For three seasons, they’ve been nowhere. Now they’re coming from everywhere.
Larry Nance Jr. rolling down the lane, Nick Young falling into the stands. Julius Randle bouncing off the glass.
For three seasons, they’ve been one player. Now, they’re endless players.
D’Angelo Russell with the ball. Jordan Clarkson with the soar. Lou Williams with the scores.

But quickly, stunningly, they are fun again, and, man, did they have a blast Friday night at Staples Center in beating up on The Greatest Team Ever.
