D'Angelo Russell shot 3-19 in his final college game and they got smoked by Arizona in the Tournament, same round Ball lost in last season - bringing this up because you dis Ball for getting outplayed by Fox in the Tourney. Russell divided a locker room by his silliness to what he did to Nick Young, had he done that to me I would never be able trust him again. Russell shot 40% from the field in his 2nd season (last season) and was a poor Defender and was just immature with little Leadership. How on earth could you or anyone think he could lead the Lakers to anything? Ball will be so much better than him. All Magic has done so far is get rid of a horrendous contract in Mozgov's which is almost impossible to do so, so he can sign Paul George and another Great Free Agent in 2018 and he replaced Ball with Russell. He also added a Center that is a great teammate that can give him 17-20 Points in Lopez. That is all that has happened. I see that is a huge+.
