    Steven A Smith literally said a week ago that the Lakers should trade their entire roster for AD... What a hypocrite.

    Media loves to give Kuzma all the credit. Went to the game last night and Lonzo was easily the most important player on the court despite scoring only 5 points. Lonzo is the real gem the lakers have and the media refuses to give him credit.

    Media stay disrespecting Lonzo that man affects the game without being a scorer. Literally runs the offense so everyone can get easy shots and he is a great defender. Once he develops into an efficient offensive player he will be one the best two way players in the game. It would be a mistake trading him.

    Do people even watch Lonzo? He's not bad, like he's actually not bad at all. He just is pretty inefficient right now and his scoring isn't all there. I have no clue why people keep hating him, if you actually watch him he's a good PG. This is coming from a non Lakers fan aswell

    I wasn't sure about Kuz at first but after watching the games and him play it's very clear to me that he's gonna be an All Star soon and he's easily their second best player. To call him a poor mans Tatum is disrespectful. Kuz can ball and with guys like Bron and Magic and Kobe in his ear on a daily basis... I think the sky is the limit for him.

    ESPN really needs to stop pushing this AD to the lakers narrative down our throats..that’s all they’re talking about. Kuzma had a great game let’s talk about his performance and what it shows about his game & La’s future ..not debate whether they should trade him now because his value increased..I should’ve expected this..Their just going to speak it into existence.
