    Deng for Rubio. Not sure why so many are down on Clarky? Gives a lot off the bench.

      I like Jordan a lot, and I don’t think folks are down on him; they’re just looking at assets to make the PG thing work. And Deng for Rubio would be sweet, and might work, considering Thibs likes him.

      Deng gonna run the point?
      They just traded away their pg of the future Kris Dunn
      Plus..Rubio doesn’t clear the cap space for 2018.

        I’d do it. He’s a lot more moveable than Deng. Thibs ain’t a moron though.

        They are shopping Rubio. Just thought the presence of Deng for Thibs would be a blessing for their team…..???? LOLOLOLO!

          Except the Wolves have to pay Wiggins next fall, Deej. Those 3 would take up 50% of their cap space.

        I remember Mitch saying it was easy to find shooters, and it’s the complementary skills that are hard to come by. You know, like defense. Guess that’s why the Dubs are so good.

    Aside from money, which PG ain’t broke and won’t be wherever he goes. Let me say that Cleve and Indy are not nice (unless you like ice-cold) during the season. Los Ang is VERY NICE all the time! Been to all 3, I’ll take Los Ang!

    Gonna be so interesting to see if Magic still has the magic! I think he’s thinking about being a Super-team asap! May or may not work out. Hope we don’t give all our kids away. Wonder if Lopez stays or goes in a trade?

      Seems pretty clear that Earv didn’t take this job to sit around hoping we make the playoffs and waiting for the youngins to “develop”. If his message wasn’t getting through to these guys before I guarantee you they understand like a mofo after what just happened.

      The Judge and the Kracken! Mantle and Maris! Man, you got to love this Yankees team, DJ. It’s so much fun watching young kids from our system having break out seasons than a bunch of overpaid free agents. Reminds me of the late 90’s Yankees teams led by you and a bunch of homegrown kids. With the pipeline still full, this one smacks of a similar future dynasty.

      What’s happening with the Yankees this year is exactly what I think could happen to the Lakers next year if we nail the draft and come away with Lonzo Ball and a second player like Jordan Bell or DJ Wilson and refrain from trading away the kids other than what is needed to move Deng’s and Mozgov’s contracts. Silly to say, but it’s about patience and “trusting the process.”

      There’s a pattern with the Yankees that the Lakers need to follow. Look at how patience with Hicks has turned out. Judge is going to be the Yankees next superstar. OK, I will say it, the next Reggie Jackson and Derek Jeter rolled into one. And anybody who thinks Gary Sanchez smoking hot preview last year was a fluke just got the wake up call. Yankees have two hottest young position players in the game. And they will have free agency mega bucks in 2019.

      Draft Lonzo Ball and he will make every player on the Lakers 25% better. He will transform us from a high lottery team to a low playoff team. We will struggle on defense and with turnovers but will be a top-10 offense and lead the league in points, assists, and 3-point shooting with Russell and Ball leading the way in all 3 categories. That’s the kind of impact that Jason Kidd had his rookie season and I think Lonzo Ball can have for the Lakers his rookie season.

        Yes! Might be the future home of Brycey baby! Yep let’s keep young with the Lakers and buy next summer! I mistakenly thought Cashy was bringing up GletborTorres, not just yet. Feel bad for Headly, but we can’t have our 3rd base spot with a .230 with 3 hrs player.

        PS-Was a bit concerned with Sanchy, but he’s for real.

      You two need to reel in your Yankee dongs. They’re not all that. My Dodgers would wipe the outfield with them.can’t touch Kershaw or Jansen. Then there’s Puig, Turner, Pederson, Seager, Bellinger, Gonzalez, etc.

  • DJ2KB24

    DJ2KB24 4:04 PM on June 10, 2017 Permalink  

    LT, I get to watch many Yankee games and saw (heard) Cashman say bringing up Torreyes may happen sooner than later. We got to sit Headless and Carter. Hope Bird pans out to what we hope. Sanchey wacking now, looks good at bat and at Catch (heck of an arm)!

          Thompson and Love are not bringing it. Wouldn’t be surprised to see him (Love) moved after the season ends.

            He did have 13 boards and 6 steals, and if Kyrie and LeBron are going to play a lot of iso, he isn’t going to get his share of shots (only 9). I thought Love played well tonight. Tristan Thompson though? 0 pts, 3 rebounds in 23 minutes. He wins the Jon Koncak Award tonight!

              Yep. Kyrie and LeBron need help. Love’s shot wasn’t falling. 1-9 isn’t impetus to chuck up more.

      Most of it has to do with KD coming to the Dubs and creating a team that is unstoppable.
      If they can collectively remain healthy, they should win the next two after this one.
      Hopefully, by then, we will have a squad that can compete.

      Well LBJ is THE best, but when the team you beat a year ago adds KD35, gonna be tough to overcome. Was thinking if KD was on Cavs, how bad the score would be opposite, bout the same. He brings a difference of 15-20 points.

      Thanks, DJ and Peter,

      We’re blessed because we have 3 grandkids who live one house away from us. They’re in the house every day since my son is a software programmer who works from one of our bedrooms. We’re also finishing a remodel of our master bedroom so the list of to-dos are never ending. Hard to get used to going out and picking the kids up from school and going for ice cream on a Thursday afternoon but I’m going to do my best to adjust from 40 years of being a workaholic and serial entrepreneur to just being a retired old fart.

      So I know you’re retired and also Nuggets. There must be other retirees on the blog considering the ages and opinions (just kidding) of the posters. Who else has retired? LOL. We can share movie and stock tips.

            Don’t, Seely. I worked until I was 72. You just keep going and suddenly you’re there. At least that’s how it was for me. Hopefully, you will be smart and do it earlier and live a more balanced life than I did as a workaholic.

    Did anyone mention to Van Gundy that even 8 straight Finals puts Curry 34, Durant 33, Green and Thompson 32. Next season do you think Durant ain’t gonna want MAX and how bout Curry, MAX, duh. Green and Thompson are at 35M between them. Are you sure JVG that the age works along with the money and NO INJURIES?
