Lonzo Ball, Brandon Ingram, and Julius Randle each possess unique traits at their respective positions. Lonzo is a game-changing outlet passer who rebounds extremely well for a Point Guard, while Ingram and Randle are exceptional ball-handlers for their size, and a handful in transition. Their collective offensive potential is full of both exciting possibilities and potential concerns about their long term compatibility.
In the first Laker Film Room video for Forum Blue & Gold, I went back through the entire 2016-17 season’s worth of footage to see where Ingram and Randle progressed, thrived, and struggled, while combing through Lonzo’s Summer League to project forward into the 2017-18 season. Their collective ability in transition could make the Lakers one of the most exciting fast break teams in the NBA from Day 1, but questions regarding the outside shooting of Ingram and Randle, as well as the individual scoring ability of Lonzo Ball could be problematic in half court situations.
