Haha. I was the one going back and forth him and I don't think thats what he meant. He meant, I think, that the reason BI and Ball are not tradeable is because of their potential. Which I agree though I may not say untradeable but pretty darn close.

Its still irrelevsnt to my original question which was to know if there are any combination of any 3 Laker pkayers we would trade for CLE's #2-#4 and if so, which players might those be. I'd imagine they'd be bench players.

The same wouldn't be true for GSW, I think, and so that to me highlights the talent disparity between GSW and CLE.

There is NO EXCUSES for LeBron this year, there is no "We don't have enough, I don't have enough." this year. If LeBron doesn't get it done, I don't wanna hear any excuses whatsoever about him, or his team. The Cavaliers have gone above and beyond to give him what you could argue is the most complete team he's had.

So there's no room for excuses or "Cleveland didn't give me enough" blaming now.


? None of those guys are all that great.

Just curious, which Lakers would you trade for the #2, #3, and #4 options on the Cavs?

That will tell you everything you need to know about how good you really believe they are.


It doesn't tell you (bleep).

Disregarding potential, I would trade anyone on the roster for Love or IT. But potential is a thing and that's why BI is Mr. Untouchable and Ball is pretty much our franchise player without playing a single minute. Magic wouldn't trade those two for Paul George. Does that mean they are better now than PG? Nope. Not even close.

Cavs are stacked, again. Yet another super team for LeBron.


So if I'm clear your saying that you would trade anyone on our roster, including BI & Ball, for Love or IT, but Magic & the FO wouldn't because in their eyes BI & Ball are untouchable?


Read again.


Why? He pretty much nailed what you wrote. Unless words are lost in your translation from your pen to pad. There is some misdirection in your comment too. For example, why bring up PG who is not on the Cavs? I thought the topic was Cavs players. But besides Lebron, any other Cavs player wouldn't make a strong case for you, which defeats your stance.

"Magic wouldn't trade those two for Kevin Love. Does that mean they are better than Love now? Nope, not even close."

Not so sexy as inserting PG into the argument, right?


'Disregarding potential' is clearly stated on the post. Basically, I think Love and IT are better than anyone on this roster RIGHT NOW.

I inserted PG because he's the guy we were rumored to be in conversations for this summer. BI was untouchable in those talks. Pretty sure Ball was as well. Just proving that even though PG is better RIGHT NOW, just like Love and IT, potential is taken into consideration, obviously.

Not sure how much clearer can this be. Even the guy that disagrees with me about everything understood the post.

So much can happen over the next year.

Let's try to enjoy this team now.

Crazy stuff about Lebron.

These reporters are so desperate that they will make stuff up.

Speaking of LeBron to the Lakers, I found this commercial from Intel featuring LeBron, and the jersey design he's wearing greatly resembles the Lakers jersey, albeit in a different colour.

LaVar Ball speaking LeBron James with Lakers to existence!

https://www.cbssports.com/nba/news/podcast-lavar-ball-says-lebron-will-join-lakers-but-theyll-be-lonzo-balls-team/

Quote:
LaVar is convinced LeBron will join Lonzo in Los Angeles next season:

"I know it's gonna happen," Ball said. "Let's just keep it real on the business aspect. [LeBron] is one of the best players probably, over Jordan ... but the fact is he hasn't won enough. You been to the Finals too many times and haven't won enough.

"But the other thing that makes you better is if you do a three-peat and you won for three different teams. You went to Miami and won. You went to Cleveland and won. Now come to L.A. and win, and guess what? Now you're the greatest player ever if you win two or three in a row.

"And also business-wise, ain't no business opportunities in Cleveland. Cleveland's a nice place to stay if you're from there, but you wanna make some business deals and have some fun? You gotta come to L.A. or New York. And, hey, guess what? New York ain't the place to be, so bring your tail on over here to the west side, which is the best side."

Reiter then followed up with the question on everyone's mind: If LeBron comes to L.A. to join Lonzo, whose team will it be?

"Whose team is it? Man, everybody know whose team it is -- it's Lonzo Ball's team! LeBron's coming over here to join us. We ain't going over there to join him! If you come to my house, and you need somewhere to stay -- it ain't your house because you came here to stay. It's my house!"

Satire
He is making fun of Laker fans trying to connect the dots indicating LeBron will be a Laker.

Hypothetical question, if the Lakers do sign LeBron and George next summer, which SF do you think will be the better fit between them?

Ingram or Kuzma?

Too early to tell. Either way it's a good problem to have. Kuz has been fantastic though.

George would be the best SF unless Lebron plays there

I really really doubt LeBron will ever play for the Lakers. The Lakers bring a lot of these heartbreaking fake news every year about getting a top free agents, and all that does is just give everyone false hopes. Stop the LBJ, the PG13, Westbrook etc. because the chance of that ever happening is practically zero. The best thing is to sign players that they think are productive and will continue to produce and try to move others to cover for their weaknesses.
Getting back to the top is going to take years, and small good moves here and there will eventually pay off.

You sound like a fake Laker fan, obviously your not thinking about all those retired jerseys
