Giants really over achieved this year... Them losing Belt at the end of the season was huge loss for them.

This team honestly needs two more preseason games together before they're ready for the regular season. Too bad there's 6 preseason games and not 8.

Still we looked better offensively, and our defense was actually good in spurts. We held the Kings to just 40% shooting - that's great.

Yea. Really want them to hammer the Suns. If AD has a big game lakers will get that one.

I do think AD has gotten complacent after winning that ring. It's like he has no fire and regressed, just moping around waiting for others to get him easy shots. His best year was 2020 as a Laker, but man he was unstoppable when he played for the Pelicans. He looks like he only wants that big paycheck now. I hate to say this but he won't be a Laker long if that's how he thinks.

It was great to see Bron and Westbrook effortlessly getting easy baskets for the bigs pretty much anytime they wanted.

The team defense will take the longest to come along since they are far from being on the same page throughout any game but I seen some very promising stretches in a few of the pre-season games and hopefully it will only improve as the season goes as it should.. I think we can still win 6-8 of the first 9 due to a very favorable schedule and allow us to get that chemistry rising and figuring everyone out.

Surprisingly, i'm a bit more worried about AD then Westbrook at this very, veryyy early stage. We need him to be consistent again and at least be hitting the majority of the absolute gimmes when our playmakers basically spoon feed him. I don't expect him to be lethal from the perimeter consistently but at least be a bit more consistent defensively and try to get some easier shots at times. He had guards manning him up at times which just simply can't happen. He was the only guy in our big 3 that looked fully complacent pretty much all game. AD is the one in the middle of his prime so this shouldn't be happening but we'll see how things shake out. I wanna see that aggressive bubble AD at some point this season.

HBK is the real deal! I was hesitant all pre-season but he just simply has the bbiq, great natural instincts and just enough dog in him to have a bright career as a possible rock solid role player if things keep maturing the way they're starting out. He has a little playmaking as well which was great to see this early in his career already.

As much as I love the offense from Melo he should absolutely not start outside of maybe some rest management games because it seemed like anytime he'd drill a shot or two he'd make just as many defensive mistakes. He also missed a WIDE OPEN Dwight under the basket screaming at him 3 feet away to only continue to iso and take a contested jumper instead. He did make it tbf but it was a very poor decision. I was hoping he'd at least put some more effort on the defensive end but not seeing it thus far.
