    other thread title suggestions are welcome. I was going to go with this but thought better of it:

    LA Lakers - There's no Broadway in Showtime

  8. I didn't understand the Bogut signing when we already have 3 centers and probably will play a lot of lineups with Randle/Nace at the 5

    overheard an older guy on the driving range describing Lonzo as a mix between Pistol Pete and Magic Johnson, so needless to say the expectations out here are very realistic and tempered at the moment

    Doesn't hurt to have some adults in the room. Bogut has been around a lot and can fill a role.

    Haven’t watched the Lake Show since Kobe retired. Hopefully they can get it turned around. Any hope for this season?

    nobody is thinking playoffs but the hope is the young guys gel together, Ingram takes a big step forward, KCP and Bogut prove decent enough 1 year stop-gaps, and the team looks appealing enough to the free agents-to-be. There won't be any tanking going on this season.

    If Julius Randle was a standout on defense then it's not going to be a good year for the Laker defense

    great hire by all accounts, there's no excuse why big market teams shouldn't be investing big money and time into analytics

    Game week. Excited to see future Hall of Famers Lonzo Ball and Kyle Kuzma battle it out for rookie of the year.

    Is winning 60 games unrealistic?

    Some experts believe so.

    I'd personally go with 55 wins.

    Not an NBA fan but almost a triple double in his second game seems like a good thing, no?

    These last 2-3 min of this game is the first time I’ve watched the NBA in about two years so I don’t know anything. I was mostly being sarcastic because after yesterday all I’ve read is how much he sucks.
