Breaking down the Lakers training camp roster

Remember the Lakers: Episode 3

We are six games into the 2016-17 NBA season and the Lakers are a surprising 3-3 with a 20 point win over the Warriors. You’re used to hearing from us and other writers all the time tell you what the positives and negatives are, so we took to Twitter and let you give the analysis. Here are some of answers we received.

These were just some of the responses, and we have to say, we agree with most of them. Personally, the biggest positive for me has been the complete buy in from the players. They completely trust Luke Walton and they’ve bought into what he’s teaching and they are executing. The biggest negative has been the slow starts. The Lakers are near the bottom of the league in first half offensive and defensive efficiency in first halves, but in second halves that bumps up to top 5 in each. If they can figure out a way to execute in the first half at the level they do after halftime, the sky is the limit for the team.
