It may be good for LA for 1 year, but I guarantee you New Orleans is in a ton better shape than the Fakers in 3 years.

I agree with Wayne. The Lakers will be solid every year and besides this years pick those other picks are garbage. They will be 25 or later draft picks most likely. I dont see how those pics are good.

You are fuckin crazy. The picks will mean nothing and Ball/Ingram will never be leaders or game changers. Davis will be in LA, even after Lebron is gone. They will be able to pair people with him.

Your love for trash like Ball/Ingram and the totally unknown of draft picks makes no sense. The superstar is Davis and the team that gets the superstar always wins that trade.

The picks are going to suck. Everyone was excited about all the picks Boston piled up too and they have 3 in round 1 this year ... and not a sole is excited. Getting excited over the 25th pick in 3 drafts is laughable.

The Lakers had 1 guy worth a shit and it was the only guy the Lakers wanted to keep. You had to make this hurt a little for LA by forcing Kuzma in that deal.

How will the Lakers be solid? LeBron is old as fuck. Ant Man is awesome but made of glass. Hopefully no one gets hurt cause they have zero bench.

First of all that is not what you were stating kb. You were defending what NO got in return mainly in the picks. And I dont see how getting picks 25-30 help your team.

Secondly the Lakers still have 23M in cap space for this year and they have a core they can add to. Not sure how they will suck. I'm not saying they will win the championship but they should be a top 5 team in the NBA.

The Lakers won the trade, they get a superstar in his prime without giving up either of their two best players, AD is only 26, and when age catches up to LeBron, they'll be able to build around Davis, he's a guy other stars will want to team up with. David Griffin got screwed by AD letting it be known he would only re-sign with LA, if he was willing to play in Boston, Danny Ainge had an offer of Jayson Tatum, Marcus Smart, a couple of their young bench guys, plus picks, that's the deal Griffin wanted and would have taken, it's a better package than what the Lakers offered, but once AD said he would only be a one year rental for Boston, Ainge wisely pulled Tatum out of the deal, so Griffin took the lesser offer from LA

Agree. They have Davis, Lebron and Kuzma now and I guarantee others will jump at the chance to join them. When Lebrun is done you have Kuzma, Davis and I guarantee another max player that will be more than willing to go there

IMO this was simple for Griffin and a slam dunk if he does this.

You tell the Lakers you don’t even want Ingram and Ball. They are garbage and I do not even want them on my salary cap. You can keep the garbage late 1st round picks too. I want Kuzma, the 4th pick and Hart.

I then have a starting 5 of
Pg J Holiday
Sg
Sf K Kuzma
Of Zion Williamson
C J Randle

I go out and sign the best SG available and there are a lot of them out there. You slot him in your starting 5. You then take the 4th pick and draft a potential superstar PG in Darius garland out of Vandy to backup Holiday (fuck ball). That leaves you a very young exciting and athletic starting 5 to build around, a PG & SG on your bench in garland and hart and money to fill out the rest of your roster.

The lakers need a pg so they can keep ball. They need depth so keep Ingram and they keep their picks, while exciting things are also happening in NO

THAT is a win win and if I am griffin that would be a home run. You got guys buying Kuzma jerseys, Zion jerseys and Garland jerseys. That would be a fun team to watch. Instead they are left with fuckin garbage!!!

The Lakers are and have been a complete cluster fuck for years now. Not sure why you think that changes overnight with the same people in the front office.

They won back to back titles in 2009-2010. You act like they are the Thunder or Magic!

People will and always have wanted to go to L.A. and that will not change as long as Hollywood is there. That is an advantage they will always have.

Why hasn’t it happed in the past years? Cause the front office has zero fucking clue!!! LeBron is onto his filmmaking/producing stage of his career. AD is a bitch that only goes where his agent tells him to go. They may get a Kemba Walker and get 1 good year out of it, but that’s it. Give me the keys to NO. Much better shape!!!

It's not disrespect at all. The odds are based on the likelihood that Leonard leaves hence why LAC odds are so low.
