    Bingo. Box score showed only 8 dudes played last night. (I couldn't watch sadly) if ingram can grow into the closer role we'll be fine ( And i think he really will).

    Exactly! We are young so are going to struggle a bit in the 4th naturally and we are also playing a 7-8 man rotation so we are going to get tired and fade come the 4th. Win or Lose we have drastically improved as the season has progressed.

    Except we played a team that had played 3 days in a row. We had a day off. You can tell they were very careful with ADs minutes because of that. But I get your point. We just need either our guys growing or that veteran star to take over games towards the end. We could have won at least 10 games with someone like PG13 in there in the 4th. Again I get you. We are very close to a playoff team.

    Yup PG and retain Randle 14-18m and we’re easily a playoff team next year

    I really think if we were to bring back the exact same team next season, with the experience our young players (Ball, Ingram, Hart, Kuzma) got this season with some improving over the summer we will be an 8th probably 7th seed next season. That's with the re-signing of Randle and if we were to bring back KCP & Lopez.

    If we just replace KCP with PG and bring back the rest of the crew would move us up to the 6th - 4th seed.

    That's pretty much exactly what I think.

    Remove some early season selfish play, some early season very questionable rotations and injuries and we're right there fighting for a playoffs spot this season.

    No doubt. I think Luke was on some Phil Jackson Peyote **** at the beginning of the year with his rotations. The chemistry just wasn't there at the beginning of the year and we have had to deal with the Hart, Ball, and Ingram extended absences. I can't wait for next year to see how the young guys improve and everyone healthy again.

    Yeah Walton was. I even mentioned it but I said he was hanging out with his dad too much. I wonder who has better dope PJ or Bill Walton?

    After that air it out team meeting they had, it's been very different. I credit that team meeting for the turnaround in the season.

    On a serious note. Luke was asked about Lonzo's shooting performance and he replied that he definitely thinks that Lonzo should shoot the 3s. He does not want a Point Guard hesitant to shoot 3s. Luke was totally ok with the amount of 3s Lonzo shot because he was open. He said he even encouraged Lonzo to continue shooting. So that is where that is coming from.

    My take is that wins and losses don't really matter this year. Playoffs were never a goal for this team. Just growth.

    Next year I think (hope) things will be addressed differently by the coaching staff since we will be pushing for the playoffs. (with or without all stars on our roster).
