From an impact standpoint, they're pretty similar.
In fairness that was probably 1Sun
Yup. Kuzma is basically the same as a shooter 1% higher from 2, 1% lower from 3, scores 1 ppg more, but grabs 3 more rebounds per game, all while playing the same minutes. And Kuzma is easlly the best player off the Lakers bench.
Saying he's not important to the Lakers is totally baseless... especially when they're already down both of their starters at PF/C (this sentence isn't responding to you, as much as it's continuing the conversation re: his importance for the team.
To be fair other than book getting tossed we were at full strength. They were missing Anthony Davis and kuzma. That’s an enormous difference in their depth.
oh ok guy.
The suns beating the Lakers in a playoff series is a long shot at best but that could be said about every other team in the league. At least there is a chance for the first time in a decade.
The fact we gained ground on them without Booker is a plus and shouldn't be overlooked.
Their top end players are better than ours. Our depth is better than theirs. I was making the second point, I will obviously concede the first.
However, injuries happen (either way of course) so who knows what could happen in the playoffs this year. This Suns team is built for the playoffs more than any other I can remember. So I am looking forward to seeing how it is going to turn out.
What will be interesting is how much the condensed season and tight race in the West affects LeBron's health/stamina in the post-season. He's used to taking games off, having a longer season to rest.
The break last year was tailor made for him.
Has it been leaked what exactly he said?
Kuzma tends to light us up, doesn’t he?
Hmm, we are deeper than I can recall any suns team since the 93 era, but I don’t know what you say is true.
Which is deeper:
Frank/crowder (one of them starts so you can only count one of them)
I think they’re more talented and deeper than us when healthy. But they are also banged up and a bit older. If Davis is out of the playoffs, all bets are off.
