Lakers have a GM

Post Author: andrei » Sun Dec 01, 2019 2:26 pm

Its been downhill for the Lakers ever since the legendary GM Jestor retired. With no other options, the Lakers turned to unsigned free agent GM Andrei who has been out of GMship since moving on from his long time position with the Memphis Grizzlies.
I think the team is certainly better than its record suggests. Bagley needs to be unleashed and become a 25/12 beast we all know he should be. He is the centre of the Lakers galaxy and everything else spins around him. If somebody is not working out, they're gone - no conversation there. I do feel our trio of Bagley, Diallo and Vonleh is a good combination upfront. So I'm excited to see what we can do there.

At guard, its Payne and Russell this year. Ever since he entered CSL draft, I considered DeAngelo a Goran Dragic type of a player. Dragic in his prime was All-Star starter type of a player and I think Russell can be in the same conversation. Payne is steady on offense and All-CSL on defense - we're very lucky to have him here in LA.
Key thing to address: when your best SF is Bruno Caboclo, you have a problem. Bruno has established himself as a decent scorer off the bench, but not a starter in CSL. We have some rookies with potential but nobody who deserves to start regularly in CSL. We need to address this gap in the offseason. Perhaps through the draft.

On a personal note: One lazy day in August I decided to give NFL a try - I've been hooked ever since. Its so good, so very very good. I had to pick a team to follow and figured, since I work for Microsoft and fly to Seattle a few times a year.... go Seahawks!!!
So what do you expect when you draft Grabby McHolderson to play your right tackle?

I didn't like the Musa trade Tim made before he left, but this team has a good chance to improve a lot in this year's draft, holding picks from two teams that currently have bottom 7 records is huge. Not only are the top dogs terrific this year, but the consolation prizes if the lottery screws you are also very good.

Good to see you back in business! Bagley and whatever you get with the picks should be a good foundation. Would love to see you have doncic! Gonna be interesting to see if you build a defensive powerhouse again.

Ps: comparing DLo to prime Dragic feels insulting though :P!

The Lakers are loaded, and are in a great position to skyrocket their team into competitiveness come 2-4 seasons from now. I'm excited to see what a veteran GM like Andrei can do.

Great to see the team in the hands of someone who won't blow up the roster and future assets I've spent the last few years putting together. I think you'll have a lot of fun with this outfit.

Good to have you back Andrei.

The battle of LA is gonna get really interesting over the next few seasons. Especially now since the Musa trade.

You may be right about Dragic but I think the talent is there. Not sure about efficiency but their ratings are similar along with size
So what do you expect when you draft Grabby McHolderson to play your right tackle?

I think this roster has a chance to be great depending on how this draft rolls out. Bagley is a stud already and anything else you add to it will be great.
