Svi's amazing 3-point shooting captured on video
LeBron James’ history shows he prefers playing with veterans, but given how many assists James could make on Svi Mykhailiuk 3-pointers, don’t you think it might be a good idea for James to make an exception? Sure, he would have to guard his man and Svi’s much of the time, but even so, if Svi’s scoring three points at one end and giving up two at the other, the Lakers are ahead in that equation.
The impressive video in this Tweet posted by @LakerFilmRoom is as revealing as any of a shooter not being guarded can be.
The Lakers open their six-game preseason schedule Sunday in San Diego, the first indication of how Lakers coach Luke Walton might plan on using the shooter extraordinaire who just turned 21 last June 10.
The Lakers' projected starting lineup: Lonzo Ball, Kentavious Caldwell-Pope, Brandon Ingram, LeBron, JaVale McGee.
Top perimeter reserves: Rajon Rondo, Josh Hart and Lance Stephenson.
In time, the Lakers might find that Svi’s better equipped to take advantage of the generosity of skilled passers James and Ball than Stephenson, a career .303 3-point shooter.
