What are the general feelings on the trade? I gave it some time to soak in and still don't care for it. throwing away some great young players that can build for the future for space that even if filled with the best scenario will still have a hard time against what is already been built. I am interested to hear how lakernation feels in general about it.
I would agree about the change in defense and it is great to see. My biggest worry is the end of the game, Luke is constantly finishing with Randal on the floor and as good as he may be a 1 on 1 defender he gets lost when the starters come back in in the team defensive concept on many occasions . Others teams are using this against us and our defense is suspect when it counts the most at the end of games.
