Maybe it's more Magic trying to trade the whole core He made Ingram untouchable remember..Ingram wasn't mentioned in the AD trade.


It's just weird because he was laying it on thick during the postgame.

Seems messed up if they actually sending them out this week.

I am a Bucs fan...just never heard anyone refer to a Ram with the common slogan Hurns Up....that is mostly used by U of Texas. A Ram with horns up would almost seem like a deformed Ram.

Btw, why would I need to be a closet fan of anyone? I am not from LA and do not live in LA.....and I could care less about the Rams.

He's not the GM you know?

He may have a say as most superstars should do, end of the day the buck stops with Magic and Pelinka.

I find it virtually unfathomable that nearly everything doesn't get run past him... as I believe it probably was for Kobe late in his career.

He will not be a passive bystander to what happens.

Well according to people on forums with fantastic sources backing them up Lebron is always the GM on any team he is in. We got a billionaire 5 time Nba championship winning legend as a GM but apparently he pisses his pants as soon as Lebron walks in.

A lot of Laker fans there..... why hasn't the clippers move to the OC

A lot of the talk RN is Ballmer and the city of Inglewood want to build a Clipper stadium there.
Lots of Wood residents don't want it built ( probably just die hard OG lakers/Forum fans)


Still feels kinda weird to me there is no Seattle Supersonics in the NBA. I'd like the Thunders to go back. But I guess the kids today when they get old will say, "The NBA feels weird with no Oklahoma City Thunders." LOL!

Clippers should go to Seattle.

Feels great to get a win again. Hopefully Kuz and Lebron can shake the rust off in time for the next game. Glad to have them back.

Yeah. Dare I say, we would be that good through injuries too.

I will say though, the Clips did shoot themselves in the foot at the end. So they're not totally that great

LeBron has never said anything bad about the Lakers youth and he isn't trying to trade them.

I wouldn't mind having Doc Rivers as the Lakers coach so long as no nepotism was involved

So when he asked for AD, he was simply confused and thought we could keep everyone...

Gotcha...

Kinda weird when both LeBron (14) and Rondo (13) have as many or more rebounds than all three of your centers combined (McGee 5, Chandler 5, Zubac 3)

One of the best FT shooting teams shot 14-26 (54%) from the line while we shot 80% with 35 attempts.

Missed most of this game, I’m assuming they just limited Kuzma’s minutes? Can’t afford to have the hip injury get re-aggravated.

Anthony Davis is better than anyone else on this team and just about anyone else in the NBA so of course he wants to play with him but I don't think that's a slam on any of them.

I'm not used to having Lebron back. I know this because I chalked this game up as a loss with about 40 seconds to go in the 4th quarter.

Jesus my heart

I think there's a difference between wanting a trade and wanting a trade at the cost of the entire team

Didn't say it was a slam... said he was being disingenuous by acting like they're his boys if he actually is in the process of trying to help acquire AD.

Nothing wrong with him wanting Davis... but he shouldn't play up the teammate angle while doing so. Makes him seem full of sh*t.
