    NBA's Best Young Core 2016-2017 FINAL EDITION

    So we made it through the season...
    MY only regret this season is that the Lakers didn't start their young guys day 1.
    Deng, Young and Mozgov held back the early development of Ingram and Zubac...
    But let me get back to my original argument.
    We are the best young core in the NBA...
    Why?...because we are the deepest.
    Everybody was jumping on that Minny band wagon with their new coach...
    Not sure what the excuse is now...Lavine got hurt?...
    They weren't winning with him...The HC sucks again? lol...
    KAT is a man on an Island...The rest of them boys are low bball IQ players...
    Only interested in scoring the ball...or flashy dunks.. nothing else to offer... They have zero depth on the bench..
    Who else Philly?
    Let's chat about this now that the season is about to end...
    Lakers best young core in the NBA...

    No they aren't. You wanna talk about low IQ players and Russell is on your team and Ingram was extremely unimpressive. Even with all the injuries I'd take Philly over the Lakers because they at least have a guy that's great when he plays. I also would still take Minny over the Lakers because KAT is better than any two players the Lakers have put together. Nice thread though troll.

    Eh, not that impressive? They have a couple solid young guys. Someone like Ingram had a poor rookie season, especially for the MPG he played. What are we meaning by young? under 26? just so I have some specification.

    Celtics have a good young core also. Brown (20) Smart (23) Rozier (23) Not to mention Yabusele, Nader and Zizic all playing elsewhere at the moment. All under 23. Plus, a top 4 pick this year coming.

    Most of the roster is pretty young Bradley/Crowder(26) KO 25

    Embiid/Saric/Simmons/TLC/Covington.... Without even the fact that we might get 2 top 5 picks this year or next year.... Its not close

    Sixers
    Wolves




    Everyone else.... I am not including the celtics because i figured this was just young out of playoff teams. I love ingram even if he had a terrible season... Russ worries me because he plays 0 defense... Its that bad. They need their pick this year esp with their 2 horrible contracts. I think the lakers have more young talent over a team like the knicks but the knicks have porz whom is better than everyone they have.

    Ingram didnt have a poor rookie season. He had a poor half a season and a pretty decent other half.

    The Celtics have to be #1 because they have Avery Bradley, Jae Crowder, Marcus Smart, Jaylen Brown, Terry Rozier and Kelly Olynyk all 26 and younger, and they have likely the #1 overall pick this year and the Nets 1st Round pick in 2019. Not to mention they have Isiaih Thomas and Al Horford.

    If the 76ers get the Lakers pick, if Simmons is as good as advertised, if Embiid can stay healthy. Just too many ifs for me to trust them.

    Ingram had a bad Rookie season?...what happened to that stud Kris Dunn?????
    Let me lay this out in more detail...
    While everybody is looking for the nexrt big 3 ala Miami...The Lakers are building depth ala Golden State..
    1.Ingram
    2.Russell
    3.Clarkson
    4. Randle
    5. Zubac
    6. Nance Jr
    7. T Rob
    8. T Black
    9. Ennis
    10. Nwaba
    11. Lottery Pick?
    12. 28th Pick..


    Philly has drafted horribly with the chances they've been given...
    They gave away Noel. They will give away Okafor this summer...
    Although Embiid is talented, he's a 3 year Rookie with bad knees and Feet...
    Ben Simmons came in overweight and broke his foot...Who knows what he'll do next year...
    Saric looks like a good player...drafted in 2014...He'll leave Philly eventually...

    Lakers on the other hand have drafted well...
    Nance Jr, Zubac and Clarkson were all steals...
    I'm fully confident we will continue that streak in June...
    Ball and another solid player...
    We all will look back at this in a few years...and laugh!

    Towns and Wiggins are both better than anyone on your team. Wolves were better than the Lakers this year. Come back to reality.

    Here's the thing. Each one of your players has a major flaw in his game that needs to be fixed before they can be considered anything other then role players. You might have some nice pieces but you have no clear star on that team and you very well might not have one in the coming draft either...

    Individual talent wise, I have the Wolves and the Bucks ahead coz theyve the players with superstar potential. The Lakers and Sixers doesnt seem to have that kind of player yet. HOWEVER: The Lakers boasts DEPTH.

    The best teams, working as one unit could always beat the best players, duos or even trios.

    The team's got each and every position covered, especially if we get to retain this years' top 3 and land someone like Josh Jackson and say another big in the first round.

    Lakers
    Zubac/Black
    Randle/Nance/TRob
    ---/---
    Ingram/Clarkson/Nwaba
    Russell/Ennis

    Wolves
    KAT
    --
    Wiggins/Bazz
    Lavine
    Dunn/Jones

    Bucks
    Maker
    Parker
    Giannis
    Snell/Vaughn
    Brogdon

    Sixers
    Embiid/Okafor
    Simmons/Saric
    Anderson/---
    TLC/Stauskas
    ---/---

    Sorry, I forgot to include the Suns on the list. Put someone like Lonzo Ball on that team and theyd be pretty deep, too.

    Len(expiring)/Williams
    Chriss/Bender
    Warren/DJJ
    Booker/Knight
    ---/Ulis

    My apologies to the main forum...

    usually we can contain a toxic outbreak like this to the Lakers forum ... unfortunately we need to review our protocols to determine the proximate cause of our failure in this instance...

    again... my deepest sympathies for an distress this thread has caused.

    Yeah, this one is a head-scratcher.
