It means they are teaming up, can’t deny the inevitable.

Totally agree. Still waiting to see what GA does for his signing.

We have nice assets to possibly get Giannis via trade if the Bucks don’t want to lose him for nothing the Bucks would have the luxury to get guys like Schroeder/Trezz/ and others if a S&T was consummated

If we win this year, Giannis coming here would even surpass Durant going to the Warriors. I don't think he will do that.

I don’t want Giannis. Not saying I won’t be a fan or I won’t root my ass off, but I don’t want to see my Lakers hated even more, smash the league most nights with three Hall of Fame same position players, only to lose to a more complete team in the Finals.

He doesn't fit with AD. Both AD and Giannis benefit from having a great PG feed them the ball, and Giannis is a terrible passer.

I'd rather we shelve the Giannis plan for the Beal plan

Based on Social Media, I have learned Giannis’ girlfriend is a Lakers fan. Last year he said he would love to team up with his brothers either in LA or Milwaukee. And that he idolizes Lebron, Kobe told him to be great, and he would love to team up with AD, KD, or Lebron in Milwaukee.

Beal bought property out here recently. I’m not saying he’s coming, but he fits AD’s timeline, and is awesome at the thing AD doesn’t do on the court.

If Giannis joins the Lakers and the Clippers somehow get Harden the rivalry would be intense between the Lakers and Clippers

AD/Giannis/LeBron vs Kawhi/Harden/PG13

It would be really something if he turns down that supermax contract.
