I wouldn't have been opposed to keeping JC/Nance and adding Hood. Then go for PG this summer.

I like this result. PG needs to lose as much as possible with Melo and WB chucking away. Perfection...

Lakers Fan's worst nightmare....

- Cleveland uses MLE to sign Randle immediately, and the Lakers blink and do not match
- Lebron resigns in Cleveland.
- PG-13 forces a S&T with Cleveland for KLove and George Hill
- Cleveland uses the Brooklyn pick to trade for DLo.
- Mitch becomes VP of Basketball Operations for the Cavs.

behind Lebron and PG-13, supported by Russell, Clarkson, Randle and Nance, go on to 3 Peat.

Nance should have taken that steal right down the lane and hammered it
they gave him a slot to do it

LOL @JC....
instead of going for the simple score, he's going for a highlight and gets stripped by Adams

JC has always had spurts where he plays like a damn good player but then he'll have even longer stretches of being a dumb ass

I also hated JC's brain dead stretches..
however, I suspect he won't get away with that in Cavland - Lebron and others will chew him a new one

Certainly easier to root for the Cavs in the Finals with JC/Nance.

Really wish we'd gotten Rodney Hood for KCP, especially considering what Cleveland got for him.

And the fact Elfrid Payton got sent away for a 2nd round pick.


The Lakers could very well have traded away KCP for Rodney Hood, and our 2nd rounder + Tyler Ennis for Elfrid Payton considering what they both went for.

I'd much preferred sending out Ennis and KCP and getting Hood and Payton while keeping Clarkson and Larry Nance Jr.

Seriously. Wtf is the other post watching because PG has been outstanding this year, especially with WB not playing.

Maybe the Lakers hold the players back. First Lou William now JC and Larry. Have you guys ever considered that maybe playing around bad players make you worse? Maybe JC is a good player who's been held back by the players around him.

Hezonja.

Hood was probably attainable though maybe Utah just really liked crowder and his cheap deal.

They aren't Lakers anymore. And every time you think it's "easier" to root for LeBron, the Cavs or Dan Gilbert, remember this.
