  1. Best selection the Lakers could’ve made, found myself leaning more for Okafor when the time came to it, tho a Russell aficionado. IMO, it’s likely due to Okafor wanting to be drafted by the Lakers as opposed to other players stating they’d be happy going to any team. But best decision was to draft Russell. D’R1 will help attract potential stars in a few years given his style of play. Both Clarkson and DR1’s game also complement one anothers. The inept FO would be dunces to trade away 10+ years for potential star talent for Cousin’s who’d likely have 8 years of prime game. It’s not as if the Lakers will be contending in a year or two or possibly three.
