Coming off a championship season with the Toronto Raptors, forward Danny Green thinks Lakers, like Raptors past season, can build chemistry within one year:
“I think that you obviously need time to build chemistry, but I think with [the Toronto Raptors], we did it within one year.
New guys coming on, I don’t think you need that much time, you could do it within a couple of months. Especially after the trade deadline, we got Marc Gasol and a bunch of other guys, Jeremy Lin, to come on board and we didn’t have a lot of time.
But you can build that chemistry if you have the right pieces and the right veteran leadership to make something special happen. Even though this is a new team of new young players and new old players and veterans, it’s very possible that we can build chemistry really fast and still be a special team or the last team standing,” Green said during Lakers Media Day.
The 32-year-old averaged 10.3 points per game for the Raptors last regular season, shooting 3-pointers at 45%. In 24 playoff appearances he averaged 6.9 points and made 33% of threes.
