PostPosted: Mon Jul 02, 2018 5:22 am    Post subject: QFTOS: The LeBron to Los Angeles Edition

I'll get this started. Feel free to throw in others as the entire NBA reacts to this news!

Boston Celtics (Real GM)
Quote:
Laker fans should be stoked. They just went from a non playoff team to a top 4 team in the West and they aren’t done yet.


Quote:
So happy, finally he’s out of our hair in the east.


Quote:
So our two most hated things are now in one place. LeBron on the Lakers. Let that sink in for a second.


Quote:
Kyrie to Lebron: The East is ours now. You are not going to win a championship with the Lakers. Goodbye


Quote:
You’ve got to love the NBA. You can be as inept as the Lakers have been, but still land the greatest player of all time and turn around your fortune in two seconds. What a **** joke.


Quote:
a team with Kawi and Lebron isn't that scary tbh, Let the west beat each other up..fine with me..hate the Lakers all you want better for him to leave the conference and join them rather than playing him every year in the East. We'll be in the finals for the next several years and who knows we may even win one or two of them.


Quote:
**** the Lakers and **** Lebron, although I guess that goes without saying.


Quote:
I sit here sincerely hoping Kobe comes out of retirement.


Quote:
Have fun Lebron with the lakers because that is all you are going to be having. No rings.


Quote:
Hate the Warriors and Lakers. F that noise. Hoping OKC or even Houston knock them out.


Quote:
More talent out West means worse records for the Kings, Clippers and Grizzles. I'd say the chances of the Kings pick being top 5 now are really high and the chances of the Grizzles pick and Clippers pick not conveying next year are pretty high too.


Quote:
eastern conference talent level resembles third world nations


Quote:
Celtics didn't want lebron. Priceless.


Quote:
Lets get ready to RUMBLE!! Epic Lakers Vs Celtics battles in the near future!! Magic finally restoring the Lakers back to their rightful spot in the West. Danny Ainge taking over the East. NBA FO is pissing on themselves.


Quote:
Everything is so quiet with the celtics. Only one move was made.


Quote:
F#*$!.


Quote:
this rivalry is still gonna be juicy. Lakers-Celtics rivalry plus the added hatred of Lebron? This is gonna be goooooood



Quote:
Magic hasn't done anything so far outside of him and Pelinka drafting Kuzma. That's it. LBJ wanted to be in LA. I could've been the GM and he still would've signed.


Quote:
One of the best parts of Bron going to LA is how ridiculous Embiid looks after all that campaigning. Dude has some serious egg on his face after all his social media antics.


Quote:
As if we needed another reason to hate the Lakers


Quote:
Weird that I'm about the Lakers getting the best player in the league. As long as it wasn't the 76ers. East will be a cakewalk next year.


Quote:
Haaa.. Love LeBron to LA. Third team in the West and almost no way Kawhi gets traded there. This definitely feels like a life after basketball move by LeBron.


Quote:
Trust the exit “process” in philly


Quote:
EVERY 2nd game of a double header on TNT will be the Lakers now. They already had 20+ national broadcasts last season, and they'll probably have 40 this year. Nauseating.


Quote:
I think at this point LeBron is just praying that Curry or Durant get an injury. Maybe he brought Stephenson on board to help make that happen.


Quote:
Huge day for the Lakers. Signing Lebron, Stevenson and now McGee. JaVale is a good player. He was good with the Wizards and Nuggets and solid in limited minutes with the Warriors.


Quote:
rondo in purple/gold wud crush my heart to pieces


Quote:
Wow, what a bunch of total losers: [url=tinyurl.com/y7su8jnw]LINK[/url]


Quote:
Now the Lakers need to sign Dwight. McGee, Stephenson, Dwight, Lebron....the headcase, the crazy, the diva and the Queen.


Quote:
Lakers fans are pretty much basement dwellers and only come out when they get gifted a superstar.


Quote:
Screw the Lakers and I don't even want to see purple and gold on any page of any of our threads. Let's nip this in the bud now, please. They just don't belong in our forum for reporting or gawking purposes.

Hah, thanks for getting it started. I've been lurking on other boards actually, and the Celtics fans seems to be the "happiest" about this signing. Maybe because it actually benefits them. The east is theirs and the Sixers get embarrassed. I mean there are a couple of "screw the Lakers, I'll hate them forever, and I hate that they get to be relevant so fast" posts but I think in general they're happy. Excited to get the rivalry started up again.

Living on the East Coast near Boston is a glorious thing. All I heard was how much the Lakers suck and deserve to be in the basement for the past few years. Now all I will hear is the crying of Celtic fans as they watch championship after championship go to the Lakers.

Thanks for starting this thread Big Game. Pretty soon I've gotta face up to the fact it's Monday - anyone have time to do some Sixer Board diving?

Sixers forum

Quote:
Lakers/Celtics next 4 years in finals


Quote:
Now Sixers can focus on Kyle O’quinn


Quote:
so be it.

Embiid (finally conditioned and taking the paint, Simmons (generational talent early in his development), Fultz (a finely molded shot away from dominating the backcourt) ZSmith (holy cow! this kid is as athletic as they get.), Saric (like a rock), a little RoCo, maybe someone stashed, and a ton of cap and we're in great shape. a lot better than this past season, which was a rush. what the L?


Quote:
Another one bites the dust. I, just can't understand this. There's something about Philadelphia that KNOW superstar won't sign here. The Eagles just won the SB, & one would figure things would turn around. I guess not. (I'm a STEELERS fan)


Quote:
Quote:
Oh and James couldn’t win a championship with the likes of Kyre Irving and Kevin Love I highly doubt he can win with Leonard/Ball/Ingram and Co.


He did win one with them guys


Quote:
LeBron's getting pretty old to be taking a gap year. Is he going to be working in one of Magic's theaters, learning how to run a business?


Quote:
After thinking it through, I think I know what Lebron's thinking is here.

It's better for him to not make the Finals again, than to make it again and lose. He's made 9 Finals in his career do date, and won just 3. If he had made a 10th or even 11th and still ended up with 3 rings that would actually hurt his legacy instead of help it. He'd be jokingly referred to as "Mr. Silver Medal'.

By going to LA, he's basically ensuring that if he does make it to the Finals again, he won't be facing the impossible to beat GS Warriors (impossible to beat in his eyes).

Not a bad move on his part. And you certainly can't accuse him of ring chasing here.

Celtic fans are both happy and salty at the same time. This must be conflicting like that meme choosing which button to hit.

Then they convenientl forget they were/are a nothing franchise for over 20 years.

5 years was our worst stretch.

Bye.

People can pretend like there is some sort of negative in getting LeBron, but there is absolutely nothing, zero, zilch, negative or detrimental about signing the best player in the world on your team.

All these other fans would be celebrating by popping bottles if they got LeBron. Keep it up, we are building a super team and are going to be a force for years to come!

there's nothing negative about it, for sure. But if feels like Bird joining the Lakers in 1989.

Ironically, that year Bird played in 6 games because he was vexed by the spurs. Bone spurs, that is. See, we're ahead of the game, bro!

I would attribute it more to signing MJ in 1997, or Kobe in 2009. Thing is, LeBron is a physical freak of nature. We've never seen any other player like him in terms of athletic ability with his body type and age. He was able to put up career numbers in the post season last year (8 40 point games in the post season, and a 51 point game in the finals) along with near triple doubles every game. I think he's still got a solid 3 years ahead of him, and even then, he will still be a great passer, and solid enough scorer and rebounder to be effective possibly at 38-40 years old.

The interesting thing about all of this? His farewell tour will likely come as a Los Angeles Laker. That makes two of the greatest of our generation doing that with our franchise. Amazing.

Except LeBron was a Celtic tormentor, not a Celtic.

Remember how that old saying goes?

"The enemy of my enemy is my new Small Forward."

That might not be it word-for-word but you get it.

LOL, this actually ran through my mind as well. Hopefully he proves them wrong.
