After getting the thick eyebrows, the Lakers became one of the popular candidates for the championship. Although they failed to introduce Leonard to form the Big Three, the team also made full use of the 30 million salary space. Seven people were signed in one day, and the signings were very targeted. In the new season, they will play the strongest energy under the coaching of Vogel and Kidd. Today, according to Chris Haynes, the Lakers have begun to make new changes.
Haynes said the Lakers plan to let James play the starting point guard position in the new season, and Danny Green will also become him Backcourt partner. According to sources, James has recovered from a groin injury in the Christmas War last season and he is in very good condition. On the premise of being healthy, the position of the point guard is no stranger to James. According to BBR statistics, James has served as a point guard 14% of his rookie season. During the Cavaliers and Heat, James also often played the role of team organizer, it can be said that organizing forwards is the most comfortable position James has played for so many years.
And last season, Wharton let James play the role of the center of the team's small lineup. This is a brand new attempt for James. In the small ball era, the center needs to have certain rim protection and defensive capabilities. , And this also means that James not only needs to make contributions on the offensive end, but he also has to fight with the opposing center forward on the defensive end. For the 34-year-old James, the physical exhaustion is undoubtedly huge. Indirectly caused his groin strain!
In the new season, if James appears as a starting point guard, his career will be extended to a certain extent. First of all, James’ height advantage allows him In the face of most defenders, he can take advantage of his position. He can calm down and focus on the organization. With the joining of the thick eyebrows, his pressure on the offensive end will also be reduced, which also saves him from having to endure the size of last season. Stress.
Secondly, James’ passing ability can make the Lakers’ offense smoother, his field vision covers the entire court, and his cake feeding ability is not worse than Rondo . With James as the main offensive initiator, there are undoubtedly more offensive opportunities for other teammates, and it also allows the Lakers to have more offensive options.
In this way, Rondo and Cousins are likely to become the core of the second team! The two are also old teammates, they are very familiar with each other, and the important thing is that Cousins vs. Rondo He believes in Rondo very much. When you sit on the bench with Rondo and Cousins, it makes you feel dreamy. The Lakers in the new season will have the most violent impact on the championship and face the new pattern of competition. , This brand new purple and gold army will not fear anyone.
