I feel like they are improved.
But it would be interesting to see Lonzo grow. They did lose a pg spot for sure. Josh Hart was pretty solid, but I think replaceable. Ingram still has potential, but I dunno if he'll live up to it. But do they have potential to be what AD is? And even with LBJ at his age, I dunno if they ever going to be as good as LeBron is currently.
I would say AD is worth it cuz it's here and now. LeBron is getting older. Cousins is a bit of a gamble, but he is much better than any center they had in a while. The only problem is the potential defense and lockerroom issue. He could strive to be a superstar again, but it's gamble so we'll see. They have solid 3 and d guys. And they still have Kuzma.
AD and Kuzma maybe the two guys going forward after LeBron retires or regress. There's no question what could AD do. Kuzma may continue to improve. Cousins if he wish to stay, could be a great asset. They should be in good hands if they stay healthy.
