The Los Angels Lakers point guard revealed three teammates who he thinks are the most under-appreciated on The LiucciCast podcast. They are Dwight Howard, JaVale McGee and Avery Bradley.
According to Caruso, Howard dropped his past ego and is now enjoying his role, whether it’s 15 points, 15 rebounds or zero points and 5 blocks. This season, the former first draft pick is averaging 7.5 points, 7.4 rebounds and 1.2 blocks per game.
Two-time NBA champion has also fit well in the Lakers roster. Caruso pointed at his hard work and ability to block shots as well as fearlessness of getting postered while attempting a block. In his season year in Los Angeles the 32-year-old center is averaging 6.8 points, 5.8 rebounds and 1.5 blocks per game.
And finally it’s Avery Bradley whose defensive ability Caruso stressed. With the 29-year-old guard on the team the Lakers have one of the best defenses in the NBA. Bradley is averaging 8.6 points per game this season.
