It is Worst defender in the league. The lakers have won 12 of their last 16 games  with Brandon Ingram playing point guard. Ingram is averaging a whopping 19 ppg 6.5 assists and 4.8 rebounds while leading the Lakers to four consecutive victories.  They also have ball and hart as point guards. IT as another PG will disrupt their momentum they got with Ingram and when ball returns everything will be havoc. Then we will have lavar say something about there needing to be 1 point guard leader not 3

i think he said recently hes 75%

I feel like he will never be 100%. Someone on here or some other site said he needs to get the surgery to be 100%

If he was truly 75% he wouldnt be good enough for Rucker Park.

If he can approximate any level of play hes ever shown, hell help.

Glad to see Ingram doing well.  He was my favorite in that draft.  Sucks that he's a Laker.

Labrum won't repair itself.

Without surgery he will deal with pain and inflammation there for the rest of his career

No, he won't.

He'll be able to score if healthy. He can ball hog in LA, which is ok b/c Lonzo is a hot potato pg.

IT is washed up. I don't expect we'll ever see last year's version of him again.

Dr. Bryan Kelly is one of the most well-respected hip specialists in the world. He literally treats hundreds of labral tears a year for athletes at all levels. If he says Isaiah doesn't need surgery, I don't see why we should disregard that for an internet diagnosis.
Danny Ainge got fleeced.

IT is lighting it up tonight for Lakers. I actually hope he returns to form and proves everyone wrong- especially Lebron.

We can definitely forget about getting that pick anyway. In fact, as of now, that was the one thing Danny  might have been wrong about- which pick to give as it appears Nets are heading for bottom 3 again. Here is hoping Kings stink next year and we get 2nd in 19.

Lets hope Lebron does not choose Lakers though as IT will be chased from a new home a second time as a reault of the almighty. If Lebron chhoses somewhere else, I expect him to stay in LA.

IT has a role on this Lakers team unlike being LeBron's personal spot up shooter.

IT will help this team .  They are  youngand play faster , no deliberate iso ball .

IT might have blended better with the new Cavs roster with some young legs that are eager to play a little dfense.
he looks way happier...better body language.

Lebron is a Richard , glade IT escaped .

IT looked pretty good last night. would be pretty funny if IT regains his form and the Cavs traded away a guy who could get his own shot and win you a game if lebron struggles for a bunch of role players.

He plays for the Lakers.  You want him to return to form and play well?   I don't get it.  It sounds like you despise Lebron more than you despise the Lakers.   That perspective surprises me.  It isn't just about the pick (which if the Lakers should freefall is not out of the question)... it is the Lakers. 
IT is a very wealthy young man who has already proven himself a world class basketball player -- he is now a Laker and as such I hope that he does not help the team's chemistry at all.  And of course I agree that I don't want LBJ in purple and gold, but this is what makes the Lakers GM job the easiest in sports -- tank, get some young assets, free up cap space and select your superstars.  Spin and repeat.
