AD still owes us a 2nd ring. Then it would make us the winner in the AD trade. Holding him to it.


Both teams won the trade. Pels don’t have championship or bust aspirations so they got a lot of pieces. Lakers got a championship. Rare win/win.


It’s funny because if New Orleans wins a championship this year (and they won’t) people here would lose their minds because we handed it to them. Ya know…because a championship makes it all worth it (just not for us.)

Exactly this. Instead of seeing how both teams got what they wanted relative to expectations, people just carve out their arguments based on an agenda.

I truly believe both teams won that trade, and that's fine by me.

I don't think anyone has faith that we will ever see MVP/DPOY caliber Anthony.

Yes you don't trust his health. Which is understandable.
Hoping he's healthy though, so he can show us his talent again to wake some people up.

Since joining the Lakers in 2020, Davis has participated in a total of 138 regular season games – less than 50% of what his team has played in that time. Yet, the Kentucky alum still has another two years remaining on his current contract, so it’s hard to see the Lakers parting ways with him any time soon.

However, according to a Western Conference Executive, who spoke with Heavy.com under the condition of anonymity, there are members of the Lakers front office that would prefer to explore trading the oft-injured big man, as the team looks to build for the future.

“A lot of that depends on where LeBron winds up. If he stays in Los Angeles and he stays a Laker, he had a lot personally invested in AD being there so, yes, in that case, Davis stays. But it is not a sure thing. There are some in that organization who would not mind seeing what they can bring back for AD, but they would not do it with LeBron there. You get to 2024, though, and maybe things change.

The Lakers have AD for two more years for sure, and they can only hope he stays healthy. But after that, they have to think, is this guy really our future? He can’t stay on the floor. And he has to think, do I want to be here without LeBron? That’s why the Lakers do not want to give up those future picks,” the executive told Heavy.com’s, Sean Deveney.

I’m going to venture a guess that that anonymous Western exec is Ainge…probably still bitter about what AD Sr. did to the running narrative that Danny’s treasure trove of picks almost gets you there till it doesn’t. In Utah, you ain’t going to parlay those Gobert picks for AD either bruh.
