First off, just waking up to this news. As shocked as most of you are, I am not surprised one bit.

F**k Kawhi.

Obviously the Lakers knew because they had all these offers pending to fill out their roster.

To the insiders, who kept hopes up and their sources saying it was done, your sources suck and they didn't know squat. Obviously whoever had their hopes up, were very disconnected from this entire process.

I like the roster we are putting together. Some shooters now.

Anyone left to try to acquire?? Which vets? Bring in Vince Carter, Iggy? korver?

People are underrating us and the Warriors while overrating the Clippers right now. It's gonna be a dogfight.

Now let's move on and look forward.

I really do think a lot of Laker fans forget we got Anthony Davis. We will have a great season, regardless of what the Clippers did.

The only thing that worries me about clips is that bench, we need a lou and harrel stopper. AD can shutdown kawhi, we need morris to check harrel, and bradley for lou

Our team seems like they are just adding random shooting players to it, with no real direction.

As is, the Lakers are the 6th seed and an injury away from missing the playoffs.

Denver, Utah, Clippers, Houston, Portland are all currently better.

Right. All we need with Bron and Davis is an all star point guard who can dustribute tge ball and shoots well too.
Damn... with Bron and Davis, you can live with two other good players added to the team and compete for a championship.

(bleep) #2
(bleep) Clippers
We are going to beat both snakes, Balmer and Jerry West, and we will win the title so the entire world remembers who rules Los Angeles and to tie in titles with the Celtics.

They have much better depth than the Lakers.

Lakers also have the oldest star.

Houston is probably the team at risk out of that group.
