    According to Cowherd today, KD to the Knicks is 100% and he’s already contacting other players to join him.

    Still time for Jeanie to make the right decision and go outside of the Laker Family to bring in a PBO to right this ship.
    There’s still time for LeBron to lure Kawhi.
    Maybe we end up with Kyrie instead.
    All is not lost.
    We are down, but we are not out.

    Well, there you have it.
    Another stupid move by our bumbling “leadership.”
    We getting nobody now and AD has already changed his mind to come here.
    It’s time to sell Buss Family!!!!!!!!!

      Not bringing in someone intelligent from the outside like David Griffin, to run this thing will be seen as the last nail in Jeanie’s coffin.
      I bet by next summer, the rest of the Buss kids force her to sell.

  • mclyne32 (Director) 4:21 PM on May 3, 2019 Permalink  

    Kemba, Vucevic, Tobias or Jimmy Butler?

    If you were running things, what order would you guys put these four?
    Second question: With who’s currently in charge, what order would they put them in?

    Stephen A. said this morning that he’s hearing that BOTH Kawhi and Durant will sign with the Clippers this summer.

        True, but how devastating would this be?
        Right now, they have $59 Million in cap space.

          They’re the better franchise right now, we made one splash signing who wanted to come here, anyhow. In my opinion our terrible track record in regards to signing free agents is still in full effect.

            One of the 2 would have to take less than max value unless the Clippers dump some deals (which they would assuredly do if this were to even be a possibility) but I don’t see KD coming down south. I think he goes East. But who knows, have to wait and see how the playoffs bear out.

            • mclyne32 (Director) 3:19 PM on April 23, 2019 Permalink

              I too will be shocked if he stays out West. It’s going to either be the Nets or the Knicks.

    @MM
    Just finished watching the Toronto/Magic game. You are right about Siakam. That kid is really good!
    Vucevic was mostly invisible all game.
    The Magic’s defense Is for real.
    I was also impressed with Van Fleet. He’s a pretty good backup PG.

    Who do the current crop of NBA players believe is the GOAT?

      They all take a hit to their legacy as they’re in decline. At around the same stage of his career, Kobe took a dysfunctional team (albeit one with still prime Pau and D12) to the 8 seed and pretty much cost himself a graceful exit. Take out the post Achilles years, and the gap between Kobe and Lebron isn’t quite so wide.

      • mclyne32 (Director) 10:08 AM on April 9, 2019 Permalink | Log in to Reply

        Agreed.
        I just found this interesting that the players view Kobe and LeBron on the same level for the GOAT.
        I always put much higher value in what they think than the talking heads.

    Rob Pelinka is so hated amongst other NBA Front Office personnel that some won’t even take his calls:

        Not me- I knew nothing about this cat other than he was Kobe’s agent.
        By the way, one is allowed to change his mind about somebody once new evidence is presented.

    • LakerTom (Publisher) 10:35 AM on April 5, 2019 Permalink | Log in to Reply

      While both Bob Myers and Rob Pelinka were player agents making the jump to general managers, their personalities and reputations among fellow GM’s were nowhere near the same. For one thing, the Warriors had Jerry West as a consultant to support Myers who was empowered to make the decisions but listened to West’s sage advice.

      Pelinka was named GM but everybody knew that Magic was the one who was going to be making the decisions and the Lakers had nobody of the quality and experience as West to help guide Johnson or Pelinka. Big difference. And as Matt says, there are many valid reasons to have changed your mind regarding Pelinka’s hire with the decisions the front office made.

      Keeping the front office structure that had Jim Buss as head of basketball operations over Mitch Kupchak as general manager was a mistake. The GM should be making the decisions in concert with the head coach. That’s the formula followed by all of the top teams in the league.

        Be hard to trade LeBron and his $37 million salary to the bottom feeder team who is going to win the right to draft Zion. Aside from matching salaries, LeBron is not going to help one of those teams win anything. This would only work if a team like Boston won the lottery. There are also questions how good Zion will be.

        Aside from that, the trade would hardly help the Lakers, who would be doomed to be a lottery team for several more years. Even trading Zion for AD and the rest of the team would not create a championship contender. Just more crap from Colin Cowherd, the crap king. Totally unrealistic suggestion.

        If you want to trade LeBron, you look for a team on the verge who could compete for a championship with LeBron and who has something the Lakers might covet. I’m not even sure there is a team that falls into that category. Truth is likely we are stuck with LeBron until he retires. Focus on what we can do to make that work rather than silly unrealistic ideas like trading him.

          Sorry Tom, you may feel this is silly, but many die hard Laker fans would welcome this with open arms.
          I’m not saying it would happen, but I would like it to.
          You just may change your mind after you see what the great Maginka brings us this summer.
          I hope I’m wrong, but our FO hasn’t been considered even competent for a seven years and running.

            Didn’t mean anything personal about calling trading LeBron silly, Matt, and I’m right there with you about Maginka. In fact, I would like to see Pelinka fired right now and replaced by someone respected like David Griffin. And Zion is going to be a force in the NBA but will still take time to become a star.

            • mclyne32 (Director) 7:04 PM on March 31, 2019 Permalink

              Fair enough, Tom. I’m just frustrated with this mess.

          Tom, it was wonderful to be on the site. Good Luck.

          Talking about LeBron being traded is silly, just as it was silly for MSNBC and CNN to lie about Russia.

          No evidence, loses threads and silliness.

          I can go to the Onion for that.

            Why can’t you just debate the proposal respectfully?
            I know since you are a big LeBron fan that taking emotion out of it is hard but there is no denying that LeBron isn’t a declining asset and Zion isn’t an appreciating one.

              Zion might bust. Lebron will remain an elite offensive player for his remaining 2 years in LA. Better to pair him with someone and at least become relevant than go into year 7 of a rebuild.

            • mclyne32 (Director) 8:21 PM on March 31, 2019 Permalink

              Have you been watching Zion play.
              He’s Julius Randle with an outside shot, 3x the athleticism, a better handle, and better passing. He’s not going to be a bust.
              The probability of LeBron missing games over the next two seasons due to injury is much, much higher than Zion busting.

              They ain’t trading Lebron, just get it out of your head. Mostly because no one would do it, and sure as shizz wouldn’t give up Zion for him. The best Lebron could net you is some bad contracts and future draft picks at a destination of his choosing. It’s no more realistic than they moving off Kobe at the same point in his career.

              Where’s the proof, Sean?

              Vote his out, you want him gone. Collusion not gonna happen.

              Obstruction? Find proof.

              I despise the man and what he represents.

              If there’s no proof, the Dems need to STFU and beat him in 2020.
