Julius Randle has been unbelievable in transition offense for the Lakers. He is fantastic as the roll man in a pick-and-roll offense, on putbacks and when posting up. He's made a name for himself before free agency. 📝:

Harden has the right mentality to stay on top: "Every year there are new guys who come in and they'll be more athletic and hungrier, so you have to make sure you’re ready [for them]. You always have to be getting better and you always have to be learning.”

Kuzma on Lakers pursuing star FAs: "We already have a great young core. If we can add stars or anybody who can help our young core grow, that'd be great. It would be good for our future and good for our organization. We’d get back to contending, for sure."

Harden on playing with CP3: “We’re both so competitive and just want to win. I’m willing to take a backseat to him if he’s got it going and he's willing to [do the same]. We know the game really well, so both of us can see things before they happen."

Make sure you read the end of this article. James Harden plays NBA Live against a friend. He chooses Toronto (because "the Rockets are too good") and faces OKC. The game ends with Harden DRAWING CONTACT AND GETTING FREE THROWS. I can't make this stuff up.
