Funny. George as a Pippen to LeBron would work well anywhere. :D


Lebron at PF? Not sure whether he will be willing to do that :(

Otherwise

Kuzma/Lebron/Ingram/George/Ball could be very exciting to watch

Lebron already plays a good chunk of minutes at PF. That said, positions are becoming less and less important.

PG and Draymond Green have been hanging together at the fight. We know Draymond can recruit.

Glad we don't currently have a player that's doing that to us in interviews, especially after being traded here, especially after his actions with his teammates in the playoffs, if that happened we'd probably be questioning his maturity/leadership.

Could you imagine if Cousins wanted out of New Orleans after getting on Jrue Holiday for taking a final shot, got one, and then missed, got traded here, and told reporters "we'll see" when they asked if he'd still be a Laker next year after the drama he caused New Orleans both at the end of the season and off-season? Would be quite a hellstorm the media would eat up, and we'd all be pissed.




We'll definitely see, though.


Let's see: don't want to sign LeBron or pg13 but want to max randle and sign kcp/Lopez as other max

Hmm

And we know that literally the only way he could be on the Warriors is via trade (which the Warriors already declined this summer).

I honestly feel like you intentionally say things like this to irk people and propagate your perceived role as the old school, curmudgeony fan (it is very effective btw )

No source or anything. Just made up.

Kinda like Chris Paul opting out and back in.

Let's see: I already responded to this same nonsense before and tore apart what you were trying to say I said, when I showed you what I actually said.

But because you had no retort for that, here you are again trying the same old comment as if you didn't see my reply to you already when you tried that same thing.

If you really have no retort to what I replied to you, you have nothing to use, So instead you're gonna repeat the same false statements you said before, that got torn apart before and are just going to repeat that rhetoric as if getting it torn apart with what was actually said, didn't already happen.

So unless you can actually figure out a response to the comment of yours I tore up when you tried to make the same false comment, then you maybe shouldn't try to comment on what I've said at all.

Just like I told Judah on the last page... Argue against either of those notions if you like, but at LEAST get them right. Or you can keep repeating your same strawman cause you saw a reply you couldn't counter so you'd rather act like it didn't happen.

I liked "And" the most. And, as if Golden State was the next logical talking point in the progression. Then the "we" thing. Classic.

You do know that there is such a thing
called .. cap limit right? He might respect the Warriors or has thought about teaming up with the Warriors crew in the Bay but that doesn't mean it's gonna happen. only way he ends up there is if the Warriors are willing
to give up Klay and there is no chance of that happening.

I wonder if pg13 was upset at the Warriors for not trading for him.

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

The answer to that will depend on which team PG13 ends up on #narrative

He'd be mad at the Lakers too if that was the case.

If PG13 goes to GW, I don't mind if we can get Klay

Not sure how we can S&T a guy that is not on our team...

OKC would get Klay.

OK - what was PG supposed to say in that interview? I think he answered it in the only way he could reasonably expected to answer.

Not sure how we got from that to "PG is immature" or to "PG wants to be a Warrior."

Non-story imo.

Do you honestly believe that PG wouldn't want to be a Warrior?
