Those are fresh!

Great homage to Kobe as well in those shoes as well as Bruce Lee. Nice to see Kyrie's got the #mambamentality

Is it bad that I wouldn't be so disagreeable if by freak chance LAL was able to land Kyrie and PG13 instead of LeBron because of the age thing?

My fave players in the league are kyrie and Westbrook, since Kobe retired. Mamba mentality! And their style of play of taking over a game. Yeah it's not efficient and team ball, but it's so entertaining. Much better bball to watch drives, post up play than a bunch long 3 pointers.
I'm a season ticket holder and the couple of GSW games I've seen were boring. Run up the court throw up a three and repeat. It wins games but is not exciting to watch. KD has made them more watchable though.

I've always liked Kyrie...

All jokes aside this is pretty dope! I can't think of any of athletes collars on a shoe before. Really unique

He's an elite one demensional player...
I'm torn on that one.
At this moment along PG I'd want LeBron, RW, Kyrie... In that order.

Not at all.

Kyrie would definitely fit next to Lonzo.

That would put so much pressure on Ingram and George's perimeter D though.

If Kyrie could play even a little defense, then it would be great.

Selfishly, I would rather have PG13 and any one of Cousins, Irving, etc over LeBron just because of the age gap and well...(bleep) Lebron.

We all know that Lonzo needs a ball-handling shot creator. In that spot, the Lakers have Vander Blue, Jordan Clarkson...

Kyrie is the most efficient at it. I really don't think he's as one-dimensional as most think; rather he played that role best to fit Cleveland.

I don't even understand why we're even worried about Ingram's or George's defense when the Lakers haven't even been a .500 team in forever.

At least with Irving/George, there's time, even past GSW's window.

I would prefer Irving/George to Lebron/George as well.

Lonzo has he size to guard 2 guards anyways. The problem is there is no way for us to trade for Kyrie

There is. I just highly doubt Magic is willing to make an offer. There's no way LeBron comes here if Kyrie is already a Laker.

Who Mike? Maglinka ain't trading Ball or Ingram from what they've said. And I don't see any of our other guys being enough
