I may be late on this. But what the heck, Spencer Dinwiddie setting up a GoFundMe to determine his next team?

Also interesting the Lakers/Clips are the two teams shown...

1. LA kid
2. Ballmer is the new #1 NBA cash cow now. The clippers are now an attractive destination to players because richest owner willing to spend.

I’m sure Dinwiddie would love either team and he wants it out there.

I remember hearing it at the time and thinking about how stupid of a take it was. AD and Lebron's skillset are peanut butter and jelly. It was so obvious they were literally perfect for each other. Kawhi is plug and play? Really? When 1B on the Clippers plays the EXACT same game as Kawhi. How in the world did she come to that conclusion. What's pathetic is how many people before the season felt the same way in respect to both teams.

Lots of people predicted that AD and LeBron were the perfect duo only some people thought that it wasn’t gonna work out.

Exactly. Spencer on the clips would be scary. Just another versatile dawg.

I was more shocked by the idea of setting up a page and trying to circumvent the salary cap.

Yeah pretty ballsy, but I guess player empowerment just keeps growing and growing.

As for salary cap circumvention, Ballmer is doing what others before him have done. It’s part of the game. He obviously did it to land Kawhi. The NBA is just turning a blind eye because they are hell bent on having 2 teams succeed in both NY and LA.

Not a peep about Clippers or Nets bending the rules for the foreseeable future imo. They want those teams in the finals over the next 3-5 years. 4 teams in the 2 biggest markets is even more important from league point of view for $$ with the current China cluster F and worsening of that basketball relationship.

Great points, yeah i guess this is the way of the league now. It's crazy to think of the Lakers as not the team in the driver seat, not even in their own city.

As Michael Scott would say, oh how the turntables ...

LakerSD makes a good point about the good situation the Clippers are in but the Lakers are also in a good situation and also if I recall Dinwiddie wanted to be traded to the Lakers during this years trade deadline I’m not suggesting that he wouldn’t want to play for the Clippers but it’s a good thing that he seems to like the Lakers.

IG, the Lakers will always be the Lakers. Too much of an empire built up. Tradition and location, location, location.

The clippers are just the new “loud” competitor. Unfortunately, I think Ballmer is in it for the long haul so Jeanie has to keep up (legally and bending the rules). If she thinks she can’t financially or for other reasons, then we are fighting with one hand tied behind back...even with being the Lakers.

Talks of a new amnesty provision if the NBA decides to opt out of CBA deal with this pandemic.

Could help the Lakers get some talented guys on the cheap.

Blake Griffin
John Wall
Nic Batum
G.Hayward
M.Conley
Rudy Gay

$954 raised of $24,632,600 goal

Yeah not sure it's going to happen the way he's thinking but Dinwiddie is the perfect starting PG on the Lakers and he knows it. If the every got any closer I'd make a donation lol

Bojan Bogdanovic will undergo season-ending surgery on his right wrist, per @wojespn

He's expected to make a full recovery in time for 2020-21 season


Utah might now be a team that doesn’t want the season to resume. Bojan is a big loss for them.

The Jazz never had a chance even if Bojan was healthy they were a 2nd round team at best.

Just heard about the possible amnesty of a player at the end of the year. Anyone know if the Lakers can amnesty Deng? He's owed $15 million for the next 3 years. I know he was stretched..but if you amnesty his salary he won't be counted on the cap.

I would love it if Blake Griffin joined the Lakers and sticked it to the Clippers and plays like an all star with us, this amnesty thing is great for us especially since players might line up and play for us after teams use the amnesty provision.

Theoretically, the league and players union could negotiate an amnesty that includes removing a stretched players from the cap, though it's anyone's guess if they would. The stretch provision was put in place at the same time of the last amnesty about a decade ago, so there's no precedence to indicate what direction they might go on something like this.

Practically, it probably wouldn't matter that much for us. Removing Deng from the cap wouldn't give us anymore cap space in 20-21. Conceivably it could make a small difference in 21-22.

Thanks...Looking at their roster he seemed like the only logical choice, since most players besides Bron and AD take up $5 million or less on the cap. Green makes $15 million for one more year and KCP has a player option at $8 million which could go either way.

We don't have any big salaries or long contracts we want to get rid off, so it's unlikely we'd amnesty anyone. We'd just hope some other team amnesties someone we like who will sign here for the minimum.
