The only problem making a Big 3 is keeping the band together.
We already have our Big 4 if you add Kuzma to the party.
There’s no doubt in my mind about this:
Lonzo, future all-star; Ingram, future all-star; Kuzma, future all-star; James, perennial all-star. Is being an all-star what merits a player as a ‘Big..’ member?
Get us Vucevic or Nurkic or better at the C, allow the kids another season to grow. I’m sure they’re dying to show the league what they are becoming.
If we get Leonard or Klay, we’d be stupid not to package one of Kuz or Ingram with the 4th pick and fillers for a top five Center.
Lonzo, Leonard, Ingram, James, Vucevic (AD/Zion)
Lonzo, Leonard, James, Kuzma, Nurkic (AD/Zion)
Lonzo, Klay, Ingram, James, Vucevic (AD/Zion)
Lonzo, Klay, James, Kuzma, Nurkic (AD/Zion)
Either lineup is a contender, assuming a healthy roster.
