In a recent interview with Brandon “Scoop B” Robinson, Lakers legend James Worthy expressed his enthusiasm for the roster put together by LA general manager Rob Pelinka for the upcoming season. Worthy specifically pointed out Lakers guard Gabe Vincent as a player to watch.
Worthy believes that Vincent, who previously played for the Miami Heat, will make a significant impact for the Lakers. According to Worthy, Vincent is a reliable and talented point guard who will seamlessly fit into the team.
Vincent’s journey to the NBA has been unconventional. After going undrafted in 2018, he spent two years in the G League before securing a contract with the Miami Heat. Vincent played a crucial role in the Heat’s unexpected run to the NBA Finals last season.
During the playoffs, Vincent elevated his performance and showcased his abilities. He had impressive games against the Denver Nuggets, with 19 points on 50 percent shooting in Game 1 and 23 points on 67 percent shooting in Game 2.
Following his successful stint in Miami, Vincent signed a three-year, $33 million deal with the Lakers during the summer. The Lakers have also made other notable signings, including Christian Wood, Jaxson Hayes, Taurean Prince, and Cam Reddish.
LeBron James’ response to the constant trash talk from opponents has also been making headlines recently.
