Mods usually are up in par when it comes to unreliable tweets.

They still haven’t said anything about IGS being a hack, they still allow his tweets on LG.

This is all a bunch of BS... the dude is trolling hard and people are falling for it.

Maybe Lakers reach out to Jerry. Maybe they don't. Thew way he wrote it, he can make himself look credible.

Let's Woj reports Lakers talked to Jerry: He claims Jeanie came around
If we never hear a peep about Lakers/Jerry: Jeanie firmly vetoed it

It's that easy. He was never wrong and people (dumb ones) fall for it.


Or maybe he just has inside information.

It amazes me how well ex-Laker players are thriving. I'm guessing Luke will be coach of the year with the Kings next year.


The Lou trade trade got us Kuz. Zubac scored a total of 2 pts in the playoffs. The Dlo trade made the two max dream possible. All these moves were still right imo.

Sure we could of signed Randle and BL to a big one year deal and that would of been smart but if we do get a second star they both wouldnt be able to stay on the team next year so as long as we catch another big fish none of the moves you Mentioned will matter much.

If we dont well it was a lot to risk and come up empty handed


I’m sorry but all those trades to me were garbage at best. The dlo trade was stupid as you could have got moz off the books during the trade deadline and that dlo looked real stupid aS he goes on to play in the all star game...smh. Oyeah and he knows how to shoot o think something this year we actually needed. Also that same year it seemed pretty easy for the nets to trade moz sooo ummm why couldn’t we?

That Lou trade was stupid as one Lou knew how to score and score some more...nobody was complaining when he kept getting to the free throw line and guess what he could actually make his free throws. Him and nick young were bench players forced to be starters due to all the youth we had at the time. Oyeah but we got kuz kuz kuz...yeah we still could have got him as it was only one draft position upward and we were noted as the only idiots who had our eye on him. And zu was helping us stay in the hunt of the playoffs and we got some hot garbage that shouldn’t even be on the nba....zu got 2 points more than our whole team right about now. Annnnd the total icing full circle on the Cake? If we don’t get a star this summer all these none headed moves for capespace is going to look real stupid.....I mean blinding. Once again our mvp biggest free agent catch will be “cap space” put back of my lakers jersey “CAP”

He doesn't. He's been exposed on reddit and on twitter. He was lying about working for the Athletic, got called out by Athletic writers, and deleted all his bio and tweets mentioning the Athletic. The dude was pretending to be an OKC insider then got called out and switched to Lakers insider.

IG is obviously known for posting like 100 rumors a minute which may not be of the best quality but it's a public forum, banning people for being die hard fans doesn't seem right to me.

It's not like dude breaks any rules, and is generally respectful even though he gets roasted by pretty much every member here for longer then a month.

I believe it's against the forum rules to post fake rumors. IG does that habitually even after being told not to

Exactly.
We need IGS or Scoop or IAmInsider or IAmRealIPromise or some other legit insider to give us more juiciness.

Cant change your mind on what you believe was smart or not, but in order to get kuz we had to make the dlo or lou trade. We picked up two first rounds that year because of those trades so the only way to have kuz was by giving up either dlo or Lou (Rob has actually netted us 3 first rounders since he has been here).

Think of it this way with those two trades: Dlo and Lou for Kuz Hart and a max space

Give me a link to all this because LG's beloved LFR aka GT has said what he says lines up to some of the things he has heard.

Excellent point. Could be a way to legitimize his ‘reign’. He brings in someone highly respected as a Consultant - no need for PoBO, he solidifies his reign, the masses are placated by a big name.

Honestly, though, if Rob went to Jeannie and demanded we beef up our staff and hired a bunch of basketball people, analytics people, health and science people, etc., that would be something. I still don't think Rob is the guy to make those calls, but it'd be an improvement. But Jeannie is cheap so that's probably pipe.

Rob would be bringing in someone who he worked with and someone who he trusts to help him make decisions. This is what you call a consultant. That's why I think Arn Tellem is the guy, their history goes back years.
It's definitely not going to be Jerry West, there's nothing in common there and Jeanne doesn't want him. In fact Jerry West is your enemy across the room.

Jerry could at least make this place back respectable....Annd this is one reason some might question coming here when you got a IDT owning a company...I really think her and Dolan share that one brain cell smh.

i was ref: "Rob Pelinka who contacted Clippers in regards to Jerry West did it without Jeannie Buss blessing."

i very much doubt Rob contacted jerry west without Jeannie. He has very little to gain bringing in someone who would probably have more influence with the Lakers than him. I could see it happen if Jeanine demanded it but not the other way around.

I share lots of fans' concerns about Pelinka.

But, one thing that would make me feel a little better is finding out that he wasn't part of the anti-shooter philosophy that they had last off-season. I think he also repeated what Magic said about not needing shooters because they didn't want to copy the Warriors(lol).

But, Pelinka said himself that Magic lays out the vision and it was his job to carry it out. Maybe he was just being a good subordinate and selling that vision? He did have James Harden and Buddy Hield as clients before he became the Lakers' GM.

Whatever problems Pelinka has, getting rid of the outdated philosophy the Lakers had last off-season is a good step in the right direction.

I would still love veteran front office guys for sure. But that philosophy, which led to the Lakers' signing the players they did, was really egregious.
