Even if they just flip that to a small positive it's a huge deal, but this bench has the potential to do much more than that.

    Markieff shot 42% from 3 in the playoffs. He's a strong guy who can't be easily pushed around and he can switch on defense. Really glad he's back.

    There will not be any black holes this coming season. Lebron and Davis will have way more support at all levels than last season. Plus Lakers still have Kuzma in case they need to make some extra adjustment.
    Lebron is the one!

Last year every game the best player on the court was always either Bron or AD. I donít remember a single game where one of them didnít have the best game. If Ibaka came here, he never would of been the most productive player either. With Trez, heís going to be the most productive player on the court over AD and Bron a few times next year. Again, to me he is so much better than Ibaka.
    Harrell was a big part of the Clippers bench offense, plays were ran for him besides what he got from transition. In order for him to have that same kind of impact with us, plays will have to be designed for him. I'm good with that.

    Shroder also, he will be handling the ball with the 2nd unit. I think both will have a decrease in PPG, both between 14-15 PPG.

    Where does that leave Kuzma? I'm kinda willing to say KCP will average more points then Kuzma.

    It would be huge to take some of the load off LBJ and AD.

    I am excited for this season to see all the new players and how they all come together as a team.

    I really want THT and Kostas to get some quality playing time so they can get up to game speed and let's see if they can up their game and contribute.

    Will McKinnie be a contributor like some have said?

    Give us the luxury of trading Kuz if we can something good in return. It would benefit Kuz to get rid of his soft play and fill out his game. If not he goes.
    Co sign on THT and Kostas

    Iím hoping that Dennis and Trez will not only close games out for us, but also lead the team in minutes during the regular season. If we can keep AD and Bron around 30min a game, and put Dennis and Trez in foe about 34 min a game and still dominate, then I think we may go that route. I think Dennis and Trez are good enough to do it too. We may be able to keep both around the 18-20 pt margin and Bron and AD around the 25-27 pt margin. I donít see any reason for either of there roles to diminish seeing that they are both very good players and the fact that AD and Bron will probably rest more this season than they ever have before so to the short turnaround from the bubble. Iím predicting 17-20 pts per game from both this season.

    I think Bron and AD will average in the low 30s. Only because the seeding will be more important this year due to probable traveling with home field advantage. As for Schroeder, he is too small to play that many minutes. It will increase the chances for injury. Plus we are very deep at the guard position. AC can average more minutes also. For Trez, he is a super energy guy. I have noticed when he plays over 30 minutes he is not as effective. Especially at the defensive end. Again we have Kief ( which was a huge signing) to take some of those minutes also. We need Trez fresh for the playoffs. He would be a matchup nightmare for Denver or Portland for instance.

    Maybe I'm overreacting but I'm not sure how I feel about this.. IMHO, he and Trez would be amazing off the bench. I just think starting two shooters alongside LBJ as the primary playmaker in the starting unit makes more sense.
