I've come back to this video three weeks after watching it...
now that Rondo has a broken hand and BI has been running the offense quite a bit.
Invariably, commentators have been talking about how stagnant and slow the offense is at times (despite the Lakers being a high paced team).
And here's the thing: it slows down because BI is a slow-down, iso-scorer. Think James Harden. Dribble, dribble, dribble... but instead of the step-back 3, BI takes mid-range jumpers, turnarounds or gets to the basket.
He's competent, but I'm not sure he's a good fit with the Lakers' new offensive strategy... and as much as he's taken huge strides defensively, he clashes with LeBron (they both require the ball too much), isn't a great outside shooter, and isn't fitting with the up-tempo style that guys like Lonzo, Josh Hart and Kyle Kuzma really gel with.
I think it's time for the Lakers to put him on the trading block. As much as I like the guy, we need a shooter more than we need Brandon Ingram at this point.

idk Brandon Ingram ball handling skills isn't that good enough . I'm not saying he's bad. but not good enough.

oh great let's use Ingram as PG and put Ball and Rondo on the bench and let Josh Hart play 48 minutes per game with no back up

The lakers should try to trade ingram, pope & rondo for beal and satoransky. If you can trade Covington and saric for butler. Then i think you can do this deal. 🤔

Smartest move i keep thinking of is not trading any of their core 4 young players: Ball, Ingram, Kuzma, Hart. So what if they don’t make playoffs this year. They shouldn’t have to hinder their development as the next big team by getting carried by Lebron and a second superstar. I think Lakers should wait it out and not trade any of these guys. All have so much potential, including Zo.

Ingram has the most potential of the new guys besides Kuzma. If they develop him right he can be like a Kevin Durant type of scorer

According to my analysis, for the Lakers to contend, they need to complete 2 trades for disgruntled superstars:
1. Ingram & Ball for Kemba Walker.
2. KCP & McGee & 1st Rnd Pick for Marc Gasol & Omri Casspri.
Lakers would have a line-up of
Kemba Walker/Rondo
Hart/Stephenson
LeBron/Casspri
Kuzma/Beasley
Gasol/Chandler
According to advanced statistical analysis, this is the best line-up that the Lakers can get, and would win 59 games based on a statistical simulator.

The lakers team will be dominant shortly.. somebody on the team need to get on lebron to go hard on defense period, They got plenty of offense so no need to “save” your energy

I think the Lakers need to package Ingram with ball and try to get a disgruntled superstar. Maybe Ingram, ball, and a couple of picks for John Wall? They just missed out on the Jimmy Butler fire sale and I can't think of anyone else.

Last year Ingram ran the point like a beast when Lonzo was injured. That's also when Lakers starting winning more. They should trade Lonzo if they can something worth while for him

They should because he always wants the ball like last time when he was waving at lebron for the ball & lebron just told him go back to position.
Experimenting is the only way to see what works better.

Does anyone else remember when Magic claimed that he put together this team, not thinking about creating a great shooting team in a 3 point shooting league, but rather a team based upon gutsy and gritty Defense! Lmao, what happened to this Defensive juggernaut that Magic claims to have created?!

Skip is SUCH an LA homer!!! I do agree that trading Ingram would fetch LA the shooter that they need! Using Ingram at PG is genius too Bc it will have one of two likely results: Ingram becomes the starting PG, making the lakers much better, OR, he will become trade bait of much greater value! Worst case: Ingram flops entirely, devaluing him for the Lakers and damaging his career irreparably!
It’s awesome seeing D Rose make this unprecedented comeback with his career! I hope for the very best for Rose, seeing a man overcome such mental challenges is wonderful and should give hope to others struggling with similar battles all across the country!

the only way to build a real dynasty is to do it with your draft picks
like how the warriors are doing, 4 starters are draft picks
trading for players and what not does not make it special
if they wanna keep on trading their #2 picks for players
and make some fake all star team then whatever

If they trade ingram for beal it should be straight up just those 2 in the trade. Ingram and beal are pretty even

Lakers should explore bringing Andre Ingram back cause Lebron ain't enough, rondo would rather have a UFC match, Lonzo flops, and every one else is more worried about how many minutes they play rather than actually playing the damn game.

The Lakers won't be playoff contenders this year and they know that this year is to figure each other all they need is a shooter if they trade at deadline it's Lonzo or BI Magic even said BI is unavailable and Lonzo is showing his value so you can tell that this year will be a make the playoffs surprise some people land a Free Agent it could work I think Bradley Beal will come Wizards are over matched in the east this year I doubt they'll make the playoffs if the Lakers can show enough bite maybe win 2 games against the Warriors go to the Western Conference Finals he'll join along the way I feel like a veteran shooter could at least bandage the wound at a 3PT shooter for them *cough cough* Ray Allen

You'll trying to trade a 21 year old potential allstar because of a guy that have 2 to 3 years maximum is foolish.
Ingram is better now than kuzma and Hart and have way more potential than both in the future.
What the Lakers however should do is get another star in the off season and keep Ingram for when LBJ starts declining along with the other young pieces and replace some of the other veteran players that don't fit with make up of this team, I guess the Lakers makes the Sport media lots of money so they have to push different topics every day!
