I think it was after the Westbrook trade. But not certain


Everyone just looked at his stats, and when he came under a microscope for once, he completely wilted. Turns out his stats are not meaningful contributions towards winning basketball. And most didn't know how impactful losing KCP/Kuz/22nd/Trezz (and not re-signing AC) would be on this team.


I felt we were losing Trezz irrespective of Westbrook trade. Frank botched that one pretty good. He managed to piss off all 3 centers.

22nd pick was the toughest as we could have had Herb Jones & AC.


Imagine if we had a 9-10m expiring deal (Trezz) to send with a 1st (if we had to)? We could get something decent back.

Wouldn't it have been nice to have KCP/AC back, and Kuz to fill in as a starter when LBJ/AD got injured?

We just royally messed it up with Russ, and we can't even evaluate the full consequences of this trade until we know what it will cost us to dump him (or if we keep him, we're pissing away another season).

I think Lakers are negotiating through the media right now, trying to lower the 1st round price b/c that was the price last season, when Russ had 2 years on his deal.

I think that it's 70/30 in favor of Russ eventually being traded. Seems like things were really bad behind the scenes with him, and he isn't the type to change his game up either. Why saddle a new coach with Russ?

So which media writer is Jeanie's mouth piece? It used to be Kevin Ding.

Is it that guy from the Atlantic? Jovan Buha?

Mouth piece? Buha is not that at all.

Can't find one pro-Russ/Lakers piece out there, b/c the proof is in the pudding. We all witnessed the calamity and the numbers don't lie too.

What are you basing your theory on the Lakers negotiating through the media?

Last year, the minimum price had to include a Lakers 1st.

So why should the price still be the same now that 1 year is off Russ's ridiculous deal?

Therefore, of course they will plant it to make it appear that they can "live" with Russ coming back so that some sucker team will not think that the Lakers are desperate to unload Russ.

Oh, I thought you would write something like "bad press is still press, getting his name out there, garner trade interest" or something like that.

Need a trade partner? Detroit, New York, will cost you a first round pick.

Need a head coach? Nick Nurse will cost you a first round pick.

Need a general manager? Sam Presti will cost you a first round pick.

It's a meme at this point, the Lakers first round pick could end war in Ukraine.

One year of Dennis Schroeder on an expiring? Have a first round pick!

$87 million worth of declining Russell Westbrook, with multiple reports around the league being teams would *demand* *multiple* firsts to take him off Washington's hands? Have a first round pick!

We're the only team making you an offer for an expiring Anthony Davis, who has made clear to the entire NBA he will only wear a Laker uniform? Take all the firsts you possibly can!

It's a meme at this point because it's the most freely dispensed asset in the league. Hell even Chipotle charges you extra for guac. With a Laker first, all you have to do is ask.

Terry Stotts is intrigued with potentially coaching Russell Westbrook and believes he can help him be more effective and comfortable with his role than he was last season


I believe that. But by how much of an improvement?

LOL. Stotts saying what he can to get a gig. He’s had elite shooters in Dame/CJ and then he thinks he can fix Russ?

Honestly, as long as he fall in line in the playoff, we healthy and we sign some good complements, let Russ go crazy in RS

I am watching the Sparks post-game show and they just showed Russell Westbrook was in attendance and he gave Derek Fisher a big hug.

EDIT - oh. I guess that was the halftime not the post game show. Ankywhoo on a positive note the Sparks are ahead right now.

Is that real? If so, he can go to any of those teams easily in August….

You guys are gullible. This isn’t real. Look at the twitter account? Hoooooopcentral?

Duh.

Move on….just a click post. No one else is posting this.
It’s like that Ballsack account - they just post BS for clicks.

I would think people can figure out what is going on. LakerSD did clearly write "#sauces"
