The Lakers' postseason run was a surprise, especially as one of the role players looked incredible, Rui Hachimura, who had some time to train and work out with Assistant Coach Phil Handy.

Now that all the offseason Hachimura has been putting up the hard work, including stepping back from the Japanese Basketball national team to skip the FIBA World Cup to focus on the purple and gold, the fans are expecting a lot of improvement from the wing.

The fans already believe Hachimura is similar to Kawhi Leonard, and with his summer workouts, they are trusting Rui to become an incredible player and be like a new and healthier version of Kawhi.

If Rui lives up to the hype and expectations set on him for the next campaign, he can also accomplish the goal the fans have set for him, winning the Most Improved Player of the Year award.

Rui Hachimura is set to be a starter for Coach Ham

Last season, Jarred Vanderbilt was the starting wing, but with what Hachimura has been able to show, coach Ham is considering using him as a starter according to reports by NBA insider Jovan Buha.
