  1. Kendrick Perkins is also tweeting about another major Lakers move happening lmao
  2. Who knows...what I meant is that any of us could claim we know something, knowing that there's a significantly higher chance the Lakers sign another max FA now that they have AD
  3. Lol that could be for any of the max level FAs out there.
  4. I saw a report that Tatum was discussed, but Tatum himself wasn't enough
  5. Pelinka hasn't been with us for 10 years, nice try. We didn't bid against ourselves, you have no clue who else was in the running. The Celtics were willing to deal Tatum but got the sense from Nola it had to be way more to get a deal done. The franchise has only been run poorly for 4-5 years now, we just dealt with a lot of coming back from Kobe retiring and the lack of talent we were able to get to surround him with due to cap restrictions. Its called rebuilding, teams do it a lot. We shoulda done it the Celtic was and shipped Kobe to some desperate team and done him dirty like KG and Pierce.
  6. There's only one mad person in this thread lmao. Lakers fans are stoked, we don't even care about the ramifications in 6 years. This is the most exciting its been to be a Laker fan since we were winning ships with Pau Odom and Kobe
  7. Obviously the pick swaps are high risk/high reward. Its pointless to argue the value now. If AD stays with another max FA and the Lakers remain a top 10 team in the league for the next 6 years, all the picks will be meh. If AD bolts, Lebron retires, and we're back to lotto status then oh boy we're screwed.
  8. AD's probably gonna leave after one year? PROBABLY!? After he just got traded to the team he wanted to be traded to. Man y'all haters are too much.
  9. Stop projecting your fantasies. Lakers have a chance to be really, really good - no matter how much you clearly despise them

    Kawhi is a top 3 player and got Derozan. Dwight was a top 15 player and got Andrew Bynum. Pau Gasol was a top 20 player and got Kwame freaking Brown. Shaq was a top 10 player and got Caron Butler and Lamar Odom. It's not about what he's worth, its all about the most value they can realistically get. I personally wouldn't do that trade if I were the Pelicans because of Lavine's large contract, but if they want to demand an established all-star level player then they have to be reasonable

    You're so dramatic lmao. It's not horrific. Is it the best deal they can get? No. Let me give you an example of an "absolutely horrific return" Alex Caruso Josh Hart Javale McGee 2019 2nd round pick 2021 protected 1st That would be a horrific return.

    In terms of what Griffin was asking for it, it has everything he wanted. Lavine was a borderline allstar last year, they get two young potential guys in Hart + Kuzma, 2 FRPs, and cap relief by shedding Hill

    Watch the Nets let DeAngelo Russel go and he's the max FA the Lakers end up with lmao

    Same with Chicago Per ESPN’s @ZachLowe_NBA, the #Bulls are willing to trade Zach LaVine to the Pels as a part of an Anthony Davis trade, in exchange for the 4th pick (and maybe more) from the #Lakers. (H/T @BullsStampede) #LakeShow

    LAL gets: AD MIN gets: Ingram, Hill, Moore NOR gets: Kuzma, Hart, Wiggins, #4, #11 Not sure how much Minnesota values Wiggins, but in this trade they flip him for Ingram and take back Hill's expiring as well as Moore's much shorter deal. The cost to them is the #11 pick Edit: LAL 2021 1st could go to MIN/NOR to even out the value
