Who do you guys think is going to be Lebron's favorite target next year? Who will be talking to him the most?

What I like the most about Kuzma this off season is he is seemingly at every Lakers event, whether it be a summer league game or draft workouts. The guy is always next to Magic, Luke, or Rob and it seems as he's really engaged. I hope he's using all this opportunity to absorb knowledge from the greats and I think he will do the same with LBJ.

The way you're defending this kind of makes me think you're the responsible party.

And spare us the gang/tribal culture nonsense. The mural is like a block from a Whole Foods, next to a golf course, in a neighborhood with a median home price well into the millions. There's homeless people over there, but there's no gang/tribal culture (unless you want to count yoga gangs) over there anymore.

Again, try that argument with a judge when they haul you into court. It's not going to fly. In a civilized world the onus is upon you to control your behavior when you're triggered. The end. There's nothing else to discuss.

I think he has a personal affinity for Lonzo Ball, due to his pass first mentality.

So I see him mentoring Ball. But I also see him taking Ingram and Kuzma under his wing.

Someone will have to explain to me how a LeBron mural isn’t basketball. Seems to me that people don’t want to hear any counterpoints.

If the posts had all been basic “those guys are ignorant” and “throw them in jail” posts, I wonder if we’d be saying stick to basketball?

If there were nothing to discuss, he would have never removed the “of”.

Laker fans have suffered through the rebuild for the last 5 years, when the entire purpose of your season year after year is to lose more games in order to get a better pick or even keep your pick it numbs your senses and love for the game.


That's well put, wish that was mine. Liked "numbs the senses". Succinct account of those neverending doldrums.

Can we just all apply a bit of common sense? Vandalism is wrong, but so is calling Lebron the king of LA.

First and foremost we are all Laker fans. This isnt Cleveland, we are not witnesses of anybody or anything other than the P&G. If i were to be extreme id even say its disrespectful to those who came before him to call him King of LA. Not even the great magic johnson ever made that claim.

hy·per·bo·le

hīˈpərbəlē
noun
exaggerated statements or claims not meant to be taken literally.

Common sense applies to understanding hyperbole and media hype as well. This was an independent artist's take. He has a lot of other work. It is his own interpretation.

Really dude? Committing crimes over semantics is legal? It's a crime. Do you understand the criminal code? You cannot go over to someone's place of business and deface it. So no, there is nothing to discuss unless you can show me where in the Los Angeles codes it says that you can vandalize and commit property crimes in defense of your personal veneration of Kobe Bryant.

Let us apply common sense. One of the above actions is a crime, the other isn't.

Definitely see him and Rondo mentoring him. I hope Lebron shows him how to be more aggressive and finish. It will open up a lot more passing opportunities if he was a better finisher.

Josh, Svi, Alex summer league.

Lebron might run UCLA soon like he did last year.
Maybe even Drew if we are lucky.

Pelinka was on Mas/Ireland show yesterday afternoon. Re: Juiius - Rob sd Julius wanted a long term commitment & the Lakers were not willing to sacrifice next year's cap space for it.

I remember when DLO was traded there were a lot of salty LG fans - Now I'm in the same boat w/ Julius....But man - next off-season is going to be full of quality superstar FA's. We'll have the capspace & we'll have a quality team.

Lebron + JR would have been sweet - I gotta get over it - But Rob/Magic aren't messing around. This season is all about finding out what we have in the youngsters and Lebron/Rondo are the catalyst to bring out the best in BI, Hart, Zo, and Kuz. This season is going to exhibit an exciting brand of basketball. Where it's no longer Lebron + a bunch of specialists - It's Lebron + a bunch of real multi talented basketball players.

^Nice vid, GT!

I’m big on Lebron playing the 5 for stretches and ultimately transitioning into it full-time in a couple of years. I really believe it creates major matchup problems for opponents.

GT! Welcome back my dude! Congratulations on all your success. This was your best, most cleanest work yet! The graphics were tight the beat was nasty and the delivery was smooth. I’ve been watching Lebron for 15 years and I’ve never seen anyone break down his game like that. Keep up the good work!

Also, this one dude is trying to rip you off. Knicks Film School. Complete Gaaabage. Not even 1/10 of what you do.

His favorite target to pass the ball to will be Kuzma. His favorite player to be on the court with will be Lonzo.

Great Vid GT!!!

Can't wait to watch us play GS w/ Lebron at the 5 matched up w/ Draymond.

Lebron w/ Kuz and BI frontcourt w/ be a force to recon w/ e/o games.

You know what's weird, GT? Brawn is so tied in my mind to Cleve and Miami that I have yet to even WANT TO see his greatest moves highlight mixes. Iono why, it just feels like I know him too well to bother. I'm still more fulfilled as a fan during the last 5 years with him merely signing here. I haven't even desired to see what I already know he's gonna bring. I'm about to do it now for the first time. Like a virgin. LeBronning for the very first time.
