    What Hachimura should do is help them win those close games. Nearly all of their recent losses have only been by a few points. Hopefully Rui will provide an additional scoring punch and get them back into playoff contention. That will also let AD heal up longer so that he can come back strong for the playoffs

    I would give this move a B+ because it gives the Lakers some up size from the 3 to the 5 position, they had too many guards, and it gives guys like Lonnie Walker IV and Austin Reaves back to their primary position which is the 2 guard when they come back. So that balances out their roster. This is a good pickup.

      That's precisely the point!!!! A plethora of guards make the Lakers go oftentimes small ball!!!! WTF, Coach Ham can't do anything but to force these guards to play at the 3 and sometimes the 4 which is really ridiculous!!!! Rob Pelinka made million of Lakers' fans happy and contented with this trade!!! Rui is a good defender, a pure 3 and D wing who can shoot outside and can pounce inside the rim!!!! Hope this will make Coach Ham easy to deploy his players without resorting to play "SMALL BALL" lineup with the addition of Rui!!!! Go go Lakers!!!!

      @yUng2o3 naw that's facts he didn't do that well the first time around I just thought he would been a decent addition since Washington was already willing to make a trade but yea I don't think he does well with championship level expectations I feel like that's part of the reason he's been playing well with Washington all he has to do is hoop so I definitely agree

    I like the trade since there's honestly potential for this Lakers team to do something. Dennis Schro, Thomas Bryant, and Russ have really stepped up these past couple weeks with AD, Lonnie, and Reaves out. Lakers have beaten the Nuggets, Grizzlies, Kings, Bucks, and have taken the Sixers and Celtics to OT. Not saying they're beating any of those teams in a playoff series right now but if they keep improving, Lakers will be scary to face assuming both Bron and AD play at a level near to what they have.

    Thomas Bryant came from the Wizards, and he's everything the Lakers need rn. I think the Lakers got another piece they need. Rui can start or come off the bench and play consistent. The Lakers traded an undersized 2 guard and picks they got from the Wizards before for a 3 and D player with good size that can help them win now.

    I think he’s going to help more then people think. He can play the 3, 4 and even the 5 against some teams. He will allow the Lakers to reduce LBJ minutes and AD also. The key is if AD can stay healthy. Defensively he makes them better because of his length, he has large wingspan 😊

I think Ham can help him improve defensively. Rui is 6'8" with a 7'2" wingspan. That can make him very disruptive if he gets better. He isn't however making his debut tonight. We gotta wait

    Any other year you can look at this maybe as a "meh" trade, but the Lakers at 22/25 are only 2 games out of the 6 seed and 4 games out from the 3😳. Hachimura now allows them to put Reaves and Lonnie Walker back at their natural 2 positions and perfectly balances the roster. Rui is young, athletic, makes a lot corner 3s, can post up and not a bad defender..Nunn was playing better lately but this is the kind of trade I have been hoping for..

    Nice trade, reminds me of Ariza a little bit. But It's not "the lights" or "expectations" playing with LeBron, it's the fact that you need to go stand in the corner and wait for him to kick it out lol. He turns a lot of guys into one dimensional spot up shooters whether that's their game or not.

    It's still a good trade considering that he might be a viable future player for them, maybe even get under the wings of their veteran players, and strengthen their defense. However, Lakers are dependent on LeBron and AD rn. Unless those two drive the team, they are going nowhere. The West is dangerous.

      @Dats a paddlin riding with Lebron to a ring is different than excelling on a championship team. Kyrie and AD are the only stars to pair with Lebron and maintain the individual production that they had prior. Literally any and every other star to play with Lebron has saw their stats and overall impact decrease….or “sacrificed” for the sake of winning a ring. There’s nothing wrong with that, but the point is you can’t say Lebron makes players around him better when all tangible evidence actually contradicts that EXCEPT the “they won a ring” argument

      @Damon Jones He helped make those goes be champions man. You can put Prime Lebron with a star and they gonna eventually win a ring. AD and Kyrie can’t just win with any star. Lebron and Steph are the only players that could win with any other star in their prime that I have seen in the last decade and that’s why they are considered top 10 players all time rn. People also tried to say players can’t excel with Lebron and you just said they could. They all were still all stars other than Westbrook at a certain point with Lebron so he didn’t take away individual success from them like how some people say.

      @Dats a paddlin he didn’t make those guys better, he actually allowed for them to be themselves. If you watch any Lebron led team since he left Miami, the recipe has always been to surround Lebron with 3 n D guys. But when it comes to AD and Kyrie, the only way you’re going to get the best out of them is to let them be their own man.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but I think Shannon is the only one left and has been for a while. This shows you how seriously he takes this and how much he enjoys his craft. Skip deserves high-praise for requesting Shannon to be his co-host.

      People and Bball youtubers felt like Rui Hachimura could have gotten the Wizards a 1st Round pick, so the lakers getting him for a couple of 2nd Round picks(which rarely turn out to be good) is a bargain, plus he'll be there in LA for a good amount of time as he wants to have a contract extension which the Wizards did not want to give him.

    Rui needs a little more seasoning, but he has all-star potential. Wizards probably can't resign him due to the big money they invested in Beal. Thomas Bryant is a similar ex-Wizard, but he can get overpowered.

      @jerkitlb I agree that he helps in that he's a talented young player, plus they gave up peanuts for him...but his efficiency will definitely take a hit with more volume and more high pressured moments, which he hasn't really had in DC. He's gonna get put in constant pick/roll action and Bron is also a P/R target for teams so I don't think Lakers will be able to hide him defensively if he gets big mins.

      @Israelif he maintains his shooting efficiency from 3 on open shots it’ll pay dividends, + he is 6’8 7’2 wingspan, his defense is shaky, but having Bron the highest IQ player of all time, Reaves a good perimeter defender and AD a DPOY candidate, should make it easier for him to slide in at PF and play the Kuzma role

    As a die-hard and long-suffering Wizards fan, there is this weird misconception in the media that Rui is a three-point shooter but he really isn't at all. Admittedly he has added that to his game this year, but his real strength is the in-between game, driving and pulling up, and posting up at the elbow. Not the greatest defensive player, but he definitely has the tools to be. As usual, the Wizards are completely clueless with an utterly useless coach. This team is stacked with talent.

      I think u need to Google the definition of "tremendously" my guy cause Rui has had 1 fairly good season & the rest were trash even by the Wizards standards. If u actually did your homework you'd see he's been teetering on the cusp of being sent to the G-League he was so awful. Best thing u guys got going is his best season was with Westbrook but now that he's in LA he's gonna have to deal with the pressure of delusional Laker stans expecting him to be some sort of savior & that's not him but hey you Laker stans do it to yourselves at this point so I have no sympathy whatsoever
