    Lavar ball predicts lakers to win 50+ games in 2017-2018. Do you agree?

    Watching Stephen A. Smith's reaction on ESPN's first take made laugh initially, but when you look at that roster.. it's promising. Their only downfall is that they play in the Western Conference.

    Lineup:

    C: Lopez/ Zubac/Bryant/Zimmerman
    PF: Randle/Nance
    SF: Ingram/Deng/Kuzma
    SG: KCP/Brewer/Hart
    PG: Ball/Clarkson/Ennis


    IMO, they can still make a few tweaks to the roster. They could try and unload Luol Deng's contract to a team by adding Julius Randle to the trade.

    But again, the West is stacked & loaded this season.

    1- Warriors 67+
    2- Thunder 58+
    3- Rockets 55+
    4- Spurs 52+
    5- Wolves 48+
    6- Blazers 45+
    7- Nuggets 42+
    8- Pelicans 41+
    9- Clippers 39+
    10- Jazz 37+
    11- Suns 32+
    12- Lakers 30+
    13- Mavericks 28+
    14- Grizzles 24+
    15- Kings 20+

    I have Lakers going 30-52 AT LEAST.

    they should be happy with 32-34 wins.

    If you want the ultimate, you've got to be willing to pay the ultimate price. It's not tragic to die doing what you love.

    He's a serial braggart. He says so many stupid, outrageous things that no one pays attention when he's wrong, but he can hang his hat on the one time he was right.

    I think 32 wins is reasonable if Ball is NBA ready. But Ingram was bad last year, Randle was bad, Lopez was average, KCP was average, Clarkson was average. Nance should be getting almost 1000 more minutes than he had, but he won't. A 6 win improvement over Russell and Young isn't unreasonable.

    I don't care where anyone chooses to go in free agency. I really don't. Yes, KD "broke" the NBA for a year or two, but I can't blame him for going to the team that fit what he wanted.

    The worst part about the Warriors winning is that now I can't have an opinion without being a "homer" or a "hater". It used to be that dialogue had merit independent of accusations.

    If he meant the 2017 and 2018 seasons, yeah over both they should get 50 wins.

    Exactly, people sheep their ways to opinions, that's why surprises happen. Lakers may not win 50 but they will get the 8th seed and over 40wins.

    50+ losses sounds more accurate. I hope Ball is a major bust for the sole purpose of his dad being an obnoxious ******* and wanting to hear his excuses when his son sucks.

    I think 41 wins is not out of the realm of possibility. Personnel is better and ball will be something else imo.

    but hopefully we can use his expiring, if not at least we unloaded Novak's deal...
