he is just doing MyPlayer irl
Spike Lee has been taking notes for 2k22.
Can’t wait until he old and bald, and starts coaching next year.
memes aside, skills-wise he walks the talk too. elite defender for his size, can create, can make clutch cuts to the rim for important points, and don’t even mention that sneaky bounce 😋
And he is the perfect compliment to LeBron (and thats coming from LeBron). Hes like a roided up smarter Delly lol.
The modern day Rodman.
I went to summer league when he won the chip and I remember being a fool and making a joke about him to my cousin that works for the clippers and he said “hey that guy right there is the real thing he can play don’t let the baldness fool you “ since that moment a few years ago Caruso never has ceased to amaze me . He’s the embodiment of hard work and determination.
THT is next 😏
even Rihanna wants him lmao
Imagine if they actually started dating irl lol
To get one step closer to lebron
AND HIS NAME IS ALEX CARUSOOOOOO
From the G-league to Rihanna
Sorry Rihanna he’s untouchable
Get those white diamonds ahha
Like, duh. What team wouldn’t want a 2ish mil/year guy that can consistently be a positive defensive presence way deep into the playoffs?
with hustle, heart, and no drama.
Imagine if he could up his 3pt% to 40% next season 😱
I want him to retire a laker. He's our boooooy
Same. I kinda wish he play his entire career with the Lakers.
Bald mamba 💪
Same man! Ever since the D’lo days I wanted a young guy that we drafted to play their whole career with us. I really hope Caruso is a Laker lifer.
What I’m afraid of is that after next season some team is gonna offer him a Delly like contract and AC won’t turn that shit down. AC a great role player but someone’s gonna overpay him.
He shouldn’t turn that shit down either. I love him on the lakers but you don’t turn that type of money down as a non-star player.
If he can get the bag like that, he better take that offer.
Tbh, I believe he would deserve it. 4yr/36 mil is somethin like what Delly got right? I could totally see a Texas team try to get their hometown boy with a deal like that
If a team is going to pay him bonkers money he should take it with both hand. I'll love if he stays but you have to be a generational talent to have a hope of a team to be loyal to you, even then teams aren't loyal (98 Bulls)
thats how it works for any young player who gets a ring, personally i hope the man gets paid he deserves it
He is a baller. And a winner Lakers should be the one to pay him
My hope would be that we could keep him on a relatively low salary, but with lots of off-court income opportunities that only a big market like LA can offer.
Couldnt be mad at the man for taking it unless its on some Ariza shit lol.
I have a strong feeling the Hornets will throw him a contract that's way too fat.
We could also work out a sign and trade too with his big money contract to benefit us too if that happened... 💪🏽
He is better than Delly. Being 6'5 is a world of diff vs 6'3
And this is fine. We can continually rehab + increase player value and sell high because it’s EASY to be good next to Bron and Brow.
thats the Lebron/Spurs classic. They make players that would only sniff 10min/game everywhere else championship pieces.
We can offer Danny Green money next off season, we have his bids too. He totally deserves if he bumps his 3pt a little
@Cuban stop being a bitch and lets trade Caruso for Luka straight up.
Maybe Luka + Cash Considerations
Made me lol
TOO FUCKING BAD, "Every Team"
Fuck you, no you can't have him.
No. We're keeping him
W.e you do keep this man. He's the perfect player for lebron/AD
Only for Jaylen Brown or better.
Jaylen Brown AND Jayson Tatum plus some picks. Then it would be fair.
Shit.. I’d still keep Caruso just because I like his energy even if JB is better. He’s our guy. Plus he’s a lot cheaper. We can’t afford anyone like JB or better when we already have 2 max players.
It's now break up the Lakers roster season by other teams. This tends to happen to championship teams ever year out of spite, but specially to the Lakers. You got the rest of the league trying to tear down the champs, just like when other teams gun for you every time they play you, so every game Lakers play is a spot light game for the other team and it takes even that much more effort just to be at par, 82 times a season. People seem to forget the changes to the cba since last time Lakers won the chip in 2010, were actually put in place to prevent a "Lakers" by the other sorry ass owners.
What do you mean bro. For the 5 Championships prior to the one last week, the majority of the teams stuck together. A player or two would come/leave, but we’d still have the core. The Lakers can pay and many players both love LA and the chance to be a Laker player.
I want him. Please don't trade, thanks.
the hot chick in your highschool class guys wanted to sit next to lol. I hope Caruso stays longer with the Lakers
No he’s ours
I love what Caruso brings. Guys like him help teams win championships. Some team, somewhere will probably overpay him unfortunately. I can't blame him if he takes it when that time comes.
Don't you dare trade this man!
I have a buddy who still rolls his eyes when I talk about AC. Go ahead and put your head in the sand. Dude can ball.
Dont trade him, please, whose dick do I have to suck to stop this discussions
Rob Pelinka? Jennie buss? I don’t know.
No! Our Caruso!
First time I ever saw him was the first super hyped Lonzo summer league game... you could tell instantly Carushow had something about him.. Lonzo got the game winner and hype but Carushow was the player of the game
Nah he’s our baby
Of course was can only trust his word on that, but i am glad the Lakers got him and i hope he stays there for a good number of seasons.
Caruso is a hard worker. Not someone that’s really blessed with a natural basketball talent but just a guy with a mamba mentality. That pays off!
No you can’t have him
Who wouldn't want the goat
Id love for him to stay but at the same time...
dont trade him.
thank you pistons for turning down that trade offer for drose
THAT'S OUR ACCOUNTANT
I don’t know why the lakers are looking for a starting PG. they have him and his name is ALEX CARUSOOO
Even if he someday plus for the Clippers or Celtics, I will root for this man. I absolutely love the way he plays basketball. He just wants to disrupt big time players with his defensive play and catchy a few lobs to show everyone that “This white boy got hops — and I ain’t talking about brewing.”
as a rockets fan seeing what house did to us and what caruso did for y’all (skipping sisters wedding to play) made my respect for him go way up
Memes aside, he's cheap while being a net positive on the court, especially for teams that have built in priority scorers.
Every dynasty has a player like this. He is our modern michael cooper.
God damn we gotta pay him when he’s a FA next season
but they were all saying laker fans are weird for hyping a school teacher?? now look whos laughing
There's no way the GOAT will leave the Lakers.
He’s definitely one of those secret sauce players. I hope we keep him. We need the
AS THEY SHOULD. This the man tho. How much is his contract and when's the renewal period? Karuso could be our 3rd guy ya kno. All this stuff we're worried about.
If he could get his 3 point avg to 35%, he’d be ridiculous.
3rd guy???? He did well but he’s not the 3 in big 3 lmao
every front office is full of nefews like us!!
I don't think that statement is accurate
Lol @ OKC front office. Signing these players like Westbrick, that bearded guy, KD, the bald mamba, and letting them go.
Why are you talking shit about westbrook lol. He was clearly injured. Enjoy the ship.
Last night I couldn't fall asleep because I was thinking of Alex. I was thinking how important he is to the team, how he's the glue in so many ways. Winning or lossing by 20, it doesn't matter. Garbage time, it doesn't matter. He always hustles, he always has the energy. He really doesn't give a fuck, and because of that I think he's irreplaceable. I was thinking how I want him to retire a Laker great, how he should go even more HAM in the offseason and come back even better. I can't wait for next season, but please never let this man go.
I think of him every night before I sleep
Mr. Alex "Intangibles" Caruso for 40 million. Do we have 50 million – 52 million?
seriously, i didn't know Mike Penberthy is one of our assistant coach...
Go away, you all had your chances when he was in the G League
The LA Lakers will win it all again Next year 🤟😎🤟yeah I said it 🔥🎸🔥 hate it it love it 🏀 💪🏽🧔🏽👑23
Hate it or love it 🏀 Ballers only 👣🏀💪🏽😎
In other news, water is wet.
That’s my dude! Been following him since his two way end of 2016-2017 and man never imagined he would be here. Proving the haters and doubters (me included especially how he would deal with the playoff atmosphere) wrong.
Bet you even the raging Houston podcast guy is wondering how the Rockets can get Caruso.
Pay the man his money
Why does everyone say “cerebral player” all the time, lol, it irks me. Just say smart player, Lolol.
Lakers better offer him better deals in the future.
Bruhhh Caruso out-hustles anybody in the league. Defensively he's on point, he sacrifices his body like no other laker, and is the first on the ground for every ball and always in the mix of things. He plays that scrappy sort of basketball that every team needs. People who don't understand basketball look at his ppg and don't get the hype not understanding his impact beyond just scoring and stats period. If you know the game and watch him play you see how valuable he is to this laker team. Extremely high IQ. CarusGOAT has himself 1 more believer after this season.
I feel like this is new information which if true, makes me impressed that the front office didn't let it leak.
Real talk if he could improve his 3 point shooting he could turn lakers into big 3.
Caruso is who Pat bev wishes he was
Don't let the Goat go. He's a Laker 4 life :O
The better Dwade. If Dwade and Caruso both made all-star, Lebron picking Caruso first.
Of course they all wanted the GOAT. Who wouldn’t?
He is the GOAT after all
He’ll be exposed when he doesn’t have AD and Lebron
I mean when he didn’t play with Bron & AD on the Lakers he had 30 points against the clippers ... he can score the ball but not like a consistent elite guard but what I’ve seen from him I feel like if he was starting & had a different role he could average AT LEAST 10-12 points
Booker for Caruso, who says no!?
Way too overrated. The guy is a liability on offense.
Oh wow another mediocre white man being held up as some sort of great player. When blacks do the things he has done nobody cares, but let a fucking cumskin actually attempt to play instead of whatever the rest of his kind do and it’s the second coming of some Dusty ass Vanilla Coke mfer.
The fuck"s wrong with you?
Excuse me wtf?
Cry more, snowflake.
