Talen “THT Patrol” Horton-Tucker: is he another one of those end-of-season, end-of-bench Lakers players who has an okay stretch of games right before the playoffs and then doesn’t even get another NBA contract? Or is he one of those end-of-season, end-of-bench Lakers players who actually ends up having a role with the team the next season?
Since I can’t actually think of any players who meet the second set of criteria I listed, I’m going with the first outcome: THT will play sparingly next season, and then that will be it for him. Just like Lakers legends Vander Blue, Darius Morris, and Jabari Brown, Talen Horton-Tucker will end up parlaying his minimal NBA experience into a lucrative contract in a European country that ends in “-ia”. This is just a speculation based on nothing at all because I don’t watch Laker games, I DEFINITELY don’t watch G-League games, and I don’t have a clear idea of how THT plays other than what I see in the highlight videos I make.
Speaking of the highlight videos I make, the only reason I included THT’s assists in this vid was because I wanted to see with my own eyes the player known as “Cacok”. I’m going to look up Cacok’s first name for the first time right now and report back.
I also learned from making this video that Cacok is not pronounced “Kukoc”. This entire project has been a real learning experience for DTB.
