Lonzo for Dunn and the Bulls #4 pick? Would you guys do it?

Absolutely. I’d take that #4 + #11 + Dunn + BI and flip it for AD in principal so that we can sign a max FA first to max our cap space.

Still keep Kuz and Hart to round out the team


Yep I’d do that to. When was the last time a team won a title with a lead guard that had Lonzo’s skill set?


Jason Kidd...

Arguably, Draymond Green.


Kidd was at the tail end. That Mavs team was deep and caught fire at the right time

Draymond can also guard 1-5 and doesn’t get hurt as easily


Kidd also dragged a mediocre team to the finals in his prime and ran into Shaq and Kobe. Injuries are the worry, not skill set. That’s a different discussion. In the time where LeBron got hurt he showed he’s in the top tier of his draft class when healthy.


And if the Nets/Kidd played in the West those years, they don’t even make the playoffs.

People are shocked a 21-22 y/o almost made a bad decision? Based on the advice of someone he trusted?

Or that he DIDN'T make that bad decision?


Starting to look like there is nothing people can't spin into negative Lakers News.

I don’t know what you expected.

The fact that the Lakers fired the medical staff should tell you all you need to know anyways.

Yeah, an extreme hell no to that bulls trade for sure.. If Lonzo can stay healthy he absolutely could be an extreme contributor to a championship contender.. Not sure how anyone can really even think otherwise.. I get it if you say you're worried about health even though I believe that is even overstated since he's still growing and finally about to have his first off season where he can actually train and workout his full body which should massively help him going into next season.

If next season he is plagued by injuries then I will be much more understanding about those concerns but I still see elite potential on both sides of the ball.. Like Ingram, I really hope these two guys remain Lakers.

What do you mean by first off-season? Your forgetting about

1. rehabbing from the injury
2. taking care of the newborn
3. probably getting married
4. suing BBB co-founder
5. figuring out new shoe deal or closing BBB
6. new rap song

I still dont get why would he be following the surgery advise from the same guy he already knew scammed him (nevermind the ridiculous idea of taking medical advise from a non-medical person)
I wonder if this was another attempted ploy to tank his value over the summer to try to prevent a trade

It happened in February, when he didn't know Foster was scamming him. Still, it was a bad judgement.

I rather have Zo too, however I'm concerned with his durability, and that loudspeaker he carries around named Lavar.

I can honestly say it hasn't been as annoying as I thought it would be.

I share your concerns about his health. I'm hoping he follows the same trajectory as Curry, from a physical maturation standpoint.

I'm willing to gamble on him turning the corner health wise.

The Bulls have outright said that Dunn isn’t good and made it clear that they are going to replace him.

Next season is do or die for Lonzo as a Laker.

If he doesn't find a way to play in 65 games or more, I punt on him and I actually like his game but you have to be able to be counted on in the NBA.

He’ll be the second AS caliber 22 year old PG playing elsewhere. It’s crazy to me how quick people are give up on young players that show promise, but don’t put it all together before they should be college SRs.

Lost Thomas Bryant for nothing and Zubac too. We let Dlo go for cap space we used on scrubs and we let Julius go for nothing. It’s very frustrating
