Harrell, Beverley, Lou Will, Zubac, harkless
Kuzma, Danny green, rondo (?), KCP, Bradley (?)
-Beverley is a good defender but bad on offense. He averages 9 points for his career (7.6 last year) on 41% shooting.
-Lou Will is going to be 33 going on his 15th season. Good offensive punch but not a great player. Liability on defense.
-Zubac was considered garbage on the Lakers. He's supposed to be good now? He should be a backup center.
-Harkless is a mediocre role player.
-Harrell is the only guy with potential to be an above average/great player out of this whole group.
What are we supposed to be impressed by?
The Lakers supporting cast is not great either but you can throw in Caruso, McGee and Howard. Pretty equal overall IMO.
Neither team has a clear 3rd star. Kuzma could emerge as 3rd star and Harrell could emerge as a 3rd star.
how are you using "role player" as an insult? each team has two stars, not run of the mill stars either, actual super stars. The rest of the team should be solid role players. Beverely, Lou, Harrell, Harkless all know how to play their roles and do it very well.
Rondo and Howard aren't good anymore. Was KCP ever good? Kuzma is ok but mad overrated.
? I did not use "role player" as an insult. What are you talking about?
I said "Harkless is a mediocre role player". Some role players are better than others. He is a mediocre one in my opinion.
I was responding to someone who claimed that the Clippers supporting cast is far better than the Lakers. So I am giving a brief critique of each player that was listed and asking what it is about these guys that is so much better than the Laker cast.
He said "such a massive difference in favour of the Clippers." Where is the "massive difference" is what I'm asking.
