This season the Los Angeles Lakers have many new players. The most popular ones include Lonzo Ball, the second pick in the NBA draft, and Kyle Kuzma, the twenty seventh pick in the draft. team.

Our team is extremely young and has a bright future ahead. Fans are hopeful we will make the playoffs, but it seems unlikely since most of the players aren’t experienced.
As of now, our record is 5-5 and Jordan Clarkson, Ingram, Kuzma, and Ball have made their presence on the team noticeable. Ball pleased the crowd because he was extremely close to a triple double, in the Lakers second game of the season, with 29 points, nine assists, and 11 rebounds.

Many fans, including myself, think Clarkson has improved immensely, since he has been scoring many points consistently, and should be rewarded with more time on the court. Luke Walton, the coach, should consider making Kuzma and Clarkson part of the starting lineup because of their outstanding performances.

During the summer league, when Ball was unable to play in the last game, Kuzma led the team to victory. He stepped up and scored 30 points, had six three-pointers, and ten rebounds.
Critics and basketball fanatics say Kuzma is playing how they expected Ingram to play last year. Fans assumed because of his achievements during the championship game of the summer league, Kuzma would automatically be a starter, but unfortunately, that wasn’t the case.

Larry Nance Jr., who has also been working diligently, has already posterized many people with his powerful dunks.

To all Lakers fans, new or old, don’t lose hope. The Lakers are the future of basketball and even though the Black Mamba isn’t on the team anymore, our time will come.
We have to stay united, bleed purple and gold, and remain loyal. It might not be this season or the next, but mark my words, the Lakers will reign once again.
