    Always loved the old Al Davis’ Oakland Raiders. Seems Magic is a fan too. This bunch is just as quirky.

    Those Indy boys are nuts. Remember when Magic tried to recruit Reggie Miller? Another LA guy who lost out on rings.

      It’s not rational (who is when we’re fans) but Rondo is way up there in my hated celtics list. Way up there. It would be like selling my soul kind of celtic hatred.

    A lot of sense from my Kansas City HS teacher:

    A Little Learning

    by Alexander Pope

    A little learning is a dangerous thing ;
    Drink deep, or taste not the Pierian spring :
    There shallow draughts intoxicate the brain,
    And drinking largely sobers us again.
    Fired at first sight with what the Muse imparts,
    In fearless youth we tempt the heights of Arts ;
    While from the bounded level of our mind
    Short views we take, nor see the lengths behind,
    But, more advanced, behold with strange surprise
    New distant scenes of endless science rise !
    So pleased at first the towering Alps we try,
    Mount o’er the vales, and seem to tread the sky ;
    The eternal snows appear already past,
    And the first clouds and mountains seem the last ;
    But those attained, we tremble to survey
    The growing labours of the lengthened way ;
    The increasing prospect tires our wandering eyes,
    Hills peep o’er hills, and Alps on Alps arise !

    Or as she said “some people read the first line and realize they should shut up now.

          I’d rather get Cousins,

          • LakerTom (Publisher) 10:38 AM on May 30, 2018 Permalink | Log in to Reply

            I don’t think Klay ain’t coming. He’s signing an extension at a huge discount this summer according to everything I hear in NorCal. I don’t think the Lakers will pursue Cousins because of the risks involved and questions about his fit for a team that wants to push the pace and switch everything.

        • LakerTom (Publisher) 10:36 AM on May 30, 2018 Permalink | Log in to Reply

          Yes, seriously. That $25-30M will be extremely well spent. The percentage this represents of our total salaries will be in proper proportion once all these rookie contracts come due and we go way over the cap to keep the team together. The bench is going to play 24-33% of the time in a game. I would rather at this point in time add a couple of players who could be 6MOY candidates like Thomas and Smart than chase a superstar and have a stripped down bench. The Conference Finals showed benches are elite teams’ Achilles.

          It’s more believing that it’s depth that will determine championships in the superteam era we’re in. Locking in impact players like Isaiah Thomas and Marcus Smart for your bench is how the Lakers can set themselves up to have a dominant bench with Hart and Kuzma. We can pay to do this because of how many players we have on rookie deals. My bet is we will go over the cap this summer to take advantage of Randle and Thomas Bird rights. Once we go over, it will be a decade before we go under again. From that point on, it will about the tax threshold, not the salary cap.

    Who is the 2nd best player in the league? Whoever you pick… imagine what LeBron could do with their team?

    Imagine LBJ in place of MJ on those Bulls team. Rings. Now imagine MJ on this Cavs team. Ain’t no way MJ carries this Cav team to the Finals.

          We will never know but I do know MJ was surrounded with more talent than LeBron’s best teams and no star has ever carried a squad this horrible. MJ is the greatest but LeBron is inching closer considering all factors.

            Umm … Bron did have 2 all-stars in Kyrie and KLove when he won the chip, so it ain’t like he’s been completely alone the whole time.

              therealhtj 9:32 AM on May 28, 2018 Permalink

              Wade and Bosh and Kyrie and KLove brought at least close to what Pip and Rodman did and arguably more than Pip and Ho Grant.

              Not to take away what Lebron’s doing, but prior to this run, there’s always been that extra little something missing that MJ had. Call it a timeliness or other urgency, but Lebron shrank in the moment where MJ shined. This year, with this bunch that narrative is changing.

              If he really wanted to be more competitive, he shouldn’t have railroaded the team into the horrific contracts he made them sign to his agency’s clientele.

            Well, we will never know for sure, that is true…was just asking for your opinion, NBA…Lebron is def one of the best of all time but you gotta look at the competition he has faced in the playoffs this time around…it is hardly a given that MJ couldnt have beaten the Pacers/Raps/Celts with Lebron’s current supporting cast..

        There’s no way Kobe is not included. If someone’s gotta be excluded, I’d say Russell, because his success was largely due to playing with 4 HOFers. Then, there’s also a case to be made for Magic.

        That is true and I really hope the Rockets win Game 7, Tate…my low expectations stem from the fact that , while the Cavs did win without Love, the Warriors are better than the Celtics and , if CP3 is out & the rest of the team plays like they did in Game 6, I don’t trust Harden as much to bring ’em home like Lebron ( or Kobe )…perhaps because of his awful performance in an elimination game against the Spurs last yr…we’ll see, he’s certainly capable of putting the team on his back..

Not sure Bron wanted to take that shot under THAT kinda pressure. That’s all I’m sayin’. Like therealhtj had mentioned earlier, Bron has shrunk in more than a few of those ‘moments’ compared to MJ or Mamba.

      Amit, I think the Rockets can use Capela and put Draymond and/or Durant in foul trouble. If Harden, Gordon and Ariza are knocking down 3s they will make a game of it.

    • LakerTom (Publisher) 9:04 AM on May 28, 2018 Permalink | Log in to Reply

      LeBron is unbelievable. The worst supporting cast to ever make the Finals. Kudos to LeBron. It’s an argument that can never be resolved but LBJ is making a strong case that he is the GOAT but is it really a strong case considering whom he beat. The Pacers, Raptors, and then undermanned Celtics?

      Of course, beating a team without its two superstars doesn’t really qualify as a world shaking event everyone is making it out to be. The truth will be reveled when he loses to whichever team comes out of the West. I’ll give him one miracle game in Cleveland before he falls in five games.

      That will be the series that tells LeBron that he has to stay in the East if he wants a chance to win. Morey may not want to tear up the Rockets after their great effort against the Dubs. 76ers aren’t going to want to take the ball out of Simmons hands.

      Which leaves the Cavs. Time for LeBron to be a man and sign his supermax team and stop being such a freakin’ mercenary who thinks the entire league revolves around him. I want to root for a team. Not some quasi-basketball god who thinks he is bigger than any franchise.

      For the greatest individual efforts didn’t didn’t end in a championship. For me carrying the Lakers to the playoffs in 2006 and 2007 was the greatest feat of all time. The Lakers started Smush, Kwame, Luke and Lamar. The biggest heartbreak for me was game 6 2006. Lakers up 3-2 when Nash throws up a total brick and it bounces out to Thomas who hits a 3 to send the game to over time. If Steve does what he normally did and make the shot we win. If it rolls around the rim and falls off we win. It took a terrible shot to beat us.

      But as big as Kobe was in 2006 he was even bigger in 2007. The Lakers were injury riddled that year. Kobe put the team on his back and averaged 40 for March. Including a 4 game stretch of 65, 60, and two 50 point games. His 50 plus streak ended when he only had 43 the next game. I remember being ticket off at him because he cost us a lottery pick LOL. The sad thing for me is because we were not a good team he didn’t win the MVP either year when he was clearly the best in the world.

        I think Steph just got tired of the Rockets switching so he guards Harden and decides he’s had enough. Time to remind the Rockets just who he is: the best shooter the game has ever seen.

        Guard this, bang!

      Naw, Rockets just had an off shooting night. Don’t have a dog in this fight, my disdain for Pechulia and Green is equal to that for Harden and D’Antoni.

        I can’t stand Green either and don’t have much respect for Durant ever since he cowardly joined the Warriors and because he is so thin skinned. But I can’t stand Harden or D’Antoni as well so I’m just rooting for great games which we haven’t seen yet.

          I hear ya, but on the Court he’s got the Mamba Mentality.

          Yup has some of the biggest Rabbit Ears I’ve ever seen.

          He can talk about being like Bird and Kobe…on the Court…off the Court Larry and Kobe gave zero fucks about how the World perceived them.

            Mamba Mentality?
            he wishes. he’s been trying to copy that since the Olympics.

              Good chance Green will end up winning more rings than Mamba.
              He is the heart and soul of one of the best NBA teams ever.

              Yup, he was fierce on the boards last game.

              Who? Green or Durant? I dislike both and have posted my reasons.

              And, no, Tom, Green won’t end up with more rings than Kobe. He’s a dirty player and a $hithead.

              And, BTW, Tom, Boston’s Mookie Betts and JD Martinez are better than the Yankee’s Aaron Judge and Giancarlo Stanton. So, there!

              Gotta agree on Green, Tate…although the league isn’t the strongest it’s been..so, he may or may not end up with more rings than Kobe…but what would it mean if he does ? sure wouldn’t make him a better player…

              I don’t like KD either but I haven’t read your reasons for the same

              Amit, my reasons for not liking KD is primarily due to the short-changing he did to the OKC fans by jumping ship to GS and not being man enough to bloom where he was planted. Once he got to GS he turned into a dic*head. There’s too much cockiness in GS.

              Yankees are in a Playoff push.

              Tate’s Dodgers do more blowing this year, than a Mexican Whorehouse.

    Well now Cavs know what it takes to beat the Celtics:

    Sit Rodney Hood and play Larry Nance, Jr!

      While they shot great from 3, I thought it was getting in the faces of every Celtics player that made the difference. Same game plan as the Rockets on defense. Disrupt the Celtics and Warriors offenses.

    Dang. if OKC can have a makeover wouldn’t they keep Harden and Durant and trade Westbrook instead?
