hart
Ball/Rondo


Ingram played as a stretch 4, his lack of rebounding will be filled up by LeBron. They can switch on both forward spots anyway for matchups.
Unless it's against a traditional big matchup, then it's McGee and Kuzma at those spots or McGee and LeBron.

That's going to be one fun locker room.

But seriously, WTF is Magic doing? I guess he thinks Lebron can make chicken salad out of chicken sh*t, but this isn't the Eastern conference.

It's like a one year band aid to save the money for next summer. Unfortunately, no quality free agent will sign for only a year so we take what we can get

It's only one picture, but it certainly looks a little brighter and more saturated yellow than the gold from years past

I've come to accept these boys will be in their banana yellows more often than I care to see.
