There is strong empirical support for what I'm saying with pretty much every star player LBJ has ever played with (with the exception of Kyrie, who ended up wanting out because of how he had to adjust his game to accommodate playing with LBJ): Wade, Bosh, and Love. Guys who need the ball in their hands don't play their best with LBJ. Guys who can play off the ball and are good shooters do. Ingram is actually a pretty decent shooter (not sure where you're getting that he's not). His free throws haven't been great, but he's shooting 40% from 3s and is knocking down the midrange very effectively, that's not saying anything about his form, which is also pretty good. However, he is a guy who gets his shooting rhythm off the dribble, which is different than getting it from catch and shoot opportunities and there are simply going to be less of the former when you have LBJ (or most other stars who play off the dribble on your team). I'm not making any excuses for Ingram though, I'm relatively fine with how he's playing.
    To NPHs point which is a good one. And to yours...if Ingram and Ball dont mesh with Lebron starting why not bring them off the bench where they can be more productive?

    That way they can play their style ball and not be spot up shooters. Ingram and Lonzo need the ball to be effective. Maybe Ingram will also play better on the iso against other teams bench.

    I dont think Luke has the balls to bring those guys off the bench, but it would be the right move imo if are trying to win consistently. He did leave Rondo in the game in the 4th which was the right move to win the game. The only bad part is Rondo is not a reliable spot up shooter when Lebron is playmaking at the end of games.

    Maybe Rondo or Lonzo shouldnt be in if it's close under 2 minutes...Ingram..Lebron..Kuz..Hart and chandler may be our best lineup to finish games...kuz..hart can both hit those jumpers. Ingram and Chandler can crash the boards or Ingram can dive to the rim...

    Ive never liked kcp so my opinion stands. He has bad shot selection and hes a selfish player.

    I think this is the lineup we should see closing the 4th quarter..
    Pope doesn't belong in any lineups with this team..

    Don't worry, Pope will be gone after December 15th. Maybe to Cleveland for Korver or something.

    I wouldn't take on Korver because I don't want to add salary next season we need to keep the books clean because we already lost $5 mil of cap space to Deng. We can't lose no more. So I would rather just let KCP expire.

    Korver is not going to be traded for KCP. He might be waived and Lakers might jump to get him, but KCP could be dealt if there is a bigger fish and the Lakers need his cap. Otherwise he is finishing this season and then gone. Ingram on the other hand, might be the one that the Lakers could be willing to deal and has a better value if he continues to show that he is not willing to adapt t Lebron's game or become mint the 6 man. Interesting times for this team. Kuz and Hart are looking more and more solid players to fit Lebron's style of play and both are cheaper to keep. Ingram might start to ask for the sky and the stars. He is obviously being rebellious this season and that to me that s a sign that he is not happy with his role. He has tons of potential, but still very weak physically and his shooting is not yet as consistent as we wish, but he is a player that once he reach his maturity level, is someone that is going to dominate. Magic needs to make a decision pretty soon.

    The problem is that there is no one available.

    Lebron's agent is his friend and owns KCP's contract representation. Lebron also needs shooters so much particularly now that his movibility is more limited. He is looking to see what payers in the roster adapt to his game. Ingram is the rebel and Lebron does not like this. But Ingram should go to the bench and accept that role to show Lebron his game and capability like he did last part of the previous season. He was rooming before he was injured by that idiot in Miami. Remember that he still 21 years old! Lebron is on his last wheels and by the time he is gone, Ingram will be starting to take over.
