One man’s trash is another man’s treasure... Boogie looks determined as hell... The entire Lakers roster is filled with players looking for redemption... I ain’t no Nostradamus but winning a chip this upcoming season is a real possibility...

If Cousins gets in shape enough and stays in shape enough only to match his output of last year, I’m psyched about this signing.

He’s a handful down low to say the least, and can’t be left open for the three. When we face Jokic, Nurkic, Embiid, Vucevic, Gobert, we’ll be happy to have him,

can't figure GSW letting him go. otherwise, the potential of what he might bring is off the charts.

He’s a bit of a head case, that’s probably why. AD, LBJ, Dudley and Rondo will handle his crazy.

Everything I've heard over the years is that he's a good teammate. Pretty sure he was well liked with team USA.

We got a steal with this guy. It's win win, at his very worst he's still a better player Zubac. I love Zubac and hope he continues to grow as a player, but he was trash and couldn't even play at an NBA playoff intensity. Zubac couldn't even get onto the floor. At Boogie's absolute worst he's a legit NBA rotation guy. But I get the feeling Boogie is gonna have his bounce back year with how slim and healthy he looks.

Man, I'm really excited to see what Boogie can do this year. I don't think its outside the realm of possibility that he can be to AD/Bron what KLove was to Kyrie/Bron or what Bosh was to Bron/Wade.

Sure, AD and LBJ are superstars but we can very well have a big three with Cousins. Or with Kuz or Green being the third member. Hell, let’s just call it our big five and be done.

He'll be fine, he was no problem with his past two teams and you guys need to look at the Sacramento Kings front office, for his oast issues. A team with no direction and they fired the only coach there that had positive results from him.

I think him being here with Kidd, James, Davis and Rondo is only gonna be a plus...

This is the best team for him.

Been a believer of Cousins' come back since we signed him. I really feel like Cousins is our X factor for this team. Add Kuz to step up production at a very high rate, I don't see the Flippers beating us in a 7 game series.

Word was he was going to be too expensive, but injuries put a halt on that plan. Also heard that last year the Lakers were his preferred destination, but we didn’t even make an offer.

Kuzma and Boogie could form a decent PR combo on the second unit. Buy some minutes for Bron and AD. Two shooters in the corners. Rondo running the show.

Will be looking forward to watching those 2 match up.
Zu's move across the hall makes me want to see these guys go at it.

just watched this.

My guess is that the weight loss will allow him to move better now and also take some of the stress load off of that injury.
Hope he doesn't over exert his limits and reinjure it.

Bodyguard maybe... But he left his ass behind to die, pretty quick too. Last think Boogie felt was AD's big ass shoe on his back.

Have to keep in mind that some of these grades are attributed to how GSW utilized him. I expect several of these grades to flip during his Laker tenure.
