Yeah, no one is touching the Lakers this season

I'm happy with Baynes and FVV. Sad to see Gasol and Ibaka move on, the former not with much current value but the latter was still playing quite well

Lakers were doing so well and then they signed Marc Gasol lmao. Still, one bad signing isn't too bad.

I haven't seen the Bulls play in for ever, but thinking about those big stadiums without crowds is kinda yikes... The bubble had that novelty effect and playoff basketball, but regular season games without crowds is gonna get old real soon.

What the hell is wrong with Gasol lol.

A top 5 post-passer who's still an elite post-defender is a great pick-up for certain match-ups. We need that.

We replaced Howard and McGee who basically who couldn't be fielded in certain series because they couldn't shoot. Now we've got someone who can.

Last thing we need is another wing defender or ball handler and an athletic C

Gasol is a great add, certainly an improvement.

Plays D, shoots the 3, has a brain.

Uh guys, Gasol is finished.

Yes he has the IQ and passing and all that he is but man is always gassed out now since he is tubby and makes more errors than ever.

Im failing to see how this move is being hyped up he is washed up and would be good off the bench at best.

He's going to be a 15-20 mpg starter. And he's perfect for exactly that. He fits great with a starting line-up of LeBron, AD, KCP and Wes.

I don't see how he's finished. He wasn't in shape after a long time off, which showed in the bubble. Younger guys had same problems.

His skills and IQ are still there and he's never been the most athletic dude. If he get's in shape he can become a great addition.

Mole seems to be abandoning us, he's more washed up than Gasol, if he does we need a 10th player.

Apparently Gasol was based on almost any advanced metric the best defender on the raptors last year.

The point about being able to get into shape is a good point as he is quite a liability as it stands but did not exactly look in shape during the Playoffs for Raptors. Nothing else has ebbed off as with time he has grown into an even smarter player.

With limited minutes he can be used brilliantly.



@Vibe yes Im quite considering that my friend. Mole smh

I'm on the "Gasol is washed up" boat. He was already looking considerably worse last season compared to the Raps' championship winning season. Having a center who can hit open threes is great, but that's the only way he scores now and I think teams will be targeting him on defense.


Pelicans got Steven Adams. A likable player, but doesn't compliment Zion and Ingram very well.

I loathe the line of thinking that if a big can't shoot then he's not a fit with Zion. Everything else Adams does fits GREAT with Zion. Interior D, defensive rebounding, screen setting in the P&R, outlet and half-court passing. Not to mention the leadership and toughness aspect.

I copied this from a Pelicans reporter, but it's basically how i feel. People are absolutely obsessed with Zion being played with a Stretch 5 that they refuse to see it from any other POV.

Lakers just won a championship with a front court of AD, Lebron and Howard so can we stop this obsession with shooting 3s.

It's far from the only way to achieve reliable spacing.

He averaged 12/6/4 before the bubble and was trending upwards before an injury.

His only question mark is fitness and health. If he's fit he'll fit in no problem. You need to be in great shape when you're in the lower end of athleticism in the league. You can't be lazy like Dwight Howard and still play constantly.

Our Front Court when it mattered was more like LeBron, AD and Morris. And everyone in that lineup can shoot. And Davis was clearly better with Morris. Those lineups had a +20 net rtg throughout the playoffs.

You need different kinds of Centers next to your superstars. Howard was mainly good for the Denver series.

We couldn't even play him against a team like Houston.

I like the Adams pickup, but would want a stretch option at the 5. Maybe Deadmon or something, just to go give Zion more space to operate.

Also, every single player can fit wit Ingram. I have no issues there.

Obviously long term you need options, i don't disagree.

I'm just sick and tired of the such limited views on how we can build around Zion.

Nobody considers defence when considering team building and arguably it's more important at this point of the teams development.

Gasol is still a serviceable role player. He's a decent pick up. He's not a great one, as he is washed, but even a washed Gasol is decent in limited minutes. I would have liked to see him on the Bucks, for example.
