Trade for PG or sign him as a FA?

Maybe trade Ingram to get rid of Moz? Keep DLo, draft Zo.

Sign PG and LBJ?

P.S. I knew we messed up by trading him but damn did they really mess up.

He bringing it all together at 22? Sucks to be right.

What's up with y'all and trading away young potential? Ingram wouldn't have been a good trade, just as well as DLO is not a good trade, just as well as trading away all our youth for 1 player isn't a good trade. We need more patience and groom our own stars, rather than shooting for the stars.

I think there were multiple scenarios. Whether you trade for George or just don’t run him and his agent off with what you do with the other clients. Probably have to move somebody to dump salary (although 28th pick and a future -st probably get it done) for Bron, but lots of ways to improve your shot at George.

That was my dream scenario. It felt magic couldn't wait to unload him though.

I think if Randle and DLo were treated better, PG woulda probably came here

I knew from the minute he was hired that Russell was gone.

Replying to @ReedWallach
On the season only 10% of DLo’s FGA have come in the restricted area, but over the last 6 games that’s up to 15%. He’s finishing too. On the season he’s shot 54% in the RA which accounts for 11% of his makes, but over the last 6 he’s shooting 71% (30% of makes). FT Rate up 7% too

Keeping the Showtime guys happy is more important than anything else... this point had to be impressed on young, upstarts like DLO

The irony is that Jim/Mitch installed Byron who basically was the worst thing for DLO.

Then Magic comes in, and he's buddies with Byron, so the DLO well is considerably poisoned.

So basically it isn't Jim/Mitch/Magic, it goes back to the Parking Brake.

This is pretty much fact. PG, Randle and D'Lo all have the same agent and, if I'm not mistaken, he put out a statement questioning the Lakers management prior to FA.

“He’s not afraid of the moment,” Nuggets coach Mike Malone said last Wednesday, hours before Russell cooked him with 27 points and 11 assists. “He’s made big, big shots and plays for them, and when you take away the jump shot, he has an ability to get into the lane. He’s got a great mid-range game, floater—one of the more efficient mid-range games in the NBA—and he’s making his teammates better.”


Well damn. Blow by speed FOR THE WIN!

Bruh, besides the Lakers, I've watched a ton of Nets ball just because I love the kids game. I haven't watched a nets game in its entirety since the 2002 finals.

I can't watch Nets games b/c I'm blacked out on NBA League Pass (I'm a cord cutter).

Same here. I try to make times to watch Nets game as much as I do Lakers. They're pretty much my unoffical second favorite team.

I'm surprised he's shown that much restraint up until now. My petty ass would have been talking (bleep) non-stop.

“I can’t imagine what they’re trying to block out,” Russell says. Later, he adds: “If [the Lakers] didn’t let me go then, they were gonna let me go now, and I’d be going through what they’re going through. Best thing that happened in my career.”

They're fun to watch. Multiple guys that can handle the ball, shoot it with consistency, make plays and go to the rim.

Shame on so many here too giving up on the kid or just straight trashing him when the talent was so evident.

I think there was always a fracture in the organization and I think Jeannie liked Byron. Jim/Mitch werent big on him hence the weird, multiple interviews

That would have been a team ready to make noise for a few years. On the brightside, we are now controlled by Klutch

Btw, this is our reputation now. Maybe some older players may still wanna come play with us, but younger players know how we treated our young core. As they age, our reputation will spread
