Lakers Starting Line up 

Post#1 » by SlimShady83 » Sat Jul 6, 2019 8:48 am

Might be too early for this kind of thread?

C: Mcgee - heard that they're wanting to have Mcgee at centre?
PF: AD
SF: Bron ?
SG: Kuz or Green? - Is King Kuz still working on a jump shot and going to take the SG spot?
PG: It's a toss up between Rondo and Caruso I like both and feel Caruso deserves a shot, but are there any other PG's who we can get to start over these two?

Bench: Green, KCP, Rondo and who ever else

1) will King Kuzma be a starter as SG OR come off the bench?
2) who will start the PG spot - Caruso, Rondo or someone else?
3) How do we go against the clippers in a match up in the playoffs - I'm assuming already WCF clippers/Lakers
Apart from my mighty Lakers team I'm rooting for Houston, because I like Westbrook and think he deserves to win a chip - he is like Charles Barkley of this Era ... Great player but doesn't get to win :(
I hate Harden though, so what do I do? lol

AD
Kuz
Bron
Green
KCP

I think JAvale starting was a guess by her, but that's my bet so far.

- Green covers the best wing on D / On O hes the corner man and does a Fox role
- KCP chases the PG on D / He plays off ball and spots up like Fisher on O
- Bron plays a 1 on O and runs the team / On D he plays PF to rebound the ball and go
- Kuz plays the wing on O / on D he chases the weaker of the SF/SG on D to minimize Bron wear
- AD plays C on O to start games / On D he slides down when JAvale comes in and gets his mins

KCP-Green-Lebron-Kuzma-AD

I feel good about this lineup. Spread the floor, defensively versatile, athletic.

We need to tender an offer sheet to Tyus Jones before bringing back Rondo or some other relic.

I'm not really sold on KCP as being a starter, I mean the dude only seems to show up for half a season, but if he goes to his full potential then sure why not, but just not sold on him as starting maybe 6th man and have my boy King Kuz start ? :)

if that was the plan, the offer sheet route, you go for Delon Wright who is much better.

I would also say Morris isn't a relic. If you can figure out Morris and Cousins, I'll stick with Rondo since Cousins and AD both love him to death

That's a good point, Rondo will probably be kept if he wants to stay.

I also think people overlook how much learning from an actual 3 and D champion in Danny Green will help KCP. People want him to be that guy but this team has provided him with no one to actually teach him how to be that guy and fix mistakes hes made since hes been here. Fisher learned from Harper, it didn't just all click on his own at all for example.

They’d better re-sign Rondo. Then get Cousins.

Arza got 15 last year and 12.5 per the next two years, Danny is better than him.

AD will not start at C. That’s a given.

PG: KCP
SG: Green
SF: LeBron
PF: Davis
C: McGee

Davis will be the closing 5 and Kuzma will close most games. LeBron will play PG on O. It would be really nice to find a player who can score off ball screens however. KCP and Green are not guys you want dribbling the basketball too much.

If they could add..

- Morris
- Big (Cousins?)
- Iggy
- Korver

I’d be thrilled. And I’d hate the amount given to KCP less in that case.

we need morris bad.

we need another tough, versatile wing/big that can do a lil bit of everything if we want a healthy bron and davis in the playoffs.

I would love a true PG on this team. Someone besides lebron to initiate the offense. (That is not rondo). Don’t know much about Cook. Didn’t look great in the finals but that’s a small sample size
