Lakers looked like an elite team tonight. They're a dangerous team in the West now...watch out.
That Big 3 of Clarkson, Russell, and Randle is going to be tough to handle for many teams in that conference.
Even I won't go anywhere near that. Houston's D was already bad with Harden...Now you add D'Antoni (or should I say, "Antoni")?
I think Ingram can be a very dangerous two-way player when he gets better. His length/wingspan really bothers guys. I'm also hoping his shot and aggressiveness come along. He and Russell are the players with the most potential on the team.
I also think that Clarkson is good, but his ceiling is limited. I don't think he can get much better.
I'm not that high on Randle. Hustle, rebounding, ball handling, scoring near the rim, etc. are important, which he can do, but he can be way too wild - turnovers, missed outside shots, ball dominance. Better defensive teams will make him look bad. Many Lakers fans like Nance over him, myself included.
