We dont need Leonard, how are you guys going to fix your face and say the Lakers dont stand a chance??? Correct me if I'm wrong what team went 73-9 and choked in the nba finals??? How are you going to be so disrespectful to the Lakers and that squad. If you truly had a high basketball IQ. Which I dont see based off your ignorance. What is it that you dont recall LBJ saying after the lose to GSW? He wanted to play with guys that had a high basketball IQ. That brought defense to the table that could create their own shot. LBJ and the Lakers front office did just that. They built depth with personnel that won championships and know how to win. Teach the young guys how to close out games. Not to forget Beasley that is a hot scorer coming off the bench to add extra weapons to a bench that was #3 in the nba a season ago. This laker team is going to body other teams. You heard from me 1st this is going to be the best team LBJ played on. Happy James that dont have to carry a team throughout the season. Is a very dangerous james come playoff time. This Laker team will be a team other teams will not want to play come playoff time. Furthermore lakers couldn't close those close games last season they didnt have the court leadership to show them how to get it done. The lakers are about to eat! They will be top 3 team come playoff time. Dont even fix your mouth to say Jazz,nuggets, or Houston after Houston lost key defensive personnel. When lakers add the best player in the world and more defense to the team. How you along with everyone else say such idiotic comments say they barely make the playoff?

This guys always talked about Kobe Bryant getting championships just because he had shack with him. Remember they hate Kobe Bryant and they love LeBron James so they’re making up all these conversations to favor LeBron James but the truth is if you put Kobe Bryant with this new Laker team I believe that they definitely would win a championship. And the truth is that LeBron James does not have that champion that Kobe Bryant has to win championships.

Lonzo, KCP, Ingram, LeBron, Kuzma will be on the court together. Then you still have Rondo, Lance, Beasley, McGee, and Hart. Two starting line ups.

It's more like Ball, Pope, Ingram, James, McGee - Rondo, Hart, Stephenson, Kuzma, Beasley. That's what the chart looks like I think, which is bull because Kuzma should be starting, he's the second best player on that team, imo.

Can't say this enough... They'll make it far if they let go of the LeBron system... And even then, they don't have enough for GSW.. Who's gonna stop GSW 3,4,5 spot..? Specially now with a 2nd emotional leader with the addition of Boogey Cousins Lol I do mm the have to mention the 1 and 2 cause Rondo is not going to outscore or shut down Curry.. Lance is not going to out perform Thompson.. LeBron might not win another ring if these crazy trades and signings keep happening...

I think the warriors are probably one of the most stacked teams ever created. However, Lebron James is still the best player in the NBA. Lebron can win and he also makes his team better. Lebron carried his team to the finals, and even though the East isnt as stacked as the west, it is only because the Warriors are in the west.

You have to give way to sports analysts like Stephen A. and Keller man and even others... but the fans are sometimes great students of the game and players over time! I consider myself as one of those gaining a lot of basketball knowledge about individual players and the logistics of the game over all...I cannot use all of the eloquent narratives and articulate "basketball" language as those guys mentioned above....Take what Keller man and Smith both were saying about the Lakers next season...the most of it all is sheer speculation built on a few stats and consistent trajectories of the specific players going forward....Not only the Lakers but Utah and the Rockets, The Thunder and Boston could all be awesome during the regular season...but in all sports players seems to take a rocket launcher to skills not shown that much and consistently UNTIL the post-season...All most commentators will be doing is categorizing players and whole teams going onto the play offs..all of their jargon will not all matter unless these specific players and these specific teams LAUNCH THAT POST SEASON ROCKET....and maintain it throughout....those who shot out of the gates ahead of most teams ..for some reason lose that fire around the beginning of tat post games...who would have thought the Jacksonville Jaguars and the Eagles would have gone as far as they did last year..the experts kept seeing some spurts here and there in these last- teams-standing....but no one saw it that clearer much earlier that these 2 teams and even others who went way farther than expected by the experts had seen earlier or expected...This is not to say their expertise does not count..but it really boils down to each team digging way down deep and being determined to be in the playoffs to win! As much as I expect the Warriors can get there again,,but it will be even tougher next season than this last season..and I am not an expert... is saying....if the team...the Warriors and each player on that team does not do different things and 'ADD TO THEIR ARSENAL ...DEFENSIVELY AND OFFENSIVELY....then their momentum may be tainted to go all the way..in fact I intend to share that info just for them to consider and I love the Warriors like no other team I had an affection for in recent times.....they are just that good..like the experts and the other teams realize as well....

Lebron James was worth 2 stars at one point. This last year cavs were 4th place in the east. I think lebron’s value is heightened depending on the talent around him and the lakers have no legit shooters and added rondo and stephenson who are both inefficient shooters that like to have the ball in their hands. Pair that with lonzo who has serious shooting problems and im not sure lebron is in a better position than he was in cleveland, at least RIGHT NOW. With the talent in the west, lebron may have to fight for a playoff spot if his only legit upside this year is a developing ingram. I’d take Love over Ingram right now... and that weak stuff doesnt fly in the west. The future is bright for LA but the right now is suspect.
