Sigh let me brace myself for two very opposite views on the take. Nick already crowning them NBA Champions and Cris going way to the left and saying they will be terrible. I will say I did not like her when I first saw her making her rounds on the circuit. I think she has a "different" voice but she KNOWS her stuff and participates in the discussion more than any other in her position.

The Lakers are going to be good... but they're going to have a bych of a time guarding teams with great guards if they have any interior players at all. Houston is just going to be a problem... Portland is going to be a problem. Utah and Denver are both problems. Lebron is going to have to hustle boy. If the Lakers are running two bigs... He's gonna have to check guards a lot because other teams are gonna force switches... Harden, Dame, Westbrook, CJ, Donovan, Mike Conley... just to wear him out... Even Portland doesn't really even have one player on the floor you don't have to body up. The WC is so good this year.

@Jay James Portland doesn't really have anyone on the floor right now that can't play. Lakers are going to start AD and another big at center... run lebron at point... The Lakers are gonna switch everything most of the time right? Portland is gonna run Lebron off picks and off ball until they get him suited up with CJ or Dame... or just to make him work. It's not up to him Jay. If he doesn't do it the entire defense crumbles because Portland won't have a player on the perimeter that can't shoot. This isn't one on one everyone stays home on their man basketball anymore. Lakers are running 2 bigs... James is in space checking guards... that's all there is to it. That's what's gonna happen. It's not a discredit to the Lakers... it's obvious.

Sad to see this show not address Lebron's comments. Nick & CC will quickly praise his work in the "community" but never address his hypocrisy. Not addressing one of the biggest issues in sports on this show is hypocritical. They should never address anything that has to do with social injustice or even reference it on this show because they do not take it as seriously as they portray it. “Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere. We are caught in an inescapable network of mutuality, tied in a single garment of destiny. Whatever affects one directly, affects all indirectly.” - Martin Luther King Jr

Have to disagree with Nick’s point on their “clutch” line up being the best. They would be the best offensive line up, but not defensive. AD does not need to play the five. Bradley, Green, LeBron, AD, Javale is their best line up. Love Kuzma but until he actually becomes relatively consistent, and not a complete liability defensively, he won’t be apart of the BEST line up.
