I keep on thinking about a Rondo comparison to Ball because they are both elite passers and rebounders. Rondo was a good defender out of the gate though and Ball is not (nor would you expect most rookies to be). However, I thought that Ball's shooting would be better. So far he's been brutal with a 41% TS% through 3 games (Rondo's career TS% is 50%). Not a reliable sample obviously, but Ball could easily end up as JAG. Probably will win ROY though given the Laker hype machine and a lot of empty triple doubles, but I'm glad we have Tatum given how he and Fultz have looked so far.
This Lakers start is about as good as I could have hoped for (absent an 0-3 start, of course). They gave up 130 points to freakin' Phoenix and almost managed to lose that game. If they have to score 132 to win every game this year, it's going to be a long season for them.As that Dutch comedian said, "We totally understand it's going to be Phoenix at the bottom. But can we just say, "the Lakers at second-worst."Mike
Lakers lose and nets win. I imagine danny had a good day and celebrated with chipotleOne step closer to this
The LAL play the Wizards at home. The line is Wiz -5. They should have a field day with open shots and that spells doom for a perimeter defense challenged team. Wiz by 12!I'm still upset the Nets blew last nights game by giving up like 38 points in final quarter and just completely blowing it in the last minuter. That 3 pointer by Gordon is going to haunt me for another day or so.Back to the Fakers.....they got Toronto next and then a trip to Utah...both losses ....until they Detroit at home, which is a winnable game.
Ingram and Oubre looked like twins on the court
Wizards better not screw this otherwise, perfect day for us.
