Lebron
Danny Green
Kuzma
AD
Boogie
its that simple
rondo running second unit
bradley-green-KCP get about even playing time
we are going to have a good gaurd competition and it will likely push players like KCP-bradley-and quin cook to improve drastically
but look for Kuzma to be candidate most improved player

Why do you think Kuz can score on PG13 or can defend him? Or bojan bogdanovic, or literally 90% of small forwards?

I think it'll look something like this until we pickup an upgrade or two from the buyout market.

PG...Lebron (32)...Cook (12)...Rondo (8)
SG...Bradley (30)...Daniels (12)
SF...Green (30)...KCP (12)
PF...Davis (34)...Kuzma (28)
C...Cousins (26)...McGee (16)
My Dream Team
PG...Magic Johnson...Oscar Robertson
SG...Michael Jordan...Kobe Bryant
SF...Larry Bird...LeBron James
PF...Tim Duncan...Karl Malone
C...Kareem Abdul-Jabbar...Bill Russell

Except his positioning, lateral movement and concept of team defense is non-existent and he is nowhere quick enough to guard most small forwards. Heck, even LBJ gets blown by them, now imagine kuz who is not as athletic as 35yrs old lebron is. He is a good scorer but he is a power forward in todays game. If it were 1980 he couldve been a small forward just like jmaes worthy was a s forward. But today? Whoooo boy do i have news for you. 6'5/6'6/6'7 guys are small forwards and even power forwards and quick enough to stay in front of skinny kuz. Kawhi even 10-15 yrs ago is a shooting guard but today he's a sf. Cmon man

Because Kuzma ain't better than Bron and AD. Those two would probably play at both starting forward positions and I don't like the idea of Kuz playing the starting SG position. Unless AD starts at C or Bron plays PG then you open up a starting forward slot for Kuz. Personally, I'd prefer that Bron and AD starts with the forward positions as AD prefers to play PF and I would like to give a Cousins/Davis front court combo again (they did well in the Pels) and while the idea of Bron playing as PG would be intriguing, I am not comfortable on how we wolud play D against quick opposing guards.

Kuz coming off the bench is still a good idea as we know he could score and he could get a lot of opportunities playing as the primary scorer with the second unit.

I think it's time to call Lamar and tell Kuz what it's like to be with a Kardashan.

There are maybe 4-5 teams against which he would be overmatched at SF - one of the shallowest positions in the league.

The bigger problem is that in the proposed lineup - (Lebron/Green/Kuz/AD/DMC ) he would need to match up defensively with either the opposing PG, or their better wing. Both of those are problems.

On offense, he would be defended by the other team's weaker wing (the stronger one would be on Lebron). That would be a matchup we'd win more often than not.

Lamar won two titles, a gold medal, and sixth man of the year with Khloe

Being traded away from the lakers broke him, whereas the lakers tried and did keep Kuz

Bradley
Green
Lebron
Davis
Mcgee (or Boogie if he shows he can be productive)

Bradley brings up the ball and passes to Lebron (insert fresh Prince clip) who initiates offense.

Thought just struck me... If Kuz goes back to being a great spot up jump shooter, we may have one of the most talented Triangle lineup ever...
LeBron-Kuz-AD, with Bradley or KCP as Fish, and a platoon of 5th players depending on the other team's approach... Go Huge and have Cousins or McGee in there under the basket... Or go smaller and add another shooter.

F-it... Let's shit-can this Vogel experiment, get Rambis and Phil in here...

Davis should play c and kuzma start at pf... but it won’t happen
Warspite:

Prince + filler for Kobe Bryant
To be honest the way Prince has played and with Kobes injury/age/mileage Im not sure I would do that deal either. Still Prince is more important and he wins the head to head battles with Kobe.

I hear that is just a rumor, they were a yacht party on the 4th and struck up a conversation. That’s all

Ya'll really need Korver.

Bradley*/Caruso/Rondo
Green/Korver/Cook
Lebron/KCP/Daniels
Kuzma/Dudley
AD/Cousins/Mcgee

* - If he can still play above average defense against PGs and shoot 37%+ from 3pt.
