All jokes aside, these two guys should not only bringing shooting to the team this season, but their youth and athleticism will be a huge plus, too. Both players should have a good year while playing in Mike D’Antoni‘s system.
The Lakers’ first pre-season game is against the Golden State Warriors this Saturday. Let’s hope both Young and Landry can continue to shoot 50 percent (or close) from range throughout the pre-season and beyond.
