After concluding my interview with Blake, I have a clearer perspective of what to expect from Ty Lawson. I can’t say that my expectations towards Lawson have changed much, but rather after the interview they are more concrete.
He is a player that will mostly benefit the Kings offensively by being a playmaker. He has the ability to score the ball but does most of his damage utilizing his speed and passing ability, which is good for a team that has DeMarcus Cousins and Rudy Gay.
As long as the 5’11” guard stays out of trouble, he should be able to rejuvenate his career. He seems pretty motivated to do so.
I don’t think Lawson will return to his All-Star caliber self, but I’m confident he will be better than he was last season. He most likely will start for the Kings when the season starts, and hopefully, he will be able to fulfill the expectations that I have for him and more.
