There's significant concern that DeMarcus Cousins has suffered a torn left quad, but there won't be complete certainty until his MRI on Tuesday, league sources tell ESPN. The hope is that it's just a strain.

Q&A with IGS



Q: Chances the Lakers look at more that West for PBO?

A: Yes a lot more for some reason they are absolutely no leaks on PBO, Jeanie is certainly making sure no leaks come out.

So Jeanie is making sure no leaks yet this clown got the info lmao


Thus far the only thing he seems to have gotten correct AND before mainstream reporters is the travel schedule of us meeting with Monty. He called that a day before Woj.

He claims his source is within AEG. He’s 100% putting any possible reputation he has with this Jerry West proclamation. If someone credible reports it in the coming days, IGS becomes interesting. If not, he’ll fade away like so many other “insiders”.


One thing I forgot to mention: GT (somewhat) corroborated this guy’s intel on Twitter a couple weeks ago:

At best one of them is wrong.. realistically, they're both off.

Scoop is an actual person. This other clown is enjoying his 15 mins of fame

I feel bad for Cousins. He lost out on hundreds of millions of dollars.

I still wouldn't take him for the vet min. He's just not good.

AD sign and trade str8 up for Bron. Sign Kawhi. Keep the youth. Draft Ty Jerome. Leave the PoBO vacant and at least bring Tony Bennett in for an interview for HC.

Let's say IGT is right and we do get Kawhi. I would go for Bol Bol in the draft for more shooting.

Remaining Cap room:
Re-sign Bullock.
Keep Caruso.

Exception: Darren Collison
Vet Min: McGee


Bol-McGee
LeBron-Kuzma-Wagner
Ingram-Hart
Kawhi-Bullock
Lonzo-Collison-Caruso

There is no more cashing in for him. If it wasn’t apparent before, it is now - damaged goods.

McGee probably won’t take the vet minimum.
I like Seth Curry more than Collison.

Vucevic just moved up as the best available big man this summer.

I still don't get why folks want him as a big FA signing.

He's not going to be the Boogie that we knew offense wise. That achilles tear is taxing on his whole body IMO.

Yea, probably view him as a better version of Brook Lopez but nothing more.

Not even that TBH.

I think people underestimate the Achilles injury on a guy who is so large and heavy as Boogie.

Brook was always the better defensive player

The next rebound that Brook gets will be his first. I feel bad for Boogie. He is done and is never going to get paid (if he didn't get hurt he would have clearly been a max player).

That's a wrong way to look at it.

Plenty of data that shows guys like him, Hibbert, are/were effective box outs that helped the TEAM garner defensive rebounds. He may not put up massive rebounding stats but why do you think Jules loved rebounding next to Brook?

Not to mention Brook being the better rim protector. Boogie's quicker feet could be useful-ish on switches - his best defensive attribute - but guess what?

Boogie was the better offensive player, no question - shooting 3s earlier than Brook, passing, ball-handling, offensive rebounding, sheer relentlessness.

For sure. Boogie on offense was a monster. Probably a bit of the reason he took the defensive end off.

Sorry but 4 boards per game is a disgrace. Plenty of centers effectively box out which not only garners rebounds for the team, but themselves as well. I understand he was not down low offensively, which hurt his totals. However, four rebounds a game is ridiculous. Your analogy about Randle doesn't really support your claim. He had his lowest rebounding #'s of his career playing next to him (although his minutes were lower). I like BL (especially the fact that he seemed to enjoy being a Laker), but he played a little bit like a whimp to be honest.

As an aside, isn't it fun when additional data challenges our preconceptions in unexpected ways?

ETA: of course, some folks will still run with old ways of understanding the game.
