    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
