Lol that's because LA is the best place to live in the world. Everyone wants to live here.

At least we don't have to swindle other teams for free draft picks or legends

Calm down, old man. You guys have had quite a bit of luck these past couple of years.

Well, there was Kwame Brown for Pau Gasol (the draft rights to Marc Gasol not withstanding). Also, the number one pick that became Magic Johnson in a trade that compensated them for the Jazz signing Gail Goodrich, the number one pick that became James Worthy in a trade with Cleveland involving no players of significance, and Vlade Divac for Kobe Bryant.

With regards to PG, if the rumors are true, and it is the Woj that is reporting it. The report says PG does not want to go anywhere but LA. If so, it sounds like all the Lakers have to do is make some lazy effort or send lame trade proposals to Indiana. Then if that falls through try to sign PG during the 2018 offseason instead.

I know it is ludicrous and near impossible, but a straight up Deng for PG swap is sure to set the discussion boards on fire. :lol:

Why need a trade? When you can have him for free next summer? Let the Cavs trade for him, he wins a chip and then comes to the Lakers. You don't lose Randle or anyone neither no picks. And the guy doesn't give a f*k if you are not contenders right away because he already has the ring. GG

Sounds like the pacers have been trying to engage teams into a bidding war and it seems to be working. I mean, it sucks to give up stuff for him when you could just get him for free but a lot can happen in a year so it's no guarantee

Sounds like dlo+28th for George is a pretty even trade but it's on the pacers to get something for him before he walks and they get nothing. I say they force the pacers to take moz or Deng too

Yeah, a dude going to play for his hometown team in hopes of following in his idols footsteps to bring a team back from the doldrums is so similar to a dude teaming up with two other super stars in their prime and a dude who almost beat a 72-10 team but ended up joining them citing the decision to be the hardest road.

You don't hate LA though. :lol:

Just got notified by the bleacher report app. DLo and Mozgov to the Nets for Brook Lopez and the 27th first round pick. The amount of potential DLo has makes me wonder what the fuck just happened. Why in the name of God would you go for an aging Brook Lopez when you can play Randle and Lance Jr. and develop them into something better. What..the..fuck

Wow, they must have been desperate to dump mozgovs contract. Ball does make Russell expendable, but damn. However, Brook is a solid solid center that will fit this year in the position that they are weakest and could be part of a really good team if they keep him and sign George.

If this move was made to free cap space and the Lakers actually sign PG13, nice. Could've been better, but nice.
If they can't land Paul George though, Magic Johnson is going dooown.

Lopez's contract is expiring so there will be space to sign George outright, but it would be a bonus if we can keep Lopez too. Then the trade would be essentially DLo & Mozgov for Lopez, 27th pick, and George. Best case scenario, obviously, but that's a potential to get better really fast in just one years time. It would have taken Russell much longer than that to make a big improvement

I actually like this move. Better for Russell it was buss's signing of Moz was his ticket out of town instead of being a bust. Still think that guy will be a good player.

Lopez and randle down low will be an adventure for a year

Now dump Deng and here comes George and ljames

Has Lebron even said he wants to play for the Lakers?

Man, that kid is gonna be special. This truly sucks. #2, Ingram and Russell, that's all they didn't have to trade.

Guess that does solve the "which position will George play"...if George even lands up being a Laker.

If they threw away Russell for no George...damn. What the fuck.

No, but his wife stated she wants to spend the rest of her days in LA or something. Most cases, a fact like this would be considered a joke in any free agency scenario. Not in Lebron's case though. His wife always has the last word and she is one hell of a woman

Lakers sought to trade the second pick for the Kings two picks. They were gonna trade one of those picks and the 27/28 and a player to Indy. Sacramento refused. - Per David Aldridge.

At least now we know that they're for sure drafting Lonzo... otherwise, shitty trade. Brook Lopez is injury prone and a liability. Russell has a chance to truly shine. Too bad that he goes from one hopeless situation to another. At least he'll get the ball in his hands. He could be a Most Improved candidate this year.

You all misunderstand, Russell being traded had nothing to do with any future moves for PG, the move was actually to upease SwaggyP and hopefully Young won't opt out. lol

Brook has never been a favorite player of mine, but really really trying to be positive here. Brook is kind of underrated as a defender and has always been a solid scorer. He was surprising with the rate of 3 pt shots he made last year. Overall I dislike Brook because he is a piss poor rebounder, yet I would like to find out though what kind of system the Lakers will try to play next season. Maybe playing alongside black/nance/ingram can make up for Brook weakness on rebounds. I would think that Mozgov might have some outright trade value and that summarily dumping Russell on practically the first offer seems rushed. I know everyone is kind of disappointed and would have wanted Magic to have held out for more. But I think as trades go in the NBA, rookie GMs and executives usually gets shivved on deals.

Same here. Played twice as a PF & then as a C after being drafted by Ind & Sixers, demanded to be traded to LA. Whenever I grab the rebound and get a chance to run with the ball, then I see Russell with either Kobe, Williams or Nick Young at the wings, I am almost always never passing to Russell. And if Russell has the ball and looks like he will take it to the hole. I am going to demand for the ball before he does so even if it costs me player points. lol

This is purely a money move. They do not intend to resign Lopez. To dump Mozgov's salary thay had to add something valuable, and that was D-Lo. Actually, it seems, just like me, the Lakers are not high on him. He is a cancer in the lockerroom (he even liked a tweet saying - don't draft lonzo -), he is not a winner, and his "brat-status" makes you doubt about how much more he is going to improve. Him and Lonzo cooperation was risky.

This is good for both teams. Nets get a young player in addition to a bad salary player. This way, they do not need to make any ""big"" FA move, since Russell along will be enough to sell crowd at the beginning of the regular season. Lin is probably gone too. Lakers have been known to build through FA and trades, and actually, relying that much on draft picks is not a sure thing. Do Philly and Minnesota look even like 8th seeders? This gives the Lakers free room for George and whoever more wants to come, does not create any problem on the backourt and releases them from the virus they had on the team.

[b]Sauru[/u], if you think this trade makes the BKN pick worse, you are not a real Cs fan. Just joking, what makes you think DLo-Moz is winning more games than Lin-Lopez? Russell will probably put better stats and shoot everything that goes in his hands, but I'm really sure this ends up in more losses, not wins. He is not a winner neither a leader at all.

I still see no reason as to why Lebron would leave Kyrie Irving & Kevin Love to join Paul George just...because his wife said she likes Los Angeles.

Anyways, Nick Young opted out of his contract, he's a free agent now.

Anyways, Nick Young opted out of his contract, he's a free agent now.


i think it greatly depends on how the young guys play this season. if they work out it could very well be a better team. however he would be losing in the semi finals instead of the finals out there

Ball, Randle and Ingram play better than Kyrie and Kevin?

I'm a Laker fan and I find those lofty goals for the youngins.

My prayers have been answered. :bowdown:

that's another 5 mil off the books. Here's to hoping they just keep the space for next offseason instead of blowing it on shitty overrated veterans again

I don't think that both Lebron and George are possible because with all free agents gone, they'll have about 43 mil and George will take up like 30+ of that. Also, I think Randle will be a free agent as well so that will cut into some funds but they can go over the cap to keep him. Somehow Deng is making 18 mil :shock: so dumping him on a taker could help keep Lopez or get Lebron if he takes a pay cut
