The Zubac thing is so weird, the way the story is out there, the Lakers offered him up to the Clippers. To sign Beasley??Gortat’s washed up too IMO, but I’ll take him over Howard or Noah at this point.
I’ll take a Rakeem Christmas(or someone like that) over any of them.
Still mad we gave up Zubac.
Pelinka used to be his agent. Not saying its a lock he would end up there, but i think it's something.I never bought the Iggy to Lakers manifest destiny anyway. Assuming he gets bought out, he'll have his pick. It's not hard to envision better situations to be in.
Not sure who to blame for the Zubac & Bryant moves, so I'll put it on Magic. Either 22-year-old would fit nicely on the Lakers' roster, but I'd be even more invested if the local kid were still with LA.their names were ivica zubac & thomas bryant
Hated to see Boogie suffer another career-threatening injury, but looks like the Lakers -- and his ex -- might've dodged a bullet. Dwight Howard as a roster-filler suddenly seems more palatable.

Fair enough, and the Kuzma stuff was a lot weaker.hindsight bias meets selection bias
sure, but outside of a small handfull of (seemingly) sure things, every team is looking for tiny clues about players down the draft order. this kind of analysis is valuable if the guy has a track record of hitting on guys before they succeed, not after.Fair enough, and the Kuzma stuff was a lot weaker.
I think the idea though is that there are things to look for when scouting players that aren't as obvious and don't show up on the stats that can help predict how a player performs at the next level. He's taking an example of two guys that vastly overperformed their draft slot to highlight some things to look for when evaluating other players.
