I doubt Harrell agrees to be S&T to OKC.

And oh, OKC has most of the Clips future 1st in the next 6-7 years. I don't see how they have anywhere near the assets to get CP3.


Look...any team is capable of doing anything...except the Lakers.

Are you and VLF secret email buddies?


he is being sarcastic.

dont feed the VLF troll jodeke


I don't think VLF's a troll. He's opinionated and many times way off base but I don't think he purposely trolls. IMO he's just uninformed. He's the only mod I've ever gotten into heated debates with. I kinda like the guy.


thats exactly why he is an attention seeking troll

Time to lock this up.

Stephen A was just on First Take and said flat out CP3 doesn't want to play for the Lakers because they already won a championship and he doesn't want to take the easy route to a championship. Basically said CP3 wants to be a major reason a team wins a championship. He mentioned the Clippers as the team he wants.

Makes sense because CP3 despite being friends with LeBron likes to be the alpha on the team.


Not that I thought we were getting him anyway but this pretty much confirms he's not coming even if he wanted to.


The feeling is mutual. I never wanted him anyways. Glad I don't have to worry about it anymore.

Kawhi recruiting CP3 is funny, it's not like he's a free agent, unless Kawhi has turned his back on PG13 and get him traded since he sees CP3 as his newest mistress.

Didn't say he wasn't attention seeking. In fact I implied that in a post to him. I stand by I don't think he's a troll. I think VLF gets a kick out of pulling people's chains.

VLF likes to get a rise out of his fanboys. Personally, I'd like to see a lot fewer posts about whether VLF is a troll or a Clippers fan, whether he should be banned, or whether we should have an ignore feature. This seems to flare up about once a week.

Yeah, I’m sure most of us came to these “grounds” to talk Laker hoops...not troll hunting.

There are some solid b-ball takes here and if members just kept it at that, we’d have some solid and constructive back and forths here.

Bottomline: Ventura knows his hoops and the folks disagreeing with his takes know their hoops as well. Just stick to that discussion fam...what y’all say we hug it out?

Anyways back to hoops...the real rival is Boston and they got assets. I’m really hoping they don’t land Cp3, Jrue or whatever worthy 2way playmaker. We need to continue on the up and up, while they continue to stall. I just finally want to one up those dbags.

Agree. If one disagrees, state it and move on.

That would be amusing if PG got shipped out after everything he did spurning the Lakers and OKC.

Playoff P was always going to be the scapegoat if they lost. The only question is Presti willing to deal with the Clippers and help them given all those picks.

CP3 (if he stays healthy) would make the Clippers formidable. PG is a choker and Harrell is unplayable in key playoff matchups.

Fans aren't giving the Celtics enough credit. They have a young talented squad. They're only missing a peice or 2. Injuries hurt them last year. I'd be on the lookout for Brooklyn. I don't think they'll go anywhere. They have the talent. I don't think they have the right leadership. IMO D'Antoni and Nash aren't the right leaders.

They have one more year before they need to start paying people. Tatum for example will be paid 9 mil this season then the max afterward. Brown was getting paid 6.5 million last season, will be getting paid 23 million this season. Haywood is getting paid 34 million this season, so he's gone next year almost certainly. Take into account a decreasing salary cap with Covid and their ability to bring in anyone else is reduced. Though they do have great assets for a trade

not a contender... so no Lakers, Clippers, Warriors

Is Phoenix that close? Portland?

Banning him would accomplish this.

But in seriousness...I swipe on by 95% of his posts and have no doubt he's a former Laker fan that backed the wrong Buss. He's taken a principled stand to despise her publicly in loyalty of Jimmy.

That Jeannie got Bron and then won it all the very next year making moves just like Dr. Buss used to just makes the hatred for her grow like he's got a little Emperor Palpatine imploring him to let the hate flow through him, but not realizing he's no jedi.

VLF is a good conversation starter and is either ignorant or intentionally inflammatory out of enjoyment.

He's not my cup of tea but is good for LG. It's nice having a resident pot stirrer.

OK they have one more year. We're talking about next season. I don't think Hayward's not going anywhere. The Celts will match any offer.

The salary cap and COVID is going to be a challenge for every team. The Lakers face the same challenges.

He's no Jerry West but Ainge's a good GM. He'll keep the Celtics relative. Pelenka's new to the chair. I hope he can meet the coming challenge.
