I want to see the Lakers try starting Caruso over Bradley. The team plays better with Caruso on the floor and Bradley has been meh since he came back from injury.
I was bored and up late the other night and fired up a new gm session in 2K19. I tried the George trade from the Thunder for Gallo, Shai, and a pick. Then dropped the pick, then dropped gallo. They were never interested. I love how this real trade wound up so much.
Why would they want to avoid each other? This sounds like what everyone wants? It would be pretty historic.I wonder how badly the lakers and clippers want to avoid each other in the playoffs. Lakers definitely playing like they want first place in west. Wonder if they will intentionally drop to second if clippers hover around 4,5, and 6 near the end of the season or if Clippers start pushing for 2 and 3 instead.
theoretically you want to avoid your toughest opponent until as late as possible because it means someone else might upset them (or someone gets injured), but realistically playoff teams will only stealth tank like one game or so to set up more favorable first round matchups rather than trying to min-max the entire playoffs
Except we will lose 10+ games doing that.Lakers need to think about load managing both AD and Lebron for the sake of Kuzma.
Stagger rest either AD or Bron every 3 games and start Kuz instead. AD and Bron make it to the playoffs fresh and healthy, Kuzma shows off his talents while playing out his rookie contract. Win back to back titles, and Kuzma can get a 100 million dollar contract. Everyone is happy.
