We lost all of them for different reasons and with varying results (Dlo and Clarkson for cap space; Randle for nothing, but arguably for cap space as well).

By they are all gone. If we make that trade, we will have PG but still have Moz on the team. Not sure if we could have signed lebron in that scenario.

Interesting idea tho, thoughts?

If Paula George wanted to be a Laker, he'd be one. He's weak minded and lets his agent and Russell Westbrook lead him around like he's on a leash.

DLo brought back Lopez, who may be an important piece this year. And the only reason the Lakers have a chance to bring him in on a discount is because he was part of that trade, I think.

More importantly, the DLo trade included a 1st round pick coming back that turned into Kyle Kuzma.

In some ways, I'd rather have Kuzma than PG13 with Lebron on the roster and Kawhi a good possibility.

Clarkson also turned into a pick in Wagner who may pan out.

In retrospect, it would've been nice to get something for JR, but nothing you could really do there.

DLo trade got us Kuzma so no, I wouldn't have sent DLo for Paul George. Paul George couldn't beat Utah with WB on his team. Got nowhere with Indiana. Not sure why so many wanted him. Like I've been saying all along before, the Lakers dodged some bullets with Melo and DeRozan. They might have dodged another one in Paul George so we'll see.

Wow this really made me stop and think.

We'd have to offload Mozgov or Deng to get LeBron w/o DLO, Clarkson or Randle - so out of Ingram, Zo, Kuzma and we wouldn't have drafted Josh Hart.

LeBron's pretty good, so let's stick with that guy. We've kept a good # of the core.

In retrospect itís even clearer to me that he wasnít worth any assets. He CHOSE to be 2nd fiddle in a middle of nowhere with a franchise that hasnít and wonít win anything because he made a friend there? Lol.

No way he could have survived here in the big city with Lebron and the lights and the media and the expectations. In the closeout game vs the jazz what was he like 2-16 with 5 points and 6 turnovers? Thatís him...soft.

To me Kuzma has the potential to be better and is not a punk, plus we offloaded the Mosgov contract...so no, I think we all got blinded by possibly improving our squad that has been awful recently, but I honestly donít think heís the man for the job. Kawhi might not be either TBQH.

Nope.

PG's quote that the "Lakers didn't get him" when he wanted to go there shows that at his core he doesn't actually care about winning. Us holding out the year to keep our assets to be stronger if he signed was doing him a favour.

That he can't see that and prefers OKC right now just proves that he's comfortable as long as he's paid, liked, and has no pressure on him. AKA the opposite of a Laker.

wouldnt... and or didnt. we still arent sure what was offered. But either way.

Dlo = Brook, Kuzma and Hart.

Clarkson = Wagner, IT and Frye.

Randle = Rondo trade off with Pelicans.

So essentially, we still got value and assets back from the guys we had.

Pacers wanted Ingram or #2 pick, so no. George showed his true colors. If he was really about winning why not at least take a meeting with Magic and wait and see where LeBron goes? The Lakers have the better superstar better young players and more flexibility to add another star to the team. If he said it was about the $40 mil I would at least respect his decision.

If my understand is right, I dont think pacer want Dlo, JC and randle. They want BI or 2nd pick which magic un-reluctant to give them.
End day is we propose a trade with pacer, pacer reject and we did not give them what they desire, we move on, pacer move on, PG move on.

I think fans here slowly realize they seriously overrated Russell, Clarkson, and Randle

Funny how things have played out the past 2 yrs

Stop it. Donít try to create a narrative where there isnít one. Everyone here (I mean 80% when I say everyone) over valued Randle. My personal feeling about hi. Was that he was bully ball with not jumper and the rest of the NBA wouldnít value him. Come to find out, thatís exactly how it was. Clarkson wasn that good. Dlo May never live up to the talent and Nance was the cost of doing business. That is all.

I'm glad we got rid of the ones no longer here...

As for Paul George... We dodged a bullet. I admit that I didn't realize how mentally weak he is. After watching the 3rd part to his series; I came away feeling like he would have pissed us all off repeatedly with stupid comments and lackluster play.

George is a tailor made #2 guy with 3rd option tendencies.

So yeah... We're good.

Will y'all quit whining over PG. what the hell has he done in his career that validates all of this whining. He would have been a luxury, not a necessity. We caught the big fish. There are plenty of players that we can get through a trade or through free agency next summer that can fill what PG would have done. We have guys on our roster right now that have the potential to be as good if not better than PG.

That wasnít the trade offered

ESPN.com's Marc Stein reported the Lakers are attempting to trade the Nos. 27 and 28 picks along with Julius Randle or Jordan Clarkson for Indiana Pacers star Paul George.

Kuzma, Hart, T.Bryant and Randle for PG13... more than fair in this monday morning quarterbacking game... forget this PG13 foo, he don't wanna be here then he don't wanna be here. We got other superstar that wants to be in P n G. Move on

Seriously, (bleep) PG. We got LeBron, and PG is NOTHING compared to LeBron. Next summer, we'll get Kawhi, Klay, Butler or someone else to pair with him, which will be way better than having PG.
