Magic Johnson discusses the Lakers young core in this interview clip. Who better to ask next to Kobe? Magic acknowledges the growth that the young group of D’Angelo Russell, Jordan Clarkson, Julius Randle, are already looking more developed than last year, and will continue to develop over time. Walton is also developing well as a young head coach.

I’ve made this similar argument myself. Give it 3-5 years and the Lakers are gonna be a problem. They’ll be serious title contenders. Assuming this young core stays together of course.

Agree or no?
