Get the feeling a Utah package, where we get Conley/PatBev/Bojan, helps the most to maximise what we're looking for out of LW4

Put him off the bench (and start Conley/Reaves I guess), and you have a competent offensive duo, with LW4 providing athleticism and PatBev providing nagging defense

The more I think about this, we jumped the gun, I’d rather give the tpMLE to help PatBev get a buyout and sign with us, same $, same 1 yr, save THT/Nunn move for shooters

The Kamenetzky Brothers get a scouting report on Lonnie Walker from their counterpart with the Spurs. There is good and bad.

I watched that show and there wasn't much good they said about him. He seems to be a guy that is very inconsistent. If that happens here in LA the pitch forks will be out in no time. Definitely a huge gamble by the Lakers too bad Monk could not stay.

Out of all the signings, this one I strongly disagreed with.

Our biggest option for the one position we didn't need more of! And not a shooter either???!

There were much better options out there. I'm not a Klutch conspiracy theorist, but it really reeks Klutch favor.

Should've signed Jalen Smith.

Not sure what everyone has against this guy yeah he’s not that lengthy and tall guy we could have essentially signed for the TMLE but I think he’s a better option then THT and I can see him having a better season then Nunn if we decide to keep him.

His IQ and defense is way better then Monk’s I think people just like to cry about anything.

I really liked his hang time on that reverse layup in the paint. Great body control. He can draw so many fouls that way. He has a handle. He can get into the paint. He can finish. He can shoot from the wing 3.

I would have liked to see his mid-range game, post ups, but I have seen it in his highlights.

I think it’s nice to have hope and being optimistic is fine, but being honest about who he is currently as a player isn’t “crying”. If he has a year like Monk’s it’ll be the best of his career and he will be shooting the ball in a way he never has before. It’s fine to hope for it, just not sure you should be expecting it. We are all rooting for him to succeed, but gassing him up over pickup game highlights isn’t very productive.

The emboldened is the reason why everyone is against this guy. Personally, I don't know much about him.

You're right, critiquing his game isn't crying.
But can you explain how this is gassing him up?

Isaiah Thomas had a great career before his injury issues, think of him as a Thomas with less offensive capabilities but with better defense and a little bit taller and more athletic.

I think the intent of posting it was to extrapolate something, no? And extrapolating much of anything from a pickup game is pretty silly. We have 4 seasons of real games to look at.

As a fan of the team, I like to see what guys are up to.
Go look at the lebron thread when he was in the Drew. It was just fun talk about what our guy was doing.

If you don't like the clips, then don't click and don't comment.

It’s always fun watching shootaround before a game. Guys who aren’t considered shooters will shoot like 90%.
