    Who’s watching the PG special on ESPN right now?
    I need the play by play!

      You can replay it on http://www.espn.com/

      Went over Indiana days, then the injury, then the trade to OKC. Then the loss in the playoffs. Then a couple of weeks off in LA looking for the right fit. Says front office is going to be a huge part of the decision. Excited to go through this journey. That was part 1.

    According to Cowherd, he was told that LeBron’s wife has narrowed down the options to Cleveland and L.A.
    We will see shortly just how much power she holds.

      When it comes to the NBA, I have no regard for Colin Cowherd’s knowledge, “sources,” or opinions. He should stick to college football.

      Well, to be fair, it’s all rumor and speculation until LeBron tells everyone who he’s signing with.

        Do you think the Vegas odds for the Lakers landing him is a sucker bet? I bet a large percentage of bettors come from LA.

          I haven’t really followed the history of Vegas odds and their correlation to NBA predictions, so I can’t give an informed answer.

      Like the old saying goes: If Mama ain’t happy then ain’t nobody happy!
      She wasn’t happy in Miami until Lebron moved her mother down there.
      Kinda like what Kobe had to do with Vanessa’s mom too.

      But yeah….Cowherd is the worst.

    I guess y’all have flip flopped on adding LeQueen.

      I don’t read where Tom is saying he personally wants LeBron James to be on the Lakers. He is just suggesting how Magic should pitch him if the Lakers try to snag him. There’s a difference.

      • LakerTom (Publisher) 12:30 PM on June 8, 2018 Permalink | Log in to Reply

        Thank you, Keen. If the Lakers would make that pitch and LeBron bought it, then I would be in favor of the Lakers adding LeBron. My thing is not changing our identity and how we play or trading away our young talent to win now. Let’s win more later.

        But aside from my personal feelings about LeBron, I think any superstar, including LeBron, wants to know how teams recruiting him plan to use him, why they think that he is the key to their winning a championship, why he should join their team.

        You don’t go into the meeting saying we’ll do whatever you want, LeBron. That’s like Trump winging it with North Korea. Instead, you share a vision with LeBron how you see him being the catalyst that could elevate PG and the young Lakers team into a perennial championship contender and let him play longer.

          Not sure why we would have to trade any of our young? As far as how we play? How do we play? Five years of losing, perhaps change can be a good thing?

          • LakerTom (Publisher) 1:02 PM on June 8, 2018 Permalink | Log in to Reply

            LOL. Remember the Kevin Love for Andrew Wiggins trade? You telling me the LeBron wouldn’t want Lakers to make a Kawhi Leonard for Brandon Ingram and Josh Hart deal It’s the next logical step that Magic and Rob would look for. And probably the right move.

            The Lakers now have a clear identity and style of play. How they play is what everybody loves about this Lakers team. The fast pace, switching defense, constant ball and player movement. That’s Lonzo and Luke and I don’t want to change that identity and style of play.

            I have no problem with LeBron coming aboard to join in playing the same way we are. I think it’s how he would prefer to play. It’s more fun and entertaining for the players as well as the fans. What I think would be a huge mistake would be to throw that away to switch to a LeBron centric style like he is playing on the Cavs. That’s not the LeBron I want to see on the Lakers.

            Finally, we don’t need to sign to LeBron to continue on a strong upward trend. We’re good enough to make the playoffs next season without any new additions. Give us PG and we’ll be a top four team in the West. That’s a more reasonabkle and sustainable game plan than signing a LeBron James who might be approaching the end of his career sooner than thought, especially if he doesn’t scale back his effort and style of play to preserve his body.

            Maybe you should play back the last couple of minutes of Game 3 when passive LeBron almost seemed content to pass the ball to Cavs teammates so they would miss shots and everybody could see how little help he had to beat the Dubs. LeBron should have tried to attack the basket every time he had the ball down the stretch but he opted otherwise. He’s LeBron, not LeGod.

              who cares?
              if LeBron comes to the Lakers, he’ll have to deal with a much stronger organization than Gilbert’s whiny ole Cavs. he won’t be able to strong arm the team in the same way, unless the Lakers suddenly can’t win games. if that happoens, Lakers fans will have the rope ready long before LeBron does.

              actually, the Kevin Love for Wiggins trade worked out pretty well for the Cavs.

              Wiggins is another example of how wrong the internet can be. remember “riggin’ for Wiggins”?

              also, the Spurs would need to want BI more than they want Kawhi for that to happen. if they did, i would really be extra cautious as to what is actually wrong with KL.

              much ado about nothing.

              i’m not a huge LeBron fan, but he seems like a pretty smart, knowledgeable player who can play any style. imo, he would rather not play the game that he’s playing in Cleveland, if he could play a more open style and win more.

              If there is one person on earth that LBJ will not be able to play, that’s be 5-Time Champ Magic Johnson.

            • LakerTom (Publisher) 1:25 PM on June 8, 2018 Permalink

              I don’t think there is any style that LeBron can’t play. The issue is what style is he willing to play. Hopefully, Magic and Rob can pitch and LeBron can buy playing with Lonzo and for Luke. That could work. I would hope if that didn’t appeal to LeBron, the Lakers would say thank you and move on and not suddenly start compromising and talking about a different coach, style, or trading young players for win now vets.

              I agree, LBJ meets Magic’s criteria.

              Magic took the job to restore the Lakers’ dominance. He’s not giving any player the keys to the gym. My only issues with LeBron are salary and longevity.

    In case you missed it, this is what PG13 did today:
    36pts, 7reb, 1stl, 8-11 from 3, 65% fg

    Mitchel is going to be an All Star. I was very impressed with his first playoff game. Hopefully, that foot tweak won’t swell up too large.

      Paul George is a proven playoff performer. This OKC team is obviously built for the playoffs. They could go to the WCF if the ball bounces their way. In terms of PG being a Laker? I think he has already made his mind up to stay put.

        Russ, PG, & Adams is a helluva core and then they lose Melo next summer. All depends on if he likes it there or if he wants to come “home”.

          Name me the last superstar other than LeBron (who already played in Cleveland) to came home regardless of the situation. Actually, in LeBron’s case, Kyrie was already there and he obviously knew that Kevin Love was coming, so it was still a “super team” situation.

      Next year will be Paul’s 9th. If he signs a one year deal he will be eligible for 35% of the cap the following year. He may choose to stay one more year to see what happens in OKC. The only reason I could see him signing a multi year is he had that terrible injury a few years ago and may want the security.

    Kawhi not coming back to Los Spurs for Playoffs

    http://www.nba.com/article/2018/04/15/report-kawhi-leonard-not-expected-return-spurs-playoffs

    I think now I’m leaning towards him not coming back to them at all. His actions are saying that he’s moving on.

      Better chance of Kawhi coming here than Paul George, but if it’s next season, it will cost us and he would have to give the Lakers assurances that he’s in it for the long haul.
