      Didn’t we learn anything about setting these idiotic timelines?

      “Why do all these cards say bicycle?”

      They won this year, more than last, just need to make another 10 game bump, unless we swing a trade.

      Lots of teams made big moves that did not pan out. Boogie in Big Easy stands out the most, but there could be some interesting deals out there if the Lakers are willing ot get creative and maybe wind up a bit lucky.

      Draft is-a-comin, first things first.

      You have to be lucky AND good. I’m sure they know that, and they know hope and chemistry sell tickets.
      Timelines are just talk.

      Lotta talk about all the problems in the NBA but attendance was up once again and ratings are still strong. These are the only numbers the owners & advertisers care about. They’ll probably tweek the schedule & twist some arms to make sure stars play in the marquee primetime games though….

        Yes, though Regional Ratings dropped significantly.

          Cuz the regions with substantial populations have generally crappy teams.

            Also why they want parity so badly. I might not watch the Lakers vs Knicks debacle on Spectrum but I’ll tune into OKC vs MIL on ESPN the same night to see Russ vs Giannis.

              Maybe because the majority is now a bunch of podunk owners who regularly outsmart the likes of Jeannie and Dolan at the negotiating table.

      One of the reasons why it would be interesting to move Ingram to the backcourt.

    Not liking the PG postgame comments one bit. If he’s this frustrated with his current squad then what the hell is gonna happen if he ends up with these youngins here? Is he trying to force a trade? Is he indicating he wants to go to a winner?

      Especially after missing an easy layup that could have closed the gap to 2 points in the final minutes. I didn’t like the comments about Lance either. Should keep that kind of stuff in house.

        Is Jimmy Butler still a viable target? IS Gordon Hayward dead set on Boston? In other words, if PG no longer seems as viable to us, whom do we target?

    So many moving pieces going into the off-season. All starts with the lottery on May 16th..gotta wait a month for that 1st domino to fall then go from there.

      Keep the pick and it opens up alotta options.

      Lose it and things become a little more difficult. Do Mag/Rob trot out this same roster again? Hard to see them staying pat after all this hype of a new era.

        The announcers for the Kings, I think talked about Metta buying a Bus for disabled youth group.

    Sounds like Magic & Rob are being very non-committal in these exit meetings so far…

      There’s hope!!!!! Not much, but some…the real question is: what playoff team REALLY needs Nick Young.

    • MongoSlade

      He would be foolish not to opt-out. Everybody’s got cap space and he’s not risking a whole lot at 5.6mill. Plus he’s coming off a good year. No-brainer. Conditions could be much worse next summer.

      Please opt out, Nick. Pretty please with sugar on top.

    • LakerTom (Publisher) 11:45 AM on April 13, 2017 Permalink | Log in to Reply

      Count me as one who would like to see Nick return but come off the bench as 6th man.
      I could see him not opting out so he could stay in LA and with a system that is great for him.
      Great 3-point shooter who has improved all of the other aspects of his game.

        His 3 point shooting during his career has been OK, he doesn’t rebound, gets very few assists and is a horrible defensive player despite all the BS hoopla about him improving in that department this season. He has been on a grand total of two playoff teams in his illustrious 12 year career, so he’s a loser. He’s business-like some of the time, but a clown most of the time. I hope he opts out, gets no other offers and plays in China next season. I don’t want him anywhere near the Lakers. I hope Magic and Pelinka praised him to the roof today and made him think he’s worth double what he’s due to earn next season. The best thing about keeping him this past season is that the Lakers didn’t waive and stretch him and might actually get away with getting him off the books cleanly.
