Wait a minute...

Could it just be PG never wanted to play here and the "I want to play for the Lakers" was, as some here in LG said, just a power play to get traded to another team


I think that for whatever reason he didn't want to play with Lebron or there wasn't a good vibe between the two.


Cause playing with LeBron means playing important games. PG ain't about that life.



Or having to be in a reduced role to benefit him.

Kyrie didn't want to play with LeBron either. I think after seeing Kyrie of all people diss LeBron the tide turned with how others perceive LeBron in the league. He got swept by the Warriors and he's getting older.

I don't think PG is going to win anything myself but honestly there's no guarantee teaming up with LeBron anywhere would win a championship either.

He got swept because his team was garbage. That team had no business in the finals against the KD/Curry super team. He's still the best player in the league.

Didn't Kyrie ask to be traded because he wanted to build his legacy and win as "the man"? He already won with LeBron. That's commendable (it's like the anti-Durant) but it didn't strike me as a diss on LeBron.



Except it was a diss on LeBron because he doesn't care for the guy plus he was still under contract with the Cavs and demanded a trade.

One wonders why leave a great situation such as being alongside LeBron?

Could it be that being alongside LeBron isn't all its cracked up to be? Or he hates Cleveland(entirely possible).

He doesn't guarantee a championship either(an appearance sure but not a win)

Durant to the Warriors altered the perception of LeBron's career.

Iím pretty sure Mintz made did everything possible to make sure PG to stayed in OKC. When the Lakers traded DLO and Magic threw him under the bus I feel that hurt their relationship. As Mintz wanted George, Randle, and DLO on the same team.

Unfortunately I saw the fireworks display last night from the Westbrook party here in Oklahoma. Was wondering what that was for.

whats with all the animosity? yes its disappointing for him to sign right away with OKC without even hearing a pitch from the Lakers, especially with all the rumors coming up to this.
But he has no obligation to sign with us just like any other FA who didnt sign with us so no need for all the saltiness towards him.

There's also the distinct possibility after Kawhi became an option PG was expendable to them.

Everyone assumes LeBron wanted him on the team.

I bet you he didn't.
