PostPosted: Wed Jun 27, 2018 3:22 pm    Post subject: My thoughts

Interesting Pod Pete:

My thoughts are that Julius is a MUST KEEP.. & I'll bring you back to that Lakers Cavs game this past year where we won by double digits plus at home Julius was not only the best player for us on the court for the game but I would argue that he was the best player on the court period & Lebron wanted no part of guarding Julius at all during the game. You don't let that type of young talent go at all. That Julius is a player whom you can win championships with him as a key piece of the team.

(I also don't want Lebron at all on our team, but that is more of Lebron being a gravitational type player whom you have to rebuild your team around. A Lebron who is 27-28, years old.. you overhaul the team for, not for a 33 soon to be a 34 year old Lebron James who is coming off a season where he played his most games & minutes. Pass on him.)

Paul George is giving me that Dwight Howard wishy washy type vibe where he says one thing to someone, then says a completely another thing to someone else because he wants to be "liked". That type of player you can win games with & maybe even a playoff game or two with, but championships?! Nah, I don't think so. The facts are that OKC will be extremely capped out if he resigns there, a team of WB/PG/Roberson/washed Melo/Adams is 1 & done in the playoffs.. he ain't winning anything there at all.. PG has to know this about their cap situation, so that is why it is sooo baffling to me why there is even a "hard decision" for PG.. & makes me question him where he is mentally as a player, if this is such a "tough decision".. it really isn't.. if he wants to win.. come to LA, it is home, it is where your family & girl/wife/baby mama wants you to be, the team is better in LA(with or without Lebron).. only thing OKC has is Westbrook & the ability to offer more money.. it isn't hard, & if PG is "waffling" on this decision.. Pass on him..

I feel like I would rather hit doubles in free agency rather than home runs(Lebron PG-13).. of course if the home run is there, you take it(ala Home Run Derby) but you don't go out of your way to hit it.. I feel like Ball, Kuzma, Ingram, Hart, Randle etc all will be better next year than they were last year.. add some doubles to that team.. we have a 45-50 win team.. & our team is ascending for not only next year but future years after that..

BTW I don't trade for Kawhi.. I gotta see him in game action first before trading anyone for him.. he is unknown if he is healthy or not.. & I don't trade what we do know(our young guys) for what is essentially an unknown "What is behind door #1) Kawhi..

Anyways great pod like always, can't wait to keep on listening to your thoughts & reading you in the Atlantic..

Very cool, I didn't know that. Flipboard doesn't pay, but increased exposure ends up converting into money one way or another.

Lonzo is going to have a lot of open shots with Lebron.
Unfortunately, Lonzo can't shoot. And at the end of games it will be hack a Lonzo for poor FT shooting. The ball should be in the hands of Lebron, and Ball should come off the bench at best.
Good part is Lebron can also shoot and score.

Ingram will be a great fit with Lebron as he can hit the open jumper. And he also plays good defense.

It seems like the recent draft was to make a fit for Lebron.

Gonna be an interesting season GT!! EVERY network and web channel's going to want some expert insight on the team that's now at the center of the Basketball Universe. Roster is changing by the minute. Got a feeling your task list is growing almost as fast as the invite list. Just remember us little folks when you're shutting down Barkley and Kenny with Shaq applauding in the corner OK?

Signed up for a year of The Athletic. All I needed to push me over the edge of us signing a big free agent this summer and I think you can certainly say we did that...

Btw GT - congrats on calling the Lebron signing. I know it was sort of inadvertent and just a casual mention during that podcast about the four different Hollywood sources and all but dude... now youíre gonna be known as one of the guys who had insider info and mentioned it in a public forum during this historic offseason. Not too shabby for someone who didnít even want to be known for that.

So the original title of this was "LeBron & the Kids" but they wanted to get all wordy about it.

GT.

From a technical standpoint.
Brook or Dwight? Who fits with this squad better?

McGee is essentially our Dwight. Brook gives you a different look with floor spacing.

Yeah. Lopez + McGee is better than Dwight + McGee, and that's without the other nonsense that Dwight brings.
