    Ingram is for real. Reminds me so much of Jalen Rose.

    That's a good comparison ^^

    Especially lately when Ingram is almost unstoppable going to the basket. Both were very versatile and play good defense, Ingram with slightly more height and length but back in the iceman's day, it was probably pretty comparable as far as advantage over the opposition.

    Your baby can't do this

    Russell is good to he can put up numbers in a sneaky quite way when he wants. His issue may be bad knees and soft demeanor it limits him to a finess player. I just don't know if he fits in La. He's the new age guard not really a sg not really a pg just somewhere in the middle. Jack of all trade master of none. For defensive reasons however markelle would be a huge upgrade. He would complement the other guys more.

    Lakers scout Chaz Osborne no longer works with the team, with what a Lakers spokesperson said is “part of the reorganization of basketball operations.” The Lakers parted ways with Osborne earlier this month. Osborne was known to be close with former Lakers executive vice president of basketball operations Jim Buss, who was fired on February by his sister, Lakers governor Jeanie Buss. – via Los Angeles Daily News

    Chaz is gone too!

    Offseason news thread

    Brandon Ingram and Ivica Zubac among young Lakers participating in voluntary workout Wednesday

    Los Angeles young core was out in full force at the team’s practice facility.
    by Harrison Faigen@hmfaigen May 17, 2017, 12:36pm PDT

    A day after the Los Angeles Lakers lucked out and jumped up one spot to receive the second-overall pick in the 2017 NBA Draft, the majority of the rest of their young players hit the gym to remind the front office of what it already has.

    According to Mike Bresnahan of Spectrum Sportsnet, Brandon Ingram, Ivica Zubac, Julius Randle, Jordan Clarkson, David Nwaba, Tyler Ennis, and Larry Nance, Jr. all participated in a “voluntary workout” on Wednesday.

    The big headline here is obviously point guard related: It’s somewhat of a surprise to see Tyler Ennis is participating. Ennis is a free agent this summer, although his joining in could just be just a sign that he wants to try and impress the front office and convince them to bring him back more than any omen that his return is a certainty.

    But in all seriousness, the point guard-related “thing” that people are going to freak out about here is D’Angelo Russell being the only member of the young core to not be involved, especially because of the trade speculation inevitably swirling around him due to it seeming like a foregone conclusion the Lakers will be drafting Lonzo Ball.

    Additionally, there is segment of the fan base and media that enjoy any opportunity to freak out about Russell, but he has a valid excuse to not be in attendance. Tuesday night Russell became the first player to have his jersey retired by his high school, the preps-to-pros factory known as Montverde Academy, so logistically it may have been difficult for him to make it for an early workout in Los Angeles.

    It’s probably not a coincidence that so many of the young Lakers hit the gym right after the team got the second-overall pick, however.

    With another young player potentially joining the fold, every player in the organization is heavily incentivized to show a new front office that didn’t draft any of them that they’re just as valuable as whoever Lakers President of Basketball Operations Magic Johnson and General Manager Rob Pelinka select next month.

    That’s without even mentioning that most of the names of players in that workout are going to be featured in trade rumors about Paul George at some point.

    All the young Lakers can do right now is follow the advice so many of them were given in exit interviews: get into the best shape of their lives, work on their games and let the chips fall where they may during what promises to be a crazy summer in Los Angeles.

    Harrison Faigen is co-host of the Locked on Lakers podcast (subscribe here or listen him chat with Mike Prada of SB Nation about what keeping the second-overall pick means for the Lakers below), and you can follow him on Twitter at @hmfaigen.

    Well...
    For a kid like Russell...who is confident and has alot pride...It's hard call to make regarding his
    absence...But if he has any heartburn over Ball potentially joining the team, he should look no further than how Clarkson welcomed Russell after a successful Rookie season with the team...and he took coming off the bench like a champ...and team player...

    It's voluntary. Who knows why he didn't go. Maybe still some lingering family business related to his grandma? He went home to Louisville after the season. Non-story, IMO.

    Edit: Lol, nvm. It was a TL;DR situation for me. I saw on twitter he was getting his jersey retired at Montverde. Good for him. Now it's even MORE of a non-story.

    It literally says he wasnt there because he was being honored at his high school. Im sure he woulda been there otherwise seeing as how tyler ennis was there and hes basically a free agent
