According to some on here they had to move him because he was a cancer. The front office, coaching staff, and teammates didn't like him according to experts on here.


Unfortunately that's the only one that mattered and they were right. Mozdeng. The Gift that Keeps on Giving.


Couldn't we have just waited until they expired and gone into the 2020 offseason with:

D'Angelo Russell (24)
Lonzo Ball (22)
Brandon Ingram (22)
Kyle Kuzma (24)

...and a crapload of cap space?


Magic is my favorite athlete all time but dude has never been a “patient” type of guy. He wants it now.

Byron's honor was more important than the team's future

But you don't understand. D'Angelo rubbed Byron the wrong way and the Lakers sign stars by birthright. And if we don't have one, some people get heartbroken.

If he's somehow able to back all the BS salesmanship up with two max FAs next summer, all will be forgiven. That's a big if, though...

But even if he wanted to win now, there were ways to do it without trading Dlo (i.e., stretch provision, trading future picks next summer when the Moz/Deng deals are shorter, etc). So it wasn't all because of that, the new FO just didn't think much of Dlo, plain and simple. They've made it pretty clear since the trade. The Showtime cartel can go screw themselves...

Russell's "not a leader" and "not someone people want to play with", though.

But he's not even "getting it now". He traded Russell a year early to hopefully get it next summer.

DLo 15 points from 5-9. Nets down 16 at HT. Only following box score. No Spencer Dinwiddie tonight so Nets are really stretched.

Tight game now. But DLo got injured and went to the tunnel a minute ago. Maybe an ankle sprain.

it didn't look like that much of an ankle tweak on the replay either

I actuallu think that was the plan with MozDeng. Get a couple guys who wont get in the way, overpay to hold cap space while the young guys develop and get reps, and when they are ready .... go shopping.

One of my fears of the Magic route, is that the young player(s) decides to Kyrie somewhere else where they can be the man rather than a sidekick or role player.

Funny how most were like how ZO-DLo back court will be one of the worst defensively. While ZO is playing good defense and Lakers really missing a 20 PPG scorer who can close the games.

Kenny Atkinson said there is "no update" on D'Angelo Russell and thinks he "landed on somebody when he jumped." #Nets

This thread is quite the read in retrospect. So many Laker fans just mindlessly foaming at the mouth against this kid. So many bad takes. Happy for him that he's doing well.


Im really happy for Lonzo's good game tonight, but seeing all the minutes that the Lakers are giving him despite some of his struggles at times it makes me wonder why we never gave DLO this type of shot.

Really wonder where we could have been.

Also, hoping that his knees dont become a problem.

That seems to have been the Mitch/Jim plan, so we needed to deviate from the plan. Otherwise, why bring in Magic?

D'Lo seems to have kind of a low pain tolerance. I'm hoping that was the case here and this isn't serious. I just saw that he hurt his left knee this time. He previously hurt the right one earlier this season.

Magic could have used his "charisma" to get one max FA while keeping DLo, Zo, Ingram and Kuz. Or even dumped one of Moz/Deng with a 2019/2021 first round pick once they have 2 years left. Nets themselves took DMC's contract for Raptors first rounder. We had so many options without risking anything. Now max plan needs to work. Else we might end up using the cap on Lopez/KCP kinda players longterm which doesn't improve us much in the West.
