I could totally see the Lakers going for Booker in 2024. And I'm not talking about Cory Booker.

That’s like 4 years! Kids would be in and out of High School by then!

What kind of window did the Lakers have after the Shaq trade when Kobe was 26 years old?


We didn't really have any hope until Bynum started playing like the best center in the league. We got Pau shortly after, without giving up LO or Bynum, and it blew the doors wide open.

Pau is one of my top 3 favorite Lakers players of all time. Even with all the frustration at the end of his tenure here, his contribution to the franchise and what he did for Kobe will never be forgotten.

I would love to see us go get Jaylen Brown. I think Brown + AD would be an incredible duo on both ends of the floor. Booker would be a nice pairing too, but, obviously, not as potent on the defensive end.


Give me Jamal Murray please!

My all too early prediction is it will be a Booker/AD for Lakers President/Vice President in 2024.

Jeanie showed her class by getting hit man Kevin Ding to write damning articles about her brother and the Lakers. That ship has sailed.


Only reason I don’t hate Jeanie as much as you is because of Deng and Mozgov. What Jeanie did was wrong and I don’t think Mitch/Jim did anything wrong - but man those 2 signings? What happened there I still don’t know.

Doesn’t change the fact that Jeanie is a huge hack. Sad because I used to love her until her father passed away.

Wow, Steve Ballmer announces he is straight-up buying the Forum for $400 million in cash.

That means the Clippers' new arena is going to happen.

Ballmer says he'll keep the Forum in business as a live music venue, and everybody who works there will get a job offer.

Basically, Ballmer gave Dolan and MSG godfather money and told him to (bleep) off with that lawsuit Boss move, and i can't even hate. Now, they can get the (bleep) out of Staples Center and take their divisional banners with them. Also, just found out that they covered/replaced their division banners with *possibly* a championship banner for this season: Source

You could make an argument for Lebron and the Lakers since they didn’t load manage much this season, although they might have in Late March to early April.

You could also make a case for Kawhi since he was in the finals and gets to rest even more. However, the Clippers could probably use the games to gel, the break might hurt them since they needed to build chemistry and continuity due to all their load management and integrating their deadline acquisitions.

I don’t hate Jeanie, I just think that she isn’t a good leader. Away from the organization she seems to be a nice person. We know from her leaked emails that Ballmer pulling this off won’t make her happy.

Good to see Ballmer donating to the COVID-19 efforts.

I really like what Kief brings to the Lakers. I hope Pelinka re-signs him. Bron, Brow, Kief and two 3 &D shooters to close games is what I want to see when the season resumes.

I don't see Lakers getting Devin Booker, nor would I want him.
