Melo looks like he'll be our most reliable shooter.

Looney's only defense is shoving AD every play and it's highly effective because refs only call that on Dwight

Westbrook 3-9 against the Warriors B squad. Best shooting game as a Laker.

How long will it take for Laker fans to turn on him? 2-3 weeks?

Jordan frickin Poole. Dude looks like he can do anything out there. He has all the tools to be one of the best on-ball players in the league.

New Lakers guard name is, "Travelin Queen"... really? Amazing.

There's an LBJ joke in there somewhere.

warriors looking good preseason and theyre missing klay and wiseman. Plus their rookies might develop into bench players at the end of the season.

Lol Draymond is still a defensive monster/smart as hell (offensively+otherwise) and their 2nd best player, make no mistake. Poole is the 6th man they've been waiting for, though. And with OPJ, etc as actual floor spacers this season, they're going to be a problem. Still a thin team with a ton of injury concerns, but their ceiling is elite. Their locker room is going to be fantastic as well with Klay coming back, some young blood and vets like Iggy back in town. More than can be said for a lot of teams.

Moody might and I hope he does. Can't imagine Kuminga seeing the floor until he shows some positional awareness and/or ability to hit a shot. If Wiseman provides literally anything to the Warriors it will be a shocking positive. Second straight year of no off-season for the kid who didn't play college. Not promising for him.

That said, generally very encouraged by the team.

Theyre better without Wiseman TBH

Klay should be ready but its still a comeback from an Acl AND achilles......Klays always been durable but hes not a physical freak of nature like Kd so we dont know what to expect yet specially on defense and his movement offball

dumb. Imagine writing off a 19 y/o 7'1" guy who was coming off an injury and had only played a handful of games in college, because he struggled a little on a bad Warriors team. Yikes. :crazy:
