Los Angeles Lakers
With LaVar Ball in Lithuania, the Lakers have been rolling, winners of four in a row and no longer in the cellar of the Western Conference.
That spot is reserved for LA’s opponent today, the Memphis Grizzlies. The Lakers don’t have their first round draft pick in 2018. It won’t necessarily go to Boston, who traded for it in the Jayson Tatum trade. If the pick is between #2 and #5, it will be Boston’s, otherwise, it will stay with Philly.
But LA has plenty of young talent its cultivating at the NBA level right now. Kyle Kuzma is 22 and leading the team in scoring as a rookie. Brandon Ingram is 20 and right behind him. And Lonzo Ball, after 18 points in a win over the Spurs at the end of last week, is into double-figures at 10.1 points per.
Ball is also averaging identical 7.1 rebounds and 7.1 assists per game. He played 43 minutes of the Lakers’ most recent win, an overtime thriller over Dallas. So Luke Walton clearly still believes he’s the point guard of the future.
The Grizzlies are tied with the Sacramento Kings for the worst record in the Western Conference and that feels about right. LA struggled for a while but that group isn’t as bad as the terrible collection of veterans in Memphis or Sac-Town.
The Grizzlies are just disgusting. And that’s hard to do when you have Marc Gasol. They’ve been showcasing Tyreke Evans for the last two months, trying to get a first round pick for him, but there isn’t even an NBA owner out there stupid enough to oblige.
Otherwise, what does Memphis have? Andrew Harrison has played more lately (the last two games). He’s played 30 minutes in each of those. He isn’t any good. There aren’t any building blocks for Memphis, unless they want to keep Gasol around and hope to become a contender again for the twilight of his career. Better blow it up and start all over.
