He’s a little dirty and he’s a known flopper. An on terms of saying some really bad stuff with his trash talk he’s known to be the worst.
Like worse than KG calling Charlie Villanueva a Cancer patient.

Other than that strictly basketball wise, mid range game clutch shooting, playmaking , and Pitbull defense he’s one of the greatest to ever do it no doubt.

Jeannie Buss gonna run it back the same roster and Kurt Rambis as head coach. That’s the major change we will see.


I don’t think that would fly for season ticket holders.
They need to do more.

Suns talking ish. And it's not like Lebron would do anything anyway... He's best buddies with everyone. I miss KB.


LeBron is a frontrunner. Watch him run to the cavaliers as it's ready made team for him

Based on historical evidence, it's probable.


LeBron is under contract he’s not running anywhere

Yeah. Let's hope for miraculous turnover with same squad next season while everyone is one season older?


My point is LeBron isn’t going to join some other super team he can’t because he’s under contract I have absolutely no idea what LeBron James looks like next year


LeBron’s days of dominating nba landscape is over. He’s not the guy who can take any team he chooses turning it to a title contender, he’s not that guy anymore. I do think any top team has the need for LeBron going into next season unless they can dump a bad contract on the lakers with the trade.

Solid basketball player and mind. But flopper, dirty, whiner and also plays a style of basketball a la Harden, Nash and Billups where he spends half the game trying to bait you into B's fouls instead of just playing ball. Not my style. Also always acts like a good guy and leader, but is a major trash talker and has been known to cause mutiny in the locker room.

This.

Lebron and AD get stronger and health this offseason. Eat less tacos

Stanley and Austin coming back on cheap deals.

Resign Melo and Dwight for really limited roles.

Resign Malik hopefully on something affordable.

Im okay with bringing back Wenyen and DJA.


Find a way to get rid of Russ, THt, and Nunn

HAHAHA........and there goes the season!

Great effort by the Lakers, and LeBron's cheering on the bench.

LeBron is still not done though, he's got a BIG next two games coming up that were more important to him than this game, Denver, and Dallas. Make no mistake he will play against GSW and DEN, and we're sure to see some of the finest stat padding yet........oops I mean *overcoming adversity yet*.

Let's go Bron!!!! Get that

Ahhh I missed that Javale and Dwight selfie pregame.
Memories


Damn I say try to bring back Javale next season!

Many people defended moving on from him to get Gasol, claiming he was unplayable in the playoffs. That type of short sightedness is why the Lakers have moved on from so many players that they really need/could use now. Javale single handedly made Jamaal Murray not want to drive to the basket. This team would be far better with him in the middle, on both sides of the court.

Really?!?!?!?!?!?!

He is one of those players on the soul I hope doesn't win a ring. Lol


I've never understood the hate for Chris. I like him and his game. And please don't say it's because he flops. LBJ is I believe 3 in the leage for flopping LINK

Stanley, Reaves, and Gabriel are just bodies. Play them against good bench competition like the Suns and there’s just no comparison. They’re scrubs.

I don't think he's a dirty player. I think he got that from a hard play called dirty. Bron is a bigger flopper. #3 in the league. LINK

Dwight can't retire. He's got to much child support to pay.

Maybe so.

But on limited roles they could still be of some value.
Like Dwight should of been playing the Deandre Jordan role this season. Backup big off the bench.

Melo off the bench with maybe 10-15 minutes a game can still be of some use. Too many games this season where he played 25-35 minutes a game and that ain’t cutting it.

They need to do more.

If Kurt is a major voice behind the scenes and then becomes the coach, he’d get exposed really quick. Next year will have the same cast of characters, one year older, just as injury prone, a half step slower and less able to immediately demand double teams. Kurt would have to fire himself because he’d get accused of being a bad coach.

Lue did good for himself taking the Clippers job. He’d have been fired after this season if he took the Lakers’ job.

Obviously I don't know him so any feelings I have towards him aren't particularly real it's just basketball but he seems like he has a little big man syndrome. He irks. And yeah his flopping bugs too. I'll NEVER forget the helicopter flop.

Not making any excuses for Lebron but no way is he worse than CP3!

Russ on if he wants more chances to see what he can do with a healthy LeBron and AD: "I mean, that's the plan. But nothing is promised. ... Yes, we want to be able to see what that looks like, what that entails over the course of an 82-game season."

Will see.
An when I say limited their workload should be cut more than half.

I’d love like Robert Covington to come over but he just dropped 43 points the other night. Ballmer probaby gonna offer him the mini max
