The 2021 Lakers are stacked with talented athletes, but three players stood out throughout the preseason.
The Los Angeles Lakers‘ truncated preseason is over. Who knew four practice games could create such a flurry of hype and anticipation throughout Lakers Nation?
Talen Horton-Tucker went from a guy who nobody outside of a few diehard Lakers fans knew about to a headliner across ESPN. Now some folks are convinced he’s a future All-Star and that he could bump an established role player from the Lakers rotation.
Last season Kyle Kuzma created a massive divide among Lakers faithful. Some folks loved him while others would have liked nothing more than to see him shipped out for a lowly second-round pick.
This preseason, Kuzma once again teetered between a solid starter on a championship squad to a meek bit player who looks like he doesn’t belong, hence taking last season’s fan divide and turning it into a massive abyss.
Montrezl Harrell’s preseason was so incredibly uninteresting Lakers fans are now interested in how he’ll perform on LA’s varsity squad.
Next, we’ll forecast how Talon Horton-Tucker, Kyle Kuzma, and Montrezl Harrell will play during the upcoming season.
