Scouts’ Bold Assessment of Lakers Guard Kendrick Nunn Will Fire Up LeBron James

LeBron James should be pretty excited about one scout’s opinion on Kendrick Nunn after what he said. The Los Angeles Lakers are in the middle of preseason right now, working on getting the roster down before the real games start. Their first game is set to start on October 20th against the Golden State Warriors. It will be interesting to see how they take the court after an off season with a lot of changes.

The Lakers are going to look a lot different with Russell Westbrook, Kendrick Nunn, and Malik Monk, Wayne Ellington, Kent Bazemore, and Rajon Rondo replacing Dennis Schroder, Kentavious Caldwell-Pope, Alex Caruso, and Wesley Matthews.

With Westbrook, it looks like a major upgrade. But that might not be the biggest surprise this season, at least according to one scout.

Apparently, Kedrick Nunn has very much been impressing people and could be a top young NBA point guard. It would be great to see him back up Russell Wesbrook who should be getting the starting role.

Westbrook recently talked about joining the Lakers.

“Being from LA, you always wish that you could play for your home team,” Westbrook said. “That’s definitely something that always circled around in my mind. Maybe one day? But I always would come back and be like, ‘Ah, that probably won’t happen.’ I just had to wait and see. But now that we’re here, I’m going to take full advantage of it.”

“LeBron is one of the best players to play this game, and his ability to do everything on the floor allows me to just figure it out,” Westbrook said. “I’m coming to a championship-caliber team, and my job is to make his game easy for him, and I’ll find ways to do that. As it pertains to ball-handling, it really doesn’t matter. There’s many different ways you can impact the game without having the ball in your hands. I’ve been able to do that for a number of years, and we’ll figure it out.”

“Anytime you have three great players like this, there is an element of sacrifice required, and we’ve all talked about that and are all-in on that,” Vogel said. “But these three guys can do it all. They’re all make-the-right-play players. It’s not just about scoring or being a one-dimensional player. They can all do it all. I’m most excited about seeing what the three of them on the court at the same time looks like.”
