Idk. When you have that much talent, its hard not to think that they could turn it around in a second. If this losing trend continues through the All Star break then I can breathe a little easier.
I understand what you are saying but I'm saying that we need teams like Minnesota, Portland, Dallas, Sacramento to start winning more so that the Lakers pick will get into the top 10.
Imagine having two top 10 picks in the draft...
The reason why I don't worry about the Lakers is their schedule. They have a gruesome 6 game road trip to start the month of February with stops in BOS, BKN, MIN and MIA. They also play DET and CHA which they should win but DET has been surprising opponents all season long.
I see them going .500 for their remaining games which would certainly keep them out of the playoffs. Hell the last 5 games of Jan are @ MEM, vs UTA, vs OKC, vs NOH, and @ PHX. Out of those games I can see them winning 2 at most, which are vs UTA and @ PHX.
Agreed. Draft is more top heavy if anything. Package Gortat and the Lakers 1st (assuming we get it) and make a move to get two of the top prospects. Aggresive strategy, maybe wishful thinking given this inept front office.
People always say the draft is weak around this time of the year. Then come draft time, everyone says how its one of the best drafts ever and everything.
The perfect draft for the Phoenix Suns, IMO, would be Shabazz with our pick and Dario with the Lakers pick. Yes I know I haven't shut up about him in the past couple weeks but seeing the big picture it is a perfect fit for the Suns and for the players. IMO if we drafted those 2 our wings would be locked in for the next decade.
Numbers from Saric aren't really impressive but having 2 willing defenders with a wingspan of 7 ft each would be great for us. Additionally Shabazz is more of an attack the rim, hustle 100% and be a leader type player with the only area where he could use improvement is his jumpshot. Dario is more of a jump shooter and a very good, yet underrated, passer. If you see the areas where each of the players exceed you can see that those exact areas are the areas that you can say are a weakness of the other player.
Regardless of what happens I just hope the FO doesn't **** it up.
After seeing some of his interviews I'm definitely sold on him. He seems like a hard worker who has all his priorities straight and won't bring drama to the team. Basically he just wants to play ball.
The video shows how good of a passer he is.
