    I was really excited the nuggets got porter. Gotta swing big to even have a prayer in the West. No guarantee but glad they are going for it.

    Great value at #14 for sure. There was minor buzz he could go as high as 2

    I think RJ Barrett might end up getting Doncic'd... meaning his athleticism will get picked apart a bit.



    I haven't followed him as much but I believe he is similar to Doncic. A very crafty player , great passer etc. But not a Uber athlete



    Anyway he should go high



    FYI his dad is a Canadian basketball legend. Before we had guys do well in the NBA he was the best player on our national team. When guys like wennington or Rick Fox didnt play on the team, he did and was the captain

    Shaping up to be a very entertaining free agency. Can’t wait to see another team formed to take down GS.

    Well the Thunder aren't going to win any titles, but probably bought themselves 4 seasons of 50 wins and some playoff revenue.



    I like that they kept Jerami Grant. I thought they never clicked last year. I still think a top 6 of Westbrook/Adams/Roberson/George/Grant/Carmelo can win 55 games.



    That's probably a second round loss. But whatever. I like watching Russ

    Im surprised he signed for 4 years!



    Plus you know, if they get Leonard and boogie, than Durant will probably sign there too

    4 year is a boss move! No leverage plays with Magic.



    Chris Bosh might be coming.

    As a Spurs fan I want to move on from Kawhi but don't want something stupid in return like Dengs hideous contract. I would be fine with Kawhi staying through the year instead of getting crap back. I say suck it up buttercup and finish your contract instead of demanding a trade.

    One thing is certain. LeQueen can’t add to his finals lost anymore. The modern day wilt.



    This is a straight business move as he enter the twilight of his career. He's building a brand instead of contending for championships.

    How so? He joined the best franchise in sports, with a determined front office, cap space, 4 young asset players, all their draft picks, and a free agent destination. He signed for 3 + 1, how does any other destination have more potential over a 4 year time than LAL?

    the best franchise in sports? The yankees have something to say about that. He will be 34 starting 2018/2019 season. The clock is ticking. Golden state will be together for 2 more years. You're telling me by the time GSW break up, a 36 years old lebron can carry a team? I don't buy it.

    The Warriors are guaranteed for this year only. At the end of this season, Klay is an FA and Durant has an option.

    Lakers may still trade for Kawhi, and even if they don't they have an excellent chance of signing him next year.
  • jerebear21jerebear21 Don't Go Left ClubWRX Posts: 3,260 ClubWRX
    KD 1+1 is setting up for a max deal at GSW. That is guaranteed given his age when he options out next year. It's also the same reason why Lebron finally said yes to a 4 year deal. This is his last max deal.



    A GSW team without Klay is still the favorite to win it all.

    the 1+1 that KD signed means, he will be elligble for the super max if he opts out next season. If the front office thinks that the warriors can still win championships in the next 3-4 years they will pony up and pay Klay. I don't thnk you understand how deep the pockets are for this ownership group (dot com money and LA entertainment money). If the results stay the same they'll keep paying. They've already said as much
  • scratchswingerscratchswinger Members Posts: 16,202 ✭✭
    Obviously a lot of work to do. but the Lakers have put themselves in a great position to build a roster that can beat GSW. LeBron has proven over and over that he is far and away the best player on the court during the last 4 finals. The comparison between him and Durant is a big gap. The Lakers have the assets, the momentum, and the market to build a roster that can win a championship. Magic ain't stopping, the Lakers are coming.

    Oh there's a few guys who they could sign to get me on board! I am the world's biggest Bosh mark though.



    I'm interested in seeing what else they do. I wouldn't want Demarcus Cousins, unless it's a 1yr deal. Signing him to 4 years when that could end up a brutal contract wouldn't be good. Kawhi is obviously the target but the Spurs don't have to trade him to the Lakers. And Paul George re-signing in OKC is proof that sometimes you take a chance and a guy stays. So if i was LA i'd be very worried about Boston or Philly making a better offer. They will have to pony up

    I am interested in seeing this aswell. The repeater taxes are downright draconian, i don't have the facts but i'd bet their tax bill alone would be 100-200M if they keep this team together a few more years.



    I know the NBA owners are ballers, but no one likes paying that kind of money.

    ^^Bingo. They already on record to committing to this team for the next 3-4 years. Draymond wanting a max deal in 20/21 is the only way I see this team breaking up. By then, Lebron is 36/37 years old.



    Lakers need to get into the kawhi sweepstakes NOW if they want to try to dent the juggernaut. Waiting for another year means lebron is another year older.

    From what I have read a Boogie offer would be 1+1. I am not sold on Boogie, he is a great stat guy but he also checks out when he does not get a foul and rarely plays D. The only concern about Kawhi is the leg, he was arguably the second best player in the NBA before he got hurt. If you have any confidence he is healthy then the Lakers have to make the deal. It sounds like Kawhi is adamant about joining the Lakers. No way Ainge is willing to pony up with that risk, I could see Philly doing it but the Lakers can top any offer that does not include Embiid or Simmons. I think at this point it's all just lobbying for position and negotiations with the Spurs. Rob Pelinka must know a thing or two about negotiations, he got the Koby deal!

    Lots of championships, lots of stars, not too many awful seasons, no crooked or racist owners, no cheaters.... I'd say they're on the short list, along with the Cards, Steelers, Spurs, and Red Wings.

    He doesn’t have to be from Arizona to have his bio from there. With that said, the lakers have had the worst winning percentage in the nba (.300) the last 5 years.



    They are up there but far from the best run franchise in the league the last 20 years. I’d argue the patriots and the spurs have been the model.
