Now this is going to be fun.

I’m on vacation this week, but I had to come back for some news related to the Los Angeles Lakers so paradigm shifting that it just may mean the team is a title contender THIS YEAR.

“What could be so meaningful?” you ask, with the innocent wonder of a child about to discover that they get presents on their birthday. Well I’m going to tell you, but first you may want to take a seat.

The preceding was parody, but in all seriousness if Timofey ever flashes this type of range in the NBA that would obviously be helpful to the Lakers.
