    I agree with QO, but let’s not allow this to turn into a politard thread. Take it to another thread.

    With KD hobbled, they have the best 2 payers from 2018-2018 season. Depth is a bit of an issue, but can also be addressed to an extent. Health, and LeBrons decline are the biggest factors imo.

    I just can’t see AD being healthy enough to help carry them through the season and playoffs. On average over his 7 years he’s missed 16 games a season.

    Does anyone actually believe that Zion being much heavier all summer/camp didn’t lead to his knee issue? 
     

    He was easily 20 pounds heavier than he was at Duke.

    Are you saying he’s currently 305? Because he was listed as 285 while at Duke.

    I don’t know his weight. But he was clearly carrying more weight.

    The last 3 years he’s been very healthy. Unless you think he was actually hurt last year (I don’t).

    He’s missed 115 games in 7 years. Odds of him playing 72+ games isn’t great.

    I don’t think the Lakers even want him playing more than 70. I’d probably cap him and LeBron around 70. Maybe 67 for LeBron (15 games off). Ideally a bit less for both, if possible.

    Kawhi Leonard has never played more than 74 games in a season. He played 60 last year. You’re not concerned with him and injuries?

    Why cap Davis at 70?

    0 chance the lakers win the 2020 NBA title with what they have

    Because the best players don’t play more than 75 games when 100% healthy. And they are starting to go more towards 70 if a deep playoff run is anticipated (and home court isn’t essential).

    I agree, they would have to make a few moves. Will be a better guage when we see them not versus the best team in the west, imo.
