As @PeterVecsey1 stated on podcast: Phil Jackson wanted to deal Kristaps Porzingis for #1 pick to draft Lonzo Ball.


It's Peter Vescey, so take it with a grain of salt.
But dang! Thank you Dolan.


Wonder if Boston wouldve done it?


We should be thankful that Boston/Philly deal went down. Boston would have undoubtedly traded that pick for Kristaps.


They rate Tatum pretty high. They would've taken him #1. Tatum + top lottery pick next year is a better haul than just Porky.


I doubt they would have taken that Philly deal over Kristaps. Kristaps helps them now and has already proven that he can play in the NBA. Tatum's got potential, but there's always a chance that a pick may bust. I think they would have taken the sure thing.


Agree. Ainge would take porzingis in a heartbeat. My guess is Dolan vetoed that idea and fired Phil.


And to think we could have picked him 2 years ago but instead picked a guy to allow us to regain the cap space which we already had. Kill me fam.

Hmm. Who knows. Maybe we get KP 2 years ago and we don't get BI and/or Lonzo. I like where we're at now.

Given his style, he'd fit in the triangle offense pretty easily from the 1 position anyway.

He seems like the quintessential one to me. Big, smart, unselfish. Kobe and Michael don't seem like Phil/triangle players to me.

They probably aren't. They both clashed with Phil and hate the triangle but accepted it later.

And are the only reason it ever worked, because it requires an exceptionally talented shot creator for whenever the team fails to get a shot from triangle

Lonzo picks Lebron over Kobe.

I love Kobe and Lebron is great. It is reasonable for people to argue both sides of debate. Lonzo chose the unpopular side that all.

For sure. I'am just glad he's honest. It makes sense for a pass first guy to pick James over Kob anyway.

Lonzo is laser-like focused on building a winning team. Already helping recruit LeBron. I love it.

This is what I thought... he wants to play with the guy and Lebron seems to be an ego-maniac.

Ready-Made Rookies: Ten NBA Newcomers Worth Watching


Quote:
No rookie commanded more attention than Ball this summer, and the Big Baller Brand train should pick up steam once he suits up in NBA games that actually count. Ball is a mesmerizing playmaker with uncanny timing and accuracy. Even if he’s never able to consistently manufacture shots off the dribble or make more than a third of his threes, Ball’s ability to push the pace and rifle on-target dimes will have plenty of fans defaulting to the Lakers as their go-to League Pass team by the end of his rookie season.

I don't usually think Thompson is funny but that was pretty good.

Lonzo based on age, can relate more to lebron.

I hear little kids yell curry when shooting when I still yell "Kobe"

Just different times

Lonzo clearly recruiting LBJ.

2 of 4 of these players will be Lakers in 2018 (LBJ/PG13/WB/Boogie)

Not just age, but playing style.

By the way, Ingram's favorite player is Durant and Russell was a Manu fan.

Anyway, I like to see our young gun recruiting his sidekicks

Hmm. I was thinking more of the post play. Lonzo can definitely pass out of the post, but he doesnt seem to be much of a scorer from there.

Meanwhile, Kobe/Shaq/MJ were post threats from a scoring and passing perspective.

I think KG would have been awesome in the tri!

Only Lebron is more likely to want Ball traded. Teams don't win with 20 yo players.

I would think that if we got lbj/pg13, Ingram is more likely than Lonzo. Hopefully neither gets moved.
