    I have a great idea. Let’s do something a little bit different and discuss D;Angelo Russell.

      This is important.

        Aside from the familial implications, Jeanie Buss is in a no win situation here.

        If she gets her way, she is in full control of the team and while the fans would rejoice, a lot of people will perceive she chose Business over Family.

        This is Dr.Buss worst nightmare. Tragic.

          To Jeanie, the Lakers ARE her family -- every single fan, player, employee, etc. While her siblings share the same blood, the Lakers share a stronger bond with her. She has already demonstrated her willingness to sacrifice for her Lakers family (see ya, Phil). To Jeanie, the Lakers needs are more important than the individual petty ego of family members who would harm the Lakers as an organization. She’s clear in my books, you go gerl!!!

            I think Jeanie Buss is in a winning situation. LIke it or not, sports business is a man’s world (at this point in time). Jeanie needs to show that she can give as good as she gets, and then some, or some will simply perceive her as weak and walk all over her. What she’s done in the last week or two is showing that she can be understanding and give people a chance to prove themselves. Failing which, she has no problem making the tough decisions. If anything, Jeanie demonstrating a quick response looks good and that should make her siblings think twice about pulling off more shenanigans on her.

    Would anyone be surprised if Rob Pelinka suddenly changed HIS mind and withdrew his acceptance of the GM job? Why would he want to be in the middle of this with such a successful sports agency?

        Greed. Money and greed. Sadly, our storied franchise could be destroyed by it. They should sell the team

      This is actually somewhat depressing, not that I thought the Lakers had a shot at PG, just that Danny Ainge may pull this off.

        Could be huge mistake to trade the Nets pick hoping that PG will not bolt in 2018. The curse of Len Bias returns.

          It’s a big risk, alright.

          At least Butler has a couple years left before his PO.

      mcwhyne, your thoughts.

        From what some “expert” posted on Bleacher, PG is not signing an extension with anyone but Indy or the Lakers.
        Who knows if it’s accurate?

          Yeah but a BIRD in the hand, right …? Notice how the Celtics have acquired their legends in recent years. McKale and Ainge = KG. Bird and Ainge = ?

      So far, Brandon Knight is the best thing to come out of the Steve Nash deal for Phoenix. A world of good he has done them. The three second rounders they traded for turned out to be nothing. If they deal away Knight for an expring contract and a second rounder, it will turn out that the Nash deal was a wash for Phoenix. If the Lakers keep their first round pick this year, then it really will amount to not much for anyone.

      I’ve heard rumblings as well…We have to show it on the Court…I think he’d seriously consider it for his brand.

        Clear out some space for him and Boogie. It’s doable. Who knows.

          Yup.

          Shaving the Cap, is a realistic approach. Pelinka seems like a guy willing to stay in the mud for days with a finger on the trigger, so his reputattion says.

          Who’s going to take Deng or Moz?
          I fear we will have to package one of our youth in order to ship them off.

            Ingram is still on a Rookie deal in 2018

            Russell is still on a Rookie deal in 2018.

            Yup, it might take one of the kids to take them on…Or it might take that 1st Round Pick we got from Houston..

            Or next Summer our 2018 Pick.

            Pelinka is the one doing the honking, Matt. Let the man go to work. :)

            Best not worry about things that haven’t happened yet.

            That’s who the Kings became the Kings. :)

            BTW, this Game of Zones is hilarious.

      He is the one superstar I would be willing to trade some of our talent to land.
      Great to hear he might be interested in joining the Lakers down the road.
      The recent front office changes are going to make a huge difference.
