Apart from the Lonzo pick which they were basically forced to make, the lakers drafting since 2014 has been more than solid. They’ve hit on a lot of late firsts.


Svi, Wagner, Nance, Kuzma, Hart, Zubac, Clarkson are all players they’ve hit on with a draft pick of 25 or worse
Apart from Kuz and Ingram no one else is even half decent and just tradeable assets, but that's what you expect from late 20s picks anyways.

for where they were taken in the draft those players all significantly out performed their draft position, I would be surprised if many other teams could boast a success rate similar to that. The only one you can really argue otherwise is Wagner but I am of the opinion he is terribly under played.


Yes what they did with a lot of those players after drafting them wasn't great but then again they traded some for Davis which has worked out well so far.

I do the funny stuff thanks.

Only have missed the playoffs once too in those 12 years. Not 7 consecutive years.

Didn't need a generational talent like lebron or AD together to make playoffs as we just drafted well unlike the lakers and not relying on being a massive market to attract talent.
You’re in the East. Hardly a big task to make the playoffs.

Anyone going to watch any of the 2k Tournament?
I reckon Booker will win it, i know he is a big gamer.
All Star.

Season surely is done

There having talks about how there going to settle wages for the season rather than how they can finish the season

Given how bad the US is, this won’t subside until September-October at the latest and there not gonna try and compete with the NFL

Yeah i think with the thousands if predicted deaths to occur over the next couple of months in the US its a PR disaster for the NBA if they try to rush the players back and finish the season. A lot of NBA fans will be in survival mode either physically or financially. Not to mention that the Finals are normally played in June and by that stage the US could be right at the peak of this thing.

The NBA players have been quiet on this I think. Probably all quite accepting and just enjoying life at home. Playing 2k.

The nba I feel seems to be the community leading sport league in America. I get the impression that the season. Won’t recommence and they won’t be whoa is me.

I guess you don't want to talk about his other games from the series...

Shaq was a monster. Averaging 38/17, with 3 blocks on 61% shooting.
