This week’s react question had to do with second year players and who fans think is the most impressive so far.
In a shock to none of us, Josh Green was not considered compared to other rising stars in the 2020 draft. He’s played just 52 minutes this season and doesn’t seem likely to break any part of the rotation soon. While it’s not his fault, Green’s selection and position on the bench are a firm reminder that the previous regime, whether it’s Donnie Nelson or Harlabos Voulgaris picked three players in the 2020 draft, all of whom are borderline NBA players at best.
Perhaps Green will find a way to crack the fringe rotation as the season goes along, but right now compared to some of his draft peers, he’s looking more and more as a long term project or lost cause, depending on your confidence level.
Additionally, fans were polled about the issues with the Lakers
The lack of depth thing is particularly funny considering this very stupid tweet from ESPN over the summer
