@kareemabduljabbar_33 to meet with @MagicJohnson & @JeanieBuss about a possible role with the Lakers.
Abdul-Jabbar has expressed interest in mentoring @IvicaZubac
Ivica Zubac has worked on his hook shot with Bill Bertka. "He’s equipped to use it well, he has the length to begin with. If he can develop his shooting touch and agility, he’ll use it well.” says Kareem

Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald gives the real reason why the Lakers are the natural contender for Chris Bosh’s service once he's medically cleared.
Bosh who recently reached a settlement with the #MiamiHeat, has reiterated several times that he wants to resume his NBA career. Unfortunately, Bosh is still on blood thinners and teams will take a long pause in pursuing him because of his condition.
Should Bosh finally recover from his blood clotting ailments, the Miami Herald writer considers the Lakers as the initial front-runner largely because of Bosh’s affiliation with his former agent Rob Pelinka.

The Lakers Still Uncertain Who They’ll Select in the Draft.
According to Chris McGee of @spectrumsportsnet -
"I absolutely do not think it's a foregone conclusion, I actually think it's probably 50/50, 60/40 in favor of Ball in the Lakers front office,” McGee said during an appearance on the Locked on Lakers podcast.
“Guys love De'Aaron Fox in that front office, because what's there not to love? The kid is one of the best athletes in the draft. He's 6'4, I know he's skinny but he's got good length. [Kentucky Head Coach John] Calipari will tell you he's as fast as John Wall with the ball.”
“Josh Jackson they love too, and so do I. So there's three really good guys you're going to be looking at, at number two,” McGee said.
"No one has ever come out in that front office and said ‘it's Lonzo,’ and they're not going to do that anyway, but people I talk to say without a doubt that those are the three guys they absolutely love,” (H/T SB Nation)

Charles Barkley (on @espn) says a win against the Warriors for another title would make him consider putting LeBron James at Kobe Bryant's level.

Hakeem Olajuwon: “I’ve worked with a lot of players, but the one who really capitalized on it the most is Kobe Bryant,” “When I watch him play, he’ll go down in the post comfortably, naturally, and he’ll execute it perfectly.”
*Note: Olajuwon has also worked with Dwight Howard, Tyson Chandler, the Lopez twins and LeBron James.
