Would you trade Kuzma, THT, Schroeder, and Harrell for Harden?

our lineup ends up looking like

Harden/AC
KCP/Wes Matthews
Lebron
AD/Kieff
Gasol/ Filler Center

We Gut our youth for the future, but almost guarantee another ring. I know its too early for this, but just a hypothetical situation

Clippers have more of a need for Harden then we do.

Absolutely not.

1. Ruins our depth
2. Ruins the team chemistry already built
3. Harden needs the ball 24/7 in his hand
4. Hardens personality is a big negative
5. We’re trying to get younger to match AD’s age, not sign another 31 year old star who will start to decline in three years or so.

No. I'm not trading potentially 7 or 8 years of THT excellence for 2 years of grumpy Harden. Not when we have a championship calibre team in the present and THT is a part of the future now that we've given up Brandon Future-MVP Ingram

Not possible due to hard cap,but yes.

Gasol/Dedmon
AD/Morris/Dudley
LeBron/Korver/McKinnie
Harden/Matthews
KCP/Caruso/Napier

Comes down to you dont turn down LeBron/Haden/AD plus complimentary parts like KCP, Gasol, Caruso, Matthews, Morris

The answer is definitely no.
Our depth currently makes our chance of repeating highly possible.

But just for fun we cant deny what a 3 headed monster James, James, and AD would be.

An if anyone can turn a dysfunctional superstar talent into a Champion, it’s Lebron.

I wouldn't, but Houston or Dreamshake would be crazy to turn down that package. That's a hell of a haul for a grumpy 31 yr old dude. But I see Houston being delusional about Harden's value and want a package similar to AD package with talented players as well as a bunch of picks.

I guess he would help the LA strip club economy.
But I'm glad trading for him isn't a choice we have to make.

So Schroeder, Trez, Kuzma, and THT for Harden. That's too much. Besides, I don't think the salary match up. Harden's getting paid 41 mill.

We already have a 20-year old version of him.

building a 3-star squad from scratch at the expense of potential all-stars youths but still a lottery team, ok, but when you already have an improved championship squad that’s looking like the best and the deepest in the league, nah

F^%$ no. If the Lakers ever "won" a championship with Harden, it would finally validate all the BS takes that the refs gave it to them. Without ref assistance, Harden is miserable. The only thing more miserable are actual basketball fans who have to watch him play his horrific flop and jerk game.

Harden would never get the same calls wearing a Laker uniform. Just look how the zebras treated Shaq, Kobe and now Lebron.

IDC who we're giving up for him the answer will always be a hard NO. You see the last two seasons now where everyone is overpassing and cheering each other on? Harden won't be having that for long, gotta get those numbers.

We're the far and away favorites this season with an extremely bright and flexible future. You don't even take a call from the Rockets. Let him go rot the rest of his career somewhere else and make it rain in strip clubs country wide and get a few more jerseys retired that way.

The Lakers? No.

Other teams? Yes. They all need franchise players.

Definitely yes for me. If we can move Schroeder, KCP, Kuz and another filler , it’s a yes for me.
