There’s mad tanking talk but we all know Lakers don’t tank. I’m a Lakers fan, so I hope you guys make the playoffs, but if you don’t I have a two part question: Have you seen the collegiate Big 3 (Wiggins, Parker and Randle) and what do you think of them?
I’ve watched all three of them. I’ve seen Jabari (Parker) play a lot because he’s in in the ACC and so is Syracuse now, so I’ve seen him more than the other two. Wiggins is a raw athlete that hasn’t tapped into his true potential yet. Parker is so big bodied and can do it all: dribble, post up, shoot, anything you need. That’s going to set him apart from a lot of people. Randle reminds me of Z-Bo, just more athletic. He’s got the left hand and he’s just a great scorer down low.
Of the three, who do you think would fit the Lakers style of play the best?
Hmm, I think Jabari. He’s versatile, can do a lot more than both of them right now. He can shoot from outside, mix it up. I’d say Jabari.
